david_versus_goliath_is_a_messianic_type

 

Establish the need: We already saw the last two weeks that the beginning and end of 1-2 Samuel has Messianic prophecies stated in poetic forms; but in between the bookends does any of the narrative stories gives us any types pointing towards the Messiah?

Purpose: We will explore how this story is a type pointing to Jesus with two points so that we would be at awe with God and Christ and the Bible as our act of worship.

  • We expect a Messianic typology in 1-2 Samuel because of the parallels between Abraham and David
  • The parallel with David and Jesus

david_s_final_words_are_messianic

Establish the need: How many of us would right away list 2 Samuel 23:1-7 as Messianic Prophecy when asked to list Messianic passages?

Purpose: We will consider four reasons why we know Jesus existed in history.

  • David is focusing on the Messiah (v.1)
  • Affirmation this is Prophetic (v.2-3a)
  • The Messiah’s Righteousness (v.3b-4)
  • The Basis of the Messiah’s Coming is the Davidic Covenant (v.5)
  • The Messiah’s Judgment (v.6-7)

the_book_of_ruth_is_messianic

  • Deuteronomy 18 is not predicting Muhammad

balaams_oracles_are_messianic

Establish the need: What are the details of the Messiah in Numbers 24?

Review: Last week we considered five reasons we believe Balaam’s third and fourth discourse found in Numbers 24:5-9 and Numbers 24:14-19 are Messianic prophecies.

  1. Clues from the Pentateuch: a prophetic poem at the end of an era
  2. Clues from themes from the Abrahamic Covenant in Balaam’s narrative
  3. Clues from themes in Genesis 49 in Balaam’s narrative
  4. Clues from the narrator of Balaam’s narrative
  5. Objection: Isn’t Balaam a false prophet?

Purpose: In this session we will consider three details about the Messiah found in Numbers 24:7-9 and refute an objection

  1. The Messianic Seed will be a King of Israel (Numbers 24:7)
  2. The Messianic Seed will be come out of Egypt (Numbers 24:8)
  3. The Messiah will bless those who bless Him and curse those who curse Him (Numbers 24:9)
  4. Objection: Isn’t this about Saul?

Psalm 22:17 (in Hebrew it is Psalm 22:16) is a fascinating passage that I think, with all pun intended “nailed” the argument that Jesus is the predicted suffering Messiah with a prophecy that the Messiah would be pierced:

For dogs have surrounded me; A band of evildoers has encompassed me; They pierced my hands and my feet.

The prophecy “They pierced my hands and my feet” is translated by non-Messianic Jews as “Like a lion, my hands and my feet” and there are questions of Textual Criticism.

So which reading should one take?

This video that Alex Kruse shared was so fascinating and takes on this issue from a fresh way by considering not just Textual Criticism but the structure of Psalm 22 itself.

You got to watch it:

I have a Muslim troll th blog’s Facebook page with an argument from Ezra 5:1 for Islam’s god of Allah.  He shared this photo of the verse in Hebrew:

This isn’t the first time I heard of a similar argument.  I first heard them from reputable Islamic apologists; I believe I heard it from Shabir Ally.

Is this a good argument? I don’t think so, here’s why:

christmas_expectations_in_genesis

Establish the need:  The coming of God to be born to save us from our sins, when was this first predicted or anticipated?  Can it be that this “Christmas” hope, of God coming to be born to save us from our sins, be predicted as far back as the book of Genesis?

Purpose:  Today we will see four points concerning the expectation of the Messiah

  • Young or old should know the Old Testament expectation of the Messiah (Luke 1:46-55)
  • The expectation of the coming of the Messiah with Adam and Eve
  • The expectation of the coming of the Messiah with Lamech
  • The expectation of the coming of the Messiah with Noah

Isaiah 53 is a famous Messianic prophecy of Christ in the Bible, hundreds of years before Christ was born His death and the  meaning of what His death accomplished is taught in this chapter.

Yet someone said the following:

God didn’t crush His own Son. At least that’s not whats found in the Septuagint of Isaiah 53:10, which is what the Apostles used.

Septuagint is the Greek translation of the Old Testament.

This individual also said this:

The Apostles couldn’t have used the masoretic text because it didn’t exist yet.

The Masoretic text refers to the Hebrew medieval manuscripts of the Old Testament.

Before answering here’s what the New American Standard Bible says for Isaiah 53:10=

But the Lord was pleased To crush Him, putting Him to grief; If He would render Himself as a guilt offering, He will see His offspring, He will prolong His days, And the good pleasure of the Lord will prosper in His hand.

I think the phrase “the Lord was pleased To crush Him” is part of what Isaiah 53:10 contrary to what the person said in his comment.  Here’s my response:
