Scripture Fulfilled

He is coming ~

Pliate wrote an inscription and put it on the cross. It was written, "JESUS THE NAZARENE, THE KING OF THE JEWS". . . the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city; and it was written in Hebrew, Latin, and Greek. . .

Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took His outer garments and made four parts, a part to every soldier. . . "let us not tear [the tunic], but cast lots for it" . . . this was to fulfill Scripture. . .

Jesus knowing that all things had already been accomplished to fulfill the Scripture, . . . said, "It is finished!" and gave up His spirit. . . So the soldiers came. . . one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear and immediately blood and water came out.

After these things Joseph of Arimathea, being a disciple of Jesus, but a secret one for fear of the Jews, asked Pilate that he might take the body of Jesus . . . Nicodemus, who had first come to Him by night, also came, bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, . . . So they took the body of Jesus and bound it in linen wrappings, with the spices, [and they laid Him in the new tomb].
John 19:20-41
