This is another video in our series “Great Thinkers & Great Questions”, where we examine and comment on articles in the Apologetics Study Bible. Here we will be taking a short look at what is called Messianic Prophecy, in which well over 100 predictions in the ancient document of the Old Testament Scriptures, predict a specific individual that will come onto the scene.
Among dozens of other specific predictions, his place of birth, type of death, place of burial, and the price payed to betray him are all predicted with amazing accuracy, in documents that were written centuries before. Only one man in history has fulfilled these specific predictions, Jesus of Nazareth.
There are 2 very powerful aspects of this evidence:
- It is verifiable historically through the ancient documents that we still possess today in museums, and through the historical facts we know about the man Jesus of Nazareth.
- Since predicting future events cannot possibly happen with a naturalistic explanation, and therefore necessitates a supernatural explanation. It is a powerful and intriguing proof of the supernatural working behind these documents, though they were recorded by men.
If these claims seem outlandish to anyone, all one has to do is investigate the documents and the historical evidence for themselves to see if it actually happened. All of the predictions mentioned in this video were recorded over 400 years before the man Jesus of Nazareth ever lived.
