6). He would be a prophet (Deuteronomy 18:18-19 and Matthew 21:11).
"I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their
brothers; I will put my words in his mouth, and he will tell them
everything I command him.
If anyone does not listen to my words that the prophet speaks in my
name, I myself will call him to account"
( Big warning here!)
7). He would teach with parables (Psalms 78:2 and Matthew 13:34).
"I will open my mouth in parables,
I will utter hidden things, things from of old"
8. He would enter Jerusalem on a colt (Zechariah 9:9 and Luke 19:35-
The Coming of Zion's King:
"Rejoice greatly, O Daughter of Zion! Shout, Daughter of Jerusalem!
See, your king comes to you, righteous and having salvation,
gentle and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey"
9. He would be betrayed by a friend (Psalms 41:9 and Matthew 26:47-
"Even my close friend, whom I trusted, he who shared my bread,
has lifted up his heel against me"
10. He would be betrayed for 30 pieces of silver (Zechariah 11:12 and
"I told them, "If you think it best, give me my pay; but if not, keep
it." So they paid me thirty pieces of silver."
