Jesus and Christmas
When I was younger I remember someone asking me if Jesus / Messiah was ever mentioned in the Old Testament. To be honest I fumbled through the question and probably gave a poor response. The reality is Jesus is prophesied (predicted) countless times through the Old Testament.
As we head into Christmas I think it would be good to highlight just a few of these to encourage you and empower you during this season when perhaps ears are open to such discussions.
Read the scriptures associated with these prophesies by simply clicking on the links.
Prophesy: The Messiah would be Resurrected
Old Testament Reference: Psalm 16: 8 – 11
New Testament Reference: Acts 2:22 – 32
Now as we head into the Christmas Season...
Prophesy: The Messiah would be born in Bethlehem
Old Testament Reference: Micah 5:2
New Testament Reference: Matthew 2: 1 – 6
Prophesy: The Messiah would be a descendant of David
Old Testament Reference: 2 Samuel 7: 12 – 16
New Testament Reference: Matthew 1: 1, Luke 1: 32 – 33, Acts 15: 15 – 16, Hebrews 1:5
Prophesy: The Messiah would be called out of Egypt

These are just a few but if your looking for more Jews for Jesus is an excellent place for Bible Prophesy.
