Old Testament Prophecies concerning Jesus Christ, The Messiah

Below is a short list of the Old Testament prophecies concerning Jesus Christ, which were fulfilled in Christ. There are many more but this should suffice for the time to prove that no mere man could have come on the scene and fulfilled them to the letter. Jesus is in the Old Testament concealed, and in the New Testament Revealed.

  33. He would be seated at the Father’s right hand. Psalm 110:1

There is a New Testament fulfillment of each of these prophecies of Jesus Christ, Messiah. These are not all of the Messianic prophecies.
It is our prayer that many will come to know the Lord Jesus Christ as personal Saviour. Please read Isaiah 9:6


May God bless you is our prayer.
Pastor Humphries,
Psalm 27
