A. The Incredible LINE the Messiah Had to Be Born through
Prophecy Odds- (10 To the 2nd Power (1 in 10,000) Jesus would be a Descendant of David
As the Seed of the woman, Messiah had to come out of humanity.
As the Seed of Abraham, Messiah had to come from the nation of Israel.
As the Seed of Judah, he had to be of the tribe of Judah.
As the Seed of David, he had to be of the family of David.
The Davidic line reaches through The line of Seth to Noah,
Through the line of Shem to Abraham Genesis 22:18; 12; 17; 22.
He would be a descendant of Abraham's son, Isaac, not Ishmael (Gen. 17; 21).
Then Through the lines of Isaac, (Gen. 17; 21)
Through the lines of Jacob , not Esau (Gen. 28; 35:10-12; Num. 24:17).
Through the lines of Judah, More specifically, he would be a descendant of Judah, not of the other eleven brothers of Jacob. Fulfilled: See Christ's genealogy in Matthew 1.
More specifically, he would be a descendant of the family of Jesse in the tribe of Benjamin (Isaiah 11:1-5). Fulfilled: See Christ's genealogy in Matthew 1 and Luke 3:23-38
More specificially, he would be of the house of David (2 Samuel 7:12-16; Jeremiah 23:5; Psalm 89:3-4). Fulfilled: See Christ's genealogy in Matthew 1; Luke 1:27, 32, 69.
Note: Since the the Jewish genealogical records were destroyed in 70 A.D., along with the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple, it would not be possible for a Messiah imposter who was born later to prove his lineage back to David and thus fulfill this prophecy. The MESSIAH had to be born in the line of David according to 2 Samuel 7:12-13.
B : His Unnatural Birth. It was prophesied that the Messiah must be born from a virgin (Isa 7:14), and this was fulfilled when Jesus was born (Mt 1:22-23).
C: Prophecy Tells US GOD Picked the City of Bethlehem for The Messiah to be Born in. Odds 10 to 5th Power (1 Chance in 100,000) Jesus would be born in Bethlehem
God eliminated all the cities of the world and selected Bethlehem, with a population of less than a thousand, as the Messiah's birthplace (Mic 5:2).
Christ's birth in Bethlehem was apparently not by the choice of Mary and Joseph; it was forced upon them by Caesar Augustus' taxation decree which required Joseph to leave his home in the city of Nazareth and return to his place of origin to pay the tax.
E: Young babies would die in an attempt to kill Yeshua at His birth.(Jeremiah 31:15; Matthew 2:16-18) An Angel told Mary and Joseph to escape to Egypt before they went about killing all the new borns! A miracle from GOD
