Jesus Christ was the Messiah. He was foretold by all of the prophets and was written of in the psalms and throughout the Old Testament.
The Book of Matthew in the Bible gives the gospel account of Jesus as fulfillment of Bible prophesy for the Jews, the true Israelites. Psalm 22 tells what it is like to be crucified. The Book of Hebrews is also very pertinent.
