Video: Christmas in Light of the Cross, day 6. The Messiah


This study will take the Old Testament prophecies of the Messiah and show the New Testament fulfillment of these in the life and death of Jesus. When Paul approached the Jews about the Messiah, these were probably some of the scriptures He used from the Old Testament.

The place of His birth ————————— Micah 5:2Luke 2:4-7

His virgin birth ——————————- Isaiah 7:14Luke 1:26-31

You know, Joseph thought he had the facts he needed to prove that  Mary had been unfaithful. Still he was wrong. If Joseph could be wrong even with the outstanding evidence he had, is it also possible that we sometimes jump to conclusions and misjudge people also?

The slaughter of the children —– Jeremiah 31:15Matthew 2:16-18

His flight into Egypt ——————– Hosea 11:1Matthew 2:14, 15

The time of His baptism ————- Daniel 9:24, 25Luke 3:1, 21, 22

His rejection by the people ———————- Isaiah 53:3John 1:11

His entrance into Jerusalem ———- Zechariah 9:9Luke 19:29-38

His betrayal by a friend ——————- Psalm 41:9Luke 22:47, 48

The price of His betrayal ———– Zechariah 11:12Matthew 26:15

Spat upon and beaten ——————— Isaiah 50:6Matthew 26:67

Crucified between two thieves ———- Isaiah 53:12Mark 15:27, 28

The wounds in His body ——— Zechariah 12:10John 19:34; 20:27

His words on the cross ———————— Psalm 22:1Mark 15:34

Given vinegar and gall to drink ——– Psalm 69:21Matthew 27:34

Gambling for His clothes ——- Psalm 22:17, 18Matthew 27:35, 36

None of His bones were to be broken — Psalm 34:20John 19:32, 33

To be buried with the rich ———— Isaiah 53:9Matthew 27:57-60

His resurrection ——————————- Psalm 16:10Luke 24:1-7

Seeing how Jesus met all the Old Testament predictions affirms our faith that He is indeed the Messiah. It also affirms our faith in the Bible. Greater yet, it affirms our faith that He will come the second time, just as the Bible promised He would come the first time. There are actually twice as many Bible promises about His second coming than there are about His first.
