By Prophets Foretold

 

By Prophet Bards Foretold

We have found Him of whom Moses in the law, and also the prophets, wrote — Jesus of Nazareth 
John 1:45

Recommended Reading
John 1:1-14

Every aspect of our Lord’s birth, life, personality, character, ministry, arrest, trial, death, resurrection, and ascension were predicted hundreds  of years in advance. The entire Old Testament is simply a preview of the life of Christ. We’re told He would be born of a woman (Genesis 3:15); to a virgin (Isaiah 7:14); of the seed of Abraham (Genesis 12:3); of the tribe of Judah (Genesis 49:10); through the line of David (Isaiah 9:7); in Bethlehem (Micah 5:2); and that His name would be Immanuel (Isaiah 7:14).

The virgin birth and all the other aspects of our Lord’s life, having been accurately predicted, were wondrously fulfilled, proving His origin and identity. Jesus told His enemies to search the Old Testament Scriptures, for “these are they which testify of Me” (John 5:39).

The same Bible that pinpointed His first coming is brimming with references to His return. Let’s rejoice in His virgin birth today, and await His victorious return.

“For lo! The days are hastening on, by prophet bards foretold, when with the ever circling years comes round the age of gold.”1
