Many prophecies of Jesus

Why should we follow Jesus?

Why not follow Confucius, or Buddha, or Muhammad?

  • After all, millions of others in the world do so today, and have done so down through the centuries!

One of the reasons why we should follow Jesus, rather than Confucius or Buddha or Muhammad, is our lesson for today:

Some of the many prophecies concerning Jesus in contrast to no prophecies concerning others.

  • Jesus Himself taught … 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.
  • And the apostles taught the same … Acts 4:11-12 “He is the STONE WHICH WAS REJECTED by you, THE BUILDERS, but WHICH BECAME THE CHIEF CORNER stone. 12And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.”
    • e., Salvation is only in Jesus – and not in Confucius, or Buddha, or Muhammad, or anyone else!

Zechariah chapter 14 is NOT a second coming of Christ chapter

An exposition of Zechariah 14

  • Zechariah 14 is almost universally used as a “second coming of Christ chapter” but it is a “destruction of Jerusalem (AD 70) and the nations” chapter instead.
  • In other words, rather than a “second coming of Christ chapter”, Zechariah 14 is a “first coming of Christ chapter”.  The context is decisive in proving this.
