History inside of Prophecy (Genesis 49:10)

History inside of Prophecy (Genesis 49:10)

"History inside of Prophecy"... is a document that was compiled and written because Jewish Rabbi's have been converted to Christ as a result of the truth of this prophecy. This writer has attempted to bring light to the truth of this prophecy as it confirms the truth about what happened to the nation of Israel under Mosaic Law when the Messiah came the first time.

Personal research of secular history has also confirmed this same truth.

I will attempt to convey my thoughts from the following verse...

• Genesis 49:10...The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor the Lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come, and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.

Scepter...The Scepter points toward the authority of God relative to the Torah (the Law of Moses), which contained 613 commandments, and governed the moral and civil laws of the Jewish nation.

Judah...The son of Jacob: one of the twelve tribes of Israel: was a distinct pathway to the Messianic lineage through Joseph and Mary. The most accurate genealogies in the world were kept by the nation of Israel.

Lawgiver...During the life of Christ unlike any other time in history Israel's authority concerning Mosaic Law was altered under the administration of the Roman government. During that period of time certain criminal and civil matters pertaining to the Jew were first politically handled by Roman Officials, and then delegated to an appointed High Priest within the Jewish council of Ancients (i.e., Caiaphas). In previous Gentile Governments such as the Babylonian, Medo -Persian, and Grecian Empires, the Jewish legal right to govern the Nation of Israel was never altered like it was under Roman Dictatorship. (John 18:13, 14) (John 18:31)

Shiloh...Hebrew term for the promised Messiah

This prophecy (Genesis 49:10) given to the Nation of Israel and partially fulfilled during the life of Christ, was confirmed by the historical records of Josephus, the Talmud, and the four Gospels. History of the Roman Empire during the life of Christ reveals the political authority of the Roman government "over" parts of Israel's Mosaic Law. This type of authority from a Gentile government had never altered Mosaic Law during any of Israel's past captivities under Gentile dictatorships. Criminal matters in Israel such as the death penalty were reviewed and handled at Roman discretion. Jewish High priests like Caiaphas were appointed and functioned within the Sanhedrin under Roman dictatorship. Israel's authority of Mosaic Law "departed" under the Roman Authority and thus proved the truth of Gods prophetic sovereignty.

The Jewish nation at that time was limited in many areas of authority. Why? Israel was first subject to the Roman Government. Death by Crucifixion was even a Roman form of punishment. Crucifixion was prophesied in (Psalm 22:16), (Zechariah 12:10). According to Biblical prophecy crucifixion was the way Old Testament records indicated the Lord would die*.

*The Lord could not have been David because David said in (Psalm 110:1), "The Lord said unto my Lord sit thou at my right hand".

Even though Christ was condemned and betrayed by the Jewish people, here are two reasons why the Council of Ancients under Roman dictatorship did not execute Christ themselves, but first delivered him unto Pontius Pilate:

1. Blasphemy according to Jewish law (because Christ made himself equal with God) was punishable by stoning according to Mosaic Law.
2. Jews had no legal right to carry out Mosaic Law but were first subject to the Roman Government or guilty of insurrection.

History confirms Israel's authority was lost (the Scepter departed from Judah) during the life of Christ under Roman Dictatorship. Prophecy was fulfilled in Genesis 49:10 and only confirmed more Biblical truth concerning the promised Messiah. From the Law of Moses, the Prophets, and the Psalms it is proven that Christ is the promised Messiah.

• Christ said in Luke 24:44... all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the Law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.
Christ is the one that died, rose from the grave, and sent the Holy Spirit from Heaven. Christ thus returned to Fathers right hand where God continues to gather Israel from the four corners of the Earth. The prophetic gathering of the Jewish people will continue until Christ's blessed return to set up and restore the Kingdom of Heaven in Jerusalem.

• Genesis 49:10...The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor the Lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come, and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.


Jewish Historical Records that confirm the fact that the "Scepter" or "Authority of Israel" was lost when Shiloh came...

Here are some other nice facts that I found about Israel that will also add too and confirm the above prophecy. The above knowledge and truth about Israel losing it's Mosaic authority ( the scepter departing from Judah) is proven in the History books. The unusal thing about this fullfillment of prophecy when Christ came is...

Israel had never lost Mosaic authority anytime in history during any captivities...except the Roman captivity...when Christ (Shiloh) came.

Here's a small bit of info I collected that also adds to the above prophetic truth...

Jewish Historical Records confirm the fact that the "Scepter" or "Authority of Israel" was lost when Shiloh came...

Here's a glimpse of what Jesus and the disciples faced in tho religious and political world during the Eartly ministry of our Lord...


THE SANHEDRIN

The rise of this great council of the Hebrews took place in the time of Greek supremacy, though there has been some attempt to trace its origins to the council of seventy elders named by Moses. The first mention of the Sanhedrin is in the time of Antiochus the Great (223-187 B.C.) It was evidently an aristocratic body, with the high priest acting as president. When the Roman order was introduced by Pompey, the high priest still retained the position of governor of the nation, making it likely that the Sanhedrin was carrying on.

Herod the Great began his reign by ordering the whole of the Sanhedrin to be put to death, appointing his own council of elders in their place. Under the Roman pro-curators, the internal government of the country was in the hands of the Sanhedrin to a much greater extent. And in the time of Christ and the apostles, the Sanhedrin is frequently mentioned as being the supreme Jewish court of justice. The Sanhedrin was abolished after the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 A.D.

THE ORGANIZATION OF THE SANHEDRIN

The Sanhedrin was composed of 71 priests who served for life and who were selected from the following:
· The acting high priest presided over the council; all former high priests were members.
· Male members of the high priestly families
· Scribes, legal assessors, bureaucrats
· Pharisees and Sadducees
· Elders - tribal and family heads
Criminal judges were members of the Sanhedrin, and twenty-three of them sat in judgment, with two clerks to record votes for acquittal and conviction. In capital cases, argument for acquittal was heard first, then those in favor of conviction. Anyone who had spoken in favor of the accused could not then speak against him; but one who had spoken against the accused could change his testimony in his favor. Sentence for acquittal could be pronounced immediately; but sentence for conviction was reserved for the next day.

In voting, each member stood, beginning with the youngest. A simple majority was sufficient for acquittal; but a majority of at least two votes was required for conviction. More members of the Sanhedrin would be brought in two at a time to vote whenever there was a majority of only one for conviction. When all 71 had voted, the person was acquitted if there was still a majority of only one.

Jesus appeared before the Sanhedrin on a charge of blasphemy (Matt. 26:65; John 19:7). Peter and John were charged with being false prophets and deceivers of the people (Acts 4 and 5), Stephen with being a blasphemer (Acts 6:13 ff), and Paul with being guilty of transgressing the Mosaic law (Acts 23).

The Sanhedrin had the right of ordering arrests by its own officers; of finally disposing of such cases as did not involve capital punishment. A sentence of death had to be ratified by the Roman procurator.

In Antiquities 20:9 Josephus again points out that the Sanhedrin had no authority over capital cases:
"After the death of the procurator Festus, when Albinus was about to succeed him , the high priest Ananias considered it a favorable opportunity to assembly the Sanhedrin. He therefore caused James the Brother of Jesus, who was called Christ, and several others, to appear before this hastily assembled council, and pronounced upon them the sentence of death by stoning. All the wise men and strict observers of the law who were at Jerusalem expressed their disapprobation of this act...Some even went to Albinus himself , who had departed to Alexandria, to bring this breach of the law under his observation, and to inform him that Ananius had acted illegally in assembling the Sanhedrin without the Roman authority."
· This transfer of power is even mentioned in the Talmud: "A little more than forty years before the destruction of the Temple, the power of pronouncing capital sentences was taken away from the Jews."...Jerusalem Talmud, Sanhedrin, filoi 24.
