The prophecy of the Lord Jesus for our consideration and edification, written centuries prior to His earthly existence is
|and to him shall be the obedience of the peoples.|
|Old Testament Prophecy|
|The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet, until tribute comes to him|
|New Testament Fullfillment|
|So the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered the council and said, “What are we to do? For this man performs many signs.|
If we let him go on like this, everyone will believe in him, and the Romans will come and take away both our place and our nation.”
But one of them, Caiaphas, who was high priest that year, said to them, “You know nothing at all.
Nor do you understand that it is better for you that one man should die for the people, not that the whole nation should perish.”
He did not say this of his own accord, but being high priest that year he prophesied that Jesus would die for the nation,
and not for the nation only, but also to gather into one the children of God who are scattered abroad.
