Prophecy – Jesus Christ Is a Descendant of Abraham
Date: 2066 B.C.
And through your offspring [seed] all nations on the earth will be blessed, because you have obeyed Me. Genesis 22:17-18 (NIV)
This prophecy promises that Abraham’s seed will bless the world. The Hebrew word, zera, for “offspring” in the prophecy is singular and, therefore, refers to one individual – the Messiah. The prophecy points to one individual as the direct descendant of Abraham. That seed is Jesus Christ.
