"I am a worm"...

"But I am a worm, and no man; A reproach of men, and despised by the people." Psalm 22:6

This was something I heard from a Pastor (who I can't remember) a while ago and I thought I would share it with you.

This Psalm is speaking of the suffering Messiah.

Check out what kind of "worm" this is: "Coccus Ilicis"

"When the female of the scarlet worm species was ready to give birth to her young, she would attach her body to the trunk of a tree, fixing herself so firmly and permanently that she would never leave again. The eggs deposited beneath her body were thus protected until the larvae were hatched and able to enter their own life cycle. As the mother died, the crimson fluid stained her body and the surrounding wood. From the dead bodies of such female scarlet worms, the commercial scarlet dyes of antiquity were extracted. What a picture this gives of Christ, dying on the tree, shedding his precious blood that he might 'bring many sons unto glory' (Hbr 2:10)! He died for us, that we might live through him! Psa 22:6 describes such a worm and gives us this picture of Christ. (cf. Isa 1:18)" (Henry Morris. Biblical Basis for Modern Science, Baker Book House, 1985, p. 73) - Blue Letter Bible

IS THAT NOT SUPER COOL!! Tell me that the bible is only written by men... those who say that have never studied it, not with "eyes that see" anyway.
