According to mathematician Peter Stoner, the chance of any one single man fulfilling only 48 of the Messianic prophecies in the Tanakh would be 1 in 10157. This number represents the chance of finding, on the very first attempt, one single correct electron out of all of the electrons in all the known mass of the entire known universe.

Yet Yeshua Ha'Natseret fulfilled not just 48 prophecies, and not just the 61 prophecies listed on this page, but he fulfilled more than 324 individual prophecies that the Prophets wrote concerning the Mashiach. We won’t bother to extrapolate the mathematical probability of any one man fulfilling 324 prophecies; the number is beyond the capacity of the human mind to comprehend. This should prove with absolute certainly to anyone with any semblance of an open mind that Yeshua, and only Yeshua, is the Messiah of Israel.

A. Prophecies Concerning His Birth

1. Born the “Seed of Woman” that would “bruise” or “crush” the Serpent’s “head”

PROPHECY

“I will put animosity between you and the woman, and between your descendant and her descendant; He will bruise your head, and you will bruise his heel.” (Genesis 3:15)

“And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between the seed of your offspring and the seed of her offspring; and it shall be that when the offspring of the woman keeps the commandments of the Law, they will aim right (at you) and they will smite you on the head; but when they abandon the commandments of the Law, you will aim right (at them), and you will wound them in the heel. However, for them there will be a remedy, but for you there will be none, and in the future they will make peace with the heel in the days of the king, Messiah.” (Targum Pseudo Jonathan on Beresheet 3:15)

FULFILLMENT

“But when the appointed time arrived, God sent forth his Son. He was born from a woman, born into a culture in which legalistic perversion of the Torah was the norm.” (Galatians 4:4)

But while he was thinking about this, an angel of ADONAI appeared to him in a dream and said, “Yosef, son of David, do not be afraid to take Miryam home with you as your wife; for what has been conceived in her is from the Ruach HaKodesh. She will give birth to a Son, and you are to name Him Yeshsua [which means ‘ADONAI saves’], because He will save His people from their sins.” (Matthew 1:20)

“It was for this very reason that the Son of God appeared, to destroy these doings of the Adversary.” (1 John 3:8)

2. Born of a Virgin

PROPHECY

Therefore ADONAI Himself will give you people a sign: a young woman (almah) will become pregnant, bear a son and name him 'Immanu El [God is with us]. (Isaiah 7:14)

[Some linguists argue that the Hebrew word hml[ (almah) simply means “a young woman of marriageable age,” and that it does not mean a “virgin” in the medical sense of the word, and that the Hebrew word for “virgin” is hlwtb (bethulah). While that may be true, the Jewish Sages who translated the Hebrew Tenach into Greek (the Septuagint) translated hml[ (almah) in this verse as parqenoß (parthenos), which is the Greek medical term for “virgin.”

Thus it is clear that the Sages understood that Ruach HaKodesh, through Yesha`yahu, clearly intended us to understand that Mashiach was to be born of a woman who was medically a virgin.

An additional strong argument to understand that Mashiach would be born of a hlwtb (bethulah) is that under the Torah, any hml[ (almah) who wasn’t also hlwtb (bethulah) would have been executed by stoning.

Dr. Luke, a Greek-speaking physician, in his “biography” of Mashiach uses the word parqenoß (parthenos) to describe the mother of Yeshua.]

FULFILLMENT

Here is how the birth of Yeshua the Messiah took place. When his mother Miryam was engaged to Yosef, before they were married, she was found to be pregnant from the Ruach HaKodesh. Her husband-to-be, Yosef, was a man who did what was right; so he made plans to break the engagement quietly, rather than put her to public shame.

But while he was thinking about this, an angel of ADONAI appeared to him in a dream and said, “Yosef, son of David, do not be afraid to take Miryam home with you as your wife; for what has been conceived in her is from Ruach HaKodesh. She will give birth to a son, and you are to name him Yeshua, [which means “ADONAI saves”] because he will save his people from their sins.”

All this happened in order to fulfill what ADONAI had said through the prophet, “The virgin will conceive and bear a son, and they will call him `Immanu El." (The name means, “God is with us.”) When Yosef awoke he did what the angel of ADONAI had told him to do — he took Miryam home to be his wife, but he did not have sexual relations with her until she had given birth to a son, and he named him Yeshua. (Matthew 1:18-25; see also Luke 1:26-35)

FULFILLMENT

Now the promises were made to Avraham and to his seed. It doesn't say, “and to seeds,” as if to many; on the contrary, it speaks of one — “and to your seed” - and this "one" is the Messiah. (Galatians 3:16)
