The Jews rejected Jesus because they believed that he was not the Messiah that they were expecting.
The Messiah was believed to be a political and military leader who would free the Jews from Roman rule and restore the Kingdom of Israel. Jesus, on the other hand, preached a message of love and nonviolence, and did not fulfill this expectation. The Jewish Messiah is supposed to bring peace and harmony to the world, which Jesus Christ, as you may have noticed, just didn't do.
So, from the Jewish point of view, Jesus Christ is just another fake Messiah, no matter how influential he became on people's hearts. The real Saviour the Jews are still waiting for will put an end to all the suffering in the world, he also will raise the dead from their graves and stop the wars forever. Obviously Jesus did nothing of this. Sorry man, nice try.
Some Jews rejected Jesus because they did not believe that he was the Son of God or the savior of humanity. They may have seen him as just another teacher or prophet, rather than the divine figure that Christians believe him to be. Others rejected Jesus because they opposed his message and the changes that he was bringing about. Jesus challenged traditional Jewish beliefs and practices, and his teachings were seen as threatening by some.
