I have been learning more about scripture and one strange thing that has been very common among Protestant websites and biblical studies is the belief in an intertestamental period.
I haven’t been able to find a defense of this claim. All of the sites that I look up more about this claim simply pronounce it as fact. It would seem fairly strange for the 400 years leading up to the incarnation, God goes silent.
My main problem with this claim is Jesus’s own words from Matthew 11:23:
13*For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John;
If Jesus said the prophecies continued then what really is the 400 years a silence?
