- View SourceIsaiah 720 BC, Psalms 1000 BC, Micah 620 BC......Twenty Prophecies
fulfilled in His First Coming
How do you know it is true??? Buried inside the Ancient Hebrew
writings (Old Testament) written hundreds and some over a thousand
years BC is the foretelling of what would take place when God became
man. This is how you know it is true. The prophecies were very
specific and told exactly when and where God would come to earth.
The New Testament (written in Greek after the death of Christ)
confirms these truths.
He would be born in Bethlehem (Beit Lechem). (Micah 5:2; Matthew 2:4-
6; John 7:42)
The exact time of His crucifixion was known (483 years from the
decree to build the temple, which was around 444 B.C.E.). (Daniel
9:25; Nehemiah 2:1-8; 5:14)
He would be born of a virgin. (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:20-23;
Galatians 4:4; Genesis 3:15)
His name would be Jesus (Yeshua in Hebrew), which means "Savior"
or "Salvation." The word Yeshua in Hebrew means "salvation." It is
derived from another Hebrew word, Yashah, which means "to save,
deliver, preserve, bring salvation, get victory." (Matthew 1:21)
He would be the Son of G-d and G-d would be His Father.
