Guess they must have missed that passage in Isaiah 7:14 and 9:6.

Yes, they did miss it. And I suspect that, had we lived in 1st century Palestine, we would have missed it, too. We can thank God that we live 2000 years later when so much of what is understood about Jesus is settled.

Perhaps we ought to ask God what part of his message that we—being sinners like the Pharisees—are missing today.

Keep in mind it wasn’t called “Palestine” until Rome renamed it after the Jewish revolt in 135 A.D. — more than 100 years after Jesus.

They renamed it “Syria-Palestini” (sp).

You are correct, the Romans did rename the land. Nonetheless my point remains the same:

Yes, they did miss it. And I suspect that, had we lived in 1st century Jerusalem, we would have missed it, too. We can thank God that we live 2000 years later when so much of what is understood about Jesus is settled.

Perhaps we ought to ask God what part of his message that we—being sinners like the Pharisees—are missing today.
