How do Jews explain the resurrection of Jesus?

Matthew 28:10 Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.

Now when they were going, behold, some of the watch came into the city, and shewed unto the chief priests all the things that were done. And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gav e large money unto the soldiers, Saying, Say you, His disciples came by night, and stole him away while we slept. And if this come to the governor’s ears, we will persuade him, and secure you. So they took the money, and did as they were taught: and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day.

Indeed..... one day they will repent for rejecting their Messiah:

Zech: 12:9 ¶ And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourns for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn. In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon. And the land shall mourn, every family apart; the family of the house of David apart, and their wives apart; the family of the house of Nathan apart, and their wives apart; {every … : Heb. Families, families } The family of the house of Levi apart, and their wives apart; the family of Shimei apart, and their wives apart; {of Shimei: or, of Simeon, as LXX } All the families that remain, every family apart, and their wives apart.

This will happen when Jesus returns and then the veil will be lifted from the Jews and they will once again understand God's revelation in the scriptures about His beloved uniquely begotten son!

Great question that requires a three part answer that can sum up humankind's view in general of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus.

The first group secular and atheist by nature and their mantra rejects the concept of any God, but themselves and have given to mankind such wonderful things as Marxism and the ACLU to enjoy. This group is in rebellion and in direct opposition against any kingdom message, as they serve another master!

The second group religious orthodox into this general group many subgroups fall such as Ultra etc. Following the teachings of the Torah and the Talmud, ancient rabbinic writings on Jewish law and tradition (the Mishna and the Gemara). 

Generally in Synagogues Isaiah 53 is not read, but if questions about it arise rabbinic teaching states that it references Israel and her persecution by gentile nations and the infallible crusading Roman Catholic Church and others.

Jesus being a Christian creation, this name is never spoken and when any reference is made to Him it's in the mocking form of "THAT MAN". Matthew 28:15 is how they reference the resurrection if at all.

The third group is the Messianic Jews or Hebrew Christians who believe Jesus is the promised Messiah of Israel as prophesied in the Jewish scriptures.
The one new man created by the Lord Jesus and His completed work on the cross Ephesians 2:15 and then Ephesians 2:18-22

It's the first two groups of humankind, that we as the one new man in Lord Jesus must bring the the kingdom message of reconciliation to. But why you may ask, because they have to cry out to Him who they have pierced, before He can return and so we must labor while there is still light....

In the Lord's freedom always ready and watching......warrior on
