Spices for Burial.

We tend once more to over look these passages, because they perhaps no longer have any meaning to the Ekklesia?

But they are important to us and are still worth examining and we also see that in this case these were prepared by the woman of the ministry of Yeshua, Mary the Prostitute, Mary His Earthly mother two woman who had a deep love for Him!

The legal requirement of these spices had their roots in the customs of the Egyptians and were incorporated by the Y’hudim for their own requirement, the main being that of keeping flies away from the decomposing body.

Mark 15:47-16:1,    Luke 23:55-56,    Exodus 30:25-37,    2 Chronicles 16:14.

Day Two!

We tend to runover the story of Easter very quickly without taking a deeper look at the seven key events of the period from the afternoon on the first day Friday of atonement to the morning of the third day of the resurrection?

In Matthew/Levi 27:44-66 we have seven to nine distinct events from the mockers on crosses beside Him, His death, the conversion of the Roman soldier, the tearing of the Temple veil,  earthquake, the resurrection of the dead believers in Yerushalayim,  His burial, Joseph of Arimathea, the accusers implying that He was a deceiver and Pilate putting a guard in the garden!

Elohim moved and so did Yeshua and despite these events which were scary the religious men still believed that He was a deceiver and wanted their will done! This is the continued human condition of unbelief that we must face everyday with Ha ‘Olim! But we know and have the truth and we must continue to stand for it because faith is far greater than any achievement of man and his mocking of Elohim!

Matthew/Levi 27:38,  44,   45-50,   51-53,   54,   55-56,   57-61,   62-66,   28:13.

Yesha ‘Yahu 28:8,  26:19, 

 

‘The Garden Tomb.’

We have the immediate witnesses of the resurrection of Ha’Adon in the garden tomb. The women set out with the burial spices, only to find the tomb empty. They were then met by angels and eventually by the risen Lord, whom at first they thought was the gardeners.  Matthew/Levi 27:57-28:10,  Mark 15:42-16:11,  Luke 23:50-24:12,  Yochanan 19:38-20:18.

It was at the announcement of the reports of the resurrection of Yeshua, that the religious authorities in Yerushalyim told the guards to spread lies about what had happened. Today these lies continue to be believed by the majority of Jewish people.  Matthew/Levi 28:11-15,.
