And for this hope I am accused by Jews, O king! Galations chap 3 (ESV) 16 Now the promises were made to Abraham and to his offspring. It does not say, And to offsprings, referring to many, but referring to one, And to your offspring, who is Christ. 11

12 Luke chap 24 (ESV) 27 And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself. 44 Then he said to them, These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with you, that everything written about me in the Law of Moses and the Prophetsand the Psalms must be fulfilled. Acts chap 8 (ESV) 35 Then Philip opened his mouth, - and told him the good news of Jesus. 36 And as they went along the road they came to some water, and the eunuch said, "See, here is water!
