> 034:020 He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken. > > 022:013 They gaped upon me with their mouths, as a ravening and a > roaring lion. > 022:014 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. > 022:015 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. > 022:016 For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have > inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet. > 022:017 I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me. > 022:018 They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my > vesture. If you check a Hebrew Old Testament you will see that these quotes are taken out of context and even mistranslated to make it look that they predict a crucifiction. e.g the bit that says "they pierced my hands and feet" is a blatant mistranslation the original Hebrew say "like a Lion they are at my feet". This sort of thing is typical of Christian dishonesty. Most of the quotes are not even about a Messiah. All this arguing is pointless, since Jesus is a mythical character. The name "Jesus the Nazarene" is based on a person who live c. 100 BC and Matthew and Thaddaeus are based on his disciples. This guy was confused with a guy named Ben-Stada who lived during the Roman period. The crucifixion myth is rather late, being partly based the three historical false Messiahs crucified by the Romans. The Jesus myth also has many borrowings from the pagan myths of Osiris, Attis, Dionysus etc.
