Messianic Prophecies and Fulfillments
The study of scripture which prophecies of Jesus Christ is one of the greatest assurances of His identity and His mission. There are over 300 prophecies in the Old Testament about the Messiah. Following are a handful that can be used to show His identity as that Messiah. The mathematical probablility of Jesus's fulfillment of only half of these shown here (much less the 300+ in total) is such that you can be more sure that Jesus is the Messiah than you can be that you are you!
