The prophet Isaiah mentioned in Chapter 9:6 about the birth of Jesus: Isa. 9:6 ISV: “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government will be upon his shoulder, and his name is called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”
Besides Manny's answer about Isaiah 9:6, compare Isaiah 7:14 refers to a child who will be born of a virgin and will be called Immanuel, a name meaning "God with us." The verse reads, "Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel." Isaiah 9:6 likewise predicts: "For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace." Add to the above the prophet, Micah, speaking about the coming of Christ in Micah 5:2 where he predicted the exact location of the birth of Jesus: "But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah, who are too little to be among the clans of Judah, from you shall come forth for me one who is to be ruler in Israel, whose coming forth is from of old, from ancient days." There were 2 towns called Bethlehem during this time. The foretelling of Bethlehem Ephrathah in Judah is highly significant.
