About 2,000 years ago, Jesus came to earth in a humble manner. The Savior of the world and God of all creation put on humanity to die for our sins and conquer death, giving the hope of salvation to all who turn from their sin and believe in Him. The Old Testament is filled with passages about the Messiah – all prophecies of Jesus Christ fulfilled. One example is the crucifixion of Jesus which was foretold in Psalm 22:16-18 approximately 1,000 years before Christ was born, long before this method of execution was even practiced. A number of Bible scholars suggest there are more than 300 prophetic Scriptures completed in the life of Jesus. After the resurrection, preachers of the New Testament church collectively declared that Jesus Christ was the Messiah by divine appointment. The Bible tells us, “Let all the house of Israel therefore know for certain that God has made Him both Lord and Christ, this Jesus whom you crucified” (Acts 2:36). There are a number of messianic predictions clearly fulfilled in Jesus Christ along with supporting references from the Old and New Testament. Here are six things you didn’t know about the prophecies of Jesus.
