Andy  3 photo Andy Mangus I am a Christian since October 1979 & devoted truth seeker.
With a simple answer: YES. God is 'God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit! He is 3 persons in one. Jesus 'was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God'. And, 'the Word became flesh'; His name is Jesus! The Holy Bible, within its 'God breathed' scriptures, tells us that God, the Father is sitting on His throne and that Jesus sits at the right hand of the Throne in Heaven. Jesus will return in His chosen time to 'receive unto himself the dead in Christ -AND- those that are still living that have asked and received His eternal salvation by faith and trust in Him as their personal Lord and Savior. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your mind and with all your strength! God tells us in His Holy Bible that His name is 'I AM'. He is, has always and always will be everlasting to everlasting! Simply stated, He is GOD! ~~Andy~~

Why Jews Don't Believe In Jesus:

For 2,000 years Jews have rejected the Christian idea of Jesus as messiah. Why?
According to them:
1.	Jesus Did Not Fulfill the Messianic Prophecies
2.	Jesus Did Not Embody the Personal Qualifications of Messiah (Torah Observance
The Messiah will lead the Jewish people to full Torah observance. The Torah states that all mitzvot remain binding forever, and anyone coming to change the Torah is immediately identified as a false prophet. (Deut. 13:1-4)
Throughout the New Testament, Jesus contradicts the Torah and states that its commandments are no longer applicable. For example, John 9:14 records that Jesus made a paste in violation of Shabbat, which caused the Pharisees to say (verse 16), "He does not observe Shabbat!"

3) Mistranslated Verses "Referring" to Jesus
4) Jewish Belief is Based Solely on National Revelation
5) They are Waiting for the Messiah.
