For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, "A bone of him shall not be broken." And again another scripture, "They shall look on him whom they pierced."
John 19
Matthew 27, John 19

Now it was the day of Preparation, and the next day was to be a special Sabbath. Because the Jews did not want the bodies left on the crosses during the Sabbath, they asked Pilate to have the legs broken and the bodies taken down.

Pilate sent his soldiers to brake the legs of the first man who had been crucified with Jesus, and then those of the other, but when they came to Jesus, they found he was already dead. One of the soldiers, to be sure that he was no longer living, ran his spear into the side of his dead body, and out of the wound came pouring both water and blood.

The man who saw it has given testimony, and his testimony is true. He knows that he tells the truth, and he testifies so that you also may believe.

These things happened so that the scripture would be fulfilled, "Not one of his bones will be broken", and, as another scripture says, "They will look on the one they have pierced."

A rich man who came from the town of Arimathea, and was named Joseph, went boldly in to Pilate, and asked that the body of Jesus might be given to him. Pilate wondered that he had died so soon, for often men lived on the cross two or three days. But when he found that Jesus was really dead, he gave his body to Joseph.

With Pilate's permission, Joseph of Arimathea came and took the body away to be buried in Joseph's tomb.
