300+ Prophecies About Jesus
People ask, “What will happen in the future?”
They ask about future prophecies.
Rather than future prophecies, this site focuses on prophecies that have already been fulfilled.
Jesus will return in the Second Coming, even so come Lord Jesus, but this site does not focus on those prophecies.
The prophecies about Jesus Christ were spoken by different people with different callings in life…priest, king, shepherd, as well as prophet. These individuals lived in different places at different times in history. After the fall of Adam and Eve, the Lord God himself sovereignly gave the first prophecy in Genesis 3:15.
Genesis 3:15 (KJV) And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
The requirements for a true prophet were strict.
Deuteronomy 18:20 But the prophet who speaks a word presumptuously in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or who speaks in the name of other gods, that same prophet shall die.
These prophecies were fulfilled in one person, Jesus Christ. The prophecies range from where He was to be born (Bethlehem) to how He would live to how He died for the redemption of mankind.
I Corinthians 15:3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
A discussion of prophecy and fulfullment falls under the mathematical category of probability.
A fairly well known example of probability is the lottery. How few win with the probability of just six or seven numbers.
In the case of Jesus, this is far more than 6 or 7 events lining up. This is a situation with 300 plus prophesied events converging to be fulfilled in one person; Jesus is the only one in history who fulfilled them all.
The way true phophets knew what was going to happen was because of their obedience to God, they had a strong connection and relationship to God, and could hear the Lord’s voice.
The format for each blog post is this. The prophecy, as given in the Old Testament, comes first. The fulfillment of that prophecy in the life of Jesus Christ, as given in the New Testament, is listed second.
Because there are so many prophecies, it will be several years before they are all posted on this site (this is being written in 2020), as they are being posted at the rate of one a week. Keep coming back.
Again, the important thing to realize is that which the Bible itself says about prophecies. The prophecies in the Old Testament have been fulfilled in Jesus Christ, they have come to pass.
Deuteronomy 18:22 When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.
The Works of Christ
Isaiah 35:5 Then the eyes of the blind will be opened,
and the ears of the deaf will be unstopped.
6 Then the lame man will leap like a deer,
and the tongue of the mute will sing;
for waters will break out in the wilderness,
and streams in the desert.
Matthew 11:2 Now when John heard in the prison the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples 3 and said to him, “Are you he who comes, or should we look for another?”
4 Jesus answered them, “Go and tell John the things which you hear and see: 5 the blind receive their sight, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have good news preached to them. 6 Blessed is he who finds no occasion for stumbling in me.”
He Shall Save His People From Their Sins
Isaiah 35:4 Tell those who have a fearful heart, “Be strong!
Don’t be afraid!
Behold, your God will come with vengeance, God’s retribution.
He will come and save you.
Matthew 1:21 She shall give birth to a son. You shall name him Jesus, for it is he who shall save his people from their sins.”
Luke 2:11 For there is born to you today, in David’s city, a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
Jerusalem, Jerusalem, Who Kills the Prophets
Isaiah 32:2 A man shall be as a hiding place from the wind,
and a covert from the storm,
as streams of water in a dry place,
as the shade of a large rock in a weary land.
Matthew 23:37 “Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I would have gathered your children together, even as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you would not!
