Hi

        Malicious witnesses rise up; they ask me of things that I do not know.
Psalm 35:11 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/psa.35.11.ESV     


Of course they could not find anything against Christ he had done nothing wrong they tried to use a misinterpretation of their scriptures although he was the one who had given them the scriptures he is the word of God.
The above scripture is confirmed in the NT

    For many bore false witness against him, but their testimony did not agree. And some stood up and bore false witness against him, saying,
Mark 14:56-‬57 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/mrk.14.56-57.ESV       


What love our master had for us to go through all this humiliation for our sakes and even more awaited him even death on the cross.

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi
Moving on

      He was oppressed, and he was afflicted,  yet he opened not his mouth;  like a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and like a sheep that before its shearers is silent, so he opened not his mouth.
Isaiah 53:7 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/isa.53.7.ESV     


Here Christ is before Pilot on trumped up charges he was completely  innocent of all charges but he did not give any defence he was silent he had to face what was coming the cross he had to die to pay the price our sins deserve.
What fantastic wonderful love he shows us he opened not his mouth the innocent for us sinners.
Pilot could not understand it.

       And Pilate again asked him, ?Have you no answer to make? See how many charges they bring against you.? But Jesus made no further answer, so that Pilate was amazed.
Mark 15:4-‬5 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/mrk.15.4-5.ESV   


You would do well to read the whole of Isaiah 53 its a wonderful prophecy of what would happen to our Lord.

Love and Peace

Hi

       I gave my back to those who strike, and my cheeks to those who pull out the beard; I hid not my face from disgrace and spitting.
Isaiah 50:6 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/isa.50.6.ESV         


Here we have a prophecy of the humiliation our Lord would have to put up with for our sakes and he did not resist in any way not even to say a word in his defence all prophecy must be fulfilled to the letter as confirmed by the NT.

     Then they spit in his face and struck him. And some slapped him, saying, ?Prophesy to us, you Christ! Who is it that struck you??
Matthew 26:67-‬68 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/mat.26.67-68.ESV       


How much more proof do we need that Jesus is the son of God

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi
Moving on

      19  Let not them that are mine enemies wrongfully rejoice over me: neither let them wink with the eye that hate me without a cause

    4  They that hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of mine head: they that would destroy me, being mine enemies wrongfully, are mighty: then I restored that which I took not away   


This is speaking of the Jews especially the ruling classes who refused to acknowledge who he was the Son of God.
The Jews had no cause to hate him all he ever did for the was good there only accusation was he claimed to be the son of God which of course was true they just would not believe it.
They were expecting a mighty king and of course Christ will return as King of Kings but first he must come as the suffering servant..
All these things are confirmed in the NT

         If I had not done among them the works that no one else did, they would not be guilty of sin, but now they have seen and hated both me and my Father.  But the word that is written in their Law must be fulfilled: ?They hated me without a cause.?
John 15:24-‬25 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.15.24-25.ESV     


Whoever hates the Son hates the Father whoever Loves the son Loves the Father.

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi
Moving on

       Therefore I will divide him a portion with the many,  and he shall divide the spoil with the strong, because he poured out his soul to death and was numbered with the transgressors;  yet he bore the sin of many, and makes intercession for the transgressors.
Isaiah 53:12 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/isa.53.12.ESV       


Here we have a prophecy of the crucifixion the death of our Lord Jesus Christ for the sins of the world the most wonderful  gift of Love the world has ever seen he was crucified as a law breaker but had committed no sin and was crucified as a common criminal with two other criminals as can be witnessed in the NT.

     Then two robbers were crucified with him, one on the right and one on the left.
Matthew 27:38 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/mat.27.38.ESV

     27  And with him they crucify two thieves; the one on his right hand, and the other on his left.

 28  And the scripture was fulfilled, which saith, And he was numbered with the transgressors   


I think it's wonderful how all the prophecies about our Lord are fulfilled to the letter fantastic.

Love and Peace

Hi
Next prophecy

    They gave me poison for food, and for my thirst they gave me sour wine to drink.
Psalm 69:21 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/psa.69.21.ESV         


Of course this is referring to our Lord on the cross when he was dieing to pay the price our sins deserve.
And like all the prophecies in the OT it has its fulfillment in the NT

    they offered him wine to drink, mixed with gall, but when he tasted it, he would not drink it.
Matthew 27:34 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/mat.27.34.ESV

    After this, Jesus, knowing that all was now finished, said ( to fulfill the Scripture), ?I thirst.?  A jar full of sour wine stood there, so they put a sponge full of the sour wine on a hyssop branch and held it to his mouth. When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, ?It is finished,? and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.
John 19:28-‬30 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.19.28-30.ESV       


Let us standstill for a moment and look on this scene the son of God dieing on the cross for us sinners what fantastic Love we need to return here often and contemplate this great act of Love.

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi
Next

    For dogs encompass me; a company of evildoers encircles me; they have pierced my hands and feet ?
Psalm 22:16 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/psa.22.16.ESV

   ?And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and pleas for mercy, so that, when they look on me, on him whom they have pierced, they shall mourn for him, as one mourns for an only child, and weep bitterly over him, as one weeps over a firstborn.
Zechariah 12:10 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/zec.12.10.ESV         


Of course all these prophecies came to fulfillment at the crucifixion of our Lord the scars of the crucifixion are undeniable proof that our Lord had died on the cross and had risen on the third day the injuries he incured could not possibly heal in such a short time dut they are proof of the crucifixion.

Again we have proof in the new testament that all these things are true.

        Now Thomas, one of the twelve, called the Twin, was not with them when Jesus came. So the other disciples told him, ?We have seen the Lord.? But he said to them, ?Unless I see in his hands the mark of the nails, and place my finger into the mark of the nails, and place my hand into his side, I will never believe.?  Eight days later, his disciples were inside again, and Thomas was with them. Although the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, ?Peace be with you.?  Then he said to Thomas, ?Put your finger here, and see my hands; and put out your hand, and place it in my side. Do not disbelieve, but believe.?
John 20:24-‬27 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.20.24-27.ESV     


Here we have the testimony of St Thomas that he has seen the scars and touched them and the words of our Lord    Do not disbelieve, but believe            not only applies to Thomas but to us as well so let us believe on this wonderful gift fo love.

Love and Peace

Hi
Moving on

   All who see me mock me; they make mouths at me; they wag their heads;   ?He trusts in the Lord ; let him deliver him; let him rescue him, for he delights in him!?
Psalm 22:7-‬8 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/psa.22.7-8.ESV         


All this humiliation for the sake of sinners hanging there on the cross bleeding from his hand and feet listening to all this ridicule must have caused even more pain.
Again we have conformation of this prophesy in the NT

       And the people stood by, watching, but the rulers scoffed at him, saying, ?He saved others; let him save himself, if he is the Christ of God, his Chosen One!?
Luke 23:35 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/luk.23.35.ESV
