Author's Annotation:

This book is a faith-builder and is good for all who desire this study. It has been effectively used as a help in adult mission lessons where students do not know the story of the Bible. It gives an overall look at the story that "A Savior is coming, The Savior is here, The Savior is coming again." It is arranged in 13 lessons so that the material may be covered in a quarter. If teaching the lessons to children, each lesson may be taught over two class periods. One week the prophecies would be covered and the second the fulfillments would be covered. The course would then last two quarters. We do not try to cover every single prophecy about Jesus because of the tedium. When Jesus was born the angel announced that "a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord." Christ is the Greek translation of the Hebrew word, Messiah. When the angel Gabriel told Mary that she would bear the son of the Most High, he told her to name the son Jesus (Luke 1:31-32). So Jesus is known as the Christ, or the Messiah, or the Savior. We know him as all three. We often say, "Jesus the Christ" or "Jesus the Messiah" or "Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior." Christ is not his last name, but a description of who he is. All the scriptures are quoted from the New International Version of the Bible, unless otherwise noted.
