Bible Verses about Messianic Prophecy

Psalm 22:16 For dogs have surrounded Me; the congregation of the wicked has enclosed Me. They pierced My hands and My feet;

Zechariah 12:10 "And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they have pierced; they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn.

Isaiah 53:5 But He was wounded (pierced) for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.

Luke 23:33-34 And when they had come to the place called Calvary, there they crucified Him, and the criminals, one on the right hand and the other on the left. Then Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do."

John 19:34 one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately blood and water came out.

Key Points:

- Ps 22:16 and Zech 12:10 both speak of the Messiah being "pierced and Isaiah 53:5 speaks of Him being bruised and wounded, and given stripes."

- Ps 22:16 Gives the prophecy of Christ's crucifixion.

- Ps 22:16 Reveals that His hands and His feet would be pierced.

- This passage (Ps 22:16) has been corrupted by the Jews more than any other in the entire Old Testament because it is such a clear prediction of the death (crucifixion) of the Messiah.

- When Jesus cried "My God My God why have You forsaken Me" He was quoting from Psalm 22 because He had actually become a sin offering and bore sin at that moment on the cross.

- In Psalm 22:16 the verb kuwr properly means "to dig, to bore through, to pierce."

- The Septuagint renders it ooruxan "they pierced." The Latin Vulgate the same, "foderunt."

- In Zech 12:10 there is a clear statement that the Yahweh Himself will be pierced.

- Zech 12:10 points far into the future when the Messiah returns and the Jews will mourn over the fact that it was their Messiah whom they had pierced.

- In Zech 12:10 when it says "They shall look upon me ... and they shall mourn for him" there is a clear example of the Trinity in the Old Testament.

- Modern Jewish scholars have made many attempts to avoid concluding that Zech 12:10 is referring to Yahweh-Messiah. They tried to alter the word "me" (eelay) into "him" (eelayw) but they can't get away from the fact that the ancient rabbi's interpreted it as "me" and considered it Messianic.

- The Hebrew word for "pierced is daaqaaruw and is always used of a literal piercing (also see Zech 13:3, where the same Hebrew verb is translated "shall thrust him through").

- According to Zech 12:10 the Jews will one day weep bitterly over Jesus.

- Isaiah 53:5 also speaks of the Messiah being pierced (Heb. chaalal).

- He was wounded and bruised because of our sins.

- The stripes mentioned in Isaiah 53:5 speak of a beating (scourging).

- The emphasis in Is 53:5 is the fact that the Messiah will not be suffering for His own sins.

- In 1 Pet 2:25 Peter declared that by His stripes we are healed.

- John 19:37 - And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him whom they pierced.

- Revelation 1:7 - Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they [also] which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

- Luke 24:39 - Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have. 40 - And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them [his] hands and [his] feet.
