Jesus fulfilled over 100 Old Testament prophecies of what the coming Jewish Messiah would do and be like. As a matter of fact 28 prophecies were fulfilled at Jesus’ crucifixion alone.

Here are just a few…

Bible Prophecy: Psalm 41:9 says, “Even my close friend, whom I trusted, he who shared my bread, has lifted up his heel against me.”

Fulfillment: Mark 14:10 says, “Then Judas Iscariot, one of the Twelve, went to the chief priests to betray Jesus to them.”

Bible Prophecy: Zec 11:12 “…So they paid me thirty pieces of silver.”

Fulfillment: Matthew 26:14-16 says, “…Judas Iscariot …What are you willing to give me if I hand him over to you?’ So they counted out for him thirty silver coins.”

Bible Prophecy: Isaiah 53:7 says, “He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth.”

Fulfillment: Mark 15:5 says, “But Jesus still made no reply, and Pilate was amazed.”

Bible Prophecy: Psalm 22:1-2 says, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? Why are you so far from saving me, so far from the words of my groaning? O my God, I cry out by day, but you do not answer, by night, and am not silent.”

Fulfillment: Matthew 27:46 says, “About the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice, ‘Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?’ – which means, ‘My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?'”

Bible Prophecy: Psalms 69:21 “They also gave me gall for my food, And for my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.”

Fulfillment: Matthew 27:48 says, “Immediately one of them ran and got a sponge. He filled it with wine vinegar, put it on a stick, and offered it to Jesus to drink.”

Bible Prophecy: Psalm 22:17-18 says, “…They divide my garments among them and cast lots for my clothing.”

Fulfillment: John 19:23-24 says, “…they took his clothes, dividing them into four shares, one for each of them, with the undergarment remaining…“Let us not tear it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be…”

Jesus could not have intentionally fulfilled these prophecies on His own. He was and is God’s Messiah, the Savior of the World.
