Prophets Describe the Saviorpage 2
David described the method of execution as “piercing the Savior’s hands and feet, yet not breaking any of His bones.”
That the Savior would say, “My God, my God, why have You forsaken Me?”, and that onlookers would laugh and ridicule the Savior, saying, “He believed that the Lord would deliver him.”
David also wrote that “the Savior’s bones would be out of joint and in His thirst He would be given vinegar to drink,” and that the Savior’s persecutors would “divide His clothes among them, and gamble for His robe.”
Isaiah said that onlookers would be “astonished” when they saw how the Savior’s face was disfigured from the torture.
And all this was written in the Scriptures many hundreds of years before the Savior came.
