Jesus appeared on the scene approximately 350 years after prophecy had ended, and thus could not be a prophet.
Many prophetic passages speak of a descendant of King David who will rule Israel during the age of perfection.
(Exodus 29:7, 1-Kings , 2-Kings 9:3) What is the Messiah supposed to accomplish?
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.
All past Messianic claimants, including Jesus of Nazareth, Bar Cochba and Shabbtai Tzvi have been rejected.
Christians counter that Jesus will fulfill these in the Second Coming.
The Messiah will lead the Jewish people to full Torah observance.
According to the Christian claim that Jesus was the product of a virgin birth, he had no father – and thus could not have possibly fulfilled the messianic requirement of being descended on his father's side from King David.
(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.
Because no one has ever fulfilled the Bible's description of this future King, Jews still await the coming of the Messiah.
Isaiah 53 concludes that when the Jewish people are redeemed, the nations will recognize and accept responsibility for the inordinate suffering and death of the Jews.
Throughout history, thousands of religions have been started by individuals, attempting to convince people that he or she is God's true prophet.
