RE: timing of Passover

This is a note I wrote up and posted on facebook to explain some of the things our family believes about Passover, easter, etc.

easter—most of what we know isn’t so!

This is what we have learned.

“Palm Sunday”

So do you think this week began with Palm Sunday, marking the anniversary of the Sunday Jesus did something new and rode into town on a donkey to hosannas and palm branches?

It was a Sabbath day, in the year it actually happened. It was an annual event celebrating the bringing in of a particular lamb to signal the start of the Passover season. On the 10th day of the month Aviv the people were commanded by God to separate a lamb for each household for special care and feeding. This perfect specimen was to be kept separate until the preparation day, then killed and prepared for the family as a celebration feast. Two things happened, the lamb got ready for the meal and the family got to know that lamb.

What happened in Jerusalem? The Messiah prepared for Passover and the people got to know him better.

“Good Friday”

Then on the 14th day of Aviv (Wednesday that year) the lamb was killed.

This was at the same time as the death on the cross. When the lamb was slain at the altar in the Temple, the words “It is finished” were uttered, and the curtain was torn from top to bottom.

All the people got ready for the feast before dark so they could wash up to be clean to celebrate the feast together. If someone were still unclean at evening, he would have to wait a month to celebrate the Passover and would not be able to celebrate it with the family. This accounts for the rush to get Jesus buried before dark, the beginning of the new day.

So Jesus (or Yeshua his Hebrew name) was in the grave 3 days and 3 nights.

Just before dark on Wednesday night…..all day Thursday

Thursday night…….all day Friday

Friday night………..all day Saturday, until just before dark

Total= 3 days and 3 nights, and all are complete.

“Resurrection Day”

The actual resurrection took place a short time before dark on Saturday, just as the first day of the week began. (This is another way the seventh day has been blessed and hallowed by the Creator.) The women came to the tomb shortly before dark because they could leave their homes to go a short ways before the end of the Sabbath, as long as they weren’t going to try to come back home before the Sabbath was over. They were trying to get a good start on the prep work they thought hadn’t been done before the burial.

“First Fruits”

In Leviticus the feast of First Fruits is the day after the weekly Sabbath in the week of Unleavened Bread. When Yeshua arose, he told Mary not to touch him, as he had not ascended to His Father. Later in the day when he saw his followers, they saw talked to and touched him. What was the difference? He had ascended to His Father as the wave offering of the First Fruits. Two loaves were waved toward heaven. Yeshua was sent heavenward as part of this first fruits of resurrection. After this he could be touched with no effect on the purity of the wave offering.

What has the son of God to do with eggs bunnies and ham–not a doggone thing!!!!!

He didn’t keep any of these customs as he was blameless in the law.

And all of them are part of idolatrous heathen customs.
