Lesson 8 - The Prophets





How can we adequately do justice to the ways in which the prophets foretold the coming of the Messiah, Jesus Christ?  When we think about a prophet, we naturally think in terms of that prophet foretelling of a future event – in this case the coming of the Messiah.  However, the prophets did so much more than just foretell the future.  In fact, the main job of the prophet was not to foretell the future, but rather the main job of the prophet was to call the people of God to repentance.  It just so happens that foretelling some aspect of the future was often a part of that process.  The idea of the Messiah became a necessary hope in order to balance the doom and gloom prophecies that were necessary because of Israel’s disobedience.   The prophetic message, therefore, often had the following formula:

(a) Repent and return to God

(b) Since you have not repented, punishment is inevitable

(c)  Punishment will only be temporary; God will restore you

(d) God will send the Messiah as a final solution

Through this formula, therefore, the prophets gave us many insights into the coming of the Messsiah.  Most prophets in the Old Testament had at least something to say about the coming of the Messiah.  As such, there are many, many prophecies about the Messiah in the Old Testament.   If we tried to cover all of the important ones, this lesson would be an entire course in itself.   In fact, at the end of this lesson, there is a list of 365 prophecies of Christ from the Old Testament – one prophecy for each day of the year.  It is a good reference list to have at your disposal.  However, there are several very key prophecies of the Messiah that are of particular importance. Each has something critical to say about Jesus Christ.  Those are the ones we will discuss in this lesson.



The Suffering Servant (Isaiah)


In Mark 10:45, Jesus says that he did not come into the world to be served, but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many.  The idea of the Messiah as a Suffering Servant was not on the minds of the Jewish people during the time of Christ.  They were looking for a political leader who would be their king.  Yet one of their greatest prophets, Isaiah, foretold of the humiliation of the Messiah long before he was born. 

Isaiah was the prophet who made the last prophetic efforts to turn the Northern Kingdom of Israel back to God before they were destroyed by the Assyrians.  He spent his days among the elite and religious leaders of Israel, trying to convince them to turn away from their idols and back to God. 

There are four passages in the book that he wrote that are often referred to as the “Servant Songs” because they speak of the servant nature of the messiah.  In Jesus’ time, Jewish scholars generally did not believe that these servant songs represented a person, but rather the nation of Israel itself, and in context there is some validity to that.  However, the specifics of these four songs are such that they are very much pointing to a person who is capable of brining salvation rather than a nation.  Identifying the songs with the nation of Israel, therefore, creates some problems.  Isaiah was clearly looking for a person, but that person must both represent the nation of Israel and bring about salvation all at the same time.  This is Jesus Christ.


Isaiah 42:1-4

1 Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.


2 He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street.


3 A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth.


4 He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law.


The first servant song clearly speaks to the appointment of the servant by God himself, who anoints the servant and places his spirit upon him.   The servant will be the bringer of justice to all the earth and will succeed in his mission.  This song, therefore, removes any doubt that the servant of Isaiah is indeed the coming anointed one, the Messaiah.


Isaiah 49:3-6

3 And said unto me, Thou art my servant, O Israel, in whom I will be glorified.


4 Then I said, I have laboured in vain, I have spent my strength for nought, and in vain: yet surely my judgment is with the Lord, and my work with my God.


5 And now, saith the Lord that formed me from the womb to be his servant, to bring Jacob again to him, Though Israel be not gathered, yet shall I be glorious in the eyes of the Lord, and my God shall be my strength.


6 And he said, It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth.


The second servant song appears at first to be speaking of the nation of Israel itself, but upon further inspection, there is a clear intention towards an individual.  Israel then, is only representative of the individual.  The song assigns to the servant the task of bringing God’s people to repentance and back to fellowship with God.  However, there is an acknowledgement that all of Israel may not be responsive to that calling.  As such, the servant is made a light of salvation to all of the earth, even the gentiles.   This is clearly Jesus, who made reconciliation possible with God through his death and who calls all men of all nations – gentiles and Jews alike – to faith in him.


Isaiah 50:4-9

4 The Lord God hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary: he wakeneth morning by morning, he wakeneth mine ear to hear as the learned.


5 The Lord God hath opened mine ear, and I was not rebellious, neither turned away back.


6 I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair: I hid not my face from shame and spitting.


7 For the Lord God will help me; therefore shall I not be confounded: therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed.


8 He is near that justifieth me; who will contend with me? let us stand together: who is mine adversary? let him come near to me.


9 Behold, the Lord God will help me; who is he that shall condemn me? lo, they all shall wax old as a garment; the moth shall eat them up.


The third servant song introduces the idea that the servant will have a need to be obedient in a difficult and painful task.  He will be abused and riled, but will remain steadfast in the face of his appointed adversity.  The song points to God as the one who exalts the servant for his obedience. 

However, it is in the fourth servant song that this idea of a Suffering Servant becomes fully formed.


Isaiah 52:13-53:12  -

52:13 Behold, my servant shall deal prudently, he shall be exalted and extolled, and be very high.


14 As many were astonied at thee; his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men:


15 So shall he sprinkle many nations; the kings shall shut their mouths at him: for that which had not been told them shall they see; and that which they had not heard shall they consider.


53:1 Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?


2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.


3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.


4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.


5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.


6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.


7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.


8 He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.


9 And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.


10 Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.


11 He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.


12 Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.


This passage represents one of the most important prophetic passages in all of scripture regarding the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.  It begins with his exaltation followed immediately by an event so devastating that he is described as being marred more than any other man.  This is clearly in reference to the flogging and beating that Jesus endured prior to his crucifixion.  The song goes on to describe in detail the punishment he receives, but points out that it is not punishment for his transgressions, but for our transgressions.  We are reminded that this was not some tragedy of evil because he is still considered a “righteous servant” (verse 11). Rather, this was God’s purpose from the beginning, for his punishment “pleased the Lord” (verse 10). 

In this fourth song, we see all the aspects of the Mosaic Law beginning to come together in final fulfilment in the person of Jesus Christ.  We see his pain and his sorrow.  We see him as the sacrificial lamb.  We see that through this punishment he will be the “scapegoat” required by the Mosaic law – the one who would carry away the sins of the people.  We see that it leads to his death, where he can do battle with the grave itself – yet we see him ultimately becoming victorious over it, prolonging his days through the resurrection.   Finally, we see our salvation in it.  We see that it is for our sake he has done this, being wounded for our transgressions and bruised for our iniquities, but all the while making a way for us to be healed.



The Bride of the Adulterous Woman (Hosea)


Hosea was a contemporary of Isaiah, serving as a prophet to the Northern Kingdom of Israel.  Like Isaiah, Hosea was given the task of calling Israel to repentance.  However, where Isaiah was sent to the elite and rulers, Hosea was called by God to allow the circumstances of his life to be a living picture of how God viewed the wanderings of the Israelites. 

Throughout the Old Testament, Israel is depicted as an adulterous bride, wandering from God the way an adulterous woman would wander from her husband.  To show God’s displeasure in the wanderings of Israel in the most dramatic way possible, God instructs Hosea in Chapter 1 to take a prostitute as a bride. He then instructs Hosea to name his first two children “No Mercy” and “Not My People” to show that God intended to remove both his name and his mercy from the Northern Kingdom of Israel.

God then instructed Hosea to love his adulterous wife despite the fact that she had gone after other lovers.  In fact, his wife had become a slave of her prostitution and Hosea was required to purchase his wife’s freedom for 15 shekels of silver and 3 bushels of barley.  Hosea spoke gently to his wife, lovingly encouraging her to dwell with him. 

In the book of Hosea, God explains how Hosea’s situation is a metaphor for Israel – and by extension, all of us.  Israel had pursued other Gods and yet God continued to bless her.  God allowed Israel to pursue other Gods, but ultimately he must remove his blessing and punish her wickedness.  Nevertheless, a day will come when God would once again pursue his bride.   And in Hosea 11, we find the true heart of God and how he will resolve the dilemma.


8 How shall I give thee up, Ephraim? how shall I deliver thee, Israel? how shall I make thee as Admah? how shall I set thee as Zeboim? mine heart is turned within me, my repentings are kindled together.


9 I will not execute the fierceness of mine anger, I will not return to destroy Ephraim: for I am God, and not man; the Holy One in the midst of thee: and I will not enter into the city.


God’s love for Israel and for the whole world cannot be denied.  Like Hosea, God will pursue his beloved until they love him in return.  As part of that pursuit, God came in the flesh in the form of Jesus.  Jesus is the Holy One in the midst of thee.  And where verse 9 says “I will not enter the city,” that phrase can also be translated – I will not enter (come) in wrath.  In other words, when God does come, it will not be in wrath, but in love.   That is how Jesus came, not in wrath, but in love for the whole world.   And just as Hosea redeemed his bride from captivity, so Jesus redeemed us with his own life.   God woos us with his love – making a great sacrifice to redeem us from the slavery of sin and death – and in return, we bind ourselves to him in gratitude.

As a result, the idea of God as a groomsman and his people as his bride (illustrated through the story of Hosea) finds its ultimate fulfilment in the New Covenant, with Jesus Christ as the bridegroom and the church as the bride.  The concept was introduced first by John the Baptist in John 3:29 when he refers to himself as the friend of the bridegroom and Jesus as the bridegroom.  Then on several occasions (Matthew 9, Matthew 25, Mark 2, Luke 5), Jesus used the metaphor of the bride and bridegroom to describe how he would go away and return again – referring to his second coming.   In Ephesians 5:22-33, Paul actually goes so far as to say that the whole idea of marriage was instituted by God in the Garden of Eden as a picture of what would one day become the relationship of Jesus Christ to his church.   Then finally, beginning in Revelation chapter 18 and continuing through chapter 22, we begin seeing the final and full completion of the bride and the bridegroom coming together, to be together forever and ever.



The Maker of a New Covenant (Jeremiah)


After the destruction of the Northern Kingdom of Israel, Judah began to also turn away from God.   Jeremiah was the major prophet involved in the last attempt to bring Judah back to God before bringing upon them destruction and Babylonian captivity.  However, as with most doom and gloom prophecies in the Old Testament, Jeremiah’s prophecies came with a promise and hope of future restoration.  Part of that promise and hope is the return of God’s people back to their home land of Israel.  However, in Jeremiah 31:31-34, we get insight into the establishment of a New Covenant that God will make with his people


31 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:


32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the Lord:


33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.


34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the Lord: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.


The promise associated with this New Covenant would be a whole new way of knowing and understanding God’s law and his righteous ways.  It would be completely different from the Mosaic Covenant.  That covenant was conditional and harsh, with promises of both blessings and cursing depending upon one’s faithfulness in keeping its requirements.  The New Covenant would not be a covenant of rules and regulations, but rather a covenant of relationship, with God himself impressing his holy law on our hearts.  And to the extent God’s people do commit sinful acts, rather than punish and curse them, God will forgive them.

This New Covenant is a radical change from the Old Covenant and there is only one way in which it could be managed.  God’s justice requires that transgressors be punished.  Therefore, someone must take on that punishment.  Otherwise, this New Covenant could not be enforced.  This is where Jesus Christ comes into the picture.  The New Covent would be brought to pass by the obedience of Jesus Christ through his death on the cross, his burial, and his resurrection from the dead.  In fact, Jesus himself initiates the beginning of the New Covenant during the Last Supper.  As he holds up the cup filled with wine in Luke 22:20, he says “This cup is the new testament [i.e., New Covenant] in my blood, which is shed for you.” 

The Old Covenant, with all its regulations and ritual was completely fulfilled in Jesus Christ, who superseded that Covenant with the Covenant of his blood.  Rather than have laws engraved on stone tablet, Jesus sends the Holy Spirit, who writes the law of God on the hearts of believers.



The Heart of Flesh (Ezekiel)


While Judah was in exile in Babylon, the prophet Ezekiel expanded upon the revelation of the New Covenant prophesied by Jeremiah.  In Ezekiel 11:17-20, God promises the people he will bring them back from captivity and says


17 Therefore say, Thus saith the Lord God; I will even gather you from the people, and assemble you out of the countries where ye have been scattered, and I will give you the land of Israel.


18 And they shall come thither, and they shall take away all the detestable things thereof and all the abominations thereof from thence.


19 And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh:


20 That they may walk in my statutes, and keep mine ordinances, and do them: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God.


How would he give them one heart and turn their heart from stone to flesh?  He would give them his Spirit.  This idea of turning a heart of stone into a heart of flesh is a picture of going from death to life.  Through this heart of flesh, therefore, the people – once dead but now alive - would have the ability to keep the laws and statutes of God.  This is the work of the Holy Spirit, given by the one through whom hat life is given, Jesus Christ.  Paul confirms that it is the Holy Spirit that causes this transformation, saying in 2 Corinthians 3:3, “Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart.”



The Son of Man (Daniel)


God showed Daniel many things concerning the end of the age.  Much of our “end times” understanding must be interpreted in light of the visions that God gave to Daniel.  However, just as much of what we know about the end times can be frightening, much of what God showed to Daniel troubled him as well.  Scripture says he was “grieved” in his spirit.  To temper his troubled spirit, God gave Daniel a vision of the messiah as a conquering king.


Daniel 7:13-18

13 I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.


14 And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.


15 I Daniel was grieved in my spirit in the midst of my body, and the visions of my head troubled me.


16 I came near unto one of them that stood by, and asked him the truth of all this. So he told me, and made me know the interpretation of the things.


17 These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth.


18 But the saints of the most High shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever.


It is in part because of this prophecy (and prophesies similar to it in the minor prophets like Habakkuk, Zephaniah, and Zechariah) that the Jewish people were expecting the Messiah to be a political leader who would free them from the oppression of the Roman Empire.  The prophecy clearly depicts the Messiah as a victorious king.

We know now, however, that these verses are not referring to the first advent of the Messiah, but rather are referring to a future time when Jesus Christ will make his second advent.  End times prophecy speaks of the time when Jesus will return for/with his bride, the church, and conquer all of the enemies of the earth.  At that time he will set up a kingdom where he is King of Kings and Lord and Lords. 

We are told here that this event shall take place when the Messiah comes on the clouds, having been given all authority by the Ancient of Days.  Jesus told his disciples just before he ascended into heaven that all authority in heaven and on earth had been given to him (Matthew 28:18), so when he returns, he will have met the requirement of this prophecy.

Likewise, in Acts chapter 1, when Jesus ascended into heaven on the clouds, the angel said, “Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven” (Acts 1:11).  Paul also declares this in 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17, saying


15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.


16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:


17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.


This prophecy in Daniel, therefore, is about the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.  When Jesus returns, therefore, we can be assured that this time it will be as a victorious king, riding into battle to take his kingdom by force.
