Yet again the list maker taps Y'shayahu / Isaiah 42 claiming it is prophetic of Jesus. This is #6 of 8 claims tied to Y'shayahu / Isaiah 42.
Yet again the list maker counts being compassionate as a prophecy Jesus fulfilled -- but this is not the first time.
146. Psalms 112:4...His character-Compassionate, Gracious, et al... Matthew 9;36
200. Isaiah 40:11...A shepherd-compassionate life-giver...John 10:10-18
It seems the list maker has to do something to reach the magic number of 365 and that means repetition, repetition, repetition!
Messianic prophecies are very specific to the messiah. They are about things that will happen in his lifetime (no second chances or second comings). While the messiah does not have to personally "do" any of the messianic prophecies he must be alive when the happen -- and none of them are as generic as "being compassionate." Here is a short list and note that Jesus accomplished not one of them:
If an individual fails to fulfill even one of these conditions, then he cannot be "The Messiah."
Jesus failed to fulfill every single one of them.
The list maker's claim that the servant in Y'shayahu / Isaiah 42:1-4 is Jesus is easily disproved. The prophet Isaiah has clearly identified the servant as the Jewish people. It is the Jewish nation. "Behold My servant, I will support him, My chosen one, whom My soul desires; I have placed My spirit upon him, he shall promulgate justice to the nations. He shall neither cry nor shall he raise [his voice]; and he shall not make his voice heard outside. A breaking reed he shall not break; and a flickering flaxen wick he shall not quench; with truth shall he execute justice. Neither shall he weaken nor shall he be broken, until he establishes justice in the land, and for his instruction, islands shall long." Y'shayahu / Isaiah 42:1-4.
The servant, the chosen one, is the Jewish nation. For missionaries who want to claim line 1 is about Jesus ask them to explain how Jesus was blind and deaf to G-d (especially if they think Jesus was G-d). "Who is blind but My servant, and deaf as My messenger whom I will send? He who was blind is as the one who received his payment, and he who was blind is as the servant of the L-rd." (verse 19).
If Jesus was the servant of Y'shayahu / Isaiah 42 was he blind to G-d? Was he deaf to G-d?
The list maker also references verse 6. Start with the previous line (5). Y'shayahu / Isaiah 42:5 - 6 "So said G-d the L-rd, the Creator of the heavens and the One Who stretched them out, Who spread out the earth and what springs forth from it, Who gave a soul to the people upon it and a spirit to those who walk thereon. I am the L-rd; I called you with righteousness and I will strengthen your hand; and I formed you, and I made you a covenant for the people, for a light to nations."
Again, when read in context it is clear that Isaiah (speaking for G-d) is talking about G-d and His relationship with the Jewish nation who is far too often blind and deaf to their role as a nation of priests to the rest of the world -- still (G-d says) He will strengthen the Jewish people and He will strengthen us so that when the messianic age arrives we will be redeemed.
Read from chapter 40 - 42 and it is clear that Isaiah is speaking of the Jewish people/nation. The prophet identifies that people/nation as Jacob/Israel time and time again. Consider Y'shayahu / Isaiah 42:22: "וְהוּא עַם בָּזוּז וְשָׁסוּי" “And it is a robbed and pillaged people.” The people refers to the people of Israel as identified in verse 24: “Who subjected Jacob to plunder and Israel to spoilers? Was it not the L-rd?”
