Death of Christ and Silent or Black Saturday #1 Abandonment and burial

We have come to the point where the people in Jerusalem had seen that the man of flesh and blood, Jeshua ben Josef, also known as the son of man and son of God, came to his death at the wood of execution.

When Jesus walked around preaching about his heavenly Father and times to come, many wondered who he was and what gave him the authority to speak about the prophets and God. Several people found it weird that this Nazarene could do such strange things, like making blind see again, and paralysed people walk again. Jesus never claimed that it was by his power that he did such wondrous works.  It annoyed many that he claimed he was doing those miracles by the power of God. How could a man claim to do something by God’s Power or even claim that he could unveil things because “his father in heaven” allowed it?
His claims to come from God and to do works God gave him to do, made many angry and gave reason for them to kill him.

“Everything has been given me by my Father. No one perfectly knows the Son but the Father. Nor does anyone know the Father perfectly but the Son; and whom ever the Son wishes to unveil Him.” (Mt 11:27 mhm)

“Upon approaching Jesus he said to them, “All authority in heaven and upon earth was given to me.” (Mt 28:18 mhm)

“17  However, Jesus answered them, “My Father has been working to the present, and I continue to work.”18 Therefore, because of this, the Jews were seeking for a way to kill Jesus because they thought he not only was breaking the Sabbath, but also he was saying The God was his own Father, making himself equal to The God. 19 Therefore, Jesus answered them:

“I tell you this truth: The Son is unable to do anything from himself unless he sees something the Father is doing. For whatever that One may do, it is possible the Son also may do likewise.20 For the Father has affection for the Son and He is showing the Son what He is doing. And He will show the Son even greater works so that you may struck with awe.21 For just as the Father raises the dead and makes them alive, so also the Son makes alive those he wishes.22 Because the Father judges no one, but all the judgment He has given to the Son,23 so that everyone may honor the Son just as they honor the Father. The person not honoring the Son is not honoring the Father who sent him.24 I tell you this truth: The person who listens to my word and continues to believe in the One who sent me possesses endless Life. And so that person does not come into condemnation, but has crossed over from the Death unto the Life.

25 “I tell you this truth: The hour is coming, and is now present, when the dead will listen to the voice of the Son of The God, and those who have responded will live.26 For just as the Father has Life within Himself, so also He gave to the Son to have Life within himself.27 Also, the Father has given to the Son to perform judgment because he is the Son of Humankind.28 Do not wonder about this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear the Son’s voice29 and those having done good things will come out unto a resurrection of Life. Those who have habitually done corrupt things unto a resurrection of condemnation.30 I am not able to do anything from myself. Just as I hear I judge, and my judgment is just because I am not seeking my own will, but the will of the One who sent me.

31  “If I ever testify about myself my testimony is true.32 There is someone else who testifies about me and I know that his testimony about me is true.33 You Jews sent representatives to approach John, and he has testified regarding the truth.34 However I do not accept human testimony, but these things I tell you are so that all of you might be saved.35 John was the burning and illuminating lamp, and all of you wished to rejoice facing toward the light in him for an hour.36 But, I possess a testimony greater than John, for the works the Father has given to me so that I might complete them–these works that I am doing–testify that the Father has sent me forth. (Joh 5:17-36 mhm)

“27 Peace I leave you. I give you apostles my own peace. I am not giving it to you as the world of humankind gives it. Do not let your hearts be troubled nor cowardly.28  You apostles heard that I said to you, ‘I am departing and I am returning to you apostles.’ If you loved me you would certainly rejoice, because I am going toward the Father, because the Father is greater than me.29 And now I have told you apostles before it happens, so that whenever it does happen you should believe.30 I shall not speak with you much longer, for the ruler of the world of humankind is coming, and yet he has nothing on me.31 But, so that the world of humankind may realize that I continue to love the Father, and just as He gave me a commandment, just so I am doing. Rouse yourselves, and let us continue from here.” (Joh 14:27-31 mhm)

Jesus was taken and judged to be killed. He was brought to Golgotha to be impaled as a murderer or a dangerous criminal. When he was hanging there at the torture stake, people mocked with him and asked him, when he would have connections with God, to come from the stake and to save himself.

“and calling out, “The person who said ‘tear the Temple down and in three days’ –save yourself! If you are a son of The God come down from the stake.”” (Mt 27:40 mhm)

“Now it was nine in the morning when they impaled Jesus.” (Mr 15:25 mhm)

“Now let Christ the King of Israel come down now from the stake so that we may all believe!”” (Mr 15:32 mhm)

“Observe carefully the Arch- Leader and Perfecter of our faith, Jesus–who endured execution because of the Joy that lay before him–disdained the humiliation of the stake. He has sat down on the right hand of the Throne of The God.” (Heb 12:2 mhm)

Several people saw in Jesus a con-man or imposter. Also today there are lots of people who do not want to believe who Jesus really was or is. There are also a lot of people who minimalise the deed Jesus did, giving his won life to do the Will of God instead of doing his own will. They say Jesus is God, but in such case, Jesus would always have done the will of himself, though in the olive garden he prayed to God with the words:

““Father, if you wish remove this cup from me. However, let Your will occur and not my own will.”” (Lu 22:42 mhm)

Jesus one moment at the stake thought to have been abandoned by his heavenly Father. It also looked like some of his close friends had abandoned him, like Peter not daring to say he was with Christ. It looked like nobody wanted to come to his defence when he was on trial. At the stake, Jesus called to his heavenly Father, making it clear he is not that person like so many so-called Christians claim.

“About three in the afternoon Jesus screamed in a loud voice, “Eli, eli, lama sabachthani?” (or, “‘My God, my God, why have You abandoned me?’”)” (Mt 27:46 mhm)

“And at three in the afternoon Jesus screamed in a loud voice: “Eloi eloi lama sabakhthani?” (which means when translated: “‘My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?’”)” (Mr 15:34 mhm)

God cannot die, so if Jesus would have been God, he clearly would been an imposter, faking that he died at that wooden pole on Golgotha. Not being God, Jesus got wounded by the nails through his hands and feet and by the spear in his body.

When Jesus for a second time called on his Father, he gave up the spirit, which means that he died.

“Now after Jesus again cried out with a loud voice he gave up the pneuma.” (Mt 27:50 mhm)

“Now Jesus screamed in a loud voice and breathed his last.” (Mr 15:37 mhm)

“Then Jesus cried out in a loud voice: “Father, into your hands I entrust my spirit!” And having said this, Jesus expired.” (Lu 23:46 mhm)

We can read in the gospel of John that when Jesus had received the sour wine, he considered his work here on earth finished.

“Therefore, when he had received the vinegar, Jesus said, “It has been accomplished!” And then his head fell and his last breath escaped.” (Joh 19:30 mhm)

Jesus was placed on this earth in a special way for a certain task and now his task had come to an end. When going around Galilee he had tried to show people that he is the way to God (and not to himself, what he would have done if he would be God).

“Jesus said to Thomas: “I am the Way and the Truth and the Life. No one can approach the Father, if not through me.” (Joh 14:6 mhm)

He who wanted to show his Father, Jehovah God, was now dead, not belonging to living anymore, and got put in a grave.

“He placed the body in a new memorium which he had quarried out of the rock. He then rolled a great stone at the opening to the memorium and departed.” (Mt 27:60 mhm)

“These went their way and secured the grave, sealing the stone with the custodial guards.” (Mt 27:66 mhm)

Jesus was put in a grave in a garden near the place where he was impaled. Normaly This tomb Joseph from Arimathea as a rich man had provided and prepared that sepulchre for himself, as was not uncommon among the Jews. In this tomb Luke and John inform us that no man had been laid.  It was a clean, uncontaminated unused or immaculate tomb. In the providence of God, it was foreseen that Jesus would be put between the rich.

“He was assigned a grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death, though he had done no violence, nor was any deceit in his mouth.” (Isa 53:9 NIV)

None of the people who knew Christ and had seen him from close by, could find any wickedness in him. He always had spoken with a soft voice, except when he was cross with the sellers in the temple and when he threw them out of that holy place.
His disciples also were convinced that Jesus had not committed any sin, and that no deceit could be found on his lips, him always telling the truth and defending the poor and those who could not speak.

“Messiah never committed a sin, nor was deceit ever found in his mouth.” (1Pe 2:22 mhm)

The fulfilment of the prophecy that Jesus would make his grave with the rich in his death is the more remarkable, because during his life he associated with the poor, and was himself poor.

That the tombs or sepulchres in Judea were commonly caves, hewn out in the rock in groves, and mountains was a common way of constructing places to bury the dead. Those burial chambers were cut horizontally in the rock beyond the walls of the cities in which they dwelt, or were excavations made in the sides of hills, or sometimes in solid rocks and were sometimes of great extent. The bodies were laid in niches in the walls or on flat slabs. After the first had been laid in the grave, a large heavy stone was rolled in front of the entrance.

Joseph with the help of some of Jesus’ followers laid the dead Jesus in his new family grave, i.e., not yet used. Because Jesus had been condemned as a criminal the law forbade the owner of a grave to use it again, and therefore we know Joseph sacrificed his own tomb to give Jesus an honourable grave.

Had Jesus been buried in the common burial-ground of the malefactors, his resurrection could not have been so distinctly remarked, as the chief priests would never have thought of sealing the stone there, or setting a watch; but now that the body is got into the hands of a friend, they judged it necessary to make use of these precautions, in order, as they said, to prevent imposture; and from this very circumstance the resurrection of Christ had its fullest evidence, and was put beyond the power of successful contradiction.

“62 Now on the morrow, which is the day after the Preparation, the chief priests and the Pharisees were gathered together unto Pilate, 63 saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said while he was yet alive, After three days I rise again. 64 Command therefore that the sepulchre be made sure until the third day, lest haply his disciples come and steal him away, and say unto the people, He is risen from the dead: and the last error will be worse than the first. 65 Pilate said unto them, Ye have a guard: go, make it as sure as ye can. 66 So they went, and made the sepulchre sure, sealing the stone, the guard being with them.” (Mt 27:62-66 ASV)

The sealing of the stone and putting official guards in front of it, was intended to secure the place as much as possible, so that nobody could take the body away to declare afterwards that he would have been risen or taken up to heaven.

1 When the morning had come, all the main Kohanim and zechanim of the people took counsel against  יהושע {Jeshua} to put Him to death:
2 And when they had bound Him, they led Him away, and delivered Him to Pontius Pilate the governor.

3 Then Yahudah, who had betrayed Him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the main Kohanim and zechanim,
4 Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent dahm. And they said, What is that to us? You take care of that.

5 And he cast down the pieces of silver in the Beit HaMikdash, and departed, and went and hanged himself.
6 And the main Kohanim took the silver pieces, and said, It is not right according to Torah to put the coins into the treasury, because it is the price of dahm.
7 And they took counsel, and bought with the coins the Potter’s Field, to bury strangers {Non-Yisraelites.} in. 8 Therefore that field is called, Akel-Dahma, to this day.
9 Then was fulfilled that what was spoken by Zecharyah {Shem Tov reference and Peshitta} the navi, saying, And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of Him that was appraised, whom the children of Yisrael did appraise; 10 And gave the silver for the Potter’s Field, as the Master יהוה  {Jehovah} appointed me.

11 And יהושע {Jeshua}  stood before the governor: and the governor asked Him, saying, Are You Melech of the Yahudim? And יהושע {Jeshua} said to him, You have said it.
12 And when He was accused by the main Kohanim and zechanim { the chief priests and the elders}, He answered nothing.
13 Then said Pilate to Him, Do You hear how many things they witness against You?
14 And He answered him not a word; insomuch that the governor marveled greatly.

15 Now at the time of the moed {festival} the governor used to release to the people a prisoner, whom they desired.
16 And they had then a notable prisoner who was almost meshugas, { Shem Tov reference} called Bar-Abba taken in a case of murder who had been placed in a dungeon.
17 Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate said to them, Whom do you wish that I release to you? Bar-Abba, or gauvh who is called the Moshiach?
18 For he knew that for envy and hatred without a cause {Shem Tov reference} they had delivered Him.

19 When he sat down on the mishpat seat {judgment seat}, his wife sent to him, saying, Have nothing to do with that Tzadik-Man {righteous Man}: for I have suffered many things today in a dream because of Him.
20 But the main Kohanim {the chief priests} and zechanim {elders} persuaded the multitude that they should ask for Bar-Abba, and destroy יהושע {Jeshua}.
21 The governor answered and said to them, Which of the two do you desire that I release to you? They said, Bar-Abba.
22 Pilate said to them, What shall I do then with gauvh who is called the Moshiach? They all said to him, Let Him be hanged.
23 And the governor said, Why, what evil has He done? But they cried out even more, saying, Let Him be hanged on an eytz.

24 When Pilate saw that he could not prevail, but that rather a tumult was made, he took mayim, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the dahm of this tzadik {Righteous One}: you see to it.

25 Then answered all the people, and said, His dahm be on us, and on our children. {From a non-anti Semitic and positive outlook, may YHWH answer this prayer that Messiah’s blood be on all Judah for His loving redemption.}
26 Then he released Bar-Abba to them: and when he had scourged יהושע {Jeshua}, he delivered Him to be impaled.

27 Then the soldiers of the governor the horsemen of the court, {Shem Tov reference} took יהושע {Jeshua} into the common hall, and gathered to to Him the whole band of soldiers.
28 And they stripped Him, and put on Him a scarlet robe.
29 And when they had platted a keter of thorns, they put it upon His head, and a reed in His right hand: and they bowed the knee before Him, and mocked Him, saying, Hail, Melech of the Yahudim!
30 And they spit at Him, and took the reed, and smote Him on the head.
31 And after they had mocked Him, they took the robe off from Him, and put His own clothing on Him, and led Him away to impale Him.

32 And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Shimon by name: they compelled him to bear His execution stake.
33 And when they were come to a place called Golgotha, that is to say, the place of THE SKULL, {Mt. Of Olives}
34 They gave Him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when He had tasted it, He would not drink.
35 And they impaled Him, and parted His garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled what was spoken by the navi, They parted My garments among them, and upon My vesture did they cast lots.
36 And sitting down they watched Him there; 37 And set up over His head His accusation written, THIS IS יהושע {Jeshua} THE MELECH OF THE YAHUDIM. {YHWH – Yahshua Hanotzrei Wemelech HaYahudim}

38 Then were there two thieves impaled with Him, one on  the right hand, and another on the left. {Certainly a picture of YHWH’s two sons, Judah and Efrayim.}
39 And they that passed by reviled Him, shaking their heads, 40 Saying, You that will destroy the Beit HaMikdash, and build it in three days, save Yourself. If You are the Son of tvkt {Elohim} , come down from the execution stake.
41 Likewise also the main Kohanim mocking Him, with the Sophrim and zechanim, said, 42 He saved others; Himself He cannot save. If He is the Melech of Yisrael, let Him now come down from the execution stake, and we will believe Him.
43 He trusted in tvkt {Elohim}; let Him deliver Him now, if He will have Him: for He said, I am the Son of tvkt {Elohim}.
44 The thieves also, who were impaled with Him, reviled Him in the same way.
45 Now from 12 noon there was darkness over all the olam {Shem Tov reference} {land} until 3 in the afternoon.

46 And at about 3 o’clock יהושע {Jeshua} cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli-Yahuweh, Eli-Yahuweh, lemana-shabakthani? That is to say, My El-Yahuweh, My El-Yahuweh, why are You keeping Me? {“Ěli, Ěli, lemah sheḇaqtani?” that is, “My Ěl, My Ěl, why have You forsaken Me?” }
{Going with the Aramaic and not the Greek. In the Aramaic Yahshua is basically asking why the suffering is continuing so long. He is not accusing YHWH of forsaking Him, nor is He confused into thinking that He is being forsaken, since He is YHWH and knows the Father’s plan. The One who stated that He could call for 12 legions of angels to deliver Himself, and the One who said that the Father would never leave Him alone even if all the disciples did, would never claim to be forsaken. Since it cannot mean forsaken, the word shabakthani can also mean keeping me, or preserving me. In this context, this is the obvious meaning. Since Yahshua would never accuse, or believe that YHWH had forsaken Him, Psalm 22 can still be seen as a narrative of the Suffering Servant, but the literal words of Psalm 22:1-2 would never come out of Yahshua’s mouth. In this case, the evidence of the Aramaic meaning is clearly superior to the Greek, and substantiates that Yahshua requested a quickening of His suffering (in its 6th hour), as opposed to an accusation against YHWH of being forsaken.}
{(Mark 15:34).}
47 Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This Man calls for Eli-Yahu. {Because Eli-Yahu-weh sounds like Eli-Yahu.}

48 And immediately one of them ran, and took a sponge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave Him to drink.
49 The rest said, Leave Him alone, let us see whether Eli- Yahu will come to save Him.
50 יהושע  {Jeshua}, when He had cried again with a loud voice, He dismissed His ruach.
51 And, see, the veil of the Beit HaMikdash was rent in two from the top to the bottom; {The veil to the Set-Apart Place, not the most Set-Apart Place.}  and the earth did quake, quake, and the rocks rent; 52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the Yisraelite kidushim that slept arose, 53 And came out of the graves after His resurrection, and went into the kadosh city, and appeared to many.

54 Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching יהושע  {Jeshua}, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of the Almighty.
55 And many women were there looking from far off, who followed יהושע  {Jeshua} from Galil, attending to Him: 56 Among them were Miryam from Magdala, and Miryam the eema of Yaakov and Yoseph, and also the eema of Zavdi’s children.

57 When the evening had come, there came a rich man of Ramathayim, named Yoseph, who also himself was gauvh’s talmid {יהושע  Jeshua’s  taught one}:
58 He went to Pilate, and asked for the body of gauvh. Then Pilate commanded the body to be delivered.
59 And when Yoseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, 60 And laid it in his own new tomb, which he had cut out in the rock: and he rolled a great stone to the door of the tomb, and departed.
61 And there was Miryam from Magdala, and the other Miryam, opposite the tomb.

62 Now the next day, that followed the day of the preparation, the main Kohanim and Prushim came together to Pilate, 63 Saying, Sir, we remember that the deceiver said, while He was yet alive, After three days I will rise again. 64 Command therefore that the tomb be made secure until the third day, lest His talmidim come by night, and steal Him away, and say to the people, He is risen from the dead: so that the last deception shall be worse than the first ones. 65 Pilate said to them, You have a guard: go your way; make it as secure as you can.
66 So they went, and made the tomb secure, sealing the stone, and setting a guard.

    All three of these statements could be the types of “last words”

    proclaimed by any ordinary man about to die by crucifixion. Also, there

    is no exclamation made by Jesus concerning his having been abandoned by

    God in John’s gospel as there is in Matthew’s (see Mt 27.46).

“De Joden antwoordden hem: Wij hebben een wet en naar die wet moet Hij sterven, want Hij heeft Zichzelf Gods Zoon gemaakt.” (Johannes 19:7 NBG51)

“Want alzo lief heeft God de wereld gehad, dat Hij zijn eniggeboren Zoon gegeven heeft, opdat een ieder, die in Hem gelooft, niet verloren ga, maar eeuwig leven hebbe.” (Johannes 3:16 NBG51)

“En zie, een stem uit de hemelen zeide: Deze is mijn Zoon, de geliefde, in wie Ik mijn welbehagen heb.” (Mattheüs 3:17 NBG51)

“17 en Hij, zelf zijn kruis dragende, ging naar de zogenaamde Schedelplaats, in het Hebreeuws genaamd Golgota, 18 waar zij Hem kruisigden en met Hem twee anderen, aan weerszijden een, en Jezus in het midden.
19  En Pilatus liet ook een opschrift schrijven en op het kruis plaatsen; er was geschreven: Jezus, de Nazoreeer, de Koning der Joden.  20 Dit opschrift dan lazen vele der Joden, want de plaats, waar Jezus gekruisigd werd, was dicht bij de stad, en het was geschreven in het Hebreeuws, in het Latijn en in het Grieks. 21 De overpriesters der Joden dan zeiden tot Pilatus: Schrijf niet: De Koning der Joden, maar dat Hij gezegd heeft: Ik ben de Koning der Joden. 22 Pilatus antwoordde: Wat ik geschreven heb, dat heb ik geschreven.” (Johannes 19:17-22 NBG51)

“23 Toen dan de soldaten Jezus gekruisigd hadden, namen zij zijn klederen en maakten daarvan vier delen, voor iedere soldaat een deel, en zijn onderkleed. Dit kleed nu was zonder naad, aan een stuk geweven.  24 Zij zeiden dan tot elkander: Laten wij dit niet scheuren, maar erom loten, voor wie het zijn zal; zodat het schriftwoord vervuld werd: Zij hebben mijn klederen onder elkander verdeeld en over mijn kleding hebben zij het lot geworpen. Dit hebben dan de soldaten gedaan. ” (Johannes 19:23-24 NBG51)

“Zij verdelen mijn klederen onder elkander en werpen het lot over mijn gewaad.” (Psalmen 22:18 NBG51)

“En zij kruisigden Hem en verdeelden zijn klederen door het lot te werpen, wat ieder ervan krijgen zou. {} {}” (Markus 15:24 NBG51)

“28 Hierna zeide Jezus, daar Hij wist, dat alles reeds volbracht was, opdat de Schrift vervuld zou worden: Mij dorst! 29 Er stond een kruik vol zure wijn; zij staken dan een spons, gedrenkt met zure wijn, op een hysopstengel en brachten die aan zijn mond.  30 Toen Jezus dan de zure wijn genomen had, zeide Hij: Het is volbracht! En Hij boog het hoofd en gaf de geest.” (Johannes 19:28-30 NBG51)

“En Jezus riep met luider stem: Vader, in uw handen beveel Ik mijn geest. En toen Hij dat gezegd had, gaf Hij de geest.” (Lukas 23:46 NBG51)

“1  Want daar de wet slechts een schaduw heeft der toekomstige goederen, niet de gestalte dier dingen zelf, is zij nimmer in staat ieder jaar met dezelfde offeranden, die onafgebroken gebracht worden, degenen, die toetreden, te volmaken. 2 Immers, zou anders het offeren daarvan niet opgehouden zijn, doordat degenen, die de dienst verrichten, na eenmaal gereinigd te zijn, generlei besef van zonden meer hadden? 3 Doch door die offeranden werden ieder jaar de zonden in gedachtenis gebracht; 4 want het is onmogelijk, dat het bloed van stieren of bokken zonden zou wegnemen. 5 Daarom zegt Hij bij zijn komst in de wereld: Slachtoffer en offergave hebt Gij niet gewild, maar Gij hebt Mij een lichaam bereid; 6 in brandoffers en zondoffers hebt Gij geen welbehagen gehad.
7  Toen zeide Ik: zie, hier ben Ik (in de boekrol staat van Mij geschreven) om uw wil, o God, te doen. 8 In de aanhef zegt Hij: Slachtoffers en offergaven, brandoffers en zondoffers, hebt Gij niet gewild, noch daarin een welbehagen gehad, hoewel zij naar de wet gebracht worden. 9 [Doch] daarna heeft Hij gezegd: Zie, hier ben Ik om uw wil te doen. Hij heft het eerste op, om het tweede te laten gelden. 10 Krachtens die wil zijn wij eens voor altijd geheiligd door het offer van het lichaam van Jezus Christus. 11 Voorts staat elke priester dagelijks in zijn dienst om telkens dezelfde offers te brengen, die nimmer de zonden kunnen wegnemen; 12 deze echter is, na een offer voor de zonden te hebben gebracht, voor altijd gezeten aan de rechterhand van God, 13 voorts afwachtende, totdat zijn vijanden gemaakt worden tot een voetbank voor zijn voeten. 14 Want door een offerande heeft Hij voor altijd hen volmaakt, die geheiligd worden.” (Hebreeën 10:1-14 NBG51)

“31  De Joden dan, daar het Voorbereiding was en de lichamen niet op sabbat aan het kruis mochten blijven (want de dag van die sabbat was groot) vroegen Pilatus, dat hun benen gebroken en zij weggenomen zouden worden. 32 De soldaten dan kwamen en braken de benen van de eerste en van de andere, die met Hem gekruisigd waren;  33 maar toen zij bij Jezus gekomen waren en zagen, dat Hij reeds gestorven was, braken zij zijn benen niet, 34 maar een van de soldaten stak met een speer in zijn zijde en terstond kwam er bloed en water uit. 35 En die het gezien heeft, heeft ervan getuigd en zijn getuigenis is waarachtig en hij weet, dat hij de waarheid spreekt, opdat ook gij gelooft.” (Johannes 19:31-35 NBG51)

“4 Ik heb U verheerlijkt op de aarde door het werk te voleindigen, dat Gij Mij te doen gegeven hebt. 5 En nu, verheerlijk Gij Mij, Vader, bij Uzelf met de heerlijkheid, die Ik bij U had, eer de wereld was.
6  Ik heb uw naam geopenbaard aan de mensen, die Gij Mij uit de wereld gegeven hebt. Zij behoorden U toe en Gij hebt hen Mij gegeven en zij hebben uw woord bewaard. 7 Nu weten zij, dat al wat Gij Mij gegeven hebt, van U komt, 8 want de woorden, die Gij Mij gegeven hebt, heb Ik hun gegeven en zij hebben ze aangenomen en in waarheid erkend, dat Ik van U ben uitgegaan, en zij hebben geloofd, dat Gij Mij gezonden hebt.” (Johannes 17:4-8 NBG51)

“In een huis zal het gegeten worden; gij zult van het vlees niets uit het huis naar buiten brengen; geen been zult gij ervan breken.” (Exodus 12:46 NBG51)

“12 Men zal niets ervan laten overblijven tot de volgende morgen, en geen been eraan breken; geheel volgens de inzetting van het Pascha zal men het vieren. 13 Maar de man, die rein is, en niet op reis, en nalaat het Pascha te vieren, die zal uitgeroeid worden uit zijn volksgenoten, omdat hij op de daarvoor bepaalde tijd de offergave des HEREN niet heeft gebracht; die man zal zijn zonde dragen.” (Numeri 9:12-13 NBG51)

“17 Roepen zij, dan hoort de HERE, en Hij redt hen uit al hun benauwdheden. 18 De HERE is nabij de gebrokenen van harten Hij verlost de verslagenen van geest. 19 Talrijk zijn de rampen van de rechtvaardige, maar uit die alle redt hem de HERE; 20 Hij behoedt al zijn beenderen, niet een daarvan wordt gebroken.” (Psalmen 34:17-20 NBG51)

“36 Want dit is geschied, opdat het schriftwoord zou vervuld worden: Geen been van Hem zal verbrijzeld worden. 37 En weder zegt een ander schriftwoord: Zij zullen zien op Hem, die zij doorstoken hebben.
38  En daarna vroeg Jozef van Arimatea, een discipel van Jezus, maar in het verborgen uit vrees voor de Joden, aan Pilatus het lichaam van Jezus te mogen wegnemen; en Pilatus stond het toe. Hij kwam dan en nam zijn lichaam weg. ” (Johannes 19:36-38 NBG51)

“Ik zal over het huis van David en over de inwoners van Jeruzalem uitgieten de Geest der genade en der gebeden; zij zullen hem aanschouwen, die zij doorstoken hebben, en over hem een rouwklacht aanheffen als de rouwklacht over een enig kind, ja, zij zullen over hem bitter leed dragen als het leed om een eerstgeborene.” (Zacharia 12:10 NBG51)

“Zie, Hij komt met de wolken en elk oog zal Hem zien, ook zij, die Hem hebben doorstoken; en alle stammen der aarde zullen over Hem weeklagen. Ja, amen.” (Openbaring 1:7 NBG51)

“45 En van het zesde uur af kwam er duisternis over het gehele land tot het negende uur. 46 Omstreeks het negende uur riep Jezus met luider stem, zeggende: Eli, Eli, lama sabachtani? Dat is: Mijn God, mijn God, waarom hebt Gij Mij verlaten? 47 En sommige van de omstanders, dit horende, zeiden: Hij roept Elia. 48 En terstond liep een van hen toe en nam een spons, drenkte die met zure wijn, stak ze op een riet en gaf Hem te drinken. 49 Maar de anderen zeiden: Stil, laat ons zien, of Elia komt om Hem te redden.
50  Jezus riep wederom met luider stem en gaf de geest. 51 En zie, het voorhangsel van de tempel scheurde van boven tot beneden in tweeen, en de aarde beefde, en de rotsen scheurden, 52 en de graven gingen open en vele lichamen der ontslapen heiligen werden opgewekt.  53 En zij gingen uit de graven na zijn opstanding en kwamen in de heilige stad waar zij aan velen verschenen. 54 De hoofdman en zij, die met hem Jezus bewaakten, zagen de aardbeving en wat er plaats had en zij werden zeer bevreesd en zeiden: Waarlijk dit was een Zoon Gods.” (Mattheüs 27:45-54 NBG51)

“38  En daarna vroeg Jozef van Arimatea, een discipel van Jezus, maar in het verborgen uit vrees voor de Joden, aan Pilatus het lichaam van Jezus te mogen wegnemen; en Pilatus stond het toe. Hij kwam dan en nam zijn lichaam weg.  39 En ook kwam Nikodemus, die de eerste maal des nachts tot Hem gekomen was, en hij bracht een mengsel mede van mirre en aloe, ongeveer honderd pond. 40 Zij namen dan het lichaam van Jezus en wikkelden het in linnen windsels met de specerijen, zoals het bij de Joden gebruikelijk is te begraven. 41 En er was ter plaatse, waar Hij gekruisigd was, een hof en in die hof een nieuw graf, waarin nog nooit iemand was bijgezet; 42 daar dan legden zij Jezus neder wegens de Voorbereiding der Joden, omdat het graf dichtbij was.” (Johannes 19:38-42 NBG51)

“De volgende dag, dat is na de Voorbereiding, kwamen de overpriesters en de Farizeeen gezamenlijk tot Pilatus, ” (Mattheüs 27:62 NBG51)

“En toen het reeds avond geworden was, (15-43a) kwam(15-42b) omdat het Voorbereiding, dat is de voorsabbat, was,” (Markus 15:42 NBG51)

“50  En zie, een man, genaamd Jozef, die raadsheer was, een goed en rechtvaardig man 51 (deze had niet ingestemd met hun raad en bedrijf), van Arimatea, een stad der Joden, die het Koninkrijk Gods verwachtte, 52 deze ging naar Pilatus en vroeg hem om het lichaam van Jezus. 53 En na het te hebben afgenomen, wikkelde hij het in linnen en legde Hem in een rotsgraf, waarin nog nooit iemand gelegd was. 54 En het was de dag der voorbereiding en de sabbat brak aan. 55 En de vrouwen, die met Hem uit Galilea gekomen waren, volgden en zij bezagen het graf en hoe zijn lichaam gelegd werd; 56 en toen zij teruggekeerd waren, maakten zij specerijen en mirre gereed. En op de sabbat rustten zij naar het gebod,” (Lukas 23:50-56 NBG51)

“Bedenkt, dat de HERE u de sabbat gegeven heeft; daarom geeft Hij u op de zesde dag brood voor twee dagen. Ieder moet op zijn plaats blijven; niemand mag zijn plaats op de zevende dag verlaten. ” (Exodus 16:29 NBG51)

“Gedenk de sabbatdag, dat gij die heiligt;” (Exodus 20:8 NBG51)

“Onderhoud de sabbatdag, dat gij die heiligt, zoals de HERE, uw God, u geboden heeft.” (Deuteronomium 5:12 NBG51)

    • Passover and Easter (dolunaylaben.wordpress.com)
      +The Origins of Easter
      But while Easter primarily serves as a day of remembrance and rejoicing over the Resurrection of Christ, many of the traditions and symbols of Easter are actually based on pagan traditions and symbols. Since Easter took place during the spring, it competed with pagan celebrations of the arrival of spring and renewal of life. In Europe and Asia, this time was dedicated to a goddess of fertility. While this goddess is believed to have been originally based on the Babylonian goddess Ishtar, she also has many counterparts in other mythologies. Interestingly enough, she is referred to in Saxon mythology as “Oestre” or “Eastre.” Many scholars consider this the origin of the name “Easter.” As for the Easter eggs and rabbits, these symbolize reproduction and were thought to invoke the fertility of spring. Even the painted eggs and egg-hunts originated from pagan ceremonies of various cultures, including the Babylonians.Pesach (Passover): History & Overview

      Pesach, or Passover in English, is one of the best known Jewish holidays, as much for its connection to Jewish redemption and the figure of Moses as for its ties with Christian history (the Last Supper was apparently a Passover seder).

      Passover begins on the 15th day of the Jewish month of Nissan. It is the first of the three major festivals with both historical and agricultural significance (the other two are Shavu’ot and Sukkot). Agriculturally, it represents the beginning of the harvest season in Israel. The primary observances of Passover are related to the Exodus from Egypt after 400 years of slavery as told in the biblical Book of Exodus from chapters 1 to 15.

      Passover lasts for seven days (eight days outside of Israel). The first and last days of the holiday (first two and last two outside of Israel) are days on which no work is permitted. Work is permitted on the intermediate days, referred to as Chol Ha-Mo’ed.
