300+ Prophecies About Jesus

People talk about prophecies of the future and ask, “What will happen in the future?”

This site focuses primarily on those prophecies that have already been fulfilled.

We know that one day Jesus will return in the Second Coming, but this site does not focus on those prophecies.  Jesus’s Second Coming is only a matter of time. “Even so come, Lord Jesus.”

The prophecies about Jesus Christ listed on this site were spoken by different people who held widely different callings in life…priest, king, shepherd, as well as prophet.  These people  lived in different places and at different times in history.  The Lord God himself sovereignly gave the first prophecy in Genesis 3:15.

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.  These prophecies range from where He was to be born (Bethlehem) to how He  would live to how He died and the purpose of His life.

There is a range given of the existence of 300-350 prophecies about Jesus.

Consider the probability of so many prophecies being fulfilled.  Consider the probability people face who hope to win a lottery that consists of maybe 6 or 7 numbers.  How few actually have held a winning ticket with just six or seven numbers!

In the case of Jesus, this is a situation with 300 plus prophesied events and Jesus is the only person in history who fulfilled them all.

It would be like people you never knew prophesying where you would be born, how you would live, what you would do in life, and many other facts about you, currently known only to you and your family and friends.  And your friends and family only know those facts about you “after the fact”.  Consider that before the existence of current medical machinery, people did even not know whether a baby would be a boy or girl.

In contrast, the prophecies about Jesus and his birth, life, death, and purpose, were given centuries before He was born.

The only way true phophets knew what was going to happen was that 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.
