Even angels long to look into these things John 1, verse 41: that Andrew “found his . . . brother Simon and said to him, 'We have found the Messiah' (which means Christ).” Messiah. Christ. This is what the Jews were expecting. the Samaritan woman at the well John 4 25The woman said, “I know that Messiah” (called Christ) “is coming. When he comes, he will explain everything to us.” 26Then Jesus declared, “I, the one speaking to you—I am he.” Jesus to his disciples Matthew 16 15“But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?” 16Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” 17Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven To the high priest Mark 14 61…Again the high priest asked him, “Are you the Messiah, the Son of the Blessed One?” 62“I am,” said Jesus. “And you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Mighty One and coming on the clouds of heaven.” 63The high priest tore his clothes. “Why do we need any more witnesses?” he asked. 64“You have heard the blasphemy.

Even angels long to look into these things New Testament Preaching “Saul . . . confounded the Jews who lived in Damascus by proving that Jesus was the Christ” (Acts 9:22) Acts 18 (28) you read about Apollos who “powerfully refuted the Jews in public, showing by the Scriptures [And what Scriptures would those have been? The Old Testament] that the Christ was Jesus” (v. 28). The Ethiopian Eunuch God’s anointed one—is a core tenet of our Christian faith. Our faith is based on fact not fiction Court of law—the evidence is overwhelming Professor Peter Stoner used the mathematical principle called the Law of Compound Probability , to assess some of the prophecies relating to Christ. He used it to calculate the odds against a chance; fulfillment of such predictions when compounded by a specific set of conditions, requirements, or qualifications. His findings were carefully evaluated by the American Scientific Affiliation, and were found to be sound and convincing . By this method, he was able to show evidence that would rule out coincidence, chance or human manipulation in the fulfillment of biblical prophecy. Chance fulfillment of biblical prophecy Stoner started by calculating the probability of 1 individual who could precisely fulfill only 8 prophecies relating to Christ. He computed the odds at 1 in 10 17 . That’s 1 chance in 100,000,000,000,000,000 opportunities. This is like covering the entire state of Texas 2 feet deep in silver dollars, marking 1 of them, and telling a blind man to pick the marked silver dollar on the 1st try. That’s 8 prophecies fact not fiction Stoner then computed the odds of 1 individual that could fulfill just 48 prophecies relating to Christ. He calculated the odds at 1 X 10 157 . Those odds are beyond human comprehension. But we know Jesus Christ fulfilled 332 distinct prophecies! God’s Word is true. God has gone great lengths to give us "many convincing truths”  Court of law—the evidence is overwhelming WHY IS JESUS REJECTED TODAY?? Jesus does not fit in there box.---Puppet Messiah –genie Threat to their power Many prefer a lie to the truth For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear 2 Tim 4:3 (NIV) God keeps His promises! Now He doesn’t always do it in the way or the time that we would expect. John 20 30Jesus performed
