A major feature of these events is that they are said to be fulfilments of Scripture. However, these claims raise a number of questions today. Steve Moyise takes a thematic approach to these questions, looking at claims that Jesus was preceded by a forerunner and was not only a descendant of David but was the promised son of David. He then looks a the question of whether Jesus birth in Bethlehem, fight and return from Egypt, and settling in Nazareth are credible as historical events and whether they can be understood as fulfilments of Scripture.
