How Isaiah 7 disproves the deity of Jesus

Share

 

Christian missionaries often like to quote Isaiah chapter 7 from the Jewish Old Testament, because they believe it makes a clear prophesy about Jesus. The specific verses they cite are verses 13-14 which says:

Then Isaiah said, "Hear now, you house of David! Is it not enough to try the patience of men? Will you try the patience of my God also? Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.

According to missionaries the above verse clearly speaks about Jesus, and furthermore the verse also points to Jesus’ deity because according to Isaiah 7:13-14 the one born of the virgin birth will be called Immanuel, meaning God is with us, so therefore Jesus must be God, right?

Well if that was the case, then how come no Jewish community were awaiting the birth of God from a virgin? There is no shred of any historical evidence that indicates any Jewish community believed that a young lady was going to be giving birth to God himself, and that God was going to dwell and live amongst the people as one of them after being given birth to.

In fact one can safely say that if you were alive two to three thousand years ago within the Jewish community, and you made such a claim, you’d be accused of blasphemy for saying that God would be born of a women, they’d probably stone you for that!

Nonetheless while having said all of that, how about we read Isaiah chapter 7 verses 13-16, not simply stopping at verse 14, for if one just literally read on by just a little more, one would see that this prophecy completely refutes the idea that Jesus, or the Messiah would be God. Here it is in context:

Then Isaiah said, "Hear now, you house of David! Is it not enough to try the patience of men? Will you try the patience of my God also?  Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.  He will eat curds and honey when he knows enough to reject the wrong and choose the right.  But before the boy knows enough to reject the wrong and choose the right, the land of the two kings you dread will be laid waste (Isaiah 7:13-16)

So according to this prophecy, this child that’ll be born of a virgin (some say it says young woman rather than virgin) will have to learn about right and wrong, and there will be a point in time when this child doesn't know enough about rejecting something wrong or bad.

Now ask yourself, are these the attributes of the all mighty God? The fact that this child won’t know right from wrong, good from bad, and will have to learn these things, proves that this person cannot possibly be God, as God is all knowing, yet these are clear attributes of ignorance, are the Christian missionaries accusing God of ignorance?

Just imagine for a second that this child is actually God, that would mean there was a point in time when God didn't really know right from wrong! Good from bad! That God had to learn about these things!

So as one can see, Isaiah 7 is actually a great refutation to the supposedly deity of Jesus and the Messiah, Isaiah 7 clearly proves that the one being spoken about, the one born of a young woman was not going to be God. That is unless Christian missionaries really want to argue that there was a point in time when God didn’t know right from wrong, good from bad, you really want to say that?
