When a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the word does not come
to pass or come true, that is a word which the LORD has not spoken; the
prophet has spoken it presumptuously, you need not be afraid of him.
Deuteronomy 18:22

Jesus fulfilled over 300 prophecies himself regarding the arrival of the
Messiah to Israel. The chance of any one person fulfilling just 8 of those
prophecies is a billion to one.

Below is a partial list of Old Testament Prophecies that Jesus specifically
fulfilled (Taken from The Beginning of the End, John Hagee, pp 61-83).

1.
The Messiah will be born of a woman: When Adam and Eve sinned in
the Garden of Eden, God the Father made this statement to Satan:  "And I
will put enmity between you (Satan) and the woman, and between your
offspring and hers; he will crush your head (destroy you), and you will strike
his heel"  (Gen 3:15 NIV)

Fulfillment: "But when the time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of
woman, born under law." (Gal. 4:4 NIV) Historically, the Bible refers to
children through the "seed" of a man. This passage illustrates that the seed
was the power of the Holy Spirit and not a man.

2.

give you a sign: a virgin will be with child and bear a son, and she will call His
name Immanuel." (Isaiah 7:14 NASB)

nations on earth will be blessed through him." (Genesis 12:3)

Fulfillment: "The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the Son of David,
the Son of Abraham" (Matt. 1:1) and "The promises were spoken to
Abraham and to his seed. The Scripture does not say 'and to seeds,' meaning
many people, but 'and to your seed,' meaning one person, who is Christ."
(Galatians 3:16 NIV)

from Judah, nor the ruler's staff from between his feet, until he comes to
whom it belongs and the obedience of the nations is his." (Genesis 49:10 NIV)

Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus who is called Christ"

Uriah...and Jacob begot Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born
Jesus who is called Christ." (Matthew 1:6, 16). and "Jesus...the son of
David,..." (Luke 3:23, 31)

10.
The Messiah will be born in Bethlehem: "But as for you, Bethlehem
Ephrathah, too little to be among the clans of Judah, from you One will go

things consist." (Col 1;17)

110:1 NASB)

Fulfillment: "Then Jesus answered and said, while He taught in the temple,
'How is it that the scribes say that the Christ is the Son of David? For David
himself said by the Holy Spirit: "The LORD said to my Lord, 'Sit at My right
hand, till I make Your enemies Your footstool.'" Therefore David himself
calls Him "Lord"; how is He then his Son?' And the common people heard
him gladly." (Mark 12:35-37)

15.
The Messiah shall be called Immanuel (God with us): "Therefore the
Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, a virgin will be with child and bear
a son, and she will call His name Immanuel." (Isaiah 7:14 NASB)

Fulfillment: "Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they
shall call his name Immanuel, which is translated, 'God with us.' Then

NASB) and "During the days of Jesus' life on earth, he offered up prayers
and petitions with loud cries and tears to the one who could save him from
death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission. Although he was
a son, he learned obedience from what he suffered and, once made perfect,
he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him and was
designated by God to be high priest in the order of Melchizedek." (Hebrews
5:7-10 NIV)

18.
The Messiah shall be a judge: "For the LORD is our Judge, the LORD
is our Lawgiver, the LORD is our King; He will save us." (Isaiah 33:22)

heavens, saying 'This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well-pleased.'"
(Matthew 3:16-17 NASB)

house has eaten me up, and the reproaches of those who reproach You have
fallen on me." (Psalms 69:9)

to Jerusalem. And He found in the temple those who sold oxen and sheep
and doves, and the moneychangers doing business. When he had made a
whip of cords, He drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and the
oxen, and poured out the changers' money and overturned the tables. And He
said to those who sold doves, 'Take these things away! Do not make My

by the way of the sea, on the other side of Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles."
(Isaiah 9:1 NASB)

departed to Galilee. And leaving Nazareth, He came and dwelt in Capernaum,
which is by the sea, in the regions of Zebulun and Naphtali, that it might be
fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying: 'The land of
Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, by the way of the sea, beyond the Jordan,
Galilee of the Gentiles: The people who sat in darkness have seen a great
light, and upon those who sat in the region and shadow of death light has
dawned.' From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, 'Repent, for the
kingdom of heaven is at hand.'" (Matthew 4;12-17)

for the Messiah) will open my mouth in a parable; I will utter dark sayings of
old." (Psalms 78:2). and: "And He said, 'Go, and tell this people: "Keep on
hearing, but do not understand; keep on seeing, but do not perceive." Make
the heart of this people dull, and their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest
they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their
heart, and return and be healed.'" (Isaiah 6:9-10)

Fulfillment: "All these things Jesus spoke to the multitude in parables; and
without a parable He did not speak to them, that it might be fulfilled which
was spoken by the prophet, saying: 'I will open My mouth in parables; I will
utter things kept secret from the foundation of the world.'" (Matthew
13:34-35). and: "Then His disciples asked Him saying, 'What does this
parable mean?' and He said, 'To you it has been given to know the mysteries
of the kingdom of God, but to the rest it is given in parables, that "Seeing
they may not see, and hearing they may not understand."'" (Luke 8:9-10)

26.
The Messiah will enter the temple: "And the Lord, whom you seek, will
suddenly come to His temple." (Malachi 3:1)

Fulfillment: "Then Jesus went out and departed from the temple, and His
disciples came up to show Him the buildings of the temple. And Jesus said to
them, 'Do you not see all these things? Assuredly, I say to you, not one stone
shall be left here upon another, that shall not be thrown down.'" (Matthew
24:1-2)

27.

daughter of Zion! Shout in triumph, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your
king is coming to you; He is just and endowed with salvation, humble, and
mounted on a donkey, even on a colt, the foal of a donkey." (Zechariah 9:9
NASB)

Fulfillment: "Now when they drew near Jerusalem, and came to Bethpage, at
the Mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, 'Go into
the village opposite you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied, and a
colt with her. Loose them and bring them to Me. And if anyone says anything
to you, you shall say, "The Lord has need of them," and immediately he will
send them.' All this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by
the prophet, saying: 'Tell the daughter of Zion, "Behold, your King is coming
to you, lowly, and sitting on a donkey, a colt, the foal of a donkey."' So the
disciples went and did as Jesus commanded them. They brought the donkey
and the colt, laid their clothes on them, and set Him on them." (Matthew

Zion a chief cornerstone, elect, precious, and he who believes on Him (Jesus)
will by no means be put to shame.' Therefore, to you who believe, He is

rock of offense.'" (1 Peter 2:6-8)

29.

bring out prisoners from the prison, those who sit in darkness from the prison
house." (Is. 42:6-7)

Gentiles, and the glory of Your people Israel." (Luke 2:32)

30.

whom I trusted, who ate my bread, has lifted up his heel against me." (Psalm
41:9 NASB)

Fulfillment: "I (Jesus) do not speak concerning all of you. I know whom I
have chosen; but that the Scripture may be fulfilled, 'He who eats bread with
Me has lifted up his heel against Me.' Now I tell you before it comes, that
when it does come to pass, you may believe that I am He...Most assuredly, I
say to you, one of you will betray Me." (John 13:18-19,21). and "Judas
Iscariot, who also betrayed Him." (Matthew 10:4)

31.

them, 'If it is good in your sight, give me my wages; but if not, never mind!'

you? And they counted out to him thirty pieces of silver. So from that time
he sought opportunity to betray Him." (Matthew 26: 14-16)

He answered nothing." (Matthew 27:12)

through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the
chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, and by His scourging we are

Jesus, he delivered Him to be crucified." (Matthew 27:26)

and My feet." (Psalm 22:16).

Fulfillment: "And when they came to a place called Golgotha, there they
crucified Him." (Luke 23:33 NASB). This prediction was made long before
crucifixion was invented as a form of capital punishment. The Psalmist wrote
this prophecy over a thousand years before crucifixion was made common by
the Romans, and the Jews never practiced crucifixion.

poured out Himself to death, and was numbered with the transgressors."

from whom men hide their face, He was despised, and we did not esteem
him." (Isaiah 53:3 NASB)

Fulfillment: "Then Pilate, when had called together the chief priests, the
rulers, and the people said to them, 'You have brought this Man to me, as
one who misleads the people. And indeed, having examined Him in your
presence, I have found no fault in this Man concerning those things of which
you accuse him; no, neither did Herod, for I sent you back to him; and
indeed nothing deserving of death has been done by Him. I will therefore
chastise Him and release Him' (for it was necessary for him to release one to
them at the feast). ....And he released to them the one they had requested,
who for rebellion and murder had been thrown into prison; but he delivered
Jesus to their will." (Luke 23:13-18, 21-25).

38.
The Messiah's side will be pierced: "They will look on Me whom they
pierced." (Zech. 12:10)

Fulfillment: "But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear." (John
19:34)

received Him out of their sight." (Acts 1:9 NASB)

The recording of history with regard to the Old Testament Prophecies is
thorough and accurate to say the least.  Jesus doesn't narrowly fit the bill as
the Messiah--there can be no question to anyone who has the ability to
reason soundly. I hope you seek him--You will not be disappointed!

For every one who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who
knocks it will be opened.
