Jesus is found everywhere in the Bible – from the New Testament which tells about him, and the Old Testament which prophesies of him. The table below shows just how much there is in the Old Testament about him. He could not have arranged to have these prophecies fulfilled concerning himself. It would also be virtually impossible for some of them to fit together to match the same one man. Yet they did.
