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.
Jesus is the Seed of the Woman
Gen. 3:15 I will put hostility between you and the woman,
and between your offspring and her offspring.
He will bruise your head,
and you will bruise his heel.”
Galatians 4:4 But when the fullness of the time came, God sent out his Son, born to a woman, born under the law, 5 that he might redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as children.
Matthew 1:18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was like this: After his mother, Mary, was engaged to Joseph, before they came together, she was found pregnant by the Holy Spirit.
Jesus – The Passover Lamb
Ex. 12:21 Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel, and said to them, “Draw out, and take lambs according to your families, and kill the Passover. 22 You shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the basin, and strike the lintel and the two door posts with the blood that is in the basin. None of you shall go out of the door of his house until the morning. 23 For Yahweh will pass through to strike the Egyptians; and when he sees the blood on the lintel, and on the two door posts, Yahweh will pass over the door, and will not allow the destroyer to come in to your houses to strike you. 24 You shall observe this thing for an ordinance to you and to your sons forever. 25 It shall happen when you have come to the land which Yahweh will give you, as he has promised, that you shall keep this service. 26 It will happen, when your children ask you, ‘What do you mean by this service?’ 27 that you shall say, ‘It is the sacrifice of Yahweh’s Passover, who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt, when he struck the Egyptians, and spared our houses.’”
The people bowed their heads and worshiped.
I Corinthians 5:7 Purge out the old yeast, that you may be a new lump, even as you are unleavened. For indeed Christ, our Passover, has been sacrificed in our place.
