Last week we looked at the prophecy that the Messiah would be called the cornerstone. Today’s Old Testament prophesy tells us that the Messiah would also be a stone of stumbling.
Old Testament Prophecy
The stone the builders rejected
has become the capstone; [Psalm 118:22 NIV]
and he will be a sanctuary;
but for both houses of Israel he will be
a stone that causes men to stumble
and a rock that makes them fall.
And for the people of Jerusalem he will be
a trap and a snare. [Isaiah 8:14 NIV]
