Shadowland: Redemption: Week 13
The Daily Sacrifice
Pink and many other commentators assert that Jesus was crucified at
the time the passover lambs were killed. Like the alleged 400 years in
Egypt, the text contradicts this. E.g.
Mark 14:12 and
Luke 22:7 explicitly
say the disciples prepared the Passover meal the day before the
crucifixion. What did happen at the 9th hour (3 pm) when Jesus dies, according
to the Talmud (written by the Pharisees doing it), Josephus,
and Phio, was the the Daily Sacrifice prescribed in
Number 28:4. The
liturgy at the daily offering was the Eighteen Benedictions, which
Their prayers were being fulfilled as they spoke them. Thanks to
Brant Pitre for noting this.
- "You, O Lord, are mighty forever, you revive the dead, you have the power
to save. You sustain the living with lovingkindness, you revive the dead with
great mercy, you support the falling, heal the sick, set free the bound and
keep faith with those who sleep in the dust... Who resembles you, a king who
puts to death and restores to life, and causes salvation to flourish? And you
are certain to revive the dead. Blessed are you, O Lord, who revives the dead."
- "Forgive us, O our Father, for we have sinned; pardon us, O our King, for
we have transgressed; for you pardon and forgive. Blessed are you, O Lord, who
is merciful and always ready to forgive." (6th Benediction)
- "Look upon our affliction and plead our cause,and redeem us speedily for
your name's sake, for you are a mighty redeemer. Blessed are you, O Lord, the
redeemer of Israel." (7th Benediction)
- "Speedily cause the offspring of your servant David to flourish, and let
him be exalted by your saving power, for we wait all day long for your
salvation. Blessed are you, O Lord, who causes salvation to flourish." (15th
The Red Sea
- 14:2 From Rameses, it is about 5 miles to Succoth in Egypt, 5 miles to
Etham, and 10 miles to Pi Hahiroth. They left Rameses early Friday
12:31), and arrived at Pi Hahiroth opposite Baal-zephon late
- 14:4 "the Egyptians will know that I am the Lord" - and by extension,
all the world, as Egypt is a type of the world.
- 14:11 "no graves in Egypt" - there were indeed no graves in Egypt.
They had all been used in haste as
by the Egyptians.
- 14:13 "stand still" - as Pharaoh could see, their own efforts were
- 14:21 the crossing took all night
- 14:22 "and the Israelites went through the sea on dry ground" - "by
faith the people passed through the Red Sea"
Since it was by faith, it is implied that the sea did not
open all the way across so they could see their way. For Joshua, the
Jordan did not open up until the priests set foot in the water.
- 14:24 "last watch of the night" - early Sunday morning. Passing through
the water is a type of death. Through death, He broke the power of him
who had the power of death.
