SERIES: SEEKING A SAVIOR
Part 1 | The Hope Given By The Prophets
The Law, Prophets and Wisdom Poetry we call the Old Testament was very well known by most Jewish people for hundreds of years before Jesus' birth. They were very aware of the prophecies that appear through-out the scriptures that speak of One who will come, who would be a deliverer greater than Moses and a king greater than David. His name would be Immanuel (God with us). Imagine Joseph's surprise when the Angel of the Lord told him that Mary's pregnancy would fulfill the beloved prophecy of Isaiah.
