Four distinct Old Testament Messianic prophecies were fulfilled by Christ's death and cited by the Apostle John.
Films try to depict the suffering and death of Jesus Christ, but have all fallen short of presenting the full dimensions of the event—the price of our sin.
Peter warns that prophecy is not 'of any private interpretation,' yet speculation runs rampant. Misguided speculation even led to Christ's betrayal and death!
God wants us to recognize prophecies as they occur or shortly afterward. To cling to an interpretation before the events happen leads to missing vital details.
Jesus perfectly fulfilled the Old Testament types, slain as the Passover Lamb, resurrected with the cutting of the wavesheaf, and ascended to His Father at the time of the waving of the sheaf.
The apostle John has provided at least eight separate forms of witness, establishing the veracity of Jesus Christ's identity as God in the flesh.
The necessity for Christ's death stems from God's holiness and absolute intolerance of sin and His obligation to judge righteously.
God is a God of mercy, but He has a stiff core of justice which will not be placated unless we repent. To whom much has been given, much will be required.
Christ's life and death were supernatural in that He had God's Spirit from the beginning, giving Him power over things, as well as undeniable logic.

Why do the many churches disagree about what the Bible says? Have you ever proved whether it is the authoritative Word of the Creator God?
