One of the very first mentions of Jesus in the bible was in the the old testament (before He was born). Its about a time when a king in Babylon decides to have a giant gold statue of himself made and places it before all his officials and citizens, commanding that they all bow down and worship it.
However, the Israeli’s had been instructed in their faith not to bow down to any other God except the one true father in heaven. Because three particular Israelites were strong in their faith they did not bow down to the kings commandment. The King was furious and orders them all to be thrown in a massive furnace of fire.
As the guards force the three men into the furnace and pour flammable fuel all over them the king grabs a torch, throws it at the men, and they all go up in flames. However, as everyone stands there watching the men they notice the men are not being burnt. Suddenly in the fire there appears a fourth man!
In awe and disbelief, slowly the king walks towards the fire with his hand out attempting to touch the flames and not be burnt like the other Israelis were able to do. However, the sinful king gets badly burned and the other three men walk out of the furnace untouched and unharmed. The citizens watching with JOY call out to the other citizens to rise up, saying “God is with us!”
