Proof of God, 300 Prophecies that Jesus Fulfilled

Alright, briefly adding more on the subject of Jesus and Torah prophecy. I’d love to write something original today but people have had questions both in person and online, my phone’s been in use giving pastoral care for an atheist friend throughout the week, so it’s been a busy and fruitful period. Thank God for it in spite of my failures. Let’s do some more recapping on the subject of prophecy and probability. .

One thought on “Proof of God, 300 Prophecies that Jesus Fulfilled

  1. Interesting point about the supposed rabbinic cursings on people who make an effort to calculate the coming of the Lord and/or messiah. . .

    Quote 1: “A Sage said: “May the curse of heaven fall upon those who calculate the date of the advent of the Messiah, and thus create political and social unrest among the people.” Sanhedrin, 97b.

    Quote 2: “What is meant by ‘but at the end it shall speak [we-yafeah] and not lie?’ — R. Samuel b. Nahmani said in the name of R. Jonathan: Blasted be18 the bones of those who calculate the end.19 For they would say, since the predetermined time has arrived, and yet he has not come, he will never come. But [even so], wait for him, as it is written, Though he tarry, wait for him. Should you say, We look forward [to his coming] but He does not: therefore Scripture saith, And therefore will the Lord wait, that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you.20 But since we look forward to it, and He does likewise, what delays [his coming]? — The Attribute of Justice delays it.21 But since the Attribute of Justice delays it, why do we await it? — To be rewarded [for hoping], as it is written, blessed are all they that wait for him.”

    Quote 3: “Rabbis after the time of Christ have pronounced a curse on anyone who would attempt to calculate the dates of this chapter. – Talmud Sanhedrin 97b, Soncino ed., p. 659.”

    Quote 4: “Furthermore, this passage deals primarily with Jesus — not with some “future Fuehrer,” to use Hal Lindsey’s term for the Antichrist. In fact, the prophecy points so unmistakably to the time of the MESSIAH’S COMING, and so directly foretold HIS DEATH, that in later centuries Jewish rabbis who did not accept Jesus DISCOURAGED its study and finally pronounced a CURSE on all who attempt to compute the time elements!”

    Quote 5: “A most amazing thing occurs in the ninth chapter of Daniel: we’re told when Messiah would come. But instead of explaining it to us, our Rabbis curse anyone wanting to find it out: ‘Rabbi Samuel b. Nachmani said in the name (of) Rabbi Jonathan: ‘Blasted be the bones of those who calculate the end.’ (1) Some of our Rabbis, in a further attempt to keep us from Daniel, even state that Daniel was wrong. Alfred Edersheim, a Talmudic scholar who would come to know Messiah said, ‘later Rabbinism, which, naturally enough, could not find its way through the Messianic prophecies of the book, declared that even Daniel was mistaken”

    Quote 6: “Rab said: All the predestined dates [for redemption] have passed, and the matter [now] depends only on repentance and good deeds.”
