This question is very controversial. As a result, the answers have been split between those who believe that Jesus differed from Judaism and discuss those differences and those who believe that Jesus did not differ from Jewish teachings and their reasons:
Jesus Differed From Judaism
Answer 1: He Claimed He Was God
Jesus did start by teaching basic Torah (holy Jewish text). For example, 'love thy neighbour' can be found in the Torah thousands of years before Jesus was even born.
At that time there were many small sects on the fringes of Judaism. They were mostly led by charismatic young preachers, many of whom claimed to be the 'messiah'. Assuming that Jesus existed, he was undoubtedly one of these preachers.
But Jesus then did start to teach and claim things that totally violated Judaism. Apparently he claimed to be 'God', and this is blasphemy for Jews. No human being is ever divine, and God never takes human form, in Jewish belief.
So Jesus effectively left Judaism. This didn't matter because he was never a central personality at that time; indeed, the majority of Jews didn't even know who he was. It was long after the Romans crucified him that Jesus became deified and declared by Christianity as being 'god incarnate'.
The Romans were crucifying thousands of innocent Jews at that time. They charged Jesus with 'sedition'.
Answer 2: He Added Gnosticism
One radical move Jesus made was the introduction of Egyptian gnostic teachings in his sermons to the Jewish people.
Answer 3: Explicit Examples of Jesus' Torah-Level Violations
There are several Torah-Level Commandments that Jesus actively violated (all quotes from the NIV). This list is not exhaustive:
Jesus Did Not Differ From Judaism
Answer 1: Jesus was a Member of Gnostic Judaism
Bible scholars believe that "John the Baptist" and "Jesus" as they are called by orthodox Christians were members of a gnostic Jewish sect that had been around for quite a while. In that sense, the teachings of Jesus were entirely consistent with the kind of Judaism he was raised with.
There are gnostic sects in all religious paths. Gnosticism merely means knowing; and gnostics believe that "the redeemer who died" and other aspects of the mythical life of "Jesus" were overlaid to create a "Christianity" that would shore up a collapsing at God. Knowledge is innate, it must merely be recognized. Jesus' teachings are definitely gnostic in nature.
There is also historical evidence that the "blame it on us" passage that accuses the Jews of "murdering Jesus" was intentionally added to the gospels to foster anti-semitism and discredit the Jews.
Answer 2: Jesus Did Not Teach Anything Contrary To Judaism
Jesus DID NOT teach anything contrary to Judaism. One only has to be familiar with the Torah (first five books of the Tanach /Old Testament) to see that all that he ever taught was in total agreement with the Torah.
Answer 3: Jesus Is Within The Ambit of Judaism
It would take much time and space to derail all of the misrepresentations and misinformation related to the real mission of Jesus. Nonetheless, His teachings did not differ or stray from Judaism. To be sure, there were many "Judaisms" in the 1st century. Nonetheless, His doctrine seems to favor the Pharisaic school of thought. It takes much study to uncover all the falsehoods. However, if you're really seeking the truth, it will be revealed. Some good books to read on this subject include "Jesus the Pharisee" by Hyam Maccoby, and "The Misunderstood Jew" by Amy-Jill Levine.
Answer 4: He Was the Messiah As Foretold
There can be different interpretations ofconcerning this subject. Ultimately what it came down to is that Jesus said He was the Messiah and the Jews did not believe that the Messiah arrived yet. That angered some of Jews of the times, especially the Sadducees (the makers of Jewish law at that time). So basically the Romans crucified Him as the Jews insisted. And yes all of this was foretold in the book of Isaiah several hundred years before it actually happened. The rest is History.
Sikhism as a religion believes in multiple ways of salvation. Sikhism does not have monopoly over salvation, nor just by calling yourself Sikh you get salvation. Therefore, Jesus is seen as just one of the ways to attain salvation just as there is Islam, Buddhism, Jainism, Judaism, Hinduism, Taoism,.......................... Sikhs don't believe in Jesus the way Christians believe in Jesus.
The Jewish leaders did not like Jesus. He taught and preached the true word of God. Many of the people were beginning to believe in Him and turning away from the Jewish leaders teachings. So they crucified Jesus and thought they had got rid of the problem. They could now go on teaching in their perverted ways. But what happens? Here the apostles of Jesus start teaching the ways of Jesus and even healed a few persons. This upset the Jewish leaders. They thought they had got rid of the problem and now it was manifesting itself again. The leaders told the apostles to stop teaching in Jesus' name. This is all they could do because the true cause, "the way" was so popular killing the apostles would be a big mistake. The apostles did not stop preaching, and this is a good lesson to whether we should obey man or God, when it come to the important things of God.
