Understanding Prophecy - 1st Coming of Christ - David Yamartino - 2 Para

Implications for the Seeker (8:1)

So what does all this mean to us? Is this just a new way of looking at prophecies and their interpretation? I believe it means much more than this. For if we consider thoughtfully, we can see that there is implied in the story of the life of Christ something far more important than anything that I have stated so far, in fact, something of infinite significance to the seeker of Christ. It is this: Although God did not reveal to us plainly how we should know who the Messiah was, and although His Coming ran counter to everyone's expectations, we were expected to accept and follow Him anyway (8:2)
