Supremacy of God's Son
Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become as much superior to angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs. – Hebrews 1:1-4
Historically, before Jesus was born into the world, God spoke to his chosen people, the Israelites, through prophets. Now, God speaks to us through his Son, Jesus.
This might sound odd–why didn't God just use Jesus at the very start? Did he try all those prophets first and use Jesus as a last resort?
No. Jesus does not make the prophets obsolete. In fact, the prophets were necessary in God's plan because they would prophesy (predict the future), and Jesus would fulfil each and every prophecy.
Prophecy is one of the strongest evidence that we have to prove that God is indeed real. For no man can consistently accurately predict to such detail the future and be correct.
Jesus fulfilled all the prophecies of the old testament. Currently, the only unfulfilled prophecy we have left in the Bible is the book of Revelation. We would be wise to study it well so that we may know what is coming.
