( One thing that is often overlooked, is the fact that the priests of the Temple came to Pilate on Friday, April 30th, 28 AD, to ask him to seal the tomb of Jesus and post a guard, to prevent the disciples from stealing the body of Jesus and claiming that He rose from the dead.

A Roman seal was boring one or two holes through the stone, into the sides of the tomb, and pouring hot lead into the downward opening and inserting an iron rod. Once the hot lead cooled, it would take more than 90 tons of force to move the stone.

At about 5:15 PM on Saturday, two hours before sunset, Jesus rose from the dead, folded His linen, and exited thru the walls of the sealed tomb. At about 7:30 PM Saturday, the High Priest and his associates had returned to the Kidron valley and cut the barley bundles after sunset, and took them to the Temple.  After2016-Yehovah they left, the twenty-four graves that were disrupted had their occupants rise from the dead, and followed the priests into the city of Jerusalem.  The next morning, before dawn at about 5:45 AM, an arc-angel came down and rolled the stone off to the side, shearing the iron rods, and scaring the Roman soldiers half to death.

Reading from Matt 28:1-6

1 In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.

2 And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.

3 His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: 4 And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.

The 70 week ministry (490 days) of Yeshua began on the 20th day of the eleventh Hebrew month (Shevat), which was Saturday, February 16, 27 AD.  This is when Jesus came to John to be baptized.  After coming out of the water, and the “spirit speaking” in an audible voice, Jesus spent the next 40 days in the wilderness. He returned afterwards to the Jordan, on the first day of the new year, which was the “acceptable year of the Lord”. It was His 42nd day, on Saturday, March 29th, 27 AD. It is then that John saw Him approaching and proclaimed “Behold the (sacrificial)

Lamb of God, that takes away the sins of the world”!  This was exactly 483 years after the commandment to “go forth and build Jerusalem (Ezra 7:1-22).  The Messiah appeared, and was proclaimed, on the first day of the new “acceptable year of the Lord”.

The ministry of Yeshua would end 448 days later, in Jerusalem, when the 120 disciples would receive the Holy “Ghost” of Yeshua, on Sunday, June 20th, 28 AD, the 8th day of the third month (Sivan).  It’s known as the “Day of Pentecost”. However, its beginnings go back to the Exodus from Egypt, in late March of 1598 BC.

Israel left Egypt on the 15th day of the first month, one day after Yehovah “passed over” the blood of the lamb. Then they traveled to the burial site of Joseph. I’m going to venture out and say that it probably was the first day of the week, maybe the 17th day of the new month, which they acquired the bones of Joseph, signifying the “First Fruits” to arrive in Egypt, in the year 2051 BC.  It is from the Day of First Fruits that we begin to count seven Sabbaths, and the fiftieth day is the Day of Pentecost. The children of Israel arrived at Mount Sinai 47 days after picking up Joseph. They were told to wash and prepare for the third day after their arrival. You can read about this in Exodus chapter 19.

On the third day after their arrival at Mt. Sinai, Yehovah descended upon the mountain, with fire, smoke, thunder, lightning and loud trumpets. Then God began to speak to the people.  It is at this moment that God gave Israel the new language of Hebrew.  It was a precursor of the Day of Pentecost, when the Spirit would come down and speak.

The Feasts of Yehovah were experienced by Israel on their way to freedom from Egypt, a shadow of sin.  The church of Yeshua must enact the same thing.

Repentance from sin (leaving Egypt), water baptism (walking thru the Red Sea), and receiving the Holy Ghost, the Spirit of Yeshua (as Yehovah the Spirit, speaking at Mt. Sinai) causing the believer to speak in an unknown tongue.

In the year 28 AD, there was an Adar Bet, a second twelfth month, because the barley was not yet aviv at the end of Adar, the twelfth month. That is how the ministry of Yeshua was extended to 490 days.  From February 16, 27 AD, to June 20, 28 AD, as written by Daniel.  It was 69 prophetic weeks, or 483 years, from the first day of the new year when Israel left Babylon (Ezra 7:9), to the first day of the new year when Yeshua emerged from the wilderness as the Messiah (John 1:29).

There are three layers of prophecy in Daniel 9:24-27.  The first layer was the prophecy of the arrival of the Messiah, 483 years after leaving Babylon. The second layer was the concerning the ministry of Yeshua, where He would be “cut off” after 62 weeks (434 days), and confirm the covenant with His sacrifice four days later (in the midst of the next week), on a Wednesday, with His blood dripping through the crack in the rock upon the West end of the Arc of the Covenant hidden below. On Wednesday evening the Feast of Unleavened bread began, when Yeshua spent the first night in the tomb.  Thursday night and Friday night followed, and Yeshua arose before sundown on the Sabbath. That concluded the 63rd week.

The next seven weeks were the feast of weeks, concluding with the Day of Pentecost, when the Spirit of Yeshua came down and the 120 disciples spoke with a new tongue on the Temple Mount, which was a reenactment of Yehovah speaking to Israel at Mt. Sinai.

What about the third layer, you may ask?  That is to come at a later time.  For now, this concludes the Feat of Pentecost.  The Day of Trumpets and Day of Atonement are discussed in Part 6.
