Historically Corroborated: Jesus Fulfilled 129 Messianic Prophecies Made in Isaiah 335 Years Earlier


A long post for Good Friday and Easter Sunday. See also related about Jesus’ willing death at Be Thankful For Jesus’ Incredible Self-Control.

Today I shall take you through the dozens of prophecies in the Old Testament book of Isaiah alone, foretelling the coming of the Messiah hundreds of years later… Which Jesus fulfilled to the letter.

Although there are many more prophecies concerning the Messiah throughout the entire Old Testament, I choose to focus on those found in Isaiah.

I will demonstrate in three easy steps how:

1) The book of Isaiah is from at least 100~300 years before Jesus,
2) The book of Isaiah has many prophecies about the Messiah that the New Testmament states Jesus fulfilled,
3) Various evidence attests to the authenticity of the New Testament accounts of Jesus’ life.

In reading the following, I invite readers of all backgrounds – be they atheist or of other religions – to ponder the considerable and weighty evidence for the God-given origin of the Bible and the Messiahship of Jesus.

In particular, I hope that Jewish readers might look back at their original Hebrew scriptures and think about whether Jesus fulfilled enough of the dozens of prophecies Isaiah spoke.

May the good LORD bless the reading of His word.

1) Complete Book of Isaiah dated to be up to 335 years before Jesus

This is the copy of Isaiah found among the Dead Sea Scrolls.

DeadSeaIsaiah

Its contents have been found to be more than 99% exactly the same as our modern Bible’s Isaiah. Therefore, whatever prophecies we find in today’s modern Bibles were also in the original ancient copies.

How ancient?

The University of Arizona Department of Physics used radiocarbon dating and datedthe Dead Sea Scrolls Isaiah to be from between 335 BCE and 122 B.C.E (years before Jesus was born).

That means that secular science has proven that the book of Isaiah – with all its Messianic prophecies included – was completed at the very least 122 years before Jesus fulfilled its prophecies by being born to a virgin.

See also Isaiah in the Dead Sea Scrolls for more reading. 

So the first step has been accomplished, establishing that the Messianic prophecies you will read below are from hundreds of years before Jesus… Even ones copy-pasted from the Internet.

2) At least 129 prophecies found in the Book of Isaiah foretelling events and details that Jesus Christ fulfilled

With 129 prophecies, there are far too many to give an adequate treatment here. So instead, I will cover just one passage from Isaiah – Chapter 53, detailing the circumstances of the Messiah’s death.

I explain in [bolded square brackets] how Jesus fulfilled these details, and you can go to this link for the full text of the corresponding New Testament verses.

Isaiah 53

 1 Who has believed our message
       and to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?

[The Jewish people largely disbelieved Jesus’s claim to be Messiah]

 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.

[Jesus looked like an ordinary human and was born to a poor carpenter]

 3 He was despised and rejected by men,
       a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering.
       Like one from whom men hide their faces
       he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

[The crowds mocked Him and called for Him to be crucified, while Peter denied knowing Him]

 4 Surely he took up our infirmities
       and carried our sorrows,
       yet we considered him stricken by God,
       smitten by him, and afflicted.

[Jesus chose willingly to die ont he cross for all our sins, yet the people of His time considered Him a cursed heretic]

 5 But he was pierced for our transgressions,
       he was crushed for our iniquities;
       the punishment that brought us peace was upon him,
       and by his wounds we are healed.

[Jesus’ hands and feet were pierced by nails in the crucifixion, yet His suffering healed us of our sins]

 6 We all, like sheep, have gone astray,
       each of us has turned to his own way;
       and the LORD has laid on him
       the iniquity of us all.

[Jesus’ sacrifice took all our sins and disobedience upon Himself]

 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 her shearers is silent,
       so he did not open his mouth.

[Jesus did not argue or curse at His accusers at the trial, the flogging, the crucifixion, or even as He gave up His last breath] 

 8 By oppression and judgment he was taken away.
       And who can speak of his descendants?
       For he was cut off from the land of the living;
       for the transgression of my people he was stricken.

[Jesus was judged unfairly by the court of priests, had no physical children and – in the High Priest’s own words – died for the nation]

 9 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.

[Jesus was crucified between two thieves, but after His death was given a tomb by the Pharisee Joseph of Arimathea]

 10 Yet it was the LORD’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer,
       and though the LORD makes his life a guilt offering,
       he will see his offspring and prolong his days,
       and the will of the LORD will prosper in his hand.

[Jesus’ death was analogous to the Mosaic guilt sacrifice of animal life and blood, and He was ressurected and watches over His spiritual children]

 11 After the suffering of his soul,
       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.

[Jesus was resurrected, and accepting Jesus’ offer of salvation cleanses us of our sins]

 12 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.

[Jesus will one day return as the everlasting King]

And that was just one chapter of Isaiah. 

The following list demonstrates how Jesus Christ fulfilled the other various Messianic prophecies found in Isaiah. And remember, as the previous point showed, these prophecies were written down hundreds of years before Jesus was born on Earth.

It has been calculated that for one person to fulfill even forty of the above prophecies by pure chance, the odds are 1 in 10-followed-by-157-zeroes.

(To give you a scale of how imporobable those odds are, there are estimated to be only up to 6 x 10-followed-by-79-zeroes atoms in the entire universe.)

That Jesus manipulated all the events of His life to purposely fit known prophecy is frankly impossible: He could not have chosen who He was born to and where, the events of his baby years and childhood, and the manner in which He died.

———————————–

3) Details of Jesus’ in Gospels corroborated by Biblical and nonBiblical evidence

Soooooooooo Isaiah wrote prophecies about the Messiah at least 100 years before Jesus.

Soooooooooo Jesus seems to have fulfilled them all, at least according to the New Testament.

But how true is the New Testament account?

The following are various arguments and corroborative evidence as to why just three well-known details of Jesus’ life as found in the four Gospels are highly likely to be true and accurate:

Born of a virgin: Various sources attest to the belief that Jesus was not Jospeh’s genetic child. Non-Christians of course assume that only adultery could be the explanation.

  • Rumours among non-followers of Jesus during His lifetime were that He was an illegitimate child, used to mock claims of a ‘virgin birth’. This is the basis for the mockery some Jews directed at Jesus: “We are not illegitimate children. The only Father we have is God himself.” – John 8:41
  • This occurence was also recorded by Greek writer Celsus in a polemic against Christianity, in which he quotes a Roman soldier, Pantheras, as Jesus’ actual father.
  • The Talmud also carries various records, claiming that Mary was an adulteress and Jesus an illegitimate child. (This site, search for ‘mother’.)

Crucifixion: 

  • Jewish historian Josephus  wrote of Jesus that Pilate, upon the accusation of the first men amongst us, condemned him to be crucified…” 
  • Roman historian Tacitus wrote of the founder of the Christian religion: “Christus, from whom the name had its origin, suffered the extreme penalty during the reign of Tiberius at the hands of one of our procurators, Pontius Pilatus.” 
  • Roman-Syrian satirist Lucian wrote that “The Christians, you know, worship a man to this day — the distinguished personage who introduced their novel rites, and was crucified on that account…”
  • The Talmud states the following about Jesus’ following, criminal charges, and method and time of execution: On the eve of the Passover, Yeshu was hanged. Forty days before the execution took place, a herald went forth and cried: “He is going forth to be stoned because he has practiced sorcery and enticed Israel to apostasy. Any one who can say anything in his favour, let him come forward and plead on his behalf.” But since nothing was brought forward in his favour he was hanged on the eve of the Passover. (Hanged can also refer to being hung from a cross by nails.)

Resurrection: The following quotes and circumstances show that, at the very least, the early Christians genuinely believed that Jesus rose from the dead.

  • Jewish historian Josephus wrote of Jesus thatHe appeared to them on the third day, living again, as the divine prophets foretold” (but which is of disputed authenticity).
  • Roman-Syrian satirist Lucian alludes to the belief of Christians that “They are immortal for all time”.
  • The Apostles were wholeheartedly convinced that Jesus really did overcome death and appeared to them, to the point that each of them (minus John, plus Paul) was martyred for their beliefs – which reduces the probability that they invented the resurrection hoax as a profitable scam. Peter for one changed overnight from a fearful man who denied even knowing Jesus, to a bold preacher daring to speak ‘blasphemy’ in public.
  • Luke 24 states that everyone knew about the body of Jesus not being in the tomb (which ties back to Who Could and Would Have Stolen The Body?): Are you only a visitor to Jerusalem and do not know the things that have happened there in these days? They went to the tomb early this morning but didn’t find his body. Then some of our companions went to the tomb and found it just as the women had said, but him they did not see.”

  • Acts 2 has Peter challenging the audience to debunk the claim that Jesus’ body can’t be found in the tomb: “God has raised this Jesus to life, and we are all witnesses of the fact.”

  • 1st Corinthians 15:6 has Paul challenging any living contemporary witnesses to debunk his claim that Jesus was resurrected: “After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep.”

—————————-

CONCLUSION

You have just seen a mere snippet of the overwhelmingly abundant evidence for the Bible and the Messiahship of Jesus.

Out there, floating around on the Net, is even more evidence such as rest of the Messianic prophecies Jesus also fulfilled, the historically dated ages of the corresponding books of the Bible, and the verification of those claims by textual, historical, archaeological and scientific evidence.

This is why as a cynic, skeptic and scientist, I can be a Christian yet be logically and rationally fulfilled.

It is my hope that, by opening your heart and your logical mind, you can come to the same conclusion.

God bless.

  1. Nihal Uduwara Says:

    Impressive…….
    How many prophecies come to pass on the day of Jesus was cruicified?
    Nihal Uduwara

  2. Scott Thong Says:

    Wow… Hard question.

    58 separate prophecies I think, but some on the same details, according to the Messiah Revealed site…

    6 about His betrayal

    3 about His abandonment

    6 about His being despised

    5 about His judgement

    8 or 9 about His suffering

    30 about His crucifixion and death

  3. shidemn Says:

    Scott- im not trying to be mean or “put down” Jesus but if you think about these coming true
    6 about His betrayal

    3 about His abandonment

    6 about His being despised

    5 about His judgement

    8 or 9 about His suffering

    30 about His crucifixion and death

    You could see that most are common knowledge to someone who knows what they were doing, Jesus more than likely knew that there were people, high up religious officials that would want him dead because of what he spread through his words. It’s like if you were to go to (back then) Saddams palace (pick one) and insult him to his face, would you expect not to die? NO, i think nit, I think that yes Jesus “predicted his fate” only because he knew what the concequences were for what he was doing, speaking out basically.

  4. Scott Thong Says:

    True, Jesus could easily have manipulated events to achieve His own betrayal and execution – especially if He had extra-human powers.

    But the details within the details themselves are quite remarkable – for example, while Jesus hung on the cross, He could not personally manipulate the actions of others.

    Yet the following as predicted by the Old Testament came true:

    The soldiers did not break His bones (normally, after enough time the legs of crucified victims would be broken so they wouldn’t be able to lift themselvs up to breathe).

    The soldiers both divided His clothes among themselves, and also gambled for the biggest piece – instead of gambling for all of it, or tearing the largets piece to be divided equally.

    Jesus was offered gall and vinegar as He hung from the cross.

    People specifically said, “He trusted God, let him deliver him.”

    Jesus was executed with criminals but buried by a rich man (remember that all His apostles were jobless).

    All in all, it’s more like spitting in Saddam’s face and then having him kill you in the exact method described in a 600 year old book without him realizing it.

  5. shidemn Says:

    I see your point thanks for that clarification

  6. Scott Thong Says:

    Any time!

  7. Jumanous Says:

    Thanks for that compilation.. the link is dead for the other stuff.
    The more I learn of science and various prophecies, etc the more I know it takes far more faith not to believe.

  8. Scott Thong Says:

    Which links are dead, Jumanous? I’ll try to fix them.

  9. Roy Says:

    I’m sorry, but the vast majority of these “fulfilled prophecies” are vague and meaningless, and could be attributed to anyone, and also a VAST amount of repetition. I see about 20-25 of interest, and even most of those are very very vague. do you disagree with what I’ve written below ? I think it’s important to look honestly on such things. I don’t like half-truths when people say “Jesus fullfilled 129 prophecies !”. I don’t want to disparage anyone, but if prophecies as vague as these were written about some dude in 1900, they could easily be made to fit pretty much anyone alive today (except for the stuff about resurrection etc, which are the things I put in the “of interest” category). Prophecy leaves me fairly cold as it’s so easy to manipulate.

    [Of interest]:
    8. The Messiah would minister in Galilee.
    35. The Messiah would heal the blind.
    53. The Messiah would heal the blind (repeat of 35)
    36. The Messiah would heal the deaf.
    37. The Messiah would heal the lame.
    38. The Messiah would heal the dumb.
    32. The Messiah would defeat death.
    33. Others would rise to life at the resurrection of the Messiah.
    42. The Messiah would be as a shepherd.
    67. The Messiah would come to bring Israel back to God.
    73. The Messiah’s back would be whipped (not much of a prophecy)
    74. The Messiah’s face would be beaten and spit upon (not much of a prophecy)
    80. The Messiah’s face would be disfigured from severe beatings (i’m really TRYING to say this is worthwhile, but how many people were beaten and disfigured. quite a lot …)
    94. The Messiah’s back would be whipped (again, how many people were whipped …)
    99. The Messiah would be silent before his accusers (this is ok. i like stuff like this. this is about as good as the prophecies get, but even this is very very very weak in terms of trying to say this is “PROOF that Jesus was the Son of God”, right ?
    89. The Messiah would have a healing ministry (all the healing ones can be grouped together really).
    101. The Messiah would be confined and persecuted.
    102. The Messiah would be judged (pretty meaningless really. all people are judged)
    103. The Messiah would be killed.
    106. The Messiah would be innocent and had done no violence (this I like, like 99, this is about as good as it gets, but again, pretty wishy-washy and vague).
    107. The Messiah would have no deceit in his mouth (well, this is attributed to most of the dudes in the Old Testament as well, so it’s not much of a prophecy. they were all meant to be Good Egg’s doing God’s work).
    118. The Messiah would be grouped with criminals (highly tenuous, but I’ll put here)
    121. The Messiah would be resurrected by God.
    125. The Messiah would come to Zion as their Redeemer (did he ?)

    The problem of course with these ones is that the followers of Jesus were mostly Jews, and of course they were knowledgeable about the Old Testament. Look at modern media. If someone spat in Saddam’s eye and then he killed them, and then someone found a 600 year old prophecy, they MIGHT manipulate that information to make it LOOK like it fit the prophecy perfectly. And remember, look at the Old Testament prophecies, they don’t have to fit very perfectly. they are very vague and rough.

    [Vague, meaningless, and could be attributed to almost anyone]:
    1. The Jews would have a hardened heart against the Messiah.
    2. The Messiah would speak in parables.
    7. The Messiah would be a “stumbling stone” for the Jews.
    18. The Messiah would grow up in a poor family.
    34. The Messiah would be the cornerstone.
    39. The forerunner of the Messiah would live in the wilderness.
    40. The forerunner would prepare people for the coming of the Messiah.
    47. The Messiah would not draw attention to himself.
    48. The Messiah would have compassion for the poor and needy.
    49. The Messiah would receive guidance from God.
    46. The Messiah would provide “justice” to the Gentiles.
    54. The Messiah would be from everlasting (utterly meaningless)
    55. The Messiah would be sent from God (self-referential)
    56. The Messiah would come for all people (self-referential)
    57. The Messiah would be called to God’s service from the womb.
    58. The Messiah would be called by his name before he was born.
    59. The Messiah’s words would be as a sharp sword.
    60. The Messiah would be protected by God.
    61. The Messiah would be responsible for the judgement of mankind.
    62. The Messiah would be God’s servant.
    113. The Messiah would be God’s servant (repeat of 62)
    63. The Messiah’s work would glorify God (come on, last 5 very self-referential and meaningless)
    64. The Messiah would be distressed over the Jews unbelief.
    65. The Messiah would be rejected by the Jews (all Messiah’s will be rejected, that’s a given. have you ever met people ? they are sceptical by default are they not ?)
    70. The Messiah would be despised (“despised by some, loved by others” could be said about anyone in the entire history of the world).
    82. The Messiah’s own people would not believe he was the Christ.
    91. The Messiah would be thought to be cursed by God.
    85. The Messiah would be despised (repeat of 70)
    86. The Messiah would be rejected (repeat of 65)
    97. The Messiah would be oppressed and afflicted (how much more repitition is possible !)
    116. Because of his sacrifice, the Messiah would be greatly exalted by God (exalted by God ? he IS God !!! meaningless)
    126. The Messiah would have the Spirit of God upon him.
    127. The Messiah would preach the good news.
    129. The Messiah would proclaim a period of grace.
    123. The Messiah would come to provide salvation.

    [Absolutely Meaingless]:
    5. The Messiah would be Immanuel, “God with us.”
    6. The Messiah would be God.
    27. The Messiah would not judge on the basis of external representations (very vague !!! could be applied to anyone !!!)
    28. The Messiah would judge the poor with righteousness. (well, all Jews not also judge all men with righteousness … so this is meaningless)
    30. The Messiah would come for all people.
    31. The Messiah would have the key of David.
    41. The Messiah would be God (self-referetial and meaningless, on believing Jesus to be the Messiah, any Jew would know that the Messiah was God, hence, they would say Jesus was God. completely self-referential).
    43. The Messiah would be God’s sevant (self-referential, meaningless)
    44. The Messiah would have the Spirit of God upon him.
    45. The Messiah would please God (!!! he’s the Messiah !?!?!? meaningless)
    50. The Messiah would be ministered to by God (every man, woman and dog said they were a prophet of God in those days. meaningless).
    51. The Messiah would be the new covenant (completely self-referential).
    66. The Messiah would be God’s servant (totally self-referential)
    68. The Messiah would be God’s servant (68 repeats 66)

  10. Roy Says:

    by the way, i see the text i wrote was input as smiley’s where i intended none (i put 3 dots followed by a ) so no smiley was intended).
    also, i wanted to say, that some may disagree on minor points on where i categorised each of the 129 (more like 100-110 when repititions are discarded), but in general, i think the between 20 to 35 are “of interest”. the rest are clearly self-referential to the point of being meaningless.

    and things like “he shall make his gave beside thieves, but will be buried in a wealthy tomb when he is dead”. i guess that one is of interest, i think i might have put it under meaningless, that’s pretty the only one i think i’ve misplaced. i hope my comments are not deleted for disagreeing with you Scott. debate is good, and my disagreements are i think quite clear.

    Even with 20-35 prophecies of interest, they are quite weak unfortunately. I don’t refute the age of Isiah’s text, carbon dating of Dead Sea scrolls makes it fairly clear (but, um, of course Young Earth Creationists can’t use that as proof of anything as they say that carbon dating is a lie !!!, so they have to doubt the age of Isiah I guess …).

  11. Scott Thong Says:

    Sorry about the smiley things, Roy. It usually happens when 8 and ) are together, and even I can’t avoid it happening.

    I agree that many of the prophecies are very general, however ther are a few ‘time-sensitive’ prophecies in the other books other than Isaiah which are used to determine the time-span in which the Messiah can appear.

    For example, the ‘seventy sevens’ prophecy in Daniel 9, if counted using the Jewish calendar and the conservative estimate for when the Decree of Cyrus was made, the Anointed One’s coming falls on the exact day that Jesus came into Jerusalem triumphantly, riding on a donkey. (I have the quotation in book form, I’ll get it up some time.)

    Another timed prophecy details the ‘sceptre of the tribe of Judah’, which is explaiend as follows:

    The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be. (Genesis 49:10)

    As Dr. Henry M. Morris’ The Defender’s Bible explains:

    This important prophecy has been strikingly fulfilled. Although Judah was neither Jacob’s firstborn son nor the son who would produce the priestly tribe, he was the son through whom God would fulfill His promises to Israel and to the world. The leadership, according to Jacob, was to go to Judah, but this did not happen for over 600 years. Moses came from Levi, Joshua from Ephraim, Gideon from Manasseh, Samson from Dan, Samuel from Ephraim and Saul from Benjamin. But when David finally became king, Judah held the scepter and did not relinquish it until after Shiloh came. “Shiloh” is a name for the Messiah, probably related to the Hebrew word for “peace” (shalom) and meaning in effect, “the one who brings peace.”

    According to the Jewish historian Josephus, the Sanhedrin of Israel lost the right to truly judge its own people when it lost the right to pass death penalties in 11 A.D. (Josephus, Antiquities, Book 17, Chapter 13). Jesus Christ was certainly born before 11 A.D.

    Basically, it means that the Messiah can come between David’s rule and the loss of the right to pass death sentences because of the Roman occupation.

    Another from that site is on the Jewish Temple being around:

    He will come while the Temple of Jerusalem is standing ( Malachi 3:1; Psalm 118:26; Daniel 9:26; Zechariah 11:13; Haggai 2:7-9). Fulfilled: Matthew 21:12, etc. (Note: The Temple did not exist at certain periods in Jewish history, and it was finally destroyed in 70 A.D.)

    With this narrowed window in which the Messiah can appear, the number of candidates drops precipitously.

    Thanks for not being rude or mocking as most of the commentors who disagree with my views are!

    The link for messiahrevealed.org website sends you to an oriental language that translates to a how to move website. (Historically Corroborated: Jesus Fulfilled 129 Messianic Prophecies Made in Isaiah 335 Years Earlier piece. I had done a similar comparison several years ago to show a scientist the probability and odds of Jesus Being the Messiah. It was good to see this very concise. It states the obvious. I too am a scientist and continually find that the events of the Bible and science do not conflict. I wish some in our scientific community would take the probablility and odds of Jesus being the Messiah as they take in belief of scientific principles some which still need to be proved. Yet base their whole existence on less actual data.

    Hi Scott,

    Don’t need to post this – just wanted to send an encouraging word. You’ve made an excellent presentation and I think your reply to Roy was a great example of how answers should be given – with facts and respect. I appreciate your work!

    Great post, well researched and very insightful. Thank you for your work. I also agree with you, ‘that (post) is just a mere snippet of the overwhelmingly abundant evidence for the Bible and the Messiahship of Jesus.’ The more I learn and study – I also (like Karen) find that the events of the Bible and science do not conflict, but support each other.

  16. JGW Says:

    Roy, what about the huge long lists of ancestors going back to at least abraham then? It would be easy to find David and read the list to find Yeshua (Hebrew name of Jesus).

  17. JGW Says:

    (add on)

    Jews of the time had lists of names to prove desendantship from a ancestor for various puposes, for example, like land inheritance (land returned to original owners family’s ever 50 years under law.) These were stored in the temple until its destruction in AD 70, so your techniqly right when you say its unverifiable NOW, but when the apostles were around it would just mean a trip to Jerusalem.

  18. JGW Says:

    (add on)

    Dealing with as I read,
    All desendantship ones were provable for definate at the time.

    Messiah is a jewish concept and the messiah does not have to be the son of god to meet the Jewish criteria, hence why Jesus said that the jews would receive a false messiah (The antichrist or son of perdition).

    Will get back to you, as i have to go.

  19. Ron Says:

    If Jesus was born of a virgin, what matters his paternal lineage on which the Matthew and Luke accounts differ? The seed of David would not be in his DNA, making the point irrelevant.

  20. Scott Thong Says:

    If Jesus was born of a virgin, what matters his paternal lineage on which the Matthew and Luke accounts differ? The seed of David would not be in his DNA, making the point irrelevant. – Ron

    I recall an explanation that Jesus’ paternal lineage was important from a legal standpoint, while His mother’s lineage contributed the familial aspect (Jews follow the mother’s line).

  21. Ron Says:

    I’m familiar with the argument that the author was trying to establish a matriarchal lineage, but an examination of the Greek text (assuming it’s accurate) shows no indication that that was ever the author’s intent. Nor do the proponents of such an argument provide a satisfactory explanation of why the author would want to do so since it runs counter to a longstanding tradition of listing only the patriarchal lineage.

  22. Scott Thong Says:

    How’s about ‘Joseph, the husband of Mary’ instead of saying outright ‘the father of Jesus’?

  23. Ron Says:

    Yes, after taking great pains to come up with three perfect sets of 14 generations (by deliberately skipping a couple), the author(s) of Matthew suddenly realize “crap, Jesus can’t have an earthly father — that’ll contradict the whole being born of a virgin part.” So a long series of “father of” ends with “husband of” in hopes the reader won’t notice the semantic shift.

    Interestingly enough, I’ve also read arguments from scholars who claim that Matthew was the really the one listing matriarchal lineage, while Luke was correctly listing the patriarchal lineage.

  24. Zack T Says:

    God has wonderfully set the stage for Christ’s coming into the world through the virgin birth… It’s not a matter of “crap, Jesus can’t have an earthly father — that’ll contradict the whole being born of a virgin part.”

    Genealogy of Christ in Matthew and Luke – www bcbsr.com/survey/sgosp1.html

    Blood-wise, Christ is of Jewish descend by the mom… You are not considered a Jew unless you are born of a Jewish woman…

    Legally, Christ is the royal heir to David’s throne.. don’t forget, both Joseph and Mary are descendants of King David… so either way, Jesus IS Son of David.

    Ref: www enduringword.com/commentaries/0436.htm
    And in Numbers 36, there was a ‘clause’ in the Jewish laws that allows women to be heirs to their father’s inheritance if he had no sons…
    Mary had no brothers, thus she was legally heir to her father’s inheritance… and marrying Joseph, makes him, so to speak, legal son of her father and co-heir of her father’s inheritance.

    So, God had long long made preparation for Christ’s virgin birth. ^_^

    Old Testament Messianic Prophecies
    Fulfilled in Jesus Christ

    ALL of these prophesies were given hundreds and some thousands of years before Jesus Christ was born. Looking in the face of how He literally fulfilled them all (plus hundreds more), it is an impossibility that He is not Messiah – the Saviour of the world. The ONLY person… past, present or future… who could fulfill all these prophecies is Jesus Christ. See His genealogy starting from faithful Abraham.
