Outlines Of Jewish History -Rev. Francis E. Gigot D.D.

Section II. Predictions and Influence.

 

 

 

I.

PREDICTIONS OF THE PROPHETS:

              1. Their Supernatural Character:

              On what principal grounds questioned in our century?

 

                           

 

                            These rationalistic grounds

              Utterly inadequate.

 

                                         

 

                                          Clearly opposed to

              Veracity of prophets. Statements of Our Lord and New Testament writers.

 

             

 

              2. Their Manifold Object:

              The Jewish people; the heathen nations.

 

                            The Messias and His kingdom.

 

             

 

              3. Their Chief Characteristics:

              Moral and religious import.

 

                            Lack of ambiguity.

 

                            Obscurity (its principal causes).

 

                            Conditional fulfilment.

 

 

 

II.

INFLUENCE OF THE PROPHETS:

              1. Obstacles to be Overcome:

              Popular religious degeneracy (sensual idolatry; mere formalism).

 

                            Opposition of kings and princes.

 

                            Conditional character of prophetical predictions.

 

              2. Means of Success:

              Certain features of the prophetical institution.

 

                            Personal moral qualities of the prophets.

 

                            Preternatural powers.

 

              3. General Results (Moral—political—religious).
