Jews for Jesus has curated 40 of the most helpful messianic prophecies along with their New Testament fulfillments.

Curated by Rich Robinson, Senior Researcher
After Yeshua (Jesus) was crucified, some of his followers were crushed. They had hoped that he would be the Messiah who would destroy the tyranny of Rome and restore the kingdom of Israel. But their idea of the Messiah was not God’s idea. Yeshua died, but he also rose from the dead, and to his disappointed followers he said:

“How foolish you are, how slow you are to believe everything the prophets said!  Was it not necessary for the Messiah to suffer these things and then to enter his glory?” And Jesus explained to them what was said about himself in all the Scriptures, beginning with the books of Moses and the writings of all the prophets…. They said to each other, “Wasn’t it like a fire burning in us when he talked to us on the road and explained the Scriptures to us?” (Luke 24:25–27 NIVLuke 24:32 NIV)

“To suffer these things and then to enter his glory.” He had to first die as an atonement for our sins, and then rise from the dead – as the prophets of the Hebrew Bible had said.

We invite you to explore these passages from the Jewish Scriptures and their fulfillments in the life of Yeshua.
