Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on John 19:31-37.


John 19:36

_ _ that the scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken — The reference is to the paschal lamb, as to which this ordinance was stringent (Exodus 12:46; Numbers 9:12. Compare 1 Corinthians 5:7). But though we are to see here the fulfillment of a very definite typical ordinance, we shall, on searching deeper, see in it a remarkable divine interposition to protect the sacred body of Christ from the last indignity after He had finished the work given Him to do. Every imaginable indignity had been permitted before that, up to the moment of His death. But no sooner is that over than an Unseen hand is found to have provided against the clubs of the rude soldiers coming in contact with that temple of the Godhead. Very different from such violence was that spear-thrust, for which not only doubting Thomas would thank the soldier, but intelligent believers in every age, to whom the certainty of their Lord’s death and resurrection is the life of their whole Christianity.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 19:31-37.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 19:36

A bone of it shall not be broken — This was originally spoken of the paschal lamb, an eminent type of Christ. Exodus 12:46.
