The Prophecy of Israel

#1  Postby Passer » Jul 20, 2015 8:00 am

For me the prophecy of Israel (re inhabiting their land) represents one of the strongest evidences for the veracity of biblical claims to being inspired. I'd like to research this for myself, but if all I read are theist claims I'll get a skewed perspective.

To that end, does someone have a handy link to a site that attempts to debunk the Israel prophecy?

Thanks

EDIT: This is not baiting; I am genuinely interested in researching non believer's claims here. I did the same with the prophecy of Tyre.

Well, first of all, it's not a prophecy. The Jews never left Israel.
Secondly most if not all of the biblical prophecies are either inherently vague, not actually prophecies but historical stories.

Other points of note:
Jesus claimed the end of the earth and rapture would occur in the lifetime of his apostles.
Isreal has been a nation for quite some time now and still no Saviour has reappeared.
The Isreal prophecy, at least I'm assuming you're reffering to the OT one, is a Jewish prophecy.
Yet Isreal is still a Jewish, not Christian state, wit Jewish people. In other words, the Jews do not consider Jesus to be a real prophet or messiah in the first place, nor that he fufilled any of their prophecies.
