Bible prophecy proves that Jesus is the Messiah. Old Testament prophecies reference Jesus numerous times, including in Isaiah 53, Micah 5, Zechariah 11, etc. However, many are unaware that Daniel 9 also points to Jesus as the Messiah. Here is Daniel 9 referencing the coming of the Messiah:
“(24) Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy. (25) Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. (26) And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.” (Daniel 9:24-26)
In this video, I will show how we can use Daniel 9 to confirm that the Bible identifies Jesus Christ as the Messiah. With this information, you will be able to prove to skeptics that what the Bible says is true, including the things that it says about Jesus.
