It is comical when bu(utteredbuttturdlick)ford makes spurious claims...<quoted text>
I have never claimed to be a Hebrew scholar.
The author of John ridiculously had his clothes, whatever he was wearing, taken by the Roman soldiers to get the so-called Psalm "prophesy" fulfilled. There is no prophesy at all.
In Psalms 22, David was lamenting! He was asking for the LORD's help. Jesus was not at all attacked by bulls, dogs and lions of Bashan. They were never at his throat and he was not under any threat. His bones were not disjointed, had no offspring and was not buried among the wicked.
Jesus himself never self-loathed! It was John, who self-loathed.
And why would the unbelieving Romans talk about a prophesy and fulfill the scripture for Jesus?
"They part my garments among them, and for my vesture do they cast lots.", simply means "They loot my wealth and property and divide amongst themselves".
When the Romans occupied, they did not force the Jews to take their clothes off and did not share their garments by balloting or lottery.
Why do you find it so hard to understand? Tell me what did they do with a man's torn and tattered clothes?
Surely the prophecy worked on almost all chaps who were hanged/"crucified".. .as they were often stripped naked..
so any one of them could have been fulfilling the meaningless prophecy!
What's new....let's make them all gods..lol
