THE WORD OF GOD and its words are classed as a phenomenon in multitudes of ways. It must be called supernatural in origin, being a record given by spirit. It is a work miraculously preserved through many centuries prior to 90 AD. No other book (or compilation of books, as is the Bible) comes close to its greatness. Our subject today deals with the foretelling of details about Jesus’ torture and crucifixion and the recommended action for readers.
The Bible itself proves of its own authenticity and spiritual origin, as explained in my research article, The Origin, Authenticity, and Purpose. As workmen of the Word, as explained in my article Bible Basics: Origin, Purpose and Reliability, rightly dividing the Word of Truth, we can delve into and enjoy its marvelous beauty and intricacy. We can dig in and mine it and discover some real jewels.
Hundreds of prophecies are contained within the Bible, some fulfilled (with amazing accuracy and detail), some now being fulfilled, and many yet future.
Most of these revelations about the past, present, and future, concern the coming and returning of the Messiah and his birth and life. There must be 150 alone about Christ in my post on The Hidden Scarlet Thread: Christ is Woven Through Every Bible Book. There are a dozen given here on the crucifixion alone.

Action to Take
Some believers spend 10 hours or more each week studying the Bible because it is so thrilling. At a bare minimum, take 1) a few minutes each day to read or study the Bible and 2) set aside a block of at least a couple hours each week and 3) tell some people about these prophecies. For the curious unbeliever and new believers, I always suggest starting with the reading of Ephesians, then John 1, then the gospel of John.
