“Prophesy Fulfilled, Religious Revealed”
The Religious will keep the show going.
Jesus was dead.
The thieves were not.
But, the Religious did not know, so they requested that the legs of the crucified be broken. This would hasten the impending deaths.
They needed them dead so that they could get them off the crosses...time for a religious feast.
John 19:31 gives us timing detail that the Body of Christ has ignored for centuries.
Jesus died on the “day of preparation”...Nisan 14...the day the Law required the Passover meal to be prepared.
The next day was the Sabbath.
Not the weekly Sabbath.
It was the Sabbath...a “high day”...of the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, Nisan 15.
Due to lack of understanding of this timing we have much confusion as to the events of the week of Jesus’ death.
Jesus died on Wednesday...not on “good Friday”.
At sundown, it became Thursday.
Thursday - evening/morning
Friday - evening/morning
Saturday - evening morning
At sundown Saturday it becomes Sunday.
Jesus was resurrected at sometime prior to sunrise on Sunday when the women discovered Him gone.
Jesus was in the belly of the earth three days and three nights - as He said He would.
King James Version (KJV)
39 But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas:
40 For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
41 The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here.
All this fulfilled the prophetic Word of the Lord and the spoken Word of Jesus on earth.
- He was pierced for our transgressions…Isaiah
- Not a bone of Him shall be broken...Psalm 34
- They shall look on Him Who they pierced...Zechariah 12
Rejoice in that which was done for you.
Reject the heart of the Religionists.
