Jesus fulfilled the Old Testament Prophecies!

#1–Matthew 1: 22 Now all this took place to fulfill what was spoken by the Lord through the prophet: 23 (S)Behold, the virgin shall be with (T) child and shall bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which translated means, “(U) God with us.” [ (S) Isaiah 7:14; (T)Isaiah9:6-7, (U) Isaiah 8:10]

#2–Matthew 2: 15 He remained there until the death of Herod. This was to fulfill what had been spoken by the Lord through the prophet: “Out of Egypt I called My Son.”

#3–Matthew 2: 17 Then what had been spoken through Jeremiah the prophet was fulfilled: 18 “A voice was heard in Ramah, Weeping and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children; And she refused to be comforted, Because they were no more.”

#4–Matthew 2: 23 and came and lived in a city called Nazareth. This was to fulfill what was spoken through the prophets: “He shall be called a Nazarene.”

#5–Matthew 4: 14 This was to fulfill what was spoken through Isaiah the prophet: 15 The land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, By the way of the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles 16 The people who were sitting in darkness saw a great Light, And those who were sitting in the land and shadow of death, Upon them a Light dawned.” [Isaiah 9:1-2, 60:1-3]

#6–Matthew 8: 17 This was to fulfill what was spoken through Isaiah the prophet: “(R)He Himself took our infirmities and carried away our diseases.”  [ R Isaiah 53:4]

#7–Matthew 12: 15 But Jesus, aware of this, withdrew from there. Many followed Him, and (N)He healed them all, 16 and (O)warned them not to tell who He was. 17 This was to fulfill what was spoken through Isaiah the prophet: 18 (P)Behold, My Servant whom I have chosen; (Q)My Beloved in whom My soul is well-pleased; (R)I will put My Spirit upon Him, (S)And He shall proclaim justice to the Gentiles. 19 (T)He will not quarrel, nor cry out; Nor will anyone hear His voice in the streets. 20 (U)A battered reed He will not break off, And a smoldering wick He will not put out,
Until He leads justice to victory. 21 (V)And in His name the Gentiles will hope.”

#8–Matthew 13:  14 In their case the prophecy of Isaiah is being fulfilled, which says, ‘(J)You will keep on hearing, but will not understand; You will keep on seeing, but will not perceive; 15 (K)For the heart of this people has become dull, With their ears they scarcely hear, And they have closed their eyes, Otherwise they would see with their eyes, Hear with their ears, And understand with their heart and return, And I would heal them.”

#9–Matthew 13: 34 All these things Jesus spoke to the crowds in parables, and He did not speak to them without a parable.35 This was to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet: “(AC)I will open My mouth in parables; I will utter things hidden since the foundation of the world.” [ (AC) Psalms 78:2]

#10–Matthew 21: 4 (C)This took place to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet: (D)Say to the daughter of Zion, Behold your King is coming to you, Gentle, and mounted on a donkey, Even on a colt, the foal of a beast of burden.’” [Isaiah 62:11, Zechariah 9:9]

#11–Matthew 26: 54 How then will the Scriptures be fulfilled, which say that it must happen this way?” 55 At that time Jesus said to the crowds, “Have you come out with swords and clubs to arrest Me as you would against a robber? Every day I used to sit in the temple teaching and you did not seize Me. 56 But all this has taken place to fulfill the Scriptures of the prophets.” Then all the disciples left Him and fled.

#12–Matthew 27: Then that which was spoken through Jeremiah the prophet was fulfilled: “(J)And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of the one whose price had been set by the sons of Israel; 10 (K) and they gave them for the Potter’s Field, as the Lord directed me.” [(J) Zechariah 11:12, (K) Zechariah 11:13]

#13–Matthew 27: 34 (AP) they gave Him wine to drink mixed with gall; and after tasting it, He was unwilling to drink.35 Then they crucified Him, and divided His garments, casting lots, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet: (AR) “They divided My garments among them, And for My clothing they cast lots.” NKJV [(AP ) Psalms 69:21; (AR) Psalms 22:16-18]

Matthew also used quotes from the Old Testament by Jesus:

Matthew 21:13 And He said to them, “It is written, ‘(N)My house shall be called a house of prayer’; but you are making it a (O)robbers den.”… 16  and said to Him, “Do You hear what these children are saying?” And Jesus *said to them, “Yes; have you never read, ‘(R)Out of the mouth of infants and nursing babies You have prepared praise for Yourself’?” [N- Isaiah 56:7, O- Jeremiah 7:11, R- Psalms 8:2]
