Welcome back Greeki
Or perhaps the Old Testament Prophecies arn't that convincing
Then it is rather odd that they convinced anyone, let alone perhaps a majority of the Jews.
According to a Jewish tradition, the Rabbis were very scared of early Christianity and knew that the religion would go on to become successful. In order to save future Jews from both death and definite assimilation, the Rabbis of the time sent a man to infiltrate the Christian communities and change the Christian doctrine to become so distinct from Judaism that it is proselytizing will focus on gentiles and not Jews. He was also to change the Christian doctrine to become favorable to Jews, even outlawing the murder of Jews. This man was named Saul, who later became known as Paul. Paul, who may or may not have been a student of Rabban Gamliel, helped shape the Pauline doctrine that forbade Christians from killing Jews and switched the Christian day of rest from Saturday to Sunday to alienate more Jews as a way of maintaining Judaism without having more Jews succumb to the Christian religion. The first pope, Peter Kephas, is known as Shimon Keifa in Jewish tradition, and he was the author of the liturgical poem Nishmas Kol Chai. Rabbi Yehuda HaChassid of Regensburg (1150-1217) even called Peter a righteous man who had good intentions in his seeming apostasy. Others explain that he was not a secret agent of the Pharisee Rabbis in an attempt to undermine Christianity, but rather he was a total apostate and only repented on his deathbed whereupon he wrote Nishmas.http://rchaimqoton.blogspot.com/2006_08_01_archive.html
And then, why the insertion of the curse on the Hebrew Christians into the Amidah, which a Jew is required to say three times every day? I mean, if our argument wasn't so convincing, why bother?
, especially considering those who wrote the texts about the man who supposedly fuliflled them would have been thoroughly familiar with them and making the story fit
Then the Jews wouldn't have had to do an about face on the LXX, revise their canon, etc.
How did the Evangelists manage to get the Romans to make their practices of Crucifixion fit Psalm 21?
(as well as throwing in a few pagan myths)
Yes, often asserted, as here, without details, let alone proof.
So, details forthcoming, Greeki? And no, Leda and the Swan doesn't count: divine bestiality doth not a Virgin birth make.
Virgil did get it right in Ecologue 4.http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/cgi-bin/ptext?lookup=Verg.+Ecl.+4
wouldn't have been all that difficult. Whether or not this actually happened can't be fully proven one way or the other,
yes, it can.
though you should at least appreciate the skepticism many have.
