- Jesus would be betrayed by a friend (Psalm 41:9; Isaiah 53:2-3; Psalm 55:12-13; Matthew 26:47-50)
- Jesus would be mocked, crucified, and buried (Psalm 22:7; Isaiah 53:2-3; Matthew 27:27-31, 41; Amos 8:9; Matthew 27:45; Psalm 22:16,18; Matthew 27:35; Psalm 34:20; John 19:32-34; Psalm 69:21; Matthew 27:34; Isaiah 53:9; Matthew 27:57-60)
- Jesus would rise from the dead (Psalm 16:10; Isaiah 53:10-12; Isaiah 26:19; Ezekiel 37:12-14; Daniel 12:2; Job 19:25-27; Matthew 28:1-6; Matthew 28:16-20)
All Scripture from NLT
9Even my best friend, the one I trusted completely, the one who shared my food, has turned against me.
12It is not an enemy who taunts me—I could bear that. It is not my foes who so arrogantly insult me—I could have hidden from them. 13Instead, it is you—my equal, my companion and close friend.
47And even as Jesus said this, Judas, one of the twelve disciples, arrived with a crowd of men armed with swords and clubs. They had been sent by the leading priests and elders of the people. 48The traitor, Judas, had given them a prearranged signal: "You will know which one to arrest when I greet him with a kiss."49 So Judas came straight to Jesus. "Greetings, Rabbi!" he exclaimed and gave him the kiss. 50Jesus said, "My friend, go ahead and do what you have come for."
7Everyone who sees me mocks me. They sneer and shake their heads.
2My servant grew up in the LORD's presence like a tender green shoot, like a root in dry ground. There was nothing beautiful or majestic about his appearance, nothing to attract us to him. 3He was despised and rejected—a man of sorrows, acquainted with deepest grief. We turned our backs on him and looked the other way. He was despised, and we did not care.
Matthew 27:27-31, 41
27Some of the governor's soldiers took Jesus into their headquarters and called out the entire regiment. 28They stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him. 29They wove thorn branches into a crown and put it on his head, and they placed a reed stick in his right hand as a scepter. Then they knelt before him in mockery and taunted, "Hail! King of the Jews!"30And they spit on him and grabbed the stick and struck him on the head with it. 31When they were finally tired of mocking him, they took off the robe and put his own clothes on him again. Then they led him away to be crucified.41The leading priests, the teachers of religious law, and the elders also mocked Jesus.
9"In that day," says the Sovereign LORD, "I will make the sun go down at noon and darken the earth while it is still day.
45At noon, darkness fell across the whole land until three o'clock.
16My enemies surround me like a pack of dogs; an evil gang closes in on me. They have pierced my hands and feet.18They divide my garments among themselves and throw dice for my clothing.
35After they had nailed him to the cross, the soldiers gambled for his clothes by throwing dice.
20For the LORD protects the bones of the righteous; not one of them is broken!
32So the soldiers came and broke the legs of the two men crucified with Jesus. 33But when they came to Jesus, they saw that he was already dead, so they didn't break his legs. 34One of the soldiers, however, pierced his side with a spear, and immediately blood and water flowed out.
21But instead, they give me poison for food; they offer me sour wine for my thirst.
34The soldiers gave him wine mixed with bitter gall, but when he had tasted it, he refused to drink it.
9He had done no wrong and had never deceived anyone. But he was buried like a criminal; he was put in a rich man's grave.
57As evening approached, Joseph, a rich man from Arimathea who had become a follower of Jesus, 58went to Pilate and asked for Jesus' body. And Pilate issued an order to release it to him. 59Joseph took the body and wrapped it in a long sheet of clean linen cloth. 60He placed it in his own new tomb, which had been carved out of the rock. Then he rolled a great stone across the entrance and left.
10For you will not leave my soul among the dead or allow your holy one to rot in the grave.
10Yet when his life is made an offering for sin, he will have many descendants. He will enjoy a long life, and the LORD's good plan will prosper in his hands. 11When he sees all that is accomplished by his anguish, he will be satisfied. And because of his experience, my righteous servant will make it possible for many to be counted righteous, for he will bear all their sins. 12I will give him the honors of a victorious soldier, because he exposed himself to death. He was counted among the rebels. He bore the sins of many and interceded for rebels.
19But those who die in the LORD will live; their bodies will rise again! Those who sleep in the earth will rise up and sing for joy! For your life-giving light will fall like dew on your people in the place of the dead!
12Therefore, prophesy to them and say, 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says: O my people, I will open your graves of exile and cause you to rise again. Then I will bring you back to the land of Israel. 13When this happens, O my people, you will know that I am the LORD. 14I will put my Spirit in you, and you will live again and return home to your own land. Then you will know that I, the LORD, have spoken, and I have done what I said. Yes, the LORD has spoken!'"
2Many of those whose bodies lie dead and buried will rise up, some to everlasting life and some to shame and everlasting disgrace.
25"But as for me, I know that my Redeemer lives, and he will stand upon the earth at last. 26And after my body has decayed, yet in my body I will see God! 27I will see him for myself. Yes, I will see him with my own eyes. I am overwhelmed at the thought!
1Early on Sunday morning, as the new day was dawning, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went out to visit the tomb. 2Suddenly there was a great earthquake! For an angel of the Lord came down from heaven, rolled aside the stone, and sat on it. 3His face shone like lightning, and his clothing was as white as snow. 4The guards shook with fear when they saw him, and they fell into a dead faint. 5Then the angel spoke to the women. "Don't be afraid!" he said. "I know you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. 6He isn't here! He is risen from the dead, just as he said would happen. Come, see where his body was lying.
16Then the eleven disciples left for Galilee, going to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17When they saw him, they worshiped him—but some of them doubted! 18Jesus came and told his disciples, "I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. 19Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. 20Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age."
