Analysis of Jesus Claiming To Be Pure And Sinless

Making the unsuitable suitable New Testament style
It is alleged that Jesus was spiritually pure and sinless and that his supposed sacrificial death was prefigured in the Jewish Scriptures by images and types (e.g. Isaiah 53, Psalm 22).   But who says he was spiritually pure and sinless?  Who says his death was prefigured in the Jewish Scriptures?  Only the tendentiously self-serving authors of the New Testament and their adherents!

This SIngle Verse Is A Conditional Statement You Have Missed

ISAIAH 53:10

53:10:  “If he would offer himself as a guilt-offering”

The suffering servant as a guilt-offering
Following the initial declaration that it was God’s will for the servant to suffer, the verse is written as a conditional statement.  If condition A is satisfied, then the outcome B will occur.  That is, the rewards of verse 10 are contingent on the servant’s willingness to offer himself as anasham, “guilt-offering.”  

Was Jesus Actually Scourged Before Pilate?

The rest of the story
John’s claim that Jesus was “scourged” during the trial before Pilate (John 19:1) leaves open the extent of injury incurred by Jesus at the hands of the Romans.  Generally, the normal Roman thoroughness, when it came to torture, would have left no doubts of torture being inflicted. Jesus would have bled profusely and would have had great difficulty standing on his feet.
