New Testament Isaiah
Isaiah is an "Old" Testament book of Prophecy, but like most of the other Hebrew prophetic books, it is about "New" Testament fulfillments, some up to now, many others yet in the future. It's the reason that they are so often quoted in the New Testament.
From Isaiah, describing the result of Christ's Crucifixion, for Him, and for all of humanity:
"52:14 As many were astonied at thee; his visage was so marred more than any man [see The Torturers Of Christ], and his form more than the sons of men: 52:15 So shall he sprinkle many nations; the kings shall shut their mouths at him: for that which had not been told them shall they see; and that which they had not heard shall they consider." (Isaiah 52:14-15 KJV)
"This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears"
The "Old" Testament provides details of the life of Jesus Christ that sometimes provide more detail, before the fact, than the New Testament record does.
"53:1 Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed? 53:2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him [see What Did Jesus Look Like?]. 53:3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not [see also Eloi, Eloi, Lama Sabachthani?].
"4:16 And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day [see How To Be A True Christian - Lesson 4], and stood up for to read [see Aliyya and Haftara]. 4:17 And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, 4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, 4:19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
