Yet another reason Catholics believe Jesus Christ is the way God saves us...

...is the prophesies he fulfills and proclaims. 

The Old Testament is full of prophesies about the coming messiah. Some of them seem pretty tough to fulfill; for example he is to be born in Bethlehem, he must come out of Egypt, and be from Nazareth.We see Christ satisfy all of these long before he was old enough to know those prophesies existed (were he merely human). Christ also made several predictions that came true, from knowing the death he was going to die to predicting the destruction of the temple in Jerusalem (which happened in 70 AD).

That Jesus satisfied ancient prophesies beyond his human control and made many accurate prophesies while alive is yet another reason Catholics believe Jesus is the one God sent to save us.
