Prophecies of the Messiah

Prophecies of the Messiah

When Messiah comes how will we know him? Where will he be born? What kind of life will he live? Will he be a king or a politician, a prophet or a priest? Will he be received by the world or rejected? Will he be human or superhuman?

Please click on topics below. Each category features a prophecy from the Hebrew Scriptures, and quotations from the B’rit Hadasha (the New Testament) showing how the prophecy has been fulfilled. Some categories have a relevant quotation from other Jewish writings, and all have a comment about the fulfilment (if no author is acknowledged then the author is someone associated with the Israelight Centre). We have tried to keep the quotations and comments to a minimum, because we want the prime focus to be on the text of Holy Scripture, but we believe that some word of explanation is helpful.
