“The Jews answered him, We have a law, and according to [our] law he ought to die, because he made himself Son of God.” (John 19:7 Darby)

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only-begotten Son, that whosoever believes on him may not perish, but have life eternal.” (John 3:16 Darby)

“and behold, a voice out of the heavens saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I have found my delight.” (Matthew 3:17 Darby)

“17 And he went out, bearing his cross, to the place called [place] of a skull, which is called in Hebrew, Golgotha; 18 where they crucified him, and with him two others, [one] on this side, and [one] on that, and Jesus in the middle.
19  And Pilate wrote a title also and put it on the cross. But there was written: Jesus the Nazaraean, the King of the Jews. 20 This title therefore many of the Jews read, for the place of the city where Jesus was crucified was near; and it was written in Hebrew, Greek, Latin. 21 The chief priests of the Jews therefore said to Pilate, Do not write, The king of the Jews, but that *he* said, I am king of the Jews. 22 Pilate answered, What I have written, I have written.” (John 19:17-22 Darby)

“23 The soldiers therefore, when they had crucified Jesus, took his clothes, and made four parts, to each soldier a part, and the body-coat; but the body-coat was seamless, woven through the whole from the top. 24 They said therefore to one another, Let us not rend it, but let us cast lots for it, whose it shall be; that the scripture might be fulfilled which says, They parted my garments among themselves, and on my vesture they cast lots. The soldiers therefore did these things.” (John 19:23-24 Darby)

“They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.” (Psalms 22:18 Darby)

“And having crucified him, they part his clothes amongst [themselves], casting lots on them, what each one should take.” (Mark 15:24 Darby)

“28 After this, Jesus, knowing that all things were now finished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, says, I thirst. 29 There was a vessel therefore there full of vinegar, and having filled a sponge with vinegar, and putting hyssop round it, they put it up to his mouth. 30 When therefore Jesus had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished; and having bowed his head, he delivered up his spirit.” (John 19:28-30 Darby)

“And Jesus, having cried with a loud voice, said, Father, into thy hands I commit my spirit. And having said this, he expired.” (Luke 23:46 Darby)

“1  For the law, having a shadow of the coming good things, not the image itself of the things, can never, by the same sacrifices which they offer continually yearly, perfect those who approach. 2 Since, would they not indeed have ceased being offered, on account of the worshippers once purged having no longer any conscience of sins? 3 But in these [there is] a calling to mind of sins yearly. 4 For blood of bulls and goats [is] incapable of taking away sins. 5 Wherefore coming into the world he says, Sacrifice and offering thou willedst not; but thou hast prepared me a body. 6 Thou tookest no pleasure in burnt-offerings and sacrifices for sin.
7  Then I said, Lo, I come (in [the] roll of the book it is written of me) to do, O God, thy will. 8 Above, saying Sacrifices and offerings and burnt-offerings and sacrifices for sin thou willedst not, neither tookest pleasure in (which are offered according to the law); 9 then he said, Lo, I come to do thy will. He takes away the first that he may establish the second; 10 by which will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. 11 And every priest stands daily ministering, and offering often the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. 12 But *he*, having offered one sacrifice for sins, sat down in perpetuity at [the] right hand of God, 13 waiting from henceforth until his enemies be set [for the] footstool of his feet. 14 For by one offering he has perfected in perpetuity the sanctified.” (Hebrews 10:1-14 Darby)

“31  The Jews therefore, that the bodies might not remain on the cross on the sabbath, for it was [the] preparation, (for the day of that sabbath was a great [day],)demanded of Pilate that their legs might be broken and they taken away. 32 The soldiers therefore came and broke the legs of the first and of the other that had been crucified with him; 33 but coming to Jesus, when they saw that he was already dead they did not break his legs, 34 but one of the soldiers pierced his side with a spear, and immediately there came out blood and water. 35 And he who saw it bears witness, and his witness is true, and he knows that he says true that ye also may believe.” (John 19:31-35 Darby)

“4 I have glorified *thee* on the earth, I have completed the work which thou gavest me that I should do it; 5 and now glorify *me*, *thou* Father, along with thyself, with the glory which I had along with thee before the world was.
6  I have manifested thy name to the men whom thou gavest me out of the world. They were thine, and thou gavest them me, and they have kept thy word. 7 Now they have known that all things that thou hast given me are of thee; 8 for the words which thou hast given me I have given them, and they have received [them], and have known truly that I came out from thee, and have believed that thou sentest me.” (John 17:4-8 Darby)

“In one house shall it be eaten; thou shalt not carry forth any of the flesh abroad out of the house; neither shall ye break a bone thereof.” (Exodus 12:46 Darby)

“12 They shall leave none of it until the morning, nor break a bone thereof: according to every ordinance of the passover shall they hold it. 13 But a man that is clean, and is not on a journey, and forbeareth to hold the passover, that soul shall be cut off from among his peoples; because he presented not the offering of Jehovah at its set time: that man shall bear his sin.” (Numbers 9:12-13 Darby)

“17 [The righteous] cry, and Jehovah heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles. 18 Jehovah is nigh to those that are of a broken heart, and saveth them that are of a contrite spirit. 19 Many are the adversities of the righteous, but Jehovah delivereth him out of them all: 20 He keepeth all his bones; not one of them is broken.” (Psalms 34:17-20 Darby)

“36 For these things took place that the scripture might be fulfilled, Not a bone of him shall be broken. 37 And again another scripture says, They shall look on him whom they pierced.
38  And after these things Joseph of Arimathaea, who was a disciple of Jesus, but secretly through fear of the Jews, demanded of Pilate that he might take the body of Jesus: and Pilate allowed it. He came therefore and took away the body of Jesus.” (John 19:36-38 Darby)

“And I will pour upon the house of David and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem the spirit of grace and of supplications; and they shall look on me whom they pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for an only [son], and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for [his] firstborn.” (Zechariah 12:10 Darby)

“Behold, he comes with the clouds, and every eye shall see him, and they which have pierced him, and all the tribes of the land shall wail because of him. Yea. Amen.” (Revelation 1:7 Darby)

“45 Now from [the] sixth hour there was darkness over the whole land until [the] ninth hour; 46 but about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? 47 And some of those who stood there, when they heard [it], said, This [man] calls for Elias. 48 And immediately one of them running and getting a sponge, having filled [it] with vinegar and fixed [it] on a reed, gave him to drink. 49 But the rest said, Let be; let us see if Elias comes to save him.
50  And Jesus, having again cried with a loud voice, gave up the ghost. 51 And lo, the veil of the temple was rent in two from the top to the bottom, and the earth was shaken, and the rocks were rent, 52 and the tombs were opened; and many bodies of the saints fallen asleep arose, 53 and going out of the tombs after his arising, entered into the holy city and appeared unto many. 54 But the centurion, and they who were with him on guard over Jesus, seeing the earthquake and the things that took place, feared greatly, saying, Truly this [man] was Son of God.” (Matthew 27:45-54 Darby)

“38  And after these things Joseph of Arimathaea, who was a disciple of Jesus, but secretly through fear of the Jews, demanded of Pilate that he might take the body of Jesus: and Pilate allowed it. He came therefore and took away the body of Jesus. 39 And Nicodemus also, who at first came to Jesus by night, came, bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pounds [weight]. 40 They took therefore the body of Jesus and bound it up in linen with the spices, as it is the custom with the Jews to prepare for burial. 41 But there was in the place where he had been crucified a garden, and in the garden a new tomb in which no one had ever been laid. 42 There therefore, on account of the preparation of the Jews, because the tomb was near, they laid Jesus.” (John 19:38-42 Darby)

“Now on the morrow, which is after the preparation, the chief priests and the Pharisees came together to Pilate,” (Matthew 27:62 Darby)

“And when it was already evening, since it was [the] preparation, that is, [the day] before a sabbath,” (Mark 15:42 Darby)

“50  And behold, a man named Joseph, who was a councillor, a good man and a just 51 (this [man] had not assented to their counsel and deed), of Arimathaea, a city of the Jews, who also waited, [himself also,] for the kingdom of God 52  — he having gone to Pilate begged the body of Jesus; 53 and having taken it down, wrapped it in fine linen and placed him in a tomb hewn in the rock, where no one had ever been laid. 54 And it was preparation day, and [the] sabbath twilight was coming on. 55 And women, who had come along with him out of Galilee, having followed, saw the sepulchre and how his body was placed. 56 And having returned they prepared aromatic spices and ointments, and remained quiet on the sabbath, according to the commandment.” (Luke 23:50-56 Darby)

“See, for Jehovah hath given you the sabbath; therefore he giveth you on the sixth day the bread for two days. Abide every man in his place: let no man go from his place on the seventh day.” (Exodus 16:29 Darby)

“Remember the sabbath day to hallow it.” (Exodus 20:8 Darby)

“Keep the sabbath day to hallow it, as Jehovah thy God hath commanded thee.” (Deuteronomy 5:12 Darby)

  • Jesus Christ, Our Passover (fredswolfe.wordpress.com)
    Jesus was dead in the grave with no consciousness for 3 full days and 3 full nights = 72 hours. There is no way in Hell to fit 3 full days and 3 full nights between Sunset Friday and Sunrise Sunday. Therefore, there is no such thing as Good Friday! Jesus Christ, our Passover Lamb,was sacrificed for us and was buried on a Wednesday around sunset beginning the 1st night (Thursday). At dawn Thursday began the first day. At sunset Thurs. began the 2nd night of Friday, then Friday day; thenFri at sunset began the 3rd night, Saturday; then Saturday at sunset completed the 3 days and 3 nights. Sunset Sat. began Sunday night:Jn 20:1 The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre.KJV
  • Passover: A Time To Remember (jacksonandrew.com)
    I am thankful that today, we can celebrate this feast without the sacrifice of a life for our sins, as Christ, our Passover Lamb, has once and for all, become the substitute… and with Him, God is well pleased. Don’t forget to remember or you are doomed to return to what once enslaved you.
  • Dave Hunt : Scripture reveals the answer Of .Crucifixion Week (ioan17.wordpress.com)
    the rabbis had determined not to arrest Jesus during Passover,
    +The fourteenth of Nisan began at sunset Wednesday evening. That night, Jesus and His disciples had the “last supper” in the upper room where they were preparing to eat the Passover the following night.
    +Shortly before noon, Jesus, scourged and beaten, was led out of the city to “the place of the skull.” By noon, the One whom Jerusalem, in fulfillment of prophecy, had hailed as its long-awaited Messiah, was hanging naked on the center cross between two thieves.
  • G-dfearers Participation In Shabbat, And Pesach According To Toby Janicki (paradoxparables.justparadox.com)
    Gentile believers have been brought near to the commonwealth of Israel. Although this does not make Gentile Christians into Jews, they share in the spiritual heritage of the nation of Israel.

    “Our Master Yeshua chose the wine and the matzah of a Passover Seder to represent his body and blood. More than just learning about and celebrating the concept of freedom from oppression and exile, for disciples of Messiah, the seder celebrates Yeshua’s atoning death and resurrection while remaining firmly grounded and centered on God’s deliverance of the Jewish people from Egypt.” Toby Janicki
    +
    “Although the imagery to “celebrate the festival” is clearly metaphorical, it could really only be understood by readers who were in fact literally celebrating Passover and the Festival of Unleavened Bread, complete with some level of abstention from leaven.” Toby Janicki

  • Happy Passover! (jewishvoice.wordpress.com)
    we as people of faith can celebrate being saved from certain death when we apply the blood of Yeshua our Messiah to our lives and repent of those sins that kept us in our own personal bondage.To help you celebrate this wonderful occasion, we have put together some Passover resources so that you can be educated and inspired by the beauty of this holy feast.

For the Will of Him who is greater than Jesus

Christ in Gethsemane. The Angel – 1850, Alexander Andreyevich Ivanov (1806–1858)

“14 When the hour came, he took his place at the table, and the apostles with him. 15 He said to them, “I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer; 16 for I tell you, I will not eat it until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God.” 17 Then he took a cup, and after giving thanks he said, “Take this and divide it among yourselves; 18 for I tell you that from now on I will not drink of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes.” 19 Then he took a loaf of bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” 20 And he did the same with the cup after supper, saying, “This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood.” (Luke 22:14-20 NRSV)

“6  Now these things occurred as examples for us, so that we might not desire evil as they did. 7 Do not become idolaters as some of them did; as it is written, “The people sat down to eat and drink, and they rose up to play.” 8 We must not indulge in sexual immorality as some of them did, and twenty-three thousand fell in a single day. 9 We must not put Christ to the test, as some of them did, and were destroyed by serpents. 10 And do not complain as some of them did, and were destroyed by the destroyer. 11 These things happened to them to serve as an example, and they were written down to instruct us, on whom the ends of the ages have come.” (1 Corinthians 10:6-11 NRSV)

“31 The days are surely coming, says the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah. 32 It will not be like the covenant that I made with their ancestors when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt—a covenant that they broke, though I was their husband, says the LORD. 33 But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the LORD: I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 34 No longer shall they teach one another, or say to each other, “Know the LORD,” for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest, says the LORD; for I will forgive their iniquity, and remember their sin no more. 35  Thus says the LORD, who gives the sun for light by day and the fixed order of the moon and the stars for light by night, who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar— the LORD of hosts is his name: 36 If this fixed order were ever to cease from my presence, says the LORD, then also the offspring of Israel would cease to be a nation before me forever.” (Jeremiah 31:31-36 NRSV)

“15  For this reason he is the mediator of a new covenant, so that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance, because a death has occurred that redeems them from the transgressions under the first covenant. 16 Where a will is involved, the death of the one who made it must be established. 17 For a will takes effect only at death, since it is not in force as long as the one who made it is alive. 18 Hence not even the first covenant was inaugurated without blood. 19 For when every commandment had been told to all the people by Moses in accordance with the law, he took the blood of calves and goats, with water and scarlet wool and hyssop, and sprinkled both the scroll itself and all the people, 20 saying, “This is the blood of the covenant that God has ordained for you.” 21 And in the same way he sprinkled with the blood both the tent and all the vessels used in worship. 22 Indeed, under the law almost everything is purified with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins. 23  Thus it was necessary for the sketches of the heavenly things to be purified with these rites, but the heavenly things themselves need better sacrifices than these. 24 For Christ did not enter a sanctuary made by human hands, a mere copy of the true one, but he entered into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God on our behalf. 25 Nor was it to offer himself again and again, as the high priest enters the Holy Place year after year with blood that is not his own; 26 for then he would have had to suffer again and again since the foundation of the world. But as it is, he has appeared once for all at the end of the age to remove sin by the sacrifice of himself. 27 And just as it is appointed for mortals to die once, and after that the judgment, 28 so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin, but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.” (Hebrews 9:15-28 NRSV)

“1  Since the law has only a shadow of the good things to come and not the true form of these realities, it can never, by the same sacrifices that are continually offered year after year, make perfect those who approach. 2 Otherwise, would they not have ceased being offered, since the worshipers, cleansed once for all, would no longer have any consciousness of sin? 3 But in these sacrifices there is a reminder of sin year after year. 4 For it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins. 5 Consequently, when Christ came into the world, he said, “Sacrifices and offerings you have not desired, but a body you have prepared for me; 6 in burnt offerings and sin offerings you have taken no pleasure. 7  Then I said, ‘See, God, I have come to do your will, O God’ (in the scroll of the book it is written of me).” 8 When he said above, “You have neither desired nor taken pleasure in sacrifices and offerings and burnt offerings and sin offerings” (these are offered according to the law), 9 then he added, “See, I have come to do your will.” He abolishes the first in order to establish the second. 10 And it is by God’s will that we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.” (Hebrews 10:1-10 NRSV)

“39  He came out and went, as was his custom, to the Mount of Olives; and the disciples followed him. 40 When he reached the place, he said to them, “Pray that you may not come into the time of trial.” 41 Then he withdrew from them about a stone’s throw, knelt down, and prayed, 42 “Father, if you are willing, remove this cup from me; yet, not my will but yours be done.” 43 Then an angel from heaven appeared to him and gave him strength. 44 In his anguish he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat became like great drops of blood falling down on the ground.” (Luke 22:39-44 NRSV)

“34 And said to them, “I am deeply grieved, even to death; remain here, and keep awake.” 35 And going a little farther, he threw himself on the ground and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass from him. 36 He said, “Abba, Father, for you all things are possible; remove this cup from me; yet, not what I want, but what you want.”” (Mark 14:34-36 NRSV)

“29 Jesus answered them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in him whom he has sent.” 30 So they said to him, “What sign are you going to give us then, so that we may see it and believe you? What work are you performing? 31 Our ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness; as it is written, ‘He gave them bread from heaven to eat.’” 32 Then Jesus said to them, “Very truly, I tell you, it was not Moses who gave you the bread from heaven, but it is my Father who gives you the true bread from heaven. 33 For the bread of God is that which comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.” 34 They said to him, “Sir, give us this bread always.” 35 Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. 36 But I said to you that you have seen me and yet do not believe. 37 Everything that the Father gives me will come to me, and anyone who comes to me I will never drive away; 38 for I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of him who sent me. 39 And this is the will of him who sent me, that I should lose nothing of all that he has given me, but raise it up on the last day. 40 This is indeed the will of my Father, that all who see the Son and believe in him may have eternal life; and I will raise them up on the last day.”” (John 6:29-40 NRSV)

“7 In the days of his flesh, Jesus offered up prayers and supplications, with loud cries and tears, to the one who was able to save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission. 8 Although he was a Son, he learned obedience through what he suffered; 9 and having been made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him, 10  having been designated by God a high priest according to the order of Melchizedek.” (Hebrews 5:7-10 NRSV)

“8 he humbled himself and became obedient to the point of death— even death on a cross. 9 Therefore God also highly exalted him and gave him the name that is above every name, 10 so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bend, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:8-11 NRSV)

“25 “Very truly, I tell you, the hour is coming, and is now here, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live. 26 For just as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son also to have life in himself; 27 and he has given him authority to execute judgment, because he is the Son of Man. 28 Do not be astonished at this; for the hour is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice 29 and will come out—those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation. 30 “I can do nothing on my own. As I hear, I judge; and my judgment is just, because I seek to do not my own will but the will of him who sent me. 31  “If I testify about myself, my testimony is not true. 32 There is another who testifies on my behalf, and I know that his testimony to me is true.” (John 5:25-32 NRSV)

“28  You heard me say to you, ‘I am going away, and I am coming to you.’ If you loved me, you would rejoice that I am going to the Father, because the Father is greater than I. 29 And now I have told you this before it occurs, so that when it does occur, you may believe. 30 I will no longer talk much with you, for the ruler of this world is coming. He has no power over me; 31 but I do as the Father has commanded me, so that the world may know that I love the Father. Rise, let us be on our way.” (John 14:28-31 NRSV)

“1  “I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinegrower. 2 He removes every branch in me that bears no fruit. Every branch that bears fruit he prunes to make it bear more fruit. 3 You have already been cleansed by the word that I have spoken to you. 4 Abide in me as I abide in you. Just as the branch cannot bear fruit by itself unless it abides in the vine, neither can you unless you abide in me. 5 I am the vine, you are the branches. Those who abide in me and I in them bear much fruit, because apart from me you can do nothing.” (John 15:1-5 NRSV)

“9  As the Father has loved me, so I have loved you; abide in my love. 10 If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. 11 I have said these things to you so that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be complete. 12 “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. 13 No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. 14 You are my friends if you do what I command you. 15 I do not call you servants any longer, because the servant does not know what the master is doing; but I have called you friends, because I have made known to you everything that I have heard from my Father. 16 You did not choose me but I chose you. And I appointed you to go and bear fruit, fruit that will last, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask him in my name.” (John 15:9-16 NRSV)

“45 When he got up from prayer, he came to the disciples and found them sleeping because of grief, 46 and he said to them, “Why are you sleeping? Get up and pray that you may not come into the time of trial.” 47  While he was still speaking, suddenly a crowd came, and the one called Judas, one of the twelve, was leading them. He approached Jesus to kiss him; 48 but Jesus said to him, “Judas, is it with a kiss that you are betraying the Son of Man?” 49 When those who were around him saw what was coming, they asked, “Lord, should we strike with the sword?” 50 Then one of them struck the slave of the high priest and cut off his right ear. 51 But Jesus said, “No more of this!” And he touched his ear and healed him. 52 Then Jesus said to the chief priests, the officers of the temple police, and the elders who had come for him, “Have you come out with swords and clubs as if I were a bandit? 53 When I was with you day after day in the temple, you did not lay hands on me. But this is your hour, and the power of darkness!”” (Luke 22:45-53 NRSV)

“I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will strike your head, and you will strike his heel.”” (Genesis 3:15 NRSV)

“13 The God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, the God of our ancestors has glorified his servant Jesus, whom you handed over and rejected in the presence of Pilate, though he had decided to release him. 14 But you rejected the Holy and Righteous One and asked to have a murderer given to you, 15 and you killed the Author of life, whom God raised from the dead. To this we are witnesses. 16 And by faith in his name, his name itself has made this man strong, whom you see and know; and the faith that is through Jesus has given him this perfect health in the presence of all of you. 17 “And now, friends, I know that you acted in ignorance, as did also your rulers. 18 In this way God fulfilled what he had foretold through all the prophets, that his Messiah would suffer.” (Acts 3:13-18 NRSV)

“29 But Peter and the apostles answered, “We must obey God rather than any human authority. 30 The God of our ancestors raised up Jesus, whom you had killed by hanging him on a tree. 31 God exalted him at his right hand as Leader and Savior that he might give repentance to Israel and forgiveness of sins. 32 And we are witnesses to these things, and so is the Holy Spirit whom God has given to those who obey him.”” (Acts 5:29-32 NRSV)

“3 how can we escape if we neglect so great a salvation? It was declared at first through the Lord, and it was attested to us by those who heard him, 4 while God added his testimony by signs and wonders and various miracles, and by gifts of the Holy Spirit, distributed according to his will. 5  Now God did not subject the coming world, about which we are speaking, to angels. 6 But someone has testified somewhere, “What are human beings that you are mindful of them, or mortals, that you care for them? 7 You have made them for a little while lower than the angels; you have crowned them with glory and honor, 8 subjecting all things under their feet.” Now in subjecting all things to them, God left nothing outside their control. As it is, we do not yet see everything in subjection to them, 9 but we do see Jesus, who for a little while was made lower than the angels, now crowned with glory and honor because of the suffering of death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone. 10  It was fitting that God, for whom and through whom all things exist, in bringing many children to glory, should make the pioneer of their salvation perfect through sufferings. 11 For the one who sanctifies and those who are sanctified all have one Father. For this reason Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers and sisters, 12 saying, “I will proclaim your name to my brothers and sisters, in the midst of the congregation I will praise you.” 13 And again, “I will put my trust in him.” And again, “Here am I and the children whom God has given me.”” (Hebrews 2:3-13 NRSV)

  • Day 88: 2 Samuel 4-7; The Ark and The Covenant (orcministries.wordpress.com)
    Well, if you have been reading the stories of David over the past week or so you have seen that all that David does, he does following what God tells him to.  Even today, as the now rightful king of all of Israel, David still inquires of God as to whether he should attack the Philistines.
    +
    God establishes a covenant with Adam, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Moses… each time we hear the covenant it evolves a little bit.  With Adam, we hear that humanity will not be left in sin but one will come to save us from our sins.
    +
    We have come now to the “Davidic Covenant.”  This is the latest building and addition to the covenant.  We read here that God’s covenant with David is an everlasting covenant and that David’s house will rule over Israel.  We also find out here the family line of the coming savior.  First we found out he would come as a human through Adam.  We then learned that He would come from the people of Israel.  Now we learn that the coming “Messiah” would be “of the house and line of David.”  We also learn that this is how God will keep his covenant with David, placing who we now know as Jesus as King and Lord of this world and of all things!

“14 L’heure étant venue, il se mit à table, et les apôtres avec lui. 15 Il leur dit : J’ai désiré vivement manger cette Pâque avec vous, avant de souffrir ; 16 car, je vous le dis, je ne la mangerai plus, jusqu’à ce qu’elle soit accomplie dans le royaume de Dieu. 17 Et, ayant pris une coupe et rendu grâces, il dit : Prenez cette coupe, et distribuez-la entre vous ; 18 car, je vous le dis, je ne boirai plus désormais du fruit de la vigne, jusqu’à ce que le royaume de Dieu soit venu. 19 Ensuite il prit du pain ; et, après avoir rendu grâces, il le rompit, et le leur donna, en disant : Ceci est mon corps, qui est donné pour vous ; faites ceci en mémoire de moi. 20 Il prit de même la coupe, après le souper, et la leur donna, en disant : Cette coupe est la nouvelle alliance en mon sang, qui est répandu pour vous.” (Luc 22:14-20 LSG)

“6  Or, ces choses sont arrivées pour nous servir d’exemples, afin que nous n’ayons pas de mauvais désirs, comme ils en ont eu. 7 Ne devenez point idolâtres, comme quelques-uns d’eux, selon qu’il est écrit : Le peuple s’assit pour manger et pour boire ; puis ils se levèrent pour se divertir. 8 Ne nous livrons point à l’impudicité, comme quelques-uns d’eux s’y livrèrent, de sorte qu’il en tomba vingt-trois mille en un seul jour. 9 Ne tentons point le Seigneur, comme le tentèrent quelques-uns d’eux, qui périrent par les serpents. 10 Ne murmurez point, comme murmurèrent quelques-uns d’eux, qui périrent par l’exterminateur. 11 Ces choses leur sont arrivées pour servir d’exemples, et elles ont été écrites pour notre instruction, à nous qui sommes parvenus à la fin des siècles.” (1 Corinthiens 10:6-11 LSG)

“31 Voici, les jours viennent, dit l’Eternel, Où je ferai avec la maison d’Israël et la maison de Juda Une alliance nouvelle, 32 Non comme l’alliance que je traitai avec leurs pères, Le jour où je les saisis par la main Pour les faire sortir du pays d’Egypte, Alliance qu’ils ont violée, Quoique je fusse leur maître, dit l’Eternel. 33 Mais voici l’alliance que je ferai avec la maison d’Israël, Après ces jours-là, dit l’Eternel : Je mettrai ma loi au dedans d’eux, Je l’écrirai dans leur cœur ; Et je serai leur Dieu, Et ils seront mon peuple. 34 Celui-ci n’enseignera plus son prochain, Ni celui-là son frère, en disant : Connaissez l’Eternel ! Car tous me connaîtront, Depuis le plus petit jusqu’au plus grand, dit l’Eternel ; Car je pardonnerai leur iniquité, Et je ne me souviendrai plus de leur péché.
35  Ainsi parle l’Eternel, qui a fait le soleil pour éclairer le jour, Qui a destiné la lune et les étoiles à éclairer la nuit, Qui soulève la mer et fait mugir ses flots, Lui dont le nom est l’Eternel des armées: 36 Si ces lois viennent à cesser devant moi, dit l’Eternel, La race d’Israël aussi cessera pour toujours d’être une nation devant moi.” (Jérémie 31:31-36 LSG)

“15  Et c’est pour cela qu’il est le médiateur d’une nouvelle alliance, afin que, la mort étant intervenue pour le rachat des transgressions commises sous la première alliance, ceux qui ont été appelés reçoivent l’héritage éternel qui leur a été promis. 16 Car là où il y a un testament, il est nécessaire que la mort du testateur soit constatée. 17 Un testament, en effet, n’est valable qu’en cas de mort, puisqu’il n’a aucune force tant que le testateur vit. 18 Voilà pourquoi c’est avec du sang que même la première alliance fut inaugurée. 19 Moïse, après avoir prononcé devant tout le peuple tous les commandements de la loi, prit le sang des veaux et des boucs, avec de l’eau, de la laine écarlate, et de l’hysope ; et il fit l’aspersion sur le livre lui-même et sur tout le peuple, 20 (9-19) en disant : (9-20) Ceci est le sang de l’alliance que Dieu a ordonnée pour vous. 21 Il fit pareillement l’aspersion avec le sang sur le tabernacle et sur tous les ustensiles du culte. 22 Et presque tout, d’après la loi, est purifié avec du sang, et sans effusion de sang il n’y a pas de pardon.
23  Il était donc nécessaire, puisque les images des choses qui sont dans les cieux devaient être purifiées de cette manière, que les choses célestes elles-mêmes le fussent par des sacrifices plus excellents que ceux-là. 24 Car Christ n’est pas entré dans un sanctuaire fait de main d’homme, en imitation du véritable, mais il est entré dans le ciel même, afin de comparaître maintenant pour nous devant la face de Dieu. 25 Et ce n’est pas pour s’offrir lui-même plusieurs fois qu’il y est entré, comme le souverain sacrificateur entre chaque année dans le sanctuaire avec du sang étranger ; 26 autrement, il aurait fallu qu’il eût souffert plusieurs fois depuis la création du monde, tandis que maintenant, à la fin des siècles, il a paru une seule fois pour abolir le péché par son sacrifice. 27 Et comme il est réservé aux hommes de mourir une seule fois, après quoi vient le jugement, 28 de même Christ, qui s’est offert une seule fois pour porter les péchés de plusieurs, apparaîtra sans péché une seconde fois à ceux qui l’attendent pour leur salut.” (Hébreux 9:15-28 LSG)

“1  En effet, la loi, qui possède une ombre des biens à venir, et non l’exacte représentation des choses, ne peut jamais, par les mêmes sacrifices qu’on offre perpétuellement chaque année, amener les assistants à la perfection. 2 Autrement, n’aurait-on pas cessé de les offrir, parce que ceux qui rendent ce culte, étant une fois purifiés, n’auraient plus eu aucune conscience de leurs péchés ? 3 Mais le souvenir des péchés est renouvelé chaque année par ces sacrifices ; 4 car il est impossible que le sang des taureaux et des boucs ôte les péchés. 5 C’est pourquoi Christ, entrant dans le monde, dit : Tu n’as voulu ni sacrifice ni offrande, Mais tu m’as formé un corps ; 6 Tu n’as agréé ni holocaustes ni sacrifices pour le péché.
7  Alors j’ai dit : Voici, je viens Dans le rouleau du livre il est question de moi Pour faire, ô Dieu, ta volonté. 8 Après avoir dit d’abord : Tu n’as voulu et tu n’as agréé ni sacrifices ni offrandes, Ni holocaustes ni sacrifices pour le péché ce qu’on offre selon la loi, 9 il dit ensuite : Voici, je viens Pour faire ta volonté. Il abolit ainsi la première chose pour établir la seconde. 10 C’est en vertu de cette volonté que nous sommes sanctifiés, par l’offrande du corps de Jésus-Christ, une fois pour toutes.” (Hébreux 10:1-10 LSG)

“39  Après être sorti, il alla, selon sa coutume, à la montagne des oliviers. Ses disciples le suivirent. 40 Lorsqu’il fut arrivé dans ce lieu, il leur dit : Priez, afin que vous ne tombiez pas en tentation. 41 Puis il s’éloigna d’eux à la distance d’environ un jet de pierre, et, s’étant mis à genoux, il pria, 42 disant : Père, si tu voulais éloigner de moi cette coupe ! Toutefois, que ma volonté ne se fasse pas, mais la tienne. 43 Alors un ange lui apparut du ciel, pour le fortifier. 44 Etant en agonie, il priait plus instamment, et sa sueur devint comme des grumeaux de sang, qui tombaient à terre.” (Luc 22:39-44 LSG)

“34 Il leur dit : Mon âme est triste jusqu’à la mort ; restez ici, et veillez. 35 Puis, ayant fait quelques pas en avant, il se jeta contre terre, et pria que, s’il était possible, cette heure s’éloignât de lui. 36 Il disait : Abba, Père, toutes choses te sont possibles, éloigne de moi cette coupe ! Toutefois, non pas ce que je veux, mais ce que tu veux.” (Marc 14:34-36 LSG)

“29 Jésus leur répondit: L’œuvre de Dieu, c’est que vous croyiez en celui qu’il a envoyé. 30 Quel miracle fais-tu donc, lui dirent-ils, afin que nous le voyions, et que nous croyions en toi ? Que fais-tu ? 31 Nos pères ont mangé la manne dans le désert, selon ce qui est écrit : Il leur donna le pain du ciel à manger. 32 Jésus leur dit : En vérité, en vérité, je vous le dis, Moïse ne vous a pas donné le pain du ciel, mais mon Père vous donne le vrai pain du ciel ; 33 car le pain de Dieu, c’est celui qui descend du ciel et qui donne la vie au monde. 34 Ils lui dirent : Seigneur, donne-nous toujours ce pain. 35 Jésus leur dit : Je suis le pain de vie. Celui qui vient à moi n’aura jamais faim, et celui qui croit en moi n’aura jamais soif. 36 Mais, je vous l’ai dit, vous m’avez vu, et vous ne croyez point. 37 Tous ceux que le Père me donne viendront à moi, et je ne mettrai pas dehors celui qui vient à moi ; 38 car je suis descendu du ciel pour faire, non ma volonté, mais la volonté de celui qui m’a envoyé. 39 Or, la volonté de celui qui m’a envoyé, c’est que je ne perde rien de tout ce qu’il m’a donné, mais que je le ressuscite au dernier jour. 40 La volonté de mon Père, c’est que quiconque voit le Fils et croit en lui ait la vie éternelle ; et je le ressusciterai au dernier jour.” (Jean 6:29-40 LSG)

“7 C’est lui qui, dans les jours de sa chair, ayant présenté avec de grands cris et avec larmes des prières et des supplications à celui qui pouvait le sauver de la mort, et ayant été exaucé à cause de sa piété, 8 a appris, bien qu’il fût Fils, l’obéissance par les choses qu’il a souffertes, 9 et qui, après avoir été élevé à la perfection, est devenu pour tous ceux qui lui obéissent l’auteur d’un salut éternel, 10  Dieu l’ayant déclaré souverain sacrificateur selon l’ordre de Melchisédek.” (Hébreux 5:7-10 LSG)

“8 (2-7) et ayant paru comme un simple homme, (2-8) il s’est humilié lui-même, se rendant obéissant jusqu’à la mort, même jusqu’à la mort de la croix. 9 C’est pourquoi aussi Dieu l’a souverainement élevé, et lui a donné le nom qui est au-dessus de tout nom, 10 afin qu’au nom de Jésus tout genou fléchisse dans les cieux, sur la terre et sous la terre, 11 et que toute langue confesse que Jésus-Christ est Seigneur, à la gloire de Dieu le Père.” (Philippiens 2:8-11 LSG)

“25 En vérité, en vérité, je vous le dis, l’heure vient, et elle est déjà venue, où les morts entendront la voix du Fils de Dieu ; et ceux qui l’auront entendue vivront. 26 Car, comme le Père a la vie en lui-même, ainsi il a donné au Fils d’avoir la vie en lui-même. 27 Et il lui a donné le pouvoir de juger, parce qu’il est Fils de l’homme. 28 Ne vous étonnez pas de cela ; car l’heure vient où tous ceux qui sont dans les sépulcres entendront sa voix, 29 (5-28) et en sortiront. (5-29) Ceux qui auront fait le bien ressusciteront pour la vie, mais ceux qui auront fait le mal ressusciteront pour le jugement. 30 Je ne puis rien faire de moi-même : selon que j’entends, je juge ; et mon jugement est juste, parce que je ne cherche pas ma volonté, mais la volonté de celui qui m’a envoyé.
31  Si c’est moi qui rends témoignage de moi-même, mon témoignage n’est pas vrai. 32 Il y en a un autre qui rend témoignage de moi, et je sais que le témoignage qu’il rend de moi est vrai.” (Jean 5:25-32 LSG)

“28  Vous avez entendu que je vous ai dit : Je m’en vais, et je reviens vers vous. Si vous m’aimiez, vous vous réjouiriez de ce que je vais au Père ; car le Père est plus grand que moi. 29 Et maintenant je vous ai dit ces choses avant qu’elles arrivent, afin que, lorsqu’elles arriveront, vous croyiez. 30 Je ne parlerai plus guère avec vous ; car le prince du monde vient. Il n’a rien en moi ; 31 mais afin que le monde sache que j’aime le Père, et que j’agis selon l’ordre que le Père m’a donné, levez-vous, partons d’ici.” (Jean 14:28-31 LSG)

“1  Je suis le vrai cep, et mon Père est le vigneron. 2 Tout sarment qui est en moi et qui ne porte pas de fruit, il le retranche ; et tout sarment qui porte du fruit, il l’émonde, afin qu’il porte encore plus de fruit. 3 Déjà vous êtes purs, à cause de la parole que je vous ai annoncée. 4 Demeurez en moi, et je demeurerai en vous. Comme le sarment ne peut de lui-même porter du fruit, s’il ne demeure attaché au cep, ainsi vous ne le pouvez non plus, si vous ne demeurez en moi. 5 Je suis le cep, vous êtes les sarments. Celui qui demeure en moi et en qui je demeure porte beaucoup de fruit, car sans moi vous ne pouvez rien faire.” (Jean 15:1-5 LSG)

“9  Comme le Père m’a aimé, je vous ai aussi aimés. Demeurez dans mon amour. 10 Si vous gardez mes commandements, vous demeurerez dans mon amour, de même que j’ai gardé les commandements de mon Père, et que je demeure dans son amour. 11 Je vous ai dit ces choses, afin que ma joie soit en vous, et que votre joie soit parfaite. 12 C’est ici mon commandement : Aimez-vous les uns les autres, comme je vous ai aimés. 13 Il n’y a pas de plus grand amour que de donner sa vie pour ses amis. 14 Vous êtes mes amis, si vous faites ce que je vous commande. 15 Je ne vous appelle plus serviteurs, parce que le serviteur ne sait pas ce que fait son maître ; mais je vous ai appelés amis, parce que je vous ai fait connaître tout ce que j’ai appris de mon Père. 16 Ce n’est pas vous qui m’avez choisi ; mais moi, je vous ai choisis, et je vous ai établis, afin que vous alliez, et que vous portiez du fruit, et que votre fruit demeure, afin que ce que vous demanderez au Père en mon nom, il vous le donne.” (Jean 15:9-16 LSG)

“45 Après avoir prié, il se leva, et vint vers les disciples, qu’il trouva endormis de tristesse, 46 et il leur dit : Pourquoi dormez-vous ? Levez-vous et priez, afin que vous ne tombiez pas en tentation.
47  Comme il parlait encore, voici, une foule arriva ; et celui qui s’appelait Judas, l’un des douze, marchait devant elle. Il s’approcha de Jésus, pour le baiser. 48 Et Jésus lui dit : Judas, c’est par un baiser que tu livres le Fils de l’homme ! 49 Ceux qui étaient avec Jésus, voyant ce qui allait arriver, dirent : Seigneur, frapperons-nous de l’épée ? 50 Et l’un d’eux frappa le serviteur du souverain sacrificateur, et lui emporta l’oreille droite. 51 Mais Jésus, prenant la parole, dit : Laissez, arrêtez ! Et, ayant touché l’oreille de cet homme, il le guérit. 52 Jésus dit ensuite aux principaux sacrificateurs, aux chefs des gardes du temple, et aux anciens, qui étaient venus contre lui : Vous êtes venus, comme après un brigand, avec des épées et des bâtons. 53 J’étais tous les jours avec vous dans le temple, et vous n’avez pas mis la main sur moi. Mais c’est ici votre heure, et la puissance des ténèbres.” (Luc 22:45-53 LSG)

“Je mettrai inimitié entre toi et la femme, entre ta postérité et sa postérité : celle-ci t’écrasera la tête, et tu lui blesseras le talon.” (Genèse 3:15 LSG)

“13 Le Dieu d’Abraham, d’Isaac et de Jacob, le Dieu de nos pères, a glorifié son serviteur Jésus, que vous avez livré et renié devant Pilate, qui était d’avis qu’on le relâchât. 14 Vous avez renié le Saint et le Juste, et vous avez demandé qu’on vous accordât la grâce d’un meurtrier. 15 Vous avez fait mourir le Prince de la vie, que Dieu a ressuscité des morts ; nous en sommes témoins. 16 C’est par la foi en son nom que son nom a raffermi celui que vous voyez et connaissez ; c’est la foi en lui qui a donné à cet homme cette entière guérison, en présence de vous tous. 17 Et maintenant, frères, je sais que vous avez agi par ignorance, ainsi que vos chefs. 18 Mais Dieu a accompli de la sorte ce qu’il avait annoncé d’avance par la bouche de tous ses prophètes, que son Christ devait souffrir.” (Actes 3:13-18 LSG)

“29 Pierre et les apôtres répondirent : Il faut obéir à Dieu plutôt qu’aux hommes. 30 Le Dieu de nos pères a ressuscité Jésus, que vous avez tué, en le pendant au bois. 31 Dieu l’a élevé par sa droite comme Prince et Sauveur, pour donner à Israël la repentance et le pardon des péchés. 32 Nous sommes témoins de ces choses, de même que le Saint-Esprit, que Dieu a donné à ceux qui lui obéissent.” (Actes 5:29-32 LSG)

“3 comment échapperons-nous en négligeant un si grand salut, qui, annoncé d’abord par le Seigneur, nous a été confirmé par ceux qui l’ont entendu, 4 Dieu appuyant leur témoignage par des signes, des prodiges, et divers miracles, et par les dons du Saint-Esprit distribués selon sa volonté.
5  En effet, ce n’est pas à des anges que Dieu a soumis le monde à venir dont nous parlons. 6 Or quelqu’un a rendu quelque part ce témoignage : Qu’est-ce que l’homme, pour que tu te souviennes de lui, Ou le fils de l’homme, pour que tu prennes soin de lui ? 7 Tu l’as abaissé pour un peu de temps au-dessous des anges, Tu l’as couronné de gloire et d’honneur, 8 Tu as mis toutes choses sous ses pieds. En effet, en lui soumettant toutes choses, Dieu n’a rien laissé qui ne lui fût soumis. Cependant, nous ne voyons pas encore maintenant que toutes choses lui soient soumises. 9 Mais celui qui a été abaissé pour un peu de temps au-dessous des anges, Jésus, nous le voyons couronné de gloire et d’honneur à cause de la mort qu’il a soufferte, afin que, par la grâce de Dieu, il souffrît la mort pour tous.
10  Il convenait, en effet, que celui pour qui et par qui sont toutes choses, et qui voulait conduire à la gloire beaucoup de fils, élevât à la perfection par les souffrances le Prince de leur salut. 11 Car celui qui sanctifie et ceux qui sont sanctifiés sont tous issus d’un seul. C’est pourquoi il n’a pas honte de les appeler frères, 12 lorsqu’il dit : J’annoncerai ton nom à mes frères, Je te célébrerai au milieu de l’assemblée. 13 Et encore : Je me confierai en toi. Et encore : Me voici, moi et les enfants que Dieu m’a donnés.” (Hébreux 2:3-13 LSG)

14 Nisan a day to remember

The last day in the life of Jeshua, Jesus Christ

The day Jesus (the Nazarene Jeshua) was led from Caiaphas into the Praetorium  the Jewish priests didn’t enter into the Praetorium, that they might not be defiled, but might eat the Passover (Pesach/Pessah). (John 18:28) Earlier in the day, when darkness had come to enter Jesus and his closest friends had come together in an upperroom in the city Jerusalem. Between the two evenings Jesus and his disciples had kept to the tradition and to the Law of God to prepare to slay the Passover Lamb.

Jesus had remembered that Jehovah had spoken to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt that this month Nisan had to be to them the beginning of months. So for the People of God it became the first month of the year. On the tenth day of this month, the people in the time of Moses when they were still slaves in Egypt had take to them every man a lamb, according to their fathers’ houses, a lamb for a household; and if the household was too little for a lamb, then he and his neighbour next to his house to take one according to the number of the souls. The people of Moses had to choose a lamb without blemish, a male a year old. They had to keep it until the fourteenth day of the same month; and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel then had to kill it at evening. Next they had to take some of the blood, and put it on the two doorposts and on the lintel, on the houses in which they were going to eat the flesh, roasted with fire, and unleavened bread and with bitter herbs. It was not eaten raw, nor boiled at all with water, but roasted with fire; with its head, its legs and its inner parts and nothing of it was to remain until the morning. That which remained of it until the morning had to be burned with fire or put on the Sheol (hell, the burning place for corpses out of a town).

“1 And Jehovah spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying, 2 This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you. 3 Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth [day] of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to their fathers’ houses, a lamb for a household: 4 and if the household be too little for a lamb, then shall he and his neighbor next unto his house take one according to the number of the souls; according to every man’s eating ye shall make your count for the lamb. 5 Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male a year old: ye shall take it from the sheep, or from the goats: 6 and ye shall keep it until the fourteenth day of the same month; and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it at even. 7 And they shall take of the blood, and put it on the two side-posts and on the lintel, upon the houses wherein they shall eat it. 8 And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire, and unleavened bread; with bitter herbs they shall eat it. 9 Eat not of it raw, nor boiled at all with water, but roast with fire; its head with its legs and with the inwards thereof. 10 And ye shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; but that which remaineth of it until the morning ye shall burn with fire.” (Exodus 12:1-10 ASV)

The Call of the Most High to evade the plague of death

God had ordered Moses to call for all the elders of Israel, and to tell them to draw out and to take lambs according to their families, and kill the lambs as a Passover. Because God had to pass those doors which had the strip of the bunch of hyssop, dipped in the lamb’s blood, at the lintel and the two doorposts. The blood of the Lamb was the sign for Jehovah that those houses could be passes through to strike the Egyptians. When he sees the blood on the lintel, and on the two doorposts, Jehovah passed over the door, and did not allow the destroyer to come in to their houses to strike them.

For all God’s People it is important to remember that night when God saved the children of Israel. Jehovah demanded to observe this thing for an ordinance to them and to their sons forever. Being it “forever” means that it still should happen today in the 21st century. God told them at the time of Moses that it shall happen when they had come to the land which Jehovah was going to give them, according as He had promised, that they shall keep this service. He told them that it will happen, when their children ask them, ‘What do you mean by this service?’  That they shall say, ‘it is the sacrifice of Jehovah’s Passover, who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt, when he struck the Egyptians, and spared our houses.’”

“21 Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel, and said unto them, Draw out, and take you lambs according to your families, and kill the Passover. 22 And ye shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the basin, and strike the lintel and the two side-posts with the blood that is in the basin; and none of you shall go out of the door of his house until the morning. 23 For Jehovah will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side-posts, Jehovah will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you. 24 And ye shall observe this thing for an ordinance to thee and to thy sons for ever. 25 And it shall come to pass, when ye are come to the land which Jehovah will give you, according as he hath promised, that ye shall keep this service. 26 And it shall come to pass, when your children shall say unto you, What mean ye by this service? 27 that ye shall say, It is the sacrifice of Jehovah’s Passover, who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt, when he smote the Egyptians, and delivered our houses. And the people bowed the head and worshipped.” (Exodus 12:21-27 ASV)

God went through the land of Egypt in that night of the first month of the new year, and all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and animal, at places where there was no blood on the houses were killed. No plague came onto the people who listened to the ordinance of God.

A commandment by the Most High for a day to remember

“You shall observe this rite as a perpetual ordinance for you and your children.” (Exodus 12:24 NRSV)

Because God demanded to be that day to be for a memorial, which every believer had to keep it, a feast to Jehovah, the only One God. Throughout their generations they kept it a feast by an ordinance forever, and as such Jesus also celebrated on the 14th of Nisan. The first day there had to be to them a holy convocation not to eat leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day. Jesus his family and his disciples observed the feast of unleavened bread. In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at evening, they did not consume unleavened bread.

The Passover lambs were to be killed in the evening of Nisan 14. That means toward the end of Nisan 14, or late afternoon. The “evening” of a day is not its beginning, but its ending, before sunset (see Exodus 12:18, Leviticus 23:32). In these verses, notice that the Feast of Unleavened Bread begins at the “evening” of the 14th of Nisan (leading into the high holy day of the 15th); likewise, the Day of Atonement, which is the tenth day of Tishri, began “in the ninth day of the month at even” (Leviticus 23:32).

“In the first [month], on the fourteenth day of the month at even, ye shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of the month at even.” (Exodus 12:18 ASV

“12 “I have heard the grumbling of the Israelites. Tell them, ‘At twilight you will eat meat, and in the morning you will be filled with bread. Then you will know that I am the LORD your God.’” 13 That evening quail came and covered the camp, and in the morning there was a layer of dew around the camp. 14 When the dew was gone, thin flakes like frost on the ground appeared on the desert floor. 15 When the Israelites saw it, they said to each other, “What is it?” For they did not know what it was. Moses said to them, “It is the bread the LORD has given you to eat.” (Exodus 16:12-15 NIV)

“27 “The tenth day of this seventh month is the Day of Atonement. Hold a sacred assembly and deny yourselves, and present an offering made to the LORD by fire. 28 Do no work on that day, because it is the Day of Atonement, when atonement is made for you before the LORD your God. 29 Anyone who does not deny himself on that day must be cut off from his people. 30 I will destroy from among his people anyone who does any work on that day. 31 You shall do no work at all. This is to be a lasting ordinance for the generations to come, wherever you live. 32 It is a sabbath of rest for you, and you must deny yourselves. From the evening of the ninth day of the month until the following evening you are to observe your sabbath.” 33 The LORD said to Moses, 34 “Say to the Israelites: ‘On the fifteenth day of the seventh month the LORD’s Feast of Tabernacles begins, and it lasts for seven days. 35 The first day is a sacred assembly; do no regular work. 36 For seven days present offerings made to the LORD by fire, and on the eighth day hold a sacred assembly and present an offering made to the LORD by fire. It is the closing assembly; do no regular work. 37 (“‘These are the LORD’s appointed feasts, which you are to proclaim as sacred assemblies for bringing offerings made to the LORD by fire—the burnt offerings and grain offerings, sacrifices and drink offerings required for each day.” (Leviticus 23:27-37 NIV)

Pesach

Dough baked it into matzah, unleavened bread

  1. Pesach
    Pesach, or Passover, is a major holiday in Jewish tradition, and is one of the three pilgrimage holidays, along with Sukkot and Shavuot. These are the holidays on which the whole Jewish people would come to Jerusalem in ancient times, when the Holy Temple was there, and would offer animal and grain sacrifices. Since the destruction of the Temple, a few of the holiday traditions have been retained, without the pilgrimage and the sacrifices, and many new traditions have been added.Pesach, which starts on the 15th day of the Hebrew month of Nisan (usually in April), lasts for seven days and is celebrated to commemorate the exodus from Egypt – one of the main stories in the history of the Jewish people and in western culture in general.
    +
    Another name for Pesach is the Holiday of Unleavened Bread. The story of the exodus from Egypt relates that the Israelites left Egypt hurriedly and the dough they had prepared had no time to rise, so they baked it into matzah, unleavened bread.
  2. Pesach: Passover  Pesach (in Hebrew)
    Pesach, known in English as Passover, is one of the most commonly observed Jewish holidays, even by otherwise non-observant Jews. According to the 2000-01 National Jewish Population Survey (NJPS), 67% of Jews routinely hold or attend a Pesach seder, while only 46% belong to a synagogue.Pesach 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, but little attention is paid to this aspect of the holiday. The primary observances of Pesach are related to the Exodus from Egypt after generations of slavery. This story is told in Exodus, Ch. 1-15. Many of the Pesach observances are instituted in Chs. 12-15.
    +
    “Pesach” is also the name of the sacrificial offering (a lamb) that was made in the Temple on this holiday. The holiday is also referred to as Chag he-Aviv Chag he-Aviv (in Hebrew), (the Spring Festival), Chag ha-Matzot Chag ha-Matzot (in Hebrew), (the Festival of Matzahs), and Z’man Cheiruteinu Z'man Cheiruteinu (in Hebrew), (the Time of Our Freedom) (again, all with those Scottish “ch”s).
  3. Korban PesachThe Passover sacrifice (Hebrew: korban Pesakh קרבן פסח ), also known as the “sacrifice of Passover“, the Paschal Lamb, or the Passover Lamb, is the sacrifice that the Torah mandates to be brought on the eve of Passover, and eaten on the first night of the holiday with bitter herbs and matzo. According to the Torah, it was first offered on the night of the IsraelitesExodus from Egypt. Although practiced by Jews in ancient times, the ritual is today only practiced by Samaritans at Mount Gerizim.
  4. Jewish Encyclopedia article on the Passover Offering
  5. What is PassoverThe eight-day festival of Passover is celebrated in the early spring, from the 15th through the 22nd of the Hebrew month of Nissan. It commemorates the emancipation of the Israelites from slavery in ancient Egypt.
    +
    At the stroke of midnight of 15 Nissan in the year 2448 from creation (1313 BCE), G‑d visited the last of the ten plagues on the Egyptians, killing all their firstborn. While doing so, G‑d spared the Children of Israel, “passing over” their homes—hence the name of the holiday. Pharaoh’s resistance was broken, and he virtually chased his former slaves out of the land. The Israelites left in such a hurry, in fact, that the bread they baked as provisions for the way did not have time to rise. Six hundred thousand adult males, plus many more women and children, left Egypt on that day, and began the trek to Mount Sinai and their birth as G‑d’s chosen people.
    +
    search for chametz + burning of the chametz + matzah + recitation of the Haggadah, a liturgy that describes in detail the story of the Exodus from Egypt. The Haggadah is the fulfillment of the biblical obligation to recount to our children the story of the Exodus on the night of Passover.

  9. People in History:  Moses MO’SES (mo’zez). The deliverer, leader, lawgiver, and prophet of Israel. The name in Heb. is mosheh (“drawn out”), but the original is Egyptian ms’, a “child,” a “son,” reflecting that Pharaoh’s daughter simply named him “child” (cf. Thutmose, Ahmose, etc., in which the same element appears frequently in Egyptian names). Thutmose “Son of Thot,” etc. Moses belonged to the tribe of Levi, and was the son of Amram by his wife Jochebed. The other members of the family were Aaron and Miriam, his elder brother and sister.
    +
    Moses was a leader so inspired by God that he was able to build a united nation from a race of oppressed and weary slaves. In the covenant ceremony at Mount Sinai, where the Ten Commandments were given, he founded the religious community known as Israel. As the interpreter of these covenant laws, he was the organizer of the community’s religious and civil traditions. His story is told in the Old Testament– in the books of Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy.
  10. Moses Leads the People Out of Egypt (Exodus 14)God made a promise to Abraham that he would have an uncountable number of descendants – more than the stars in the sky! For exactly 430 years, Abraham’s descendants, the Israelites, had been slaves in the land of Egypt. Pharaoh was the ruler of Egypt. God sent Moses to Pharaoh to tell him to let God’s people go.
    +
    Pharaoh would not listen to God. God sent terrible plagues upon the land of Egypt.
    +
    The last plague that God sent was by far the worse plague. God sent the death angel to kill the first-born child of every family and the firstborn of every animal. The Bible says that there was loud crying in Egypt for there was not a household without someone dead. During the night, Pharaoh summoned Moses and told him to leave Egypt. This is exactly what God said would happen. Moses and all the Israelites left in a hurry. Their bread did not even rise, and this is why Jewish people today still celebrate the Feast of Unleavened Bread.
  11. Yom Kippur, Day of Atonement, holiest and most important holiday in Judaism
    It is a day of fasting and prayer that is celebrated on the 10th of the Hebrew month of Tishrei, 10 days after Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. Yom Kippur marks the end of the “Ten Days of Repentance” or the “High Holidays,” and grants Jews a last opportunity to obtain forgiveness and absolution for their sins in the previous year.
    +
    Yom Kippur is not directly connected with any specific historical event, although some believe that on this day Moses came down from Mt. Sinai with the second set of tablets engraved with the Ten Commandments and God forgave the Israelites for the sin of the Golden Calf. This is a holiday ordained in the Torah, where it is called a Shabbat of Solemn Rest, a day on which no productive work can be done, just like on Shabbat.

  • Preparations for the Passover Meal – Luke 22: 7-13 (shalommysticwind.wordpress.com)
    Except for certain redaction changes, the Lukan passage is a reproduction of its parallel in Mark 14: 12-16. Already in Luke 22: 1 the evangelist had identified the feast of the Unleavened Bread and the feast of the Passover, an identification which is not entirely wrong.
    +
    The present Lukan periscope (Lk 22: 7-13) clearly indicates that the Last Supper is a Passover Meal (cf. Lk 22: 7, 8, 11, and 13). The parallel passages in Matthew 26: 17-19 and Mark 14: 12-16 also present Jesus’ meal with his disciples as a Passover Meal held on the 14th or 15th night of Nisan.
  • Conspiracy of Jews against Jesus – Luke 22: 1-2 (shalommysticwind.wordpress.com)
    According to the evangelists, the events of Jesus’ passion are connected with the national Jewish feast of the Passover. The Christian expression “Paschal Mystery” in reference to the mystery of Jesus’ passion, death, and resurrection, is derived from the Greek word for ‘Passover’ – “Pascha.” The Passion of Jesus is thus understood as his own Passover, his ‘exodus’ from this world to the Father (God) (cf. Lk 9: 31).
  • Symbols and Signs – The First Month (cfcspn.com)
    According to the plan of God for His people, and as a symbol of the Lord’s Day, God told Israel they are to sacrifice the lamb on the fourteenth day of the month at evening, and that they are to eat unleavened bread for seven days. The eight day would have been a Sabbath, and on that day, they were to rest from all their labor.Rest was the symbol of God’s coming day of redemption, rest from the fear of death and deliverance from the power of sin. The Passover celebration is a sign to the nation, that through the memorial of the day they may identify their Messiah. However, as a part of God’s plan, and that He might bring the Gentiles into the relationship, and covenant of Israel, and fulfilling the promise  made to Abraham, Israel rejected their savior, and we as Gentiles accepting Christ has become the sons of Abraham.
  • Exodus Chapter 12 (maryrubow.wordpress.com)
    The Lord instructs Moses and Aaron, as the priesthood leaders of the Israelites, to consider this time the first month of their year, also known as Abib (according to the footnote, which references Exodus 34:18 and Exodus 13:4). They probably had been marking time as the Egyptians did, so this was how the Lord wanted time to be recognized and recorded for the Israelites.
    +
    As someone who is not Jewish, but who has been adopted into a tribe of Israel, through my own covenants with God, I wonder why I have never thought to recognize the dates which celebrate these amazing things. I believe that the law of Moses was fulfilled through the atonement of Jesus Christ, but that doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t still recognize the glorious deliverance that the Lord provided for these people.
  • Exodus 12. God establishes the passover (bummyla.wordpress.com)
    And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying, 2 This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.
  • Signs and Symbols – A Table in the Desert (cfcspn.com)
    Due to the fall of humanity Judgment came upon the world, and no one is safe from this universal judgment as we are all descendants of Adam the first man created in the image of God, and a man who rebelled against the will of God. And thrown out of the kingdom, he was sentenced to death; and as his children born in his house, we are counted as cursed children falling under the curse and judgment of death that was passed unto Adam our ancestor. However, God had promised to deliver him from this judgment, God declaring on behalf of man grace and mercy; however, for the enemy there would be no recall of judgment, he will remain under the curse forever.
  • Exodus Chapter 13 (maryrubow.wordpress.com)
    The Israelites began their journey from Egypt, with Moses as their prophet and leader. They had been given some instruction as far as the passover and how to handle the pascal lamb and unleavened bread. This was a time for the Lord to establish His laws with his people, who had been in bondage for over 400 years.
  • Red Letter Year: 2/22 (mikeraburn.com)
    Like Hemingway, Mark’s brevity contributes to the tension. An anonymous woman pours out her life savings onto Jesus’ head (nard came in an lidless alabaster container, it only opened by breaking, an early example of one-time use disposable packaging). Not because she knows he is about to die. Jesus provides that interpretation of her act.
