Index to 365 Prophecies Jesus Supposedly Fulfilled
This blog, separate from the main blog, will focus on the missionary claim that Jesus fulfilled many prophecies found in the T'nach (Jewish bible).
There are many lists online making this claim -- some tout 365 prophecies, other claim more or fewer, but 365 seems to be a favored number. The list being used here is the one which was found on the Jews for Jesus website. It seems that list has since been removed from Jews for Jesus -- possibly due to this analysis and others like it.
Other missionary sites used to host it and have modified their claims based on analysis of the claims. For example "The Refiner's Fire" used to claim the 365 and now claims 300. . . Jews for Jesus lists 40 "most helpful" claims, Learn Religions lists 44, CBN lists over 300 and so it goes. . .
The list of 365 claims shown on this blog (and originally found on Jews for Jesus website) is still found on other missionary websites including Bibleprobe.
If this subject is of interest you may be interested in Rabbi Yisroel Blumenthal list refuting 353 claims by missionaries found at his blog: Your Pharisee Friend.
Below is the list as originally found on Jews for Jesus. Each claim is a hyperlink to an analysis of that claim. Please note that the list is not yet complete. If there is no hyperlink then the claim has not yet been analyzed.
Before you read the claims and responses I recommend that you read the posts which discuss terminology. Prophecy is not fortune telling or predictions of the future (necessarily). Prophecy is a direct communication from G-d to a human who is tasked with relaying G-d's message to his or her generation. To begin with an understanding of what the bible means, not some modern missionary's misunderstanding, please read these blog posts first:
