JOHN 19:24-27 JESUS, KNOWING ALL THINGS WERE ACCOMPLISHED, THAT THE SCRIPTURE MIGHT BE FULFILLED
John 19:24 They said therefore among themselves, "Let us not tear it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be," that the Scripture might be fulfilled which says: "They divided My garments among them, And for My clothing they cast lots." Therefore the soldiers did these things. 25 Now there stood by the cross of Jesus His mother, and His mother's sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. 26 When Jesus therefore saw His mother, and the disciple whom He loved standing by, He said to His mother, "Woman, behold your son!" 27 Then He said to the disciple, "Behold your mother!" And from that hour that disciple took her to his own home.
More Scripture are being fulfilled through Jesus & all that He does & has done to Him while on the cross. These cold callous soldiers are gambling for His garments as He is suffering the most cruel death ever devised up to that time. All they can see is we are getting some material goods out of this deal. Meanwhile Jesus is paying for the sins of the whole world. There are 4 soldiers who are cruel & they are contrasted by 4 loving women who have been there for Jesus & still are as He dies. The last thing Jesus does as He is dying is to give us the example to take care of the widows. He tells His mother to treat John as her son & for John to take care of His mother as if she was his own.
