JESUS DID NOT OBSERVE THE PASSOVER - ACCORDING TO SOME Part Two The second Scripture given by the House of Yahweh (as presented to us by Kevin Richardson) is: MARK 14:14 " And wheresoever he shall go in, say ye to the goodman of the house, The Master saith, Where is the guest chamber where I shall eat the Passover with my disciples?" Then we are told: " The literal word for word translation for this scripture is: '.....Says to you the Teacher: Where is the guest room in which the Passover together the disciples of Me may eat?' Or, correctly translated: ' And wherever he enters, say to the owner of the house: The Teacher says, Where is the guest room in which My disciples may eat the Passover together?' " Once more the reader may want to look at this verse in various translations, the more the better. Please remember to read the CONTEXT - before and after. I presume the argument is that this verse does not SPECIFICALLY say Jesus will PARTAKE WITH the disciples of the Passover, hence He did not (according to the House of Yahweh) partake of the Passover that night. Let them so argue and let them so delude themselves. Other verses in the Gospels show Jesus did partake with His disciples of the Passover that night. And even if we go along with the idea that He did not, we can still clearly see from the NT that Jesus DID PARTAKE of the NT Passover symbols - the bread and cup. He introduced to them that NT ordinance - established it - explained to them what the NT Covenant symbols of the bread and fruit of the vine represented. And further, this verse is as clear as a sunny day in the Canadian Rockies, that it WAS the PASSOVER the disciples would observe and partake of. HERE IS THE CONTEXT OF THE PASSAGE AS TRANSLATED BY JAY P. GREEN Sr. " And on the first of the unleavened, when the Passover they killed (this is all explained in another study of mine - Keith Hunt), say to Him the disciples of Him, Where do you wish going we may prepare that You eat the Passover? And He sends two of the disciples of Him, and says to them, Go into the city, and will meet you a man a pitcherof water carrying; follow him. And where ever he enters, tell the housemaster, The Teacher says, Where is the guestroom where the PASSOVER with the disciples of Me may eat? And he you will show an upper room large, being spread ready. There you PREPARE FOR US. And went forth the disciples of Him, and came into the city, and found as He told them, and they PREPARED THE PASSOVER " (Mark 14:12-16). HERE IS HOW GEORGE RICKER BERRY TRANSLATED FROM THE GREEK THIS SECTION OF SCRIPTURE. " And on the first day of unleavened, when the Passover they killed, (Fred Coulter also explains this fully in his book on the Passover - Keith Hunt), say to him his disciples, Where desirest thou going we should prepare that thou mayest eat the Passover? And he sends forth two of his disciples, and says to them, Go into the city, and will meet you a man a pitcher of water carrying; follow him; and wherever he may enter, say to the master of the house, The teachers says, Where is the guest-chamber where the PASSOVER with my disciples may eat? and he you will show an upper room large, furnished ready. There PREPARE FOR US. And went away his disciples, and came into the city, and found as he had said to them, and they PREPARED THE PASSOVER. And EVENING being come he comes with the twelve. And as were reclining they and WERE EATING said Jesus.......AND AS THEY WERE EATING, having taken Jesus a loaf, having blessed he brake, and gave to them, and said........And having taken the cup, having given thanks he gave to them.....And he said to them......." (verses 12-24). I submit to you that any young child reading this passage will see and understand from the words written that Jesus DID PARTAKE with His disciples of the PASSOVER that evening (of the 14th of Nisan). Is it PLAINLY STATED a number of times, so we would GET THE POINT, that it was the PASSOVER the disciples went forth to the upper room to PREPARE, for the rest of the disciples and Jesus to come a little later and observe. It is clearly stated that while and during the eating of that Passover, Jesus instituted the NT Passover symbols and their meaning, of the bread and cup. There it is in CONTEXT. Now you have the "rest of the story" as one well known fellow is famous for saying. To think and believe that Jesus sat around NOT EATING AND NOT DRINKING of this Passover while His disciples were so doing, is deceptive mind folly to the utter outer limits. But people will believe what they want to believe in order to hold to false doctrines. They fulfil the prophecy of Paul who wrote that in the last days some would turn away from the truth, turn to men with itching ears, ever learning but never able to come to the knowledge of the truth, yet their folly he said would be manifest unto all. One more verse is given, that of Luke 21:11. I shall look at that next time, in part three. ......................................
