One of the most remarkable things about the birth of Jesus Christ is the fact that it for centuries was trailed and foretold in many of the Old Testament books. The prophet Isaiah is the standout voice when it comes to the prophecies concerning the coming of Jesus into this world. For example, we see it in Isaiah 7:14; 8:8 and 8:10. Six hundred and fifty years later, that which Isaiah spoke about was fulfilled. Before that momentous event took place, there was a significant precursor.
