Note to the reader: These next several posts are designed to present a cultural, historical and theological study of Jesus Christ and the facts behind the crucifixion. In yesterday's post we began considering the Old Testament's anticipation and prediction of the coming Messiah revealed in the New Testament. I have chosen to present this material partly in response to the History Channel's recent series: "Bible Secrets Revealed" and partly to give the readers of this blog a chance to see what the Four Gospels truly say about Jesus Christ. This particular series of blogs are more concerned with explaining the contents and validity of the four Gospel accounts. The reader is invited to visit my other blog site to read a critique of the latest episode of "Bible Secrets Revealed" at: http://biblicalexegete.wordpress.com/2013/12/07/p2-critique-of-episode-4-of-bible-secrets-revealed-the-real-jesus/
In today's post we consider lesson #2 and four particular meetings whereby God made promises and predictions to His people in the Old Testament about the promised Messiah. These gradual identifications and predictions prepared the way for what would be Jesus Christ's first coming in the New Testament Gospels.
So what exactly is involved in this plan of salvation?
