Prophecies of Christ’s First Advent

PDFODT

I did not create this list of prophecies regarding Christ. But I found it useful and wish to share it.

It does not take into account all the Old Testament types. For example: Moses as a type of Christ (leader), Joseph as a type of Christ (saviour), Job as a type of Christ (sufferer), the Song of Solomon as a picture of Christ’s love with His Church, and so forth. That would be a lot more comprehensive, for the whole Bible testifies of Christ:

Psalm 40
6 Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears hast thou opened: burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not required.
7 Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of Me.

Matthew 26
56 All this was done, that the Scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled.

John 20
31 These are written, that you might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you might have life through his name.

  1. The Promised Messiah

      25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.
      26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.
      27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

      Luke 3
      21 Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened,

      John 1
      1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
      2 The same was in the beginning with God.
      3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
      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.

  2. His Nativity and Early Years
    1. The Fact

      Genesis 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.

      Isaiah 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.

      Matthew 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.
      19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily.
      20 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.
      21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins.
      22 Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,
      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.

    2. The Place

      Numbers 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.
      19 Out of Jacob shall come he that shall have dominion, and shall destroy him that remaineth of the city.

      Micah 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.

      Matthew 2
      1 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,
      4 And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born.
      5 And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet,
      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.

    3. Descent into Egypt

      Hosea 11
      1 When Israel was a child, then I loved him, and called my son out of Egypt.

      Matthew 2
      13 And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him.
      14 When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt:
      15 And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son.

    4. The Star out of Jacob

      Numbers 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.

      Matthew 2
      1 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,
      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.
      3 When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.
      4 And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born.
      5 And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet,
      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.
      7 Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, enquired of them diligently what time the star appeared.
      8 And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also.
      9 When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was.
      10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.
      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.
      12 And being warned of God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way.
      13 And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him.

    5. Massacre of Innocents

      Jeremiah 31
      15 Thus saith the Lord; A voice was heard in Ramah, lamentation, and bitter weeping; Rahel weeping for her children refused to be comforted for her children, because they were not.

      Matthew 2
      16 Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently inquired of the wise men.
      17 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet, saying,
      18 In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.

  3. His Mission and Office
    1. His Forerunner

      Isaiah 30
      3 Therefore shall the strength of Pharaoh be your shame, and the trust in the shadow of Egypt your confusion.

      Matthew 3
      1 In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea,
      2 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
      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.
      4 And the same John had his raiment of camel’s hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey.
      5 Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judaea, and all the region round about Jordan…

    2. His Mission

      Genesis 12
      3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

      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.

      Numbers 24
      19 Out of Jacob shall come he that shall have dominion, and shall destroy him that remaineth of the city.

      20 And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the Lord.

      Jeremiah 33
      15 In those days, and at that time, will I cause the Branch of righteousness to grow up unto David; and he shall execute judgment and righteousness in the land.
      16 In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely: and this is the name wherewith she shall be called, The Lord our righteousness.

      Acts 3
      22 For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you.

    3. A Priest Like Mechizedek

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

      Hebrews 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.
      6 As he saith also in another place, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.

    4. A Prophet Like Moses

      Deuteronomy 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;

      Luke 24
      44 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.

      John 1
      17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.

      John 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.
      14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
      15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
      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.

      John 5
      45 Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust.
      46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me.
      47 But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?

      John 6
      31 Our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat.
      32 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven.
      33 For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world.
      34 Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread.
      35 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.

      Acts 3
      22 For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you.
      23 And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people.
      24 Yea, and all the prophets from Samuel and those that follow after, as many as have spoken, have likewise foretold of these days.
      25 Ye are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, And in thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed.
      26 Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.

    5. Conversion of the Gentiles

      Isaiah 11
      10 And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.

      Isaiah 42
      1 Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.

      Isaiah 49
      6 And he said, It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth.

      Isaiah 60
      3 And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.

      Hosea 2
      23 And I will sow her unto me in the earth; and I will have mercy upon her that had not obtained mercy; and I will say to them which were not my people, Thou art my people; and they shall say, Thou art my God.

      Joel 2
      32 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.

    6. His Ministry in Galilee

      Isaiah 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.
      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.

      Matthew 4
      12 Now when Jesus had heard that John was cast into prison, he departed into Galilee;
      13 And leaving Nazareth, he came and dwelt in Capernaum, which is upon the sea coast, in the borders of Zabulon and Nephthalim:
      14 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying,
      15 The land of Zabulon, and the land of Nephthalim, by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles;
      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.

      Matthew 15
      29 And Jesus departed from thence, and came nigh unto the sea of Galilee; and went up into a mountain, and sat down there.

      Matthew 17
      22 And while they abode in Galilee, Jesus said unto them, The Son of man shall be betrayed into the hands of men:

      Matthew 26
      32 But after I am risen again, I will go before you into Galilee.

      Matthew 28
      7 And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.

      Mark 1
      39 And he preached in their synagogues throughout all Galilee, and cast out devils.

      Luke 4
      14 And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the region round about.

      John 2
      1 And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there:
      2 And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage.
      11 This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.

    7. His Miracles

      Isaiah 42
      7 To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.

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

      John 11
      1 Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha.
      11 These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep.
      12 Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well.
      13 Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep.
      14 Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead.
      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.
      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.
      43 And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.
      44 And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go.
      45 Then many of the Jews which came to Mary, and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on him.

    8. His Spiritual Graces

      John 1

      15 And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers’ money, and overthrew the tables;
      16 And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father’s house an house of merchandise.

      15 And said unto them, What will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver.
      16 And from that time he sought opportunity to betray him.
      47 And while he yet spake, lo, Judas, one of the twelve, came, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and elders of the people.
      48 Now he that betrayed him gave them a sign, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he: hold him fast.
      49 And forthwith he came to Jesus, and said, Hail, master; and kissed him.
      50 And Jesus said unto him, Friend, wherefore art thou come? Then came they, and laid hands on Jesus and took him.
      51 And, behold, one of them which were with Jesus stretched out his hand, and drew his sword, and struck a servant of the high priest’s, and smote off his ear.
      52 Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.
      53 Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?
      54 But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?
      55 In that same hour said Jesus to the multitudes, Are ye come out as against a thief with swords and staves for to take me? I sat daily with you teaching in the temple, and ye laid no hold on me.
      56 But all this was done, that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled. Then all the disciples forsook him, and fled.

      31 And Jacob said, Sell me this day thy birthright.
      32 And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me?
      33 And Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he sware unto him: and he sold his birthright unto Jacob.
      34 Then Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentiles; and he did eat and drink, and rose up, and went his way: thus Esau despised his birthright.

      Exodus 21 (the price of a slave)
      28 If an ox gore a man or a woman, that they die: then the ox shall be surely stoned, and his flesh shall not be eaten; but the owner of the ox shall be quit.
      29 But if the ox were wont to push with his horn in time past, and it hath been testified to his owner, and he hath not kept him in, but that he hath killed a man or a woman; the ox shall be stoned, and his owner also shall be put to death.
      30 If there be laid on him a sum of money, then he shall give for the ransom of his life whatsoever is laid upon him.
      31 Whether he have gored a son, or have gored a daughter, according to this judgment shall it be done unto him.

      5 And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself.
      6 And the chief priests took the silver pieces, and said, It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury, because it is the price of blood.
      7 And they took counsel, and bought with them the potter’s field, to bury strangers in.
      8 Wherefore that field was called, The field of blood, unto this day.
      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;

      8 He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.

      5 Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats:
      6 And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening.
      7 And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it.

      40 Then took they the body of Jesus, and wound it in linen clothes with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury.
      41 Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden; and in the garden a new sepulchre, wherein was never man yet laid.
