December 24, 2022 • Line of Witnesses

Some of you have probably sat on a jury before, and the rest of us have seen enough ‘law and order’ type shows that we have a good understanding of what it means. In a trial, a line of witnesses come forward to testify that something is true. The jury listens to the evidence and makes a decision.

IN A WAY, the Bible does that with Jesus.

It likes like you are on the jury, and the Bible is presenting a long line of witnesses to prove to you that Jesus is the Christ, the long-awaited Messiah of the Old Testament times. Throughout the Old Testament times, 4,000 years of history, God kept the promise alive that He would send a Savior who would crush Satan’s head and bless the entire world. That Savior, that Messiah, is Jesus! The New Testament word for Messiah is the word “Christ”.

The Bible presents a long line of witnesses to show you and to testify to you that Jesus is the Messiah, the Christ. Today, think of yourself in a jury box, and let’s take a look at some of the witnesses that prove that Jesus is the Messiah, the Savior sent by God!

The biblical evidence is overwhelming:
Jesus is the Christ;
the promised savior of the world!

Advent is a time when we once again get to hear the testimony that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God! It’s like you were sitting in a “jury box”, and you have all these witnesses telling you the same thing: Jesus is the Christ! Today listen to the witnesses, and believe! Amen!
