Re:Verse passage – John 19:31-37 (day seven)

A command from the very first Passover and reiterated by the psalmist:

He keeps all his bones,
Not one of them is broken. Psalm 34:20

This may not mean much to us, but to John and the other followers looking on, this is a moment of hope in day of despair. This is where it begins to click. This is the Passover Lamb. This Passover Lamb is The Lord. Even if our heart stops beating, He can bring dry bones to life.

Thus says the Lord God to these bones, ‘Behold, I will cause breath to enter you that you may come to life.’ Ezekiel 37:5

His body may be broken, but His bones tell a different story. Sunday is coming. He will bring His own dry bones to life. There may be scars on His hands, but He will run out of that grave on unbroken legs!
