The Bible
The Bible is a collection of writings authored by 40 men over a period of 1,500 years. The writings are roughly separated into the Old Testament (written before the birth of Jesus) and the New Testament (written by the disciples of Jesus after his death in 33 A.D.). The writings of both Testaments are cantered around a person called “Messiah” (which means “anointed by God”).

The Old Testament says the Messiah would come as the Saviour of the world. The New Testament says the Messiah came in the person of Jesus of Nazareth.
Both the Old and New Testaments claim that the Messiah would be both man and God – the God-Man – who would save us from our sins. So, if Jesus really were the Messiah, we would expect Him to be God in human form. Our first task is to determine if Jesus was the Messiah.
Man was created in the image of God; he is a stakeholder in His master plan. God created man to resemble Him in everything He stands for and be like Him in all respects. This is because He wanted His energy to be poured out through man and He wanted His wisdom to be demonstrated in man; to feel and see what He feels and sees.
In Luke 19:10, Christ came to restore the relationship between God and man because there is no reality outside of Him (John 14:6) and no one can reach God except through Him. While paying the price of the situation, Christ was sent to re-establish the wholeness and completeness of the relationship. Quoting Isaiah 9:6, he said Jesus is God’s Son whose birth had been prophesied by Isaiah and that He symbolizes three major developments:
1. He is a glorious light to dispel darkness in our life.
2. A glorious increase and complete joy and
3. A glorious liberty and enlargement with good reason. Through Him, all flesh shall see the salvation of God. Christmas is a time to give, show love, and it is a period for sober reflection.
The Gospel is meant to dispel the yoke of sin, and the right knowledge of God settles peace. He added that we need to forgive because we also need to be forgiven. Forgiveness means that God looks at us as if we have never sinned. Referring to Matthew 5:44, he said we should love our enemies and pray for those who persecute us. Christianity, he added, is not a religion but relationship. God loves strangers, widows, orphans and the needy. Love was born at Christmas.

Love is patient, good and humble and we should be known by our love; we should act love, follow in the light of love and let love lead, he concluded
There are over 100 prophecies in the Old Testament that gave the characteristics of the Messiah, written hundreds of years before the arrival of Jesus. These prophecies describe the circumstances of His birth, ministry, and death. A sample list of these prophecies are included in the table below:

A complete list of prophecies fulfilled by Jesus of Nazareth can be found at Prophecies of Jesus Christ as Messiah. Although some of the prophecies are general, many, especially those surrounding his birth and death (over which he had no control), are quite striking. The Old Testament describes his death by being pierced through his hands and feet – at a time before crucifixion was even invented! Jesus of Nazareth is the only person in history who fulfilled the Old Testament prophecies for the Messiah in amazing detail.

Since the Old Testament described the Messiah as having the characteristics of God, this would make Jesus to be God in human form. Prophecies of Jesus Christ as Messiah – Biblical evidence that Jesus was the promised Messiah Nothing Unique About the Teachings of Jesus Christ? – The amazing teachings of Jesus suggest that He is God .Although the LORD sent prophets to the people to bring them back to him, and though they testified against them, they would not listen. (2 Chronicles 24:19)
The anger of the LORD burned against Amaziah, and he sent a prophet to him, who said, “Why do you consult this people’s gods, which could not save their own people from your hand?”(2 Chronicles 25:15)”Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” (Jeremiah 1:5)And though the LORD has sent all his servants the prophets to you again and again, you have not listened or paid any attention.

(Jeremiah 25:4)
and if you do not listen to the words of my servants the prophets, whom I have sent to you again and again (though you have not listened), (Jeremiah 26:5)But the prophet who prophesies peace will be recognized as one truly sent by the LORD only if his prediction comes true.” (Jeremiah 28:9)
For they have not listened to my words,” declares the LORD, “words that I sent to them again and again by my servants the prophets. And you exiles have not listened either,” declares the LORD. (Jeremiah 29:19)Again and again I sent all my servants the prophets to you. They said, “Each of you must turn from your wicked ways and reform your actions; do not follow other gods to serve them. Then you will live in the land I have given to you and your fathers.” But you have not paid attention or listened to me. (Jeremiah 35:15)
Again and again I sent my servants the prophets, who said, ‘Do not do this detestable thing that I hate!’ (Jeremiah 44:4)nor have we obeyed the voice of the LORD our God, to walk in His teachings which He set before us through His servants the prophets.

And the people feared the LORD. (Haggai 1:12)
They made their hearts as hard as flint and would not listen to the law or to the words that the LORD Almighty had sent by his Spirit through the earlier prophets. So the LORD Almighty was very angry. (Zechariah 7:12)”See, I will send you the prophet Elijah before that great and dreadful day of the LORD comes. (Malachi 4:5)
God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I AM has sent me to you.'” (Exodus 3:14)

(Matthew 25:31-33)
“And as for you, My flock, thus says the Lord GOD, ‘Behold, I will judge between one sheep and another, between the rams and the male goats. (Ezekiel 34:17)
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me shall live even if he dies, and everyone who lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?” (John 11:25-26)

“And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that of all that He has given Me I lose nothing, but raise it up on the last day. “For this is the will of My Father, that everyone who beholds the Son and believes in Him, may have eternal life; and I Myself will raise him up on the last day.” (John 6:39-40)
“No one can come to Me, unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up on the last day. (John 6:44)”He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day. (John 6:54)
And Jesus seeing their faith said to the paralytic, “My son, your sins are forgiven.” (Mark 2:5)”Why does this man speak that way? He is blaspheming; who can forgive sins but God alone?” (Mark 2:7)
and then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the SON OF MAN COMING ON THE CLOUDS OF THE SKY with power and great glory. (Matthew 24:30)
BEHOLD, HE IS COMING WITH THE CLOUDS, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him; and all the tribes of the earth will mourn over Him. Even so. Amen. (Revelation 1:7)
Then the glory of the LORD will be revealed, And all flesh will see it together; For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.” (Isaiah 40:5)
Again therefore Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world; he who follows Me shall not walk in the darkness, but shall have the light of life.” (John 8:12)
(A Psalm of David.) The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The LORD is the defence of my life; Whom shall I dread? (Psalm 27:1)
When the chief priests had met with the elders and devised a plan, they gave the soldiers a large sum of money, telling them, “You are to say, ‘His disciples came during the night and stole him away while we were asleep.’ If this report gets to the governor, we will satisfy him and keep you out of trouble.” So the soldiers took the money and did as they were instructed. And this story has been widely circulated among the Jews to this very day. (Matthew 28:12-15)
“For the Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath.” (Matthew 12:8)”Consequently, the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath.” (Mark 2:28)And He was saying to them, “The Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath.” (Luke 6:5)Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made. (Genesis 2:3)”But in order that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins”–hen He said to the paralytic-“Rise, take up your bed, and go home.”(Matthew 9:6)
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.. The same was in the beginning with God.. All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made.. In him was life; and the life was the light of men.. And the light shineth in darkness;and the darkness comprehended it not.
(John 1.1-5)Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them.
And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted.. And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.
When Moses talked to God at the burning bush, he asked Him His name. God replied merely, “I am that I am,” referring to His self-existence, the Being of beings, eternal and unchangeable.
