already raised Jesus from the dead and that he was alive walking next to them (see, Luke 24:21) ─────────────────────────────────

J. CHRISTOPHER GARRISON is a Protestant Evangelical theologian who works to promote the biblical teachings of Messiah Jesus' New Covenant Judaism.
In this website, you will learn, among other things...
That to achieve the full task Jews have expected of him—redeeming Israel and completing Gentile world salvation—there have been three separate stages in the work of Jesus the Messiah: (1) the Atonement & Resurrection stage; (2) the Gentile stage (represented by two thousand years of Gentile Christianity); and (3) the Jewish (or “Jewish redemption”) stage. In fulfillment of the Messiah’s prophecy (see below), the Jewish redemption stage has already begun
Why and how it is that the religion Jesus founded was not Gentile. Instead, it was a form of Judaism that revolved around the Hebrew Bible concept of “berit hadashah” (חדשה ברית), meaning “New Covenant.” This Hebrew concept first appeared in the writings of Jeremiah, one of the great prophets of Judaism. Compare for example Jeremiah 31:31 with the words of Jesus in Luke 22:20. Hence, an unbroken though evolutionary continuity exists between historic Judaism and the Jewish religion of Jesus. “Christianity,” a name of Gentile origin, is not found in the New Testament—a work authored by Jews who followed the “New Covenant” Judaism of Jesus
That with regard to the Messiah’s prophecy on Jerusalem and the completion (or “fulfillment”) of his Gentile work—see, Luke 21:24: “Jerusalem will be trampled on by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled”—on June 7, 1967, the day Jerusalem fell to Jewish control, the Messiah’s prophecy was fulfilled. Hence, this marked the end of the Messiah’s second (or Gentile-centered stage). Accordingly, as of June 7, 1967, the God of the Jews formally placed biblical history in a “post-Christian era.” Abundant social and political signs are confirming this is an ongoing present reality
That as the 1960s “culture wars” were driving Gentile Christianity and its values into secular obsolescence and irrelevance, the God of the Jews had already begun to turn his main focus of attention to the redemption and salvation of his Jewish people. It began with God ending the Holocaust suffering of his people and bringing them back to the land of their ancestors. Prior to this time and up to the end of the 1960s, except for a small Jewish remnant, the Jewish people as a majority had remained stiffly hardened and indifferent toward Jesus the Messiah. However, in fulfillment of a prophecy from Paul (see below) and since the fall of Jerusalem to the Jews at the end of the 1960s, there are now signs that the negative Jewish mindset against the Messiah is changing in a positive direction
That the start of the Messiah’s "Jewish redemption" was in fulfillment of Paul’s prophecy, which predicted an eventual Jewish majority change of heart toward the Messiah.This was to be followed by the redemption or “salvation” of Israel (meaning, the Jews). According to the words of Paul’s prophecy, the Jewish change of heart and the redemption of the majority of his Jewish kinsmen was formally to begin once the Messiah’s Gentile work had reached its “fullness” of completion—see from Paul in Romans 11:25-26: “A partial hardening [against the Messiah] has happened to Israel until the fullness [or times] of the Gentiles has come in [which occurred on June 7, 1967]; and so [or, ‘then’] all Israel will be saved.” Hence, as of the fall of Jerusalem to Jewish control—the Messiah’s marker for the formal end of his Gentile stage—the Messiah’s redemption of Israel (or the Jews) officially began. As a result, we are now in the Messiah’s final (or Jewish stage) just prior to his return.
That as one of several remarkable signs (see the bottom of this webpage for other signs) serving to confirm the veracity of Paul's prophetic prediction of the Jewish change of heart and the redemption of the Jews—specifically, that this is currently ongoing—on April 5, 2012, CNN cable news reported online an emerging Jewish reconciliation with and acceptance of Jesus as follows:
for their part, tended largely to ignore Jesus. That's changing now.
In the past year, a spate of Jewish authors, from the popular to the
rabbinic to the scholarly, have wrestled with what Jews should think
about Jesus. And overwhelmingly, they are coming up with positive
answers, urging their fellow Jews to learn about Jesus, understand him
and claim him as one of their own"
(see, "Jews reclaim Jesus as one of their own").
the “times of the Gentiles (or Christianity)” officially over, why
Gentile followers of the Messiah must now adjust, accept, and re-orient
themselves to the new Jewish era and reality that is now on the rise according to the absolute and sovereign will of God
many other topics of vital relevance to our present transitional
era—from Gentile-Christian to Jewish-centered times—where world history
is quickly reaching a tumultuous climax... centered on the Jews, Jesus the
Messiah and New Covenant Judaism as the winning side of end-time
