The Old Testament provides us many Bible prophecies related to the death of Jesus Christ. The table below will show you where they occur in the Old Testament and where in the New Testament we see them fulfilled.
The Bible was written in another time but yet it's timeless. The Bible
was written to another people with a different culture, yet it applies
to all people who will ever, or have ever, lived.
So it's important for us to understand the greatest story in the history of the world and in the life of every person, including you. We hope these Bible prophecies help you deepen your faith in the reality of Jesus Christ.
But what Jesus said about Himself had deep roots in the Old Testament scriptures. During His life on earth, Jesus was thought to be the Messiah (John 4:29, Mark 8:29), which the New Testament writers confirmed after His death (Matthew 1:17, Ephesians 5:2).
Messiah is a transliteration of the Hebrew word meaning “anointed one” which was translated into Greek as Christos. “Christ” or Messiah is therefore a name admirably suited to express both the church’s link with Israel through the OT and the faith that sees in Jesus Christ the worldwide scope of the salvation in Him.
But the claims Jesus made about Himself aren't the only proof we have for His identity; in fact, in the eyes of some there's far more convincing proof that Jesus was who He said He was - the fulfilled prophecies.
