Why Ramban could not accept Christianity


"I cannot believe in his messiahship because the prophet says (Psalms 72:8) "He will have dominion from sea to sea, and from the river to the ends of the earth" and he did not have dominion...

"The prophet also says (Jeremiah 31:33) "No longer shall they teach one another, or say to each other, 'Know the Lord,' for they shall all know Me..." And it says (Isaiah 11:9) "The earth will be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea." It says (Isaiah 2:4) "they shall beat their swords [into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks;] nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more." But from his time until now the world is full of murder and theft..."

(Kitvei Ramban, 1:311)

Have a great day,
