1 The Life of Christ The OT and the story of Israel in order to bring about the birth of the Savior Adam and Eve the seed would come whose heel would be bruised but would crush the head of the serpent The garments created for them depicting the covering and the need of blood sacrifice The picture of the Ark as a type of Christ Abraham and his belief credited to him as righteousness The Abrahamic Cov and the promise of a seed through whom all the nations would be blessed The salvation from Egypt and the Passover Lamb The sacrificial system and the Temple The Law The Davidic Cov of David s seed ruling from Jerusalem The Kings and the Exiles to Assyria and Babylon with all the prophecies about the coming Messiah and the Millenium The revelation of God to humanity throughout every age salvation is: a. Necessary due to sin and the separation of humanity from God b. that grace through faith that salvation is given/received Abraham believed and it was credited to him as R The Greatest Rescue Mission in human history In the darkness the light of Christ is the greatest hope. 400 years of silence and in the fullness of time, Christ was born. Galatians 4:4 5 But when the fullness of the time came, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the Law, 5 so that He might

2 redeem those who were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption as sons. Luke Now He said to them, These are My words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things which are written about Me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled. Acts 17:2 3 And according to Paul s custom, he went to them, and for three Sabbaths reasoned with them from the Scriptures, 3 explaining and giving evidence that the Christ had to suffer and rise again from the dead, and saying, This Jesus whom I am proclaiming to you is the Christ. The Good news of God s Grace and provision of Salvation The four Gospels focus of each and purpose see chart His Identity: Jesus Christ is the unique Son of God who alone is able to Save John 1:17 18 For the Law was given through Moses; grace and truth were realized through Jesus Christ. 18 No one has seen God at any time; the only begotten God who is in the bosom of the Father, He has explained Him. 1) Prophecies OT prophecies about Christ (Josh McD.) Prophecies about: Born of a Virgin Isaiah 7.14 Where he was to be born Micah 5.1ff What He would be called Immanuel Is For how much money He would be betrayed 30 pieces of Silver Zech How He would die crucified Isaiah 53.12

3 Resurrection Psalm Peter Stoner, Science Speaks, Chicago: Moody Press, 1969, 4). If you mark one of ten tickets, and place all the tickets in a hat, and thoroughly stir them, and then ask a blindfolded man to draw one, his chance of getting the right ticket is one in ten. Suppose that we take 10^17 silver dollars and lay them on the face of Texas. They'll cover all of the state two feet deep. Now mark one of these silver dollars and stir the whole mass thoroughly, all over the state. Blindfold a man and tell him that he can travel as far as he wishes, but he must pick up one silver dollar and say that this is the right one. What chance would he have of getting the right one? Just the same chance that the prophets would've had of writing these eight prophecies and having them all come true in any one man, from their day to the present time, providing they wrote them in their own wisdom.

4 2) Magi the Wise Men Matthew 2:1 2 Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, magi from the east arrived in Jerusalem, saying, 2 Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we saw His star in the east and have come to worship Him. From Daniel and his prophecy of the number of days that would occur from the time of the decree of the building of the wall to the time Messiah would enter Jerusalem Daniel 9:25 So you are to know and discern that from the issuing of a decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince there will be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks; it will be built again, with plaza and moat, even in times of distress. The magi upon seeing the Lord: Matthew 2:11 After coming into the house they saw the Child with Mary His mother; and they fell to the ground and worshiped Him. Then, opening their treasures, they presented to Him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. Herod finding out from the scribes the prophesied place of the Lord s birth, Bethlehem, then orders every male child 2 years old and younger to be killed in Bethlehem and it s vicinity prophesied in Jeremiah ) John the Baptist His miraculous birth to Elizabeth and Zacharias - Luke 1.7 tells us they were advanced in years and that Elizabeth was barren

5 Luke 1.17 stated by Gabriel as he shared with Zacharias what his son would be One who would come as a forerunner of the Christ/Messiah in the spirit of Elijah John said of the Lord - Mark 1:7 8 And he was preaching, and saying, After me One is coming who is mightier than I, and I am not fit to stoop down and untie the thong of His sandals. 8 I baptized you with water; but He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit. 4) Virgin Birth/genealogies/announcement Matt and Luke both have genealogies. One from Joseph and the other from Mary The announcement of the angel Gabriel to Mary to be born of a virgin The leaping of John the Baptist within Elizabeth upon Mary s arrival The Angels letting the Shepherds know that a Savior had been born for them in Bethlehem who is Christ the Lord Luke 2.11 Simeon and Anna the pronouncements about who Jesus truly is Luke 2.25 & 36 After Jesus s circumcision they leave Jerusalem and go on to Nazareth, in Galilee, their own home city

6 Luke 2:40 The Child continued to grow and become strong, increasing in wisdom; and the grace of God was upon Him. 5) 12 years old the temple Every year Joseph and Mary would go to Jerusalem in order to celebrate the Passover When Jesus became 12 he went with them They lose Him for 3 days and find Him in the temple Luke 2:46 49 Then, after three days they found Him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the teachers, both listening to them and asking them questions. 47 And all who heard Him were amazed at His understanding and His answers. 48 When they saw Him, they were astonished; and His mother said to Him, Son, why have You treated us this way? Behold, Your father and I have been anxiously looking for You. 49 And He said to them, Why is it that you were looking for Me? Did you not know that I had to be in My Father s house? 6) statements by the Father baptism etc a) Jesus s Baptism Luke 3:21 22 (Matt 3.17; Mark 1.11) Now when all the people were baptized, Jesus was also baptized, and while He was praying, heaven was opened, 22 and the Holy Spirit descended upon Him in bodily form like a dove, and a voice came out of heaven, You are My beloved Son, in You I am wellpleased. b) His transfiguration

7 Matthew 17:5 (Luke 9.35) While he was still speaking, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and behold, a voice out of the cloud said, This is My beloved Son, with whom I am well-pleased; listen to Him! 7) the temptation So misunderstood NOT that Jesus Could have sinned but didn t Rather, as the spotless lamb of God that He has nothing in Him to respond to the Temptor, the Devil, doing everything he could to tempt the Lord Christ is righteous didn t need to BECOME righteous already is Therefore when Satan held up the magnet to tempt Him, there was nothing in the Lord to respond to the magnet, unlike us Proves that He is the only begotten of God, the unique One, who alone could pay for our Sins and Forgive to provide Salvation
