Thats just the point of prophecy - that prophecy was made long before Jesus was born. Unless he was God, and knew everything - how would he have known to ride into Jerusalem on a donkey in order to fulfill a prophecy? This isn't like a 500 year old prophet walking up to some guy and saying - i predict you will ride into jerusalem on a donkey, some guy says - ok ill do that - i must be the Messiah! Only if Jesus was God and the true messiah could he have known that prophecy 500 years after the fact.

Oh man! I never thought of that! If Jesus knew something that was written in a book before he was born, he MUST be GOD!

or someone wrote the second book after reading those prophecies. Do they not know the new was born from the old?

'The Life of Brian' was based on the fact the Jews were expecting their Messiah at that time. That's fact

What prophecy?
It was forged after the forged "fact".


It's sad that people this stupid aren't culled at an early age. Nature used to take care of that.

If only the true messiah could have known that prophecy, how do you know it?

If the prophecy had been that somebody would enter a first century palestinian city on a hovercraft, then I'd sit up and take notice. How many forms of transport do you think there were ?

Was this the stolen donkey? From the story where he tells his pals to go grab one because a man of his stature (who doesn't own a donkey) should not have to make his appearance afoot?

The prophecy had been written. Jesus knew his scriptures and decided to "fulfil" it. He was playing to an audience of people who would also know their scriptures and get the point of what he was doing. The writing of the prophecy did not cause the action 500 years later. It's not hard to find other prophecies that never did get fulfilled and now never will be.

Or, maybe he read the book?
