Predictive, Ecstatic and Formative

mouth 2There are over 300 direct regularly recognised prophecies relating to Jesus in the Old Testament. But that is just the start of it, in additions there are hidden prophecies, in people’s names and in the Hebrew Text; The experience of the Cross creeps into peoples prayers and worship; and there are prophecies that are more formative for Jesus, passages that would have spoken to Jesus to give him direction and shape his decisions at key moments of his earthly life.

I’ve not seen too much written about these, and they often take a bit of time to lay out and explain. But I hope to get some examples posted here, so keep an eye out for them . In the meantime find all the most recent posts on Jesus and Prophecy here.
