Prophets Foretold Him: Predictions About Jesus Christ in the Scripture
By: Timothy Cross

The life and ministry of the Lord Jesus did not occur in a vacuum – Prophets Foretold Him. Jesus said of Himself that “The Son of Man goes as it is written of Him…” (Matthew 26:24). With our New Testament hindsight, therefore, it is possible to construct the life of Christ from Scriptures written many centuries before He lived and ministered here on earth. In this book, we do just that. Amazingly, here is the life of Christ – BC.

This volume considers some of the many prophecies Almighty God revealed beforehand concerning His Son. It identifies their amazing, detailed and, humanly speaking, inexplicable fulfilment in the fullness of time. Fulfilled prophecy is one of the many evidences that the Bible is no ordinary book but the very Word of the living God. Only the eternal God knows the future, and thus only the eternal God can truly reveal the future.

Be prepared to be amazed! Here is a book to increase your wonder at the inspired Word of God. And here is a book to fuel your devotion to the One of Whom all Scripture speaks: the Lord Jesus Christ. The inspired Word and the incarnate Word cannot be separated.

Many of us, I’m sure, have been faced with the challenge of: ‘Prove to me the Bible is true’. Or with a similar question: ‘How do you know the Bible is the Word of God?’

What would be our response to such questions? One answer we could all give is – ‘Prophecy; the Bible is a book of prophecy’. And which prophecies would we then turn them to? If you don’t now, this is the book for you!

It has been stated that there are over 300 prophecies alone relating to the person of Jesus Christ in the Old Testament. This should excite and interest every Christian. The prophetic nature of the Bible is first demonstrated in this book by attention being drawn to Isaiah’s prophecies surrounding the birth of Christ. We are then taken to Micah, where the place of Christ’s birth is prophesied. The book then goes on to events surrounding Christ’s first coming and his ministry. It covers the coming of John the Baptist, the anointing of the Holy Spirit, the miracles of Christ, his riding into Jerusalem and his betrayal by Judas. This is followed by an examination of his death, resurrection and ascension into heaven. Finally, we take a look at prophecies still yet to be fulfilled – the return of Jesus Christ. A solemn warning is included for those who die without knowing the Saviour. We are reminded that, ‘sin against an eternal God has eternal consequences’/

This is a helpful little book, consisting of twenty short chapters of a couple of pages each. It is a good place to start for deeper study of the prophetic nature of Scripture.

The very fact that God’s Word contains so much prophecy is an indicator in itself of its importance, and so should interest all believers. (Evangelical Times).
