“Accidental” Prophecy

John records that God providentially had the high priest speak a prophecy about the death of Jesus.  This was a duty and function of the high priest’s office but this man did it ignorantly.

The Star

I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth. – Numbers 24:17
