I understand from the PromisedMessiah 1835-1908, that Pilate helped (secretly) Jesus save his life.
That’s an usubstantiated false claim from Islam.
[size=3]According to Jewish custom it was unlawful and a punishable crime to let anyone remain on the Cross on the Sabbath day, or during the night previous to it; Jews, like Muslims, observed the lunar calendar, sunset being regarded as beginning the day.
Uh, Jesus Christ was murdered on the cross because of the decision of Pontius Pilate who was NOT a Jew, but a governor of the Roman government, so why would the Roman government obey a (supposed) Jewish custom?
[size=3]Similarly the dream which the wife of Pilate dreamt was a part of God’s design, and it could never be that this design should fail in its object; and just as the possibility of Jesus being put to death during the Egyptian journey was against a specific promise of God, so here it is unthinkable that the angel of Almighty God should appear to the wife of Pilate and should direct her to say that if Jesus died on the Cross it would not be a happy thing for her, and yet the angel’s appearance should go in vain,[/size]
Hmmm. I don’t recall an angel visiting Pilates wife in her dream. Could you cite the verse(s)?
[size=3] and Jesus should be allowed to suffer death on the Cross. Is there any example of this in the world? None.
[size=2]Actually it is prophesied in the OT as there are a plethora of prophesies in the book of Isaiah foreshadowing Jesus the Messiah.[/size]
[LEFT]Crucified, “pierced through hands and feet”:Zechariah 12:10, Psalm 22:16… Matthew 27:35, John 20:27.
Ps.22:16 Dogs have surrounded me; a band of evil men has encircled me, they have pierced my hands and my feet. (Zec.12:10)
Mt.27:35 And they crucified him.
Jn. 20:25-26 Now Thomas (called Didymus)… he said to them, “Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe it.” (Jn.19:37, 20:27)[/LEFT]
[LEFT]Crucified with malefactors: Isaiah 53:12… Mark 15:27-28.
Isa.53:12 Therefore I will give him a portion among the great, and he will divide the spoils with the strong, because he poured out his life unto death, and was numbered with the transgressors. For he bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.
Mt 27:38 Two robbers were crucified with him, one on his right and one on his left. (Mk 15:27-28; Lk 23:33) [/LEFT]
Agonized in Thirst: Psalm 22:15… John 19:28.
Ps.22:15 My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death.
Jn.19:28 After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst.
[LEFT]Given gall and vinegar: Psalm 69:21… Matthew 27:34, 48, John 19:19.
Ps.69:21 They put gall in my food and gave me vinegar for my thirst.
Mat.27:34 They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink (Jn.19:29, Mat.27:48). [/LEFT]
[LEFT]No bones broken: Psalm 34:20… John 19:32-36.
Ps 34:20 He protects all his bones, not one of them will be broken. (Ex 12:46)
Jn 19:33 But when they came to Jesus and found that he was already dead, they did not break his legs.[/LEFT]
[LEFT]His side pierced: Zechariah 12:10… John 19:34.
Zec.12:10 They will look on me, the one they have pierced, and they will mourn for him as one mourns for an only child, and grieve bitterly for him as one grieves for a firstborn son.
Jn 19:34 Instead, one of the soldiers pierced Jesus’ side with a spear, bringing a sudden flow of blood and water. [/LEFT]
[size=3]The pure conscience of all good men, when informed of the dream of Pilate’s wife, will no doubt testify that it was a fact that the purpose of that dream was to lay the foundation for the rescue of Jesus.
Huh? “the rescue of Jesus?” He didn’t need to be “rescued” He willingly laid down His life a ransom for all.
[size=3]It is of course open to everybody to deny an out-and-out truth; out of prejudice born of his creed, he may refuse to accept it, but fairness would oblige us to believe that the dream of Pilate’s wife is a piece of weighty evidence in support of Jesus’ escape from the Cross.
What a myth without substantiation. Again, I pray you would see the truth that Jesus willingly went to the cross as a perfect sacrifice for our sins.
