Even if the individual claiming personal revelation performs miracles, they do not prove he is a genuine prophet.All the miracles show – assuming they are genuine – is that he has certain powers. Judaism, unique among all of the world's major religions, does not rely on "claims of miracles" as the basis for its religion.(Targum – Isaiah 11:2; Maimonides – Teshuva 9:2) Prophecy can only exist in Israel when the land is inhabited by a majority of world Jewry, a situation which has not existed since 300 BCE.During the time of Ezra, when the majority of Jews remained in Babylon, prophecy ended upon the death of the last prophets – Haggai, Zechariah and Malachi.
Whenever anyone's belief is based on seeing miracles, he has lingering doubts, because it is possible the miracles were performed through magic or sorcery.(1) According to Jewish sources, the Messiah will be born of human parents and possess normal physical attributes like other people.He will not be a demi-god, (2) nor will he possess supernatural qualities.When read correctly, Isaiah 53 clearly [and ironically] refers to the Jewish people being "bruised, crushed and as sheep brought to slaughter" at the hands of the nations of the world.These descriptions are used throughout Jewish scripture to graphically describe the suffering of the Jewish people (see Psalm 44).
