Jesus' prophecies

Jesus is acknowledged by Christians as the Son of God and the only path to salvation. Jesus was born about 2000 years ago in Bethlehem. Jesus not only prophesied, but he is the fulfillment of many Messianic prophecies. Jesus was also unique in that he prophesied about his own life and about the impact that his words would have on the world. He said that His words would never be forgotten and that they would be taught to people everywhere in the world. Today, we can see with our own eyes, that Jesus' words are the best known of any person in the history. We can also see that there are Christians in virtually every part of the world. In fact, Christianity is the first worldwide religion.
