He was not the kind of man that most people would consider a powerful leader, or conqueror of nations. He worked with His hands and shaped wood from trees into useful objects for life. He used no force to compel anyone, He spoke humbly, and treated the lost, the broken, and the poor, with great compassion and love.

He did not attend a prominent Rabbinical school to learn the ancient scriptures. He was no author or traveling evangelist. There were no accolades or parades when He came into the world, though He created all that exists by the words of His mouth.

He was rejected, despised, ridiculed, scourged and crucified. While bearing unimaginable suffering Himself, the constant desire of His heart was to bring freedom to His tormentors. To the men who tortured Him: “Father, forgiven them.” To the repentant thief on the cross who had mocked Him moments before: “Today you will be with me in paradise.” To the whole world, a promise: “It is finished.” The work of your redemption is complete, eternal life is yours, heaven is your eternal home.

His heart burst from within as the mounting pressure of bearing the sins of the world pushed his body beyond the stress than any man had ever bore. He commanded His spirit to depart His body. He breathed His last, His blood poured out, His work– finished.

For three days, He lay in the borrowed tomb of a friend, his body experiencing no decay. On the first day of the week, a spectacular event–equalled, only by the first moments of the universe; when light exploded into the darkness of this world and He was alive once more.

When we read the New Testament narrative of Jesus, we are struck by the impossibility of this story. There are many aspects of the accounts that the writers are describing that were not expected by Israel, nor the world. The idea that God would visit the earth in the form of human being. The thought that the natural laws of the universe could be suspended by the voice of a man. How could anyone speak to a raging sea and calm it?The possibility that a person could shout at a tomb and the dead would return to life. It’s a good thing that Jesus said the name of Lazarus when He commanded Him to rise; otherwise the dead from the whole world would have risen.

This is a systematic treatise that intricately details the purpose of Jesus’ presence here on the earth.. See His life, death, and resurrection through the lens of the Hebrew scriptures in one of the most thorough and detailed books available today.

What if you could open your Bible and find the Hebrew prophecies which describe the Messiah, and the stunning fulfillments of these scriptures, all in one place?

After forty-one years of intense study, research, teaching, and writing, this Messianic Prophecy Bible is now available. With more than 4,400 pages, this new Bible provides the reader with a simple and concise ability to understand how Jesus fulfilled every prophecy that was written for the Messiah.

Beginning with the Old Testament scriptures, the reader can simply read through the text and view the relevant Messianic Prophecies that were written to describe the coming Savior of the World. Each prophecy from the Old Testament, which describes a particular aspect of the Messiah, is indicated by a link or multiple links. When you click on one of these links, you are directed to an extensive commentary that fully defines this prophecy and how a specific event of Jesus’ life and ministry, fulfilled the words of the Hebrew prophet. As an added benefit, the commentary that is written for each of these prophecies; has an important and personal application for your own life.

As you read through the New Testament, each relevant verse of scripture that has an Old Testament prediction, is also indicated by a link. When this link is clicked on, you are directed to the Old Testament Bible where this verse is located. As you read through the context of the verses where this prophecy is located, you will be astounded at how God placed a seemingly unrelated verse of scripture that speaks of the Messiah; in the midst of other scriptures that describe several other subjects.

Many of these Old Testament prophecies of the Messiah have earlier fulfillments that took place during the life of the prophet who wrote his prediction. As these earlier fulfillments took place, the people of that day watched the words of the prophet come to pass, giving them confidence that the later fulfillments of this same prophecy would also be fulfilled many years later.

The commentary for each of these prophecies is extensive and thorough. There are often dozens of links within each of these commentaries that bring you to several other places in the Old and New Testament Bible. This Bible also contains 1,400 citations that support each point that is made throughout the 2,400 pages of in-depth commentary and notes.

For the first time, we have the capacity to read through the Bible and see how many events that took place during Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection, were specific fulfillments of an Old Testament prophecy.

I have found that even after four decades of studying, writing and teaching these verses of scripture, my understanding of the Bible has increased dramatically, as a result of studying this Messianic Bible. Understanding these prophecies that Jesus fulfilled, has caused my mind to comprehend the great salvation that He has accomplished for us, in a manner that I never dreamed possible.

It is my hope that you will find a similar result in your own efforts. May the Lord richly bless you as you study His word.

POM CoverToday, approximately 1 Billion people eagerly await the second arrival of Jesus Christ, in fulfillment of His promise to return to earth. Unknown to many people is the fact that the Bible reveals the precise day when Jesus would come to Jerusalem as the Messiah, the first time. The Book of Daniel, chapter 9, contains the most amazing and important prophecy of the entire Bible. In this single chapter, God reveals to us His entire prophetic plan for the last days of earth. He tells us the specific day when Jesus would come, and the precise details of His death for our sins.

When Jesus arrived and announced for the first time in His ministry that “His time had come,” there were very few who were lining the street leading into the city of Jerusalem. About 700 years before Jesus came to the city, Isaiah the prophet had predicted that when Messiah did arrive, there would be very few who would be waiting for Him. (more…)

The prophet Isaiah describes the coming Messiah as both a “Son,” and “the Everlasting Father.” How is this possible?

Isaiah 9:6g For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father

The key to understanding these statements is found by examining the life of Jesus, as He reveals what Isaiah’s words really mean. It is interesting that by a single line of text from Isaiah 9:6, God speaks through this prophet and predicts 11 separate attributes of the Messiah–which must all be fulfilled by one person. If the Messiah will be able to demonstrate that He is the true Savior of the world: He must fulfill every part of Isaiah prophecy.

He will be a human being.
He will be a child.
He will be a Son.
He will be called Wonderful.
He will be called a Counselor.
He will be called Mighty God.
He will be called Everlasting Father.
He will be called Prince of Peace.
Of His kingdom there will be no end.
His kingdom will be established upon the throne of David.
His kingdom will be of righteous judgement and justice forever. (more…)

“70 years,” God told Israel–they would be captive in Babylon. They departed Babylon–precisely on the 70th year (Prophecy 195).

Exactly 70 years after the command to rebuild the second temple at Jerusalem, Jesus predicted this temple would be destroyed (Prophecy 301).

In 70 A.D., Titus destroyed the second temple at Jerusalem. Jesus had predicted its total destruction, just 38 years before, by the words: “not one stone shall be left upon another.”

The first temple was destroyed on August 9th

The second temple was also destroyed on August 9th.

David predicted in Psalm 118 that the Messiah would arrive on the earth and come to the second temple.

Jesus arrived at the temple in Jerusalem, on April 6, 32 A.D, precisely the date that Daniel the prophet had predicted His arrival in Chapter 9 of the book of Daniel–700 years before (Prophecy 309).

The facts surrounding the first two temples at Jerusalem, are truly stunning. We observe a supernatural engineering of time, events, people, and circumstance–placed in order, so that the building and destruction of the first two temples in Israel would be conducted according to a specific plan that God had determined. As-if the Creator of the universe was purposely designing these events so that He might show the world His ability to control and orchestrate every event of history–to fulfill His plans and purposes for mankind.

David wrote a curious Psalm regarding the coming Messiah:

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

When Jesus arrived in Jerusalem, He used this Psalm to confound the religious leaders of Israel. The fact that Jesus is both David’s son and his Lord is confirmed by Jesus’ question to the Pharisees: “How can the coming Christ, the Messiah, be both David’s Son and his Lord?”

Matthew 22:41-45 While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them, saying, “What do you think about the Christ? Whose Son is He?” They said to Him, “The Son of David.” He said to them, “How then does David in the Spirit call Him ‘Lord,’ saying: ‘The LORD said to my Lord, “Sit at My right hand, Till I make Your enemies Your footstool” ’? If David then calls Him ‘Lord,’ how is He his Son?

When Jesus asks this question of the religious leadership of Israel, no one was able to answer Him. This is because it was generally accepted by the Jews that Psalms 110:1 was speaking of the Messiah. If the Messiah is both a son and Lord, He must also be God and man. The idea that God could be dwelling within the person of Jesus Christ, was a reality that was totally unacceptable to the leaders of Israel. Yet, this is exactly what David was predicting when he penned Psalms 110:1.

During the final moments of a person’s life, there is little that he can do to control the events that will take place. Some might say that Jesus was controlling the events surrounding Him as He planned His own death by crucifixion. Is it possible that in order to be thought of as the Messiah that Jesus had carefully planned each step of His death so that they would appear to be a fulfillment of the Old Testament prophecies?

How could a person control the exact words that someone would say about him while he was hanging on a cross? Of course, the supposition that Jesus had anything to do with how the events of His death transpired is pure foolishness. It is obvious that once Jesus was arrested at the Garden of Gethsemane the night before He was crucified, He would have no further control over anything that would happen from that moment on.

Or did He?
