During the three-year ministry of Jesus, He gave remarkable prophecies.  Remarkable because they happened as He said they would.  Some of these are, and quoted from The Bible, Revised Standard Version:


  1. John 11:1-54 – Jesus learned that Lazarus was ill.  He said (verse 4), “This illness is not unto death; it is for the glory of God, so that the Son of God may be glorified by means of it.”  When Jesus went to see him, he was already dead and had been lying in a tomb for four days (verse 39).  Jesus called Lazarus to come out of the tomb, and the dead man came out.  Because of this miracle, many of the Jews believed in Jesus, thereby glorifying Him, the Son of God, and the One who sent Him.
  2. John 12:32-33 – Jesus said, “I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to myself.”  He said this to show by what death he was to die – by crucifixion.  Was Jesus able to draw all men to Himself?  At this point, not yet, but from Jerusalem some 2,000 years ago, His teachings have spread all over the world, and today, there are about one billion believers.  Not ALL men yet, though.
  3. John 13:21 – “Truly, truly, I say to you, one of you will betray me.”  It was Judas Iscariot who betrayed Jesus by leading a band of soldiers and some officers from the chief priests and the Pharisees (John 18:2) to arrest Jesus at the Garden of Gethsemane.
  4. John 13:38 – Peter said to Jesus that he would lay down his life for Him.  Jesus answered, “Will you lay down your life for me?  Truly, truly, I say to you, the cock will not crow, till you have denied me three times.”  This famous story happened after the arrest of Jesus (John 18:15-27).  Peter followed Jesus.  His first denial of Jesus was when a maid who kept the door asked him, “Are not you also one of this man’s disciples?”  The second denial was while standing and warming before a charcoal fire with servants and officers, they asked, “are not you also one of his disciples?”  The third denial was when asked by a servant of the high priest, a kinsman of the man whose ear Peter had cut off, “Did I not see you in the garden with him?”  After this third denial, at once the cock crowed.


Could you please cite some other prophecies?   We can make a compilation of them.


Some of the prophecies may not have happened yet.  Could you please enumerate them as well.  It does not mean that because they have not happened yet, they will never happen.  They may be prophecies for some distant future yet.


The peace of the true God be with us now and forever.
