How to Find Messianic Prophecies in the Bible

'Mystic Nativity'

This post is from Morris Proctor, certified and authorized trainer for Logos Bible Software. Morris, who has trained thousands of Logos users at his two-day Camp Logos seminars, provides many training materials.

In passages such as Matthew 1:22, 2:5, and 2:17, the Evangelist declares that the specifics regarding the birth of Jesus were fulfillments of prophecy. As I read through these verses again this Christmas season, I wondered, “What other Old Testament prophecies did Jesus fulfill?” Several Logos features and elaborate searches will help answer the question, but I decided to share with you a very quick and easy way to discover some messianic prophecies fulfilled by Jesus.

  • Click the Home icon in the upper left of the program to open the Home Page (A)
  • Type prophecy in the Passage / Topic box in the ribbon of the Home Page (B)
  • Select Prophecies Respecting Christ from the drop down list of topics (C)

Notice Logos opens what I call the Default Home Page Topic Study screen consisting of three tiles:

  • Topic Guide (D)
  • Preferred Bible (E)
  • Topical resources (F)

Messianic prophecies

The primary reason I wanted you to use the Home Page is so you could quickly get to the resources in the lower right tile. Depending on your Library and how you’ve prioritized books, you probably opened at least one of these three resources:

You’ll see that each provides a straightforward list of Old Testament prophecies fulfilled by our Savior!

  1. I tried this but did not get past step 1. I typed prophecy, and id does not pull up prophecies respecting Christ?

  2. Ok, got it to work, had a search "stuck" in the home page and it would not change to get the full "prophecy" search. I typed "prophecy" and hit "GO" and then came back and my search result while typing "prophecy" was entirely different.
