2 The Evidence of Messianic Prophecy Proving the Old Testament is from God

3 The Messianic Prophecies Here’s the key… Luke 24:44 everything written about me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled Then he said to them, “These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with you, that everything written about me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled.” 100 prophecies? The Prophecy Knowledge Handbook 191 prophecies? The Encyclopedia of Biblical Prophecy Nearly 300 prophecies? The New Evidence that Demands a Verdict 456 prophecies? Life and Times of Jesus the Messiah Best evidence is just to read with an open heart.

4 Born of a virgin Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. Isaiah 7:14 Now the birth of Jesus Christ took place in this way. When his mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child from the Holy Spirit. … 22 All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet: 23 “Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel”(which means, God with us). 24 When Joseph woke from sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded him: he took his wife, 25 but knew her not until she had given birth to a son.. Matthew 1:21-25

5 Born in Bethlehem But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah, who are too little to be among the clans of Judah, from you shall come forth for me one who is to be ruler in Israel, whose coming forth is from of old, from ancient days. Micah 5:2 Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the east came to Jerusalem, Matthew 2:1 …and assembling all the chief priests and scribes of the people, he inquired of them where the Christ was to be born. 5 They told him, “In Bethlehem of Judea, for so it is written by the prophet: Matthew 2:4-5

6 Preceded by a messenger A voice cries: In the wilderness prepare the way of the Lord; make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Isaiah 40:3 In those days John the Baptist came preaching in the wilderness of Judea, 2 “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” 3 For this is he who was spoken of by the prophet Isaiah when he said, “The voice of one crying in the wilderness: Prepare the way of the Lord; make his paths straight.’” Matthew 3:1-2

7 Enter Jerusalem on a colt Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout aloud, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your king is coming to you; righteous and having salvation is he humble and mounted on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey. Zechariah 9:9 When he drew near to … Olivet, he sent two of the disciples, 30 saying, “Go into the village in front of you, where on entering you will find a colt tied, on which no one has ever yet sat. Untie it and bring it here. 35 And they brought it to Jesus, and throwing their cloaks on the colt, they set Jesus on it. 36 And as he rode along, they spread their cloaks on the road. 37 As he was drawing near—already on the way down the Mount of Olives—the whole multitude of his disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen. Luke 19:29-37

8 Sold for thirty pieces of silver Then I said to them, “If it seems good to you, give me my wages; but if not, keep them.” And they weighed out as my wages thirty pieces of silver. 13 Then the Lord said to me, “Throw it to the potter” - the lordly price at which I was priced by them. So I took the thirty pieces of silver and threw them into the house of the Lord, to the potter. Zechariah 11:12 … and said, “What will you give me if I deliver him over to you?” And they paid him thirty pieces of silver. Matthew 26:15 And throwing down the pieces of silver into the temple, he departed, and he went and hanged himself. 6 But the chief priests, … took counsel and bought with them the potter's field as a burial place for strangers. Matthew 27:5-7

9 Gall and vinegar offered to him They put gall in my food and gave me vinegar for my thirst Psalm 69:21 (NIV) 28 After this, Jesus, knowing that all was now finished, said (to fulfill the Scripture), “I thirst.” John 19:28 34 they offered him wine to drink, mixed with gall, but when he tasted it, he would not drink it. Matthew 27:34 29 A jar full of sour wine stood there, so they put a sponge full of the sour wine on a hyssop branch and held it to his mouth. 30 When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, “It is finished,” John 19:29

10 Bones not broken 19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all. 20 He keeps all his bones; not one of them is broken. Ps. 34:19-20 But when they came to Jesus and saw that he was already dead, they did not break his legs. John 19:33

11 He would be pierced “And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and pleas for mercy, so that, when they look on me, on him whom they have pierced, they shall mourn for him, as one mourns for an only child, and weep bitterly over him, as one weeps over a firstborn. Zech. 12:10 But one of the soldiers pierced his side with a spear, and at once there came out blood and water. John 19:34

12 Psalm 22- pointing them to the Psalm v.1 My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” that is, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” Matthew 27:46

13 Psalm 22- scorned by men v. 6-7, But I am a worm and not a man, scorned by mankind and despised by the people. 7 All who see me mock me; they make mouths at me; they wag their heads; And the people stood by, watching, but the rulers scoffed at him, saying, “He saved others; let him save himself, if he is the Christ of God, his Chosen One!” 36 The soldiers also mocked him, coming up and offering him sour wine 37 and saying, “If you are the King of the Jews, save yourself!” 38 There was also an inscription over him, “This is the King of the Jews.” 39 One of the criminals who were hanged railed at him, saying, “Are you not the Christ? Save yourself and us!” Luke 23:35-39

14 Psalm 22- His heart is turned to water v. 14, I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint; my heart is like wax; it is melted within my breast; But one of the soldiers pierced his side with a spear, and at once there came out blood and water. John 19:34

15 Psalm 22- thirsts in his death v. 15, my strength is dried up like a potsherd, and my tongue sticks to my jaws; you lay me in the dust of death. After this, Jesus, knowing that all was now finished, said (to fulfill the Scripture), “I thirst.” John 19:28

16 Psalm 22- hands and feet pierced v. 16, For dogs encompass me; a company of evildoers encircles me; they have pierced my hands and feet And when they came to the place that is called The Skull, there they crucified him, and the criminals, one on his right and one on his left. Luke 23:33

17 Psalm 22- people stare and gloat v. 17, I can count all my bones— they stare and gloat over me; 35 And the people stood by, watching, but the rulers scoffed at him, … 36 The soldiers also mocked him, Luke 23:35-36

18 Psalm 22- garments divided, lots cast v. 18, they divide my garments among them, and for my clothing they cast lots. 23 When the soldiers had crucified Jesus, they took his garments and divided them into four parts, one part for each soldier; also his tunic. But the tunic was seamless, woven in one piece from top to bottom, 24 so they said to one another, “Let us not tear it, but cast lots for it to see whose it shall be.” This was to fulfill the Scripture which says,“They divided my garments among them, and for my clothing they cast lots.” John 19:23-24

19 Isaiah 53 - the man of sorrows v. 3, He was despised and rejected by men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief; a nd as one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not. And he began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders and the chief priests and the scribes and be killed… Mk. 8:31 Then he said to them, “My soul is very sorrowful, even to death… Mt. 26:38 And those who passed by derided him, wagging their heads … So also the chief priests, with the scribes and elders, mocked him, … 44 And the robbers who were crucified with him also reviled him … Mt. 27:39-44

20 Isaiah 53 - would be wounded for us v. 5, But he was wounded for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his stripes we are healed. But when they came to Jesus and saw that he was already dead, they did not break his legs. 34 But one of the soldiers pierced his side with a spear, and at once there came out blood and water. 35 He who saw it has borne witness—his testimony is true, and he knows that he is telling the truth—that you also may believe. John 19:33-35

21 Isaiah 53 - would pay a price for us v. 6, All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all. 28 even as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Matthew 20:28

22 Isaiah 53 - would make no defense v. 7, He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth; like a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and like a sheep that before its shearers is silent, so he opened not his mouth. But Jesus remained silent. And the high priest said to him, “I adjure you by the living God, tell us if you are the Christ, the Son of God.” Matthew 26:63

23 Isaiah 53 - stricken for our sins v. 8, By oppression and judgment he was taken away; and as for his generation, who considered that he was cut off out of the land of the living, stricken for the transgression of my people? For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, 1 Corinthians 15:3

24 Isaiah 53 - assigned a grave with the rich v. 9, And they made his grave with the wicked and with a rich man in his death, although he had done no violence, and there was no deceit in his mouth. When it was evening, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who also was a disciple of Jesus. 58 He went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. Then Pilate ordered it to be given to him. 59 And Joseph took the body and wrapped it in a clean linen shroud 60 and laid it in his own new tomb, which he had cut in the rock. And he rolled a great stone to the entrance of the tomb and went away. Matthew 27:57-60

25 Isaiah 53 - would intercede for transgress. v. 12, H e poured out his soul to death and was numbered with the transgressors;yet he bore the sin of many, and makes intercession for the transgressors. And Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” And they cast lots to divide his garments. Luke 23:34

26 Objections to be Considered Could it have been a coincidence? Could the gospel have been altered? Could they have been intentionally fulfilled? Could Christians be misusing prophetic texts?

27 Concerning this salvation, the prophets who prophesied about the grace that was to be yours searched and inquired carefully, 11 inquiring what person or time the Spirit of Christ in them was indicating when he predicted the sufferings of Christ and the subsequent glories. 1 Peter 1:10-11 knowing this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture comes from someone's own interpretation. 21 For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit. 2 Peter 1:20-21

28 Objections to be Considered Could it have been a coincidence? Could the gospel have been altered? Could they have been intentionally fulfilled? Could Christians be misusing prophetic texts? Here’s the key… Luke 24:44 everything written about me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled Then he said to them, “These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with you, that everything written about me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled.”
