The Preincarnate Christ

One of the best apologetic tools available to the Christian today is the evidence of Jesus Christ in the Old Testament. The Old Testament was completed four hundred years prior to His birth, so this is powerful proof of His preexistence and His Deity. This study will examine our Lord and Savior in the Old Testament in four different categories, that will soon follow in this entry:

1)Genealogy

2)Prophecy

3)Typology

4)Theophany

**********************************************************

1)Genealogy

a)Jesus is Eternal God from everlasting. Micah 5:2
b)Abrahamic Covenant. Genesis 17:7-8; 26:3-4
c)Isaac. Genesis 17:19; 21:12
d)Jacob. Genesis 28:13; Numbers 24:17
e)Judah. Genesis 49:8-10; Micah 5:2; Revelation 5:5
f)Descendent of Jesse. Isaiah 11:1-10
g)Davidic Covenant. II Samuel 7:4-17; Psalms 110:1-7; Jeremiah 23:5; Isaiah 9:7

Satan’s attempts to stop the Christ Line—

3)Jezebel and her daughter Athaliah attempted to destroy the Christ Line without success.
