Scriptural References that Don't Exist



One of the most common contentions made by Christians is that Jesus fulfilled all the prophecies in the TaNaKh that refer to the messiah. A careful investigation of some of these alleged prophecies reveals that they don't exist! No where, for example, in the TaNaKh is there a prophecy that contends that the messiah will be a Nazarene. Yet, according to Matthew 2.23:

And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, "He shall be called a Nazarene."

In fact, the word Nazarene does not appear in the TaNaKh! Furthermore, there is Matthew 27.9-10:

Then was fulfilled what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet, saying, "And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the value of Him who was priced, whom they of the children of Israel priced, "and gave them for the potter's field, as the LORD directed me."

Both passages quote prophecies supposedly recorded in the TaNaKh which can nowhere be found!
