PESACH-EASTER. ONE.

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.

Victory.

Yeshua lay in the tomb of Yosef for three days, fulfilling the Scriptures and then He arose conquering the sting of death for us believers. There was complete confusion with His Talmidim, some believed like Kefa, but others did not take the word from women. While some just doubted all the stories and accounts, why after three years, perhaps it was fear of man that blinded them.

Yeshua appeared to them ‘Shalom, Peace be with you’ this happened three times. Yeshua carried out a miracle after His resurrection with the large catch of fish, Toma saw and felt the wounds of Yeshua, meanwhile Yeshua said that all who believe in Him must follow Him.

Yochanan 20:19,  21,  26,  28,  21:4-10,  22.

‘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,.
