Jottings – Biblical Prophesy Fulfilled


All the different epochs of the remarkable history of Israel were predicted long before they were reached. Their sojourn in Egypt and servitude, as well as the duration of that period, was announced to Abraham. The Babylonian captivity of 70 years and the return of a remnant to occupy the land once more was announced by the pre-exile prophets, who also predicted a far greater and longer exile, their present world-wide dispersion and a return which up to 1914 has not yet come.1

Fulfilled prophecy is indeed a potent argument for the divine inspiration of the Bible. The above quote, written in 1914 and first published in 1917, clearly alludes to the Biblical prophecy (written thousands of years earlier) that Israel would one day return to the land, yet again.

Some 30+ years after the above quoted article was written and first published the modern day State of Israel came into existence.
