The argument from prophecy by Brownlow Maitland, Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge (Great Britain). Christian Evidence CommitteePages: The Argument from Prophecy is an article from The Old and New Testament Student, Volume View more articles from The Old and New Testament Many many books written by men Have prophecy in the that tells you about a later event in the book. It is called foreshadowing. There is a prophecy in Harry potter that says one of them has to die for the other to live. What do you know the prophecy was right. . The Argument from the Bible is usually regarded as a kind of "cumulative-case" argument. It may be formulated as follows: (1) The Bible contains a large number of prophecies of future events which have been remarkably fulfilled. (2) The Bible does not contain any unfulfilled prophecies.

The greatest prophecy in the Book of Daniel is contained in the ninth chapter, the prophecy concerning the 70 weeks, transmitted from heaven through Gabriel. (Daniel ). To many readers of the Book of Daniel it is not quite clear what the expression "seventy weeks" means, and when it is stated that each week represents a period of seven. Micah says that his message will be good to those who do good, but those who treat God as an enemy and God's people as easy prey can expect to be expelled from the land () (Homer Heater, Jr., Notes on the Book of Micah, unpublished class notes in seminar in the preexilic Old Testament prophets [Dallas Theological Seminary, Fall ], 37). Thankfully, the author gives us the answer. John specifically and repeatedly identifies his book as a prophecy (; ; , 10, 18, 19). Why is this important? It means that if we understand how to approach the other prophetic books of the Bible, we will have some idea how to approach and interpret this prophetic book.

The Argument from Prophecy: The History of the Gentiles All throughout the Old Testament, there is a shocking claim that the tiny, local religion of the Jews would cover the whole planet. If we were to transfer this to the realm of politics, it would be as shocking as hearing that Paupa New Guinea has been insisting that they would be the world. Grudem did his doctoral dissertation on this subject, and he edited it into popular form in a book entitled, The Gift of Prophecy in the New Testament and Today (Crossway, ), and then incorporated his argument in his Systematic Theology (Zondervan, ). His monograph was updated in Studies of Greek oracles, the Dead Sea Scrolls, translations of the Hebrew Scriptures into Greek and Aramaic, and the writings of Josephus explore the interpretive techniques that paved the way for the New Testament's manipulation of prophecy. This book analyzes how the belief that Jesus fulfilled prophecy became an argument to justify a new notion: the view that Christians had replaced Jews as God's /5(6). item 3 The Argument from Prophecy by Brownlow Maitland (English) Hardcover Book Free Sh - The Argument from Prophecy by Brownlow Maitland (English) Hardcover Book .
