1Cor 5:7 says, "Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ OUR PASSOVER is sacrificed for us".
The Thursday Crucifixion is locked in place from both sides. Six days before the Passover, Jesus came to Bethany. Three days and three nights in the heart of the Earth (Mt. 12:40). Rise again the third day (Luke 24:7), "when the sabbath was past" (Mk. 16:1) etc.
Taking a fresh look at what did Jesus really mean when He said the following and how it corresponds with Psalm 119
the Law. 17 "Do not think that I came to destroy the Law. or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill.
18 "For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the Law. till all is fulfilled.
19 "Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments., and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven."
This scriptures is backed up by (Luke 16:16-17)
Now what I have done is rearranged the verses of Psalm 119 to make greater impact, so that it becomes easier to understand what Jesus really said.
