Personally, I don't see much difference between the Catholic Priesthood and Rabbinic, Orthodox Jewry. Okay, so you want me to do a dissertation of why. [keep in mind, I have no hate in me]

I believe in the 1st coming of the Messiah as a suffering servant born Jewish for a KaBillion reasons!
I believe that Catholicism tossed out much of those Jewish or Hebraic Reasons. As a result, I believe that much of Christianity lacks the Hebraic reality of the Bible.
I believe the Talmud talks about the suffering servant extensively depending on what era or time frame one happens to be researching. I believe that to suggest that the Oral Torah supersedes the written Torah is what supports Judaism (A religious system)
I would rather be taught from one Messianic Jewish Teacher recanting words from the Bible then to sit in a room full of 500 Orthodox Rabbis teaching me the wisdom of Talmudic writings. Rabbi Itzahk Shapira explains correctly in my opinion.
The HOLY SCRIPTURES are the HOLY SCRIPTURES...meaning, FROM YAHWEH.
I think that Christianity has been deceived into believing almost the direct opposite of the Life and times of the LION OF THE TRIBE OF YEHUDA, or at best a mixture of pagan idolatry and Biblical truth.
I am certain that Adam did not see an Orthodox Jew or a Vatican Christian when he opened his eyes. I believe that the statute of Nebuchadnezzar is a picture of RELIGION made manifest. I believe that the statute like Goliath (The fleshly representation) is doomed .
I absolutely believe that from the time of the Beginning until the birth of the Messiah in flesh that he has been very busy building a kingdom in the earth. In other words, I think God can be a baby, a man, or whatever he wants to be, when every he wants to be. Everything that we have come to know in life is because of him not a Rabbi, a Priest, Professor or talking donkey, alone!
I think God can come through a virgin girl or a stick of gum if he wants to! The LORD preferred to make us out of dirt but
His Father wanted him to come through one of his daughters.
