Introduction

Continuing with the specific prophecies of the Messiah’s arrest, trial and crucifixion, we learn that the Messiah would be mocked.

Old Testament Prophecy

All who see me mock me; they hurl insults, shaking their heads: [Psalm 22:7 NIV]

"He trusts in the LORD ; let the LORD rescue him. Let him deliver him, since he delights in him." [Psalm 22:8 NIV]

For I endure scorn for your sake, and shame covers my face. [Psalm 69:7 NIV]

I am an object of scorn to my accusers; when they see me, they shake their heads. [Psalm 109:25 NIV]

New Testament Fulfillment

But the Pharisees said, “It is by the prince of demons that he drives out demons.” [Matthew 9:34 NIV]

They spit on him, and took the staff and struck him on the head again and again. [Matthew 27:30 NIV]

Those who passed by hurled insults at him, shaking their heads [Matthew 27:39 NIV]

Those who passed by hurled insults at him, shaking their heads and saying, You who are going to destroy the temple and build it in three days, save yourself! Come down from the cross, if you are the Son of God!” [Matthew 27:39-40 NIV]

In the same way the chief priests, the teachers of the law and the elders mocked him. “He saved others,” they said, “but he can’t save himself! He’s the King of Israel! Let him come down now from the cross, and we will believe in him. 43 He trusts in God. Let God rescue him now if he wants him, for he said, ‘I am the Son of God.’ ” [Matthew 27:41-43 NIV]

Isn’t this the carpenter? Isn’t this Mary’s son and the brother of James, Joseph, Judas and Simon? Aren’t his sisters here with us?” And they took offense at him. [Mark 6:3 NIV]

Then some began to spit at him; they blindfolded him, struck him with their fists, and said, “Prophesy!” And the guards took him and beat him. [Mark 14:65 NIV]

Again and again they struck him on the head with a staff and spit on him. Falling on their knees, they paid homage to him [Mark 15:19 NIV]

Those who passed by hurled insults at him, shaking their heads and saying, “So! You who are going to destroy the temple and build it in three days, come down from the cross and save yourself!” [Mark 15:29-30 NIV]

Let this Christ, this King of Israel, come down now from the cross, that we may see and believe. Those crucified with him also heaped insults on him. [Mark 15:32 NIV]

Then Herod and his soldiers ridiculed and mocked him. Dressing him in an elegant robe, they sent him back to Pilate. [Luke 23:11 NIV]

The people stood watching, and the rulers even sneered at him. They said, “He saved others; let him save himself if he is the Christ of God, the Chosen One.” [Luke 23:35 NIV]

Many of them said, “He is demon possessed and raving mad. Why listen to him?” [John 10:20 NIV]

For even Christ did not please himself but, as it is written: “The insults of those who insult you have fallen on me.” [Romans 15:3 NIV]
