Prophecy Confirms our Faith

Jesus confirmed that Elias had to come before the Saviour, and then He said that John was the fulfilment of that prophecy (Matthew 17:10-12).

Similarly, Christ was the fulfilment of the prophecy that David their king would again rule over them.

Jesus' explanation places the fulfilment of the prophecy not in Israel's future but in His own generation.

The fulfilled prophecy now serves not to inform our distant future but to confirm our present faith.
