Is Jesus really the Messiah? Hidden Headlines looks at the ancient Jewish Prophecies

On the December 20, 2018 edition of Hidden Headlines, (click here for a direct link) I interview Rabbi Charlie Cohen, the Congregation Leader of Congregation Tsemach Adonai, a fellowship of Jewish people who follow Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ).

In this engaging exchange, Rabbi Cohen presents us with several of the key Messianic prophecies found in the Jewish Tenakh (Old Testament) and how they were literally fulfilled in the life of Yeshua.

Messianic prophecies discussed include:

Messiah must be a descendant of King David – 2 Samuel 7:12-13, Isaiah 9:6, 11:1-5, Jeremiah 23:5
Fulfilled – Matthew 1:1-6, Acts 13:22-23, Romans 1:3

Will be born of a virgin – Isaiah 7:14
Fulfilled – Matthew 1:18-2:1, Luke 1:26-35

Will be born in Bethlehem: Micah 5:1-2
Fulfilled – Matthew 2:1, Luke 2:4-7

Will be adored by great persons – Psalm 72:10-11

Will have a ministry of binding up the broken hearted, proclaiming liberty to the captives, and announcing the acceptable year of the Lord – Isaiah 61:1-2

Will be rejected by his own people – Isaiah 53:2-3, 63:3-5, Psalm 69:9
Fulfilled – John 1;11, 7:3-5

Will be raised from the dead: Isaiah 53:9-10, Psalm 2:7-8, 16:10
Fulfilled – Matthew 28:1=20, Actis 2:23-36, 13:33-37, I Corinthians 15:4-6

Will be accepted by the Gentiles – Isaiah 11:10, 42:1-4, 49:1-6
Fulfilled – Matthew 12:18-21, Romans 9:30, 10:20, 11:11, 15:10
