This is what the Lord says to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I take hold of to subdue nations before him and to strip kings of their armor, to open doors before him so that gates will not be shut[. First, Isaiah's reference to gates, although the actual means Cyrus used to gain entry to the city of Babylon, was nonetheless meant figuratively. This is evidenced by noting the continued use of obviously figurative language in the next verse NIV :. I will go before you and will level the mountains; I will break down gates of bronze and cut through bars of iron. Second, in reality, this section of Isaiah was likely written approximately BCE.

Even if the "prediction" was not made after the event , its occurrence was hardly impossible to foresee and the name of Cyrus would have been well known. Imagine someone in the future who digs up a document from late which "prophesies" the Iraq War and the defeat and death of Saddam Hussein - how impressed should our future reader be of the author's oracular powers? Christian apologist John Oakes flatly rejects this prophecy as a failure: [7]. This section is for alleged prophecies alluded to that were never made or that were not intended to be prophetic. Matthew alleges that Jesus' birth fulfilled a prophecy by being born to a virgin.

This is 1 very, very unlikely and 2 not actually prophesied. Matthew alleges that Jesus' having been born in Bethlehem fulfills a prophecy. When he had called together all the people's chief priests and teachers of the law, he asked them where the Christ was to be born. While the quote from the prophet, Micah, appears to predict Jesus will come from the city of Bethlehem, he was not quoted precisely.

But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah , out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times. Several translations make it clear that Micah was referring to a clan named Bethlehem Ephrathah, not a city. But you Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are little among the thousands of Judah , yet out of you shall come forth to Me the One to be Ruler in Israel, Whose goings forth are from of old, from everlasting. This translation is particularly troubling for Matthew.

There are not thousands of towns in Israel, much less the subsection of Judah, today. It makes more sense that thousands refers to the people of Judah, rather than the towns of Judah. There is also evidence that Bethlehem Ephrathah refers to the descendants of Ephratah. The Septuagint which Matthew usually uses, but apparently did not here is even more explicit. And thou, Bethlehem, house of Ephrathah, art few in number to be reckoned among the thousands of Judah: yet out of thee shall one come forth to me, to be a ruler of Israel.

The word house was often used in Hebrew to signify a family or a clan as in "the house of Judah" or "the house of David. Thus, the "Bethlehem" spoken of in Micah was the "Bethlehem [of the house of] Ephratah" spoken of in Chronicles above. The Micah quote has also been taken out of context, originally showing no indication of being a messianic prophecy, instead referring to a military leader.

And they [the person from Bethlehem Ephrathah] shall waste the land of Assyria with the sword, and the land of Nimrod in the entrances thereof: thus shall he deliver us from the Assyrian, when he cometh into our land, and when he treadeth within our borders. Micah stated this in the context of the "many nations [that] have gathered against you [Judah]" , especially the Assyrians. It makes sense to assume that Micah, rather than predicting a distant Messiah, was promoting a leader to help Judah against the contemporary Assyrian threat. There is serious doubt that Micah intended his statement to be a Messianic prophecy.

Finally, there is no evidence outside of Matthew and Luke that Jesus was actually born in Bethlehem. To trust Matthew and Luke on Jesus' prophetic fulfillment is circular, since the point of prophecy is to prove that the Bible is trustworthy.

There are no historical documents supporting a Jesus born in Bethlehem. Luke has Joseph and Mary in Bethlehem from Nazareth for the dubious reason of partaking in a census in 6 CE, while Matthew has them starting in Bethlehem and escaping to Nazareth by way of Egypt at least ten years earlier. In the Bible, Jesus is born in Bethlehem but grows up in Nazareth. Matthew credits the Nazareth upbringing as a fullfilment of prophecy:.

Why Is Jewishness Matrilineal?

Unlike most of the other "prophecies" in this category, we can't even tell which Old Testament passage, if any, Matthew is twisting to fit the story; no OT prophecy seems relevant. It's almost as if he's just flat-out declaring that this was prophecied and hoping no one calls his bluff. Of course, even this one isn't too big a stone for apologists to swallow. As web page dedicated to this particular problem puts it: "First, it is necessary to point out that a genuine textual problem only exists if one has exhausted every possibility of interpretation, and there simply is no reasonable explanation that resolves the difficulty.

The most popular Christian explanation is that "Nazarene" is a figurative expression for anyone who is despised or rejected, as Jesus is at various points in the New Testament and the Messiah at various points in the old. Not only is that a heck of a cop-out, but if it's Matthew's intention, then it makes little sense for him to say that Jesus moving to a literal Nazareth is a fulfillment of the "figurative Nazarene" prophecy.

Of course, in that instance the case for a "fulfilled prophecy" is left empty-handed and it's a catch-all excuse for similar failures. And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son.

Note that the quote as it appears in Matthew is incomplete. The first part, the reference to Israel, is missing. In fact, the passage in Hosea is not a prophecy of Jesus leaving Egypt but rather a reference to the exodus of the Israelites.

Biblical Roots of Jewish Matrilineal Descent

In defense of the claim that Matthew gave an incomplete quote to hide the fact that Hosea was not intended as a prophecy, biblical inerrancy site AboutBibleProphecy. It should also be noted that among the gospel accounts the journey of Jesus to Egypt is unique in Matthew.

As they called them, so they went from them: they sacrificed unto Baalim, and burned incense to graven images. I taught Ephraim also to go, taking them by their arms; but they knew not that I healed them. I drew them with cords of a man, with bands of love: and I was to them as they that take off the yoke on their jaws, and I laid meat unto them. He shall not return into the land of Egypt, and the Assyrian shall be his king, because they refused to return.

And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced , and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn. The verse in John is an inaccurate quote, leaving out the word "me.

Jesus cannot be both and fulfill the prophecy.

Furthermore, the context of Zechariah 12 is of an invading army, not a Messianic prophecy of Jesus. Although many Christian scholars maintain the author had foreshadowed Jesus' crucifixion, other especially Jewish scholars maintain that he had meant instead to refer to the mistreatment of the nation of Israel. For two thousand three hundred evenings and mornings; then the sanctuary shall be restored to its rightful state. William Miller, a Baptist preacher, predicted and preached the imminent return of Jesus Christ to the earth.

He first assumed that the cleansing of the sanctuary represented purification of the Earth by fire at Christ's Second Coming.

Is God allowed to update the Torah?

Then, using an interpretive principle known as the "day-year principle", Miller, along with others, interpreted a prophetic day to read not as a hour period, but rather as a calendar year. Miller stated: "My principles in brief, are, that Jesus Christ will come again to this earth, cleanse, purify, and take possession of the same, with all the saints, sometime between March 21, and March 21, Here he [Micah] successfully predicted the rededication of the Temple, but got the date wrong. In chapter 8, our author predicted that the Temple would miss 2, evening and morning continual burnt offerings between its desecration and its rededication Daniel This amounts to 1, days , or three years plus 55 days.

In the Julian calendar, the rededication should have taken place on 30 January BC, almost two months too late to fit actual history. A prophecy should be obvious as predicting an event before the occurrence of the event. If the prophecy is not obvious as having predicted the event even after the occurrence of the event, then it suffers from vagueness. The vision is described as follows:.


You looked, O king, and there before you stood a large statue—an enormous, dazzling statue, awesome in appearance. The head of the statue was made of pure gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze, its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of baked clay. Daniel explains that the gold head of the statue apparently represents the Babylonian Empire and the remaining parts represent kingdoms that would follow.
