Prophecy limbo


Over at Evangelical Realism we’re looking at Justin Martyr’s First Apology, and this week we’re seeing how far he can bend over backwards to try and turn a passage, a phrase, or even a single word to turn into a prophecy that Jesus “fulfilled” somehow. Some of the passages, like Psalm 22, are still used by believers today, but others… well, let’s just say that modern believers, on the whole, aren’t quite so mentally flexible as Justin. Not that this is necessarily a bad thing.
