Why Did Jesus’ Family Think He Had Gone Mad? Did They Not Know Who He Is?

"And the angel said to her,'“Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God.  And behold,, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. And the Lord God will give to him the throne of his …

Who Wrote the Book of Isaiah? Isaiah’s “Holy One of Israel” Responds

Today's liberal revisionist scholars have posited that the book of Isaiah was authored by numerous unnamed persons over centuries, which stems from their anti-supernatural biases to the prophecies Isaiah made, many of which were fulfilled over a hundred years after he lived. Rather than accept his prophecies of the fall of Assyria, the rise and …

Daniel in the Liberal Revisionists’ Lions’ Den: When, Where, and Who Wrote the Book of Daniel?

Modern liberal revisionists can't stomach the view that Daniel correctly prophesied a variety of events that occurred decades and centuries after his time, so they have invented the notion (following the 3rd century A.D. pagan Porphyry) that Daniel was written by an imposter in the 2nd century B.C. who duped ancient Jews into thinking his …

Daniel’s Fulfilled Prophecies, Postmodernism, and Walking with Jesus Today

King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon had a dream around 600 years before the appearance of Jesus, which he struggled to interpret. He summoned the insights of magicians, sorcerers, astrologers, and enchanters, expecting them to interpret his dream without giving them any details about it. They protested, telling him that no one could ever interpret a dream …

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 …

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 …
