John Chapter 19 Verses 31-37 Then the Jews, because it was the day of preparation, so that the bodies would not remain on the cross on the Sabbath (for the Sabbath was a high day), asked Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away.
So the soldiers came, and broke the legs of the first man and of the other who was crucified with Him; but coming to Jesus, when they saw that He was already dead, they did not break His legs. But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear and immediately blood and water came out. And he who has seen has testified, and his testimony is true; and he knows that he is telling the truth, so that you also may believe.
For these things came to pass to fulfill the Scripture,
“NOT A BONE OF HIM SHALL BE BROKEN.” Psalm 34:20
And again another Scripture says,
“THEY SHALL LOOK ON HIM WHOM THEY PIERCED.” Zechariah 12:10
The Apostle John was an eyewitness of Jesus’ death on the cross, His burial, and His resurrection. He also was an eyewitness of Jesus’ ascension into Heaven.
An eyewitness – a person who actually sees some act, occurrence, or thing and can give a firsthand account of it. To view with one’s own eyes.
We are each eyewitnesses of what Christ has done in our lives— how He has loved us, saved us, called us, changed us, restored us, healed us, helped us, empowered us, encouraged us, taught us, corrected us, etc.. As John shared his eyewitness accounts, pointing all hearers / readers to Jesus Christ the Son of God, we must share our eyewitness accounts with the expressed purpose to point all to Jesus Christ!
