Torah Passover


Torah Passover

It is a wonderment to me why some (quite a number) will not understand Passover in the context of Torah. Even tho they insist that all had to be fulfilled exactly to the instruction – Torah.

This is Torah;

Lev 23:5  In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is YHWH’s passover.
Lev 23:6  And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread unto YHWH: seven days ye must eat unleavened bread.

Notice the contrast between :5 ‘day’ vs :6 ‘days’ – Passover is 1 day while UlvBrd is 7 days.

Exo 12:3  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 the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house:
Exo 12:4  And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbour next unto his house take it according to the number of the souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb.
Exo 12:5  Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats:
Exo 12:6  And ye shall keep it up **until** the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening.

Evening starts the Hebrew/Genesis day

Gen 1:5  And Elohim called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day. (:8, 13, 19, 23, 31) – (evening starts the Hebrew/Genesis day)

The English word **until** in Ex.12: 6  is the Hebrew <ad> – both meanings do include the definition consistent with – ‘up to but not including’.

Therefore the lamb selected on the 10th was to be kept live **until** the 14th – in other words the lamb selected on the 10th was to be kept live *till* the 13th but killed immediately on that 14th evening starting that Hebrew/Genesis day.

The following is a brief synopsis of the New Testament/Covenant Passover crucifixion event.

The 10th of Abib – Known as the ‘Triumphal Entry’ – The Lamb Selection – Yahshua

The 13th of Abib – (the 3rd Day – Tuesday afternoon)

Luk 22:8  And he (Yahshua) sent Peter and John, saying, Go and prepare us the passover, that we may eat.
Luk 22:9  And they said unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare?  … Luk 22:10-13 – Sunset on 13th ie the next day

The 14th of Abib – (the 4th Day – aprox. Wednesday )

Luk 22:14  And when the hour was come, he sat down, and the twelve apostles with him.
Luk 22:15  And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer:

He ate at the evening beginning of the Passover Abib 14 day

The events of this 14th of Abib are as follows (are an approximation)

Evening/nite starts the 14th
– there still is the rest of the 24 hr day to go
Evening – Assemble for Passover – still the 14th
Late Evening – Eats the Passover – still the 14th
Night – Gives the Bread & Wine  – still the 14th
Late nite – Mt of Olives/ Garden of Gethsemane – still the 14th
Mid nite – Taken by the Crowd – Judas Kiss – still the 14th
Wee Hours – Yahshua in custody – still the 14th
Peter denies Yahshua – still the 14th
Morning – interrogated by Pontious Pilate – still the 14th
Late Morning – beaten & scourged – still the 14th
Noon – makes way to Cross/Stake – still the 14th
Afternoon – Crucified – still the 14th
He died that mid afternoon – still the 14th
Had to be taken off the cross as evening approached
*****************You got it – still the 14th**************************
Put into the Tomb  – still the 14th

Because of the Sabbath – The 1st day Feast of UlvBrd – at evening – the 15th of Abib

Le 23:7 In the first day (of UnlBrd :6) ye shall have an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein. (a Sabbath)
8 But ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto YHWH seven days: in the seventh day is an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein. (a Sabbath)

So – Was it Passover? – Yahshua said it was – Was He confused on the concept?

He said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer:

Proves Yahshua had Passover meal before His crucifixion
*******(Feel free to disregard at your own peril)

**passover** – Abib 14 Night then Day – the same afternoon Abib 14 Day of Yahshua’s crucifixion

Luk 23:54 And that day (still Abib 14 ) was the preparation, and the sabbath (now Abib 15 ) drew on.

Joh 19:31 The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation (still Abib 14 ), that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day (now Abib 15 ), (for that sabbath day was an high day, – Abib 15 – 1st day of UnlBrd like Lev.23:6 directly says)

Now – slice that another way

Yahshua clearly eats Passover on Abib 14 according to the command just like Lev.23:5 directly says – (this is a Memorial [Ex.12:14] not a Sabbath)

And has to be off the cross before the coming Sabbath – a high day (Abib 15 – 1st day of UnlBrd {an Annual Sabbath} like Lev.23:6 directly says)

This is the mind of Torah! … This is as-per Torah!

By the witness of Torah, the NT & Yahshua; saying/doing/eating Passover on Abib 15 is incorrect therefore WRONG! – it is following the notions of religious spirit Jews – lying Pharisees and Levitical Minded Imaginations of the Rabbis (Mt.23:2-3)

To those who insist that he had to die at the time of the lambs – You have a problem – The Pharisees were not following Torah (and still do not thru the Rabbis and even Rabbinic minded Messianic) – they imagine the Passover meal on the 15th of Abib killing lambs on the end of the 14th instead of the beginning (evening) as Torah instructs.

Yahshua did say at Lk 22:19-20 This bread is my body, This wine is my blood – Think about it – The Ex.12 lamb – its body & blood was a substitute looking forward to Yahshua – Yahshua during the Passover meal was initiating a new substitute in accordance to the New Covenant He had just declared (Lk 22:20 from Jer.31:31) and ratified with the same bread & wine which happens to constitute a Covenant Confirming Meal (see – Passover Wedding Reception). That same bread & wine representing His Body & His Blood that were shed by crucifixion that same Passover Abib 14 afternoon.

So – All was fully filled during the Passover meal of Yahshua – At the Torah time including the question of His Body & His Blood

Yah’s Esteem
