Jesus In the Psalms

“Then He (Jesus) said to them, ‘These are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms concerning Me’” (Luke 24:44)

Many of the following Psalms predicting the person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, were written some 1000 years prior to His coming in human form:

  • His sonship and birth (Psalms 2:7)
  • His resurrection (Psalms 16:8-10)
  • His rejection (Psalms 22:6,7)
  • His bones would be dislocated (Psalms 22:14)
  • He would be faint and thirsty on the cross (Psalms 22:15)
  • His crucifixion (Psalms 22:15-18)
  • His garments would be parted (Psalms 22:18)
  • Not one of His bones should be broken (Psalms 34:20)
  • His betrayal (Psalms 41:9)
  • His deity and humanity (Psalms 45:6,7)
  • His second coming (Psalms 50:3-6)
  • His ascension (Psalms 68:18)
  • Gall and vinegar should be given Him (Psalms 69:21)
  • His universal rule (Psalms 72:8)
  • His pre-eminence over earthly kings (Psalms 72:11)
  • His human descent (Psalms 89:4,29,36)
  • His creatorship and eternal existence (Psalms 102:25-28)
  • His session at the right hand of God (Psalms 110:1)
  • His eternal priesthood (Psalms 110:4)
  • His triumphal entry (Psalms 118:22-26)

Only a sovereign God can predict His prophecies centuries prior to their literal fulfillment!  By the time the Scriptures were completed, 27% (that’s over 1/4) was predictive (prophetic) in nature! And all of the Bible focuses on God’s uniquely begotten and beloved Son, Jesus Christ. Creation, time and eternity is all about Him and Him alone! To Him alone be all the glory forever!
