God inspired His prophets—hundreds of years ahead of time—to predict details of the coming of Messiah, the Savior:
- The manner of Messiah’s birth—of a Virgin
- The location of Messiah’s birth—Bethlehem in
- The ancestry of Messiah’s birth—A descendent of Abraham and David
- The nature of Messiah’s birth—both human and divine
Accurate predictions about Messiah’s coming and birth support the claim that the Bible is a miraculous, God-inspired book!
“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6 (NIV)
“But when the time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under law, to redeem those under law, that we might receive the full rights of sons.” Galatians 4:4-5 (NIV)
