"Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the first, and of the other which was
crucified with Him. But when they came to Jesus . . . . . they break not His legs . . . . . for
these things were done that the Scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of Him shall not be
broken" (John 19: 32-36).
"I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax;
it is melted in the midst of my bowels. My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and
my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and Thou hast brought me into the dust of death"
(Psa. 22: 14-18).
"When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, He said, It is finished and He bowed
His head, and gave up the ghost (gave up His life)" (John 19: 30).
"I have set the Lord always before me: because He is at my right hand, I shall not be
moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth; my flesh also shall rest in
hope. For Thou wilt not leave my soul in hell (grave); neither wilt Thou suffer Thine
Holy One to see corruption" (Psa. 16: 8-10).
". . . . . Ye have taken and by wicked hands have crucified and slain: Whom God hath
raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that He should be
holden of it. For David speaketh concerning Him, I foresaw the Lord always before my
face, for He is on my right hand, that I should not be moved: therefore did my heart
rejoice . . . . . and my flesh shall rest in hope: because Thou wilt not leave my soul in hell
(grave), neither wilt Thou suffer Thine Holy One to see corruption" (Acts 2: 23-27,
compare also Psa. 2: 7 with Acts 13: 33-36).
"Thou hast ascended on high, Thou hast led captivity captive: Thou hast received
gifts for men" (Psa. 68: 18).
"Wherefore He saith when He ascended up on high, He led captivity captive and gave
gifts unto men" (Eph. 4: 8).
His Second Coming to the earth.
"Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein: then shall all the trees of the wood
rejoice before the Lord: for He cometh, for He cometh to judge the earth: He shall judge
the world with righteousness, and the people with His truth" (Psa. 96: 12, 13; 98: 8,
9 and compare the 4 Psalms 96:-99:).
"And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from
heaven . . . . . in flaming fire, taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey
not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ . . . . . When He shall come to be glorified in His
saints, and to be admired in all them that believe . . ." (II Thess. 1: 7-9; Matt. 24: 29-31
and many other N.T. Scriptures).
