Fulfiiled prophecies from the Old Testament proving Jesus Christ is the promised Messiah.

11 March 2014, 12:34

I often read comments from the 'N24 atheist junior science club' commenting on N24 that Jesus Christ didn't fulfill any Messianic prophecies...some even deny that He existed!

So I felt compelled to set the record straight once and for all about Jesus being the promised Messiah  of the Old Testament.

From the tribe of Judah. (Gen 49:10/Luke 3:33)

 Born in Bethlehem. (Micah 5:2/Luke 2:4)

 Time for His birth. (Dan 9:25/Luke 2:1,2)

 To be born of a virgin. (Is 7:14/Luke 1:26,27,30,31)

 Flight to Egypt. (Hos 11:1/Matt 2:14,15)

 Galilean ministry. (Is 9:1,2/Matt 4:13-16)

 Rejected by His own people, the Jews. (Is 53:3/John 1:11, Luke 23:18)

 Betrayed by a friend. (Ps 41:9/Luke 22:47,48)

 Sold for 30 pieces of silver. (Zech 11:12/Matt 26:15)

 Spat upon and smitten. (Is 50:6/Matt 26:67)

 Crucified with malefactors. (Is 53:12/Mark 15:27)

 Pierced through hands and feet. (Zech 12:10/John 20:27)

 Given vinegar and gall on the cross (Ps 69:21/Matt 27:34)

 Soldiers gambled for His coat. (Ps 22:17,18/Matt 27:35,36)

 No bones broken. (Ps 34:20/John 19:32,33,36)

 His side pierced. (Zech 12:10/John 19:34)

 Buried with the rich. (Is 53:9/Matt 27:57-60)

Strategic Disruption

There is, for some reason, an attraction to falling in line, following the rules, and playing this business game by the books. If you want to be an agent for change within the company, and let them know that you are not just a minion, be disruptive. Read more...
