Old Testament Prophecies About Jesus Fulfilled
Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year; ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats.
Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your King is coming to you; He is just and having salvation, lowly and riding on a donkey, a colt, the foal of a donkey.
I Corinthian 5:7
Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us.
I Peter 1:19
But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without a spot.
Revelation 5:12, 13
Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.
And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb forever.
And I saw no temple there in: for the Lord Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.
And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of the thunder, one of the four beasts saying Come and see.
The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, Which taketh away the sin of the world.
Matthew 27:27- 55
The Soldiers Mock Jesus
Then the governor's soldiers took Jesus into the Practorium(he governors official residence) and gathered the whole company of soldiers around him. They stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him, and then twisted together a crown of thorns and set it on his head. They put a staff in his right hand and knelt in front of him and mocked him.
"Hail, king of the Jews!"they said. They spit on him, and took the staff and struck him on the head again and again. After they had mocked him, they took off the robe and put his own clothes on him. Then they led him away to crucify him.
32; As they were going out, they met a man from Cyrene, named Simon, and they forced him to carry the cross. They came to a place called Golgotha (which means The Place of the Skull.) There they offered Jesus wine to drink, mixed with gall, but after tasting it, he refused to drink it. When they had drucified him, they divided up his clothes by casting lots. And sitting down, they kept watch, over him there. Above his head they placed the written charge against him: THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS.
38 Two robbers were cruicified with him, one on his right and one on his left. Those who passed by hurled insults at him, shaking their heads and saying, "You who are going to destroy the temple and build it in three days, save yourself! Come down from the cross, if you are the Son of God.
41 In the same way the chief priests, the teachers of the law and the elders mocked him. "He saved others," they said, "But he can't save himself. He's the King of Israel! Let him come down now from the cross, and we will believe in him. He trussts in God, Let God rescue him now if he wants him, for he said. "I am the son of God." In the same way the robbers who were crucified with him also heaped insults on him.
The Death of Jesus
45 From the sixth hour until the ninth hour darkness came over all the land. About the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice, "Eloi, Eloi, Lama sabachthani? which means, "My God, my God why have you forsaken me?"
47 When some of those standing there heard this, they said "he's calling Elijah."
Immediantely one of them ran and got a sponge. He filled it with wine vinegar, put it on a stick and offered it to Jesus to drink. The rest said, "Now leave him alone. Let's see if Elijah comes to save him."
50 And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit.
At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks split. The tombs broke open and the bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. They came out of the tombs, and after Jesus' resurrection they went into the holy city and appeared to many people.
54 When the centurion and those with him who were guarding Jesus saw the earthquake and all that had happened, they were terrified, and exclaimed, "Surely he was the Son of God."
