Messianic Prophecies and Fulfilments - 5
14. Others were to cast lots for Messiah's garments
Old Testament PropheciesThey divide my garments among them and cast lots for my clothing.
New Testament FulfilmentWhen they had crucified him, they divided up his clothes by casting lots.
John 19:23, 24When the soldiers crucified Jesus, they took his clothes, dividing them into four shares, one for each of them, with the undergarment remaining. This garment was seamless, woven in one piece from top to bottom. 24 Let's not tear it, they said to one another. Let's decide by lot who will get it. This happened that the scripture might be fulfilled which said,They divided my garments among them and cast lots for my clothing.So this is what the soldiers did.
15. Messiah's bones were not to be broken
Old Testament PropheciesIt must be eaten inside one house; take none of the meat outside the house. Do not break any of the bones.
New Testament FulfilmentNow it was the day of Preparation, and the next day was to be a special Sabbath. Because the Jews did not want the bodies left on the crosses during the Sabbath, they asked Pilate to have the legs broken and the bodies taken down. 32 The soldiers therefore came and broke the legs of the first man who had been crucified with Jesus, and then those of the other. 33 But when they came to Jesus and found that he was already dead, they did not break his legs. 34 Instead, one of the soldiers pierced Jesus' side with a spear, bringing a sudden flow of blood and water. 35 The man who saw it has given testimony, and his testimony is true. He knows that he tells the truth, and he testifies so that you also may believe. 36 These things happened so that the scripture would be fulfilled: Not one of his bones will be broken.
16. Messiah was to die as a sacrifice for sin
Old Testament Prophecies5 But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed. 6 We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all.
Isaiah 53:5, 6, 8, 10, 11, 12
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.
10 Yet it was the LORD's will to crush him and cause him to suffer, and though the LORD makes his life a guilt offering, he will see his offspring and prolong his days, and the will of the LORD will prosper in his hand. 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. 12 Therefore I will give him a portion among the great, and he will divide the spoils with the strong, because he poured out his life unto death, and was numbered with the transgressors. For he bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.
New Testament Fulfilment29 The next day John saw Jesus coming towards him and said, Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!
John 1:29; 11:49-52
49 Then one of them, named Caiaphas, who was high priest that year, spoke up, You know nothing at all! 50 You do not realise that it is better for you that one man die for the people than that the whole nation perish. 51 He did not say this on his own, but as high priest that year he prophesied that Jesus would die for the Jewish nation, 52 and not only for that nation but also for the scattered children of God, to bring them together and make them one.
Acts 10:43; 13:38, 3943 All the prophets testify about him that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name.
38 Therefore, my brothers, I want you to know that through Jesus the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you. 39 Through him everyone who believes is justified from everything you could not be justified from by the law of Moses.
