Were Old Testament predictions fulfilled in the life of Jesus? If so, why, when we read these prophecies in their original setting, do they often seem more obscure than we might have expected?
Is it possible that skeptics of biblical prophecy are right? Could there be validity to their claim that Christians read Jesus back into the Old Testament? Or is there a legitimate way of showing that He really is there?
I hope that by the time you have read this booklet you will realize that messianic prophecy is not easy to understand, but it is legitimately fulfilled in Jesus Christ—contrary to the arguments of skeptics.
