Throughout history the Jews have been the leaders in the attack on Christianity and the Christian Church.
The words of Athanasius (ca AD 350 when the canonization of the New Testament was taking place in Rome):
"For now He has come into our realm, and taken up His abode in one Body among his peers, henceforth the whole conspiracy of the enemy against mankind is checked, and the corruption of death which before was prevailing against them is done. For the race of men had gone to ruin, had not the Lord and Saviour of all, the Son of God, come among us to meet the end of death."- Athanasius' "On the Incarnation of the Word", Section 9, Verse 4; cf. 1 Corinthians 15: 21-26.
"Perhaps regard to thr other (prophecies) they (the Jews) may be able to even find excuses and to put off what is written to a future time. But what can they say to this, or can they face it at all? Where not only is the Christ referred to, but He that is to be anointed is declared to be not man simply, but Holy of Holies and Jerusalem is to stand until His coming, and thenceforth, prophet and vision cease in Israel."- Athanasius' "On the Incarnation of the Word", Section 39, Verse 3; cf. Daniel 9:44ff.
"For when He that was signified was come, what need was there any longer of any to signify Him? When the Truth was there, what need of any more of the shadow? For this was the reason of their prophecying at all- namely till the True Righteousness should come, and He that was to ransom the sins of all. And this is why Jerusalem stood till then- namely that there they might be exercised in the types as a preparation for the reality. ...The Saviour also Himself cried aloud and said: 'The Law and the Prophets prophesied until John.' ...If then there are amongst the Jews king or prophet or vision, they do well to deny the Christ that is come. But if there is neither king nor vision, but from that time forth all prophecy is sealed and the city and temple taken, why are they so irreligious and so perverse as to see what has happened, and yet to deny Christ Who has brought it all to pass? ...What then has not come to pass that the Christ must do? What is left unfulfilled, that the Jews should disbelieve with impunity?"- Athanasius' "On the Incarnation of the Word", Section 40, Verses 1-8.
Johann Andreas Eisenmenger, author of 'The Traditions of the Jews', was a Jew turned Christian who died in 1704, a couple of years after approximately two thousand copies of his book were destroyed by the Jews who did not want his expository book on them published. Eisenmenger refused a huge bribe and had his book published. The Jews in turn confiscated the books and had them destroyed. It is said that Eisenmenger died of a broken heart because of what he went through with his book. But I doubt that. Knowing how the Jews throughout history have dealt with their adversaries, they probably had him killed for exposing them for what they truly believe.
This is an excerpt from his book which exposed the un-Biblical beliefs and traditions of the Jews (at that time, 1704) concerning the Messiah and the time of his appearing:
"The ancient Jews, before the Birth of Christ, were not far from the Mark, since there was an Opinion among them, that the World was to continue Six Thousand Years; which Space of Time they divided thus: For the First 2000 years, said they, the World was without Law. For the succeeding Two Thousand, the World was to be under the Law. The remaining Two Thousand they assign'd to the reign of the Messiah. They therefore expected his Coming upon the Completion of Four Thousand Years from Creation: And they err'd not far from the Truth: For, according to the Common Reckoning of Christians, Christ, the true messiah, was born in the Year of the World 3963; or, according to the Jewish Computation, in the Year 3761; their account differing from ours Two Hundred and Two Years. But because he came neither like a David nor a Solomon; neither like a mighty Monarch, nor an illustrious Prince; because he neither deliver'd them from the Tyranny of an Alien Herod and the Roman Yoke, nor bruis'd their enemies to Pieces with a Scepter of Iron, but open'd his Empire with the Spiritual Scepter of his Word, they would not receive him for the true Messiah.... Even at this present Time [ca 1704] there is a Remnant according to the Election of Grace. But because all the Jewish Regal Power, together with the true Dignity and Honour of the Priesthood, was abolish'd; and because the City of Jerusalem was destroy'd, and the Temple burnt, they believ'd the Times of the Messiah were elaps'd. And therefore, in the Fifty Second Year from the Destruction of the Temple [AD122], a certain haughty arrogant Jew obtruded himself upon his Countrymen for the True Messiah, challenging to himself that the Prophecy of Balaam, 'There shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Scepter shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the Princes of Moab, and destroy all the Chidren of Seth. And Edom shall be his possession; (S)eir also shall be a possession for his Enemies (These Things were then understood of the infant State of Christiandom; and even to this Day [ca 1704] they [the Jews] look for the Coming of a Messiah to accomplish them) and Israel shall do valiantly.' The Tidings of the Pretensions of this Jew were most welcome to his Nation, as they were given to understand, that they were to conquer and bear rule over the Romans, who had so lately destroyed the City and the Temple. And that Imposter, from the Terms of the Prophecy, assum'd the Title of Bar cochabh; that is, The Rising Star. He was soon join'd and supported by that most learned Rabbi Akiva, who had Twenty Four Thousand Disciples, ando publickaly proclaimed him in these Words, "Behold the very King Messiah." By this Means the Imposter, who fix'd his regal Residence at Bithera, drew after him a mighty Number of People. But, soon after, he was block'd up there by the Emperour Adrian; who, after a Siege of Four Years and a Half, took the City by Storm, and with it this Star, this Messiah, whom he put to Death; at the same Time miserably slaying Four Millions of Jews. Those that escaped this terrible Blow, finding they had been misled by this Ignis Fatuus of a Messiah, call'd him from that Time, as do their Posterity to this Day, Bar calabh, or Cosiba; that is, the false and lying Star or Messiah. Many others likewise, since the Dispersion, have, at different Times, set up for the Messiah; a Presumption which without Doubt, had its Birth from a Conviction, that the Time of the Messiah was elapsed.
"... that the Messiah was to come at the End of Four Thousand Years; adding,*Sanhedrin, Cap. II. p 27.) That the Messiah is not yet come; and that the Time is protracted on Account of their Sins. And being likewise, at Length, weary and asham'd of their continuous Mistakes, since the Completion of the Four Thousand Years, in calculating or cojecturing the Time of his Coming, they have endeavour'd to put an End to all Enquiries about it, by thundering out dire Execrations against Those who shall engage in them: One which runs thus: May their Bodies, or Spirits (as it may be read) burst, who compute the Times; that is to say, the Time of the Coming of the Messiah. Nevertheless, Many among them, despising these noisy empty Thunders, and honestly weighing the Predictions of the Prophets, and fairly giving Way to the Convictions of their Consciences, have acklnowledg'd, that that Time for the Coming of the Messiah is elapsed, and have left it under their Hands, That, in Truth, the Messiah hath already been born into the World; but that, on Account of their Sins and impenient Lives, he hath not been yet reveal'd to them. And This is believ'd by the Majority even at this Day [ca 1704]. Hence it is, that Rabbi Sol. Jarchi writes, "Our Ancestors judg'd, that the Messuah was born the Day that Jerusalem was left made desolate. But where he lies conceal'd all this Time, is a Matter upon which they are by no Means agreed..." **

The Messiah of AD122 was welcomed by the Jews because he promised revenge on Rome for what they did in AD70- they destroyed Jerusalem and the temple and wiped Israel off the map.
"Christiandom" as Eisenmenger reveals, has been highly influenced by the Jews who are antichristian. The Jews traditions and superstitions have infiltrated into the church. They managed to infiltrate their misinterpretations and misunderstandings into the CREEDS of the Church.
The similarity between the Jews' waiting for their Messiah and "Christiandom"'s waiting for the Second Coming are evident.
Yet Christians continue to be fooled by the "Jews in sheeps' clothing" misinterpretations and lies.
Those Christians in Rome were removed ~280 years from the events of AD70 and had little understanding of Scripture. The Jews took advantage of that and fooled those post-AD70 Christians into believing their "traditions of men" that Jesus Himself warned about and condemned.
To the Deceived:
2 John 1:9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.
10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:
11 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.
To the Deceivers:
Revelation 21:7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and ALL LIARS [emphasis mine], shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
Preterism, NOT Futurism, IS TRUE CHRISTIANITY.
