Jesus’ Birth Fulfilled Many Prophecies
How do we know that Jesus was the Messiah?
What does Messiah even mean?
A Very Brief History Lesson
God promised to send us a Savior (a Messiah) when Adam and Eve sinned in the Garden at the very beginning of time. This Savior would save us from sin and destroy Satan and his evil ways.
God established His people (called the Israelites) through Abraham and David’s line, and we can see this promise reiterated all throughout the Old Testament.
As we read the Israelite’s history in the Old Testament, we can see God’s continued promise of a Savior. The Jewish people waited for a long time for this promised Savior. There were many prophecies in the Old Testament about this promised Messiah.
Then, finally, Jesus was born. And all these promises, or prophecies, were fulfilled.
