21 Unheard of Bible Prophecies About Jesus now revealed!

Good Friday, commonly known as Easter Friday , commemorates Jesus death and resurrection. The good news is that Christ came to earth to die for our sins so that we could be made righteous. But do you know that the Easter celebration is derived from a pagan festival? You can read more about it in this post.

Sceptics will always attack the Bible with, "Is Jesus a real person?" or if he is real, "did he die and resurrect?"

Bible Prophecies

For now, let's focus on the Bible prophecies found in the Old Testament that were fulfilled when Christ was born, crucified, and resurrected. Did the Old Testament foretell Jesus mission, death, and resurrection? Let's go!

    #1 Jesus is a Descendant of King David

    Isaiah 11:1 - "A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a Branch will bear fruit."

    Deuteronomy 18: 5 - "The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your fellow Israelites. You must listen to him."

    Isaiah 9:7 - "Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David's throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the Lord Almighty will accomplish this."

    Jeremiah 23:5 - "The days are coming," declares the Lord, "when I will raise up for David, a righteous Branch, a King who will reign wisely and do what is just and right in the land."

    Micah 5:2 - "But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times."

    Prophecy Fulfilled

    Bethlehem of Judea is known as the Town of David because David was raised there. His father was there when David was anointed as the new king of Israel.

    1 Samuel 16:1 - "..Fill your horn with oil and be on your way; I am sending you to Jesse of Bethlehem. I have chosen one of his sons to be king."

    In the New Testament, because of the Roman census, Joseph had to go back to his home at Bethlehem, where he was raised. Joseph was also a descendant of King David and thus, Jesus was a "fellow Israelite", as in the prophecy.

    Luke 2:4 - "So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David.

    Matthew 1:1 - "The record of the genealogy of Jesus the Messiah, the son of David.."

    Matthew 2:1 - "After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod.."

    John 7:42 -"Has not the Scripture said that the Christ comes from the descendants of David, and from Bethlehem, the village where David was?"

    Matthew 12:23 - "All the crowds were amazed, and were saying, "This man cannot be the Son of David, can he?"

    In those days, the Jews already knew the origin and significance of the messiah and king, as the Son of David. Many believed that Jesus was the Messiah and the King to come to free them. They believed that he would be an earthly king. However, they were disappointed when Jesus was crucified.

    Matthew 21:9 - "The crowds going ahead of Him, and those who followed, were shouting,"Hosanna to the Son of David.."

    #2 John the Baptist made way for Jesus

    Malachi 3:1 - ""I will send my messenger, who will prepare the way before me. Then suddenly the Lord you are seeking will come to his temple; the messenger of the covenant, whom you desire, will come," says the Lord Almighty."

    Isaiah 40:3 - "A voice of one calling: "In the wilderness, prepare the way for the Lord; make straight in the desert a highway for our God."

    Prophecy Fulfilled

    John was the son of Elizabeth, the cousin of Mary. Mary visited Elizabeth when Elizabeth was six months pregnant with John. John is therefore three months older than Jesus.

    John was a prophet who led many to God through repentance of sin.

    Luke 3:3 - "And he came into all the district around the Jordan, preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins;"

    #3 Jesus rode on a donkey into Jerusalem

    Zachariah 9:9 - "Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your King is coming to you; He is just and having salvation, Lowly and riding on a donkey, a colt, the foal of a donkey."

    Prophecy Fulfilled

    Matthew 21:7-9 - "They brought the donkey and the colt and put on them their cloaks, and he sat on them. Most of the crowd spread their cloaks on the road, and others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. And the crowds that went before him and that followed him were shouting, Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!"

    Similar stories could be found in Mark 11:1-10, Luke 19:28-40, John 12:12-19.

    If you read the Zachariah 9:9, you would also notice that it recorded a donkey and a colt.

    #4 Jesus was betrayed by a close friend Judas

    Psalms 41:9 - "Even my own familiar friend in whom I trusted, Who ate my bread, Has lifted up his heel against me."

    Prophecy fulfilled

    Luke 22:21 - "But behold, the hand of the one betraying me is with mine on the table."

    Matthew 26:23 - "And He answered, "He who dipped his hand with me in the bowl is the one who will betray Me."

    John 13:21 - "When Jesus had said this, He became troubled in spirit, and testified and said, "Truly, truly, I say to you, that one of you will betray Me."

    Mark 14:18 - "As they were reclining at the table and eating, Jesus said, "Truly I say to you that one of you will betray Me-one who is eating with Me."

    The devil tempted Judas Iscariot to betray Jesus for thirty-three pieces of silver.

    John 13:2 - "During supper, the devil having already put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon, to betray Him.."

    Matthew 26:15 - "..and said, "What are you willing to give me to betray Him to you?" And they weighed out thirty pieces of silver to him."

    #5 Jews plotted to kill Jesus by accusing him with lies

    Psalm 109:2-3 - "For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful
    Have opened against me; They have spoken against me with a lying tongue.
    They have also surrounded me with words of hatred, And fought against me without a cause."

    Psalm 31:13 - "While they take counsel together against me, They scheme to take away my life."

    Psalm 41:7-8 - "All who hate me whisper together against me; Against me they devise my hurt. "An evil disease," they say, "clings to him. And now that he lies down, he will rise up no more."

    Prophecy Fulfilled

    Matthew 26:59 - "Now the chief priests and the whole Council kept trying to obtain false testimony against Jesus, so that they might put Him to death."

    Mark 15:3 - "And the chief priests accused him of many things"

    Mark 14:55-56 - "The chief priests and the whole Sanhedrin were looking for evidence against Jesus so that they could put him to death, but they did not find any. Many testified falsely against him, but their statements did not agree."

    Matthew 26:3-5 - " Then the chief priests and the elders of the people assembled in the palace of the high priest, whose name was Caiaphas, and they schemed to arrest Jesus secretly and kill him. "But not during the festival," they said, "or there may be a riot among the people."

    The Jewish religious leaders wanted to kill Jesus as quickly as they could, but they could not find evidence against him. Even their lies were incoherent, and they did not agree with each other. The only charge they had against him was his claim that he was the Son of God.

    Luke 22:70-71 - "Then they all said, 'Are You then the Son of God?' So He said to them, 'You rightly say that I am.' And they said, 'What further testimony do we need? For we have heard it ourselves from His own mouth.' "

    #6 Jesus was silent like a Passover lamb

    Isaiah 53:7 - "He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth;
    he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
    so he did not open his mouth."

    Prophecy Fulfilled

    Matthew 26:23 - "But Jesus kept silent. And the high priest said to Him, "I adjure You by the living God, that You tell us whether You are the Christ, the Son of God."

    Matthew 27:12 - "And while He was being accused by the chief priests and elders, He did not answer."

    Matthew 27:14 - "And He did not answer him with regard to even a single charge, so the governor was quite amazed."

    Mark 14:61 - "But He kept silent and did not answer..."

    Mark 15:5 - "But Jesus made no further answer; so Pilate was amazed."

    Luke 23:9 - "And he questioned Him at some length; but He answered him nothing."

    Some skeptics commented that Jesus was silent throughout the trial. But obviously, that was not true if you look at the other verses. However, Jesus needed to keep silent to the charges in order to fulfill the prophecies written about his death.

    Imagine if Christ had defended himself and denied the charges; the governor would have taken more time to investigate the charge, and his death would have been delayed until after the Passover. Jesus death was meant to be the ultimate sacrificial lamb for our sins. His death was to be on the 14th day of Nisan, and it was important and timely that Jesus died on the Passover.

    #7 Everyone left Jesus

    Psalms 31:11 - "Because of all my enemies, I am the utter contempt of my neighbors and an object of dread to my closest friends- those who see me on the street flee from me."

    Prophecy Fulfilled

    Matthew 26:56 - "..Then all the disciples deserted him and fled."

    Mark 14:50 -"Then everyone deserted him and fled."

    Everyone, including the disciples, believed that Jesus was the messiah who would come and save them from Roman oppression. They believed that Jesus was the son of David, the anointed one, and an earthly king to rule over them.

    But when Jesus was taken away, the disciples were afraid, and their hopes were dashed. They knew that the vision of Jesus as an earthly king was no more. So they left.

    Incidentally, let us look at what a prominent Pharisee, Gamaliel, a teacher of the law, wisely said in the book of Acts about false messiahs:

    Acts 5: 34-39

    "But a Pharisee named Gamaliel, a teacher of the law, who was honored by all the people, stood up in the Sanhedrin and ordered that the men be put outside for a little while. Then he addressed the Sanhedrin:

    "Men of Israel, consider carefully what you intend to do to these men. Some time ago Theudas appeared, claiming to be somebody, and about four hundred men rallied to him. He was killed, all his followers were dispersed, and it all came to nothing.

    After him, Judas the Galilean appeared in the days of the census and led a band of people in revolt. He too was killed, and all his followers were scattered.

    Therefore, in the present case I advise you: Leave these men alone! Let them go! For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will fail. But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will only find yourselves fighting against God."

    If Jesus did not resurrect, like the false messiahs before Christ, the disciples would have fled. But nonetheless, they came back even bolder than before. How could this not attest to the validity and historicity of Christ, his death, and resurrection?

    #8 Jesus was mocked and despised

    Isiah 52:14 - "As many were astonished at thee; his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men"

    Psalms 22:6-7 - "But I am a worm and not a man, scorned by everyone, despised by the people. All who see me mock me; they hurl insults, shaking their heads."

    Isaiah 53:3 - "He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem."

    Psalm 22:8 - "He trusted in the Lord, let Him rescue Him; Let Him deliver Him, since He delights in Him!"

    These were the exact words the Jewish leaders said when they mocked him on the cross.

    Isaiah 50:6  - "I offered my back to those who beat me, my cheeks to those who pulled out my beard; I did not hide my face from mocking and spitting."

    Prophecy Fulfilled

    Matthew 27:28-30 - "They stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him, and then twisted together a crown of thorns and set it on his head. They put a staff in his right hand. Then they knelt in front of him and mocked him. "Hail, king of the Jews!" they said. They spit on him, and took the staff and struck him on the head again and again."

    Mark 15:19 - "Again and again they struck him on the head with a staff and spit on him. "

    The band of soldiers tortured Jesus beyond recognition. You can literally feel the extreme pain and suffering of Christ on the cross.

    Matthew 27:39 - "And those passing by were hurling abuse at Him, wagging their heads"

    Mark 15:29 - "Those passing by were hurling abuse at Him, wagging their heads, and saying, "Ha! You who are going to destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days.."

    People laughed at him and shook their heads in contempt, as was prophesied. And Jesus did not hide from their abuse.

    Luke 23:35-37 - "And the rulers also with them derided him, saying, He saved others; let him save himself, if he be Christ, the chosen of God. And the soldiers also mocked him"

    Matthew 27:42 - "He saved others," they said, "but he can't save himself! He's the king of Israel! Let him come down now from the cross, and we will believe in him."

    Mark 15:31 - "In the same way the chief priests and the teachers of the law mocked him among themselves. "He saved others," they said, "but he can't save himself!"

    Jesus was then scourged and flogged before his crucifixion.

    John 19:1 - "Then Pilate took Jesus and had him flogged."

    Sceptics laughed and said that the so-called Roman scourge was not as brutal as it was made to seem. But let us look at a non-Christian historical account of Roman scourging or flogging. Flavius Josephus wrote about a man named Jesus ben Ananias in "The Wars of the Jews":

    "..brought him before the Roman governor; there, although flayed to the bone with scourges, he neither sued for mercy nor shed a tear, but, merely introducing the most mournful of variations into his utterances, responded to each lashing with "Woe to Jerusalem!" Favius Josephus, The Wars of the Jews

    The flaying or flogging was so severe that it caused the flesh to tear and reveal the bone underneath. Imagine the pain when that happens to you!

    #9 Jesus was cursed and crucified as a criminal

    Deuteronomy 21:23 - "…because anyone who is hung on a pole is under God's curse."

    Jews consider crucifixion a curse and shame, as it was used as a punishment for criminals.

    Isaiah 53:12 -"..because he poured out his life unto death, and was numbered with the transgressors."

    Isaiah 53:9 - "..He was assigned a grave with the wicked.."

    Jesus was counted as one of the criminals in the city and given the death penalty. He would have been buried among the criminals if no one had come to receive the body.

    Mark 15:27 - "And with him they crucify two thieves; the one on his right hand, and the other on his left."

    The following Bible verses record the full events of Jesus' crucifixion:

    John 19

    Luke 23

    Mark 15

    Matthew 27

    #10 Jesus was pierced

    Isaiah 53:5 - "..But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities…"

    Zachariah 12:10 - "And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication. They will look on me, the one they have pierced, and they will mourn for him as one mourns for an only child, and grieve bitterly for him as one grieves for a firstborn son."

    Psalm 22:16 - "For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet."

    Prophecy Fulfilled

    John 19:34 - "But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately blood and water came out. "

    The Gospel of John is the only book to record the piercing of Jesus' side.

    John 20:27 - "..Then he said to Thomas, "Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe."

    If you read the above verse carefully, you will find that Jesus asked Thomas to put his finger on his nailed hands but to place his hand on his side!

    This clearly shows the extent of the injury that Christ has received. The soldier who pierced Jesus had, in my opinion, created a "hole" large enough to fit an entire hand!

    #11 Jesus garment was divided by lot

    Psalm 22:18 - "They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture."

    Prophecy Fulfilled

    John 19:23-24 - "When the soldiers crucified Jesus, they took his clothes, dividing them into four shares, one for each of them, with the undergarment remaining. This garment was seamless, woven in one piece from top to bottom.

    "Let's not tear it," they said to one another. "Let's decide by lot who will get it."

    Mark 15:234 - "And they crucified him. Dividing up his clothes, they cast lots to see what each would get."

    Luke 23:34 - "..And they divided up his clothes by casting lots."

    Matthew 27:35 - "When they had crucified him, they divided up his clothes by casting lots."

    What was Kind David experiencing at the time when he wrote Psalm 22?

    I am just amazed at how he could have written about this prophecy hundreds of years before it happened, unless it was inspired by the Holy Spirit.

    #12 Jesus bones were not broken

    Psalm 22:17 - "I can count all my bones. They look and stare at me."

    Psalms 34:20 - "He guards all his bones; Not one of them is broken."

    Similarly, in the instructions for the Passover meal regarding the sacrificial lamb, the bones of the lamb are not to be broken too!

    Exodus 12:46 - "..You shall not break any of its bones"

    Numbers 9:12 - "They must not leave any of it till morning or break any of its bones."

    Prophecy Fulfilled

    John 19:33 - "but coming to Jesus, when they saw that He was already dead, they did not break His legs."

    It is indeed amazing how Jesus was portrayed as the sacrificial lamb that was to atone for our sins.

    #13 Jesus was thirsty and given vinegar or gall to drink

    Psalms 69:21 - "They also gave me gall for my food, And for my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink."

    Psalm 22;15 - "..and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death."

    Prophecy fulfilled

    Matthew 27:34 - "There they offered Jesus wine to drink, mixed with gall; but after tasting it, he refused to drink it"

    Mark 15:23 - " Then they offered him wine mixed with myrrh, but he did not take it."

    John 19:28-29 - "Later, knowing that everything had now been finished, and so that Scripture would be fulfilled, Jesus said, "I am thirsty." A jar of wine vinegar was there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a stalk of the hyssop plant, and lifted it to Jesus' lips"

    Luke 23:36 - "The soldiers also came up and mocked him. They offered him wine vinegar.."

    What is the difference between wine and vinegar?

    Wine is an alcohol. But left in the open for some time, it becomes sour because the bacteria in the air convert the wine to vinegar. Hence, sour wine.

    What is gall? What is the difference between myrrh and gall?

    In Greek, the word "gall" refers to "bile" or "bitter herbs". It is unlikely to be bile from an animal. Hence the word "gall" refers to "bitter herbs".

    Myrrh, on the other hand, is an aromatic spice and tastes bitter. It is likely that Matthew's narrative referred to something bitter that was added to the wine. Whereas, Mark specified that it was myrrh that was the bitter substance added to the wine.

    Many believed that myrrh was added as a pain reliever, but its analgesic effect is mild. Since myrrh was considered an expensive spice, some even proposed that the myrrh drink was a mockery drink given by the soldiers to the "King of the Jews".

    In any case, Jesus rejected any of these spice-laced, sour wines. We see that when the soldiers offered him, for the second time, normal, sour wine to quench his thirst, Jesus accepted it before giving up his spirit.

    #14 Jesus shouted: "Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?"

    Psalm 22:1 - "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?"

    Jesus was fulfilling what was written in Psalms 22 by directing us to the passage.

    You could also feel his pain and anguish when the sins of the world were placed on him. Jesus, as a man, felt abandoned when the sins of the world, past, present, and future, were placed on him as an atonement sacrificial lamb.

    Prophecy Fulfilled

    Jesus cried out with a loud voice and was recorded in Matthew 27:46 and Mark 15:34.

    #15 Jesus said "Into they hands, I commit my spirit.."

    Psalm 31:5 - "Into thine hand I commit my spirit.."

    Prophecy Fulfilled 

    Luke 23:46 - "Jesus called out with a loud voice, "Father, into your hands I commit my spirit." When he had said this, he breathed his last."

    #16 Jesus was buried in a rich man's tomb

    Isaiah 53:7 - "..He was assigned a grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death.."

    Prophecy Fulfilled

    Matthew 27:57-60 - "Now when evening had come, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who himself had also become a disciple of Jesus. This man went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the body to be given to him. When Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, and laid it in his new tomb which he had hewn out of the rock; and he rolled a large stone against the door of the tomb, and departed."

    Luke 23:50- 53 - "And, behold, there was a man named Joseph, a counsellor; and he was a good man, and a just: (The same had not consented to the counsel and deed of them;) he was of Arimathaea, a city of the Jews: who also himself waited for the kingdom of God. This man went unto Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus. And he took it down, and wrapped it in linen, and laid it in a sepulchre that was hewn in stone, wherein never man before was laid."

    Mark 15:43 - "Joseph of Arimathaea, an honourable counsellor, which also waited for the kingdom of God, came, and went in boldly unto Pilate, and craved the body of Jesus."

    Only a rich person in the time of Jesus would have enough money to hire someone to cut a hole in a rock as a tomb.

    John 19:38-42 - "After this, Joseph of Arimathea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly, for fear of the Jews, asked Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus; and Pilate gave him permission. So he came and took the body of Jesus. And Nicodemus, who at first came to Jesus by night, also came, bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pounds. Then they took the body of Jesus, and bound it in strips of linen with the spices, as the custom of the Jews is to bury. Now in the place where He was crucified there was a garden, and in the garden a new tomb in which no one had yet been laid. So there they laid Jesus, because of the Jews' Preparation Day, for the tomb was nearby."

    Notice that Nicodemus came with a hundred pounds of spices (about 34 kg - that's a lot!) to be used to preserve Jesus' body. It was a hasty burial, as the Passover festival was about to begin.

    #17 Jesus died and resurrected

    Isaiah 53:12 - "..because he poured out his life unto death.."

    Isaiah 53:10 - "..and though the Lord makes his life an offering for sin, he will see his offspring and prolong his days, and the will of the Lord will prosper in his hand."

    Since his days were prolonged, it would mean that Jesus was resurrected!

    Psalm 16:10 - "For You will not leave my soul in Sheol, Nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption."

    Sheol is the land of the dead. God will not leave Jesus in the place of the dead or that his body becomes decayed. Jesus resurrected!

    Isaiah 26:19 - "Your dead shall live; Together with my dead body they shall arise. Awake and sing, you who dwell in dust; For your dew is like the dew of herbs, And the earth shall cast out the dead."

    Daniel 9:26 - "After the sixty-two 'sevens,' the Anointed One will be put to death and will have nothing."

    Daniel's prophecies looked at the timeframe when the messiah was put to death. We will look into this in another post.

    Prophecy Fulfilled

    Jesus died and was resurrected.

    It is the cornerstone of our Christian faith.  What is the evidence of Jesus death and resurrection? You can read the full article here.

    #18 There was darkness and earthquake when Jesus died

    Amos 8:8-9 - "Will not the land tremble for this, and all who live in it mourn? The whole land will rise like the Nile; it will be stirred up and then sink like the river of Egypt. "In that day," declares the Sovereign Lord,"I will make the sun go down at noon and darken the earth in broad daylight."

    Clearly, the above describes a violent earthquake; otherwise, how would the land "rise" and "sink"? The earth darkened when the sun "goes down at noon". These are supernatural events that skeptics use to attack the Bible.

    Prophecy Fulfilled

    Mark 15:33 - "And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour."

    Matthew 27:45 - "Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour."

    Matthew 27: 51 - "And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent.. "

    Luke 23:44-45 - "And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. And the sun was darkened.."

    #19 Jesus resurrection accompanied with resurrection of others

    Isaiah 26:19 - "Your dead shall live; Together with my dead body they shall arise. Awake and sing, you who dwell in dust; For your dew is like the dew of herbs, And the earth shall cast out the dead."

    Prophecy Fulfilled

    Matthew 27:52-53 - "And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many."

    It would have been an incredible sight! Like what the centurion who witnessed the event said:

    Mark 15:39 - "And when the centurion, which stood over against him, saw that he so cried out, and gave up the ghost, he said, Truly this man was the Son of God."

    #20 Jesus accusers were ashamed


    Psalm 109:29 - "Let my accusers be clothed with shame, And let them cover themselves with their own disgrace as with a mantle."

    Prophecy Fulfilled

    Luke 23:48 - "And all the people that came together to that sight, beholding the things which were done, smote their breasts, and returned."

    Imagine the people beating their own breasts after what they had done to Jesus after witnessing the supernatural events that took place when he died. These were likely the same people who had welcomed Jesus five days earlier when Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey.

    Also, these may be the same group of people whom the Jewish leaders instigated to shout "Crucify him! Crucify him!" when they were convinced that Jesus was not the earthly messiah they had hoped for.

    They regretted their actions in being part of that mob that caused Jesus' death.

    However, it was also this feeling of regret that could have sparked the rapid conversion of these Jews when news and the appearance of Jesus spread throughout the city.

    #21 Judas' potter land

    Zachariah 11:13 - "And the Lord said to me, "Throw it to the potter"-that princely price they set on me. So I took the thirty pieces of silver and threw them into the house of the Lord for the potter."

    Prophecy Fulfilled

    Matthew 27:5-7 - "And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself. And the chief priests took the silver pieces and said, It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury, because it is the price of blood. And they took counsel, and bought with them the potter's field, to bury strangers in."

    Act 1: 18-19 - "Now this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity; and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out. And it was known unto all the dwellers at Jerusalem; insomuch as that field is called in their proper tongue, Aceldama, that is to say, The field of blood."

    The potters' field was a site where potters collected high-quality, deeply red clay for the production of ceramics. However, the chief priests used the blood money of betrayal, to buy a plot of land to bury strangers in. The land was renamed to Acedldama or "the field of Blood".

    In the above verses, you find Judas regretting his actions and trying to hang himself, but instead, he fell headlong and his bowels were split open.
