It is true to say that those who do not believe Moses and the prophets would also reject the Messiah if he appeared in person today with the message of the Bible prophets. The message of all the Bible prophets in a nutshell is: Fear God and keep His commandments, or suffer the consequences. That message has not changed and those who reject it are simply deceiving themselves.
|Luke 16:||31: “And he (Jesus) said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.”|
