Messiah is the Seed of Abraham
"In your seed all the nations of the earth will be blessed
— because you obeyed My voice.”
The Messiah would be from the Tribe of Judah, to be David’s Son and a King
"The scepter will not depart from Judah
, nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet, until he to whom it belongs shall come and the obedience of the nations shall be his."
The Messiah in Human Flesh, Born of a Virgin
"Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.
The Messiah was to be Born at Bethlehem
“But you, Bethlehem
Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times
The Messiah Commenced Ministry in Galilee
Nevertheless, there will be no more gloom for those who were in distress. In the past he humbled the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, but in the future he will honor Galilee of the nations
, by the Way of the Sea, beyond the Jordan— 2
The people walking in darkness
have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned."
The Messiah Performed Miracles
Then will the eyes of the blind be opened and the ears of the deaf unstopped. 6
Then will the lame leap like a deer, and the mute tongue shout for joy. Water will gush forth in the wilderness and streams in the desert."
Israel did not Believe in the Messiah
Who has believed our message
and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? 2
He grew up before him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of dry ground. He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him. 3 He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain.
Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem."
The Messiah’s Suffering was for Our Sins
Isaiah 53:4-6, 12
Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. 5 But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. 6
We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all."
Therefore I will give him a portion among the great, and he will divide the spoils with the strong, because he poured out his life unto death, and was numbered with the transgressors. For he bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.
The Messiah was a Suffering Lamb of God
" 7 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 its shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth. 8
By oppression and judgment he was taken away
. Yet who of his generation protested? For he was cut off from the land of the living
; for the transgression of my people he was punished."
The Messiah’s Side was Pierced
"And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication. They will look on me, the one they have pierced
, and they will mourn for him as one mourns for an only child, and grieve bitterly for him as one grieves for a firstborn son."
The Messiah was Buried with the Rich
"He was assigned a grave
with the wicked, and with the rich in his death
, though he had done no violence, nor was any deceit in his mouth."
The Messiah Resurrected from the Dead
Yet it was the Lord’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer, and though the Lord makes his life an offering for sin, he will see his offspring and prolong his days, and the will of the Lord will prosper in his hand. 11 After he has suffered, he will see the light of life and be satisfied
; by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many, and he will bear their iniquities."
The Messiah's Ascension and Sitting at the Right Hand of the Father
"A psalm of David. The Lord says to my lord: “Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet.
