Re: other scriptures
that which is commoly recieved and accepted in the 66 books of old and 27 of the New.
OMFG! What are you drinking, little dude?
The canon accepted by most protestants consists of 39 books of the Old Testament (the same 24 as the Hebrew, but with four split in two and one split into twelve) and the 27 of the New, for a total of 66 for the whole book.
Why am I telling you this? Why can't you even bother with being accurate about your own material? Where can I score whatever you are on, Dusty?

dual fulfillment
thanks for that technical correction
My pleasure. Now I'm going to give you some advice, on how to do better in this Matthew / Isaiah thing. You appear to be championing the idea of "dual fulfillment". That is, although Isaiah was talking about a child to be born at that time, and knew it, he was also talking about another child, to be born at a later date, who would be a much bigger deal -- though he may not have known about that part. "Mysterious ways" and all that. Yeah?
If so, then you could greatly improve your plausibility if you could find at least one other instance where dual fulfillment of prophecy takes place; but this one should be entirely in the Old Testament. Assuming this is the sort of thing god likes to do, there should actually be a lot more of it in the hundreds of years covered in the 39 books than there are all of a sudden in the two generations covered by the 27. Yeah?
But just one would be a good start. Somewhere in the Hebrew scriptures, a prophecy that gets fulfilled twice, without having to use additional texts in other languages. That's all it would take to be at least plausible. It ought to be easy, if the doctrine of dual fulfillment is even remotely true.
