Is there evidence for believing that Jesus is really God’s son – the Messiah? Absolutely! In 1947, the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered near the Dead Sea in Israel. The scrolls include the entire Old Testament except for the book of Esther. In fact, the discovery proves that our present-day Old Testament is virtually identical to the scrolls.
Transcribed up to 200 years before Jesus Christ walked this earth, the scrolls contain the same Old Testament prophecies that foretell the coming of Christ the Messiah, God’s son. Historical evidence shows that ancient Jewish Rabbis taught that the Old Testament Scriptures prophetically described the future Messiah.
For example, Isaiah 52-53 describe a man who was afflicted, pierced, wounded, killed with criminals as a sacrifice for souls, and placed in a rich man’s tomb.
“…the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him and by His wounds we are healed.” Isaiah 53:5
There are many Old Testament Scriptures written well before the time of Jesus Christ that describe his coming in detail, his life with accuracy and his death with precision.
So join us as we celebrate this blessed Easter weekend, knowing with confidence, that all objections to the deity of Christ have been overruled!
“According to His great mercy, He has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.” 1 Peter 1:3
