So you agree this is a prophecy....A prophecy....You know like before it happened...How can Jesus change course before anything has even happened??
There were 2 prophecies: One of Suffering and one of Glory knowing that fallen men could have gone either way.
I've read your exhausting amount of verses (now I know how it feels). But I have not seen the rejection you were suggesting...
If all these verses do not show you that people did no believe in him and rejected him, nothing will.
I can't find your post, but you suggested Jesus tried desperately hard to be accepted but was rejected, this is not true...nor do your quotes suggest this...
God had prepared people of Jesus' time to receive him and he tried his utmost best for them to believe in him even through miracles
God's will for the Kingdom of Heaven on earth was to prepare the chosen nation of Israel for 2000 years to follow and receive Jesus, then to take Christ to the entire world for salvation.
A. God chose the nation of Israel to believe and receive Christ.
"On the holy mount stands the city he founded; the Lord loves the gates of Zion more than all the dwelling places of Jacob. Glorious things are spoken of you, O city of God."
"O offspring of Abraham, his servant, sons of Jacob, his chosen ones!"
"For the Lord has chosen Zion; he has desired it for his habitation."
Psalms 135:4 "For the Lord has chosen Jacob for himself, Israel as his own possession."
"But you, Israel, my servant, Jacob, whom I have chosen, the offspring of Abraham, my friend; you whom I took from the ends of the earth, and called from its farthest corners, saying to you, 'You are my servant, I have chosen you and not cast you off'; fear not, for I am with you, be not dismayed, for I am you God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will help you, I I will uphold with my victorious right hand."
"They are Israelites, and to them belong the sonship, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the worship and the promises; to them belong the patriarchs, and of their race, according to the flesh, is the Christ. God who is over all be blessed for ever. Amen."
B. Israel longed for this salvation in receiving Jesus."
"Lift up your heads, O gates! And be lifted up, O ancient doors! that the King of glory may come in. Who is this King of Glory? The Lord of Hosts, he is the King of Glory!"
"Redeem Israel, O God, out of all his troubles."
"Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of thy name; deliver us, and forgive our sins, for thy name's sake!"
"Restore us, O God; let thy face shine, that we maybe saved!"
"Show us thy steadfast love, O Lord, and grant us thy salvation. Surely his salvation is at hand for those who fear him, that glory may dwell in our land."
"0 come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation."
"Let Israel be glad in his Maker, let the sons of Zion rejoice in their King!"
"o Israel, trust in the Lord! He is their help and their shield."
"Shout, and sing for joy, O inhabitant of Zion, for great in your midst is the Holy One of Israel."
"It will be said on that day, 'Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, that he might save us. This is the Lord; we have waited for him; let us be glad and rejoice in his salvation."
"Yea, our heart is glad in him, because we trust in his holy name. Let thy steadfast love, O Lord, be upon us, even as we hope in thee."
"So when they had come together, they asked him, 'Lord, will you at this time restore the Kingdom to Israel?"
C. God promised salvation through Christ to Israel
"The Lord redeems the life of his servants; none of those who take refuge in him will be condemned."
"I am the Lord your God, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt. Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it."
"For the Lord will not forsake his people; he will not abandon his heritage;"
"For the Lord will build up Zion, he will appear in his glory."
"The Lord has been mindful of us; he will bless us; he will bless the house of Israel..."
"And he will redeem Israel from all his iniquities."
"There I will make a horn to sprout for David; I have prepared a lamp for my anointed."
"Then the moon will be confounded, and the sun ashamed; for the Lord of hosts will reign of Mount Zion and in Jerusalem and before his elders he will manifest his glory."
"Therefore the Lord waits to be gracious to you; therefore he exalts himself to show mercy to you. For the Lord is a God of justice; blessed are all those who wait for him. Yea, O people in Zion who dwell at Jerusalem; you shall weep no more. He will surely be gracious to you at the sound of your cry; when he hears it, he will answer you. And though the Lord give you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, yet your Teacher will not hide himself anymore, but your eyes shall see your Teacher. And your ears shall hear a word behind you saying, 'This is the way, walk in it,' when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left."
"Fear not, you worm Jacob, you men of Israel! I will help you says the Lord; your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel."
"You shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I, the Lord, am your God and there is none else. And my people shall never again be put to shame."
"On that day the Lord their God will save them for they are the flock of his people; for like the jewels of a crown they shall shine on his land."
"They told him, 'In Bethlehem of Judea, for so it is written by the prophet: 'And you, o Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for from you shall come a ruler who will govern my people Israel."
"for mine eyes have seen thy salvation which thou hast prepared in the presence of all peoples, a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and for glory to thy people Israel."
"I myself (John the Baptist) did not know him; but for this I came baptizing with water, that he might be revealed to Israel."
"For I tell you that Christ became a servant to the circumcised to show God's truthfulness, in order to confirm the promises given to the patriarchs."
D. The nation of Israel was to give witness and salvation to the world through Christ.
"In days to come Jacob shall take root, Israel shall blossom and put forth shoots, and fill the whole world with fruit."
"Behold my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen in whom my soul delights; I have put my Spirit upon him, he will bring forth justice to the nations."
"You are my witnesses' says the Lord, 'and my servant whom I have chosen, that you may know and believe me and understand that I am He."
"And now the Lord says, who formed me from the womb to be his servant, to bring Jacob back to him, and that Israel might be gathered to him, for I am honored in the eyes of the Lord, and my God has become my strength--he says: 'It is too light a thing that you should be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob and to restore the preserved of Israel; I will give you as a light to the nations, that my salvation may reach to the end of the earth."
"Thus says the Lord of hosts: Peoples shall yet come, even the inhabitants of many cities; the inhabitants of one city shall go to another, saying, 'Let us go at once to entreat the favor of the Lord, and to seek the Lord of hosts; I am going.' Many peoples and strong nations shall come to seek the Lord of hosts in Jerusalem and to entreat the favor of the Lord. Thus says the Lord of hosts: In those days ten men from the nations of every tongue shall take hold of the robe of a Jew, saying, 'Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you."
"For I am not ashamed of the gospel: it is the power of God for salvation to every one who has faith, to the Jew first and also to the Greek."
"...to begin with, the Jews are entrusted with the oracles of God."
"(Jesus to a Samaritan woman) You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews."
E. Jesus focused on bringing he Israel nation to believe in him as the Christ.
"These twelve Jesus sent out, charging them, 'Go nowhere among the Gentiles, and enter no town of the Samaritans, but go rather to the lost sheep of the House of Israel."
"Jesus answered him, ' I have spoken openly to the world; I have always taught in synagogues and in the temple where all Jews come together; . ."
"But he (Jesus) did not answer her (a woman possessed) a word. And his disciples came and begged him, saying, "Send her away, for she is crying after us." He answered, 'I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.' But she came and knelt before him, saying, 'Lord, help me.' And he answered, 'It is not fair to take the children's bread and throw it to the dogs." (Also recorded in Mark 7:25-27)
"For the gifts and the call of God are irrevocable."Jesus focused on fulfilling the irrevocable call of Israel to God.
The will of God for salvation of the jews required belief, faith and obedience to Jesus
A.God wanted the Israelites to believe, and obey Jesus.
"Then they said to him, 'What must we do, to be doing the works of God?' Jesus answered the, 'This is the work of God, that you believe in him whom he has sent."
"If you believed Moses, you would believe me, for he wrote of me."

"And Jesus cried out and said, 'He who believes in me, believes not in me but in him who sent me. And he who sees me sees him who sent me. I have come as light into the world, that whoever believes in me may not remain in darkness.

"Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father in me; or else believe me for the sake of the works themselves. Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I go to the Father."
"He who has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me; and he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him."

"For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life."
B. Jesus showed by his actions that the will of God was for the Israelites to believe in him.
1. The people needed miracles and works to believe.
"Jesus therefore said to him, 'Unless you see signs and wonders you will not believe."
"So they said to him, 'Then what sign do you do, that we may see, and believe you? What work do you perform?"
"Yet many of the people believed in him; they said, 'When the Christ appears, will he do more signs than this man has done?"
2. Jesus did works and miracles so the Israelites could believe in him.
"Now Jesus did many other signs in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in his name."
"but if I do them, even though you do not believe me, believe the works, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me and I am in the Father."
"Men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a man attested to you by God with mighty works and wonders and signs which God did through him in your midst, as you yourselves know.."
"Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father in me; or else believe me for the sake of the works themselves."
