I never said that a prophet's role was to predict the future.
I said that what they wrote was ascribed to God, Jesus said He would fulfill it.
He never said it was a prediction about Himself, but that it was written of Him.
By fulfilling that which was written which no other man could possibly do testifies to His uniqueness.

Still waiting for you to tie any of this to reality. Showing how a story can be interpreted to be consistent, even if what you were spewing did that, doesn't mean any of it is real.

I'm not bucky, but indeed they did. I was brought up with that bullshit which my jewish grandfather didn't counter, since he was more interested in roast pork than religion. The only jewish thing I got from him were a few jiddish words and matzo at easter.

Sorry. I'm on my cell. Details are eluding me.

Bucky, you may have answered this previously, but at where did Christians get this idea of Jewish prophets predicting the future? Did they take our ideas of the messiah to mean all prophecy was supposed to be about the future?

It became popular during the late Apocalyptic period.

Good night my friends.

"Written of him" is the same fallacy. That's NOT what a prophet did in Hebrew society. Just as many things did not come to pass, as did, anyway. The role of a prophet was to advise the people of their own day ... the ONLY prediction they did was by way of advice, as in "brush your teeth or you will get cavities".

You hecrow, have NO EDUCATION on the ancient near East, and it's cultures and religions. It is NOT what prophets did. Ever. They were not "writing of him" and NO SCHOLAR on Earth buys this garbage.

"Fulfilled prophecy" is not a Biblical notion. You made it up, as you never studied the Bible under a competent teacher. You're a typical internet amateur fake preacher.

Horseshit. Science is a search for facts. Religion is a control mechanism to keep the dolts in line.

Atheism is NOT a Religion. It's A Personal Relationship With Reality!

Oh, man. Just read this thread. He thinks Adam and Eve were real people! Laugh out load

"Scientific", indeed.

There's just no reaching some people.
