Prophecy of Jesus

Isaiah describes Jesus in the eleventh chapter of his prophecy: There shall come forth a shoot from the stump of Jesse, and a branch from his roots shall bear fruit. And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord. A branch would grow out of the roots of Jesse, an agricultural metaphor talking about a family that was not great, but a large tree comes out of the roots. Matthew 3:17 and 17:5 both illustrate that Jesus was the Son of God whom is called His beloved Son with whom the Father is well pleased. In Isaiah 11:3, the prophet starts to describe some of the character of Jesus: And his delight shall be in the fear of the Lord. He shall not judge by what his eyes see, or decide disputes by what his ears hear Jesus delights in the fear of the Lord, and certainly follows the command of Paul to walk with faith, not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7).
