Prophecies About The Messiah
Fulfilled In Jesus


Was Jesus truly the Messiah the Jewish people had so long been waiting for? It has been said that the New Testament is concealed in the Old, and the Old Testament is revealed in the New. The Bible is full of prophecies concerning the Messiah. The chance of more than one person fulfilling ALL the prophecies is so astronomical as to be virtually impossible.

Here are some of those prophecies about the Messiah who was to come, and the verses showing the fulfillment of that prophecy. These are by no means all of the prophecies, but they are enough to prove that Jesus Christ is indeed the Messiah. Read and study these prophecies, and hide them in your heart, so you can always know how to answer someone who doesn't believe in Jesus Christ.
