Let's keep in mind that all of the believers were initially Jews. For about the first 20 years after the crucifixion. So it's not that all of the Jews rejected Him. Of those that did accept Him, most were killed around 70ad and more during the Bar Kochba revolt. All that was left after that were the Jews that make up modern day Judaism and the gentiles, led by a Roman sun worshiper, who through out most of the Bible and enforced his own brand of sun/biblical religion through various edicts who's effects are still with us today.
You can't blame the Jews today for not believing in a Jesus Messiah that did away with the very commandments He already told the Jews were forever. Who did away with the Sabbath and told them they could eat whatever they wanted. There is no reason for them to believe in this version of their Messiah.
The question is, since Messiah is the very Word made flesh, and they still believe in keeping this Word, even though they don't believe He came in the flesh yet, are they doomed?
Personally, I don't really think they are any worse off than those who claim to believe in Him, yet reject His commandments.
Yeshayahu 9:7 Of the increase of His rule and peace there is no end, upon the throne of David and over His reign, to establish it and sustain it with justice and with righteousness from now on, even forever. The ardour of יהוה of hosts does this.
