Reading Isaiah as Christian Scripture

R.T. France on the Old Testament Prophecy, Jesus and the Future of Israel

“No instance where Jesus expects a fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy other than through his own ministry, and certainly no suggestion of a future restoration of the Jewish nation independent of himself.  He himself is the fulfillment to which Old Testament prophecy points, the ultimate horizon of the prophetic vision.”  [R.T. France, “Old testament Prophecy and the Future of Israel” in TynBul 26 (1975), 58]
