Jesus Christ Was the Holy Seed in the Stump of Ancient Israel

In Isaiah 6:13 the prophet paints a picture of the context in which Messiah would come.  That is, the Israelite nation would be felled as a great tree (and indeed it fell to Nebuchadnezzar in 587 B.C.).  Only the stump would remain.  Yet from the stump would come the holy seed:  Messiah.  This seed was first promised in Genesis 3:15, and this promise was renewed in the promises to Abraham (a fact noted by the apostle Paul in Galatians 3:16).

Indeed by New Testament times, Israel was a stump, ruled by the great Roman empire.  And just as Isaiah had prophesied, the holy seed came from that stump – as the New Testament testifies.

  1. Almost got it just lacking reality translation
    Gal. 3:16 = Isaac
    Jesus was called the son of man = Adam= Abraham = God in the flesh. = Jacob
    Aholah and Aholibah were sisters daughters of the same mother and they were mine and gave birth to sons and daughters on to me. Said the Lord.

    The clue is daughters if the same mother not the same father which means He was talking about the wife’s of Jacob = God in the flesh if so then who is his son? = Isaac
    I came in the name of my father that is a clue I give you.
