A Few of the Isaiah Prophecies that SCARE Bible Doubters

Around the 8th century B.C., the major prophet of the Jewish Scriptures, Isaiah, made a good number of prophecies that concerned his own existence as a Judean under Assyrian rule in the 8th century B.C. Many of his prophecies would be fulfilled over a hundred years later when Babylon overtook Assyria - and then after …

Deutero Isaiah’s Faulty Premise and Logic

In a prior blog, I shared a quote from a critical scholar called Ulrich Berges on the book of Isaiah that made clear the faulty premise upon which the Deutero Isaiah theories are based, which is that fulfilled prophecies aren't possible. Access that blog here: https://christian-apologist.com/2021/10/25/evidence-of-a-dogmatic-anti-theistic-originator-of-the-deutero-isaiah-theory/?preview_id=3205&preview_nonce=4c93ae6e04&preview=true&_thumbnail_id=3165 This blog continues this discussion with several rebuttals to …

Evidence of a Dogmatic, Anti-Theistic Originator of the Deutero Isaiah Theory

It has been my hunch that scholars who originated the Deutero Isaiah theory in the 18th century did so because of the theological implications of prophecies, which give them hemorrhoidal levels of discomfort. To scholars with atheistic leanings, fulfilled prophecies are impossible, so they simply date the authorship of those prophecies to the time in …

Josephus Debunked Critical Scholars’ Late Dating Claims of Daniel and Isaiah

Around the 1800s, "critical" scholars in German universities realized the divine implications of fulfilled prophecies in the Bible, so rather than accept their possibility, they produced theories to discredit the original authorship and dating of books by Isaiah, Daniel, and others. Their theories are often complicated (such as proposing multiple authors over centuries and mysterious …

A Little History on a Faulty “Scholarly” Notion: Deutero Isaiah

The faulty notion that the book of Isaiah had multiple authors over centuries (rather than a single author ~700 BC) was first shoveled into Biblical thought by Abraham Ibn Ezra in 1145 AD. Before that, everyone (including numerous people in the New Testament, such as Jesus, John, and Paul) attributed the book to a single …

Christianity VS Judaism on Genesis 3 and the FALL

My Jewish coworker recommended that I listen to a video entitled "Playing God" by Rabbi Lorge. You can access the full video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FhX6D8barAk&t=0s. Rabbi Lorge's views (and other Jews' views that I've since discovered) seem to stand in stark contrast to Christian views on Genesis 3, original sin, God's intentions, our immortality, and whether …

“The LORD Said to My Lord” – Psalm 110, Melchizedek, Yahweh, Adonai, and Adoni

Many Jewish eyes have been opened to the truth about our LORD and Lord via passages such as those in Psalms 110:1, 16:2, and 35:22-24. If your eyes haven't yet been opened, I challenge you to read on. This blog analyzes passages about the LORD Yahweh, the Lord Adonai (or Adoni?), and King David. “The …

Alcohol Addiction: Harnessing the Light to Overcome Darkness

Alcohol addiction knows no classist, sexist, or racist boundaries. We’re all susceptible no matter our demographics or circumstances. Too much alcohol (also known as ethyl alcohol or ethanol) over a period of time can poison you, leading to adverse health consequences, such as cirrhosis of the liver, heart disease, cancer, and death. It’s no wonder …

Evidence for GOD: Fulfilled Prophecies by Jeremiah, Isaiah, Daniel, and MORE!

Around 700 years prior to Jesus’ birth, the prophet Isaiah stated that He would come from a stem of Jesse (11:1) in the line of King David and the tribe of Judah. He would be born of a virgin (7:14) and would be called Immanuel (God with us), a wonderful counselor, and a Prince of …
