Response: No I would not go that far. I just think that the Jews do not have the complete view of God. Their view of God is not the finished modal.

Response: Well first of all there are some jews who do believe in a triune God. We call them messianic jews and they accept that Jesus has died on the cross. And again, I think that Judaism is not complete. It has some truth within it, but I don't see it as being complete. The only way for it too be complete is through them acknowledging the truth of Christ.
Remember Christ called himself the *way*. The way is the *way* away from Judaism. Because he is the truth and the life.

Response: I think it does apply to not only modern day jews, but to all people in all aspects of life. I don't view it as a book without any significance for today.
