The prophet Daniel successfully told us, before the events happened, about the rise of the Medo-Persian empire, as well as the Greek and Roman empires. He also spoke in regards to the events of the Syrian's and Egyptian's during the Roman conquest over the Greeks.
In Daniel chapter 9 verse 26, he also prophesied that the Jewish Messiah would come and die before Jerusalem and the temple were destroyed in 70 C.E.
Either Daniel was a false prophet or the Jewish Messiah had to come before the Roman's destroyed the temple.
Only one person could fulfill this prophesy and many more, Yeshua (Jesus).
