".Conservative counts say that Jesus fulfilled over 300 specific predictions during his earthly life, death and resurrection. Below are featured 100 of these — including when they happened, and where in the Bible they were predicted and fulfilled.

Of course, some of these predictions are ‘spiritual’ in nature, for example that Jesus would be ‘God-with-us’. Granted: prophecies like these must be accepted (or rejected) as a matter of faith. But the majority of the predictions below are about measurable realities in Jesus’ life — like the fact that he was born into a poor family; in the town of Bethlehem; to a particular tribe of Israel; and so on. They are historically verifiable.

We know His Son’s name! It is Jesus of Nazareth, Jesus the Christ, Jesus the Son of God. He alone fulfilled this breathtaking list of Messianic prophecies:
