The Fallacy Of Book Of Isaiah !!!



                                                             


1.Isaiah (770BC-?)
2.Cyrus (576 BC–530 BC)


The Jewish apologists would have us believe that Isaiah prophesied specifically that Cyrus would be Babylon's conqueror and would enter through gates, and that he made this prediction over 140 years before the event. What most people do not realize in reading Isaiah 44:28 is that  Cyrus  was not even born when this prophecy was made , there is a massive gap of 200 years between both . In reality, this section of Isaiah was written shortly before 537 BCE.

Yet Isaiah defying all the limitations , something no prophet has ever attempted ,would be indulging in such predictive predictions.Has this been so , I am pretty sure Isaiah would have even given us the name of Jesus with the same accuracy as he did of Cyrus.

Isaiah prophesied in the reigns of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah (1:1). His ministry thus occurred in the Period  ca. 740-701 B.C. This was some 150 years before Cyrus came to the throne!

I  have amply stated that Isaiah never fulfilled any prophecy like:
a) Isa 21: 2, 9
Go up, O Elam, and lay siege O Media...Fallen, fallen is Babylon; and all the images of her gods he has shattered to the ground."

Babylon's gods were not destroyed and tumbled to the ground and shattered by battle-crazed enemy warriors. Babylon peacefully surrendered in 539 BCE to Cyrus the Persian (not to a Median lead coalition, Cyrus having defeated and absorbed the Median empire ca. 560 BCE).

According to a clay cylinder called the Cyrus Cylinder, Cyrus made a great show of respecting and honoring Babylon's gods, even asking for their blessing on him and his son as the new rulers of Babylon. Marduk's hand was held by Cyrus and later his son as part of the swearing in ceremonies for Babylonian kings !

 In short we call these pseudo prophecies a phenomenon of “Prophecies of Retrodictioni.e prophecies were not written until after the occurrence of the events that they describe.
