As Christians, we believe some incredible things. One of the most incredible is that Jesus Christ is God in the flesh. We believe that Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man. We believe a Jewish man born 2000 years ago who probably stood about 5’6” most likely with black hair and a black beard, olive skin, who worked as a carpenter is also God. That he’s the one who created the universe and holds the atoms together by the power of his word. That’s a pretty stunning thing to believe about a man. Islam and Judaism vehemently, violently reject this idea about Jesus. Jehovah Witnesses and Mormons reject this idea about Jesus. In fact, the vast majority of humanity for the passed 2000 years rejects this idea about Jesus. Are we crazy for believing a man is God? We would be if there wasn’t good evidence for the truth of this claim; there are several lines of evidence that support Jesus’ claim to be God.
One thousand years before Jesus, God revealed three specific facts about the coming Messiah. The only person in all of human history to fulfill this prophecy is Jesus Christ. In this study I hope to encourage you that our faith in Jesus is based on powerful evidence. I also hope to encourage greater confidence sharing with unbelievers why you are trusting Jesus as your Savior. Psalm 110 is the Psalm most often quoted in the New Testament. It was written by King David. The Holy Spirit guided David; David predicted things he could not have known nor would have come to his mind.
