My ignorance? You're the one believing butterflies are superman.
You do realise that the Old Testament is basically the Hebrew Bible with some material removed and some added, right?
You are saying that the Prophesies are real because the Bible says so. Well, the New Testament, the book that supposedly says that the prophesies are real, was written AFTER the death of Jesus. Writers had no first-hand experience over what happened. It is obvious that they relied heavily on the Old Testament to prescribe characteristics that Jesus supposedly has. So, what you're doing here is dismiss my source because the events were written shortly after the death of Jesus and rely on sources which were written much, much later. Do you see the idiocy now, or need I explain it again?
Sure, Tacitus, who is highly revered as a historian, is not worth mentioning because he disagreed with you. Sounds completely logical. And don't forget that he had as much reason to hate on Nero -which he did throughout-, so what you say doesn't make sense either.
Perhaps take your advice for your own good.
Listen up mate, because it's clear that you have never done any substantial research into the Bible apart from classes in school.
The Gospels account of John, was written at the time of Jesus. Maybe I should write that again. AT THE TIME OF JESUS. You moron. All this nonsense about the new testament being written after the time of Jesus not only shows your ignorance but shows your desperation, because we have historians who Origen who gave commentaries on those verses 40 years after the death of christ, testifying that the Gospel of John was written at the time of Christ, the writer is unknown, I will give you that, but the time it was written is known to most theological scholars as around 1-2 AD.
