Messianic Prophecies of the Old Testament-Verses
[Home] [Site map] [Updates] [Projects] [ Messianic Prophecies of the Old Testament-Topics]
These are verses on messianic prophecies that I have meditated on in my morning `quiet time.' I have placed them in chronological order (the prophets as listed in Merrill, E.H., "An Historical Survey of the Old Testament," Craig Press: Nutley NJ, 1966, p.268). When completed, I may in the future group them under topics, and add my comments to them. The Bible version is the New International Version (NIV) unless otherwise indicated.

- Lk 18:31-33: 31Jesus took the Twelve aside and told them, "We are going up to Jerusalem, and everything that is written by the prophets about the Son of Man will be fulfilled. 32He will be handed over to the Gentiles. They will mock him, insult him, spit on him, flog him and kill him. 33On the third day he will rise again." [Ps 22; Zec 13:7]
- Lk 24:25-27,44: 25He said to them, "How foolish you are, and how slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken! 26Did not the Christ have to suffer these things and then enter his glory?" 27And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself. 44He said to them, "This is what I told you while I was still with you: Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets and the Psalms."
