As Jonah was 3 Days & 3 Nights! |Passion Week 2021—Good Friday to U!

Excerpts from this week’s studies

Now the LORD had prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights. Jonah 1:17

..”because just as Jonah was in the stomach of the sea creature for three days and three nights, so the Son of Man will be in the heart of the earth for three days and three nights.”— Jesus in Matthew 12:40 ISV

The Jews have the Feasts of Passover & Unleavened bread successively. This means that the 14th day to sacrifice the Passover Lamb would have been on Wednesday into Thursday during the last week of Jesus’ earthly ministry.

Jesus The First Fruits conquered Death

And Unleavened Bread Feast Thursday evening. So Jesus would have been tried during the wee hours of Thursday & crucified by 9 am the same day.

Jesus would have died on the cross at the exact time the Passover’s closing sacrifice for the whole nation of Israel at 3pm. While all of the 2 million plus people in Jerusalem there for the Holy Feasts were singing Psalm 118. All while the Holiest place on earth for the Jews was rocking & rolling from an earthquake that ripped the veil of the curtain from the top to the floor!

Now if He died on Thursday & Resurrected on Sunday…Based on the Jewish Sunset to sunset start & finish of the day…Thursday-Friday, Friday-Saturday, Saturday-Sunday… would give us 3 days & 3 nights… Exactly what Jesus said in Matthew 12:40, 26:61, 27:62-64; Mark 8:31, 14:58,

Fellow Brethren, our faith is resoundingly precise & true. There is no other Historical Figure like Jesus The Messiah of the world! He came exactly at the time the scriptures said. He entered Jerusalem & was hailed as the King of the Jews. He died at exactly the perfect time when the last sacrificial lamb was being killed for the sins of all of Israel.

Oh, & Jesus gave up His Spirit as the 2 million plus visitors in Jerusalem were singing Psalm 118 which was part of the Hallel group of Psalms sung during this time…The right Hand of YHWH…The Chief Cornerstone!… again, no one & nothing in time & space could put this together & fulfill that many prophecies unless He was the Son of the Living God!

Thanksgiving for the LORD’S Saving Goodness.

1Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good;
            For His lovingkindness is everlasting.
      2Oh let Israel say,
            “His lovingkindness is everlasting.”

      3Oh let the house of Aaron say,
            “His lovingkindness is everlasting.”

      4Oh let those who fear the LORD say,
            “His lovingkindness is everlasting.”

      5From my distress I called upon the LORD;
            The LORD answered me and set me in a large place.

      6The LORD is for me; I will not fear;
            What can man do to me?

      7The LORD is for me among those who help me;
            Therefore I will look with satisfaction on those who hate me.

      8It is better to take refuge in the LORD
            Than to trust in man.

      9It is better to take refuge in the LORD
            Than to trust in princes.

      10All nations surrounded me;
            In the name of the LORD I will surely cut them off.

      11They surrounded me, yes, they surrounded me;
            In the name of the LORD I will surely cut them off.

      12They surrounded me like bees;
            They were extinguished as a fire of thorns;
            In the name of the LORD I will surely cut them off.

      13You pushed me violently so that I was falling,
            But the LORD helped me.

      14The LORD is my strength and song,
            And He has become my salvation.

      15The sound of joyful shouting and salvation is in the tents of the righteous;
            The right hand of the LORD does valiantly.

      16The right hand of the LORD is exalted;
            The right hand of the LORD does valiantly.

      17I will not die, but live,
            And tell of the works of the LORD.

      18The LORD has disciplined me severely,
            But He has not given me over to death.

      19Open to me the gates of righteousness;
            I shall enter through them, I shall give thanks to the LORD.

      20This is the gate of the LORD;
            The righteous will enter through it.

      21I shall give thanks to You, for You have answered me,
            And You have become my salvation.

      22The stone which the builders rejected
            Has become the chief corner stone.

      23This is the LORD’S doing;
            It is marvelous in our eyes.

      24This is the day which the LORD has made;
            Let us rejoice and be glad in it.

      25O LORD, do save, we beseech You;
            O LORD, we beseech You, do send prosperity!

      26Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the LORD;
            We have blessed you from the house of the LORD.

      27The LORD is God, and He has given us light;
            Bind the festival sacrifice with cords to the horns of the altar.

      28You are my God, and I give thanks to You;
            You are my God, I extol You.

      29Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good;
            For His lovingkindness is everlasting.
