    :areyoucra umm Isaiah is not talking about a virgin...you are reading an incorrect translation of the hebrew which actually says young woman

    He has not fulfilled the job of the Moshiach ben David, the goals set out in prophecy in the Tanach
    Gathering in of the exiles: Isaiah 11:12
    Rebuilding of the Temple...not a "spiritual" one a REAL PHYSICAL TEMPLE ON THE TEMPLE MOUNT: Ezekiel 37:26-27
    Rule during a time of world peace: Micah 4:3
    He will rule when all of the Jews are observant of all of G-d's commandments: Ezekiel 37:24
    He will rule when ALL PEOPLE will acknowledge and serve the one G-d: Isaiah 66:23

    you sight alot of psalms....however psalms is not a collection of prophecy...they are songs and poems attributed to the writings of David

    The whole temple thing freaks me out. IF the temple on the temple mount is so important then why did Israel the country let a mosque get built there?

    With all the millions spent on defense, why hasn't the government just rebuilt the temple themselves?

    I see people praying to a wall. A wall. God denounced people who took the templ out of it's context when they elevated it in, I think it was in Ezekiel, or Micah, I'll find that later. Anyway, God said that he didn't care about the temple and soon after, a Godly timeframe 'soon', the temple was destroyed.

    Sounds like God wanted it to be destroyed because people got 'confused'.

    As for 'virgin' and 'young woman' being so differently opposed terms to each other. This is why I have or had now that some bickering people got my thread closed, a poll, and a debate forum over bible translations and should a new more accurate bible be translated.

    I think one should examine the text in Greek written by the apostles who knew the customs, terminology and the Law, and compare those terms or words they used to the Hebrew scriptures. They of all people knew what was what better than all of us combined..

    but there is no prerequisite for the mother of the moshiach ben david to be a virgin....and how many million have mothered sons at a young age?

    Perhaps i should have prefaced this with something i put in my "Evidence that Jesus was the Messiah" thread

    I agree.... do that.... PLEASE do that.

    Study some 1-3 century history of the Christian faith..... like you say, they would know better than we could.

    That's fine..... she just happened to be one.... others are trying to use it as a proof text, I am just pointing out that Mary was indeed a young woman who happened to be a virgin.... take that for what it's worth.

    The Dome of the Rock was there for centuries before the modern state of Israel existed and when it was built Jerusalem was under muslim control and there wasn't a temple there at the time.


    Maybe because they don't want a mass riot on their hands?? And there's freedom of religion!? Also i'd bet money that those within the more religious communities in Israel as well as the Orthodox Jews in the States might crap themselves if someone other than the Moshiach ben David rebuilt the temple.

    The Temple was the home of the Holy of Holies, this was G-d's house!! It was the central point of the jewish faith. I wonder how Scott and the other catholics would react if Vatican City was razed to the ground with nothing left but a side of St. Peter's Basilica and the catholics of the world weren't permitted to rebuild it? I'd wager they'd be making pilgrimages to pray to a wall too!

    If we're talking about the Moshiach ben David i think the Tanach and writings from the sages and people like Rambam should suffice....

    We can discuss the Virgin Birth elsewhere if you wish. The fact remains that there is no basis for insisting that Isaiah 7:14 has anything to do with Jesus..
