I apologize for the formatting, but with a little effort you can see the OT prophecy on the left, the prophecy next and the NT fulfillment on the right. There are 108 here, which is only about 1/3 of the prophecies, but many are repeated.

Old Testament Prophecy New Testament Fulfillment

A. The Messiah's Lineage

Gen 9:26 1) From the Shemite Branch of humanity. Luke 3:36
Gen. 12:3 2) Through Abraham. Matt. 1: 1
Gen 17:21 3) Through Abraham's son, Isaac. Luke 3:34
Gen 28:14 4) Through Isaac's son, Jacob. Luke 3:34
Gen. 49:8 5) Through the tribe of Judah. Luke 3:33-34
lsa. 11:1 6) Through the family of Jesse. Luke 3:32
Jer. 23:5 7) Through the house of David Luke 3:31-32

B. The Messiah's Birth & Childhood

Gen 49:10 1) Timing of birth. According to the Talmud, in about 7AD the Ro-
mans removed the power of the Sanhedrin Council in Judah to
pronounce the death penalty - thus the scepter (power) passed
from Judah. Jesus had been born in 4BC, during the reign of
Herod (Matt.2:1), so "Shiloh" (a Messianic title) had come shortly
before the scepter departed - just as prophesied.
Micah 5:2 2) Place of Birth. Matt. 2:1
1 sa. 9:6 3) Born in the flesh. Luke 2:11

1 sa. 53:2 10) Grow up in obscurity and poverty. Mark 6:3
Isa. 11:1 1 1) Spirit-filled and anointed from birth. Luke 2:46-47

*Matthew's reference is uncertain. Some believe it is derived from Isa. 53:4 where the Messiah is referred to as a pain bearer.
The word for pain here Is 'natzri'. Others say Matthew is referring to lsa. 1 1:1 where the Messiah is referred to as a 'neser' - that is, a "branch" of Jesse.
