The prophecy of the Lord Jesus for our consideration and edification, written centuries prior to His earthly existence is
|He is despised of the Nation|
|Old Testament Prophecy|
|Thus says the Lord,|
the Redeemer of Israel and his Holy One,
to one deeply despised, abhorred by the nation,
the servant of rulers:
“Kings shall see and arise;
princes, and they shall prostrate themselves;
because of the Lord, who is faithful,
the Holy One of Israel, who has chosen you.”
|New Testament Fullfillment|
|He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him.|
|The Jews answered him, “Are we not right in saying that you are a Samaritan and have a demon?”|
Jesus answered, “I do not have a demon, but I honor my Father, and you dishonor me.
|Now it was the day of Preparation of the Passover. It was about the sixth hour. He said to the Jews, “Behold your King!”|
They cried out, “Away with him, away with him, crucify him!” Pilate said to them, “Shall I crucify your King?” The chief priests answered, “We have no king but Caesar.”
