Prophecies of Christ from the Old Testment

Some documents have been released lately stating that Jesus Christ is not the messiah.  The last one I read called "Smokin' Gun" was the worst.  I have never seen the Bible so misquoted, so grotesquely out of context.  Give me a break!

This following list is a compilation of *some* of the Messianic Prophesies (prophesies concerning who the Messiah would be) in the Old Testament.

When you read these verses, *please* read them in context. That means:  consider the text around the verse you are looking up, or even the whole chapter.  If your really ambitious read the entire book.  By doing this you will better understand what is being conveyed by the writer.

There are a couple of basic things you need to remember when reading the Bible.  They are as follows:

1.  The Bible was not written in English originally.  (Yes it's hard to believe, but Jesus never said the words "Thee", or "Thou" or "Thy"!)  The original documents were written, primarily, in Hebrew and Greek.  That means what we have to read is only a translation.  Since (I think I can safely assume) man is not perfect, the translations will also be a step away from perfect.  Most churches will hold to the fact that the original text was *God inspired*  but the Bible we have today may contain some errors.  (God inspired means: God told the writer what to write, and ensured that the information was recorded properly and without flaw.)  You may ask yourself, "How do I know if what I am reading is correct?"  That's easy.  Don't read one translation.  Read two or three.  Different wording of the same information will help narrow down exactly what the writer intended you to hear.  Most of all read **in context**!!!!!

2.  Try to read translation that come from the original text.  Many translations of the Bible are simply paraphrases of another English version.  A translation, of a translation can cause some problems.  It kind of like copying cassette tapes.  The first copy doesn't sound so bad, but make a copy of the copy and it gets a little distorted.  Keep making copies of copies and eventually you won't even be able to make out what was on the original tape.  By using translation that are compiled from the original languages you will ensure that you are getting the best information. Not distorted by the multiple copies.  Which version come from the original text?  Well the big boys (most used translations) are:  King James Version (KJV),                     Revised Standard Version (RSV)                     New International Version (NIV) There are many other as well.  Again I emphasize reading more than one translation.  If you have a paraphrase, like the Living Bible that's OK.  Those Bibles can really help the novice to understand some of the more difficult language. But be sure to read something closer to the original stuff too.

Lastly, this document was not written to cause anyone doubt in what is recorded in there favorite version of the Bible. Most of the mistakes, or error I am speaking of are over Greek, or Hebrew words that are difficult to understand, or so seldom used in the Bible that it is difficult (even for the people who understand Greek and Hebrew) understand what the word means.  These vague words are never found in information that is important to salvation.  They are generally in areas that are less important.  If you want to be saved believe this !!!***and only this***!!!  "God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not parish but have everlasting life.  For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved."  John 3:16-17  If you believe that you are headed for heaven!   The rest of the stuff is just showing us how much God loves us, and how we can better serve Him because He loves us.

See you in heaven if not before,

your friend in Christ,
