    Really! For once the Church is right! Hurray!


    From the Scriptures?!

    Yes indeed; from the GOSPELS, mind you!

    John 12 verses 1 and 12,

    Verse 1,
    "Six days before the days-of-passover[-feast-of-unleavened -bread] Jesus went to where Lazarus lived in Bethany...."

    Verse 12,13,
    "On the next day people took branches of palm trees...."
    "PALM SUNDAY"!— was five days before the Feast-day of the passover.

    Just like the Church agrees on Palm-Sunday, it agrees on the fact Friday was the passover’s ‘Feast’ and that the ‘Feast’ fell on the fifteenth day of the First Month.

    Then Sunday must have been the tenth day of the month.
    The Church also agrees on this fact, the DATE, of Abib 10, when in the old passover a lamb was separated, it was ‘Sunday’.

    9 Jn.12:1 SIXTH = Saturday Bethany
    ‘where Lazarus stayed’ Meal
    Mary anoints Jesus’ feet
    10 Lk.19:29-44 Mk.11:1 Jn.12:12 Mk.11:11 FIFTH = Palm Sunday

    ‘next morning’
    ‘when it got late’ From Bethany
    ‘came to Jerusalem’
    ‘out of city’ Fig tree cursed

    12 Mk.11:20 21,27 Mt.22:23 Lk.20:1-8 Mk.13:1, 3
    Mt.26:2 THIRD = Tuesday ‘early’

    ‘on the same day’

    after two days crucified ‘returning’ (from Bethany)
    ‘to Jerusalem again’
    ‘out of temple’
    Mount of Olives
    Lk.21:37 Fig tree withered

    Mk.14:1-3 SECOND = Wednesday

    ‘Simon’s house’ CONSPIRACY Meal
    Woman anoints Jesus’ head

    Mark 14:1-11, Friday, was “Feast of Unleavened Bread” Abib 15, and Judas “two days” before Friday – that is, one day before Abib 14 “The Preparation of the Passover”— one day before Thursday and day of Crucifixion, went to conspire with the Jews to kill Jesus. “Not on the Feast Day” decided the Jews according to Mark (14:2).

    Matthew 26:2-5 relates how the chief priests and the scribes and elders of the people amongst themselves, “two days” before the “Passover” as such ‘when they killed (crucified) the passsover’, “consulted that they might take Jesus by subtlety and kill Him”.

    It therefore was the next day (Mk14:1-11) that Judas went to see the Jews – the day after they among themselves (Mt26:14-16) conspired.

    The ‘Feast of Unleavened bread” or Friday the day referred to in Mk14:1, was “two days after” Judas’ meeting with the Jews. ‘Inclusive’ or ‘exclusive’ the day referred to fell outside the reach of Thursday Abib 14 which was only one day to Abib 15, Feast of Unleavened Bread Eaten.

    Mark refers to two days before the “Feast”; Matthew refers to two days before “the Passover’s” sacrifice-day.

    Mark refers to Wednesday two days before Friday the “Feast”— and to “Jesus’, BEING in Bethany in the house of Simon the leper at meat” – ‘ontos autou en’.

    Matthew refers to Tuesday two days before Thursday “Passover” “when they must kill the passover”. Matthew speaks “OF WHEN Jesus was come in the house of Simon the leper in Bethany” – ‘tou de Iehsou genomenou en’.

    Mark does not tell about the Jews’ conspiracy which Matthew does tell about; Mark tells of Judas’ visit to the Jews one day after their conspiracy, and he uses Judas’ visit to indicate the Feast Day (twice mentioned)— on Friday “after two days”.

    Matthew tells about the Jews’ conspiracy amongst themselves and uses it to indicate the day of Crucifixion— on Thursday “two days after”.
