Did the Jews Kill the Prophets?

Recently I was approached by a Christian gentleman who wanted to warn me of the signs of the times and to express that his eschatological perspective required me to embrace Jesus before he descends from the eastern sky with great wrath. He explained to me his ideas concerning current world events and how they allegedly fit in with end-time prophecy. At a point in the conversation I began to explain why I do not give credence to newspaper prophesy and why I do not accept Jesus as being anything of notable consequence. Predictably the man’s response was to resort to a tired old cliché:
Jews killed all the prophets that were sent by God! You are deaf and blind to the truth!”
