“Why?” is one of the first questions toddlers instinctively ask. And we continue to ask “Why?” throughout our life. Perhaps there is no realm in which “Why?” is asked more often than in the realm of God and the Bible. For instance, “Why did Jesus leave heaven and come to earth as a man?”
Entire books have been penned in an attempt to answer that question, but we can answer it partly this way: because the Old Testament prophets said God would become incarnate on earth. In other words, if Jesus had not been born as a Messiah-Man, the prophets would have been wrong. There are hundreds of predictions in the Old Testament concerning the first advent of Jesus of Nazareth, all fulfilled by Him. In fact, Jesus Himself told His disciples that the Law, the Prophets, and the Psalms all spoke of His coming. And they were right.
Why did Jesus come as a man? To keep God’s prophesied promises to send a Savior into the world (Isaiah 9:6-7).
