No, they are Christians who believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour who has already been on earth, which is quite different from Jewish beliefs.

From a historic perspective, all Christians churches (including Amish) had their earliest origin in Judaism, from which there developed Catholicism, which in turn later gave rise to Protestantism and the other Christian denominations. The Amish separated itself from the Mennonite (which separated itself from the Vatican regarding infant baptism). Mennonite was born following Martin Luther's reformation movement. Luther was a German Catholic priest who posted the 95 theses of Convention at his church's door in Germany in 1517, "protesting" against the Vatican.

Answer 2:
The Amish are descendants of a group of 17th-century Anabaptists. Their name derives from their leader, Jacob Amman, who lived in Switzerland. From their study of the Bible back then, these God-fearing people recognized that infant baptism and military service were wrong. Because of their stand, the government persecuted them. A few even paid for their religious conviction with their lives. Persecution continued to increase, and a number of them were forced to flee to other parts of Switzerland and to France. By the middle of the 19th century, thousands had fled to the United States. With them, they brought their culture and the Swiss German dialect.
