NASA's Phoenix Lander Confirms Ice Exists On Mars

...there is plenty of ice near the Phoenix landing site. Smith says you only have to scrape away two inches of dirt to see it.

My note: I thought they would find out for sure that Mars once had seas. I think that Mars got hit hard when Satan's planet Rahab was split to pieces forming our Asteroid Belt. Lot's of water was lost from Mars. Earth's atmosphere still gets hit by water comets every day. Maybe that water originally came from Mars and Rahab.

Incoming e-mail, Re: PASSOVER VERSE

PLEASE SEE MY COMMENTS IN ALL CAPS BELOW. (I marked his answers ***)

As strange as it may seem, I think Jesus was tried and crucified between the evenings on the Eve of Passover, the Preparation Day of the Passover.

Do you want to know why? I believe the Bible, in its original manuscripts, meant what it said. Translations can have errors, but they are few and far between. The copper scroll of Isaiah shows us one. Isa 53:9 (KJV) says, "And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death." He actually made his grave with the rich, and was with the wicked in his death.

Mark 14:2 (LITV) couldn't be clearer. It bluntly says, "NOT DURING THE FEAST, lest there will be a tumult of the people." Therefore, to me, Jesus was not crucified on Passover.

***AS YOU SHOULD KNOW THE 15TH WAS THE START OF THE FEAST OF UNLEAVENED BREAD........THE 15th WAS A HIGH HOLY DAY........ONE OF COMMANDED ASSEMBLY.......THE 14TH WAS NOT. THEREFORE IT WOULD HAVE UPSET THE JEWS IF JESUS WAS TAKEN ON THE 15TH. HOW PLAIN........PLEASE, MARILYN......WHY CAN'T YOU SEE THIS. YES IT COULD NOT BE MUCH CLEARER.

John 18:28 (LITV) is clear. It says, "they led Jesus from Caiaphas into the praetorium, and it was early. and THEY DID NOT ENTER INTO THE PRAETORIUM THAT THEY MIGHT EAT THE PASSOVER." To me, the Passover was still future.

***YES, THE EATING OF THE PASSOVER WOULD BE THE NIGHT OF THE 15TH.......JUST LIKE IN EGYPT.......AS THE NIGHT PORTION OF THE 15TH STARTED.

***THE PASSOVER (SACRIFICE/JESUS/THE LAMBS) WAS KILLED ON THE 14TH OF NISAN AND SO WAS JESUS. THE ABOVE VERSE TOOK PLACE ON NISAN 14........YOU HAVE GOT TO UNDERSTAND THAT THE WORD ''PASSOVER'' CAN BE USED IN REFERENCE TO THE PREPARATION OF THE PASSOVER WHICH IS THE KILLING OF THE PASSOVER LAMB ON THE 14TH AND THEN THE EATING OF THE PASSOVER LAMB ON THE NIGHT OF THE 15TH. PLEASE..........

The clincher: John 19:13-16 (LITV) says, "Pilate led Jesus out. And he sat down on the judgment seat, at a place called The Pavement, but in Hebrew, Gabbatha. And IT WAS THE PREPARATION OF THE PASSOVER". Therefore, to me, Jesus was crucified on the Preparation of the Passover, the Eve of Passover, Nisan 13, the day before the Passover.

***SEE ABOVE COMMENT. I SHOWED YOU A VERY CLEAR VERSE IN MY PRIOR EMAIL THAT LAMBS WERE KILLED ON THE 14TH OF NISAN.......FROM THE OT. LEV 23 DOES NOT SAY THE LAMBS WERE KILLED ON THE 13TH BUT ON THE 14TH. FOR THE NTH TIME, THE ''PREPARATION OF THE PASSOVER'' WAS ON THE 14TH OF NISAN.......''PREPATATION'' AS IN PREPARING THE MEAL TO BE EATEN ON THE NIGHT OF THE 15TH. IN THE ABOVE VERSE THE PREPARATION OF THE PASSOVER IS THE 14TH OF NISAN. JESUS HAD......HAD ...HAD TO FULFILL THE LAW AND THE LAMBS WERE SLAIN ON THE 14TH OF NISAN. NOT ONLY DO THE OT AND NT SCRIPTURES CONFIRM THIS, BUT THE PRACTICE OF THE JEWS CONFIRM IT IN ALL THEIR WRITINGS.......

***THIS IS A ''MENTAL'' BLOCK FOR YOU. TRY TO OVERCOME IT.

John 19:31 says, "SINCE IT WAS PREPARATION, that the bodies not remain on the cross on the sabbath, for great was the day of that sabbath (Passover), the Jews asked Pilate that their legs might be broken and they be taken away." To me, it was the day of preparation.

***SINCE YOU HAVE THE WRONG DAY FOR THE CROSS YOU ALSO HAVE THE WRONG YEAR FOR THE CROSS. FRIDAY OF 33 AD WAS NISAN 14. THE PREPARATION OF THE PASSOVER IS THE 14TH OF NISSAN. THE WEEKLY SABBATH THAT YEAR WAS THE SAME DAY AS THE 15TH OF NISAN .......A HIGH HOLY DAY. THE 14TH IS NOT A DAY OF COMMANDED ASSEMBLY........SEE ENTIRE LIST OF SUCH IN LEV. 23 .......IT TELLS SPECIFICALLY WHICH DAYS WERE COMMANDED ASSEMBLIES. THE 14 OF NISAN .........BEING THE PREPARATION OF THE PASSOVER WAS A WORK DAY OF KILLING THE LAMBS.

John 19:42 says, "There, then, because of THE PREPARATION OF THE JEWS, because the tomb was near, they put Jesus." It is still the day of preparation.

***YES THE 14TH OF NISAN IS THE PREPARATION OF THE JEWISH PASSOVER. JESUS WAS KILLED ON THE 14TH OF NISAN AT 3PM AND THEY HAD TO BURY HIM BEFORE NIGHTFALL BECAUSE THAT STARTED A HIGH HOLY DAY OF THE 15TH.

Mt 27:62-64 (LITV) says, "ON THE MORROW(i.e., Passover, Nisan 14), WHICH IS AFTER THE PREPARATION (Nisan 13, the day of the crucifixion), the chief priests and the Pharisees were assembled to Pilate, saying, Sir, we have recalled that that deceiver while living said, After three days (i.e., on Sunday, after Thursday, Friday and Saturday) I will rise. Therefore, command that the grave be secured until the third day". To me, the day of preparation still fits the crucifixion. THIS WOULD BE NISAN 15

Mark 15:42,43 (LITV) says, "And it becoming evening already, SINCE IT WAS THE PREPARATION, THAT IS, THE DAY BEFORE SABBATH (i.e., before the high sabbath, Passover), Joseph of Arimathea came, an honorable councillor, who himself was also waiting for the kingdom of God. And taking courage, he went in to Pilate and begged the body of Jesus." The day of preparation still fits.

***THE PREPARATION OF THE PASSOVER IS ON NISAN 14TH.....LAMBS WERE KILLED ON THIS DAY OF THE 14TH.......ATTESTED TO BY ALL JEWISH HISTORY AND WRITINGS......THE 14 IS NOT A HIGH DAY OF COMMANDED ASSEMBLY..........THE 15TH IS.

Luke 23:53,54 (LITV) says,"And taking it (the body of Jesus) down, he wrapped it in linen, and placed it in a quarried tomb, where no one was ever yet laid. AND IT WAS PREPARATION DAY, and a sabbath (Passover) was coming on." That is point blank. It was preparation day. How can anyone get around this?

***YES IT WAS THE 14TH DAY. THE PASSOVER LAMB HAD BEEN SLAIN ON THIS DAY. THE SABBATH OF THE HIGH HOLY DAY OF THE 15TH WAS COMING ON.........

Jesus died at the same time the Passover lambs had been killed all along, about 3 PM, "BETWEEN THE EVENINGS" on the Preparation of the Passover.

Mt. 27:45-50 (LITV) says, "from the sixth hour (noon, Jewish time) there was darkness over all the land until THE NINTH HOUR (3 PM). And about the ninth hour, Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani; that is, "My God, My God, why did You forsake Me? And hearing, some of those standing there said, This one calls Elijah. And at once, one of them running and taking a sponge, and filling it with "vinegar," put it on a reed and "gave drink to Him. But the rest said, Let be; let us see if Elijah is coming to save Him. And crying again with a loud voice, JESUS RELEASED HIS SPIRIT." It was about 3 PM. That fits the Eve of Passover.

Lev 23:31,32 (LITV) shows us how any feast day has to be kept. "YOU SHALL DO NO WORK; IT IS A NEVER ENDING STATUTE THROUGHOUT YOUR GENERATIONS, in all your dwellings. It (the Day of Atonement, Tishri 10) is a sabbath of rest to you, and you shall humble your souls in the ninth of the month at evening; from evening until evening you shall keep your sabbath."

The Passover is a high day, a day of complete rest from 6 PM on Nisan 13 to 6 PM on Nisan 14. They can't cook. Therefore, the Passover lamb had to be killed, and roasted BETWEEN THE EVENINGS ON THE DAY OF PREPARATION.

***NO THE 14TH IS NOT A REST DAY . THAT IS COMPLETELY WRONG........READ LEV 23 FOR SPECIFICS ON WHICH DAYS ARE HIGH HOLY DAYS OF COMMANDED ASSEMBLY.

John 19:31 (KJV) says, "The Jews therefore, because IT WAS THE PREPARATION, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day, (for that sabbath day was AN HIGH DAY,) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away." The (LITV) says, "Then, since IT WAS PREPARATION, that the bodies not remain on the cross on the sabbath, for GREAT WAS THE DAY OF THAT SABBATH (because it was Passover, the greatest of their annual Sabbaths), the Jews asked Pilate that their legs might be broken and they be taken away." SEE ABOVE COMMENTS

Jesus was tried by the Sanhedrin. "According to the Tosephta' Sanhedrin 7 1: "THERE WERE NO SITTINGS ON SABBATHS OR FEAST DAYS." http://www.bible-history.com/isbe/S/SANHEDRIN/

There were no meetings on the weekly Sabbaths or the annual Sabbaths, Passover, Unleavened Bread and Firstfruits. To me, the only day the Sanhedrin could legally meet to try Jesus was Thursday, Nisan 13, the Eve of Passover, the Preparation Day of the Passover, when they prepared the food for Passover, which was an annual high sabbath, a holy convocation, a day of total rest.

Why not Wednesday? The lambs were kept up to Nisan 14, which was Friday. Also, Mt 12:40 (LITV) says, "even as "Jonah was in the belly of the huge fish three days and three nights," so shall the Son of Man be in the heart of the earth three days and three nights." These were Thursday (day), Friday (night then day), Saturday (night then day), and Sunday (night). A Wednesday crucifixion will not work, neither will a Friday crucifixion. That leaves me with Thursday, Nisan 13. 3790 (April 6, 30 AD).

The Babylonian Talmud has it right. It says, "THEY HUNG HIM ON THE EVE OF PESAH.". Then why do the Jewish Calendars list Nisan 15 as Passover? Is it a deliberate deception, or an unwitting one?

***NO NO NO.......THE JEWS OF ALL PEOPLE KNOW WHICH DAY IS PASSOVER. JUST THINK......DO THEY KNOW WHICH DAY IS THE SABBATH? THE JEWS CALL NISAN 15 ''PASSOVER'' .........AND AS I HAVE EXPLAINED TO YOU ..........OVER AND OVER......IT IS BECAUSE THE DEATH ANGEL PASSED OVER ON THE NIGHT OF THE 15TH.......AFTER THE LAMB WAS SLAIN ON THE 14TH WHICH IS THE PREPARATION OF THE PASSOVER OR AS THE ABOVE VERSE SAYS ''THE EVE OF PASSOVER''......THE 14TH OF NISAN.

***HERE IS THE PROBLEM. IF JESUS DID NOT FULFILL THE LAW TO THE LETTER RE THE PASSOVER SACRIFICE THEN HE WAS NOT THE PASSOVER SACRIFICE. BUT HE DID. YOU SAY HE WAS KILLED ON THE 13TH. THE SCRIPTURES SAY HE WAS KILLED ON THE 14 OF NISAN. I HAVE EXPLAINED IT AS CLEAR AND AS PATIENT AS I CAN. SO WHERE IS THE PROBLEM? SORRY IF I SOUND SO IMPATIENT............I WOULD REALLY LIKE YOU TO SEE THIS.....IN THIS LIFE ......AND NOT HAVE TO HAVE IT EXPLAINED AGAIN IN THE NEXT LIFE. IS THERE STUBBORNESS HERE? UNWILLING TO CHANGE? WHAT ?

The "Tractate Sanhedrin" in the Babylonian Talmud...says, "ON THE EVE OF PESAH THEY HUNG JESHU [the Nazarene]. And the crier went forth before him forty days (saying), [Jeshu the Nazarene] goeth forth to be stoned, because he hath practiced magic and deceived and led astray Israel. Any one who knoweth aught in his favour, let him come and declare concerning him. And they found naught in his favour. And THEY HUNG HIM ON THE EVE OF PESAH." (Sanhedrin 43a GBT VII.pg. 181; SBT pg. 281). To me, the Eve of Pesah/Pesach agrees with Scripture. SEE ABOVE THE EVE OF PESAH IS THE 14TH OF NISAN

"The ancient Jewish Talmud in a secret book called *Tol'doth Yeshua,* said to have been written around 33AD and passed down by the Babylonian Masoretes, Jesus is referred to as "Ben Pandera" (Son of Pandera). In the Babylonian Talmud it is mentioned about Jesus ... "AND HANGED HIM ON THE EVE OF PASSOVER;'' The Talmud refers to Jesus as Ben Pandera or Ben Pantere (a corruption of the Greek word 'parthenos, meaning "SON OF THE VIRGIN;" In the Baraila it is recorded "ON THE EVE OF PASSOVER THEY HANGED YESHUA (of Nazareth);" In the Amoa it records "And do you suppose that for (Yeshu of Nazareth) there was any right of appeal;?" Sanhedrin 43a also references the disciples of Jesus; The Toseft mentions, and "Yeshu ben Pantere taught me"" (http://jesus-messiah.com/studies/history.html). I too believe that Yeshua was crucified on the Eve of Passover.

***BUT YOU CONCLUDE THAT WAS THE 13TH. THERE IS NOT ONE VERSE IN THE OT THAT SAYS IT WAS ON THE 13TH. I GAVE YOU AN OT VERSE SHOWING......PROVING THAT THE LAMB WAS KILLED ON THE 14TH OF NISAN.........WHAT DO YOU ''DO'' WITH THAT?

***CONCLUSION.......THE EVE OF PASSOVER IS THE 14TH. JEWS CALL THE 15TH PASSOVER AS I HAVE EXPLAINED TO YOU.

Re killing the lamb at the first Passover in Egypt, Ex. 12:6 (Darby) says, "ye shall keep it until ('ad', up to) the fourteenth day of this month; and the whole congregation of the assembly of Israel shall KILL IT BETWEEN THE TWO EVENINGS." The YLT says, "it hath become a charge to you, until ('ad', up to) the fourteenth day of this month, and the whole assembly of the company of Israel have SLAUGHTERED IT BETWEEN THE EVENINGS". There are two evenings, noon to 3 PM, and 3 PM to 6 PM. 3 PM fits between the two evenings perfectly.

Ex. 12:6-14 (LITV) says, "keep until ('ad', up to) the fourteenth day of this month (Nisan 13 is the day that until 6 PM stretches up to Passover, Nisan 14). And all the assembly of the congregation of Israel shall KILL IT BETWEEN THE EVENINGS (i.e., about 3 PM on Nisan 13). And they shall take from the blood, and put it on the two side doorposts and on the upper doorpost, on the houses in which they eat it. And they shall eat the flesh in THIS NIGHT (Nisan 14, between 6 PM and midnight), roasted with fire, and they shall eat it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs. Do not eat it raw, or at all boiled in water, but roasted with fire; its head with its legs and with its inward parts. And you shall not leave any of it until morning. And you shall burn with fire that left from it until morning. And you shall eat it this way: with your loins girded, your sandals on your feet, and your staff in your hand. And you shall eat it in haste. It is the Passover to Jehovah. And I will pass through in the land of Egypt IN THIS NIGHT (i.e., during the 1st 12 hours of Nisan 14). And I will (i.e., at midnight on Nisan 14) strike every first-born in the land of Egypt, from man even to livestock. And I will execute judgments on all the gods of Egypt. I am Jehovah! And the blood shall be a sign to you, on the houses where you are. And I will see the blood, and I will pass over you. And the plague shall not be on you to destroy, when I strike in the land of Egypt. And the day (Passover, Nisan 14) shall be a memorial for you. And you shall celebrate it as a feast to Jehovah, for your generations. You shall celebrate it as a law forever."

Remember that there were 12 hours of the night that preceeded the 12 hours of the day. Ex 12:29-31 says, "AT MIDNIGHT (i.e., at the 6th hour of the night) the LORD smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt. And Pharaoh rose up IN THE NIGHT (i.e., between midnight and 6 AM), he, and all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt; for there was not a house where there was not one dead. And he called for Moses and Aaron BY NIGHT (i.e., between midnight and 6 AM when Nisan 15 began), and said, Rise up, and get you forth from among my people, both ye and the children of Israel; and go". They were commanded to go while it was still Nisan 14.

At this point, some of the night and the whole 12 hours of the daytime part of Nisan 14 were still before them. They packed up their things and departed from their houses after 6 AM, the morning of Nisan 14, arrived. They traveled during the daylight portion of Nisan 14, then Nisan 15 began at 6 PM. Of necessity, they ate unleavened bread for the next seven 24-hour days, Nisan 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20 and 21.

The death angel came at midnight, which was only 6 hours after Nisan 14 began at 6 PM on Nisan 13.

There were 12 hours of night and then 12 hours of day for each date.
The 24 hrs. of Nisan 14 ran from 6 PM on Nisan 13 to 6 PM on Nisan 14.
The 24 hrs. of Nisan 15 ran from 6 PM on Nisan 14 to 6 PM on Nisan 15.

Lev 23:27-32 shows us how to keep a Feast Day. Tishri 10, the Day of Atonement, runs from 6 PM on Tishri 9 to 6 PM on Tishri 10. The LITV says, "Also, on the tenth of this seventh month shall be a day of atonement; there shall be a holy gathering, and you shall humble your souls and shall bring a fire offering to Jehovah. And YOU SHALL DO NO WORK IN THIS SAME DAY, for it is a day of atonement, to atone for you before Jehovah your God. For any person who is not humbled in this same day shall be cut off from his people. And ANY PERSON WHO DOES ANY WORK IN THIS SAME DAY, I SHALL EVEN DESTROY THAT PERSON from the midst of his people. YOU SHALL DO NO WORK; IT IS A NEVER ENDING STATUTE THROUGHOUT YOUR GENERATIONS, IN ALL YOUR DWELLINGS." IT IS A SABBATH OF REST TO YOU, AND YOU SHALL HUMBLE YOUR SOUL IN THE NINTH OF THE MONTH AT EVENING, FROM EVENING UNTIL EVENING YOU SHALL KEEP YOUR SABBATH." They couldn't work on Passover, either.

Tishri 10 begins at 6 PM on Tishri 9, and ends at 6 PM on Tishri 10. The 12 hours of night comes before the 12 hours of day for every date.

Therefore, Passover is kept from 6 PM on Nisan 13 to 6 PM on Nisan 14. Midnight is only 6 hours after Nisan 14 begins. It is as in Gen. 1:5 (LITV), "And God called the light, Day. And He called the darkness, Night. And there was evening, and there was morning the first day."

> > 2Ch 30:15 Then they killed the passover on the fourteenth day of the second month: and the priests and the Levites were ashamed, and sanctified themselves, and brought in the burnt offerings into the house of the LORD.

> > The passover was killed on the 14th day.......just as it says in Lev. 23. You say it was killed on the 13th and that is just plain wrong.

2Ch 30:15-20 (LITV) shows that they didn't do it right that particular time. It says, "And they killed the passover offering on the fourteenth of the second month. And the priests and the Levites were ashamed, and sanctified themselves, and brought in burnt offerings to the house of Jehovah. And they stood in their place according to their ordinance, according to the Law of Moses the man of God. The priests were sprinkling the blood out of the hand of the Levites. For many in the assembly had not sanctified themselves, and the Levites were over the slaughtering of the passover offerings for everyone not clean, to sanctify them to Jehovah. For MANY OF THE PEOPLE, many from Ephraim, and Manasseh, Issachar, and Zebulun had not been cleansed, but ATE THE PASSOVER NOT AS WAS WRITTEN. But Hezekiah prayed for them, saying, O good Jehovah, atone for everyone who has prepared his heart to seek Jehovah God, the God of his fathers, yet not according to the cleansing of the sanctuary. And Jehovah listened to Hezekiah, and healed the people." (the rest of my original email is omitted)

***IT SAYS POINT BLANK........THEY KILLED THE PASSOVER LAMB ON THE 14TH .........WHY OH WHY WOULD YOU EVEN ATTEMPT TO EXPLAIN THAT AWAY? '' Then they killed the passover on the fourteenth day .....IF YOU TRY TO EXPLAIN THAT AWAY........I GIVE UP ON YOU. HOW CAN YOU SAY THEY ''DID NOT DO IT RIGHT THERE''.......THAT IS WRONG........IT SAYS ''ON THE 14TH''.

***THERE IS NO USE ME EVEN READING WHAT ELSE YOU WROTE BELOW.......IF YOU CANNOT SEE THIS FROM THE SCRIPTURES/JEWISH HISTORY/AND THE POINTS I SHOWED YOU CLEARLY ABOVE THEN YOU ARE DELIBERATELY TWISTING THE SCRIPTURES TO YOUR OWN ''REASONING''

***YE MARILYN. I TRIED AND ONE DAY YOU WILL REALIZE I TRIED.

My reply

I know you tried. I tried too. There are some things we can agree on and others that we can't, but we do agree on things that are most important.

> > THE 15th WAS A HIGH HOLY DAY........ONE OF COMMANDED ASSEMBLY.......THE 14TH WAS NOT

All seven feasts are holy gatherings upon which no work can be done.

Lev 23:2-8 (LITV) says, "THE APPOINTED FEASTS OF JEHOVAH WHICH YOU SHALL PROCLAIM, HOLY GATHERINGS, SHALL BE THESE...
THESE ARE APPOINTED SEASONS OF JEHOVAH, HOLY GATHERINGS which you shall proclaim in their appointed seasons: In the first month, ON THE FOURTEENTH OF THE MONTH, BETWEEN THE EVENINGS IS THE PASSOVER to Jehovah. And ON THE FIFTEENTH OF THIS MONTH IS THE FEAST OF UNLEAVENED BREAD to Jehovah; you shall eat unleavened things seven days. On the first day you shall have a HOLY GATHERING; YOU SHALL DO NO WORK of service; and you shall bring near a fire offering to Jehovah seven days; and the seventh day shall be a HOLY GATHERING; YOU SHALL DO NO WORK".

Lev. 23:21 says that FIRSTFRUITS also "is a HOLY GATHERING to you. YOU SHALL DO NO WORK of service. It is a never ending statute in all your dwellings throughout your generations."

Re the Feast of Trumpets, Lev 23:24,25 says, "In the seventh month, on the first of the month, a sabbath shall be to you, a call to a memorial, a HOLY GATHERING. YOU SHALL DO NO WORK".

Lev 23:27,28 says, "on the tenth of this seventh month shall be a DAY OF ATONEMENT; there shall be a HOLY GATHERING, and you shall humble your souls and shall bring a fire offering to Jehovah. And YOU SHALL DO NO WORK".

Lev 23:34-37 says, "In the FIFTEENTH day of this seventh month shall be a FEAST OF BOOTHS seven days to Jehovah. On the first day shall be a HOLY GATHERING; YOU SHALL DO NO WORK of service. Seven days you shall bring a fire offering to Jehovah; on the eighth day you shall have a HOLY GATHERING; and you shall bring the fire offering to Jehovah; it is a solemn assembly; YOU SHALL DO NO WORK of service. THESE ARE THE SET FEASTS OF JEHOVAH WHICH YOU SHALL PROCLAIM, HOLY GATHERINGS".

> > THE EATING OF THE PASSOVER WOULD BE THE NIGHT OF THE 15TH.......JUST LIKE IN EGYPT.......AS THE NIGHT PORTION OF THE 15TH STARTED.

They couldn't wait until Nisan 15. The Lord killed all the firstborn of Egypt at midnight 6 hours after the night of Nisan 14 began when the date changed from Nisan 13 to Nisan 14 at 6 PM.

Ex 12:6-8 says, "keep until the FOURTEENTH day of this month. And all the assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it between the evenings. And they shall take from the blood, and put it on the two side doorposts and on the upper doorpost, on the houses in which they eat it. And they shall EAT THE FLESH IN THIS NIGHT".

Ex 12:11,12 says, "eat it this way: with your loins girded, your sandals on your feet, and your staff in your hand. And you shall eat it in haste. IT IS THE PASSOVER to Jehovah. And I will pass through in the land of Egypt IN THIS NIGHT. And I will strike every first-born in the land of Egypt".

> > YOU ALSO HAVE THE WRONG YEAR FOR THE CROSS. FRIDAY OF 33 AD WAS NISAN 14.

The year 33 AD won't work. Herod began to build the Temple in 19/20 BC. The 46th year of construction was 27 AD, the year of the first miracle and the 1st Passover of Jesus' ministry.

After Jesus had made water wine, John 2:13-21 says, "the Passover of the Jews was near. And Jesus went up to Jerusalem. And He found those selling oxen and sheep and doves in the temple, and the money changers sitting. And making a whip out of ropes, He threw all out of the temple, both the sheep, and the oxen, and the money changers, pouring out the money and overturning the tables. And to the ones selling the doves, He said, Take these things from here! Do not make My Father's house a house of merchandise. And His disciples remembered that it was written, "The zeal of Your house has consumed Me." Then the Jews answered and said to Him, What sign do You show to us, since You do these things? Jesus said to them, Destroy this sanctuary, and in three days I will raise it up. Then the Jews said, THIS SANCTUARY WAS FORTY SIX YEARS BEING BUILT, and do You raise it up in three days? But He spoke about the sanctuary of His body."

> > THE 14TH OF NISAN IS THE PREPARATION OF THE JEWISH PASSOVER.

The 14th is Passover, a holy gathering on which no work could be done.

> > LAMBS WERE KILLED ON THIS DAY OF THE 14TH.......ATTESTED TO BY ALL JEWISH HISTORY AND WRITINGS

> > THE JEWS OF ALL PEOPLE KNOW WHICH DAY IS PASSOVER. JUST THINK......DO THEY KNOW WHICH DAY IS THE SABBATH? THE JEWS CALL NISAN 15 ''PASSOVER''

Maybe they do know something. In the "Tractate Sanhedrin" in the Babylonian Talmud, the Jews said, "ON THE EVE OF PESAH THEY HUNG JESHU." and in the Baraila, they said, "ON THE EVE OF PASSOVER THEY HANGED YESHUA." The Eve is the preceeding day.

What does Ex. 12:6-13 (LITV) mean to you? It says, "And it shall be for you to keep until the FOURTEENTH DAY of this month. And all the assembly of the congregation of Israel shall KILL IT BETWEEN THE EVENINGS. And they shall take from the blood, and put it on the two side doorposts and on the upper doorpost, on the houses in which they eat it. And they shall EAT THE FLESH IN THIS NIGHT, roasted with fire, and they shall eat it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs. Do not eat it raw, or at all boiled in water, but roasted with fire; its head with its legs and with its inward parts. And YOU SHALL NOT LEAVE ANY OF IT UNTIL MORNING. And you shall burn with fire that left from it until morning. And you shall eat it this way: with your loins girded, your sandals on your feet, and your staff in your hand. And you shall eat it in haste. IT IS THE PASSOVER to Jehovah. And I WILL PASS THROUGH IN THE LAND OF EGYPT IN THIS NIGHT."

Ex 12:29 says, "AND IT HAPPENED AT MIDNIGHT. Jehovah struck every first-born in the land of Egypt".

Do you agree that "between the two evenings" is about 3 PM? Nu. 28:4 (LITV) says, "You shall offer the one lamb in the morning, and you shall offer the other lamb BETWEEN THE TWO EVENINGS".

That type is perfect. Mark 15:33 And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour." Jesus died about the ninth hour, 3 PM. Agape
