One of the central themes of biblical prophecy is the promise of a future age of perfection characterized by universal peace and recognition of God.(Isaiah 2:1-4, -18, -18; Zephaniah 3:9; Hosea -22; Amos -15; Micah 4:1-4; Zechariah , 14:9; Jeremiah -34) Specifically, the Bible says he will: If an individual fails to fulfill even one of these conditions, then he cannot be the Messiah.Christians counter that Jesus will fulfill these in the Second Coming.Jewish sources show that the Messiah will fulfill the prophecies outright; in the Bible no concept of a second coming exists.During the time of Ezra, when the majority of Jews remained in Babylon, prophecy ended upon the death of the last prophets – Haggai, Zechariah and Malachi.Jesus appeared on the scene approximately 350 years after prophecy had ended, and thus could not be a prophet.All over his walls were pictures of the how we were not allowed to study Christianity in our Bar Mitzvah class. You see children, Christianity was made up by a manic-depressant by the name of Saul of Tarsus who wanted to blame the crucifixion of a criminal named Jesus Christ on the Jewish people.
We entered into an old, musty smelling synagogue which had the Jewish Star of David everywhere.The Messiah will become the greatest prophet in history, second only to Moses.(Targum – Isaiah 11:2; Maimonides – Teshuva 9:2) Prophecy can only exist in Israel when the land is inhabited by a majority of world Jewry, a situation which has not existed since 300 BCE.And what I liked most of all about Him was when He said to the religious leaders, “The harlots and tax collectors go into the kingdom of heaven before you.” I could almost see Him saying this to Mrs Schecter who called Him a “criminal.” I simply found myself falling in love with Jesus Christ!I devoured the entire New Testament from cover to cover and could not put it down.
