Find God: Prophecies Fulfilled in the Birth of Jesus

For new insight about the Christmas story, consider reading the new book Prophecies Fulfilled in the Birth of Jesus: by one of our Finding God Daily writers, Dianne E. Butts.

 

As the rush of the Christmas season settles over our lives this year, how are you going to keep Christ at the center of your Christmas? A new look at old, old prophecies might help you find God daily in prophecies fulfilled in the birth of Jesus.

Many prophecies predicted the coming of the Messiah.

The article “Christmas Prophecies” by Dianne E. Butts, lists some examples, including the star the Magi followed to Bethlehem that was predicted by the false prophet-for-hire, Balaam, way back in Numbers 24:17.

Also,  in this article, Butts says:

“According to Isaiah 9:­6-7 and 11:1, the Messiah would be a descendant of King David. This is why genealogies are so important to the Jews and why there are so many recorded in the Bible; they are tracing the bloodline from Abraham to David to Messiah.”

Now her new book Prophecies Fulfilled in the Birth of Jesus expands on the topic. It will take you back in time to discover many of the original prophecies. Some were written hundreds or thousands of years before they were fulfilled. Other prophecies were spoken only months or moments before they were fulfilled. Then you’ll travel forward in time to see these same prophecies fulfilled in the birth of Jesus.

You’ll discover 35 prophecies including the Virgin Birth, the Star, the birthplace of Bethlehem, and the prophecies in the angel’s message to the shepherds guarding the sheep intended for sacrifice at the Temple. You’ll learn what it meant for Mary and Joseph to “present” Jesus to the LORD at the Temple and more.

In every chapter you’ll find:

  • ˜  a “Key Verse” highlighting the prophecy;
  • ˜  where in the Bible the prophecy is found;
  • ˜  who originally wrote it;
  • ˜ when it was written, including the date if possible;
  • ˜  the context the prophecy was written in;
  • ˜  a “Prophecy Fulfilled Bible Reading” to read from your own Bible;
  • ˜  “Apply it to Your Life” questions;
  • ˜  a “Final Thought” and a ˜suggested “Prayer”, with “For more, read” Scripture verses on related topics.

This book works well for individual reading, family discussions or devotions, as well as small group study and book clubs.
