“The Word became flesh and tabernacled among us” (John 1:14).
I love the Yeshua in the Feast of Sukkot article its intriguing, we just went through the Torah portion Vayera containing the Akeidah and I noticed that in Genesis 18 when they went under the tree’s it relates it to the Sukka so I wonder if Yitzchak was born at the appointed time of Sukkot as well. We know Yitzchaks death was connected to Rosh Hashana, Yom Kippur or Pesach possibly.
I wonder if the appointed time of Yitzchak’s birth is connected with Sukkot it seemed to suggest it as a possibility and with the foreshadowing of Yeshua in Yitzchak’s journey especially the Akeidah that would lend more credibility to the possibility of the birth of Yeshua being on Sukkot as Yochanan seems to intimate.
I did a study on the New Moons between 7 BCE and 33 CE and found that in my estimation that Yeshua conceptions was possibly on December 6, 6 BCE (which was the first day of Chanukah that year) following Yochanan’s conception at Shavuot in 6 BCE. That would mean that Yochanan came or was born around Pesach 5 BCE and Yeshua was born on or about Sukkot 5 BCE.
This timeline leaves Aviv-Nisan 14th in 27 CE (33 years later) on Erev Pesach the preparation day on Wednesday evening, the Fast of the Firstborn. Leaving Yeshua to die on the preparation day Thursday and be in the tomb before Thursday evening or Erev Chag Ha’Matzot on Aviv-Nisan 15th when they consumed the Paschal means. This would leave Thursday evening and Friday day as the High Shabbat of Chag Ha’Matzoat, then the weekly Shabbat on Aviv-Nisan 15th and the Feast of First Fruits of Aviv/Barley would fall on Sunday Nisan 17th a day when Pharisee’s and Sadducee’s both agree that First Fruit falls after the High Shabbat and the weekly Shabbat. This would fulfill as the gospels say “and he rose ON the third day” so sometime ON, during and before the Third Biblical day is done Yeshua rose using the “as Noah was in the belly of the fish for THREE DAYS and THREE NIGHTS,” as the time modifier not the general day 1, day 2 and day 3.
We have to know biblical days start at Sunset thus the Ma’ariv prayers are the most important since Adonai seeks to walk with us in the cool of the day between the evenings or between sunset and darkness. I used Nasa’s website and HebCal and found the birth and conception dates for those years coincide for Yeshua’s birth and death to follow the festivals in the possible scenario I laid out. Anywho, I found that interesting contextually to the article on Sukkot.
