BIBLE PROPHECIES: MESSIANIC (21)

(Message by Tanny Keng)

1. Messianic - Old Testament prophecies fulfilled by Jesus Christ

a) The Bible has many prophecies that ancient rabbis identified as being "Messianic," meaning that they speak about an "anointed one" - a special person anointed by God - to carry out work ordained by God. Christians, including us at this web site, believe that Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of the Bible's Messianic promises. Perhaps the Bible's most famous Messianic passages are found in Isaiah, chapter 53.

b) Bible prophecies are listed below.

2. Bible Prophecies

a) Jesus was betrayed by a friend. 

Psalm 41:9 New International Version (NIV) 

Even my close friend,
    someone I trusted,
one who shared my bread,
    has turned against me. 


3. Written: About 1000 BC

a) Many of the Bible's Psalms, which were written before the time of Jesus, contain details that foreshadowed events in the life of Jesus. In Psalm 41, for example, the psalmist wrote of being betrayed by a friend, someone close enough to have shared food with him (verse 9). This foreshadowed something that happened later with Jesus. As explained in Matthew 26:47-50, Jesus was betrayed by Judas, one of the 12 apostles, shortly after Jesus and the apostles had shared bread during the Last Supper. Jesus was crucified by the Romans a short time later.


The End ...
