Crucifixion Prophesied 1000 Years Before

I will give you something to ask an infidel who says he doesn't believe the Bible.  You say, I want to ask you this question.  And he will tell you, if he is an intelligent man, that crucifixion was not known until the days of Rome's power.  "Then tell me how a thousand years before he was crucified was the identical, literal, minute crucifixion described in the 22nd Psalm?"  That is a thousand years before Jesus was born.  And you will find there some thirty specific prophecies fulfilled of His crucifixion, describing it in detail a thousand years before. 

It is easy to understand when we know that there is a God who knows the end from the beginning.

Remember this.  There were two indictments against Jesus.  One was blasphemy; the other was sedition.  The Jewish court, the Sandedrin did not have the power of life and death.  Only Rome had that power, everywhere that Rome ruled.  So, therefore, they arrested Jesus and brought Him before the Sanhedrin at night; and the charge against him as blasphemy, namely, that He said that he was the Son of God.  The Jews, their Sandedrin, could not put Him to death.  There, they had to bring Him before the governor.  There was no law in Rome against blasphemy.  They didn't care what you believed.  But there was a law, and the strongest law, against sedition.

Therefore, they changed the indictment from blasphemy to sedition.  They came before Pilate; they didn't say anything about this man saying He was the Son of God, but he says he is a king, and we have no king but Caesar.  They hated Caesar.  All at once they become very loyal to Caesar.  They hated Jesus a thousand times more than they hated Caesar.  Therefore, suddenly they became loyal to Caesar.
