Yeah, and I just renewed my drivers license through 2015. I wonder if I will get a rebate for the unused portion?

Really!? Aren't you a little old for it being that long?

and don't reply: "that's what she said"

Jesus also fulfills this prophecy because both kings are destroyed long before Jesus is born.

That doesn't seem to fit, to me. It says:

quote:
14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin{almah} shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel{"god with us"}.
15 Butter and honey shall he eat, that he may know to refuse the evil, and choose the good.
16 For before the child shall know to refuse the evil, and choose the good, the land that thou abhorrest shall be forsaken of both her kings.

So to me that is saying that the child will be born before the kings are destroyed, but the kings will be destroyed before the child grows up.

It doesn't makes sense as saying that the kings will be destroyed before the child is even born. It just doesn't read that way; he's born, he eats butter and honey, but then before he grows up the kings will be destroyed.

The only way you can read it and have it make any sense is that it is talking about some future person being born to a woman who hasn't had a child and the child will grow up after the kings have been destroyed.

It certainly doesn't make sense to interpret it as saying that the kings will be destroyed before the child is even born.

It says the child is born, eats good stuff, and before he grows up the kings will be destroyed.

It only makes sense that the child is born before the kings are destroyed.

And its not an uncommon thing. Take a look at the next chapter:

quote:
Isa 8

1 The Lord said to me, “Take a large scroll and write on it with an ordinary pen: Maher-Shalal-Hash-Baz.”
2 So I called in Uriah the priest and Zechariah son of Jeberekiah as reliable witnesses for me.
3 Then I made love to the prophetess, and she conceived and gave birth to a son. And the Lord said to me, “Name him Maher-Shalal-Hash-Baz.
4 For before the boy knows how to say ‘My father’ or ‘My mother,’ the wealth of Damascus and the plunder of Samaria will be carried off by the king of Assyria.”


Same deal. A kid will be born, but before he grows up X will happen. It doesn't make sense for that to be saying that it will happen before the kid is even born.

It can't be Ahaz's boy either because it would be 65 years before one of the kings fell, making Ahaz's boy an old man when it happened.

Well, it could be. You're biasly assuming that the prophecy actually came true. Maybe Isaiah was just wrong and it took longer than was thought.
