    There were two primary evidences which the apostles appealed to over and over again to establish the Deity and Messiahship of the Lord Jesus Christ. One was the fact of the resurrection and the other was the Old Testament prophecies which were fulfilled in the life of Jesus Christ.

    Below is a listing of the prophecies written in the Old Testament and given to the Jewish nation so that they might be able to recognize their Messiah.


    A. Concerning His Birth

    1. Born of the seed of woman (Genesis 3:15; Galatians 4:4; Matthew 1:20)

    2. Born of a virgin (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:18, 24, 25)

    3. Son of God (Psalm 2:7; Matthew 3:17)

    4. Seed of Abraham (Genesis 22:18; Matthew 1:1; Galatians 3:16) Here it is determined that the Messiah would be a Jewish descendant.

    5. Son of Isaac (Genesis 21:12; Luke 3:23,34) Abraham had two sons, Isaac and Ishmael. Now God eliminates one half of the lineage of Isaac.

    6. Son of Jacob (Numbers 24:17; Luke 3:23,34) Isaac had two sons, Jacob and Esau. Now God eliminates one half of the lineage of Isaac.

    7. Tribe of Judah (Genesis 49:10; Luke 3:23,33) Jacob had twelve sons and each became a tribe of the Hebrew nation. Now God eliminates eleven-twelfths of the lineage of Jacob.

    8. Family line of Jesse (Isaiah 11:1; Luke 3:23,32) Now God narrows it down even further by picking one family line out of the tribe of Judah.

    9. House of David (Jeremiah 23:5; Luke 3:23,31) Jesse had at least eight sons (I Samuel 16:10,11). Now God eliminates all of Jesse's sons except one, David.

    10. Born at Bethlehem (Micah 5:2; Matthew 2:1) Now God eliminates all the cities in the world except one, Bethlehem.

    11. Presented with gifts (Psalm 72:10; Isaiah 60:6; Matthew 2:1,11)

    12. Herod kills children (Jeremiah 31:15; Matthew 2:16)

    B. Concerning His Nature

    13. His Pre-Existence (Micah 5:2; Colossians 1:17; John 1:1)14.

    14. He shall be called Lord (Psalm 110:1; Luke 20:41-44)

    15. He shall be called Immanuel ("God with us") (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23)

    16. Shall be a prophet (Deuteronomy 18:18; Matthew 21:11)

    17. Shall be a priest (Psalm 110:4; Hebrews 5:5,6)

    18. Shall be a judge (Isaiah 33:22; John 5:30)

    19. Shall be a king (Isaiah 33:22; Matthew 27:37)

    20. Special anointment of the Holy Spirit (Isaiah 11:2; Matthew 3:16,17)

    21. He zeal for God (Psalm 69:9; John 2:15-17)

    C. Concerning His Ministry

    22. Preceded by a messenger (Isaiah 40:3; Matthew 3:1,2)

    23. Ministry to begin in Galilee (Isaiah 9:1,2; Matthew 4:12,13,17)

    24. Ministry of miracles (Isaiah 35:5, 6a; Matthew 9:35)

    25. Teacher of parables (Psalm 78:2; Matthew 13:34)

    26. He was to enter the temple (Malachi 3:1; Matthew 21:12)

    27. He was to enter Jerusalem on a donkey (Zechariah 9:9; Luke 19:35,36,37a)
