Daniel 7:13– this is one of the “prophecies” Christians claim is not about Jesus. They mistranslate it as “son of man” when the text (Aramaic) says “LIKE a son of a human being” (k’var enash). That aside it is easy enough to prove that Daniel 7:13 is NOT Jesus — as with most proof texts and false Christian prophecies one just has to read it in context (read the whole chapter).
There is one true prophecy about Christianity in Daniel 7 — read on!
Why do we know that Daniel 7 has nothing to do with Jesus? Yet again because the visions associated with the one “like the son of a human being” never happened with Jesus. Read the chapter. We are told in the next line (14) “dominion and glory and a kingdom, and all peoples, nations, and tongues shall serve him; his dominion is an eternal dominion, which will not be removed, and his kingdom is one which will not be destroyed.” Now missionaries will try to claim this is not an “earthly kingdom” but Daniel 7 makes this lie apparent. Keep reading. . .
Line 17. [He -- the angel -- said] “These huge beasts, which are four, are four kingdoms, which will arise from the earth.”
Kingdoms of the EARTH.
Line 18. “And the high holy ones will receive the kingdom, and they will inherit the kingdom forever and to all eternity.” The high holy ones are not identified — but as you read through the chapter which outlines pretty much all of history it will become obvious that this is Israel. The Jews.
Read through to line 23 — after war after war and earthly kingdom after earthly kingdom “So he (the angel) said (to Daniel), “The fourth beast [represents] a fourth kingdom [that] will be on the earth, which will be different from all the kingdoms, and it will devour the whole land and trample it and crush it.”
Again — EARTHLY Kingdom. . . not Jesus who was never a ruler of an earthly kingdom. . .
10 kingdoms sprout from this last kingdom (which was Rome — and we are still under Western domination aka Rome — the Christians). Next is perhaps one of the only true prophecies about Christianity in the Jewish bible:
“25. And he will speak words against the Most High, and he will oppress the high holy ones, and he will think to change the times and the law, and they will be delivered into his hand until a time, two times, and half a time.”
The Christians oppressed the Jews (Holocaust, Pogroms, Spanish Inquisition — it continues to this very day when the United States excluded Israel from a counter terrorist summit just this week). . . The Christians changed the times (moving the Sabbath to Sunday and changing the calendars) changing the law (Paul and saying no one needs to keep the mitzvot) — but the end of the Christians will come at the hand of G-d, too. . .
Line 26 “And the judgment shall be established, and they will remove his dominion to be destroyed and annihilated until the end.”
And when this last of the kingdoms of Rome (the Christian kingdom) is vanquished by G-d Himself the true messiah will come and as Daniel states 27. “And the kingdom and the dominion and the greatness of the kingdoms under all the heavens will be given to the people of the high holy ones; its kingdom is a perpetual kingdom, and all dominions will serve and obey [it].” — the messianic era will finally arrive, B”H may it come speedily and in our days!
