Read Isaiah 53

Jesus Foretold

Before Jesus came to this earth, there were people who were expecting Him. People that had read the Old Testament prophecies and knew that God would send someone to save His people.When Jesus came, some people recognized Him because of the prophecies they had read. After His death, when His gospel was preached around the world, others came to believe because of these very prophecies.Jesus fulfilled more than 300 Old Testament prophecies! What are the odds of a man even fulfilling just a few prophecies? Very slim indeed. What are the odds of fulfilling more than 300 prophecies? Astronomical.

Isaiah 53:5
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
