Jesus Is Our Messiah.

“The first thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon and tell him, ‘We have found the Messiah’ (that is, the Christ).” – John 1:41

The Old Testament Scriptures promised the coming of the Messiah, Who would stone for the sins of mankind. The prophets specifically stated that He would die a cruel death. “Then after the sixty-two weeks, the Messiah will be cut off and have nothing, and the people of the prince who is to come will destroy the city and the sanctuary.” (Daniel 9:26a) 

The bloodline of the Messiah was clearly foretold, and Jesus is the clear fulfillment. “Does not Scripture say that the Messiah will come from David’s descendants and from Bethlehem, the town where David lived?” (John 6:42)

We must have faith in Him, like people long ago. “The woman said, ‘I know that Messiah (called Christ) is coming. When He comes, He will explain everything to us.’ ” (John 4:25) “Then times of refreshment will come from the presence of the Lord, and He will again send you Jesus, your appointed Messiah.” (Acts 3:20)

Jesus is clearly the Messiah Who came to die as the ultimate sacrifice for our sins. “He told them, ‘This is what is written: The Messiah will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day.’ ” (Luke 24:46)
