|Best book I ever read beside the Bible itself: MESSIAH IN BOTH TESTAMENTS- FRED JOHN MELDAU-1967 CLASSIC
The Greatest Miracle in Print: the Record of MESSIAH in Both Testaments
“To HIM give all the prophets witness” (Acts 10:43). “In the volumeof the Book it is written of Me” (Ps.40:7; Heb. 10:7).
“THE MOST AMAZING DRAMA that ever was presentedto the mind of man—a drama written in prophecy in the OldTestament and in biography in the four Gospels—is the narra-tive of Jesus the Christ. One outstanding fact, among many,completely isolates HIM. It is this: that one Man only in thehistory of the world has had explicit details given beforehandof His birth, life, death and resurrection; that these detailsare in documents given to the public centuries before He ap-peared, and that no one challenges, or can challenge, thatthese documents were widely circulated long before His birth; and that anyone and everyone can compare for himself theactual records of His life with those old documents, and findthat they match one another to a nicety. The challenge of this pure miracle is that it happened concerning one Man onlyin the whole history of the world” ( D. M. Panton).*To focus attention on the unparalleled wonder of this liter-ary miracle, think for a moment:who could have prewritten alife of George Washington or Abraham Lincoln, or any other.
* Scores of other Bible students have called attention to this same amaz-ing fact.We quote from one more.Canon Dyson Hague. He says: “Cen- turies before Christ was born His birth and career.His sufferings andglory, were all described in outline and detail in the Old Testament.Christ is the only Person ever born into this world whose ancestry, birth-time, forerunner, birth-place, birth-manner, infancy, manhood, teaching.character, career, preaching, reception, rejection, death, burial, resurrec-tion and ascension were all prewritten in the most marvelous manner cen-turies before He was born.”“Who could draw a picture of a man not yet born? Surely God, andGod alone. Nobody knew 600 years ago that Shakespeare was going to beborn; or 250 years ago that Napoleon was to be born.Yet here in theBible we have the most striking and unmistakable likeness of a Man por-trayed, not by one, but by twenty or twenty-five artists, none of whomhad ever seen the Man they were painting.” Read the rest of the book
