Bible verse of the day #26


Prophecies are evidence for the Bible, are they? Well what about failed ones, like Genesis 49:13?

“Zebulon shall dwell at the shore of the sea; he shall become a haven for ships, and his borders shall be at Sidon.”

The prophecy, made by Jacob, claimed that the borders of Zebulon’s tribe would reach the sea, but they never did. They didn’t even  reach Sidon. Joseph is a great prophet, isn’t he?

This is just one of the many failed Biblical prophecies. Some people might claim that the prophecy ‘just hasn’t happened yet,’ but it is extremely unlikely that an ancient tribe of Zebulon will rise again and conquer this land.
