A "cruel" twist of fate? Well, at least you admit what type of god you are worshiping. To be honest, Jesus (if he even did exist), he did NOT fulfill
the prophecies of the Old Testament. Christians took writings that were not even prophecies for The Jewish Messiah , and yet they acted like they were
prophecies to try to prove Jesus. And some prophecies that Jesus did NOT do, Christians just say he'll "return", but no where in the OT does it talk
about having "Faith" in the Messiah or the Messiah dying and coming back to life.
Christianity is confusion, and the Jewish religion (Old Testament) doesn't have the "nicest" god...
Simon Peter starts out on the day of Pentecost explaining that Jesus the Messiah had risen from the dead, "Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the
pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it," (Acts 2:24). Peter then recites a scripture from the Psalms to prove the
truth of his testimony.
Here is an OT scripture referring to the messiah's resurrection which is then explained by Simon Peter:
"For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved: Therefore did my
heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope: Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou
suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance.
Acts 2:24-32 (Simon Peter is speaking)
"Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day.
Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise
up Christ to sit on his throne; He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did
see corruption. This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses."
