11. He would be forsaken by His disciples (Zechariah 13:7
and Mark 14:50).
Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, against the man who
is close to me!" declares the LORD Almighty. "Strike the
shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered, and I will
turn my hand against the little one"
12. The money would be thrown in the temple and used to
buy the potter's field (Zechariah 11:13 and
"And the LORD said to me, "Throw it to the potter"-the
handsome price at which they priced me! So I took the
thirty pieces of silver and threw them into the house
of the LORD to the potter"
13. He would be accused by false witnesses (Psalms 35:11
and Matthew 26:59-60).
"Ruthless witnesses come forward; they question me on
things I know nothing about".
14. He would be silent before His accusers (Isaiah 53:7
and Matthew 27:12-14).
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 her shearers is silent, so he did not
open his mouth"
15. He would be beaten by his enemies (Isaiah 50:6, 53:5,
and Matthew 27:26).
"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."
"But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed
for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace
was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed"
