The prophecy of the Lord Jesus for our consideration and edification, written centuries prior to His earthly existence is
|Not a bone of the Lamb to be broken|
|Old Testament Prophecy|
|It shall be eaten in one house; you shall not take any of the flesh outside the house, and you shall not break any of its bones.|
|New Testament Fullfillment|
|Since it was the day of Preparation, and so that the bodies would not remain on the cross on the Sabbath (for that Sabbath was a high day), the Jews asked Pilate that their legs might be broken and that they might be taken away.|
So the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first, and of the other who had been crucified with him.
But when they came to Jesus and saw that he was already dead, they did not break his legs.
But one of the soldiers pierced his side with a spear, and at once there came out blood and water.
He who saw it has borne witness–his testimony is true, and he knows that he is telling the truth–that you also may believe.
For these things took place that the Scripture might be fulfilled: “Not one of his bones will be broken.”
