Advent

Hello and welcome to our Advent page, I have placed this page as a placeholder in case you wished to review any of the articles that we did between December 1st and December 24th 2014.

The purpose of the “Advent series” is to showcase prophecies that show that the historical character known as Jesus of Nazareth (Christ) is the messiah that was promised to the Jews and became the atonement for the sins of the world.

The scriptures that are listed are simply some of the scriptures that are mentioned in the articles. If you wish to read the articles then please click on the links provided and it will take you to the article.

In reviewing the messiah’s life I am reminded of the closing words of the Gospel of John which reads:

John 21:25 (ESV) Now there are also many other things that Jesus did. Were every one of them to be written, I suppose that the world itself could not contain the books that would be written.
