It's difficult to comment on this article, Prasch covers so much ground.
On just a first reading, he does put many world events in a Biblical context, but is this the correct interpretation? Time, and the Bible, will tell.
The AV rendering of Zechariah 12:3 is much stronger: And in that day I will make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered against it.
Zechariah 12:2 refers to Jerusalem as a cup of trembling.
Watch this space, 'coz it's happening now, it seems.
Brian Ross (14/10/2011 20:57) Jacob Prasch may be viewed as something of an extremist, himself. However, I have heard him expound passages from the Jewish Scriptures (he is, I believe, fluent in Hebrew, and an expert in Biblical Hebrew), and been amazed at some of the truths that he was able to draw out of the Word.
Accordingly, and agreeing with Martin that there is a lot of meat in the above article, I would be cautious about rejecting what the brother Prasch has said. A first reading certainly seems to suggest that he has his facts straight, and that his interpretation is not opposed to the Scriptures.
Martin Lisemore (14/10/2011 21:12)
Yes, Brian, you are correct. Prasch is fluent in Hebrew and an expert in Biblical Hebrew.
I have known both Yacov and Pavia Prasch, albeit briefly, but that a very long time ago. As said in another thread some weeks ago, I learned basic Hebrew from Pavia. Israeli Jews brought it up to speed and corrected my Hungarian accent.
Sadly, in a gentile world, I've neglected my Hebrew.
Prasch is a difficult character; tedious to deal with, pedantic and single minded. From reading Moriel it's difficult to know what meets his approval. But I would be the last one to cast him aside.
I too have heard him expound the Hebrew Scriptures in a Messianic Jewish Fellowship in Leeds, and been left breathless, indeed, in awe at some thing he said.
I tend to the view he speaks the mind of God, and that for this time, but I cannot fall in behind him on everything. That is, not yet! My own immaturely gets in the way.
I shall read this article many more times, Bible in hand, before I decide.
Nice to hear from you again Brother Brian, and even better to experience a degree of agreement.

Jacob is, of course, but a man - albeit a man with, I believe, significant insight! We should treat his words as the Bereans would have done. However, given the choice, I would much rather be at one of his seminars, than be at any of the goings-on within the buildings of the Queen's Cross Parish "Church", Aberdeen!!!!

I've only read about that Aberdeen church, and chiefly on CT; even so, I too would rather hear Prasch, in whatever media, than be a part of an apostate church.
As a matter of fact, it was in the early years after leaving the denominations that I sought out Biblically sound preachers and teachers, and found them, Prasch being but one.

I don't know of anyone who can can argue his point biblicaly with him...I have yet to here anyone disagree his stance
from a biblical point of view...The road is narrow thank God for sending someone with a lamp..
