Dr. Michael Rydelnik of Moody Bible Institute and host of Open Line on Moody Radio joins Perry and Shawna to talk about ancient prophecies from the Old Testament fulfilled in Jesus. Michael is the editor of the brand new Moody Handbook of Messianic Prophecy, www.moodypublishers.com. In our first conversation Michael shares about this incredible new resource and how it can equip us to “give an answer to the hope that lies within us,” by showing prophecies fulfilled in Jesus the Messiah. Then we dive into the prophecy from Isaiah 9:6-7 fulfilled in Jesus, the Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father and Prince of Peace. Then we look at a prophecy of Jesus that will be fulfilled in Jesus second coming from Isaiah 11, a day we long for when “the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.” An endless age of such peace that the lion will lay down with the lamb. Then we have Michael share his faith story of growing up in a devout Jewish home, but that it was his Jewish mother’s decision to follow Jesus and Messianic prophecy that the Lord used to draw Michael to himself. Finally we land on the prophecy from Micah 5:2 that predicts Jesus’ birth in Bethlehem. Messianic prophecy deepens our trust that the bible is God-breathed and it leads us to worship the God who knows the end from the beginning and who loved us so much that he sent his son!
