His hands and feet were pierced

This is another fulfilled prophecy which finds its fulfillment in the person and life of Christ, Jesus of Nazareth.

Christ was crucified in the customary Roman manner, the hands and feet being pierced by huge spikes which fastened the body to the wooden cross.

Old Testament Prophecy, Psalm 22:16

"For dogs have surrounded me; A band of evildoers has encompassed me;They pierced my hands and my feet."

Fulfillment of this prophecy is recorded in Luke 23:33

"When they came to the place called The Skull, there they crucified Him and the criminals, one on the right and the other on the left."
