Prophecies of Jesus in the Old Testament

There are many scriptures written by prophets of God long before the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ, which foretold the coming of Jesus, the King of Kings, into the world.

These scriptures are not always written in simple and easy-to-understand language. Many of them are written in highly metaphorical expressions; but they are all beautifully written and describe the highest point of God’s holy word: the coming of His Son to save the world.

In the book of Genesis, God says to the serpent, “I will put enmity between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise thy head, and you shall bruise His heel”.

The expression “bruise His heel” means that the works of the devil will cause temporary death and suffering to Jesus, the Redeemer and the son of Mary. The expression “bruise your head” means that Jesus the redeemer will put an everlasting end to the works and power of the devil.

This scripture was fulfilled when Jesus paid the price on the cross to redeem man from the wages of sin.

The Psalmist David made several references to Jesus in his Psalms. He spoke of a King whose throne will be established forever.

And he also spoke of a Son who will rule from coast to coast and for whom prayers will be made continually.

Who Hath Believed Our Report? (Prophecies of Jesus)

In the book of Isaiah, we are told of one who “shall grow up before us as a tender plant; and when we see Him; we shall say ‘what of Him’. He hath no form nor comeliness that we should look upon Him.”

Isaiah also spoke about a man upon whose shoulders the government shall be, to establish it forever, with the glory of God His end.

“He hath done no wrong; yet it pleased the Lord to bruise Him. Yet He was wounded for our transgressions; bruised for our iniquities and by His stripes we are made whole.”

“He was oppressed and afflicted; yet He opened not His mouth; but as a lamb before its shearers are dumb; so he came to the slaughter.”

If you put it under the microscope you will see that no human being can fulfill any of these scriptures and that they are clearly prophecies of Jesus.
