"O L-RD, Who are my power and my strength and my refuge in the day of trouble, to You nations will come from the ends of the earth and say, 'Only lies have our fathers handed down to us, emptiness in which there is nothing of any avail! Can a man make gods for himself, and they are no gods? 'Therefore, behold I let them know; at this time I will let them know My power and My might, and they shall know that My Name is the L-RD".
Jeremiah 16:19-21

by Sophiee Saguy

Daniel 7:13-14 is not about Jesus, but Daniel 7:25-27 paints an explicit picture of Christianity and its ultimate fate:

וּמִלִּ֗ין לְצַ֤ד עִלָּאָה֙ יְמַלִּ֔ל
וּלְקַדִּישֵׁ֥י עֶלְיוֹנִ֖ין יְבַלֵּ֑א
וְיִסְבַּ֗ר לְהַשְׁנָיָה֙ זִמְנִ֣ין וְדָ֔ת
וְיִתְיַֽהֲב֣וּן בִּידֵ֔הּ
עַד־עִדָּ֥ן וְעִדָּנִ֖ין וּפְלַ֥ג עִדָּֽן׃

“It [the church] will speak words against the Supreme One [i.e. G-d],
and will exhaust [or ‘harass’] the Most High (G-d), and will oppress (G-d’s) high holy ones [i.e. Israel];
it will conspire to change the Calendar and the Torah
and Israel [lit., ‘they’] will be given into its power
until [the end of] a ‘period’, ‘periods’ and a part of a ‘period’.”

Let me pause and point out that Christians changed the calendar and changed the Torah (changed Shabbat to Sunday, said no circumcision, no following the mitzvot, worship a man as god, etc.) and we Jews have lived under the power of the Christians for 2000 years — the victims of pogroms, crusades, holocausts, inquisitions, etc. Let’s continue. . .

וְדִינָ֖א יִתִּ֑ב
וְשָׁלְטָנֵ֣הּ יְהַעְדּ֔וֹן
לְהַשְׁמָדָ֥ה וּלְהֽוֹבָדָה עַד־סוֹפָֽא׃

“But then a Court will be established,
and they will remove its dominance
which will be destroyed and annihilated completely…”

וּמַלְכוּתָ֨א וְשָׁלְטָנָ֜א וּרְבוּתָ֗א
דִּ֚י מַלְכְוָת֙ תְּח֣וֹת כָּל־שְׁמַיָּ֔א
יְהִיבַ֕ת לְעַ֖ם קַדִּישֵׁ֣י עֶלְיוֹנִ֑ין
מַלְכוּתֵהּ֙ מַלְכ֣וּת עָלַ֔ם
וְכֹל֙ שָׁלְטָ֣נַיָּ֔א לֵ֥הּ יִפְלְח֖וּן וְיִֽשְׁתַּמְּעֽוּן׃

“…and the kingdom, the dominion and the greatness
of the kingdoms below all the heavens
will be given to the people of the Holy One’s high holy ones [i.e. Israel];
that kingdom will be a permanent kingdom
and all other dominions will serve and obey it.”
