Finally! An actual, honest to heavens messianic prophecy!!
But, yet again, it does not fit Jesus.
The non-Jewish magician / seer Balaam is speaking. He is seeing that in the future and says “I see it, but not now; I perceive it, but not in the near future. A star shall go forth from Jacob, and a staff shall arise in Israel, crushing all of Moab's princes, and dominating all of Seth's descendants.” Bamidbar / Numbers 24:17.
Galatians 4:4 says “But when the set time had fully come, G-d sent his son, born of a woman, born under the law.”
Well and good. Jesus was born of a woman (like every other human on the planet).
Jesus was G-d’s son (as are all of us G-d’s sons and daughters) and per Galatians Jesus was born under the rule of the Torah (the “law”), again like all Jews.
But when, oh when, did Jesus actually rule as a king?
When did Jesus crush the princes of Moab?
When did Jesus dominate Seth’s descendants?
Context, context, context!
Bamidbar / Numbers 24:18-19 goes on to say “Edom shall be possessed, and Seir shall become the possession of his enemies, and Israel shall triumph. A ruler shall come out of Jacob, and destroy the remnant of the city." He then lists many other nations who go against the Jews who will be destroyed.
Again, none of this happened with Jesus Edom = Rome. Jesus did not defeat Rome, Rome killed Jesus.
Israel did not triumph 2000 years ago when Jesus supposedly lived -- instead the Romans ruled and eventually destroyed the Temple, burned most of the city (not all: false Jesus prophecy alert!) and eventually expelled most of the Jews (circa 135 CE). . . Yet another "prophecy" that Jesus not only failed to meet -- and indeed did the exact opposite of the prophecy. . .
It is well and good for the anonymous author of Galatians to claim Jesus fulfilled this prophecy, but in reading the quote from Bamidbar / Numbers 24:17 it is clear that Jesus fulfilled none of it.
