Does the Old Testament prophecy the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ?  Blaise Pascal, inventor of the probability calculus and therefore an expert judge of odds, considered prophecy a very strong argument for the truth of Christianity.  (He did not simply tell people to gamble on God because the payback is better if you're right, as he is often represented by critics who have not read Pensees for themselves.) 

But it is often claimed that in fact, the Gospel writers, Matthew being most guilty, projected prophecies of Christ onto the ancients.  Isaiah was taken out of context.  He didn't really mean to say anything about a coming Messiah.  He had something (Israel?) or someone (Jeremiah?) else in mind, when he wrote those great and mysterious passages about the "Suffering Servant" (Isaiah 52-53).
