Over 700 years before Jesus was born, God told the prophet Isaiah about the Saviour He promised to send and what the Saviour would do. Isaiah wrote these words down and we can find them in the book of Isaiah in the Bible. When Jesus started His work, He read these words in the synagogue in Nazareth then at end said, ‘Today all these promises have come true.’ – Slide 1
