The Old Testament prophets fortold the birth of Jesus, where and when He would be born and His Salvific mission.

New Testament prophecy was fulfilled by the birth, life and death and resurrection of the true Messiah, Jesus.

The final prophecy of the New testament is the Apocalypse taking us to the present day.
