God’s Promises Are True

Jesus’ Fulfillment of Old Testament Prophecy

Matthew 1:22-23

All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet:
“Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son,
     and they shall call his name Immanuel”

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.

Matthew 2:5-6

They told him, “In Bethlehem of Judea, for so it is written by the prophet:
“‘And you, O Bethlehem, in the land of Judah,
are by no means least among the rulers of Judah;
for from you shall come a ruler
    who will shepherd my people Israel.’”

Micah 5:2

But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah, who are too little to be among the clans of Judah, from you shall come forth for me one who is to be ruler in Israel, whose coming forth is from of old, from ancient days.

Matthew 2:14-15

And he rose and took the child and his mother by night and departed to Egypt and remained there until the death of Herod. This was to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet, “Out of Egypt I called my son.”

Hosea 11:1

“When Israel was a child, I loved him,
And out of Egypt I called My son.”

Matthew 3:3

For this is he who was spoken of by the prophet Isaiah when he said,

“The voice of one crying in the wilderness:
‘Prepare the way of the Lord;
    make his paths straight.’”

Isaiah 40:3

A voice cries:
“In the wilderness prepare the way of the Lord;
    make straight in the desert a highway for our God.”

“God will accomplish His purposes.”
