The prophecy of the Lord Jesus for our consideration and edification, written centuries prior to His earthly existence is
|His delight-the will of the Father|
|Old Testament Prophecy|
|In sacrifice and offering you have not delighted,|
but you have given me an open ear.[a]
Burnt offering and sin offering
you have not required.
Then I said, “Behold, I have come;
in the scroll of the book it is written of me:
I delight to do your will, O my God;
your law is within my heart.”
|New Testament Fullfillment|
|Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to accomplish his work.|
|Consequently, when Christ came into the world, he said, “Sacrifices and offerings you have not desired, but a body have you prepared for me;|
in burnt offerings and sin offerings you have taken no pleasure.
Then I said, ‘Behold, I have come to do your will, O God, as it is written of me in the scroll of the book.'”
When he said above, “You have neither desired nor taken pleasure in sacrifices and offerings and burnt offerings and sin offerings” (these are offered according to the law),
then he added, “Behold, I have come to do your will.” He does away with the first in order to establish the second.
And by that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
