The list maker ties six claimed prophecies about Jesus to Y'shayahu / Isaiah chapter 49.
#215 "A servant from the womb" is nearly identical to #214. Isaiah 49:1...Called from the womb-His humanity...Matthew 1:18.
Many of the "365" prophecies claimed for Jesus reference the same claim time and again -- as well as referencing the same passages for multiple claims. . . anything goes to reach the magic number of 365!
Chapters 40 - 66 of Sefer Y'shayahu (the book of Isaiah) are G-d speaking through the prophet to a despairing Jewish nation. The Jewish nation took G-d for granted, and only gave lip service to their observance of His mitzvot. Their hearts were not with Him (speaking of corporal Israel -- the Jewish nation as a whole, not individual Jews. There have always been righteous Jews -- including Isaiah himself).
Chapters 40 - 66 comfort the Jewish people, telling them that the exile from the land will not be eternal and that G-d has not (and never will) deserted them. Eventually the Jewish people will return to Israel (Judah) and the messiah will usher in an era of global knowledge of G-d among all the nations, as well as worldwide peace. The Temple will be rebuilt and all will be well -- even the righteous dead will live again.
Y'shayahu / Isaiah chapter 49 begins with a message for the non-Jewish nations. "Hearken, you islands, to me, and listen closely, you nations, from afar; the L-rd called me from the womb, from the innards of my mother He mentioned my name." Y'shayahu / Isaiah chapter 49:1.
The "me" called from the womb could be the prophet Isaiah who was given a mouth "like a sword" in verse 2 to act as G-d's voice in rebuking the people and urging them to return to Him. However we will see in a few more verses that the servant called from the womb is actually the Jewish nation itself.
Being called from the womb to serve G-d is a concept mentioned a few times int he T'nach. Y'rmiyahu / Jeremiah 1:5 says of Jeremiah "When I had not yet formed you in the womb, I knew you, and when you had not yet emerged from the womb, I had appointed you; a prophet to the nations I made you."
This chapter speaks of Isaiah being G-d's prophet, formed from the womb with that task as was Jeremiah -- but it also speaks of the Jewish nation itself as being both the ones Isaiah is educating and the nation of priests G-d also formed from our beginnings (womb) to be the light unto the nations of the world.
Read the very next line. "And He said to me, "You are My servant, Israel, about whom I will boast." Y'shayahu / Isaiah chapter 49:3.
The Jewish people.
Now read lines 4 and 5 which directly follow Israel having been identified as the servant: "And I said, "I toiled in vain, I consumed my strength for nought and vanity." Yet surely my right is with the L-rd, and my deed is with my G-d. And now, the L-rd, Who formed me from the womb as a servant to Him, said to bring Jacob back to Him, and Israel shall be gathered to Him, and I will be honored in the eyes of the Lord, and my G-d was my strength."
The "I" by the speaker is clearly NOT Jesus. It is Isaiah, the prophet speaking of himself and his people (the Jewish nation). G-d formed Isaiah from the womb to be His servant.
G-d made Isaiah His servant, bringing Israel back to Him. G-d also states that. Isaiah’s prophecies will be a “light unto the nations” so that G-d’s salvation will reach nations all over the world.
Missionaries love to "proof text."
What is "proof texting"? Taking a word or line out of context, claiming it is about Jesus, and ignoring the actual context that the claimed passage is an integral part of to understand it.
Jews are called by many names -- Jew (Y'hudin), Israel, Sons of Israel, Jacob, Sons of Jacob, Hebrews. . . Indeed in our prayers we often refer to ourselves as "Bnei Yisrael" (sons of Israel). . .
So, Isaiah is the messenger to the Jewish people, and the Jewish people are the messenger to the rest of the world (the non-Jewish peoples).
G-d says that the Jews will be despised among nations. Ultimately, kings will rise before them and princes will bow down because they are the chosen people of G-d. G-d says that He answered and saved Israel, and He will watch them and make them an eternal people, rebuilding their desolate land. The exiles will be released from their captivity; on their return, they will graze along the road, not hungry, nor thirsty, nor suffering from the heat, because G-d will lead them by springs of water. Mountains will be leveled to smooth roads and overgrown highways will be cleared. The exiles will return from far and wide. Heaven and Earth will rejoice in song that G-d has had mercy on His people.
Yet again the list maker takes a very universal reality (namely having gestated in a womb and being born) and claims that is somehow a prophecy about Jesus. Luke 1:31 says " You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus."
Every child ever born was conceived (somehow), gestated in a womb and was born. How is this a prophecy -- and how could it possibly be a fulfillment of Y'shayahu / Isaiah chapter 49:1.? Luke says that Mary will name her son "Jesus" -- and this is not a prophecy found anywhere in the T'nach (Jewish bible).
Philippians 2:7 says "rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature[a] of a servant, being made in human likeness." Being made "like" a human (likeness does not equal being a human) and has nothing to do with the message of Y'shayahu / Isaiah chapter 49:1. which is a message for the non-Jewish nations. "Hearken, you islands, to me, and listen closely, you nations, from afar; the L-rd called me from the womb, from the innards of my mother He mentioned my name." Y'shayahu / Isaiah chapter 49:1.
