Hey there everyone,

So im looking for some books that explain and go into the prophecy that Jesus fulfills. Not really on 1 prophecy but in the broad sense of all of it and the fulfillment of it through Jesus.

I've found Josh McDowell's, Evidence That Demands a Verdict helpful.

Chapter 9 is titled, Old Testament Prophecies Fulfilled In Jesus Christ. Here's the outline of that chapter: 

I. Introduction

II. The Significance of Messianic Prophecy
God Is the Source of Prophecy
Jesus, Together With the New Testament Writers, Appeals to Messianic Prophecy

III. Objections and Answers Regarding Predictive Prophecy

IV. The Case for Jesus as the Messiah Who Fulfills Scriptural Prophecies
Types and Foreshadowings
Messianic Predictive Prophecies
The Servant Song of Isaiah
Prophecies Regarding the Time of Messiah’s Coming

V. Summary of Old Testament Predictions Literally Fulfilled in Christ
His First Advent
His Forerunner
His Nativity and Early Years
His Mission and Office
His Passion
His Resurrection
His Ascension
His Second Advent
His Universal, Everlasting Dominion

Might also consider some of Michael Brown's volumes on Answering Jewish Objections to Jesus (you can get these volumes individually as well).
