Helping Jesus Fulfill Prophecy
by Robert J. Miller
Robert Miller investigates the ways in which Greek oracles, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and others paved the way for early Christian authors to manipulate prophecy. He shows how the argument that Jesus fulfilled prophecy was used to justify both the view that Christians had replaced Jews as God’s chosen people and the aggressive anti-Judaism that followed. It’s time, he suggests, to retire the argument from prophecy.
