Messiah According to Christians (Old-testament scripture references only)


Christians, Muslims, Jews all share the Messiah idea, however, understanding about it varies. Those beliefs are founded on the prophecies of the old testament. The question we should challenge is, which version of the Messiah is the True One? I examined almost all verses that are said to be a prophecy of the coming Messiah. In this article, you will get a better picture of the prophesies and I will leave the conclusion up to you.

Real deal

The seed of the woman crushes the head of the serpent (Genesis 3:15), the seed comes from the line of Abraham (Genesis 12:3, 22:18), and is promised to be an everlasting covenant for the descendants of Isaac (Genesis 17:19, 21:12) and the seed goes out of Jacob and a scepter rises out of Isreal (Numbers 24:17), the scepter will not depart from Judah and the obedience of all people will be its owner (Genesis 49:10), he will become the eternal heir of the throne of King David and called the ‘The Lord Our Righteous Savior’ (2 Sa 7:12–16; Ps 89:1–4, 132:11,17; Isa 9:7, 11:1; Jer 23:5–6, 33:15–16; Eze 34:23–24, 37:24–25, 3:8, 6:12).


  • After half a year I see some clear interpretation errors in this article, I keep this article because almost all cited verses are used throughout Christianity to prove Jesus his messiahship. See this article for many of those objections:
  • I don't want to quote false texts or interpretations. If you notice one, research it because the truth is sometimes hidden, if you don't see it fit, leave it and go on with the rest. One wrongly quoted verse doesn't disprove the whole article. Take each reference on its own, and try to learn. Feel free to comment on the once you don't see fit. As for now, I would say Psalm 27 and 35 are my picks for debatable texts.
  • Please don't start religious wars, since this article doesn't try to prove Jesus it is just rendering the proof texts that are being used in a nice format.
