Jesus did none of these things. That is why a so-called second coming is expected and needed.
Here is my reply line by line…
1. There was already a Sanhedrin when Jesus lived.
2. He was never a king and no other nation looked to him when he lived.
3. There is still idolatry throughout the world.
4. Christians say Jesus was descended from King David but Judaism goes through the father when it comes to tribe… But Jesus’ father was G-d! (chas v’shalom!) Even if one were to say that Joseph was a descendant of David it wouldn’t matter because Joseph wasn’t his father! If you argue that Mary was from David… sorry, that’s a cheat, only the religion goes through the mother, not ancestry. So if Jesus was the son of G-d then he wasn’t the Messiah. if he was the Messiah then he can’t be the son of G-d. Whoops.
5. He had no fear of G-d. In fact, he blatantly went against Torah. Anyhow, how are we supposed to interpret this? He feared himself? It makes no sense.
6. Evil and tyranny existed and thrived during the life of Jesus and continues to thrive. Thus, no Messiah yet.
7. Knowledge of G-d indeed filled part of the world (just not when he lived) but it wasn’t monotheism. It was some strange polytheism made up of a Trinity. That is idol worship.
8. His only followers when he lived were Jews. No gentiles until good ol’ Paul came on the scene and “abrogated” the unchanging Word of G-d to make Christianity tasty for the Goyim.
9. Last I checked, Jesus didn’t return any Jews to Israel. Jews remained in Greece, Rome, Babylonia and elsewhere until today.
10. People still die.
11. There is still hunger, illness and suffering throughout the world.
12. While I’m sure Lazarus’ family was happy, there was no mass resurrection of the dead.
13. I think it’s safe to say that Jews did not have gladness or joy in the past 2000 years. Mostly due to the followers of Jesus, thank you.
14. No peace. Jesus admitted he came “to send the sword,” remember?
15. “Nations will recognize the wrongs they did to Israel.” Um, i think we can safely say… uh, no.
16. The “peoples of the world” have pretty much wanted to kill us for the past two thousand years. It’s hard to give spiritual advice when people are killing you.
17. No cities were rebuilt. In fact, our Temple was destroyed thirty odd years after he died.
18. Still war and weapons of war.
20. “He will give you all the worthy desires of your heart.” Unless our desire was genocide, he didn’t fulfill this.
21. He never made any land bloom or fruitful. In fact, Israel became a barren desert for two thousand years.
Hope that gives you a small taste of the Jewish view of Jesus and the eventual True Messiah.
