The Death of Christ and the Scriptures

Labels: , , .

John's Gospel presents the death of Christ from a perspective that it was pre-determined in the Scriptures.

Tunic of His Crucifixion
"They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be: that the Scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, They parted My raiment among them, and for My vesture they did cast lots. These things therefore the soldiers did." John 19:24

Thirst before His Death
"After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst." John 19:28

Treatment of His Body
"For these things were done, that the Scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken." John 19:36

Testimony (Totality) of the Scriptures
"And again another Scripture saith, They shall look on Him whom they pierced." John 19:37
