Lance provides insight on the resurrection and ascension of Christ, quoting parts of a book by a Harvard law professor, Dr. Simon Greenleaf.

Hebrews 9:13-14 says, “For if the blood of bulls and goats and the ashes of a heifer, sprinkling the unclean, sanctifies for the purifying of the flesh, how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?” Quotes: “Two feasts are being combined together. The Passover is when this happens. Jesus is the lamb, the blood will protect you as death passes over. This is the salvation for you and your house. But there’s another day called the day of Atonement. The high priest goes into the Holy of Holies, one time a year, and the high priest goes in with the blood of the bull.

Jesus is going in on the feast of Passover, but He’s going to fulfill also fulfill the Atonement through His blood.” Be blessed.

Remember: you have been “blessed to be a blessing.” (Genesis 12:2) Pay it forward! Full teaching here: https://youtu.be/no5F8WEQeWo

So he came and took the body of Jesus.” Joseph of Arimathea asks for the body and puts it in the tomb. John 19:39 “And Nicodemus, who at first came to Jesus by night, also came, bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pounds.” It’s a hundred pounds worth of spice and paste. John 19:40 “Then they took the body of Jesus, and bound it in strips of linen with the spices, as the custom of the Jews is to bury.”

Where did in the world did the Jews learn how to do this? They learned it in Egypt, where they mummified the bodies. They didn’t believe in coffins, they believed in mummies. They would wrap with gauze, like a caste. The purpose of that is that once this decomposition process is complete, the remains won’t smell as bad. When you don’t have embalming fluid, the best way to deal with this is to keep the odors trapped inside the linen. That’s the reason for the fragrant spices – they overpower the stench of flesh decaying.

When it was time for them to do the head itself, something happens, they run out of time, they couldn’t complete the process. On the first day of the week, Mary’s goes to the tomb, and doesn’t see Jesus. Nobody knew where the body was. She comes back and tells Peter and John. Peter and John go running back to the tomb. They look in and see the linen cloth lying there. The handkerchief that had been around his head was not lying with the linen clothes, but was folded together in a place by itself.

John 20:8 “Then the other disciple, who came to the tomb first, went in also; and he saw and believed.” Mary comes back to the tomb in verse 11. She is weeping and sees two angels, one sitting at the head, the other where the feet of His body would have been. She hears a voice saying, “Woman, why are you weeping?” She said, “Because they’ve taken away my Lord and I do not know where they’ve laid Him.” She turned around and saw Jesus standing there but didn’t know it was Him, she supposed him to be the gardener. She said, “Sir if you carried him away, tell me where you’ve laid Him.”

Jesus says to her, “Mary.” She turns and says to him, “Rabboni.” He says, “Do not cling to me, for I have not yet ascended to my Father.” Hebrews 9 11 But Christ came as High Priest of the good things to come, with the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with hands, that is, not of this creation. 12 Not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own blood He entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption. 13 For if the blood of bulls and goats and the ashes of a heifer, sprinkling the unclean, sanctifies for the purifying of the flesh, 14 how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

Two feasts are being combined together. The Passover is when this happens. Jesus is the lamb, the blood will protect you as death passes over. This is the salvation for you and your house. But there’s another day called the day of Atonement. The high priest goes into the Holy of Holies, one time a year, and the high priest goes in with the blood of the bull. Jesus is going in on the feast of Passover, but He’s going to fulfill also fulfill the Atonement through His blood.
