When Jesus was born...

  • The Jews only had the Hebrew Bible, the Tanak (our Old Testament),

  • The Tanak was at least 400 years old,

  • The Jews were waiting for a Messiah, a Savior, a King!

  • He fulfilled many foretold prophesies in the Tanak!

  • He was born in unexpected humble beginnings!

  • God highlighted his birth with a brilliant star.

  • For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16

Jesus said "Show me the coin used for paying the tax.” They brought him a denarius, and he asked them, “Whose image is this? And whose inscription?” “Caesar’s,” they replied.

Then he said to them, “So give back to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s.” Matthew 22: 19-21
