Is Jesus the Jewish Messiah? Dr. Michael Brown vs Shmuley Boteach

A debate Lee Strobel hosted between Dr. Michael Brown and Rabbi Shmuley Boteach.

"Then after the sixty-two weeks the Messiah will be cut off and have nothing, and the people of the prince who is to come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. And its end will come with a flood; even to the end there will be war; desolations are determined. (Daniel 9:26)

In following the chronological order of the prophetic text of the Daniel 9:26 verse above, Dr. Michael Brown points out that the Prophet Daniel did prophesy that the Messiah would come onto the world scene, 'Before' the destruction of the City [Jerusalem] and the Sanctuary [Historic Second Holy Temple] took place. The destruction of the City and Sanctuary occured in A.D. 70 and was brought on by the Romans. An Event that took place 'After' the historic life and times of Jesus of Nazareth, Who Christians refer to as the Christ/The Messiah.
