Jesus said it was finished. The soldiers wanted to break the legs of the crucified men. Thus, they broke the legs of two other crucified individuals, but Jesus was already dead. Instead, they pierced the side of Jesus. This testimony was true. Jesus had no broken bones, but they pierced him. Joseph of Arimathea got the body of Jesus from Pilate. With Nicodemus, they wrapped the body of Jesus and put it in a new tomb that was nearby. Have you ever been near a dead body right after the person died?
