Yes... It begins in the New Testament so Jewish people would reject it. It is also called the COMFORTER... John tells us this ::: 16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; 17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. 18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
Judaism reject much of Gods word, basically calling Him a liar. Christ speaks of the Holy Spirit often but Jews reject Jesus as Christ. Then as now they rejected pretty much anything Christ said. Since Christ was very critical of Jewish law and prractice so they rejected him. He also didnt fit their preconcieved notion of what the Messiah should be. We know Christs words came directly from God since he essentially is God or part of God but since most (not all) Jews reject Christ they also reject the Holy Spirit
Catholicism is an OFF shoot of Judaism. Jesus was the first jew to make All catholic. they believe in ONE god( El mighty one) The old testaments says NOT to worship false idols /prophets. The savior has not yet come. Jesus was considered a heretic(cult) by Caiaphas. As he was not a Rabi or allowed to teach/interpret the torah Catholics are told to believe in father son holy spirit( they claim as one?) and their churches are FULL of idols statues gold trinkets.
The Holy Spirit was not invented for Christianity. It was a teaching of the apostles and Jesus himself. Since many Jews don't believe Jesus is Gods son or that he rose from the dead they deny that the Holy Spirit exists too.
The Holy Spirit is the love between the Father and the Son. Therefore it is not in Jewish tradition. It came about in the Christian belief when God sent the Holy Spirit onto Jesus's disciples during Pentecost.
In Judaism, God is One, the idea of God as a duality or trinity among may be considered shituf (or "not purely monotheistic"). The term Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) is found frequently in Talmudic and Midrashic literature. In many cases it signifies prophetic inspiration, while in others it is used as a hypostatization or a metonym for God. The rabbinical understanding of the "Holy Spirit" has a certain degree of personification, but it remains, "a quality belonging to God, one of his attributes". In other words, it is just another word for God's nature.
In Rabbinic Judaism, the references to The Spirit of God, the Holy Spirit of YHWH, abound, however apart from Kabbalistic mysticism it has rejected any idea of The Eternal God as being either dualistic, tri-personal, or philosophically complex. Here is the list of verses where ruach (spirit) is used: Gen 1:2, 1 Sam 16:13, Psalm 51:11; 143:10, Isaiah 44:3; 63:10-11, Joel 2:28. The concept of Shekinah ("presence") is also associated with Holy Spirit in Jewish tradition, such as in Yiddish song: Vel ich, sh'chine tsu dir kummen "Will I, Shekinah, to you come."
They do! They recognize him as the power from God to do miracles, to teach, and guide. But the concept of "The Father, The Son and the Holy Spirit" is a Pauline invention. God is the only being to whom we should offer praise. In Judaism, the Shema is translated as "The Lord is our God, The Lord alone," meaning that no other is our God, and we should not pray to any other. In short, they (and so do muslims) believe that the spirit of God has the power and authority to speak on God's behalf yet is NEVER SEEN NEAR THE THRONE OF THE ALMIGHTY!
