Grace to You

Now tonight we're going to talk about the subject of the Messiah, the promised Messiah. For those of you here visiting with us, we're doing a series on finding Christ in the Old Testament and we've been all kinds of places, and tonight we're going to look at the concept of Messiah. You will remember if you were with us this morning, that in John 1:41--we're studying the gospel of John in the morning--and in John 1:41, Andrew, the first disciple called by Jesus to Himself, the first follower of Jesus, found his brother Simon, who we know as Peter, and he said to him, "We have found the Messiah. We have found the Messiah."

Just exactly who is it that is the Messiah? What does Andrew mean by that? Obviously he doesn't make an explanation to Peter because Peter knows what it means to say we have found the Messiah. We use that term a lot. It shows up in our songs, in the great oratorio, The Messiah, by Handel. We're familiar with the term but like so many terms, we may be familiar with, we don't necessarily know the underlying meaning of that term, and it's very, very rich in its Old Testament meaning....
