You may use quotes from google docs, but not a whole doc. Let the debate begin.

Jesus was regarded by the Jews as a man of God and a prophet. But they rejected him on the will of the Pharisees, who were afraid of an uprising of their power and Rome. But they never looked at the Messianic prophecies, which Jesus fulfilled.

"Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel." (Isaiah 7:14)

This prophecy from Isaiah was fulfilled in the Gospel of Matthew, where an angel came to Joseph, who was the fianc"e of Mary, a virgin girl around the age 14 or so.

"Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel," which is translated, "God with us." (Matthew 1:23)

As well, Jesus was born in Bethlehem, where the prophet Micah wrote, "But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah,
Are not the least among the rulers of Judah; For out of you shall come a Ruler Who will shepherd My people Israel."

When Jesus was born, the king of the province, Herod, ordered a massacre of all male infants because 3 magi came to pay homage to the baby king (Matthew 2), which fulfilled the prophecy of Jeremiah, "Thus says the Lord: 'A voice was heard in Ramah, Lamentation and bitter weeping, Rachel weeping for her children, Refusing to be comforted for her children, Because they are no more.'"

1. Alma means young woman, not virgin, as a matter of fact this same word was used 7 times in the Tanakh and these same translators translated the other six as "a young woman."
2. Anyone can be born in Bethlehem, Jesus still hasn't provided his birth certificate that he was born there, and that is not a messianic prophecy that the messah would be born in bethlehem.

I can't wait to see how this turns out! I agree with PikaNAW that Jesus is the Messiah. I hope to see the outcome on PikaNAW favor!
