Samuel Proofs

Jewish Apologetics >> Nevi’im Proofs >> Samuel Proofs

Jesus was an anointed king (I Samuel 2:10; Matthew 28:18; John 12:15).

This entire chapter is Hannah’s prayer. We see in verse one that the child (Samuel) Hannah is praying for is called God’s horn. Samuel is a judge. He rules according to God’s laws and guidance (I Samuel 7:3). Samuel is also prophet – therefore he is a Moshiach – an anointed one (I Samuel 3:20-21).

If one reads the entire chapter and the chapters following, one will realize that this supposed prophecy is talking about Samuel.

Jesus was from David’s seed (II Samuel 7:12; Matthew 1:1,6).

This prophecy is referring to Solomon. This seed of David will build a house for God (I Kings 8:12-13). This seed of David will go astray and be corrected by God (I Kings 11:4, 11-12) yet Christianity claims that Jesus never sinned.

It is very clear that this supposed messianic prophecy is really talking about Solomon.

Jesus is not of the line of David. Jesus supposedly did not have a biological father (Matthew 1:18). However, the tribal lineage (in this case from David’s line) comes only from the biological father (Numbers 1:18).

This means, that in the simplest example, Jesus is found not to be from David’s seed.

Jesus was the son of God (II Samuel 7:14; Luke 1:32).

This prophecy is referring to Solomon. This seed of David will build a house for God (I Kings 8:12-13). This seed of David will go astray and be corrected by God (I Kings 11:4, 11-12) yet Christianity claims that Jesus never sinned.

It is very clear that this supposed messianic prophecy is really talking about Solomon.

Jesus was from David’s house whose throne will be established forever (II Samuel 7:16; Luke 3:31; Revelation 22:16).

Jesus never served as a king and had no access to David’s throne. Jesus is not a descendant of David (Matthew 1:18) since the tribal lineage (in this case from David’s line) comes only from the biological father (Numbers 1:18).

This means, that in the simplest example, Jesus is found not to be from David’s seed and has no legitimacy to the eternal throne.

Jesus had gentiles flock to him (II Samuel 22:44-45; Matthew 8:10).

This entire chapter is David praising God for delivering him from his enemies (II Samuel 22:1). Verse 44 states that the person (David) was allowed to escape from his contenders amongst hi people yet this did not happen to Jesus (Matthew 27:20,26).

Verse 45 – in context – refers to David speaking about all his enemies who hear of him and God’s strength and protection of David. These people who do not know David but hear of him will be so fearful that they would obey his orders.
