 [No title]
Inasmuch as there is much that is likely to be messianic prophecy in Daniel, it is worth our while to give that data within the framework of a survey of the book.
We conclude: the prophecy of the seventy weeks works out rather well - with allowance for some approximation - in reference to the times leading up to Antiochus, yet verse 24 refers entirely to the time of Christ, and there may be vague allusions to that same time in verse 26.
We have already seen at least a glimpse of the truth: the OT prophecies could easily give the impression, not that gentiles would be accepted into the Church as gentiles, but that they would all become proselytes.

In Abrahamic religions, messianic prophecies describe the coming, acts, authority, personality, nature, etc., of the messiah, along with a number of future events or conditions, which are seen as signs of the coming messiah.

 Debunking "Proof Texts" from the Psalms - Part 7
The set of "messianic prophecies" identified by Christians in the Christian "Old Testament" is not congruent with the set of "messianic agenda items" that was developed by the Jewish prophets in the Hebrew Bible.
The Jewish messianic vision is an original concept at the heart of traditional Judaism, and the dream of an eventual redemption is one of its foundations.
The "messianic agenda", which consists of the "action items" (the "messianic prophecies" of Judaism) expected to be executed and completed for the messianic era to be a reality.

 A Ready Defense - Messianic prophecies fulfilled in Jesus
In the Old Testament there are sixty major messianic prophecies and approximately 270 ramifications that were fulfilled in one person, Jesus Christ.
Stoner says that by using the modern science of probability in reference to just eight prophecies, "we find that the chance that any man might have lived down to the present time and fulfilled all eight prophecies is 1 in 1017." That would be 1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000.
This means that the fulfillment of these eight prophecies alone proves that God inspired the writing of those prophecies to a definiteness which lacks only one chance in 1017 of being absolute.

 Rejection of Pascal's Wager: Messianic Prophecies
Many details of the nativity (which no one claims were messianic) such as Mary's song of praise and the annunciation can be shown to be constructed from Old Testament passages.
Thus Isaiah 7:14 is not a messianic prophecy at all but simply a mistranslated passage taken out of context by the early Christians.

 The Old Testament Messianic Hope
These prophecies complete the Old Testament portrait of the coming Messiah, but it is important to remember that the Messianic prophecies were not given like the pieces of a puzzle that, when filled in, give an entire picture of Jesus Christ and His life, death and resurrection.
The Messianic texts continually point beyond the limits of the merely human, and demand, as it were, their fulfillment by more than natural events.

Although I was now viewing the Bible as a credible source, and I was stunned by some of the historical prophecies I examined in the Old Testament, I just couldn't get over the gap dividing the Old Testament predictions from the New Testament Jesus.
Although some of the other predictions I looked at could be called "generalized," taken as a whole, these "Messianic prophecies were remarkable to me! I couldn't get over the odds of just one man fulfilling each and every one of these predictions!

Of the prophecies written in the Bible about events that were to have taken place by now, every one was fulfilled with 100% accuracy.

Matthew 2:1-6 describes the birth of Jesus as the fulfillment of Micah's prophecy.
In that verse, the prophet establishes that he is speaking of Bethlehem the town, not Bethlehem the person, by setting up a context in which he is contrasting the city of Jerusalem with the town of Bethlehem.
A second problem with the claim is that there is also evidence outside of the Bible that shows that Micah 5:2 was regarded as a Messianic prophecy involving the town of Bethlehem.

Despite the clear language of many prophecies, even the language of the Amidah that encapsulated so much of the hopes of Israel, many Jews are ready to be told that prophecies no longer mean what they once were thought to have meant.
