OT –> NT Messianic Prophecies

Here is a list (which I am extending, editing, adding to and removing from) of prophecies of the then-coming-Messiah and corresponding fulfillment in the NT.

You will see I have highlighted some scriptures with this *** I (personally) plan to work my way through these scriptures because they outline the impact of His death on the cross. And – IMO – it’s His full atoning death that will bring change to this world, not our best laid plans.

*** this symbol indicates that I plan to focus on these scriptures to understand the fullness of what Jesus Christ did for this world. He took ALL sin, paid for ALL sin, died in the place of EVERY PERSON. It is finished/done. It simply needs to be received.

Or let me put it this way… for as long as we hear but don’t mix the message with faith, that is how long we will continue to not receive.

He did it. We simply have to believe that He did.

One response to “OT –> NT Messianic Prophecies

  1. This is extraordinary, Mark! Thanks for taking the time to do this.


    Hi brother Bill.

    I wish I could take the credit, but I didn’t write this up. However, it is public domain information and I would like to see us all using it as a baseline that we can add our own observations to. I will be adding mine and removing some of those that are in there because they are flaky or inaccurate. As I said, a baseline to work from.

    God bless!
