JESUS' CRUCIFIXION IN PROPHECY
Anyone who has ever read the Gospel, understands that the whole subject, is the crucifixion, death, and resurrection of the sinless Messiah, the spotless Lamb of God, to save all who have faith in His shed blood from dying in our sins.
Indeed even the name of the Messiah "Yeshua" means "Yahweh saves" "rescues" or "delivers". After all what do we need rescue or delivery from more, than that which can separate us from God forever, which is our own sin?
When we consider Old Testament prophecies of the Messiah and His crucifixion, and even the foreshadowing or "type" of the event in the heart rending story of Abraham's near sacrifice of his son Isaac, it isn't a stretch to suggest that the main subject of the entirety of the scriptures from beginning to end, is the crucifixion, death and resurrection of the Messiah.
Early in the revealing of Yahweh to mankind, we read in the old covenant book of Leviticus,
Leviticus 17:11 For the life of the flesh [is] in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it [is] the blood [that] maketh an atonement for the soul.
The same is true under this new covenant, through the shed blood of the the Messiah, the Lamb of God.
John 1:29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.
Let's investigate one of Jesus' own prophecies, of His crucifixion.
Luke 24:44 And he said unto them, These [are] the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and [in] the prophets, and [in] the psalms, concerning me. 45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures, 46 And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: 47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. 48 And ye are witnesses of these things.
What was "written in the psalms" of the Old Testament, from so many hundreds of years before, that Jesus referred to?
Psalms 22:16 For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet. 17 I may tell all my bones: they look [and] stare upon me. 18 They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.
That Old Testament prophecy was written before crucifixion was ever even invented, and is fulfilled by the crucifixion of the Messiah, as confirmed by the New Testament witnesses.
Matthew 27:35 And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.
Mark 15:24 And when they had crucified him, they parted his garments, casting lots upon them, what every man should take.
John 19:23 Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments, and made four parts, to every soldier a part; and also [his] coat: now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout.
In His prophecy Jesus also referred to what was "written in the prophets". One example is this Old Testament prophecy of Zechariah regarding "that day", of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, that was written over 500 years before Jesus' crucifixion...
Zechariah 12:9 And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. 10 And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for [his] only [son], and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for [his] firstborn.
The Second Coming is not yet fulfilled, nor God's destruction of those "nations that come against Jerusalem", but the person whom was "pierced" is Jesus Christ, as confirmed through His New Testament witness and prophet, John...
John 19:37 And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him whom they pierced.
The WHOLE SUBJECT of the Gospel is the sacrifice of the Lamb of God...
Romans 3:25 Whom God hath set forth [to be] a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;
Here's more prophecy by Jesus, of His own crucifixion.
Matthew 16:21 From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.
Matthew 20:17 And Jesus going up to Jerusalem took the twelve disciples apart in the way, and said unto them, 18 Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be betrayed unto the chief priests and unto the scribes, and they shall condemn him to death, 19 And shall deliver him to the Gentiles to mock, and to scourge, and to crucify [him]: and the third day he shall rise again.
Matthew 12:40 For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
In a conversation with the Pharisees.... John 2:19 Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. 20 Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days? 21 But he spake of the temple of his body. 22 When therefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this unto them; and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.
My friend, do you believe "the word which Jesus had said"?
Mark 14:58 We heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands.
Jesus' followers - His sheep - ARE His temple. We ARE the body of Christ.
1 Corinthians 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and [that] the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which [temple] ye are.
1Corinthians 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost [which is] in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
The indwelling of the Holy Spirit comforting and guiding His flock.
John 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
Anyone who rejects the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, rejects the Gospel, and thus rejects Jesus Christ Himself.
Matthew 26:28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
Here's an Old Testament prophecy by Isaiah, from about 700 years before Jesus' crucifixion.
Isaiah 53:5 But he [was] wounded for our transgressions, [he was] bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace [was] upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. 6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. 7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. 8 He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken. 9 And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither [was any] deceit in his mouth. 10 Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put [him] to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see [his] seed, he shall prolong [his] days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand. 11 He shall see of the travail of his soul, [and] shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.
Fulfilled and confirmed in the New Testament
1Peter 2:22 Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth: 23 Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed [himself] to him that judgeth righteously: 24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. 25 For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.
Everyone who rejects the sacrifice of Jesus Christ - the price He took upon Himself to pay to save us from sin - rejects Jesus Christ.
John 10:17 Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. 18 No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.
Yet in the 7th century, many hundreds of years after Jesus' crucifixion was attested by all of His witnesses, a man named Muhammad came along in the SW Arabian desert about 1200 kilometers away from THE Holy Land, and filled his followers with complete resolve as to what to DISbelieve. Compelled his followers to DENY the crucifixion, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ - the whole purpose of the Messiah - the whole subject of the Gospel - while leaving a complete vacuum as to just who was killed on the cross. Thus compelling his followers to deny the very blood that would save them.
Surah 4:157 That they said (in boast), "We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah";- but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not:-
Muhammad certainly wasn't the first to make such a claim. The first Gnostic heretic was named "Simon Magnus" aka "Simon the Sorcerer" or "Simon the Magician", from Sumaria who referred to himself as the "great power of God". As the first heretic of the Christian era, he was later referred to as the "Father of Heresies". His Gnostic doctrine eventually bore his name "Simonianism". Not surprisingly in one of his heresies he declared that it only appeared that Jesus was crucified. Later on, Simon's heresy was adopted and further developed by Gnostic cults, such as the Ebionites.
During the time in which Muhammad hit a dry spell of "revelation", and became so depressed he was even suicidal, his wife Khadijah sent him to her cousin Waraqa bin Naufal to help convince him that he was called to be a prophet of "Allah". Waraqa was an Ebionite occult priest. Thus it was through Waraqa that Muhammad received much of his "revelation" for the Quran and - connecting the dots - that "inspiration" obviously included Simon the Sorcerer's deadly Gnostic doctrine, through the Ebionites, that it only appeared that Christ was crucified.
It isn't like we weren't warned about Simon the Magician and Muhammad.
2Peter 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
Every informed person who is mentally competent enough to understand, and yet rejects the blood of the Lord that bought them, will suffer the consequences.

This is the part 2 conclusion of the video on "Jesus' Crucifixion in Prophecy". If you haven't already, please begin with part 1, by clicking on the annotation that will appear above.
In regard to the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, some Muslims hypocritically try to argue that God wouldn't allow His prophet to be harmed, but this even runs contrary to their own Quran.
Sura 2.61 That was because they used to disbelieve the Ayat (proofs, evidence, verses, lessons, signs, revelations etc.) of Allah and killed the prophets wrongfully.
Just as the Old Testament prophets, and the first century prophets and Apostles of Jesus Christ, were tortured and slaughtered, so have Jesus' true followers been for the last nearly 2,000 years, whether by secular authorities, the middle ages Roman "Church", or by Muhammad's followers for the last 1400 years and unto today. Please visit the website of the "Voice of the Martyrs" for much more on Christian martyrdom.
Nearly 500 Christians are martyred every day, around the world today, primarily by the hand of Muhammad's true followers.
Sura 9.111 Allah hath purchased of the believers their persons and their goods; for theirs (in return) is the garden (of Paradise): they fight in His cause, and slay and are slain: a promise binding on Him in truth, through the Law, the Gospel, and the Qur'an: and who is more faithful to his covenant than Allah? then rejoice in the bargain which ye have concluded: that is the achievement supreme.
While fighting is binding on Muhammad's followers, that Sura is a lie regarding the Gospel binding the same, on the followers of Jesus Christ who are to...
Matthew 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
Surah 9.29 Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.
The dhimmitude through imperialistic conquest and subjugation of the vanquished, expressed in that Sura, is the EXACT OPPOSITE of the Gospel which is summarized...
Galatians 5:14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, [even] in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
The Gospel is restricted in 51 - mostly Muhammadan - countries, as well as a few communist ones. This is because neither Muhammadanism nor communism has ever been able stand the light of the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
While the Quran mentions that prophets were killed wrongfully, Muhammad's followers are also prohibited from making distinctions between the prophets, so crucifixion is just the kind of death that they should expect Jesus to have suffered.
Sura 4.152 And those who believe in Allah and His Messengers and make no distinction between any of them (Messengers), We shall give them their rewards; and Allah is Ever Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
Can you imagine? Some Muslims even consider Alexander the Great to be a prophet - a self-proclaimed demi-god and one of the most widely acknowledged pagan idol worshipers in recorded history - yet Muhammad doesn't allow his followers to make a distinction between the sinless Savior of the world, the Messiah, the Lamb of God, and one of the most unregenerate men in the history of mankind.
Muslims aren't allowed to distinguish between Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace, and their false prophet Muhammad whose own books reveal as a murdering, female prisoner abusing, thief.
Bukhari:V5B59N448 They then surrendered to the Prophet's judgment but he directed them to Sa'd to give the verdict. Sad said, "I give my judgment that their men should be killed, their women and children should be taken as captives, and their properties distributed."
Tabari VIII:35/Ishaq:464 The Jews were made to come down, and Allah's Messenger imprisoned them. Then the Prophet went out into the marketplace of Medina (it is still its marketplace today), and he had trenches dug in it. He sent for the Jewish men and had them beheaded in those trenches. They were brought out to him in batches. They numbered 800 to 900 boys and men.
Bukhari:V5B59N459 I entered the Mosque, saw Abu, sat beside him and asked about sex. Abu Said said, "We went out with Allah's Apostle and we received female slaves from among the captives. We desired women and we loved to do coitus interruptus."
Not unlike his adopting Waraqa's gnosticism, Muhammad became so deeply involved in the rituals of the 2nd century occult cult of the Sabians, of which four of his relatives had established a sect in Mecca, that locals often referred to Muhammad simply as "The Sabian". Indeed he mentions this occult cult, right alongside Christians and Jews in the Quran. So it should come as no surprise that the Sabians,
1. prayed five times a day
2. performed ablution
3. prostrated while praying
4. fasted for 30 days during the same month as Ramadan
5. wore long white robes
So is Muhammad's unwitnessed tale of having ridden on a flying donkey-mule one night to "paradise", where Moses escorted him through 7 heavens to an audience with "Allah", where he learned about praying five times a day? Or is it perhaps more likely that he simply lifted rituals from his Sabian relatives, like he did the gnosticism of his wife Khadijah's cousin Waraqa, in the same way that he adopted, and then adapted, the rituals of the Hajj from his moon, sun, and star worshiping tribe the Quraish, and the Umrah from their jinn-devil worship?
My friend, do you reject the Lamb of God and the sacrifice He made to save you from your sins, to follow the stand-alone 7th century invention of Muhammad, through thinly repackaged occult Sabian, pagan Arabian Star Family, and jinn-devil worship, rituals?
Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
But Muhammad didn't even bother with the sheep's clothing but was revealed through his own behavior as a ravening wolf.
1Corinthians 1:23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;
John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
1Corinthians 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know [them], because they are spiritually discerned.
One must choose between the 1600 year record of Yahweh to mankind as revealed through ALL of His prophets and witnesses, that His people have followed through two covenants for 3500 years, or the stand-alone 23 year 7th century record - the EXACT OPPOSITE of the WHOLE SUBJECT of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, of the conspicuously false prophet Muhammad.
Please see the video "Blindness God gave some Jews" regarding that group and the Gospel.
Please see "The Beast of Revelation 13" video, to explore how it might be concluded that Muhammad's Islamic Kingdom may well be the "beast" referred to in the following verse, when we employ sound hermeneutic principles in study.
Revelation 20:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet [are], and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
How can that be a reference to other than the false prophet Muhammad, when one quarter of mankind is compelled to DENY the whole subject of the Gospel of Jesus Christ? To deny the very blood that would save them as a fundamental of their faith in Muhammad.
Forever is a very long time. You could die this very day. Why not ask Jesus to come into your heart, and into your life, today?
Matthew 7:7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: 8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
