Jesus Earthly Life

The Eternal Word

Sometime in 5BC, after 400 years of silence, no new prophecys, no thus said the Lord God…

Luke 1:11-13 it starts with an angel standing by the alter when Zacharias enters and FEAR came on him… the angel says “do not be afraid” your prayer is heard..

John the baptiser(Jesus' cousin) is born 6 months before Jesus.

After being born in Bethlehem, He is taken to Egypt until Herod dies, and then to Nazareth.

From His youth to His Adulthood, only the Luke 2 comment is given to us

In the Fall/Autumn AD26, Jesus would be 30,

He came from Galilee to Bethabara to be baptised by John and then to the wilderness for fasting and His time of temptation. Then it was back home and to a wedding at Cana, just north of Nazareth, and from there to Capernaum…. Winter passes and in the Spring of 27 He attends the first passover in His ministry at Jerusalem and meets Nicodemus.. (he gets saved, see Jn 19:39). The baptiser is imprisoned in the summer and Jesus/ followers go North between Mt Gerizim and Ebal at Shechem (Woman at the well) then thru Samaria toward Galilee to start the Galilean ministry at Capernaum. THIS WAS A TOTALLY DIFFERENT JESUS.. , HE WALKED AND TALKED WITH AUTHORITY.. the crowds came.

Autumn 27  2nd trip to Cana, then to (Luke 4:16+)Nazareth, read Isaiah 61:1-2  and called His followers.. Heals many many people.

Spring 28 The 2nd Passover in His ministry

The Pool of Bethesda healing as well as others while at Jerusalem.  Then it was back to Capernaum and to the Sea of Galilee and from His many disciples(Luke 6:12-13) He called the 12 and delivered the “Sermon on the Mount”.  In the Autumn of 28,. He walks on the water- Matt 14:33 NO MAN HAD EVER DONE THIS- Elisha had raised the dead (2nd Kings 4) NOW THEY KNEW HE WAS NOT JUST A PROPHET, BUT THE MESSIAH!!  THE ONE.. GOD's Annointed.

Spring 29 now the 3rd Passover in His ministry.  Afterwards He returns to Capernaum  then they leave for the region of Tyre and Sidon, Matt 15:21+  the Greek lady pleads for her demon possessed daughter. They returned to the Sea of Galilee and feeds the mulitiude.. Summer 29  Then they leave and go to the region of Caesarea Philippi near the foot of Mt Hermon and there He acknowledges to be the Christ, to His disciples. (Matt 16:13)   at this time He also tells them of His coming death and resurrection. The Transfiguration

Afterward they return to Galilee and He continues speaking of His death and resurrection and they start thinking KINGDOM, and want to know who is the greatest??  Fall 29. The journey to Jerusalem begins. Luke 10:38+ He stays with Mary, Martha and Lazarus in Bethany.   He teaches in the Temple at the Feast of Tabernacles (Jn 7:14+8:+)  Winter 29  (Jn 10:22-39) Feast of Dedication (Hanukkah). They go to Bethabara

And stay there until Spring 30.  He is told about Lazarus death and they return to Bethany for his raising.

The 4th and final Passover. 

JESUS’ LAST WEEK

 

Knowing what must take place, the Prophecy that must be fulfilled in this time frame, Jesus spent His final days leaving lessons for the future. Not what HE wanted, but what must be.

Six days before passover, on Friday, Nisan the 8th, in the Bethany home of Simon the healed leper (Matthew 26: 6), Martha was serving supper. Her brother Lazarus sat with Jesus and others around the table. Lazarus didn't know that his resurrection a few days earlier started the Pharisees' plot for Jesus' death (John 11: 44-53)). Suddenly their sister, Mary, anointed Jesus with  precious ointment. Jesus said she was preparing for His burial (John 12: 1-7).

 

Each day, Jesus taught huge crowds in the temple, delivering Kingdom parables and confounding the Jewish leaders. At night He moved a little to the east, across the Kidron valley to the Mount of Olives near his friends' home in Bethany (Luke 21: 37, 38). On Nisan 10 (we call it Palm Sunday) He mounted the donkey's colt. The palm-waving crowd surrounded Him.

From Bethany, they crested the Mount of Olives. The crowd extended down the mountain, across the valley, and up to the restored temple at Jerusalem.

 

Herod the Great's restoration of the Temple ended just forty-three years earlier. It's white marble and polished gold was stunning. Josephus said it was like looking at snow in the sun; but Jesus looked at  the hearts below. Masses of people waited for Him. Perhaps three million Jews were in Jerusalem, coming from all over for Passover. People astonished each other with gossip about the carpenter's son who healed the sick, calmed the waves, raised the dead, He even forgives SIN

 

Word of His approach spanned the Kidron Valley faster than the donkey. Anticipation burst into praise. It flowed down Olivet, across the valley, and surged up the Temple's walls. The Scribes, Pharisees, and Sadducees sputtered indignantly as the sound mounted the temple walls and competed with the bleating lambs;

 

The multitude and his disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen (Luke 19: 37).

 

Those crowding close, saw the light glisten off of Jesus' cheeks. They probably thought He shed tears of joy. But no, Jesus wept. He knew these religious people - His people - really looked for someone else. They had waited three hundred years since Judas Maccabees had been their "Robin Hood"; now they misunderstood prophecy and looked for another warrior of power, a king. The freedom they craved was not from sin - but from Rome and Herod.

 

Some Pharisees (the fundamentalist leaders in the crowd) commanded Jesus to conform to their plans; to silence the praise of His disciples. As Jesus wept a few days ago at the unbelief near Lazarus' tomb, He now wept again as He approached the city. The Prince of Peace was not understood in the City of Peace (Luke 19: 29, 41-44); they didn't understand His “coming”.

 

As He approached Herod's temple, anchored on Mount Moriah, they approached the smaller eastern gate. Crowning the wall, to Jesus' left, was the lookout tower, the pinnacle of the temple. Herod and Pilate could not enter the Jewish section below, but they could look down on everything from that tower.

The outside wall of that pinnacle is probably where Satan encouraged Jesus to jump. According to Josephus, the leap would have been about 400 feet,.

 

Through the Eastern or Golden Gate, Jesus went up the staircase leading to the magnificent platform. Herod had expanded it to thirty-five acres of polished marble courtyards, surrounding the Temple itself.

 

The stairs brought Jesus to the part of the platform called Solomon's Porch, part of the court of the Gentiles. He faced a fence surrounding the Jewish area. Signs warned that death awaited any Gentile who entered there at the Gate Beautiful. Behind that gate was the court of the women, then the court of the men and the altar of sacrifice. Beyond that was the actual Temple. The interior was the same size as Moses' tabernacle in the wilderness, a mere ten feet wide and high; and thirty feet long. Herod embellished that with such an ornate false front that it became one of the wonders of the world.

 

Turning to His left, Jesus attention riveted on the moneychangers on that section of the court of the Gentiles. He drove the money-changers out.

In sight of the King, soldiers,and the Jewish leadership, where both Jew and Gentile could come to hear - Jesus spent four days teaching Kingdom parables. Wisdom about His plans was available to anyone who would believe. Soon, some of these people would realize that His coming was not singular, but twofold. It had to be rightly divided. He taught about His Kingdom right in front of Israel's apostate leaders (Luke 19: 41, 47 through 23: 39).

NOTE:(the names of the days line up with our days, you can allow for ths Jewish difference)

    On WEDNESDAY evening about 6:00 pm (begining of Nisan 14)  Jesus gathers with his disciples for the first meal of Passover, the Feast of the First Born, and institutes another meal in remembrance, the Lord's Supper (Matt 26:17-29). Then He washes the disciples feet (Jn 13:4-11)

And He tells that He will be betrayed (Matt 26:21-25). At that point Judas leaves the room (Jn 13:27-30) and Jesus gives a new commandment, to love one another (Jn 13:27-30)

He then gives His farewell discourse, and promises the Comforter (Jn 14). He tells the Apostles their place in the future Kingdom (Lk 22:30-38) and that conflict is coming, to take money and swords (2) with them this time out. Then they sang a hymn and went out (Mk 14:26). It was about 9:00 pm. They went towards  Gethesemane....

As they walk He teaches He is the Vine (Jn 15) He's leaving, and the Holy Spirit is coming (Jn 16)

and then He prays for them and for us (Jn 17:20) who will believe.

About MIDNIGHT, while Jesus is still in the Garden, Judas arrives with the soldiers and betrays Him (Lk 22:47+) with the Kiss. Peter, full of fire, cuts the soldiers ear off, but Jesus heals him (Jn 18:10). Jesus is arrested and taken away, (Jn 18:12) the disciples flee in fear (Mt 26:56).

Jesus is accused before the high priest Annas (Jn 18:19-23) but the Jews don't enter the hall, they must stay CLEAN (Jn 18:28) for the Passover. Next is His trial before Caiaphas & Sanhedrin (Mt 26:57-58), followed by Peters denial (Lk 22:54-62)

DAWN THURSDAY AM the 14th, the DAY OF PASSOVER

Judgement of the Sanhedrin (Mt 27:1) Judas returns the money and they purchace the potters field (Mt 27:3-10).

 He is brought before Pilate for inquiry (Lk 23:2-7), then His trial before Herod (8-11) and the trial before Pilate (13-25) who hears his wife's dream, and finds Jesus not guilty (Mt 27:19)

To satisify the Jews, Jesus is beaten and offered for release (Jn 19:1-2) but the crowd wants Jesus crucified and Barabbas (meaning bar abba - son of the father) set free, Pilate washes hands (Mt 27:24), and turns Him over to be crucified (Lk 23:27-31). They place a crown of thorns on His head and a  purple robe on Him (Mt 27:27-30) and make Him carry His own cross until He falls, then Simon the Cyrene carries His cross (Mk 15:21) Jesus tells the women not to weep for Him (Lk 23:27-31)

He is Crucified on Golgotha (Mt 27:33)

About 9:00 am THURSDAY

He is between the two thieves (Mk 15:25) from  3-5 pm. Then while the Lambs were being slain, Jesus died. (Ex 12:6 Lk 23:46) at twilight.

THURSDAY EVENING AFTER 6:00 PM  NISAN 15th. 1st day of the feast of Unleaven Bread

 His body was put into the tomb  (Jn 19:40) and a guard ask for (Mt 27:62-66)

FRIDAY 15th the women prepared spices (Lk 23:56) for Him

SATURDAY 16th the Sabbath  they rested (Lk 23:56)

SUNDAY am the 17th

The Feast of Firstfruits.......and HE IS THE FIRSTFRUITS

HIS RESURRECTION......HE IS NOT HERE, HE IS RISEN AS HE SAID (Mt 28:6)

WHY SEEK YE THE LIVING AMONG THE DEAD ? (Lk 24:5)

He that testifies these things says SURELY I COME QUICKLY (Rev 22:20)

Jesus wanted them to know; He wants us to know. Perhaps Jesus sorrows again, now,

For His people today are terribly confused about prophecy. Does He weep for you?

The Holy Spirit wants to tutor you about Jesus' promises to come. Read them……..

A little something EXTRA:

Luke 19:41-44   THEY SHOULD HAVE KNOWN THE MESSIAH WAS DUE TODAY!!

 

41 Jesus Weeps over Jerusalem Now as He drew near, He saw the city and wept over it,  

42 saying, "If you had known, even you, especially in this your day, the things that make for your peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes.   

43 For days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment around you, surround you and close you in on every side,   

44 and level you, and your children within you, to the ground; and they will not leave in you one stone upon another, because you did not know the time of your visitation."   NKJV 

HOW????   Daniels dream  “490 years”  Dan 9:24-26 

24 "Seventy weeks are determined For your people and for your holy city, To finish the transgression, To make an end of sins, To make reconciliation for iniquity, To bring in everlasting righteousness, To seal up vision and prophecy, And to anoint the Most Holy.  

25 "Know therefore and understand, That from the going forth of the command (the command was issued in Nehemiah 2:6 )  To restore and build Jerusalem Until Messiah the Prince, There shall be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks;(69 weeks of years 483 years) The street shall be built again, and the wall,  Even in troublesome times.  

26 "And after the sixty-two weeks Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself; And the people of the prince who is to come Shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end of it shall be with a flood, And till the end of the war desolations are determined.   NKJV

 

The 483 years are equal to 173880 days   62 (weeks) and 7 (weeks)

7 Weeks, or 49 days  is what it took Nehemiah to rebuild the city. As the prophecy says, it was in troubled times. (see Ezra 9-10) (Nehemiah 1-2)

. After 69 weeks, Messiah will be cut off (Jesus was crucified)

. Jerusalem will be destroyed. (in AD 70 it happened)

IT WAS 173880 DAYS FROM  NEHEMIAH 2 TIL LUKE 19 -  445BC to 32AD. 

2 Tim 2:15   Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

 

God expects us to know and understand also.

 

When Jesus rode into Jerusalem on the 10th of Nissan, He knew He was GOD’s Passover Lamb that the people should choose, (but they didn’t) so GOD let His lamb be sacrificed on the 14th at twilight. 

 

Paul told us in 1 Cor 5:7  For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed. 

Look at Exodus 12:   1 The LORD said to Moses and Aaron in Egypt, 2 "This month is to be for you the first month, the first month of your year. 3 Tell the whole community of Israel that on the tenth day of this month each man is to take/choose a lamb for his family, one for each household. 4 If any household is too small for a whole lamb, they must share one with their nearest neighbor, having taken into account the number of people there are. You are to determine the amount of lamb needed in accordance with what each person will eat. 5 The animals you choose must be year-old males without defect, and you may take them from the sheep or the goats. 6 Take care of them until the fourteenth day of the month, when all the people of the community of Israel must slaughter them at twilight. 7 Then they are to take some of the blood and put it on the sides and tops of the doorframes of the houses where they eat the lambs. 8 That same night they are to eat the meat roasted over the fire, along with bitter herbs, and bread made without yeast. 9 Do not eat the meat raw or cooked in water, but roast it over the fire—head, legs and inner parts. 10 Do not leave any of it till morning; if some is left till morning, you must burn it. 11 This is how you are to eat it: with your cloak tucked into your belt, your sandals on your feet and your staff in your hand. Eat it in haste; it is the LORD's Passover.

 

Three days later He arose from the grave, on the 17th Sunday morning.

 

Now look at this:  Genesis 8:1  But God remembered Noah and all the wild animals and the livestock that were with him in the ark, and he sent a wind over the earth, and the waters receded. 2 Now the springs of the deep and the floodgates of the heavens had been closed, and the rain had stopped falling from the sky. 3 The water receded steadily from the earth. At the end of the hundred and fifty days the water had gone down, 4 and on the seventeenth day of the seventh month the ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat.

Now look at Exodus 14:21 this was 3 days after the Passover meal in Egypt.

(you can count the 3 camps to be sure)

21 Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and all that night the LORD drove the sea back with a strong east wind and turned it into dry land. The waters were divided, 22 and the Israelites went through the sea on dry ground, with a wall of water on their right and on their left.

It was on the 17th they passed through the Red sea to safety…..

The Ark rested on the 17th and brought them to safety.

And Jesus conquered death, hell and the grave on the 17th  and has brought us into His safety..

Do you think God knew about all that happening on the 17th?
