Christ In Prophecy
by Dr David Reagan
Most scholars agree that there are about 300 prophecies in the Old Testament that relate to the First Coming of the Messiah. But, these are not 300 different prophecies. Many, like the prophecy that the Messiah Will be born of the seed of Abraham, are repeated several times.
When all the repetitive prophecies are culled out, there remain slightly more than one hundred distinctively different, specific prophecies about the Messiah’s First Advent. These prophecies are outlined in detail later in this chapter.
