Animated Explanation of ‘The Messiah’

Why does the Bible refer to Jesus as the Messiah?

For many of us who did not grow up with an understanding of the Old Testament from a traditional Jewish perspective, we don’t always understand what it means that Jesus is the Messiah. This short video explains the meaning behind the term and how Jesus fulfilled the words of the prophets who spoke about him throughout the Old Testament.

Whether you know Jesus personally or not, this video will change the way you think of who he was, what he did and who he still is today.
