If Jesus of Nazareth fulfilled all the prophecies of the Old Testament concerning Messiah’s First Advent – and He did (as Paul declared and demonstrated to the Jews in the synagogue in Thessalonica in Acts 17:1-3) – then four great truths of the Christian Religion necessarily follow:
- There is a Great God – for who but He can forecast the future?
- This Great God is Lord of History – for who but He can set such a marvelous plan into motion, carry it out across the wide centuries in the face of mounting human and Satanic opposition, and bring it all to pass in due season?
- This Lord of History inspired the writers of Holy Scripture – for who but He could pour such brilliance into their spirits?
- Jesus of Nazareth is the Promised Messiah – for who but He could even begin to answer to the amazing array of all these ancient announcements?
