"Dual Fulfillment" idea



Does anyone know about the idea of prophecies having a dual fulfillment in the Old Testament? How do we defend that Isaiah 7:14 was actually prophesying ahead to Jesus and not speaking of his own time? Do Bible scholars believe that the Jews believed in dual fulfillment of prophecies? Did the ancient Jews view the Bible in such a fashion?


Fr. William Most was an expert on this, just google his name and multiple fulfillment.
