Preaching In The Synagogue At Pisidian Antioch

27 For the people living in Jerusalem, together with their ruling officials, did not understand [that Jesus was the Messiah] or what the message of the prophets, which is read every Sabbath day, really meant. So, [because of this] they [actually] made these Scripture predictions come true by condemning Jesus. 28 They asked Pilate to have Him put to death, even though they could not find any [legitimate] reason to execute Him. 29 And when they had done everything that was predicted about Him, they took Jesus down from the tree [i.e., the cross] and placed Him in a tomb.
