PROPHECIES JESUS FULFILLED (21)

(Message by Tanny Keng)

1. Prophecies of the Messiah Fulfilled in Jesus Christ

a) The books of the Old Testament contain many passages about the Messiah—all prophecies Jesus Christ fulfilled. For instance, the crucifixion of Jesus was foretold in Psalm 22:16-18 approximately 1,000 years before Christ was born, long before this method of execution was even practiced.

b) Some Bible scholars suggest there are more than 300 prophetic Scriptures completed in the life of Jesus.

c) Although this list is not exhaustive, you'll find 44 messianic predictions clearly fulfilled in Jesus Christ, along with supporting references from the Old and New Testament. 


I) PROPHECIES about JESUS

a) Messiah would be sent to heal the brokenhearted.

II) Old Testament Scripture

a) Isaiah 61:1-2 New International Version (NIV)

61 The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,
    because the Lord has anointed me
    to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
    to proclaim freedom for the captives
    and release from darkness for the prisoners,
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor
    and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn.

III) New Testament Fulfillment

a) Luke 4:18-19 New King James Version (NKJV)

18 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me,
Because He has anointed Me
To preach the gospel to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives
And recovery of sight to the blind,
To set at liberty those who are oppressed;
19 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.”
