Why the Jews Specifically Expected the Messiah in the 1st Century AD(it was because of the Daniel 9 Prophecy)

For us Christians,Daniel 9:24-27 says a certain messiah would be ” cut off, and have nothing ” ( be killed ) after a certain time.It refers to the Messiah ( with a capital M ). All NT scholars agree that the Jews of the 1st century AD expected the Messiah to come. Why not in 300 BC, or 200 AD, or 500 AD? It was because of the Daniel prophecy.

Daniel 9:24-27 prophecy

It is one that can be interpreted in a way that it is about the Time Period for when the Messiah Jesus would come.The scholars say that the Jews of the 1st century in Palestine were expecting the Messiah to come then?Why?It can only be that they saw Daniel 9:24-27 as being about him.Here is the documentary proof:

The Documentary Evidence

The Essenes and their writings in Qmran, it shows they believed the Messiah would come in their time period.They existed from 250 BC to 70 AD,numbered 4,000(according to Jewish historian Josephus) and were also 100% against slavery.

James Tabor,a skeptical NT scholar,in The Jesus Dynasty (2007),says the Essenes in their writings show they thought Daniel 9:24-27 was about the Messiah.

Flavius Josephus ( 37-100 AD )

He is a famous Jewish historian,who in his The Jewish Wars, which told of the Jewish revolt of 66-70 AD says in Book VI, 5.4, about:

” An ambiguous oracle that was also found in their ancient writings,how about that time, one from their country should become governor of the habitable earth.”

(He can only be referring to the Daniel 9:24-27 prophecy).

Tacitus ( 50-117 AD )

He was the greatest of the Roman historians, wrote in his History ( Note: of the Roman empire), Book V, 13:

” The majority were deeply impressed with the persuasion that it was contained in the ancient writings of the priests that it would come to pass that at the very time, that the East would renew its strength and they that should go forth from Judea should be rulers of the world. ”

Suetonius ( 75-150 AD )

He is another famous Roman historian, in his Lives of the Ceasers( chapter on the Life of Vespasian ) says:

” A firm had long prevailed through all the East that it was fated for the empire of the world at that time to devolve on someone who should go forth from Judea. ”

Jesus,Simon Wiesenthal,the Nazi Hunter,and Claiming to be God

ACCORDING to JUDAISM,to its standards,Jesus undeniably says he is God in the gospels.Muslims just can not accept it.Who knows why?

In Judaism

If I steal from YOU then my friend(a human) can NOT forgive the sin for ME in YOUR place.I have NOT stolen from HIM but from YOU.I have to ask YOU to forgive me for what I did to YOU.

Only GOD can do it in YOUR place.Why?Since when I stole from YOU I was also commiting a SIN against,not only YOU but against GOD.

Jesus Forgives the Sins of Others (who had done him no harm):

Mark 2:1-12

Matthew 9:1-8

Luke 5:17-26

They have Jesus say he is God.

Mark 2:1-12:

“A few days later, when Jesus again entered Capernaum, the people heard that he had come home.So many gathered that there was no room left, not even outside the door, and he preached the word to them. Some men came, bringing to him a paralytic, carried by four of them. Since they could not get him to Jesus because of the crowd, they made an opening in the roof above Jesus and, after digging through it, lowered the mat the paralyzed man was lying on. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, “Son, YOUR SINS are FORGIVEN.”
Now some teachers of the law were sitting there, thinking to themselves, “Why does this fellow talk like that? He’s BLASPHEMING! Who can FORGIVE SINS but GOD alone?”

Immediately Jesus knew in his spirit that this was what they were thinking in their hearts, and he said to them, “Why are you thinking these things? Which is easier: to say to the paralytic, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up, take your mat and walk’? But that you may know that the SON OF MAN(Jesus)has authority on earth to FORGIVE SINS” He said to the paralytic,”I tell you, get up, take your mat and go home.” He got up, took his mat and walked out in full view of them all. This amazed everyone and they praised God, saying, “We have never seen anything like this!””

Simon Wiesenthal (1908-2005)

He was a man of contradictions,Jewish,who was in concentration camps and survived.He lost 89 relatives in the Holocaust.After the war he began capturing the Nazi criminals who had killed so many.He says he helped capture Eichmann and 1,100 other Nazis.One was the man who had captured ANNE FRANK,the famous diarist.Lately his reputation is under attack and it is possible he was less noble.There are real inconsistencies in his different accounts of his life plus available independent records.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simon_Wiesenthal

About an event Wiesenthal claims occurred

When he was in a concentration camp he was once taken to a German hospital.A nurse took him to a lonely room,where a 21 year-old German soldier was dying.He told him he had participated in a massacre of Jews,and asked Simon Wiesenthal to FORGIVE him for killing Jews.

Simon Wiesenthal did not answer,nothing.He just left.Later he told his story to a fellow prisoner,a RELIGIOUS Jew.The man told him he had done right.He could NOT forgive him for something he had not done to him but to OTHERS.Only GOD could do it.After the war he went to see the mother of the soldier to tell her of how he died,but did not have the heart to tell her he had participated in an atrocity.He wrote a book about it:“The Sunflower”.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Sunflower:_On_the_Possibilities_and_Limits_of_Forgiveness

The book “The Sunflower”

Years later he wrote his account and asked 53 intellectuals to answer the question:”Did HE do the right thing?Should he have FORGIVEN the soldier?”
Among the contributors are Desmond Tutu of South Africa/ the Dalai / Primo Levi(the Auschwitz survivor,a Jewish-Italian intellectual).

IS THE KORAN JUDEOPHOBIC/ANTISEMITIC?

SURA 5:64 says:

“They (note:the JEWS) say: “Allah’s hand is fettered.” Their hands are fettered and they are accursed for saying so. No, but both His hands are spread out wide in bounty. He bestows as He wills.

That which has been revealed to you from your Lord is certain to increase the contumacy and disbelief of many of them, and WE (note:Allah) have cast among THEM(note:the JEWS)ENMITY and HATRED till the DAY of RESURRECTION. As often as they light a fire for war, Allah extinguishes it. Their effort is for corruption in the land, and Allah loves not corrupters.”

ANALYSIS

Notice it states that Allah himself,and I repeat HIMSELF,will be the one responsible for placing ENMITY and HATE inside the JEWS until when?Until the end of the life of Mohammed?No.It’s until the DAY of RESURRECTION which still hasn’t arrived.

THEREFORE, A MUSLIM…

Has to believe such an idea that Allah put a CURSE on the Jews until the day of resurrection and that in general they are evil,by the will of Allah.Incredible.And they even find proof of it in history,for example:

1.PAUL(a JEW of the 1st century AD):Muslims consider him to be a liar and the true founder of Christianity.
2.MARX(a JEW,1818-1883):the founder of COMMUNISM which has caused the death(in the 20th century) of almost 100 MILLION lives in TIME of PEACE.
3.TROTSKY(real name BRONSTEIN,1879-1940):another JEW who,as chief of the Red Army of Russia,saved the Communist revolution from being destroyed during the Russian Civil War.
4.The STATE of ISRAEL

BUT ISN’T CHRISTIANITY ALSO AS JUDEOPHOBIC?

Au contraire,Paul,despised by the Muslims and who is a prophet in Christianity,and a Jew 100%,wrote that his Jewish people have not been rejected by God:

ROMANS 11:1-2:

“I ask then: Did God REJECT his people? BY NO MEANS! I am an Israelite MYSELF, a descendant of Abraham, from the tribe of Benjamin. God did NOT REJECT his people.”

INFLUENCE OF SURA 5:64 ON THE THINKING OF QARADAWI

He is an idol in the Muslim world and has a weekly program in AL-JAZEERA,the famous channel considered to be the CNN/BBC of the arab-speaking world.His program is watched by millions.He is very respected as a Koranic authority and is:
1.In favor of killing apostates from Islam.
2.In favor of suicide attacks on Israeli civilians(innocent men,women,and children).
Of course he knows SURA 5:64.It’s for that reason that he says the HOLOCAUST was a DIVINE PUNISHMENT against the JEWS(the death of 6 million innocents).It is in a youtube video(1 min).Here are the English words that appear in the subtitles:

“Throughout history Allah has imposed upon the (Jews)people who would punish them for their corruption.The LAST PUNISHMENT was carried out by HITLER by means of all the things he did to them.Even though they exaggerated this issue,he managed to put them in their place.

This was DIVINE PUNISHMENT for them.Allah willing,the NEXT TIME will be at the hands of the believers.To conclude my speech I’d like to say that the only thing I hope for is that as my life approaches its end to go to the land of jihad and resistance,even if in a wheelchair.I will shoot Allah’s enemies,the Jews.”
