GOD: new evidence


A Prophecy Misused?

(Unwrapped: the Truth about Christmas #25)

What's in the series?      Previous: Herod the Tyrant       Next: Out of Egypt?

Matthew says that Herod's slaughter of the boys in Bethlehem fulfilled a prophecy from the Old Testament (Jeremiah 31:15).

At first it looks as if he is misusing a prophecy that was not about the birth of Jesus at all.

But the wider context of the prophecy Matthew quotes talks about God making a new agreement with his people.

The Gospels record that Jesus applied this promise of a new agreement to himself – a new agreement that was sealed by his death.

The writers of the rest of the New Testament also understood Jesus as fulfilling Jeremiah's prophecy of this new agreement.

‘Astronomy leads us to a unique event, a universe which was created out of nothing, and delicately balanced to provide exactly the conditions required to support life. In the absence of an absurdly improbable accident, the observations of modern science seem to suggest an underlying, one might say, supernatural plan.’
- Nobel Prize-winning scientist Arno Penzias
