Matthew 15 l.jpg
Matthew 1

Matthew 111 l.jpg
Matthew 1

  • If God could record detailed predictions of the future, even hundreds of year distant, that would prove such a text is supernatural

  • A written text…


Matthew 112 l.jpg
Matthew 1

  • Yeah, but couldn’t these predictions be coincidence?

  • Couldn’t Jesus deliberately fake the fulfillment of predictions he already knew?

  • Tonight, one case out of more than a hundred: The genealogy of Christ
