Matthew 2:12

Biblical Prophecy
 
Prophecy is so important that it is mention six times in the first three chapters of Matthew as conclusive evidence that Jesus indeed was the Messiah.
 
Herod, as wicked as he was, understood how accurate the Biblical Prophets were when he was trying to get to the bottom of the wise men's tale.
 
Although Herod had no regard for the Old Testament prophets, he certainly had respect for what they said--so much so that he slaughtered  every boy chlid, two years old and under, in the area the prophets said the Messiah would be born.
 
Now there is a Lutheran theologian who has published a book in which she claims the Biblical Prophets did not foretell the future--I believe Herod would debate her on that and be willing to put his money where his mouth is.

Mary
The Perpetual Virgin
 
Why Do The Egyptian Minority Texts Delete The Word
"First Born" from Matthew 1:25?
 
The answer is simple
It perpetuates the idea
that Mary was a perpetual virgin
 
 
Which she was not
 
After the birth of Jesus
she gave birth to
James, Joses, Simon and Salome 

Matthew 2:3
 
I understand why Herod would be troubled at the news that the Messiah had been born--but why all Jerusalem with him?
 
Isaiah 66:15-16 give us a clue.
 
It was quite clear that when the Messiah came, he was coming with an army and he was going to start a war (more correctly--finish one).
 
The Jerusalem hierarchy was happy, at the moment, with the status quo.
 
Messiah Would Have Rocked Their Boat
 
Has He Rocked Your Boat?
 
If Not--Maybe It's Time For A Check-Up

Jesus Is YHWH
 
Matthew 3:3 when compared to Isaiah (where the quote came from) says so.
 
John prepared the way for YHWH!
 
Matthew 1:23 says so. Who is with us?
 
The God
 
Did Jesus become Christ?
 
No
He was Born Christ
Matthew 2:4
Luke 2:26

Be careful what you eat...
