    The Interpretation of Old Testament Prophecy in the New Testament Ever since the beginning of Christianity, there has been the age-old debate between some Christian scholars concerning the interpretation of the Old Testament (OT) prophecy in the New Testament (NT), and whether or not such interpretation is valid.

    In class, after I handed in my first observation, we started talking about the self-fulfilling prophecy.

    According to Dr. Schweingruber’s lecture, “the self-fulfilling prophecy is an assumption or prediction that in itself cause the expected event to occur, thus seeming to confirm the prophecy’s accuracy.” The self-fulfilling prophecy is a funny thing. It is weird to think that if you think that something might happen, it is more likely to happen. The predictions could be both direct or indirect, or even positive or negative. For example, in class we talked about Oedipus, The man who was predicted…

Why, what other interpretations are there? How did they set up their study so that they could clearly tell if self-fulfilling prophecies were operating? Explain how the results confirmed this. The self-fulfilling prophecy is when the first person has expectations of a second person that leads the…

    Once the blind prophet Tiresias arrives in Thebes to tell the anxious Oedipus his prophecy, he is later disrespected by Oedipus for what comprises the prophecy--the fact that Oedipus is the murderer of Laius and that he has an inappropriate relationship with someone close to him. Oedipus is too irrational to listen to what Tiresias foretells, so he instead doubts Tiresias’ competence as an oracle, asserting that Tiresias has “no power or truth” (Sophocles 25). Oedipus blames Tiresias for failing…
