The messianic prophecies in the Old Testament start with a promise of hope and a virgin birth in the Garden of Eden after the fall of humanity in Genesis 3:15. The theme of the Messiah is woven into each book of the Old Testament as a part of Israel’s salvation history specifically as follows: the seed of the woman in Genesis, the Passover lamb in Exodus, the high priest in Leviticus, the pillar of cloud by day and pillar of fire by night in Numbers, the prophet like Moses in Deuteronomy, the captain of salvation in Joshua, the judge/lawgiver in Judges, the kinsman-redeemer in Ruth, the trusted prophet in 1 and 2 Samuel, the reigning king in Kings and Chronicles, the faithful scribe in Ezra, the rebuilder of broken walls and shattered lives in Nehemiah, Mordecai in Esther, the everlasting redeemer in Job, Lord the Shepherd in Psalms, wisdom in Proverbs and Ecclesiastes, the lover and bridegroom in Song of Solomon, the Prince of Peace in Isaiah, the weeping prophet in Jeremiah and Lamentations, the four-faced man in Ezekiel, the fourth man in the fiery furnace in Daniel, the eternal husband married to the backslider in Hosea, the baptizer in the Holy Spirit in Joel, the burden-bearer in Amos, savior in Obadiah, the great missionary in Jonah, the messenger with beautiful feet in Micah, the avenger in Nahum, the evangelist pleading for revival in Habakkuk, the Lord Mighty to Save in Zephaniah, the restorer of the lost heritage of Israel in Haggai, the fountain opened to David for sin and cleansing in Zechariah, and the sun of righteousness rising with healing in his wings in Malachi.
