Messianic Prophecies


Did Yeshua (Jesus) appear out of nowhere?  Or were his birth, ministry, death and resurrection foretold by Moshe (Moses) and the prophets? If he wasn’t the Messiah than He wasn’t a good man, He was a liar. However if He was telling the truth, than He was the Messiah. If He was the Messiah, than His appearance had to have been foretold.

In the Tenach there are hundred’s of places that speak of an anointed one, also known as the Messiah. Some are obvious. Many are less obvious. The following are a few of the more obvious Messianic prophecies:

Did the Messiah need to be rejected or was he supposed to begin an immediate restoration of the Kingdom of Israel?

“The Stone which the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone. This was the L-rd’s doing; and it is marvelous in our eyes.” (Psalms 118:22-23)

“He is despised and rejected of men, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.” (Isaiah 53:3)

Was The Messiah supposed to be God in the flesh or an ordinary man?

“Therefore the L-rd Himself will give you a sign: Behold the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, an shall call His name Immanuel (God with us).” (Isaiah 7:14)

“For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty G-d, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace There will be no end, Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, To order it and establish it with judgment and justice From that time forward, even forever.The zeal of the L-RD of hosts will perform this.” (Isaiah 9:6-7)

Was the Messiah’s birth predicted?

“But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of you shall come forth to Me the One to be Ruler in Israel, whose goings forth are from of old, from everlasting.” (Micah 5:2)

What about this “New Covenant”? Is that in the Bible?

“Behold, the days are coming, says the L-rd, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah - - not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt. My covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them, says the L-rd. But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, days the L-rd: I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts: and I will be their G-d, and they shall be My people. No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know the L-rd’ for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the L-rd. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.” (Jeremiah 31:31-34)

Is there anywhere in the Bible that says the Messiah was to die for our sins? Is there a literal description of the Messiah in the Bible?

"Who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the L-RD been revealed? For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant, And as a root out of dry ground. He has no form or comeliness; and when we see Him, There is no beauty that we should desire Him. He is despised and rejected by men, A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.

Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed. 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.

He was oppressed and He was afflicted, Yet He opened not His mouth; He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, So He opened not His mouth. He was taken from prison and from judgment, and who will declare His generation? For He was cut off from the land of the living; for the transgressions of my people He was stricken. And they made His grave with the wicked--But with the rich at His death, Because He had done no violence, nor was any deceit in His mouth.

Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise Him; He has put Him to grief. When You make His soul an offering for sin, He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in His hand. 1He shall see the labor of His soul, and be satisfied. By His knowledge My righteous Servant shall justify many, For He shall bear their iniquities. Therefore I will divide Him a portion with the great, And He shall divide the spoil with the strong, Because He poured out His soul unto death, And He was numbered with the transgressors, And He bore the sin of many, And made intercession for the transgressors." ( Isaiah 53)
