Psalms About Christ
—Quoted in the New Testament

Our overview of the Book of Psalms, would not be complete without mention of the “Messianic Psalms” or psalms about Christ.

Some Psalms are classified as "Messianic" because their burden is the suffering and victory of the Messiah, who in Greek is called Christ. These Psalms are quoted in the New Testament when teaching the gospel of Christ (eg Psalms 16:8-11, Acts 2:25-28).

The following table lists prophecies about Christ that are in the book of Psalms, and are quoted in the New Testament.
