This is a collection of Psalms that predict the coming of Jesus. To read the corresponding passages from the New Testament click on NEXT at the bottom of the psalm. I did this section of the website this way because the psalms are long and I was concerned about the time it takes to load a page. The whole psalm is included so the passages may be read in context to the rest of the words that these passages are found in.
