The prophecy of the Lord Jesus for our consideration and edification, written centuries prior to His earthly existence is
|Oppressed and afflicted|
|Old Testament Prophecy|
|He was oppressed, and he was afflicted|
|New Testament Fulfillment|
|Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the governor’s headquarters, and they gathered the whole battalion before him.|
And they stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him,
and twisting together a crown of thorns, they put it on his head and put a reed in his right hand. And kneeling before him, they mocked him, saying, “Hail, King of the Jews!”
And they spit on him and took the reed and struck him on the head.
And when they had mocked him, they stripped him of the robe and put his own clothes on him and led him away to crucify him.
