But what God foretold by the mouth of all the prophets, that his Christ would suffer, he thus fulfilled (Acts 3:18). Could it be that Jesus is just one of many throughout history who could have coincidentally fit the prophetic fingerprint?
I will send my messenger, who will prepare the way before me (Mal. 3:1). If the Old Testament prophecies are so obvious and point so unquestionably toward Jesus, why don’t more people of the Jewish faith accept him as their Messiah?
Jesus was the prophesied Messiah, but he also rewarded the faith of those who were not members of God's original "chosen people."
