Day 61 of 100 prophecies fulfilled by Jesus – Have hands and feet pierced

Hands and feet pierced

                                   The cross of Jesus Christ


Ps. 22:16 – For dogs have surrounded me; A band of evildoers has encompassed me; They pierced my hands and my feet.


Zech. 12:10 – “I will pour out on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and of supplication, so that they will look on Me whom they have pierced; and they will mourn for Him, as one mourns for an only son, and they will weep bitterly over Him like the bitter weeping over a firstborn.

Mat. 27:35 –  And when they had crucified Him, they divided up His garments among themselves by casting lots.

John 19:18, 34-37 – There they crucified Him, and with Him two other men, one on either side, and Jesus in between. 34 – But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately blood and water came out. 35 And he who has seen has testified, and his testimony is true; and he knows that he is telling the truth, so that you also may believe. 36 For these things came to pass to fulfill the Scripture, “Not a bone of Him shall be broken.” 37 And again another Scripture says, “They shall look on Him whom they pierced.”


John 20:25-29 – So the other disciples were saying to him, “We have seen the Lord!” But he said to them, “Unless I see in His hands the imprint of the nails, and put my finger into the place of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe.” 26 After eight days His disciples were again inside, and Thomas with them. Jesus *came, the doors having been shut, and stood in their midst and said, “Peace be with you.” 27 Then He *said to Thomas, “Reach here with your finger, and see My hands; and reach here your hand and put it into My side; and do not be unbelieving, but believing.” 28 Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!” 29 Jesus *said to him, “Because you have seen Me, have you believed? Blessed are they who did not see, and yet believed.”

  1. This is an amazing series. Unless one slogs through the Old Testament, they will never fully appreciate the New Testament. I know the reading is harder, there references and wordage more obscure…but the Old Testament is the seed that grows to fullness in the New. Sometimes there are parallels between the two, sometimes mirror images, but isn’t the Good News so much richer when we know how long God has planned for us? How can any person read the Bible and not believe?

    1. That’s totally right, Jill. God is a much better planner than any of us could ever be. With His help we can make plans, but His plans are much bigger. He has the last word, and it is “Yes”, at least to God’s promises. They are all “yes” in Christ.
