The messianic prophecies of Jesus are one of the most discussed, yet often misunderstood, topics of the Bible. Join one of the world’s leading Scripture scholars in exploring this fascinating subject.

The Messianic Prophecies of Jesus takes you on a gripping journey through history, from the Age of the Prophets to the Babylonian Exile (587 B.C.), and finally to the writing of the Dead Sea Scrolls during the time of Jesus. Along the way, you will explore essential passages in both the Old and New Testaments, shedding light on your understanding of Jesus as the Messiah.

What exactly does the word “messianic” mean? Under the guidance of Fr. Michael Guinan, O.F.M., you will dive into the biblical passages that address the concept of the Messiah, looking at the Davidic covenant and the promise of the “anointed king” in Isaiah, Jeremiah, and the post-exilic prophets. You will also explore how the New Testament address Jesus as the fulfillment of these messianic prophecies.

You will then examine how early Christian texts addressed messianic meanings; as you will see, their texts are about a suffering, innocent servant of God. Finally, you will look back over the road you’ve traveled to ask the most essential questions: In what sense can we say that the Old Testament “predicts” Jesus as Messiah? And what does it mean to say that Jesus fulfills such promises?

This course was created for Christians who wish to explore Scripture and faith.

Praise for Michael Guinan

“I first attended a lecture by Father Guinan about 20 years ago and immediately recognized him as a great teacher. He brings top-notch scholarship, excellent delivery, and a strong pastoral sense to every project. Teaching in the Philippines has given him a very broad vision.”
– Father Pat McCloskey, O.F.M.,  “Ask a Franciscan” columnist for St. Anthony Messenger

“Fr. Michael Guinan is a great communicator and one of those teachers who is able to assimilate a lot of material… and communicate it all in a concise, clear, and often humorous way. It is no wonder that he is a very popular teacher in the NYKM series.”
– Fr. Robert J. Karris, O.F.M., Research Professor, Franciscan Institute, St. Bonaventure University
