Prophecies of the Messiah – Gambled for His Clothes

They divide my clothes among them and cast lots for my garment. (Psalms 22:18 NIV)

We find the fulfillment of this prophecy in Matthew 27:35; Luke 23:34; and John 19:23, 24.  I can’t imagine hanging on a cross, in agony, half naked, having a difficult time breathing and seeing the solders have no respect for the life they are putting to death and gambling for the clothes of our Saviour.  Jesus says nothing except pray for forgiveness for those that are crucifying Him.
