Concerning the Magnificent and August Names and Titles of the Messiah in the Old Testament by John Gill

originally posted 6/15/2015

The following is chapter 13 of John Gill's book The Prophecies of the Old Testament Respecting the Messiah. I have highlighted (and sometimes also made bold) some passages that support the Messiahship of Jesus and His Full Deity. The many typographical errors are probably due to uncorrected optical character recognition scanning errors. The entire book can be read at the following links.
