Old Testament Prophecies About Jesus Christ

February 15, 2008

Josh McDowell in his classic, Evidence that Demands a Verdict, states that there are more than 300 references to the Messiah in the Old Testament that were fulfilled in the person of Jesus Christ.  No other religious figure of any religion can claim anything like this.  What does this say about the person and nature of Jesus Christ. 

In our next class we will examine a few of these references and consider their implications.

Here is a chart taken from the Ryrie Study Bible that lists a few of the Old Testament references and their New Testament fulfillment.
