Presentation Abstract

In the Old Testament, there are numerous predicted prophecies. J. Barton Payne lists 1,239 predicted prophecies in the Old Testament, which encompass 28.5% of the total verses of the Old Testament. Although they are in the Pentateuch and in the Writings, most of them are mentioned in the (Latter) Prophets. While the New Testament ratified that in Jesus many of those prophecies found fulfillment, the truth is that many others seems to be unfulfilled. Consequently, it is unclear whether those predictions were conditional or God is not able to predict the future. By looking to selected texts of predicted prophecies in the Latter Prophets, this paper attempts to offer criteria on how to determine whether the prophecy was intended to be conditional or unconditional.
