Hi, guys —
- I was wondering if you guys can recommend Pre-Christian, Jewish texts from rabbi's or maybe from rabbinic schools referring to Messianic prophecies?
All the various books I have read always mention that the Jews, living before Jesus' time, expected a Messiah. They point out the Messianic texts from the Old Testament but they don't give any source texts from Jewish rabbi's or rabbinic schools stating that such-and-such biblical text or verse related to the Messiah.
Atheists I have talked to have said that Christian Gospel writers and later Christian writers have looked backed over the Scriptures and found Messianic texts after the fact, meaning after Christ's Glorious Ascension into Heaven.
- Can you help with an appropriate reply to this argument?
