All of human history has been leading up to the coming of the Messiah. However, not only does the historical record lead us to the Messiah birth, so do hundreds of prophecies in God’s Word. Through the prophets God spoke to Israel and the world. The message was a constant call to repentance accompanied by information on how to identify the Messiah when he arrived. This week we are going to look back at just a few of the Old Testament prophecies that point to Christ.
Every one of these promises was made more than 400-years before the Bethlehem birth and some of them go all the way back to the fall into sin. No matter their age, all of them are laser-focused on the coming Messiah.
If you didn’t get to see the final videos of “Stuff they didn’t teach me in Sunday school” for the Old Testament, it is highly recommended that you take a look at them. They are a great resource to understanding the world into which Jesus was born.
