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.

Bar-Mitzvah.

We are not told mush about the childhood of Yeshua, but there are clues in this account of Him coming to the age of manhood. He was either 12-13 years old when as Ha’Torah required Him to be taken by His parents Mari and Yosef up to Yerushalayim.  Luke 2:42-46, 51.

Many forget very quickly that Beit Lechem was the home of Yosef and His birth place. he had been circumcised in the Temple on the eight day as was required. Yeshua was missing and one the third day they found Him in the Temple teaching, questioning the Rabbis. Luke 2:46-47.

This were perhaps the secret Talmidim Nakdimon and Yosef of Ramatayim, where challenged by this youth. He was setting a seed in them for the end of His life, the stake and the resurrection.  Yohanan chapter 3,.

Betrothed to Mari.

Yosef was the man that was to marry a young woman named Mari, Yosef was betrothed to her. That was the traditional way that Jewish people continue to go about getting married.

The process takes one year to complete, time to get everything planned and ready for the big day.

Mari was away visiting her sister Elishevah and on her return Yosef her husband to be, found her to be pregnant. It was a tremendous shock to him. He must of thought that she had been raped on the journey and was to afraid to tell him.

So he sought to do the right things by going and getting a divorce in secret. Yosef was a good man, so he did not want to bring scandal and shame on the family of Mari. He also did want her to be stoned to death outside the village for adultery.
