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)
Date: 2 B.C.
The promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. The scripture does not say ‘and to seeds’ meaning many people, but to your ‘seed,’ meaning one person, who is Christ. Galatians 3:16 (NIV)
There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according to promise. Galatians 3:28-29
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.
