The Gospel of Jesus Christ - The Good Message

The prophets had foreshadowed the sacrifice He was to make.

He burst onto the scene at 30 years of age – speaking with an authority that astounded His listeners; prophesying of things to come; teaching with a depth of understanding that drew crowds; and performing outstanding miracles of healing and provision. Yet Jesus knew full well why He had come: “Search the Scriptures… they are they which testify of me” (John 5:39). And He knew who He was: “I and my......
