The prophecy of the Lord Jesus for our consideration and edification, written centuries prior to His earthly existence is
|The Servant shockingly abused|
|Old Testament Prophecy|
|As many were astonished at you—|
his appearance was so marred, beyond human semblance,
and his form beyond that of the children of mankind—
|New Testament Fullfillment|
|And taking the twelve, he said to them, “See, we are going up to Jerusalem, and everything that is written about the Son of Man by the prophets will be accomplished.|
For he will be delivered over to the Gentiles and will be mocked and shamefully treated and spit upon.
And after flogging him, they will kill him, and on the third day he will rise.”
But they understood none of these things. This saying was hidden from them, and they did not grasp what was said.
|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?”
