Jesus. Man. God. Savior and friend. With all that’s known about Jesus, there are still some facts about Him that aren’t known. This video published by Bible Flock Box shares some surprising or unknown facts about Jesus you might not have heard. Watch the video in its entirety below to learn more.
Surprising / Unknown Facts About Jesus
- He Was Poor: We know Jesus was poor because of 2 Corinthians 8:9, which states “For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that ye through His poverty might be rich.” How amazing is it that Jesus came down and forsake all He had to minister to us and provide us with a way to be made right with God.
- There Are Hundreds of Prophecies About Jesus in The Old Testament: These prophecies include clues about His virgin birth, the fact that His hand’s would be pierced and that He would be killed without any broken bones among others. Each one of these hundreds of prophecies were successfully fulfilled by Jesus, which is an occurrence that couldn’t possibly have happened by coincidence.
- Jesus Loves You: This might seem like something everyone should already know, but many people fail to realize the fact that Jesus loves them. Not just a little bit, either. He loves us so much that He left His heavenly home to come here and die for us. Romans 5:8 is proof of this: “But God commended His love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
