Actually, it is different.<quoted text>
Is this different than arguing about Judaism or anything from the Old Testament?
Fair is fair.
Because Hughbe is supposedly basing his notion of a messiah on prophecy (i.e. references) on the OT, but to resolve the contradiction between his messiah and the prophecy he has to rely on information from the NT. Basically he has to discard the internal logic of the system he pretends to embrace, and receive and externality, AND THEN go back to the original system. Its intellectually dishonest.
