He was born over 2,000 years ago to a poor, teenage girl, with a new husband and a highly unlikely story. He lived in a small town, wrote no books during His life, and conquered no kingdoms. However, He changed the course of all humanity in His short 33 years on earth. Men have hated Him, loved Him, mocked Him and followed Him. Here at Harvest, we think He’s worth knowing. In fact, we believe that all of history points to Him.
Approximately 700 years before Jesus was born, the prophet Isaiah wrote this about Him:
"Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, a virgin will be with child and bear a son, and she will call His name Immanuel." Isaiah 7:14
"But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, and by His scourging we are healed." Isaiah 53:5
He was God’s only son, deity in flesh. He spoke with authority and love. He came to “seek and to save that which was lost” (Luke 19:10). He came to save me - to save you! That’s why we're here! It’s all about Jesus.
