About the Muslim Argument that Isaiah 9 and 53 are NOT about Jesus because they are in the Past Tense

  That is one argument I have read. I have to disagree because in the OT prophecies are in 2 ways: in the FUTURE tense and in the PAST tense. In the past tense because the author is SO SURE it will come true that he writes as if it had already happened. What is […]
