This is complete ignorance! Jesus Christ Himself said in rebuttal to satan,,"It is written!" HE LITERALLY believed scripture.
Satan misquoted scripture in his bid to tempt Christ and Christ told him that man does not live by bread alone but by every Word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

You have no answer. What I "like" is irrelevant. You have failed to prove your case.

Circular reasoning. You can't prove that something written in the Bible will take place because the Bible says so. Do you have any tangible evidence that this event will take place any time soon?

Atheists cannot fathom that truth. They have to pigeonhole Christianity so they can keep thinking they understand it. That is why they freak out when told it is not a religion. They have no concept of a personal relationship with God since they do not !believe in Him.
Well I am not an atheist. I do have a personal relationship with God.

Christianity is a religion. Duh

[QUOTE who="Grandpasmurf952]
Considering that the historical Jesus was born a Jew and conducted his ministry entirely from the Hebrew Scriptures as the Greek scriptures had yet to be written,[/QUOTE]

You should do just a bit more research before you jump to make a claim. Greek was used for the OT centuries before Jesus was born. Google it if you doubt me.

http://www.biblica.com/bibles/faq/11/

However, Greek was the language of scholarship during the years of the composition of the New Testament from 50 to 100 AD. The fact is that many Jews could not even read Hebrew anymore, and this disturbed the Jewish leaders a lot! So, around 300 BC a translation of the Old Testament from Hebrew into Greek was undertaken, and it was completed around 200 BC. Gradually this Greek translation of the Old Testament, called the Septuagint, was widely accepted and was even used in many synagogues. It also became a wonderful missionary tool for the early Christians, for now the Greeks could read God's Word in their own tongue.

And along those lines.... I find it amusing that when Mel Gibson (a man I loathe) made his movie "The Passion Of The Christ", he promoted the so-called "fact" that the movie was SO "authentic" that he used teh original ancient languages that the characters spoke, i.e. the common Jews spoke Aramaic, the Jewish priests spoke Hebrew, and the Romans spoke Latin. OOPS ! That made as much sense as having the Roman characters speak Korean. For teh language of teh Roman Empire at that time, was GREEK. NOT Latin.

You've been making the above claim in different threads. So now you can stop and rephrase yourself according to 'the truth' you claim you speak from :)

By the way, if you knew your Biblical history which you don't, you would know the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Septuagint prove the old testament books existed in Hebrew and Greek for centuries prior to Jesus's birth.

8.2 The Old Testament: the Septuagint.

The Septuagint, or LXX, is the oldest Greek translation of the Old Testament. It was begun around 247 BC by seventy scholars in Alexandria, Egypt for an expanding community of Greek speaking Jews, and was completed no later than 117 BC. 7

R. K. Harrison confirms its early use: "While there are certain differences in New Testament usage, there is no doubt that of all Greek versions the LXX was employed predominantly and that it enjoyed independent existence in the period just prior to the time of Christ." 8 The Septuagint was also most likely the standard Old Testament text used by the early Christian church. Early LXX material is included in the Rylands Papyrus 458, which dates back to 150 BC. 9
