ESV.org


(Quoted in Matthew 1:23)

Isaiah
7:14) Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

9:6) For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
9:7) Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will do this.

11:1) There shall come forth a shoot from the stump of Jesse, and a branch from his roots shall bear fruit.
11:2) 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.

52:13) Behold, my servant shall act wisely; he shall be high and lifted up, and shall be exalted.
52:14) As many were astonished at you- his appearance was so marred, beyond human semblance, and his form beyond that of the children of mankind-
52:15) so shall he sprinkle many nations; kings shall shut their mouths because of him; for that which has not been told them they see, and that which they have not heard they understand.

53:1) Who has believed what he has heard from us? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?
53:2) For he grew up before him like a young plant, and like a root out of dry ground; he had no form or majesty that we should look at him, and no beauty that we should desire him.
53:3) He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief; and as one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
53:4) Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted.
53:5) But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed.
53:6) All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned—every one—to his own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.
53:7) He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth; like a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and like a sheep that before its shearers is silent, so he opened not his mouth.
53:8) By oppression and judgment he was taken away; and as for his generation, who considered that he was cut off out of the land of the living, stricken for the transgression of my people?
53:9) And they made his grave with the wicked and with a rich man in his death, although he had done no violence, and there was no deceit in his mouth.
53:10) Yet it was the will of the Lord to crush him; he has put him to grief; when his soul makes an offering for guilt, he shall see his offspring; he shall prolong his days; the will of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.
53:11) Out of the anguish of his soul he shall see and be satisfied; by his knowledge shall the righteous one, my servant, make many to be accounted righteous, and he shall bear their iniquities.
53:12) Therefore I will divide him a portion with the many, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong, because he poured out his soul to death and was numbered with the transgressors; yet he bore the sin of many, and makes intercession for the transgressors.

2:5) Then he will speak to them in his wrath, and terrify them in his fury, saying,
2:6) "As for me, I have set my King on Zion, my holy hill."
2:7) I will tell of the decree: The LORD said to me, "You are my Son; today I have begotten you.
2:8) Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage, and the ends of the earth your possession.
2:9) You shall break them with a rod of iron and dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel."
2:10) Now therefore, O kings, be wise; be warned, O rulers of the earth.
2:11) Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.

22:16) For dogs encompass me; a company of evildoers encircles me; they have pierced my hands and feet-

5:2) Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace


Galatians

3:11) Now it is evident that no one is justified before God by the law, for "The righteous shall live by faith."


(Sons of Abraham through it)

Galatians
3:7) Know then that it is those of faith who are the sons of Abraham.
3:8 And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying,
     "In you shall all the nations be blessed."

Romans

3:28) For we hold that one is justified by faith apart from works of the law.

4:3) For what does the Scripture say? "Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness."

ESV.org

20:2) "I am the LORD your God,who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.
20:3) "You shall have no other gods before me.
20:4) "You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.
20:5) You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the LORD your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me,
20:6) but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.
20:7) "You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain.
20:8) "Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
20:9) Six days you shall labor, and do all your work,
20:10) but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, you, or your son, or your daughter, your male servant, or your female servant, or your livestock, or the sojourner who is within your gates.

20:20 Moses said to the people, "Do not fear, for God has come to test you, that the fear of him may be before you, that you may not sin."




Works/Law vs. Grace:

ESV.org

(What Role Do "Works of the law", Contribute to mans Righteousness?)

Galatians
2:16) and not by works of the law, because by works of the law no one will be justified.
2:21) if righteousness were through the law, then Christ died for no purpose.

3:10) For all who rely on works of the law are under a curse
3:11) Now it is evident that no one is justified before God by the law, for "The righteous shall live by faith."
3:12) But the law is not of faith, rather "The one who does them shall live by them."
3:13) Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us-for it is written, "Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree"-
3:14) so that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we might receive the promised Spirit through faith.
3:21) Is the law then contrary to the promises of God? Certainly not! For if a law had been given that could give life, then righteousness would indeed be by the law.
3:22) But the Scripture imprisoned everything under sin, so that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe.
3:25) But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a guardian,
3:26) for in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God, through faith.
3:27) For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
3:28) There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
3:29) And if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's offspring, heirs according to promise.

5:4) You are severed from Christ, you who would be justified by the law; you have fallen away from grace.


Romans
3:19) Now we know that whatever the law says it speaks to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be stopped, and the whole world may be held accountable to God.
3:20) For by works of the law no human being will be justified in his sight, since through the law comes knowledge of sin.
3:21) But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law, although the Law and the Prophets bear witness to it-
3:22) the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction:
3:23) for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
3:24) and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus,
3:25) whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God's righteousness, because in his divine forbearance he had passed over former sins.
3:26) It was to show his righteousness at the present time, so that he might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.
3:27) Then what becomes of our boasting? It is excluded. By what kind of law? By a law of works? No, but by the law of faith.
3:28) For we hold that one is justified by faith apart from works of the law.
3:29) Or is God the God of Jews only? Is he not the God of Gentiles also? Yes, of Gentiles also,
3:30) since God is one—who will justify the circumcised by faith and the uncircumcised through faith.
3:31) Do we then overthrow the law by this faith? By no means! On the contrary, we uphold the law.

4:2) For if Abraham was justified by works, he has something to boast about, but not before God.
4:14) For if it is the adherents of the law who are to be the heirs, faith is null and the promise is void.

8:3) For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh,
8:4) in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

9:30) What shall we say, then? That Gentiles who did not pursue righteousness have attained it, that is, a righteousness that is by faith;
9:31) but that Israel who pursued a law that would lead to righteousness did not succeed in reaching that law.
9:32) Why? Because they did not pursue it by faith, but as if it were based on works.

10:4) For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.

11:6) But if it is by grace, it is no longer on the basis of works; otherwise grace would no longer be grace.



Ephesians
2:9) not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
2:10) For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.


Titus
3:5) Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us




The Promise:

("Proto-Gospel" of Messiah to Come Who will crush the Serpents head)

Genesis
3:15) And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring a and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.

12:1) Now the LORD said to Abram, "Go from your country and your kindred and your father's house to the land that I will show you.
12:2) And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing.
12:3) I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed."
12:4) So Abram went, as the LORD had told him, and Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he departed from Haran.
12:5) And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their possessions that they had gathered, and the people that they had acquired in Haran, and they set out to go to the land of Canaan. When they came to the land of Canaan,
12:6) Abram passed through the land to the place at Shechem, to the oak of Moreh. At that time the Canaanites were in the land.
12:7) Then the LORD appeared to Abram and said, "To your offspring I will give this land." So he built there an altar to the LORD, who had appeared to him.

15:1) After these things the word of the LORD came to Abram in a vision: "Fear not, Abram, I am your shield; your reward shall be very great."
15:2) But Abram said, "O Lord GOD, what will you give me, for I continue childless, and the heir of my house is Eliezer of Damascus?"
15:3) And Abram said, "Behold, you have given me no offspring, and a member of my household will be my heir."
15:4) And behold, the word of the LORD came to him: "This man shall not be your heir; your very own son shall be your heir."
15:5) And he brought him outside and said, "Look toward heaven, and number the stars, if you are able to number them." Then he said to him, "So shall your offspring be."
15:6) And he believed the LORD, and he counted it to him as righteousness.
15:7) And he said to him, "I am the LORD who brought you out from Ur of the Chaldeans to give you this land to possess."
15:8) But he said, "O Lord GOD, how am I to know that I shall possess it?"
15:9) He said to him, "Bring me a heifer three years old, a female goat three years old, a ram three years old, a turtledove, and a young pigeon."
15:10) And he brought him all these, cut them in half, and laid each half over against the other. But he did not cut the birds in half.
15:11) And when birds of prey came down on the carcasses, Abram drove them away.
15:12) As the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell on Abram. And behold, dreadful and great darkness fell upon him.
15:13) Then the LORD said to Abram, "Know for certain that your offspring will be sojourners in a land that is not theirs and will be servants there, and they will be afflicted for four hundred years.


Exodus
2:23) During those many days the king of Egypt died, and the people of Israel groaned because of their slavery and cried out for help. Their cry for rescue from slavery came up to God.
2:24) And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob.
2:25) God saw the people of Israel- and God knew.

19:6) and you shall be to me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation. These are the words that you shall speak to the people of Israel."

32:13) Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, your servants, to whom you swore by your own self, and said to them, 'I will multiply your offspring as the stars of heaven, and all this land that I have promised I will give to your offspring, and they shall inherit it forever.'"



(Through Faith)

Romans
4:13) For the promise to Abraham and his offspring that he would be heir of the world did not come through the law but through the righteousness of faith.
4:14) For if it is the adherents of the law who are to be the heirs, faith is null and the promise is void.
4:16) That is why it depends on faith, in order that the promise may rest on grace and be guaranteed to all his offspring



(Sarah will have a Son)

9:6) But it is not as though the word of God has failed. For not all who are descended from Israel belong to Israel,
9:7) and not all are children of Abraham because they are his offspring, but "Through Isaac shall your offspring be named."
9:8) This means that it is not the children of the flesh who are the children of God, but the children of the promise are counted as offspring.
9:9) For this is what the promise said: "About this time next year I will return and Sarah shall have a son."


Galatians
3:14) so that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we might receive the promised Spirit through faith.
3:16) Now the promises were made to Abraham and to his offspring. It does not say, "And to offsprings," referring to many, but referring to one, "And to your offspring," who is Christ.




Abiding:

John
6:56) Whoever feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood abides in me, and I in him.

15:4) Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me.
15:5) I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.


1John
2:28) And now, little children, abide in him, so that when he appears we may have confidence and not shrink from him in shame at his coming

3:23) And this is his commandment, that we believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ and love one another, just as he has commanded us.
3:24) Whoever keeps his commandments abides in him, and he in them. And by this we know that he abides in us, by the Spirit whom he has given us.

4:14) And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world.
4:15) Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.

6:6) But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
6:7) "And when you pray, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do, for they think that they will be heard for their many words.
6:8) Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
6:9) Pray then like this: "Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name.
6:10) Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
6:11) Give us this day our daily bread,
6:12) and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
6:13) And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
6:14) For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you,
6:15) but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

7:22) For I delight in the law of God, in my inner being,
7:23) but I see in my members another law waging war against the law of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin that dwells in my members.
