The New Testament frequently cites Jewish scripture to support the claim of the Early Christians that Jesus was the promised Jewish Messiah, but few of these citations are actual predictions in their original context.[1] The majority of these quotations and references are taken from the Book of Isaiah, but they range over the entire corpus of Jewish writings.

Jews do not regard any of these as having been fulfilled by Jesus, and in some cases do not regard them as messianic prophecies at all. Old Testament prophecies about Jesus are either not thought to be prophecies by biblical scholars (as the verses make no claim of predicting anything) or do not explicitly refer to the Messiah.[2][3][4][5][6][7] Historical criticism is unable to argue for the fulfillment of prophecy or that Jesus was indeed the Messiah because he fulfilled messianic propheciesas historical criticism has no way to "construct such an argument" within that academic method, as that is a theological claim rather than a secular academic claim.[8]
