What Do We Know About Jesus?


What Do We Know About Jesus?

Our Text:

Joh 13:15  For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.
Joh 13:16  Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him.
Joh 13:17  If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.

If Jesus is to be our example we need to know all we can about Him!

A.) His last name is not Christ:

The Title “Christ” appears 553 times in the New Testament. The title Christ is from the Greek word “Christos” which means “anointed. The Messiah. Christ is the anointed of God prophesied in the Old Testament. The One True Messiah.

G5547 Christos
khris-tos’
From G5548; anointed, that is, the Messiah, an epithet of Jesus: – Christ.

The human name “Jesus” was given to him at birth because the angel Gabriel said to do this.

Luk 1:26  And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,

Luk 1:30  And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.
Luk 1:31  And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.

G2424 Ie¯sous
ee-ay-sooce’
Of Hebrew origin [H3091]; Jesus (that is, Jehoshua), the name of our Lord and two (three) other Israelites: – Jesus.

The name is used 977 times in the New Testament.

In Hebrew Jesus would have been called Joshua.

B.) The title “Lord” as in “Lord Jesus” is used only one time in the Gospels and this by Luke on the day of the resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Luk 24:3  And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.

The title “Lord Jesus Christ” is used 85 times in the New Testament.

The title “Lord” is used 747 times in the New Testament.

G2962 kurios
koo’-ree-os
From kuros (supremacy); supreme in authority, that is, (as noun) controller; by implication Mr. (as a respectful title): – God, Lord, master, Sir.

When we say Our Lord Jesus Christ then we are saying ” Jesus who is supreme in authority, our Master who is the promised Messiah of God, God Himself in the flesh.

This title fits because that is who He is!

What are we supposed to do with this information?

Paul says:

Rom 13:14  But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.

If we can look like Jesus then God cannot see us for what we are “sinners”. We cannot look like Jesus until we have been washed in His “blood”. God will look through the innocent blood of His Own Son and see us as sin free just like Jesus.

1.) To Those that Preach God’s Word He says:

Act 20:28  Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased [with his own blood].

2.) To those that think they no another way to Heaven He says:

Heb 9:12  Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by [his own blood] he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.

3.) To those that think sanctification comes from somewhere or someone else He says:

Heb 13:12  Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with [his own blood], suffered without the gate.

4.) To those that think they can face a Holy God without Him He says:

Rev 1:5  And from Jesus Christ, [who is the faithful witness], and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,

5.) There is truly only one way to Heaven!

Joh 14:6  Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: [no man cometh unto the Father, but by me].
Joh 14:7  If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: [and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him].

The Lord Jesus Christ is God that came down from Heaven so that we can be saved!

Isa 7:14  Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

H6005 imma^nu^’e^l
im-maw-noo-ale’
From H5973 and H410 with suffix pronoun inserted; with us (is) God; Immanuel.

What do we know about Jesus? If he is our example we need to know all we can.

I.) His Human Nature:

The “miracle” of the “virgin” birth was not the actual birth of Christ, the Messiah, but it was the “conception of Christ in a “human” body!

The Bible say that Jesus was as much God as if He had never been man and He was as much man as if He had never been God.

If Jesus the human is to be our example then we need to learn all we can about Him.

1.) Jesus had human parents:

Luk 1:31  And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.

Gal 4:4  But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,

Joseph was a parent to Jesus but he was not His Father:

Mat 1:16  And Jacob begat Joseph [the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus], who is called Christ.

The Bible says:

Mat 1:18  Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, [before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost].

This is the miracle of the “Virgin Birth”.

2.) Jesus had a body, a soul and a spirit just as we all do.

a.) Body:

Mat 26:12  For in that [she hath poured this ointment on my body], she did it for my burial.

b.) Soul:

Joh 12:27  [Now is my soul troubled]; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour.

Mat 26:38  Then saith he unto them, [My soul is exceeding sorrowful], even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.

c.) Spirit:

Mar 2:8  And immediately when [Jesus perceived in his spirit] that they so reasoned within themselves, he said unto them, Why reason ye these things in your hearts?

Luk 23:46  And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, [Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit]: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.

3.) Jesus looked to be human in fact He looked like a Jewish man:

Joh 4:9  Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, [How is it that thou, being a Jew], askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.

He did not look like an old man.

Joh 8:57  Then said the Jews unto him, [Thou art not yet fifty years old], and hast thou seen Abraham?

He looked like a gardener.

Joh 20:15  Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? [She, supposing him to be the gardener], saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.

4.) Jesus was flesh and blood not like the angels.

Heb 2:14  [Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same]; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;

5.) Jesus started as a babe in a manger but other people watched him grow into an adult:

Luk 2:40  And [the child grew], and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him.

6.) Jesus asked questions to get a response from others.

Luk 2:46  And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and [asking them questions].

7.) Jesus increased in wisdom in His human nature.

Luk 2:52  And [Jesus increased in wisdom and stature], and in favour [with God and man].

8.) Jesus prayed and He prayed often.

Mar 1:35  And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, [he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed].

Notice He loved closet prayer.

Mat 6:6  But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

Luk 11:1  And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.

He also prayed with others.

9.) Jesus was tempted of Satan.

Mat 4:1  Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness [to be tempted of the devil].

Heb 2:18  For in that [he himself hath suffered being tempted], he is able to succour them that are tempted.

Heb 4:15  For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; [but was in all points tempted like as we are, (yet without sin)].

10.) Jesus learned obedience:

Heb 5:8  Though he were a Son, [yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered];

11.) Jesus got hungry:

Mat 4:2  And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, [he was afterward an hungred].

Mat 21:18  Now in the morning as he returned into the city, [he hungered].

12.) Jesus got thirsty:

Joh 4:7  There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: [Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink].

Joh 19:28  After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, [that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst].

13.) Jesus got weary:

Joh 4:6  Now Jacob’s well was there. Jesus therefore, [being wearied with his journey], sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour.

14.) Jesus slept just as humans do:

Mat 8:24  And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: [but he was asleep].

We can see He slept peacefully.

15.) Jesus expressed love for those around Him.

Mar 10:21  Then Jesus beholding him [loved him], and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.

You do not see a lustful love but natural love for each other. This world is missing this love more and more every day.

God calls it “agape love”.

G25 a??apa´? agapao¯
ag-ap-ah’-o
Perhaps from a?´?a? agan (much; or compare [H5689]); [to love (in a social or moral sense)]: – (be-) love (-ed). Compare G5368.

16.) Jesus had compassion for others, even those he had not ever met:

Mat 9:36  [But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them], because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.

17.) Jesus got angry when people were abused and used man’s laws to stop good from happening and it grieved Him:

Mar 3:5  And [when he had looked round about on them with anger], [being grieved for the hardness of their hearts], he saith unto the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it out: and his hand was restored whole as the other.

18.) Jesus cried, He wept with compassion for others:

Joh 11:33  When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled,
Joh 11:34  And said, Where have ye laid him? They said unto him, Lord, come and see.
Joh 11:35  Jesus wept.

He cried for His nation He lived in.

Luk 19:41  And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it,
Luk 19:42  Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes.
Luk 19:43  For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side,
Luk 19:44  And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation.

19.) Jesus also had some joyful happy times:

Heb 12:2  Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; [who for the joy that was set before him] endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Jesus didn’t get joy from dying on that cross but He did get joy from making sure my debt and your debt were paid.

Luk 10:21  In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; [for so it seemed good in thy sight].

I believe Jesus had all around Him rolling in the floor when He told this story:

Luk 18:25  For it is easier for a camel to go through a needle’s eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

I believe He was talking about a full size camel and an actual needle of that time.

20.) Jesus was troubled with things that went on around Him:

Joh 11:33  When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, [he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled],

Joh 12:27  [Now is my soul troubled]; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour.

Joh 13:21  When Jesus had thus said, [he was troubled in spirit], and testified, and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me.

Mar 14:33  And he taketh with him Peter and James and John, and began to be sore amazed, and to be very heavy;
Mar 14:34  And saith unto them, [My soul is exceeding sorrowful unto death: tarry ye here, and watch].

Notice Jesus wanted other humans to be near Him in these times.

21.) Jesus suffered from the things of this world:

1Pe 4:1  Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin;

Notice He suffered for the Church.

22.) Jesus bled real blood:

Joh 19:34  But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, [and forthwith came there out blood and water].

23.) Jesus died a real death:

Mat 27:50  Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, [yielded up the ghost].

1Co 15:3  For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, [how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures];

There was no New Testament at that time so Paul was saying according to the Old Testament scriptures.

24.) Jesus was buried in a real tomb:

Mat 27:59  And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth,
Mat 27:60  And laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock: and he rolled a great stone to the door of the sepulchre, and departed.

You would find it real hard to see anything other than a true human being that went through life like most all others except for one thing. There is not another human that ever lived that went through all these things and yet never did anything wrong morally or against the scriptures. Jesus never sinned!

To be God Jesus had to show us proof that He was God and not human!

II.) The Divine Nature of Jesus.

1.) Jesus was omnipotent:

Omnipotent means to have unlimited power.

Mat 28:18  And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

a.) Jesus had power over disease:

Mat 8:1  When he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed him.
Mat 8:2  And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.
Mat 8:3  And [Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed].
Mat 8:4  And Jesus saith unto him, See thou tell no man; but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.

Luk 4:39  And [he stood over her, and rebuked the fever; and it left her: and immediately she arose and ministered unto them].

Now if one of those false prophets that say they have this power come into your area take them to nearest hospital and clear all the rooms of the ill people. You will see only Jesus had this power until He allowed the Apostles limited powers.

b.) Jesus had power over demon:

Mat 8:16  When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and [he cast out the spirits with his word], and healed all that were sick:
Mat 8:17  That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.

We can see the reason Jesus did these things was to fulfill prophecy.

Mat 8:28  And when he was come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, there met him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way.
Mat 8:29  And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time?
Mat 8:30  And there was a good way off from them an herd of many swine feeding.
Mat 8:31  So the devils besought him, saying, If thou cast us out, suffer us to go away into the herd of swine.
Mat 8:32  And [he said unto them, Go. And when they were come out], they went into the herd of swine: and, behold, the whole herd of swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea, and perished in the waters.

An evil demon need to possess some flesh to have any power. Notice they also drove the swine mad as they had those two men.

Luk 4:35  And [Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. And when the devil had thrown him in the midst, he came out of him, and hurt him not].

c.) Jesus had power over men:

Mat 9:9  And as Jesus passed forth from thence, he saw a man, named Matthew, sitting at the receipt of custom: and [he saith unto him, Follow me. And he arose, and followed him].

Joh 17:2  [As thou hast given him power over all flesh], [that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him].

d.) Jesus had power over nature:

Mat 8:26  And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? [Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm].

e.) Jesus had the power over sin:

Mat 9:1  And he entered into a ship, and passed over, and came into his own city.
Mat 9:2  And, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee.
Mat 9:3  And, behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves, This man blasphemeth.
Mat 9:4  And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts?
Mat 9:5  For whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and walk?
Mat 9:6  But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house.
Mat 9:7  And he arose, and departed to his house.
Mat 9:8  But when the multitudes saw it, they marvelled, and glorified God, which had given such power unto men.

f.) Jesus had the power over foolish traditions:

Mat 9:10  And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at meat in the house, behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat down with him and his disciples.
Mat 9:11  And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto his disciples, Why eateth your Master with publicans and sinners?
Mat 9:12  But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.
Mat 9:13  But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
Mat 9:14  Then came to him the disciples of John, saying, Why do we and the Pharisees fast oft, but thy disciples fast not?
Mat 9:15  And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber mourn, as long as the bridegroom is with them? but the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, and then shall they fast.
Mat 9:16  No man putteth a piece of new cloth unto an old garment, for that which is put in to fill it up taketh from the garment, and the rent is made worse.
Mat 9:17  Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.

g.) Jesus had the power over death:

Luk 7:14  And he came and touched [the bier: and they that bare him stood still. And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise].
Luk 7:15  And [he that was dead sat up, and began to speak]. And he delivered him to his mother.

This the only man that ever walked home from his own funeral!

Luk 8:54  And he put them all out, and took her by the hand, and called, saying, Maid, arise.
Luk 8:55  And [her spirit came again, and she arose straightway]: and he commanded to give her meat.
Luk 8:56  And her parents were astonished: but he charged them that they should tell no man what was done.

This child was raised just before her funeral. The Jew buried their dead the same day that they died.

Joh 11:4  When Jesus heard that, he said, [This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby].

Joh 11:21  Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.
Joh 11:22  But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee.
Joh 11:23  Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again.
Joh 11:24  Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.
Joh 11:25  Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
Joh 11:26  And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?

Joh 11:39  Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days.
Joh 11:40  Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?
Joh 11:41  Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.
Joh 11:42  And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me.
Joh 11:43  And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.

The Jew had a belief that it may be possible to raise some from the dead up to three days but no amount of power could raise the dead after four days because the flesh would start to deteriorate.

Jesus put an end to that nonsense. Jesus will raise every saint of God to rejoin their spirit on the day of the rapture of the Church.

1Th 4:13  But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
1Th 4:14  For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
1Th 4:15  For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
1Th 4:16  For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
1Th 4:17  Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

One day, four days, four hundred days, four thousand days it will not make any difference!

2.) Jesus was omniscient:

Omniscient means Jesus had knowledge of all things. He was all seeing with infinite knowledge of not only this universe but His entire creation.

a.) He knew where Nathaniel had been.

Joh 1:48  Nathanael saith unto him, Whence knowest thou me? Jesus answered and said unto him, Before that Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee.

b.) He knew how Judas plotted to betray Him.

Joh 6:70  Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?

Joh 13:11  For he knew who should betray him; therefore said he, Ye are not all clean.

c.) Jesus knew the hearts of the Pharisees.

Mat 12:25  And [Jesus knew their thoughts], and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:

Luk 5:22  But when [Jesus perceived their thoughts], he answering said unto them, What reason ye in your hearts?

Luk 6:8  But [he knew their thoughts], and said to the man which had the withered hand, Rise up, and stand forth in the midst. And he arose and stood forth.

Luk 7:39  Now when the Pharisee which had bidden him saw it, he spake within himself, saying, This man, if he were a prophet, would have known who and what manner of woman this is that toucheth him: for she is a sinner.
Luk 7:40  [And Jesus answering said unto him, Simon, I have somewhat to say unto thee]. And he saith, Master, say on.

d.) Jesus knew the thoughts of the scribes.

Mat 9:3  And, behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves, This man blasphemeth.
Mat 9:4  And [Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts]?

e.) Jesus knew how close one scribe was to being saved by his thoughts.

Mar 12:32  And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he:
Mar 12:33  And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.
Mar 12:34  And [when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God]. And no man after that durst ask him any question.

f.) Jesus knew the history of the Samaritan woman.

Joh 4:29  Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ?

g.) Jesus knew the problems of His disciples.

Luk 9:46  Then there arose a reasoning among them, which of them should be greatest.
Luk 9:47  And [Jesus, perceiving the thought of their heart], took a child, and set him by him,

Jesus retained every bit of His deity while He was on this Earth but He voluntarily abstained from using it, that He might be totally dependent on the Holy Spirit as he expects us to be. Jesus by this would not use all His power in certain areas.

3.) Jesus was omnipresent:

Omnipresent means Jesus is present in all places at the same time. Only God has this power. Not man, not any angel and not Satan the devil nor his demon.

Mat 18:20  For where two or three are gathered together in my name, [there am I in the midst of them].

No matter where they are gathered!

Mat 28:20  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, [lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world]. Amen.

No matter where you go teaching!

Joh 3:13  And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but [he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven].

Jesus says he was still in Heaven even when He was on this earth in that body of flesh!

Joh 14:20  At that day ye shall know [that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you].

Jesus says the day you are saved He comes to live inside of each believer.

4.) Jesus is worshipped as God:

a.) By the angels:

Heb 1:6  And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And [let all the angels of God worship him].

b.) By the shepherds:

Luk 2:15  And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the [shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us].

c.) By the wise men:

Mat 2:2  Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for [we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him].

Mat 2:11  And [when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him]: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.

d.) By a leper:

Mat 8:2  And, behold, [there came a leper and worshipped him], saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.

e.) By a ruler:

Mat 9:18  While he spake these things unto them, behold, [there came a certain ruler, and worshipped him], saying, My daughter is even now dead: but come and lay thy hand upon her, and she shall live.

f.) By a Gentile woman:

Mat 15:25  [Then came she and worshipped him], saying, Lord, help me.

g.) By a mother:

Mat 20:20  [Then came to him the mother of Zebedee’s children with her sons, worshipping him,] and desiring a certain thing of him.

h.) By a maniac:

Mar 5:2  And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit,
Mar 5:3  Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains:
Mar 5:4  Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him.
Mar 5:5  And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones.
Mar 5:6  [But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him],

i.) By a man born blind:

Joh 9:32  Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind.
Joh 9:33  If this man were not of God, he could do nothing.
Joh 9:34  They answered and said unto him, Thou wast altogether born in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they cast him out.
Joh 9:35  Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God?
Joh 9:36  He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I might believe on him?
Joh 9:37  And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and it is he that talketh with thee.
Joh 9:38  And he said, [Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him].

j.) By Thomas a disciple and future Apostle:

Joh 20:28  And Thomas answered and said unto him, [My Lord and my God].

k.) By some Greeks:

Joh 12:20  And there were certain Greeks among them [that came up to worship] at the feast:
Joh 12:21  The same came therefore to Philip, which was of Bethsaida of Galilee, and [desired him, saying, Sir, we would see Jesus].

l.) By His Apostles:

Mat 14:33  [Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God].

5.) Jesus forgave the sin of some:

Mar 2:5  When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, [Son, thy sins be forgiven thee].

and they said:

Mar 2:7  Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? [who can forgive sins but God only]?

and Jesus said:

Mar 2:10  [But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins], (he saith to the sick of the palsy,)
Mar 2:11  I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy bed, and go thy way into thine house.

6.) Jesus will judge all humans:

Joh 5:22  For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:

7.) Jesus is the only Savior:

Mat 18:11  For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.

Joh 10:28  And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

Joh 3:16  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Joh 14:6  Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Now we know only God could do all these things but to be the the Messiah then this man named Jesus who had the power of God would have to fulfill the prophesies of the Old Testament.

III.) Jesus the Messiah:

1.) The virgin birth:

Gen 3:15  And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and [her seed]; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

This is the first prophecy (good news) about a Messiah(Christ). The phrase “her seed” concerns Mary, the mother of Jesus alone and points to the virgin birth.

Mat 1:16  And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, [of whom] was born Jesus, who is called Christ.

This means Jesus was born without participation from Joseph.

2.) The line of Shem:

Gen 9:26  And he said, Blessed be [the LORD God of Shem]; and Canaan shall be his servant.

This verse means that true religion would come from the line of Shem.

The term “LORD” stands for Jehovah which refers to the revelation of Jesus and His redeeming power.

The phrase the God of Shem means God has chosen a peculiar people, to do His will.

3.) The line of Abraham:

Gen 12:2  And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and [make thy name great]; and thou shalt be a blessing:

This tells us further that it is from the line of Abraham from which the Messiah will come.

Mat 1:1  The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.

Gal 3:16  Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.

4.) The line of Isaac:

Gen 17:19  And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and [I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him].

Mat 1:2  Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat Judas and his brethren;

5.) The line of Jacob:

The blessing is narrowed down even further.

Gen 25:23  And the LORD said unto her, [Two nations are in thy womb, and two manner of people] shall be separated from thy bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and [the elder shall serve the younger].

Gen 28:10  And Jacob went out from Beersheba, and went toward Haran.
Gen 28:11  And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all night, because the sun was set; and he took of the stones of that place, and put them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep.
Gen 28:12  And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it.
Gen 28:13  And, behold, [the LORD stood above it, and said, I am the LORD God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac: the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed];

Num 24:17  I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: [there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel], and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth.

We see the Scepter will come from Jacob.

Rom 9:10  And not only this; but when Rebecca also had conceived by one, even by our father Isaac;
Rom 9:11  (For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth;)
Rom 9:12  It was said unto her, The elder shall serve the younger.
Rom 9:13  As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.

6.) The line of Judah:

Gen 49:10  [The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be].

This verse makes reference that the Messiah will be King.

This verse also explains that Judah will sustain a lineage until Shiloh comes. Shiloh (a man of rest) or the Messiah, the peacemaker.

Heb 4:9  There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.

A man of peace:

Psa 72:7  In his days shall the righteous flourish; and abundance of peace so long as the moon endureth.

Jer 23:6  In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.

Zec 9:9  Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.
Zec 9:10  And I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim, and the horse from Jerusalem, and the battle bow shall be cut off: and he shall speak peace unto the heathen: and his dominion shall be from sea even to sea, and from the river even to the ends of the earth.

Until Shiloh comes means: “until He comes to whom it belongs”.

7.) The line of David:

2Sa 7:12  And when thy days be fulfilled, and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, [I will set up thy seed after thee, which shall proceed out of thy bowels, and (I will establish) his kingdom].

This means a descendant of David would have an everlasting dynasty. His rule would be eternal.

Psa 89:1 I will sing of the mercies of the LORD for ever: with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations.
Psa 89:2  For I have said, Mercy shall be built up for ever: thy faithfulness shalt thou establish in the very heavens.
Psa 89:3  I have made a covenant with my chosen, I have sworn unto David my servant,
Psa 89:4  [Thy seed will I establish for ever, and build up thy throne to all generations]. Selah.
Psa 89:5  And [the heavens shall praise thy wonders, O LORD: thy faithfulness also in the congregation of the saints].
Psa 89:6  [For who in the heaven can be compared unto the LORD? who among the sons of the mighty can be likened unto the LORD?
Psa 89:7  God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints, and to be had in reverence of all them that are about him].
Psa 89:8  O LORD God of hosts, who is a strong LORD like unto thee? or to thy faithfulness round about thee?
Psa 89:9  Thou rulest the raging of the sea: when the waves thereof arise, thou stillest them.
Psa 89:10  Thou hast broken Rahab in pieces, as one that is slain; thou hast scattered thine enemies with thy strong arm.
Psa 89:11  The heavens are thine, the earth also is thine: as for the world and the fulness thereof, thou hast founded them.
Psa 89:12  The north and the south thou hast created them: Tabor and Hermon shall rejoice in thy name.
Psa 89:13  Thou hast a mighty arm: strong is thy hand, and high is thy right hand.
Psa 89:14  Justice and judgment are the habitation of thy throne: mercy and truth shall go before thy face.
Psa 89:15  Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O LORD, in the light of thy countenance.
Psa 89:16  In thy name shall they rejoice all the day: and in thy righteousness shall they be exalted.
Psa 89:17  For thou art the glory of their strength: and in thy favour our horn shall be exalted.
Psa 89:18  For the LORD is our defence; and the Holy One of Israel is our king.
Psa 89:19  [Then thou spakest in vision to thy holy one, and saidst, I have laid help upon one that is mighty; I have exalted one chosen out of the people].

8.) How would all this take place?

a.) Isa 7:14  Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

God provided a sign for all to know the truth:

Mat 1:21  And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
Mat 1:22  Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,
Mat 1:23  Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

b.) Mic 5:2  But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.

God promised the exact place of birth for all to know!

Mat 2:6  And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.

9.) There would be a forerunner:

Isa 40:3  The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.

We know this was John the Baptist.

Mat 3:1  In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea,
Mat 3:2  And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
Mat 3:3  For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.

Joh 1:23  He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias.

We know that Malachi reinforced what Isaiah said.

Mal 3:1  Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts.

10.) The Messiah would have a mission:

Isa 61:1  The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
Isa 61:2  To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;
Isa 61:3  To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.

Luke wrote of Jesus:

Luk 4:18  The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
Luk 4:19  To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.

Jesus then said:

Luk 4:20  And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him.
Luk 4:21  And he began to say unto them, [This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears].

How would some see this Messiah:

Isa 9:1  Nevertheless the dimness shall not be such as was in her vexation, when at the first he lightly afflicted the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, and afterward did more grievously afflict her by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, in Galilee of the nations.
Isa 9:2  The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined.

You see this was not in Jerusalem.

Mat 4:13  And leaving Nazareth, he came and dwelt in Capernaum, which is upon the sea coast, in the borders of Zabulon and Nephthalim:
Mat 4:14  That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying,
Mat 4:15  The land of Zabulon, and the land of Nephthalim, by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles;
Mat 4:16  The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up.
Mat 4:17  From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

11.) The Messiah would have a ministry:

a.)Isa 53:4  Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.

Fulfilled:

Mat 8:17  That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.

b.) Isa 35:5  Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
Isa 35:6  Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert.

Fulfilled:

Mat 11:5  The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them.
Mat 11:6  And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.

c.) Isa 42:2  He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street.
Isa 42:3  A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth.
Isa 42:4  He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law.

This would be nothing like the Pharisees and Sadducees were.

Fulfilled:

Mat 12:19  He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets.
Mat 12:20  A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgment unto victory.
Mat 12:21  And in his name shall the Gentiles trust.

12.) The Messiah would teach a certain way:

Psa 78:2  I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old:
Psa 78:3  Which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us.

Fulfilled by Jesus:

Mat 13:35  That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.

13.) The Messiah would present Himself in certain ways:

a.)Zec 9:9  Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.

Fulfilled by Jesus:

Mat 21:5  Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass.

b.)Psa 118:25  Save now, I beseech thee, O LORD: O LORD, I beseech thee, send now prosperity.
Psa 118:26  Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the LORD: we have blessed you out of the house of the LORD.

Fulfilled by Jesus:

Mat 21:9  And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the Son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest.

c.) Psa 110:1 The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.
Psa 110:2  The LORD shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.

Fulfilled:

Mat 22:44  The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool?
Mat 22:45  If David then call him Lord, how is he his son?

14.) The Messiah would be rejected:

a.) Psa 118:22  The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner.

Fulfilled in Jesus:

Mat 21:42  Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?

b.) Isa 29:13  Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:

Fulfilled in Jesus:

Mat 15:8  This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
Mat 15:9  But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

c.) Zec 13:7  Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the LORD of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones.

Fulfilled in Jesus:

Mat 26:31  Then saith Jesus unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered abroad.

d.) Jer 18:1  The word which came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying,
Jer 18:2  Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words.

Jer 19:1  Thus saith the LORD, Go and get a potter’s earthen bottle, and take of the ancients of the people, and of the ancients of the priests;
Jer 19:2  And go forth unto the valley of the son of Hinnom, which is by the entry of the east gate, and proclaim there the words that I shall tell thee,
Jer 19:3  And say, Hear ye the word of the LORD, O kings of Judah, and inhabitants of Jerusalem; Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will bring evil upon this place, the which whosoever heareth, his ears shall tingle.
Jer 19:4  Because they have forsaken me, and have estranged this place, and have burned incense in it unto other gods, whom neither they nor their fathers have known, nor the kings of Judah, and have filled this place with the blood of innocents;
Jer 19:5  They have built also the high places of Baal, to burn their sons with fire for burnt offerings unto Baal, which I commanded not, nor spake it, neither came it into my mind:
Jer 19:6  Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that this place shall no more be called Tophet, nor The valley of the son of Hinnom, but The valley of slaughter.
Jer 19:7  And I will make void the counsel of Judah and Jerusalem in this place; and I will cause them to fall by the sword before their enemies, and by the hands of them that seek their lives: and their carcases will I give to be meat for the fowls of the heaven, and for the beasts of the earth.
Jer 19:8  And I will make this city desolate, and an hissing; every one that passeth thereby shall be astonished and hiss because of all the plagues thereof.
Jer 19:9  And I will cause them to eat the flesh of their sons and the flesh of their daughters, and they shall eat every one the flesh of his friend in the siege and straitness, wherewith their enemies, and they that seek their lives, shall straiten them.
Jer 19:10  Then shalt thou break the bottle in the sight of the men that go with thee,
Jer 19:11  And shalt say unto them, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Even so will I break this people and this city, as one breaketh a potter’s vessel, that cannot be made whole again: and they shall bury them in Tophet, till there be no place to bury.
Jer 19:12  Thus will I do unto this place, saith the LORD, and to the inhabitants thereof, and even make this city as Tophet:
Jer 19:13  And the houses of Jerusalem, and the houses of the kings of Judah, shall be defiled as the place of Tophet, because of all the houses upon whose roofs they have burned incense unto all the host of heaven, and have poured out drink offerings unto other gods.
Jer 19:14  Then came Jeremiah from Tophet, whither the LORD had sent him to prophesy; and he stood in the court of the LORD’S house; and said to all the people,
Jer 19:15  Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will bring upon this city and upon all her towns all the evil that I have pronounced against it, because they have hardened their necks, that they might not hear my words.

Jer 32:6  And Jeremiah said, The word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
Jer 32:7  Behold, Hanameel the son of Shallum thine uncle shall come unto thee, saying, Buy thee my field that is in Anathoth: for the right of redemption is thine to buy it.
Jer 32:8  So Hanameel mine uncle’s son came to me in the court of the prison according to the word of the LORD, and said unto me, Buy my field, I pray thee, that is in Anathoth, which is in the country of Benjamin: for the right of inheritance is thine, and the redemption is thine; buy it for thyself. Then I knew that this was the word of the LORD.
Jer 32:9  And I bought the field of Hanameel my uncle’s son, that was in Anathoth, and weighed him the money, even seventeen shekels of silver.

Zec 11:12  And I said unto them, If ye think good, give me my price; and if not, forbear. So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver.
Zec 11:13  And the LORD said unto me, Cast it unto the potter: a goodly price that I was prised at of them. And I took the thirty pieces of silver, and cast them to the potter in the house of the LORD.

Fulfilled in Jesus:

Mat 27:9  Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying, And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of him that was valued, whom they of the children of Israel did value;
Mat 27:10  And gave them for the potter’s field, as the Lord appointed me.

If we cannot tell by now that there is absolutely no way for any one human being to fulfill all these things then we must accept that the Lord Jesus Christ is exactly whom He says He is.

And yet there is more:

IV.) Jesus the One that Would Suffer for Us ALL:

a.) The Messiah would suffer for the Sin of the World:

Psa 22:1 My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?
Psa 22:2  O my God, I cry in the daytime, but thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent.

Fulfillment in Jesus:

Mat 27:46  And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

b.) He would be ridiculed:

Psa 22:7  All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying,
Psa 22:8  He trusted on the LORD that he would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him.

Fulfillment in Jesus:

Mat 27:39  And they that passed by reviled him, wagging their heads,

Mat 27:43  He trusted in God; let him deliver him now, if he will have him: for he said, I am the Son of God.

c.) His hands and feet would be pierced:

Psa 22:16  For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet.

Fulfillment in Jesus:

Joh 20:25  The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.

d.) He would have no broken bones:

Psa 22:17  I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me.

Psa 34:20  He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken.

Fulfillment:

Joh 19:33  But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs:
Joh 19:34  But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.
Joh 19:35  And he that saw it bare record, and his record is true: and he knoweth that he saith true, that ye might believe.
Joh 19:36  For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken.

e.) Soldiers gambled for His clothing:

Psa 22:18  They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.

Fulfillment in Jesus:

Joh 19:24  They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be: that the scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, They parted my raiment among them, and for my vesture they did cast lots. These things therefore the soldiers did.

f.) The Messiah would pray for His tormenters:

Psa 22:24  For he hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; neither hath he hid his face from him; but when he cried unto him, he heard.

Fulfillment in Jesus:

Mat 26:39  And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.

Heb 5:7  Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared;
Heb 5:8  Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;
Heb 5:9  And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;

Luk 23:34  Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.

g.) He would be disfigured:

Isa 52:14  As many were astonied at thee; his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men:

Isa 50:6  I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair: I hid not my face from shame and spitting.

Fulfillment in Jesus:

Joh 19:1  Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged him.

h.) He was scourged and He would died:

Isa 53:5  But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

Isa 53:11  He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.
Isa 53:12  Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

Gen 3:15  And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

Fulfillment in Jesus:

Joh 19:1  Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged him.

Joh 19:18  Where they crucified him, and two other with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst.

i.) He would be resurrected:

Psa 16:9  Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.
Psa 16:10  For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.
Psa 16:11  Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

Act 2:22  Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:
Act 2:23  Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain:

V.) Prophet, Priest, and Coming King.

1.) He would be a prophet:

Deu 18:15  The LORD thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken;
Deu 18:16  According to all that thou desiredst of the LORD thy God in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, Let me not hear again the voice of the LORD my God, neither let me see this great fire any more, that I die not.

2.) He is would be Priest:

Psa 110:4  The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.

Fulfilled in Jesus Christ:

Heb 5:5  So also Christ glorified not himself to be made an high priest; but he that said unto him, Thou art my Son, to day have I begotten thee.
Heb 5:6  As he saith also in another place, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.
Heb 5:7  Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared;
Heb 5:8  Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;
Heb 5:9  And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;
Heb 5:10  Called of God an high priest after the order of Melchisedec.

3.) He will return as King:

Num 24:17  I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth.

Psa 2:1  Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
Psa 2:2  The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,
Psa 2:3  Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
Psa 2:4  He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.
Psa 2:5  Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.
Psa 2:6  Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.
Psa 2:7  I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.
Psa 2:8  Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.

This will be fulfilled by the Second Coming of the Messiah, Jesus Christ Our Lord:

Rev 19:11  And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
Rev 19:12  His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
Rev 19:13  And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
Rev 19:14  And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
Rev 19:15  And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
Rev 19:16  And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

There is so much more for us to learn about Our Master. To learn about Him we must start in the Book of Genesis and learn of Him through the Book of Revelation.

The Bible Says:

Joh 1:1  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Joh 1:2  The same was in the beginning with God.
Joh 1:3  All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
Joh 1:4  In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
Joh 1:5  And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
Joh 1:6  There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
Joh 1:7  The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.
Joh 1:8  He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
Joh 1:9  That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
Joh 1:10  He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
Joh 1:11  He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
Joh 1:12  But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
Joh 1:13  Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
Joh 1:14  And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Let’s Pray with Him for the salvation of all who are lost!
