Prophecy Fulfilled in Jesus Christ

Matthew 2

 

Matthew 2:23b  This was to fulfill what was spoken through the prophets:  "He shall be called a Nazarene."

 

Purpose:  God fulfilled His promises in Jesus's Childhood

 

1.  The King’s Birthplace Prophesied and Fulfilled

Matthew 2:1 Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, magi from the east arrived in Jerusalem, saying, 2 “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we saw His star in the east and have come to worship Him.” 3 When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. 4 Gathering together all the chief priests and scribes of the people, he inquired of them where the Messiah was to be born. 5 They said to him, “In Bethlehem of Judea; for this is what has been written by the prophet:

6       ‘AND YOU, BETHLEHEM, LAND OF JUDAH,

         ARE BY NO MEANS LEAST AMONG THE LEADERS OF JUDAH;

         FOR OUT OF YOU SHALL COME FORTH A RULER

         WHO WILL SHEPHERD MY PEOPLE ISRAEL.’”

7   Then Herod secretly called the magi and determined from them the exact time the star appeared. 8 And he sent them to Bethlehem and said, “Go and search carefully for the Child; and when you have found Him, report to me, so that I too may come and worship Him.” 9 After hearing the king, they went their way; and the star, which they had seen in the east, went on before them until it came and stood over the place where the Child was. 10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced exceedingly with great joy. 11 After coming into the house they saw the Child with Mary His mother; and they fell to the ground and worshiped Him. Then, opening their treasures, they presented to Him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. 12 And having been warned by God in a dream not to return to Herod, the magi left for their own country by another way.

 

The Babe is King Jesus

King Jesus is Greater than King Herod

FULFILLMENT of: Birthplace, Micah 5:2

     Micah is an 8th c. prophet, contemporary of Isaiah, 760 B.C. to Judah

      Jesus Is Born the Shepherd Ruler

God Sovereignly watches over the Babe King Jesus (2:12)

Does a baby have any decision about where he is born?

 

2.  God Sovereignly Protects the Babe King Jesus a Second Time, Fulfilling Scripture

Matthew 2:13 Now when they had gone, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, “Get up! Take the Child and His mother and flee to Egypt, and remain there until I tell you; for Herod is going to search for the Child to destroy Him.” 14 So Joseph got up and took the Child and His mother while it was still night, and left for Egypt. 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.”

God tells Joseph and Mary to flee to Egypt with Jesus

FULFILLMENT: “out of Egypt” Hosea 11:1; Numbers 24:8; Exodus 4:22

These OT passage refer to Israel, but here Jesus fulfills them

Jesus is the True Israel

 

3.  Even the Evil Schemes Against Jesus are a Fulfillment

Matthew 2:16 Then when Herod saw that he had been tricked by the magi, he became very enraged, and sent and slew all the male children who were in Bethlehem and all its vicinity, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had determined from the magi. 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.”

 

            FULFILLMENT: Jeremiah 31:15

            Jeremiah is a 7th c. prophet to Judah

 

4.  God Sovereignly Watches Over the Babe King Jesus a Third Time (2:19, 22)

Matthew 2:19 But when Herod died, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt, and said, 20 “Get up, take the Child and His mother, and go into the land of Israel; for those who sought the Child’s life are dead.” 21 So Joseph got up, took the Child and His mother, and came into the land of Israel. 22 But when he heard that Archelaus was reigning over Judea in place of his father Herod, he was afraid to go there. Then after being warned by God in a dream, he left for the regions of Galilee, 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.”

 

God tells Joseph and Mary to return with Jesus to Nazareth

FULFILLMENT: He shall be called a Nazarene

The reputation of the Babe King Jesus was Predetermined, Prophesied,                    Fulfilled

The theme of the despised Messiah is repeated in Matthew 8:20; 11:16–19;              15:7–8

Psalms 22:6–8, 13; 69:8, 20–21; Isaiah 11:1; 49:7; 53:2–3, 8; Daniel 9:26; John 1:46
