Just Another Man?
1.What four seemingly outrageous claims does Jesus make about Himself in John 14:6? ________________________ __________________________________ 2.According to the outset of this presentation, why is Jesus Christ being marginalized today? ________________________________________________ ________________ NOTE: He must be placed on the same level of all the other “gods,” in order to foster world religious unity. 3.What is the mathematical probability of one man accidentally, or coincidentally fulfilling just eight specific prophecies? (Josh McDowell, The Evidence That Demands a Verdict)?________________________________________ _______ NOTE: Imagine for a moment that you are in a large stadium of 60,000 people. And you ask the onlookers a series of questions, and you also ask them to stand if the question applies to them. As the questions increase the number of people of whom the questions pertain decrease. For example, you ask the crowd, “Is there anyone seated 1

here today that has chronic headaches?” Assuredly, you would have quite a number that would be suffering from this condition. Then perhaps you might ask, “Is there anyone here who is wearing a red shirt or blouse, and is also suffering from chronic headaches?” Many would sit down at that time. Then for a final question you ask, “Who has a fractured bone, is wearing a red shirt or blouse, and is also suffering from chronic headaches?” Perhaps one would be left standing at that time. Do you see the principle? When the questions increase the number of adherents proportionally decrease. Here in this little illustration we only spoke of three questions. What if we could ask every human being that was ever born 8 questions that come from the prophecies of the Old Testament regarding the identity of the Messiah, only one could stand up when asked all those questions, and that one would be Jesus Christ of Nazareth. 4.What preceded the ministry of the Messiah? PROPHECY: Isaiah 40:3, “The _____ of him that crieth in the ___________, Prepare ye the ____ of the LORD, make straight in the _______ a highway for our ____.” FULFILLED: Matthew 3:1-3, “In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the ___________ of Judea, 2 And saying, ______ ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. 3 For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet _________ ___, saying, The ______ of one crying in the ___________, Prepare ye the ____, of the Lord make his paths straight.” 5.From whom does freedom come? John 8:36, “If __ ___ therefore shall make you free, ye ____ ___ _____ indeed.” 2

NOTE: True freedom only comes from a consistent personal experience with Jesus Christ. 6.Where is the kingdom of Jesus? John 18:36, “Jesus answered, My kingdom is ____ ___ ____ _______…” NOTE: The principles found in the kingdom of Jesus (Heaven) are the polar opposites of the principles that this world holds so dear. (Pride, Selfishness, etc.) 1.How was the birth of the Messiah foretold? PROPHECY: Isaiah 7:14, “Therefore, the Lord himself, shall give you a sign; Behold, a _______ shall ________, and bear a son, and shall call his name _________.” FULFILLED: Matthew 1:23, “Behold a _______, shall be with child, and shall ______ forth a son, and they shall call his name __________, which being interpreted is, _____ ____ ____.” NOTE: Obviously, this was not a normal birth, but a miraculous birth. A virgin brought forth a son. And this name Emmanuel that was given literally means, “God with Us.” So, Jesus was not just a good moral teacher, but according to the testimony of the Bible, Jesus is God! 2.What did the ministry of the Messiah look like? PROPHECY: Isaiah 61:1, “The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to _____ ___ ______ ________ unto the meek; he hath sent me to _____ ___ the brokenhearted, to ________ _________ to 3

the captives, and the __________ ___ ____ ___________ to them that are bound; 2 To ________ the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; __ _________ all that mourn;” FULFILLED: Luke 4:18-19, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to _________ ____ ________ to the poor; he hath sent me to _____ the brokenhearted, to ______ ___________ to the captives, and _________ of ______ to the blind, to set ___ _______them that are bruised, 19 To ______ the acceptable year of the Lord.” 3.What manner of teaching would the Messiah use? PROPHECY: Psalm 78:2, “I will open my mouth in a _____ _____ …” FULFILLMENT: Matthew 13:34, “All these things spake Jesus in _________; and without a __________ spake he not unto them:” 4.How would the Messiah be betrayed? PROPHECY: Zechariah 11:12-13, “…So they weighed for my price _________ _________ of ___________. 13 …And I took the ______ _______ of _______ and cast them to the _______ in the ________ of the LORD.” FULFILLED: Matthew 27:5, 7, “And he cast down the ____ ___ of ________ in the temple, and departed…7 And they took counsel, and brought with them the ___________ _______, to bury strangers in.” 5.What did the Messiah give in the last moments of His life? 4

PROPHECY: Isaiah 50:6 , “I gave my ______ to the smiters, and my _______ to them that plucked off the hair: I hid not my _______ from shame and spitting.” FULFILLEMT: Matthew 26:67, “Then did they ____ in his _____, and ________ him; and others ______ him with the palms of their ______.” 6.When the Messiah was accused wrongfully how did he react? PROPHECY: Isaiah 53:7, “He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he ________ ___ ___ ______: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he ________ ___ ____ _________.” FULFILLMENT: Matthew 27:12, “And when he was accused of the chief priests and elders, he _________ _________.” 7.Where was the Messiah pierced? PROPHECY: Psalm 22:16, “For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my ______ and my _____.” FULFILLMENT: Luke 23:33, “And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they ____________ him…” 8.As the Messiah’s death drew near, what was he given to eat and drink? PROPHECY: Psalm 69:21, “They gave me also _______ for my meat; and in my thirst they gave me _________ to drink.” 5

FULFILLMENT: Matthew 27:34, “They gave him _________ to drink mingled with ______: and when he tasted thereof, he would not drink.” 9.Who was the Messiah numbered with in his death? PROPHECY: Isaiah 53:12, “…because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was ___________ with the ___________…” FULFILLMENT: Mark 15:27-28, “And with him they crucify two thieves; the one on his _____ _____, and the other on his ____. 28 And the scripture was ___________, which saith, And he was numbered with the ___________.” 10.Who did the Messiah make intercession for? PROPHECY: Isaiah 53:12, “…and made intercession for the ______________.” FULFILLMENT: Luke 23:34, “Then said Jesus, Father _____ ___ ____; for they know not what they do…” 11.How many bones of the Messiah were broken at the time of his death? PROPHECY: Psalm 34:20, “He keepeth ____ his bones: not ___ of ____ is broken.” FULFILLED: John 19:32-33, “Then came to soldiers and brake the legs of the first, and of the other which was with him. 33 But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they _______ ____ his legs.” 12.According to the Christian Classic, The Desire of Ages; 6

why did Christ suffer the death, which was ours? “Christ was treated as we deserve, that we might be treated as He deserves. He was condemned for our sins, in which He had no share, that we might be justified by His righteousness, in which we had no share. He suffered the death which was ours, _____ ___ ______ ______ ___ _____ _____ ____ ____. “With His stripes we are healed.” The Desire of Ages, Ellen G. White, p. 25 NOTE: This is the most beautiful and undeserving transaction in the history of the universe! The sinless one, Jesus Christ, suffered something that every son and daughter of Adam deserves, the full condemnation of God against sin. But, Christ stepped in to substitute for the fallen sinful race. And upon the reception of Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord by faith, the sinner is looked upon not as he or she is apart from Jesus, but as he or she is looked upon as he or she is in Jesus. In other words, the sinner is looked upon perfectly clad in the perfect obedient life of Jesus Christ, and the perfect life of Christ is substituted for the sinful, corrupt life of the sinner. This is the good news of the gospel! 13.What does the sinner have to do in order to receive this incredible gift? John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that ___________ ___________ in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” 14.Are there any secular history accounts that prove that Jesus Christ was a historic figure? “Christus, from whom their name is derived, was executed at the hands of the procurator Pontius Pilate in the reign 7

of Tiberius.” Tacitus, the Roman historian, writing in about 115 AD, speaks about Nero’s persecution of the Christians in 46 AD. “Since the Jews were continually making disturbances at the instigation of Christus, he (Claudius) expelled them from Rome.” Suetonius the Roman historian, writing in about AD 120, speaks about Christus. “On the eve of the Passover they hanged Jeshu of Nazareth.” The Talmud (Jewish traditions from the 3rd century) 15.What office is Jesus fulfilling today? Hebrews 8:1-2, We have such an ____ _____, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens; A minister of the _________, and of the ____ ___________, which the Lord pitched, and not man. NOTE: Jesus is actively involved in each of our lives today. He is our high priest in the sanctuary in heaven. We need not go to any person on earth for forgiveness of sins, we can go directly to Jesus. 16.What are the two types of beasts that are battling in Daniel Chapter 8? Daniel 8:3, 5, “Then I lifted up mine eyes and saw, and, behold there stood before the river a ______…” 5 “And as I was considering, behold, an ___ _______ came from the west…” 17.What is the identity of these two beasts in Daniel Chapter 8? 8

Daniel 8:20-21, “The ram which thou sawest are the kings of ______ and ________. 21 And the rough goat is the king of __________: and the great horn that is between his eyes is the first king.” NOTE: It is crystal clear that the ram represents Media and Persia (Medo-Persia) and the goat represents Greece. Who was this first king of Greece? His name was Alexander the Great. We will discuss these powers in greater detail in a future presentation. 18.What are the characteristics of the he goat in this verse? Daniel 8:8, “Therefore the he goat waxed ____ ______: and when he was _______ the _______ horn was _________; and four it came up four _______ ones toward the four winds of heaven.” NOTE: So, Alexander and his armies defeated the MedoPersians, but when Alexander was strong his reign also would come to an end, and in his place would stand four horns. It is an interesting historical fact, that although twelve generals were fighting over Greece when Alexander died it was divided into just four regions. 19.Which prophecy disturbed Daniel? Daniel 8:14, “And he said unto me, Unto ____ __________ and ______ ________ days; then shall the __________ be _________.” Daniel 8:26-27, “And the vision of the __________ and __ __________ which was told is true: wherefore _____ ___ the vision; for is shall be for _____ _____. 27 And I Daniel 9

__________, and was ______ certain days; afterward I rose up, and did the king’s business; and I was ___________ at the vision, but none understood it.” NOTE: This 2300 day prophecy was highly disturbing to Daniel. When know it to be the 2300 day prophecy because a biblical day begins in the evening. (See Genesis 1:5; Mark 1:32; Daniel 8:26) In a later study we will discuss the details of this entire prophecy, but for now we will concentrate on the first part of the 2300 day prophecy. 20.When would the entirety of the meaning of this prophecy be unveiled? Daniel 8:15-17, “And it came to pass, when I, even I Daniel, had seen the vision, and sought for the meaning, then, behold, there stood before me as the appearance of a man. 16 And I heard a man’s voice between the banks of Ulai, which called, and said, _________, make this man to ___________ the vision. 17 So he came near where I stood: and when he came, I was afraid, and fell upon my face: but he said unto me, Understand, O son of man: for at the _______ of the ________ shall be the __________.” 21.How was Daniel comforted in his time of distress? Daniel 9:21-23, “Yea, while I was _________ in ______ ____, even the man ________, whom I had seen in the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, touched me about the evening oblation. 22 And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, O Daniel, I am now come forth to give you _______ and __________. 23 At the ____________ of thy _______________ the commandment came forth, and I am come to shew thee; for thou art __________ ______ ____: therefore __________ the matter, and ________ the 10

vision.” NOTE: The Angel discloses to Daniel that he is “greatly beloved.” God is no respecter of persons (Romans 2:11) If the veil between to seen and the unseen world could be stripped away, an angel could also say of you, that you are greatly beloved. Like Daniel, you may find yourself in perplexity. Like Daniel, you may be filled with anxiety. And like Daniel, you can pray to God. Every emergency we find in life is but a call to prayer. 22.According to Talmudic Law, which portion of the Old Testament is cursed? “May the bones of the hands and the bones of the fingers decay and decompose, of him who turns the pages of the book of Daniel, to find out the time of Daniel 9:24-27, and may his memory rot from off the face of the earth forever” (Talmudic Law, p.978, Section 2, Line 28) NOTE: This is very strange! Why would Rabbis place a curse on part of the Old Testament? Daniel 9:24-27 must contain something very important! 23.How long was the time period not previously discussed in the vision? Daniel 9:24, “__________ __________ are ____________ upon thy ___________ 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.” 11

NOTE: Seventy weeks were determined for Daniel’s people the Jews. 24.What is the meaning of the word “determined” in Daniel 9:24? 2852 chathak khaw-thak’ a primitive root; properly, to cut off, i.e. (figuratively) to decree:--determine. NOTE: The word determined means to cut off. Therefore this 70 week time period is cut off from the 2300 day prophecy. 25.For whom is the prophecy cut off, for? Daniel 9:24, “Seventy weeks are determined upon ____ ___ ________ 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.” NOTE: It is cut off or determined for Daniel’s people, the Jewish Nation. 26.In symbolic Bible prophecy, what is a day equal to? Numbers 14:34, “After the number of the days in which ye searched the land, even forty days, each _____ for a ______, …” Ezekiel 4:6, “…I have appointed thee each ______ for a _______.” 12

NOTE: In prophecy 1 day = 1 year. One week = 7 days, therefore 7 days is equal to 7 years. 27.When do these 2300 years begin and end? Daniel 9:25, “Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to __________ and to _________ ______________ unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again even in troublous times.” NOTE: The angel told Daniel to begin counting the 2,300day and 70-week prophecies from the decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem. God’s people were in captivity in the Persian empire at this time. The decree was made in the seventh year of King Artaxerxes, who began to reign in 464 B.C. (Ezra 7:7). Artaxerxes’ decree in 457 B.C. was the only one that specified restoring and rebuilding Jerusalem. 28.How many prophetic weeks from 457 BC would the Messiah be introduced? Daniel 9:25, “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 ___ ____ ________, and ___________ and ____ _______: the street shall be built again even in troublous times.” NOTE: Score = 20, Threescore = 60 + 7 + 2 = 69. 69 Weeks = 483 days = 483 years. If you start from 457 BC and go 483 years into the future, you come to the year 27 AD. 29.The word “Messiah” means anointed one. When was Jesus anointed? 13

Acts 10:37-38, “That word, I say, ye know, which was published throughout all Judaea, and began from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached; 38 How God ___________ Jesus of Nazareth with the ____ __ _______and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.” Luke 3:1, “Now in the __________ _______ of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, Pontius Pilate being governor of Judaea, and Herod being the tetrarch of Galilee,…” Luke 3:21-22, “Now when all the people were __________ _, it came to pass that Jesus also being ___________, and praying, the heaven was opened, 22 And the ________ ___ ____ descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him…” NOTE: In the year 12 AD Tiberius Caesar was granted supreme power from Augustus Caesar. (http://www. The fifteenth year of Tiberius Caesar was 27 AD. Jesus was baptized right on time! 30.What did Jesus proclaim shortly after His baptism? Mark 1:15, “And saying, The _______ is ____________, and the kingdom of heaven is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.” NOTE: Jesus knew for certain what time was fulfilled. His baptism marked the opening of his ministry, and it began in perfect compliance with the prophecies of Daniel chapter 9. 14

31.What happens in the 70th week of the prophecy? Daniel 9:26, “And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be ___ ___, 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 thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.” Isaiah 53:8, “He was taken from prison to judgment: and who shall declare his generation? For he was ___ ___ out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.” Daniel 9:27, “And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the ______ of the week he shall cause the ________ and __________ to cease…” NOTE: There is only one prophetic week (7 years) left in the prophecy. In the middle of the week Messiah would be cut off. If you go forward 3 and a half years from 27AD you come to the spring of 31 AD. That is when Jesus caused the sacrificial system of the Old Testament to come to an end, by his sacrificial death on the cross. He was cut off, but not for himself. This is an astounding prophecy, Jesus Christ was crucified exactly on time! 32.What happened at the end of the 70 weeks? Matthew 21:42-43, “Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes? 43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be _______ from 15

you, and ________ to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.” Acts 7:57-58, “Then they cried out with a loud voice, and __ _____ ______ ______, and ran upon him with one accord, 58 And cast him out of the city, and _______ ____: and the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young man’s feet, whose name was Saul.” NOTE: In 34 AD, the stoning of Stephen marked the end of the privilege of the Jewish Nation of being God’s chosen people. The Lord mercifully dealt with the stubbornness of the literal children of Israel, and he gave them 490 years of mercy. But, as a nation, Israel was rejected when the Jewish Leaders stoned Stephen as he preached how Jesus was the Messiah. 33.Which nation is now favored by God? Galatians 3:29, “And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye ________ __ ________, and heirs according to the promise. 1 Peter 2:9, “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an ____ ______, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him that called you out of darkness into his marvelous light:” NOTE: There is still a nation today that God favors. Instead of literal Israel, now when a person places their faith in Jesus Christ, as their Savior and Lord, that person is now a spiritual Israelite. “And if ye be Christ’s then are ye Abraham’s Seed.” 34.Why did Jesus come to this world? 16

John 10:10, “…I am come that they might have ____, and that they might have it _____ _________.” NOTE: Jesus came to give us life, not only future eternal life, but a more abundant life that can begin right now. As we get to know him through prayer and the reading of His word, we can experience first hand how good He really is. (See Psalm 34:8) MY DECISION FOR JESUS… Is it your desire to follow the only Biblical Messiah, Jesus Christ, and to be willing to experience the abundant life He is willing to give to you? Yes or No
