THE ROLE OF PROPHECY IN THE BIBLE PART 2
In another account, the prophet Micah named Bethlehem (a tiny village) as the birthplace of the Messiah (Mic. 5:2); that was in 700 BC. Do you think they conspired to make this happen?There were four centuries before the crucifixion was even invented when both King David (Ps. 22; 34:20) and the prophet Zechariah (Zec. 12:10) described Christ’s death in perfect depiction and according to this mode of execution. Historians and New Testament writers also confirmed this fulfillment. Jesus of Nazareth died on a Roman cross. Moreover, as predicted, not one of his bones broke. A spear would thrust into his side to verify he was dead.
Another interesting fact is how a group of prophets came out with a united prophetic word. According to eye-witness account, Elijah’s supernatural departure from Earth was predicted unanimously by a group of 50 prophets (2 Kgs. 2:3-11).
The company of prophets who were in Bethel came
out to Elisha, and said to him, “Do you know that
today the Lord will take your master away from
you?” And he said, “Yes, I know; keep silent.”
Elijah said to him, “Elisha, stay here; for the Lord has sent me to Jericho.” But he said, “As the Lord lives, and as you yourself live, I will not leave you.” So they came to Jericho. The company of prophets who were at Jericho drew near to Elisha, and said to him, “Do you know that today the Lord will take your master away from you?” And he answered, “Yes, I know; be silent.” (2 Kings 3:3-5)
