Chapter 2 - Prophecies fulfilled in Jesus Christ

Only a few of the prophecies concerning Jesus have been listed here. There are many more, hundreds in fact; not even including the ones (mostly from the book of Revelation) that have not been fulfilled yet. The prophecies fulfilled in Christ are too numerous to fully discuss them all in a short book such as this. I am listing some of them with scriptural references so that you may study them in detail if you wish.

The major categories of Messianic prophecy (prophecy concerning Jesus Christ) can be described as:

  • The lineage of Jesus
  • The Godlike attributes of Jesus
  • Things Jesus did
  • Things that were done to Jesus

I have listed a few from all these categories here.
