In the Bible it was foretold that the Messiah would come into the world to deliver people from sickness, suffering and death. Is Jesus of Nazareth this Messiah?
How would one recognize the Messiah?
According to the predictions of the Bible, the Messiah or Christ would fill two roles. * Much time would pass between his first and second roles. First he came to earth as a man. In order that he could be clearly identified, numerous details about his life and work were announced in the holy scriptures even before that. Many prophecies were actually "testimonies for Jesus" or references to him as the Messiah (Revelation 19:1.
Jesus did as a man in small things what he will soon do from heaven in great things - all over the earth
The Messiah would . . .
descend from King David (Isaiah 9:7; Luke 3:23-31) *
be born in Bethlehem (Micah 5:2; Luke 2:4-7)
humbly preach "the good news" (Isaiah 61:1; Luke 4:43)
not taken seriously, but despised (Isaiah 53:3; Matthew 26:67, 68)
be betrayed for 30 pieces of silver (Zechariah 11:12, 13; Matthew 26:14, 15)
do not say a word at his wrongful condemnation (Isaiah 53:6, 7; Matthew 27:12-14)
die as a sacrificial lamb, so that people could be clean again before God, free from sin (Isaiah 53:7; John 1:29, 34, 36)
be killed without breaking any of his bones (Psalm 34:20; John 19:33, 36)
be buried where the rich are buried (Isaiah 53:9; Matthew 27:57-6
be raised on the third day (Matthew 16:21; 28:5-7)
These are only some of the many prophecies that were fulfilled in Jesus. Another proof of Jesus as Messiah was that he healed the sick and raised the dead. This also helps us to trust that through him the same thing will soon happen all over the earth-as foretold in the Bible (Luke 7:21-23; Revelation 21:3, 4). Since his resurrection, he now waits at the right hand of God to complete his task as Messiah (Psalm 110:1-6).
"When the Christ has come, will he not do more signs than he has done? (John 7:31)

The aorta - excellently constructed

The aorta is a much more complex "tube" than scientists once thought. At first glance, the aortic arch may look like the curved handle of an umbrella. But this description is not quite correct. In fact, the aortic arch is not just two-dimensionally curved, but has a three-dimensional curvature that is more like a semicircular piece of a spring. On a flat surface, one end of the semicircle would point upwards.

Why is it constructed in this way? This causes the blood not to simply flow through the aortic arch like water in a river bend, but to swirl the blood in two spirals. On the inner side of a river bend, the water flows more slowly, which allows sediments to settle. On the outside of the bend, however, the water flows faster and can even erode the river bank. In the aorta, dangerous sediments could be formed due to different flow velocities of the blood on the inner side of the bend. However, since the blood in the aorta is swirled in a spiral shape and thus its inner wall is flushed more evenly, this danger is less.

The aorta is really excellently constructed. With good reason, the Bible book of Psalms says, "I [am] made wonderful in a fearsome way" (Psalm 139:14).

Develop godliness.
A good soldier is loyal. He defends the people he loves and what is important to him with all his strength. Paul urged Timothy to develop godliness, that is, to be loyal to God (1Ti 4:7). The deeper our love for God and our devotion to Him, the greater our desire to hold fast to the truth (1Ti 4:8-10; 6:6).
