Below is a partial list of the prophecies in the Old and New Testaments. This is not a complete list by any means, and it is not intended to be. Very few people will be converted to Catholicism by being persuaded that Jesus is the Messiah. This whole article is included in this series as a companion piece to the proof that Jesus is divine, and is strongly supported by the article which offers evidence for the Resurrection of Christ.
