I've been told they contain prophecies about Jesus and I've been told that no, they don't. I myself have read them and have seen a few passages that MIGHT be foretelling of the Messiah but I'm not sure.

If they exist chapter and verse please. I'm having a go-round with a friendly Protestant.

Yeah Nate pointed out the best prophecy about the future Messiah mentioned in Wisdom the majority of the dueteros are either historical or wisdome based books not prophetic.
Many of the books in the OT are these types of books and this is faulty way to determine scripture. Certainly books like Job and Esther would fail this criterion.
