After all, the justification as to why Jesus had to come in the first place is that the Jews did not properly execute their function as the people of God. This right there is an attack to the jugular of Judaism. The image of Jesus as the loving peace maker does not take into account the fact, according to the New Testament, that he also insulted the leaders of Israel, called Jewish sages a "den of Satan", whipped the money changers, and did several other things that were hostile and disrespectful. Now a Christian would argue that all of those things were good and Jesus knew better than the people he attacked. But a Jew would disagree. So right from the start Christianity is on some level an attack on Judaism.
Still digesting. Seems to me you overlook some things. Thinking out loud, for a start: apart from who Jesus was and what He did and how and why, there might have been things going wrong in the synagogue, just like now we criticise the Pope, for example, or criticised the World Council of Churches for not speaking up against Russian communist atrocities in the 1970s, 1980s, or criticise imams for racist language in the mosques?
