    Great Discussion!

    I have a request: PLEASE take the time to highlight when you come across one of the “48 ‘dead-on’ prophecies” referenced by Shali in the comments of last week’s show. http://therefinersfire.org/accurate_messiah_prophecies.htm

    The author of the website (Shali I think) states: “The following is a list of 48 dead-on prophecies fulfilled by Yeshua.” That statement strongly implies that the other 317 prophecies are inferior. Why would anyone want to identify the Messiah using inferior prophecies? Why not say: “All 365 are true, but these 48 are REALLY true!”

    So far only 8 of the 48 have been covered in the previous shows. If you have time perhaps do a quick recap to cover those 8 again.

    This way you can clear up two lists at the same time! 🙂

    Keep up the good work!

    I think it worth noting that many of the prophecies Jesus is to have fulfilled were private events, not even witnessed by the authors of the gospels. These items must be taken on faith. That being the case, they can hardly be used as proof that Jesus fulfilled a prophecy.

    For example, the assertion that Jesus was born in Bethlehem is unverifiable, and was in his day. He had no birth certificate. He was not surrounded by family and friends, except for his mother and Joseph. He was born in a stable behind an inn, and shortly moved to Egypt. He did not grow up in Bethlehem, and John’s Gospel tells us that people did not know he’d been born in Bethlehem. (One questions if being born in a place is enough to say you are from a place. I was born in Hawaii, because my father was in the army, but I am not Hawaiian.) The unsubstantiated claim that he was born in Bethlehem cannot be brought as proof that Jesus fulfilled a prophecy about being born in Bethlehem. Even if he were born there, virtually no one was privy to that information.

    Similarly, in this weeks prophecies, we have astrologers giving gifts to baby Jesus. This event had almost no witnesses. It was a private event. It cannot be brought as proof that Jesus fulfilled the prophecy. Anyone can claim that they fulfilled this privately. Maybe a few guys from Iraq just knocked on my door and presented me with gifts. By my saying it is so, does that mean I fulfilled the prophecy? Even the man who reported the event did not witness it.

    Also reported but not witnessed is the temptation of Jesus. This was as private event as they get. Jesus was by himself. Matthew did not see it, nor did anyone else. So, if Jesus were to claim, “Look I fulfilled the prophecy about being tempted,” one could say, “How very nice for you,” but he could not take it as proof of anything. The fact that somebody claims that a private event fulfilled prophecy is ludicrous.

    Imagine a man knocks on someone’s door, and he says, “I’m sorry, but I have just been granted the deed to your property and you must move out.” This would seem bizarre. And if he could present no papers, if he only asserted that he had them at home, would the resident be likely to move out? More likely, he would call the police to escort the lunatic from one’s property. A claim is not proof.

    One can claim all he want that Jesus fulfilled prophecies privately. But he cannot claim it to be proven. Nothing unverified is proven. That to which there are no or too few witnesses is not proven.

    Highly informative and entertaining discussion. Thank you, Jono and Rabbi Skobac for going through all these prophecies, and also thanks are due to Carmen Welker who created the list.

    When everyone works together like this, the rest of us are finding the truth.

    I think I see a pattern developing here: 1) A belief in Jesus i.e., prior knowledge. 2) Take scripture out of context. 3) Use non messianic verses. Am I missing any here?
