What are the Jewish prophecies that Jesus did not fulfill?


There are 23 Jewish messianic prophecies. They must all be fulfilled – and in one normal, mortal lifetime. There is no ‘second coming‘ in Judaism!

To qualify as maschiach, a person must thus fulfill them all *before* he dies.

Here are the actual prophecies:

* The Sanhedrin will be re-established (Isaiah 1:26)


* Once he is King, leaders of other nations will look to him for guidance. (Isaiah 2:4)


* The whole world will worship the One God of Israel (Isaiah 2:17)



* He will be descended from King David (Isaiah 11:1) via King Solomon (1 Chron. 22:8-10)


* The Moshiach will be a man of this world, an observant Jew with “fear of God” (Isaiah 11:2)


*****In other words – this must all be accomplished in a human lifetime*****

* Evil and tyranny will not be able to stand before his leadership (Isaiah 11:4)


* Knowledge of God will fill the world (Isaiah 11:9)
