Christ of the Manger IS Christ of the Prophecies

by H.G. Bishop Moussa

In the final part of this series, His Grace Bishop Moussa provides an extensive and amazing catalog of all the prophecies in Old Testament that discussed Christ's birth, passion, death, resurrection and ascension. A must read! You may want to save or bookmark this excellent resource for future reference!


Through 300 prophecies the Old Testament mentions all the details concerning Lord Jesus' life on earth. That is why we say that Christ of the manger is Christ of the prophecies. He is the One whom the wisemen were waiting for according to their studies based on the prophecy of Balaam. The Jews also were waiting for Him. They knew the date of His birth, through the Book of Daniel and the place of His birth through the Book of Micah. Truly, our God is of both Testaments. Our Christ is the Christ of the whole world. Following are some prophecies from the Old Testament about our Lord Jesus Christ and their fulfillment in the New Testament. These help us observe the deep connection between the two holy Testaments; the Old and the New.

For we have come to worship Him. 3 When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. 4 And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he inquired of them where the Christ was to be born. 5 So they said to him In Bethlehem of Judea, for thus it is written by the prophet 6 But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, Are not the least among the rulers of Judah; For out of you shall come a Ruler who will shepherd My people Israel”.

  • Psa. 45:6-8 (NKJV) “Your throne, O God is forever and ever; A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of your kingdom. 7 You love righteousness and hate wickedness; Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You with the oil of gladness more than your companions 8 All Your garments are scented with myrrh and aloes and cassia, Out of the ivory palaces, by which they have made you glad”.

20- Buying The Potter’s Field:

  • Mat. 27:6-10 (NKJV) “But the chief priests took the silver pieces and said, “It is not lawful to put them into the treasury, because they are the price of blood”. 7 And they consulted together and bought with them the potter’s field, to bury strangers in 8 therefore that field has been called the Field of Blood to this day. 9 Then was fulfilled what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet saying “And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the value of Him who was priced, whom they of the children of Israel priced 10 and gave them for the potter’s field, as the Lord directed me”.

21- Judas’ Discipleship Shall Be Given to Another:

Jesus came, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, “Peace to you!” 27 Then He said to Thomas, Reach your finger here, and look at My hands; reach your hands here, and put it into My side.

  • John 19:34-37 (NKJV) “But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately blood and water came out. 35 And he who has seen has testified, and his testimony is true; and he knows that he is telling the truth, so that you may believe. 36 For these things were done that the Scripture should be fulfilled, Not one of His bones shall be broken 37 And again another Scripture says, They shall look on Him whom they pierced.”
  • John 20:27 (NKJV) “Then He said to Thomas, “Reach your finger here, and look at My hands; and reach your hand here, and put it into My side. Do not be unbelieving, but believing.”

If you meditate on all these prophecies about the Eternal annointment of the Lord Christ, His Incarnation, Crucifixion, Resurrection and Ascension, you will discover the holiness of the Old testament and the importance of connecting both Testaments. For our Christ, is the Christ of the both Testaments and no doubt Christ of the manger is Christ of the Prophecies. Prov 8:23 (NKJV) “I have been established from everlasting, from the beginning, before there was ever an earth”.

Micah 5:2 (NKJV) “But you Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of you shall come forth to Me The one to be Ruler in Israel, From everlasting.”
