Topic: Jesus’ Crucifixion Week

Home Page: Quantum Study Bible

Nisan is the first month on the Jewish Calendar. It is also called the month Abib.

The following dateline is the only option to capture every verse and insinuation in scripture. Furthermore; the only year that matches this timeline, according to http://www.cgsf.org/dbeattie/calendar is 31AD which fits within the Titus timeline years of his rule.

We focus on Jesus’ Crucifixion week four ways:
1) The first chart gives a simple overview of the events in their correct order.
2) The second chart is an elaboration of the week with insightful prophecies noted.
3) The third chart shows types and shadows surrounding these events.
4) The fourth chart explains step by step how the chart was created and verified.

It is awe striking that these events were prophesied as far back as Moses, ~1,500 yrs BC. King David wrote the prophetic Psalms ~1,000 yrs BC. Proving God lives in the present eternally knowing the past, present, and future simultaneously.

The Psalms foretelling the crucifixion of Jesus was written one thousand years earlier, and yet they describe the events perfectly. The laws describing the feasts and the preparations were described even earlier,written one thousand five hundred years earlier, given when the Hebrews left Egypt under Moses.

❶ Friday Nisan 9: The Anointing at Bethany.

  • Mary (Magdalene) anoints Jesus for His death with perfume at Simon the leper’s house.
  • Simon is probably one of the lepers that Jesus healed.
  • Simon was the name of Judas’ father. It can be neither refuted nor confirmed a connection between the two.
  • Lazarus, Mary and Martha are there as well as Judas and all the disciples.

❷ Saturday Nisan 10 (a sabbath) THE TRIUMPHAL ENTRY
From Bethany to Jerusalem – a sabbath’s day journey (~2 miles)

Behold, your King is coming to you; He is just and having salvation, Lowly and riding on a donkey, A colt, the foal of a donkey. [“Salvation” is the Hebrew word “Yeshua”, also the Hebrew name of Jesus].
    • In the ancient Biblical world, a leader rode on a horse if he was coming in war but a donkey to signify peace.
      • verify
    • Donkeys are not kosher and cannot be eaten by Jewish law, since they neither chew their cud nor have split hooves. But there is something special about them:
      • Now here is an interesting tidbit that everyone should know because it is one of many ways where Jewish feasts and Levitical Laws are prophetic: In this case, it foretells the arrival of the Jewish Messiah, Jesus. Jesus rode the colt of a donkey (male in its first year) into Jerusalem when He was declared King of the Jews.
      • The donkey is the one and only, single non-kosher animal whose firstborn is considered holy.
      • Kosher (clean) firstborn animals, such as a sheep or goats, was sacrificed in the Holy Temple and then eaten by the priests. Since donkeys are not kosher and they cannot be sacrificed in the Temple, what should be done with their firstborn?
        • The firstborn donkey MUST BE redeemed by a lamb.
          • Exodus 13:13 But every firstborn of a donkey you shall redeem with a lamb.

  • The Crowds Erupt in Praises On His Triumphal Entry: The meaning of throwing palm leaves in His path:
    • On October 29th 539 BC history would have its most peaceful military conquest of a major imperial city. Cyrus himself did not actually enter the gates of the city for over a month. On November 9, 539 BC, he rode through the Ishtar Gate while the masses of the city layered a pathway of green twigs welcoming him with their sign of peace and honor, acknowledgment and acceptance that he is king.” The same culture welcomed Jesus as King of the Jews. http://www.specialtyinterests.net/babylon.html#koldewey

  • Neaniskos: meaning he was in the prime of his life, root meaning is “fresh” figuratively, “regenerate”. The verb that is used, sunékolouthei, means “was following as a disciple” or “was accompanying.”
  • “Sindon” is a burial cloth. Used only here in Mark, and for Jesus’ linen burial cloth.
  • Like Jesus, He is accosted. Like Jesus, He leaves behind His powerful position in the Godhead without defending Himself. Like Jesus, He is left naked in His innocence, devoid of the power of His position, coming alongside Jesus as Jesus’ Paraclete (‘Comforter’ ‘Advocate’ or ‘Helper’. The term Paraclete most commonly refers to the Holy Spirit.) Paraclete literally means, in the Greek, “One called alongside.”
  • John 14:25 “These things I have spoken to you while being present with you. 26 But the “Helper”, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you. 27 Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. 28 You have heard Me say to you, ‘I am going away and coming back to you.’ If you loved Me, you would rejoice because I said, ‘I am going to the Father,’ for My Father is greater than I.

⓬ Jesus the Messiah and Jesus Barabbas

  • Barabbas’ Name:
    • Extra biblical historical writings mention Barabbas’ first name was “Jesus”.
    • “Barabbas” means “Son ie: Bar” of the “Father: Abba” – therefore Barabbas means “son of the father”.
    • The Jews had to choose between Jesus “son of the father” and Jesus “THE SON OF THE FATHER”.
    • Jesus Barabbas: “son of the father” is released.
    • Whereas: Jesus: THE Son of THE Father is spit on, beaten, and crucified.
  • There are TWO goats: The Sacrificial goat (Jesus) and the Scapegoat (Barabbas):
    • Barabbas is released into the wilderness of people where he disappears and becomes lost in history. Barabbas is the scapegoat. Barabbas “Es-scaped (scapegoat) death”.
      • Leviticus 16:21 Aaron shall lay both his hands on the head of the live goat, confess over it all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions, concerning all their sins, putting them on the head of the goat, and shall send it away into the wilderness by the hand of a suitable man. 22 The goat shall bear on itself all their iniquities to an uninhabited land; and he shall release the goat in the wilderness.

      • John 18:39 “But you have a custom that I should release someone to you at the Passover. Do you therefore want me to release to you the King of the Jews?” 40 Then they all cried again, saying, “Not this Man, but Barabbas!”
      • John 19:Then Jesus came out, wearing the crown of thorns and the purple robe. And Pilate said to them, “Behold the Man!” Therefore, when the chief priests and officers saw Him, they cried out, saying, “Crucify Him, crucify Him!
    • All Barabbas heard was “Not this Man, but Barabbas!” and “Crucify Him, crucify Him!”
      • Barabbas believes they have condemned him. He lowers his head and prepares himself mentally for the agonizing death he is about to suffer.
      • The guards open his cell and escort him to the open air of the outside and release him. He has been redeemed by Jesus’ death. He has been purchased from the Roman market of death by a Man whose blood is priceless. He is free to live.

⓭ Jesus is beaten and mocked. He is given a robe, a reed for a scepter, and a crown of thorns.

  • A robe is royalty.

  • The crown of thorns has many meanings:
    • “thorns” are weeds. Like Jonah, Jesus has weeds wrapped around His head.
      • Jonah 2:5 “Weeds were wrapped around my head.”
    • Thorns are the curse of man in Genesis.
      • Genesis 3:18 Both thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you,
    • A “wreath” is another translation of Leviathan (a sea monster/a wreath). It is picturesque of Satan wrapping himself around Jesus’ head like the crown of thorns and burying his poisonous fangs into Jesus’ scalp.

⓮ Jesus must fulfill the vow (oath/covenant) made from before time to die on the cross for sinful man, He had not yet created.

  • Psalm 22:25 My praise shall be of You in the great assembly; I will pay my vows before those who fear Him.

    • They total a memorable 26 as expressed in Psalm 136.
      • Psalm 136 has 26 verses

      • Exodus 12:22 And you shall take a bunch of hyssop, dip it in the blood that is in the basin, and strike the lintel and the two doorposts with the blood that is in the basin.
  • The Tunic
    • The guards gambled for his clothing
      • The tunic was made of one piece so they drew lots for it.
      • John 19:23 Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took His garments and made four parts, to each soldier a part, and also the tunic. Now the tunic was without seam, woven from the top in one piece. 24 They said therefore among themselves, “Let us not tear it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be,
      • Psalm 22:18 They divide My garments among them, and for My clothing they cast lots.
      • The High Priest was not to tear his clothing or he would be disqualified as High Priest. When Caiaphas tore his clothing the position was spiritually vacant. Jesus took the position of the High Priest for believers in the spiritual realm. His tunic was not torn.

    • Matthew 6:15 But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

⓰ It is Finished

  • His Side is Pierced
    • Jesus’ heart gave out. He died on the cross and the red cells separated from the plasma.
    • When a hole is made by the spear, the red cells, which John describes as blood, gushes out first because the red cells are heavier, followed by the plasma, which John saw as water.
    • Medically, there is a condition causing a heart attack due to severe stress called “broken heart” syndrome.
    • Psalm 22: I am poured out like water, and all My bones are out of joint; My heart is like wax; It has melted within Me. My strength is dried up like a potsherd, and My tongue clings to My jaws; You have brought Me to the dust of death.

    • Note: The place they laid Jesus was the mercy seat where the blood was applied for the atonement of sins. Like the Ark of the Covenant there were two angels, one at each end.
  • Genesis 3:23 therefore the Lord God sent him out of the garden of Eden to till the ground from which he was taken. 24 So He drove out the man; and He placed cherubim (plural, probably two as shown on the Ark of the Covenant) at the east of the garden of Eden, and a flaming sword (the Holy Spirit) which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life (Jesus).

Chart Four: Step by Step verifying each date:
THIS IS THE FINAL CHART After the Steps Below verifying each event with its day of the week.

Building the calendar:
For now forget the days of the week. Begin by building the events according to the Jewish Month of Nisan (also called Abib) and the days of the month beginning with Nisan 9 and ending with Nisan 20.

  1. Passover = Exodus 12:3, Exodus 12:5, and Peter 1:19

2. The Feast of Unleavened Bread: Mark 14:12

3. The Anointing at Bethany = John 12:1

4. They sought to Kill Jesus, He was delivered up to be crucified after 2 days = Matthew 26:2, Mark 14:1, Matthew 20:17.

5. The Resurrection: The first day of the week is the Resurrection: After 3 nights and 3 days: Matthew 20:17

6. We know the Resurrection was on the first day of the week: Sunday. Based on the Resurrection occurring on Sunday we can add the other days of the week. This helps in identifying other feasts specified by days of the week.

7. The Feast of Weeks and First Fruits. Leviticus 23:15, Numbers 28:26

8. The Sabbaths

9 The Last Supper: Matthew 26:17 & Mark 14:12 & John 13:1

10. The Triumphal Entry: John 12:12

11. The Wave Offering Leviticus 23:9
Jesus is the First Fruit of the resurrected (never to die again), the first stalk of wheat in the sheaf, then certain tombs of the saints were opened. Together they are the bundled as the Wave Offering.

12. Remove the verses. Leave the events. Resize the boxes. Rearrange the boxes. DONE~
