Earlier in this Easter season, I posted an article about Jesus’ fulfillment of Isaiah’s first three Servant Songs. Elsewhere, I’ve posted a collection of articles on other Easter prophecies, and you can go here to find a collection of posts we’ve written on prophecy fulfillment more broadly. As we think about the resurrection, the gospel, and the fulfillment of these prophecies, we should consider how much God has given us that previous generations longed for.
“As to this salvation, the prophets who prophesied of the grace that would come to you made careful searches and inquiries, seeking to know what person or time the Spirit of Christ within them was indicating as he predicted the sufferings of Christ and the glories to follow. It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves, but you, in these things which now have been announced to you through those who preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven – things into which angels long to look.” (1 Peter 1:10-12)
