Jesus Of Nazareth, The Messiah Or Christ
Daniel D. Rupwate
The writer of this book attempts to prove that Jesus of Nazareth was the Messiah or Christ at his birth, on Palm Sunday, and on Easter Sunday. The Old Testament prophecies that Jesus Christ was to be born of a virgin in Bethlehem and that he would be taken to Egypt by his parent for few years were fulfilled. There were some prophecies about his ministry, that he would preach the gospel to the poor and neglected, heal all sorts of diseases, use parables in his preaching, enlighten some and would offend some, etc. all these prophecies were fulfilled.The prophecy about his royal welcome on a colt in Jerusalem, the prophecy about his death and resurrection, such as he would be ill-treated by Jewish religious authorities and rulers of the land, he would be crucified, the people would be saved by his vicarious sufferings and that he would be ill-treated by Jewish religious authorities and rulers of the land, such as he would be resurrected on the third day were all fulfilled. In short, all were fulfilled. Therefore, Jesus of Nazareth was undoubtedly the anticipated Messiah or Christ.
