I have followed Ben Shapiro’s stellar course and have been amazed by his strong conservatism and principled stand on most things.
I have also watched the video below with great interest. Joe Rogan asks Ben about his view of Jesus Christ. Like most Christians, I am not surprised by Ben’s answer—for a modern Jew, Ben’s argument is a generic one at best.
Ben Shapiro says Jesus “was just another Jew who tried to lead a revolt and was killed for His troubles”.— Stew Peters (@realstewpeters) October 13, 2023
“I believe, like most Jews, that Jesus was NOT a prophet, performed NO miracles, and was NOT raised from the dead.”

It would be all too easy to say that civilized people will let you have your personal beliefs, but prophecy will not.
The hundreds of “Messianic” prophecies fulfilled in Christ’s lifetime (most in the last 24 hours of his life) are not just an argument, they are a gargantuan opposing bulwark against the standard everyday Jewish argument that Shapiro espouses.
These prophecies were fulfilled against the odds of multi-millions to one—they are a faithless gambler's worst nightmare.
Indeed, they are a promise—not a gamble—that in the last day all those who stake their futures with their lives will pay with their lives. This can be said quite without anger. It is almost a mathematical equation.
What follows these previously fulfilled prophecies is a barrage of new messages we call “premillennial” prophecies. Since the former utterances were all fulfilled to the letter, we have no doubt that the latter will be also. Sooner than you think.
Among the hundreds of premillennial prophecies found in both Old Testament and New Testament is one that we at least can hope will become part of Ben Shapiro’s experience.
And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn (Zechariah 12:9-10).
The aforementioned prophecy is the culmination of another prophetic event. It is worldwide, no one will doubt, no one will attempt to argue it away. It is not the day Messiah appears, it is the day Messiah returns.
Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory (Matt. 24:29-30).
I am a fair theologian, a 50-year student of biblical eschatology, and have been called into the prophetic ministry now for about 55 years. Seeing is what I do. The future is not obscure to me.
In all humility, and with deference to Ben Shapiro, I can honestly say that I hope his voice is not among those I heard in a vision (among many) that I had about 35 years ago.
This is the vision:
