The King and His Kingdom Pt. IV

--NO BONES BROKEN


Psalm 22:17 

I can count all my bones; people stare and gloat over me. 1000 B.C.

Psalm 34:20 

he protects all his bones, not one of them will be broken. 1000 B.C.


John 19:33; 36a 

But when they came to Jesus and found that he was already dead, they did not break his legs.  These things happened so that the scripture would be fulfilled: "Not one of his bones will be broken,"


It is important to realize that crucifixion victims' legs normally were broken.  And yet, a thousand years before the Crucifixion of Jesus, King David foretold that the Messiah would die in an unusual way. 



--SOLDIERS GAMBLE FOR HIS CLOTHES


Psalm 22:18 

They divide my garments among them and cast lots for my clothing. 1000 B.C.


Matthew 27:35 

When they had crucified him, they divided up his clothes by casting lots.



--BRUTALLY KILLED

Isaiah 53:8 

By oppression and judgment he was taken away. And who can speak of his descendants? For he was cut off from the land of the living; for the transgression of my people he was stricken. 700 B.C.

See all four Gospels.



--ASSIGNED A GRAVE WITH THE WICKED


Isaiah 53:9 

He was assigned a grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death 700 B.C.


Crucifixion was normally reserved for criminals and people the Romans wanted to "make an example of".  As a crucifixion victim, Jesus would have been assigned a grave (if any) with such people.



--BURIED IN A RICH MAN'S TOMB


Isaiah 53:9 

He was assigned a grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death ...  700 B.C.


Matthew 27:57,59-60

As evening approached, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who had himself become a disciple of Jesus. Joseph took the body, wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, and placed it in his own new tomb that he had cut out of the rock. He rolled a big stone in front of the entrance to the tomb and went away.



--THE MESSIAH WOULD RETURN FROM THE DEAD


Isaiah 53:8, 11

[8] By oppression and judgment he was taken away. And who can speak of his descendants? For he was cut off from the land of the living; for the transgression of my people he was stricken. [11] After the suffering of his soul, he will see the light of life and be satisfied; by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many, and he will bear their iniquities. 700 B.C.


Matthew 28:2, 5-7, 9 

There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it.  The angel said to the women, "Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified.  He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.  Then go quickly and tell his disciples: `He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.' Now I have told you."  Suddenly Jesus met them. "Greetings," he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him.
