    The Messiah of the Old Testament was no Prince of Peace. He was expected to come with sword and fire and raze the old kingdoms to the ground. There were four signs by which he would be known. Jesus of Nazareth fulfilled only one of the signs. That was more than a dozen other would-be Messiahs could boast. Until A.D. 2047, when a grifter named Jeremiah the B fulfills them all and puts the world in more jeopardy than it’s been in since the comet hit, 65 million years ago!
