Jesus Christ-
The eternal Son of God, who was born of the Virgin Mary, suffered crucifixion and death, rose from the dead and ascended into heaven, and will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead.

"Jesus," which means "God Saves" in Hebrew, was the name given him at the Annunciation; "Christ" is a title which comes from the Greek translation of the Hebrew Messiah and means "annointed".

Isaiah's "Servant of the Lord" Oracles

These are the four Servant of the Lord oracles from the Book of the Prophet Isaiah. Though many identifications have been proposed for the Servant, Christians see these prophecies fulfilled in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

The 22nd Psalm

The 22nd Psalm is one of the most important messianic psalms. Jesus Christ fulfills its propheses in his suffering death, joyful resurrection, and heavenly reign.
