The OT Identity of Christ

“Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners,” so says the Apostle Paul in I Timothy 1:15. This NT verse indicates that Christ has come, and the OT clearly portrayed Him so we could positively identify Him at His arrival.

Genesis 3:15 called the coming Redeemer “the Seed of the woman.” Genesis 49:10 tells us that He would come through the tribe of Judah, as it would have a perpetual Monarch—“the scepter shall not depart out of Judah.” Numbers 24:17 prophesied that a Star would come out of Jacob. Isaiah 7:14 foretells the virgin birth of Christ, a sign indeed! Micah 5:2 states that the Messiah would be born in the little town of Bethlehem.

Those who believed in the Messiah for their salvation looked for the Christ-child, like Ana and Simeon. But the masses lived apathetically regarding the coming Savior. Jesus is positively the Messiah. Will you believe the evidence? He came to save sinners—like you and like me. Will you believe on Him? Will you reverence Him? Will you love Him and live your life for Him? This Babe in the manger came to save you.
