Messianic Prophecies and Fulfilments - 3



7. Messiah was to be tried and condemned

Old Testament Prophecies
Isaiah 53:8
8 By oppression and judgment he was taken away. And who can speak of his descendants? For he was cut off from the land of the living; for the transgression of my people he was stricken.

New Testament Fulfilment 
Luke 23:1-25
1 Then the whole assembly rose and led him off to Pilate. 2 And they began to accuse him, saying, We have found this man subverting our nation. He opposes payment of taxes to Caesar and claims to be Christ, a king. 3 So Pilate asked Jesus, Are you the king of the Jews? Yes, it is as you say, Jesus replied. 4 Then Pilate announced to the chief priests and the crowd, I find no basis for a charge against this man. 5 But they insisted, He stirs up the people all over Judea by his teaching. He started in Galilee and has come all the way here. 6 On hearing this, Pilate asked if the man was a Galilean. 7 When he learned that Jesus was under Herod's jurisdiction, he sent him to Herod, who was also in Jerusalem at that time. 8 When Herod saw Jesus, he was greatly pleased, because for a long time he had been wanting to see him. From what he had heard about him, he hoped to see him perform some miracle. 9 He plied him with many questions, but Jesus gave him no answer. 10 The chief priests and the teachers of the law were standing there, vehemently accusing him. 11 Then Herod and his soldiers ridiculed and mocked him. Dressing him in an elegant robe, they sent him back to Pilate. 12 That day Herod and Pilate became friends- before this they had been enemies. 13 Pilate called together the chief priests, the rulers and the people, 14 and said to them, You brought me this man as one who was inciting the people to rebellion. I have examined him in your presence and have found no basis for your charges against him. 15 Neither has Herod, for he sent him back to us; as you can see, he has done nothing to deserve death. 16-17 Therefore, I will punish him and then release him. 18 With one voice they cried out, Away with this man! Release Barabbas to us!
(19 Barabbas had been thrown into prison for an insurrection in the city, and for murder.) 20 Wanting to release Jesus, Pilate appealed to them again. 21 But they kept shouting, Crucify him! Crucify him! 22 For the third time he spoke to them: Why? What crime has this man committed? I have found in him no grounds for the death penalty. Therefore I will have him punished and then release him. 23 But with loud shouts they insistently demanded that he be crucified, and their shouts prevailed. 24 So Pilate decided to grant their demand. 25 He released the man who had been thrown into prison for insurrection and murder, the one they asked for, and surrendered Jesus to their will.

Matthew 27:1,2
1 Early in the morning, all the chief priests and the elders of the people came to the decision to put Jesus to death. 2 They bound him, led him away and handed him over to Pilate, the governor.


8. Messiah was to be silent before his accusers

Old Testament Prophecies
Isaiah 53:7
He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth.

New Testament Fulfilment 
Matthew 27:12-14
12 When he was accused by the chief priests and the elders, he gave no answer. 13 Then Pilate asked him, Don't you hear the testimony they are bringing against you? 14 But Jesus made no reply, not even to a single charge- to the great amazement of the governor.


Mark 15:3-5
The chief priests accused him of many things. 4 So again Pilate asked him, Aren't you going to answer? See how many things they are accusing you of. 5 But Jesus still made no reply, and Pilate was amazed.

Luke 23:8-10
When Herod saw Jesus, he was greatly pleased, because for a long time he had been wanting to see him. From what he had heard about him, he hoped to see him perform some miracle. 9 He plied him with many questions, but Jesus gave him no answer. 10 The chief priests and the teachers of the law were standing there, vehemently accusing him.


9. Messiah was to be struck and spat on by his enemies

Old Testament Prophecies
Isaiah 50:6
I offered my back to those who beat me, my cheeks to those who pulled out my beard; I did not hide my face from mocking and spitting.

New Testament Fulfilment 
Matthew 26:67
Then they spat in his face and struck him with their fists. Others slapped him.

Matthew 27:30
They spat on him, and took the staff and struck him on the head again and again.

Mark 14:65
Then some began to spit at him; they blindfolded him, struck him with their fists, and said, Prophesy! And the guards took him and beat him.
