God . . . spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets . . .

(Hebrews 1:1)

 

God also spoke to all the biblical prophets about the coming Prince of Peace. It is indeed true that God’s Word came through these great men and women. They did not communicate their own ideas but the specific message God gave to them. Yet the Old Testament books containing history, psalms, poetry, and prophetic words only revealed piecemeal information about Christ. However, the Old Testament message pertaining to the coming of Christ was as authentic in its partial revelation as the complete disclosure of Jesus Christ in the New Testament.
