Prophecies concerning Jesus

The expectation of a Messiah was not alone confined to the Jews, but was also shared by the surrounding pagan nations. Seutonius, the celebrated Roman historian, says: "An ancient and settled persuasion prevailed throughout the East that the Fates had decreed some one to proceed from Judea who should attain universal empire" And Tacitus, says: "Many were persuaded that it was contained in the ancient books of their priests that at the very time the East should prevail and that some one should proceed from Judea and possess the kingdom." Vergil (70-19 BC); his epilogues, poems in which shepherds usually provide the dialogue... His fourth epilogue tells of the coming birth of a child whose advent had been foretold by the Cumaean sibly and who would bring to the world an age of peace and happiness. The dead sea scrolls brings the message of the "teacher of righteousness" to come.

Prophecies concerning Jesus in the Bible. Psalms 24:9- (Triumphal Entry) "Lift up your head, oh ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of Glory shall come in." Zechariah. "Behold, your king comes unto you, He is just and having salvation; lowly and riding upon an ass." Psalms 68:18 (Ascension) "You have ascended on high; you have led captivity captive: you have received gifts for men; yea, for the rebellious also, that the Lord God might dwell among them" (compare Eph. 4.8). And John 6:62-: "What and if you shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before? It is the spirit the quickens; the flesh profits nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life." Psalms 22 contains the most accurate description of the crucifixion in the Bible.

Isaiah 53: (Scourging) "Who has believed our report... He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with our grief; and we hid as it were our faces from Him; he was despised, and we esteemed Him not. Surely He has born our griefs, and carried our sorrows, yet we did esteem Him stiricken, smitten of God and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement of our peace was upon Him and with His stripes we are healed." (Redemption) All we like sheep have gone astray, we have turned every one to his own way and the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all." (Trial) "He was oppressed and He was afflicted yet He opened not His mouth, He is brought as a lamb to the slaughter and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so He opens not His mouth." (Sacrifice) "Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise Him, He has put Him to grief, when You shall make His soul an offering for sin, He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in His hand... He was numbered with the transgressors, and He bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors."

Micah 5:2, (Born in Bethlehem) "But you, Bethlehem Ephratah, though you be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of you shall He come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel, whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting."
[383, 402, 403]
