If we were to go back to John 4:34 where Jesus said, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent me and to finish His work.”  This answer to that which is here when Jesus said,” It is finished!” I used to sing a song, “It is Finished”. Yes indeed finished every jot.  Sinner this is all you need, tell me is it not.
Now the next thing is that they had to break the legs of the crucified ones so they would die quicker but when they came to Jesus they thought He was already dead. They had to have evidence so a soldier put a spear into a special place in His side and out came a mixture of blood and water.  Never mind about preachers that say a soldier randomly threw a spear.  The soldier who did that knew what he needed to find.  John said he saw it and he bore a record that it was true.
After the soldier’s spear John cites two prophesies.  The Old Testament scripture, Psalm 34:20 said that a bone of Him shall not be broken.  This makes the Passover lamb a type of Christ over Passover.  I Corinthians 5:7 says that. The next one is Zechariah 12:10 where it says they shall look upon Me. Who? They shall look upon Me who they pierced.  This is the nation Israel when Jesus comes back to this world.  It is called the Second Advent. (Coming) Revelation 19:11-16
I want to briefly say something about the men Joseph and Nicodemus.  Remember John 3: 14-15.  As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness so the Son of Man would be lifted up.  Nicodemus must have said, “This is what He told me.” It was his salvation. Is it yours?
