When all of the Old Testament prophecies are taken together, we have an amazing portrait of the Messiah: 

1. He will be a Jew.
2. He will come from the tribe of Judah.
3. He will be a descendant of David.
4. He will be born in Bethlehem.
5. He will be born of a virgin. 

Who would fit all those qualifications? Many people could fit the first one, fewer the second, fewer still the third, very few the fourth, but only one person in history has ever met the fifth qualification. His name is Jesus Christ.

Let’s not forget this CHRISTmas that we are not celebrating a baby, but we are celebrating the Messiah, the Savior of the World!
