“He was foreknown before the foundation of the world but was made manifest in the last times for the sake of you.” —1 Peter 1:20 (ESV)
Here are 5 of more than 300 prophecies fulfilled ages later through Christ:
1. Jesus was born in Bethlehem.
2. Jesus was born of a virgin.
3. Jesus was rejected by His people.
4. Jesus suffered with (and for) sinners
5. Jesus performed miracles.
The death and resurrection of Jesus are the central events of the Christian faith. The miraculous resurrection gave assurance to Jesus’ disciples, and to Christians of all times, that Jesus really is the Son of God. It verified His prophesies (Matthew 16:21, Luke 18:31-33) and gave authority to His teachings.
Jesus defeated the power of sin and death. If God could raise Jesus from the dead, then we, too, have reason to hope that we will be raised to live eternally in God’s presence.Happy Easter everyone and don’t forget to bless someone this season.
