Birth of Jesus Prophecies!

Opening

We need to understand that we have to prove to the world that Jesus is the savior they need! This is the point of Christian Apologetics to make a case for what we believe!

Prophecies almost always have a double meaning, 1 meaning for the present time and the 2nd meaning for a future time and many of those have to do with the coming of the messiah.

The messiah has to meet all the prophecies! This is key because many people even today claim to be the messiah!
