Introduction

The Old Testament prophesies of the Messiah that he would come to justify many people.

Old Testament Prophecy

After the suffering of his soul,
he will see the light of life and be satisfied ;
by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many,
and he will bear their iniquities. [Isaiah 53:11 NIV]

New Testament Fulfillment

Through him everyone who believes is justified from everything you could not be justified from by the law of Moses. [Acts 13:39 NIV]

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him! [Romans 5:8-9 NIV]

Consequently, just as the result of one trespass was condemnation for all men, so also the result of one act of righteousness was justification that brings life for all men. [Romans 5:18 NIV]

And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. [1 Corinthians 6:11 NIV]

For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive by the Spirit, [1 Peter 3:18 NIV]
