VI. Prophetic Confirmation.

A.      The Jewish Authorities, and the people, anticipated the Messiah from prophecies in the Hebrew Scriptures.

Responding to the prophecy given in Micah 5:2, Wise Men from the East came to Jerusalem to worship the promised Messiah.

Matthew 2:1-2

1 Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, 2saying, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him.”

 

Matthew 2:3-6
3When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. 4And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he inquired of them where the Christ was to be born.
5So they said to him, “In Bethlehem of Judea, for thus it is written by the prophet:
        6”But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah,
        Are not the least among the rulers of Judah;
        For out of you shall come a Ruler
        Who will shepherd My people Israel.”

Micah 5:2
But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, Though you are little among the thousands of Judah, Yet out of you shall come forth to Me The One to be Ruler in Israel, Whose goings forth are from of old, From everlasting.”

Luke 2:25-26

25 And behold, there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon, and this man was just and devout, waiting for the Consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him. 26And it had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord’s Christ.

Luke 2:36-38

36 Now there was one, Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher. She was of a great age, and had lived with a husband seven years from her virginity; 37and this woman was a widow of about eighty-four years, [NU-Text reads a widow until she was eighty-four] who did not depart from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day. 38And coming in that instant she gave thanks to the Lord, [NU-Text reads to God] and spoke of Him to all those who looked for redemption in Jerusalem.

Luke 3:15
Now as the people were in expectation, and all reasoned in their hearts about John, whether he was the Christ or not,

John 1:19-21

19 Now this is the testimony of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, “Who are you?”
20He confessed, and did not deny, but confessed, “I am not the Christ.”
21And they asked him, “What then? Are you Elijah?”
He said, “I am not.”
“Are you the Prophet?”
And he answered, “No.”

John 3:28
You yourselves bear me witness, that I said, “I am not the Christ,’ but, “I have been sent before Him.’

 

Isaiah 40:3
The voice of one crying in the wilderness: “Prepare the way of the LORD; Make straight in the desert [Following Masoretic Text, Targum, and Vulgate; Septuagint omits in the desert ] A highway for our God.

 

Matthew 3:1-12

1 In those days John the Baptist came preaching in the wilderness of Judea, 2and saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!” 3For this is he who was spoken of by the prophet Isaiah, saying:
        “The voice of one crying in the wilderness:
        “Prepare the way of the LORD;
        Make His paths straight.”‘ [Isaiah 40:3]

4Now John himself was clothed in camel’s hair, with a leather belt around his waist; and his food was locusts and wild honey. 5Then Jerusalem, all Judea, and all the region around the Jordan went out to him 6and were baptized by him in the Jordan, confessing their sins.
7But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to his baptism, he said to them, “Brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? 8Therefore bear fruits worthy of repentance, 9and do not think to say to yourselves, “We have Abraham as our father.’ For I say to you that God is able to raise up children to Abraham from these stones. 10And even now the ax is laid to the root of the trees. Therefore every tree which does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 11I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. [M-Text omits and fire] 12His winnowing fan is in His hand, and He will thoroughly clean out His threshing floor, and gather His wheat into the barn; but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.”

 

See also Mark 1:1-8; Luke 3:1-20.

John 7:40-43
40 Therefore many [NU-Text reads some] from the crowd, when they heard this saying, said, “Truly this is the Prophet.” 41Others said, “This is the Christ.”
But some said, “Will the Christ come out of Galilee? 42Has not the Scripture said that the Christ comes from the seed of David and from the town of Bethlehem, where David was?” 43So there was a division among the people because of Him.


John 10:24
Then the Jews surrounded Him and said to Him, “How long do You keep us in doubt? If You are the Christ, tell us plainly.”

 

B. Jesus confirmed prophecies concerning Himself.


Matthew 11:3-5

3and said to Him, “Are You the Coming One, or do we look for another?”
4Jesus answered and said to them, “Go and tell John the things which you hear and see: 5The blind see and the lame walk; the lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear; the dead are raised up and the poor have the gospel preached to them.

 

Isaiah 35:4-6
4Say to those who are fearful-hearted,
        “Be strong, do not fear!
        Behold, your God will come with vengeance,
        With the recompense of God;
        He will come and save you.”
        5Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened,
        And the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
        6Then the lame shall leap like a deer,
        And the tongue of the dumb sing.
        For waters shall burst forth in the wilderness,
        And streams in the desert.

Isaiah 29:17-19

17 Is it not yet a very little while
        Till Lebanon shall be turned into a fruitful field,
        And the fruitful field be esteemed as a forest?
        18In that day the deaf shall hear the words of the book,         And the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity and out of darkness.
        19The humble also shall increase their joy in the LORD,
        And the poor among men shall rejoice
        In the Holy One of Israel.

 

Matthew 11:10
For this is he of whom it is written: “Behold, I send My messenger before Your face, Who will prepare Your way before You.’[Malachi 3:1]
 

Mark 1:2
As it is written in the Prophets: “Behold, I send My messenger before Your face, Who will prepare Your way before You.”


Luke 7:27
This is he of whom it is written: “Behold, I send My messenger before Your face, Who will prepare Your way before You.’ [Malachi 3:1]

 

Malachi 3:1

Matthew 22:42-45
42saying, “What do you think about the Christ? Whose Son is He?”
They said to Him, “The Son of David.”
43He said to them, “How then does David in the Spirit call Him “Lord,’ saying:
        44”The LORD said to my Lord,
        “Sit at My right hand,
        Till I make Your enemies Your footstool”‘?
45If David then calls Him “Lord,’ how is He his Son?”

Acts 2:33-35
33Therefore being exalted to the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, He poured out this which you now see and hear.
34”For David did not ascend into the heavens, but he says himself:
        “The LORD said to my Lord,
        “Sit at My right hand,
        35Till I make Your enemies Your footstool.”

Hebrews 1:13
But to which of the angels has He ever said: “Sit at My right hand, Till I make Your enemies Your footstool”?

Psalm 110:1
The LORD said to my Lord, “Sit at My right hand, Till I make Your enemies Your footstool.”

He shall build a house for My name, and he shall be My son, and I will be his Father; and I will establish the throne of his kingdom over
Israel forever.’

4He who sits in the heavens shall laugh;
        The LORD shall hold them in derision.
        5Then He shall speak to them in His wrath,
        And distress them in His deep displeasure:
        6”Yet I have set My King
        On My holy hill of Zion.”

Psalm 68:6
God sets the solitary in families; He brings out those who are bound into prosperity; But the rebellious dwell in a dry land.

Then Jesus said to them, “All of you will be made to stumble because of Me this night, [NU-Text omits [because of Me this night] for it is written: “I will strike the Shepherd, And the sheep will be scattered.’ [NU-Text omits because of Me this night]

Zechariah 13:7
“Awake, O sword, against My Shepherd, Against the Man who is My Companion,” Says the LORD of hosts. “Strike the Shepherd, And the sheep will be scattered; Then I will turn My hand against the little ones.

 

 

Matthew 15:8
“These people draw near to Me with their mouth, And [NU-Text omits draw near to Me with their mouth, And] honor Me with their lips, But their heart is far from Me.


Mark 7:5-7

5Then the Pharisees and scribes asked Him, “Why do Your disciples not walk according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashed hands?”
6He answered and said to them, “Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written:
        “This people honors Me with their lips,
        But their heart is far from Me.
        7And in vain they worship Me,
        Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.

Isaiah 29:13
Therefore the Lord said: “Inasmuch as these people draw near with their mouths And honor Me with their lips, But have removed their hearts far from Me, And their fear toward Me is taught by the commandment of men,

        6And he will turn
        The hearts of the fathers to the children,
        And the hearts of the children to their fathers,
        Lest I come and strike the earth with a curse.”

 

Matthew 21:42
Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the Scriptures: “The stone which the builders rejected Has become the chief cornerstone. This was the LORD’s doing, And it is marvelous in our eyes’?

Mark 12:10
Have you not even read this Scripture: “The stone which the builders rejected Has become the chief cornerstone.

Luke 20:17
Then He looked at them and said, “What then is this that is written: “The stone which the builders rejected Has become the chief cornerstone’? [Psalm 118:22]

Psalm 118:21-23

21I will praise You,
        For You have answered me,
        And have become my salvation.
        22The stone which the builders rejected
        Has become the chief cornerstone.
        23This was the LORD’s doing;
        It is marvelous in our eyes.

 

 

Mark 14:43-49

43 And immediately, while He was still speaking, Judas, one of the twelve, with a great multitude with swords and clubs, came from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders. 44Now His betrayer had given them a signal, saying, “Whomever I kiss, He is the One; seize Him and lead Him away safely.”
45As soon as he had come, immediately he went up to Him and said to Him, “Rabbi, Rabbi!” and kissed Him.
46Then they laid their hands on Him and took Him. 47And one of those who stood by drew his sword and struck the servant of the high priest, and cut off his ear.
48Then Jesus answered and said to them, “Have you come out, as against a robber, with swords and clubs to take Me? 49I was daily with you in the temple teaching, and you did not seize Me.  But the Scriptures must be fulfilled.”

 

 

Luke 1:16-18

16And he will turn many of the children of Israel to the Lord their God. 17He will also go before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, “to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children,’ and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.”
18And Zacharias said to the angel, “How shall I know this? For I am an old man, and my wife is well advanced in years.”

Malachi 4:4-6

4”Remember the Law of Moses, My servant,
        Which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel,
        With the statutes and judgments.
        5Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet
        Before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD.
        6And he will turn
        The hearts of the fathers to the children,
        And the hearts of the children to their fathers,
        Lest I come and strike the earth with a curse.”

 

Luke 4:16-21

16 So He came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up. And as His custom was, He went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up to read. 17And He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written:
        18”The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me,
        Because He has anointed Me
        To preach the gospel to the poor;
        He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, [NU-Text omits to heal the brokenhearted]
        To proclaim liberty to the captives
        And recovery of sight to the blind,
        To set at liberty those who are oppressed;
        19To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD.” [Isaiah 61:1, 2]

20Then He closed the book, and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all who were in the synagogue were fixed on Him. 21And He began to say to them, “Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.”

Isaiah 61:1,2

1 “The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me,
        Because the LORD has anointed Me
        To preach good tidings to the poor;
        He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
        To proclaim liberty to the captives,
        And the opening of the prison to those who are bound;
        2To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD,
        And the day of vengeance of our God;
        To comfort all who mourn,

John 2:20-22

20Then the Jews said, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and will You raise it up in three days?”
21But He was speaking of the temple of His body. 22Therefore, when He had risen from the dead, His disciples remembered that He had said this to them; [NU-Text and M-Text omit to them] and they believed the Scripture and the word which Jesus had said.

 

John 5:45-47

45Do not think that I shall accuse you to the Father; there is one who accuses you--Moses, in whom you trust. 46For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me; for he wrote about Me. 47But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?”

 

John 6:31
Our fathers ate the manna in the desert; as it is written, “He gave them bread from heaven to eat.” [Exodus 16:4; Nehemiah 9:15; Psalm 78:24]

Exodus 16:4
Then the LORD said to Moses, “Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you. And the people shall go out and gather a certain quota every day, that I may test them, whether they will walk in My law or not.

Had rained down manna on them to eat, And given them of the bread of heaven.

 

 

John 13:18
“I do not speak concerning all of you. I know whom I have chosen; but that the Scripture may be fulfilled, “He who eats bread with Me [NU-Text reads My bread]has lifted up his heel against Me.’ [Psalm 41:9]

John 17:12
While I was with them in the world, [NU-Text omits in the world] I kept them in Your name. Those whom You gave Me I have kept; [ NU-Text reads in Your name which You gave Me. And I guarded them; ] (or [it;] )] and none of them is lost except the son of perdition, that the Scripture might be fulfilled.

 

Psalm 41:9
Even my own familiar friend in whom I trusted, Who ate my bread, Has lifted up his heel against me.

Then they crucified Him, and divided His garments, casting lots, [NU-Text and M-Text omit the rest of this verse] that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet: “They divided My garments among them, And for My clothing they cast lots.” [NU-Text and M-Text omit the rest of this verse]

 

John 19:24
They said therefore among themselves, “Let us not tear it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be,” that the Scripture might be fulfilled which says: “They divided My garments among them, And for My clothing they cast lots.” [Psalm
22:18] Therefore the soldiers did these things.

Hebrews 10:5-8

5 Therefore, when He came into the world, He said:
        “Sacrifice and offering You did not desire,
        But a body You have prepared for Me.
        6In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin
        You had no pleasure.
        7Then I said, “Behold, I have come--
        In the volume of the book it is written of Me--
        To do Your will, O God.”‘
8Previously saying, “Sacrifice and offering, burnt offerings, and offerings for sin You did not desire, nor had pleasure in them” (which are offered according to the law),

Romans 10:16
But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah says, "LORD, who has believed our report?"

 

Jesus Christ fulfilled Isaiah 53 in that He

Was despised and rejected (v. 3, also Psalm 118:22)

Was a man of sorrows (v. 3)



Carried our sorrows (v. 4)


Was smitten and afflicted (v. 4)


Was pierced for our transgressions (v. 5)

Was bruised (v.5)







Suffered as a lamb (v. 7)

 

 

 

 





Died with the wicked (v. 9)




Was sinless (v. 9)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Prayed for his transgressors (v. 12)

Psalm 40:6-8
6Sacrifice and offering You did not desire;
        My ears You have opened.
        Burnt offering and sin offering You did not require.
        7Then I said, “Behold, I come;
        In the scroll of the book it is written of me.
        8I delight to do Your will, O my God,
        And Your law is within my heart.”

1 Who has believed our report?
        And to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?
        2For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant,
        And as a root out of dry ground.
        He has no form or comeliness;
        And when we see Him,
        There is no beauty that we should desire Him.
        3He is despised and rejected by men,
        A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.
        And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him;
        He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.

        4Surely He has borne our griefs
        And carried our sorrows;
        Yet we esteemed Him stricken,
        Smitten by God, and afflicted.
        5But He was wounded for our transgressions,
        He was bruised for our iniquities;
        The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
        And by His stripes we are healed.
        6All we like sheep have gone astray;
        We have turned, every one, to his own way;
        And the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.

        7He was oppressed and He was afflicted,
        Yet He opened not His mouth;
        He was led as a lamb to the slaughter,
        And as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
        So He opened not His mouth.
        8He was taken from prison and from judgment,
        And who will declare His generation?
        For He was cut off from the land of the living;
        For the transgressions of My people He was stricken.
        9And they [Literally he or He] made His grave with the wicked--
        But with the rich at His death,
        Because He had done no violence,
        Nor was any deceit in His mouth.

        10Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise Him;
        He has put Him to grief.
        When You make His soul an offering for sin,
        He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days,
        And the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in His hand.
        11He shall see the labor of His soul, [Following Masoretic Text, Targum, and Vulgate; Dead Sea Scrolls and Septuagint read From the labor of His soul He shall see light] and be satisfied.
        By His knowledge My righteous Servant shall justify many,
        For He shall bear their iniquities.
        12Therefore I will divide Him a portion with the great,
        And He shall divide the spoil with the strong,
        Because He poured out His soul unto death,
        And He was numbered with the transgressors,
        And He bore the sin of many,
        And made intercession for the transgressors.

C. Matthew confirmed prophecies concerning Jesus.


Matthew 1:1-17

1 The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the Son of David, the Son of Abraham:
2Abraham begot Isaac, Isaac begot Jacob, and Jacob begot Judah and his brothers. 3Judah begot Perez and Zerah by Tamar, Perez begot Hezron, and Hezron begot Ram. 4Ram begot Amminadab, Amminadab begot Nahshon, and Nahshon begot Salmon. 5Salmon begot Boaz by Rahab, Boaz begot Obed by Ruth, Obed begot Jesse, 6and Jesse begot David the king.
David the king begot Solomon by her who had been the wife of Uriah. 7Solomon begot Rehoboam, Rehoboam begot Abijah, and Abijah begot Asa. [NU-Text reads Asaph]  8Asa begot Jehoshaphat, Jehoshaphat begot Joram, and Joram begot Uzziah. 9Uzziah begot Jotham, Jotham begot Ahaz, and Ahaz begot Hezekiah. 10Hezekiah begot Manasseh, Manasseh begot Amon, [NU-Text reads Amos].

and Amon begot Josiah. 11Josiah begot Jeconiah and his brothers about the time they were carried away to Babylon.
12And after they were brought to Babylon, Jeconiah begot Shealtiel, and Shealtiel begot Zerubbabel. 13Zerubbabel begot Abiud, Abiud begot Eliakim, and Eliakim begot Azor. 14Azor begot Zadok, Zadok begot Achim, and Achim begot Eliud. 15Eliud begot Eleazar, Eleazar begot Matthan, and Matthan begot Jacob. 16And Jacob begot Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus who is called Christ.
17So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations, from David until the captivity in Babylon are fourteen generations, and from the captivity in Babylon until the Christ are fourteen generations.

 

Acts 7:2-5
2And he said, “Brethren and fathers, listen: The God of glory appeared to our father Abraham when he was in Mesopotamia, before he dwelt in Haran, 3and said to him, “Get out of your country and from your relatives, and come to a land that I will show you.’  4Then he came out of the land of the Chaldeans and dwelt in Haran. And from there, when his father was dead, He moved him to this land in which you now dwell. 5And God gave him no inheritance in it, not even enough to set his foot on. But even when Abraham had no child, He promised to give it to him for a possession, and to his descendants after him.

Genesis 3:15
And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, And you shall bruise His heel.”

Genesis 12:1-3

1 Now the LORD had said to Abram:
        “Get out of your country,
        From your family
        And from your father’s house,
        To a land that I will show you.
        2I will make you a great nation;
        I will bless you
        And make your name great;
        And you shall be a blessing.
        3I will bless those who bless you,
        And I will curse him who curses you;
        And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

 

Genesis 22:18
In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.”

23 Now Jesus Himself began His ministry at about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph, the son of Heli, 24the son of Matthat, This and several other names in the genealogy are spelled somewhat differently in the NU-Text. Since the New King James Version uses the Old Testament spelling for persons mentioned in the New Testament, these variations, which come from the Greek, have not been footnoted.

Cf. Luke 2:1-7

1 And it came to pass in those days that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. 2This census first took place while Quirinius was governing Syria. 3So all went to be registered, everyone to his own city.
4Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, 5to be registered with Mary, his betrothed wife, [NU-Text omits wife] who was with child. 6So it was, that while they were there, the days were completed for her to be delivered. 7And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.


Genealogy of Christ through Joseph.

 Matthew 1:1-17

1 The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the Son of David, the Son of Abraham:
2Abraham begot Isaac, Isaac begot Jacob, and Jacob begot Judah and his brothers. 3Judah begot Perez and Zerah by Tamar, Perez begot Hezron, and Hezron begot Ram. 4Ram begot Amminadab, Amminadab begot Nahshon, and Nahshon begot Salmon. 5Salmon begot Boaz by Rahab, Boaz begot Obed by Ruth, Obed begot Jesse, 6and Jesse begot David the king.
David the king begot Solomon by her who had been the wife of Uriah. 7Solomon begot Rehoboam, Rehoboam begot Abijah, and Abijah begot Asa. [NU-Text reads Asaph]. 8Asa begot Jehoshaphat, Jehoshaphat begot Joram, and Joram begot Uzziah. 9Uzziah begot Jotham, Jotham begot Ahaz, and Ahaz begot Hezekiah. 10Hezekiah begot Manasseh, Manasseh begot Amon, [NU-Text reads Amos] and Amon begot Josiah. 11Josiah begot Jeconiah and his brothers about the time they were carried away to Babylon.
12And after they were brought to Babylon, Jeconiah begot Shealtiel, and Shealtiel begot Zerubbabel. 13Zerubbabel begot Abiud, Abiud begot Eliakim, and Eliakim begot Azor. 14Azor begot Zadok, Zadok begot Achim, and Achim begot Eliud. 15Eliud begot Eleazar, Eleazar begot Matthan, and Matthan begot Jacob. 16And Jacob begot Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus who is called Christ.
17So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations, from David until the captivity in Babylon are fourteen generations, and from the captivity in Babylon until the Christ are fourteen generations.

 

Cf. Matthew 1:18-23

18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit. 19Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not wanting to make her a public example, was minded to put her away secretly. 20But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. 21And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name JESUS, for He will save His people from their sins.”
22So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying: 23”Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” [Literally God-With-Us] which is translated, “God with us.”


Isaiah 7:14
Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel. [Literally God-With-Us]


2 Samuel 7:14
I will be his Father, and he shall be My son. If he commits iniquity, I will chasten him with the rod of men and with the blows of the sons of men.

 

Matthew 2:1-6

1 Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, 2saying, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him.”
3When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. 4And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he inquired of them where the Christ was to be born.
5So they said to him, “In Bethlehem of Judea, for thus it is written by the prophet:
        6”But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah,
        Are not the least among the rulers of Judah;
        For out of you shall come a Ruler
        Who will shepherd My people Israel.”‘ [Micah 5:2]

Micah 5:2
“But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, Though you are little among the thousands of Judah, Yet out of you shall come forth to Me The One to be Ruler in Israel, Whose goings forth are from of old, From everlasting.”

        18”The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me,
        Because He has anointed Me
        To preach the gospel to the poor;
        He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, [NU-Text omits to heal the brokenhearted]
        To proclaim liberty to the captives
        And recovery of sight to the blind,
        To set at liberty those who are oppressed;
        19To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD.” [Isaiah 61:1, 2]
20Then He closed the book, and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all who were in the synagogue were fixed on Him.

 

Isaiah 61:1-2

1 “The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me,
        Because the LORD has anointed Me
        To preach good tidings to the poor;
        He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
        To proclaim liberty to the captives,
        And the opening of the prison to those who are bound;
        2To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD,
        And the day of vengeance of our God;
        To comfort all who mourn,

 

Luke 20:17
Then He looked at them and said, “What then is this that is written: “The stone which the builders rejected Has become the chief cornerstone’? [Psalm 118:22]

Isaiah 28:16
Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: “Behold, I lay in Zion a stone for a foundation, A tried stone, a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation; Whoever believes will not act hastily.

Psalm 118:21-23

21I will praise You,
        For You have answered me,
        And have become my salvation.
        22The stone which the builders rejected
        Has become the chief cornerstone.
        23This was the LORD’s doing;
        It is marvelous in our eyes.

 

Luke 22-23

The Lord’s Supper

Arrest of Jesus

Trial of Jesus

Crucifixion of Jesus

Isaiah 53
2For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant,
        And as a root out of dry ground.
        He has no form or comeliness;
        And when we see Him,
        There is no beauty that we should desire Him.
        3He is despised and rejected by men,
        A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.
        And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him;
        He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.

        4Surely He has borne our griefs
        And carried our sorrows;
        Yet we esteemed Him stricken,
        Smitten by God, and afflicted.
        5But He was wounded for our transgressions,
        He was bruised for our iniquities;
        The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
        And by His stripes we are healed.
        6All we like sheep have gone astray;
        We have turned, every one, to his own way;
        And the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.

        7He was oppressed and He was afflicted,
        Yet He opened not His mouth;
        He was led as a lamb to the slaughter,
        And as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
        So He opened not His mouth.
        8He was taken from prison and from judgment,
        And who will declare His generation?
        For He was cut off from the land of the living;
        For the transgressions of My people He was stricken.
        9And they [Literally he or He] made His grave with the wicked--
        But with the rich at His death,
        Because He had done no violence,
        Nor was any deceit in His mouth.

        10Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise Him;
        He has put Him to grief.
        When You make His soul an offering for sin,
        He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days,
        And the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in His hand.
        11He shall see the labor of His soul, [Following Masoretic Text, Targum, and Vulgate; Dead Sea Scrolls and Septuagint read From the labor of His soul He shall see light]. and be satisfied.
        By His knowledge My righteous Servant shall justify many,
        For He shall bear their iniquities.
        12Therefore I will divide Him a portion with the great,
        And He shall divide the spoil with the strong,
        Because He poured out His soul unto death,
        And He was numbered with the transgressors,
        And He bore the sin of many,
        And made intercession for the transgressors.

 

Luke 23:33
And when they had come to the place called Calvary, there they crucified Him, and the criminals, one on the right hand and the other on the left.

Psalm 22:16
For dogs have surrounded Me; The congregation of the wicked has enclosed Me. They pierced [Following some Hebrew manuscripts, Septuagint, Syriac, Vulgate; Masoretic Text reads Like a lion] My hands and My feet;

 

 

Acts 4:11
This is the “stone which was rejected by you builders, which has become the chief cornerstone.’ [Psalm 118:22]

 

Psalm 118:21-23

21I will praise You,
        For You have answered me,
        And have become my salvation.
        22The stone which the builders rejected
        Has become the chief cornerstone.
        23This was the LORD’s doing;
        It is marvelous in our eyes.

 

F. John confirmed prophecies concerning Jesus.

John 1:6-8

6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7This man came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all through him might believe. 8He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.

John 2:17
Then His disciples remembered that it was written, “Zeal for Your house has eaten [NU-Text and M-Text read will eat] Me up.” [Psalm 69:9]

John 2:22
Therefore, when He had risen from the dead, His disciples remembered that He had said this to them; [NU-Text and M-Text omit to them] and they believed the Scripture and the word which Jesus had said.

 

John 12:12-15

12 The next day a great multitude that had come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, 13took branches of palm trees and went out to meet Him, and cried out:
        “Hosanna!
        “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD!’ [Psalm 118:26]
        The King of Israel!”
14Then Jesus, when He had found a young donkey, sat on it; as it is written:
        15”Fear not, daughter of Zion;
        Behold, your King is coming,
        Sitting on a donkey’s colt.” [Zechariah 9:9]

Psalm 118:26
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD! We have blessed you from the house of the LORD.

Zechariah 9:9
“Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your King is coming to you; He is just and having salvation, Lowly and riding on a donkey, A colt, the foal of a donkey.

 

John 12:36-38

36While you have the light, believe in the light, that you may become sons of light.” These things Jesus spoke, and departed, and was hidden from them.
37 But although He had done so many signs before them, they did not believe in Him, 38that the word of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spoke:
        “Lord, who has believed our report?
        And to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?”

Isaiah 53:1
Who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?

 

The Crucifixion, with details, in fulfillment of prophecy.

John 19:23-24

23Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took His garments and made four parts, to each soldier a part, and also the tunic. Now the tunic was without seam, woven from the top in one piece. 24They said therefore among themselves, “Let us not tear it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be,” that the Scripture might be fulfilled which says:
        “They divided My garments among them,
        And for My clothing they cast lots.”  [Psalm 22:18]
Therefore the soldiers did these things.

Psalm 22:18
They divide My garments among them, And for My clothing they cast lots.

 

 

John 19:34
But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately blood and water came out.

Zechariah 12:10
“And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn.

 

John 19:36
For these things were done that the Scripture should be fulfilled, “Not one of His bones shall be broken.”[Exodus 12:46; Numbers 9:12; Psalm 34:20]

Exodus 12:46
In one house it shall be eaten; you shall not carry any of the flesh outside the house, nor shall you break one of its bones.

Numbers 9:12
They shall leave none of it until morning, nor break one of its bones. According to all the ordinances of the Passover they shall keep it.

Psalm 34:20
He guards all his bones; Not one of them is broken.

 

John 19:37
And again another Scripture says, “They shall look on Him whom they pierced.” [Zechariah 12:10]

 

Zechariah 12:10
“And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn.


John 20:9
For as yet they did not know the Scripture, that He must rise again from the dead.


 

G. Philip confirmed prophecies about Jesus.

John 1:45
Philip found Nathanael and said to him, “We have found Him of whom Moses in the law, and also the prophets, wrote--Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.”

Acts 8:26-35

26 Now an angel of the Lord spoke to Philip, saying, “Arise and go toward the south along the road which goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza.” This is desert. 27So he arose and went. And behold, a man of Ethiopia, a eunuch of great authority under Candace the queen of the Ethiopians, who had charge of all her treasury, and had come to Jerusalem to worship, 28was returning. And sitting in his chariot, he was reading Isaiah the prophet. 29Then the Spirit said to Philip, “Go near and overtake this chariot.”
30So Philip ran to him, and heard him reading the prophet Isaiah, and said, “Do you understand what you are reading?”
31And he said, “How can I, unless someone guides me?” And he asked Philip to come up and sit with him. 32The place in the Scripture which he read was this:
        “He was led as a sheep to the slaughter;
        And as a lamb before its shearer is silent,
        So He opened not His mouth.
        33In His humiliation His justice was taken away,
        And who will declare His generation?
        For His life is taken from the earth.” [Isaiah 53:7, 8]

34So the eunuch answered Philip and said, “I ask you, of whom does the prophet say this, of himself or of some other man?” 35Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning at this Scripture, preached Jesus to him.

Isaiah 53:7-8
7He was oppressed and He was afflicted,
        Yet He opened not His mouth;
        He was led as a lamb to the slaughter,
        And as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
        So He opened not His mouth.
        8He was taken from prison and from judgment,
        And who will declare His generation?
        For He was cut off from the land of the living;
        For the transgressions of My people He was stricken.

 

H. Apollos confirmed prophecies concerning Jesus.

Acts 18:24
Now a certain Jew named Apollos, born at
Alexandria, an eloquent man and mighty in the Scriptures, came to Ephesus.

 

Acts 18:28
for he vigorously refuted the Jews publicly, showing from the Scriptures that Jesus is the Christ.

 

I. Paul confirmed prophecies concerning Jesus.


Acts 13:33
God has fulfilled this for us their children, in that He has raised up Jesus. As it is also written in the second Psalm: “You are My Son, Today I have begotten You.’ [Psalm 2:7]

Acts 2:27
For You will not leave my soul in Hades, Nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption.

Psalm 2:7
“I will declare the decree: The LORD has said to Me, “You are My Son, Today I have begotten You.

Psalm 16:10
For You will not leave my soul in Sheol, Nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption.

 

Acts 13:34-36
34And that He raised Him from the dead, no more to return to corruption, He has spoken thus:
        “I will give you the sure mercies of David.’ [Isaiah 55:3]
35Therefore He also says in another Psalm:
        “You will not allow Your Holy One to see corruption.’ [Psalm 16:10]
36”For David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell asleep, was buried with his fathers, and saw corruption;

Isaiah 55:3
Incline your ear, and come to Me. Hear, and your soul shall live; And I will make an everlasting covenant with you-- The sure mercies of David.

Psalm 16:10
For You will not leave my soul in Sheol, Nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption.

 

Acts 17:2-4

2Then Paul, as his custom was, went in to them, and for three Sabbaths reasoned with them from the Scriptures, 3explaining and demonstrating that the Christ had to suffer and rise again from the dead, and saying, “This Jesus whom I preach to you is the Christ.” 4And some of them were persuaded; and a great multitude of the devout Greeks, and not a few of the leading women, joined Paul and Silas.

 

Romans 1:1-3

1 Paul, a bondservant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated to the gospel of God 2which He promised before through His prophets in the Holy Scriptures, 3concerning His Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who was born of the seed of David according to the flesh,

 

Romans 4:3
For what does the Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.” [Genesis 15:6]

Genesis 15:6
And he believed in the LORD, and He accounted it to him for righteousness.

 

Romans 9:33
As it is written: “Behold, I lay in Zion a stumbling stone and rock of offense, And whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” [Isaiah 8:14; 28:16]

 

Isaiah 8:14
He will be as a sanctuary, But a stone of stumbling and a rock of offense To both the houses of Israel, As a trap and a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem.

Isaiah 28:16
Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: “Behold, I lay in Zion a stone for a foundation, A tried stone, a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation; Whoever believes will not act hastily.

 

 

 

Romans 10:11
For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” [Isaiah 28:16]

 

Isaiah 28:16
Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: “Behold, I lay in Zion a stone for a foundation, A tried stone, a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation; Whoever believes will not act hastily.

 

Romans 11:8
Just as it is written: “God has given them a spirit of stupor, Eyes that they should not see And ears that they should not hear, To this very day.” [Deuteronomy 29:4; Isaiah 29:10]

 

Deuteronomy 29:4
Yet the LORD has not given you a heart to perceive and eyes to see and ears to hear, to this very day.

Isaiah 29:10
For the LORD has poured out on you The spirit of deep sleep, And has closed your eyes, namely, the prophets; And He has covered your heads, namely, the seers.

 

Romans 11:26
And so all Israel will be saved, [Or delivered ] as it is written: “The Deliverer will come out of Zion, And He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob;

 

Isaiah 59:20
“The Redeemer will come to Zion, And to those who turn from transgression in Jacob,” Says the LORD.

 

Romans 14:11
For it is written: “As I live, says the LORD, Every knee shall bow to Me, And every tongue shall confess to God.” [Isaiah 45:23]

Isaiah 45:23
I have sworn by Myself; The word has gone out of My mouth in righteousness, And shall not return, That to Me every knee shall bow, Every tongue shall take an oath.

 

Romans 15:3
For even Christ did not please Himself; but as it is written, “The reproaches of those who reproached You fell on Me.”[Psalm 69:9]

 

Psalm 69:9
Because zeal for Your house has eaten me up, And the reproaches of those who reproach You have fallen on me.

 

Romans 15:8-10

8Now I say that Jesus Christ has become a servant to the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made to the fathers, 9and that the Gentiles might glorify God for His mercy, as it is written:
        “For this reason I will confess to You among the Gentiles,
        And sing to Your name.”
10And again he says:
        “Rejoice, O Gentiles, with His people!”

2 Samuel 22:50
Therefore I will give thanks to You, O LORD, among the Gentiles, And sing praises to Your name.


Psalm 18:49
Therefore I will give thanks to You, O LORD, among the Gentiles, And sing praises to Your name.

 

Deuteronomy 32:43
“Rejoice, O Gentiles, with His people; [A
Dead Sea Scroll fragment adds And let all the gods [(angels) worship Him] (compare Septuagint and Hebrews 1:6)]  For He will avenge the blood of His servants, And render vengeance to His adversaries; He will provide atonement for His land and His people.”

 

 

 

Romans 15:21
but as it is written: “To whom He was not announced, they shall see; And those who have not heard shall understand.”[Isaiah 52:15]

 

Isaiah 52:15
So shall He sprinkle [Or startle] many nations. Kings shall shut their mouths at Him; For what had not been told them they shall see, And what they had not heard they shall consider.

 

1 Corinthians 1:19
For it is written: “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, And bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.” [Isaiah 29:14]

 

Isaiah 29:14
Therefore, behold, I will again do a marvelous work Among this people, A marvelous work and a wonder; For the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, And the understanding of their prudent men shall be hidden.”

 

1 Corinthians 1:30-32
30But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God--and righteousness and sanctification and redemption-- 31that, as it is written, “He who glories, let him glory in the LORD.”

Jeremiah 9:24
But let him who glories glory in this, That he understands and knows Me, That I am the LORD, exercising lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth. For in these I delight,” says the LORD.

 

1 Corinthians 15:3
For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures,

Isaiah 53
5But He was wounded for our transgressions,
        He was bruised for our iniquities;
        The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
        And by His stripes we are healed.
        6All we like sheep have gone astray;
        We have turned, every one, to his own way;
        And the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
        7He was oppressed and He was afflicted,
        Yet He opened not His mouth;
        He was led as a lamb to the slaughter,
        And as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
        So He opened not His mouth.
        8He was taken from prison and from judgment,
        And who will declare His generation?
        For He was cut off from the land of the living;
        For the transgressions of My people He was stricken.
        9And they [Literally he or He] made His grave with the wicked--
        But with the rich at His death,
        Because He had done no violence,
        Nor was any deceit in His mouth.

        10Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise Him;
        He has put Him to grief.
        When You make His soul an offering for sin,
        He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days,
        And the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in His hand.
        11He shall see the labor of His soul, [Following Masoretic Text, Targum, and Vulgate; Dead Sea Scrolls and Septuagint read From the labor of His soul He shall see light] and be satisfied.
        By His knowledge My righteous Servant shall justify many,
        For He shall bear their iniquities.
        12Therefore I will divide Him a portion with the great,
        And He shall divide the spoil with the strong,
        Because He poured out His soul unto death,
        And He was numbered with the transgressors,
        And He bore the sin of many,
        And made intercession for the transgressors.

 

1 Corinthians 15:2-4

2by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you--unless you believed in vain.
3For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures,

 

Psalm 16:8-10
8I have set the LORD always before me;
        Because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved.
        9Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices;
        My flesh also will rest in hope.
        10For You will not leave my soul in Sheol,
        Nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption.

Hosea 6:2
2After two days He will revive us;
        On the third day He will raise us up,
        That we may live in His sight.

 

 

 

Galatians 3:8
And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel to Abraham beforehand, saying, “In you all the nations shall be blessed.” [Genesis 12:3; 18:18; 22:18; 26:4; 28:14]

Genesis 12:3
I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

Genesis 18:18
since Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him?

Genesis 22:18
In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.”

Genesis 26:4
And I will make your descendants multiply as the stars of heaven; I will give to your descendants all these lands; and in your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed;

Genesis 28:14
Also your descendants shall be as the dust of the earth; you shall spread abroad to the west and the east, to the north and the south; and in you and in your seed all the families of the earth shall be blessed.

 

Galatians 3:13
Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree” [Deuteronomy 21:23] ),

Deuteronomy 21:23
his body shall not remain overnight on the tree, but you shall surely bury him that day, so that you do not defile the land which the LORD your God is giving you as an inheritance; for he who is hanged is accursed of God.

 

Galatians 3:16
Now to Abraham and his Seed were the promises made. He does not say, “And to seeds,” as of many, but as of one, “And to your Seed,” [Genesis 12:7;
13:15; 24:7] who is Christ.

 

Acts 7:2-5
2And he said, “Brethren and fathers, listen: The God of glory appeared to our father Abraham when he was in Mesopotamia, before he dwelt in Haran, 3and said to him, “Get out of your country and from your relatives, and come to a land that I will show you.’ [Genesis 12:1]  4Then he came out of the land of the Chaldeans and dwelt in Haran. And from there, when his father was dead, He moved him to this land in which you now dwell. 5And God gave him no inheritance in it, not even enough to set his foot on. But even when Abraham had no child, He promised to give it to him for a possession, and to his descendants after him.

 

Genesis 12:1-3

1 Now the LORD had said to Abram:
        “Get out of your country,
        From your family
        And from your father’s house,
        To a land that I will show you.
        2I will make you a great nation;
        I will bless you
        And make your name great;
        And you shall be a blessing.
        3I will bless those who bless you,
        And I will curse him who curses you;
        And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

 

Genesis 12:7
Then the LORD appeared to Abram and said, “To your descendants I will give this land.” And there he built an altar to the LORD, who had appeared to him.

 

Genesis 13:15
for all the land which you see I give to you and your descendants [Literally seed,] and so throughout the book] forever.

 

Genesis 22:16-18

16and said: “By Myself I have sworn, says the LORD, because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son-- 17blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is on the seashore; and your descendants shall possess the gate of their enemies. 18In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.”

 

Genesis 24:7
The LORD God of heaven, who took me from my father’s house and from the land of my family, and who spoke to me and swore to me, saying, “To your descendants [Literally seed] I give this land,’ He will send His angel before you, and you shall take a wife for my son from there.

 

Genesis 28:4
And give you the blessing of Abraham, To you and your descendants with you, That you may inherit the land In which you are a stranger, Which God gave to Abraham.”


Genesis 28:13
And behold, the LORD stood above it and said: “I am the LORD God of Abraham your father and the God of Isaac; the land on which you lie I will give to you and your descendants.

Genesis 28:14
Also your descendants shall be as the dust of the earth; you shall spread abroad to the west and the east, to the north and the south; and in you and in your seed all the families of the earth shall be blessed.

Genesis 32:12
For You said, “I will surely treat you well, and make your descendants as the sand of the sea, which cannot be numbered for multitude.”‘

Genesis 35:12
The land which I gave Abraham and Isaac I give to you; and to your descendants after you I give this land.”

Genesis 48:4
and said to me, “Behold, I will make you fruitful and multiply you, and I will make of you a multitude of people, and give this land to your descendants after you as an everlasting possession.’

 

 

 

Galatians 3:21-23

21Is the law then against the promises of God? Certainly not! For if there had been a law given which could have given life, truly righteousness would have been by the law. 22But the Scripture has confined all under sin, that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe. 23But before faith came, we were kept under guard by the law, kept for the faith which would afterward be revealed.

 

 

Galatians 4:4-6

4But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born [Or made] of a woman, born under the law, 5to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.
6And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out, “Abba, Father!”

Genesis 3:15
And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, And you shall bruise His heel.”

 

Ephesians 4:8
Therefore He says: “When He ascended on high, He led captivity captive, And gave gifts to men.”[Psalm 68:18]

Matthew 22:44
“The LORD said to my Lord, “Sit at My right hand, Till I make Your enemies Your footstool”‘? [Psalm 110:1]

Mark 12:36
For David himself said by the Holy Spirit: “The LORD said to my Lord, “Sit at My right hand, Till I make Your enemies Your footstool.”‘ [Psalm 110:1]

Luke 20:43

38Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.”
40 And with many other words he testified and exhorted them, saying, “Be saved from this perverse generation.” 41Then those who gladly [NU-Text omits gladly] received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them. 42And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers. 43Then fear came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles. 44Now all who believed were together, and had all things in common, 45and sold their possessions and goods, and divided them among all, as anyone had need.

        I will rebuild its ruins,
        And I will set it up;

        Says the LORD who does all these things.’

        And repair its damages;
        I will raise up its ruins,
        And rebuild it as in the days of old;
        12That they may possess the remnant of Edom, [Septuagint reads mankind]
        And all the Gentiles who are called by My name,”
        Says the LORD who does this thing.
