Palm Sunday is the first day of the Creation and here you have the people of Jerusalem hailing our King. Little did they realize they were saluting the God-Man Who created them and started the creation on that very day. Then they run away when he’s arrested not realizing that they’re now sharing in Adam and Eve’s sin of betrayal. So, now the Lord goes to atone for their sins and for making the imperfect God in Adam by dying on the same DAY that he created him. Good Friday. The Passover spring full moon is God’s witness in the sky. Psalm 88:38. Happy Birthday World.
It’s so simple and obvious that it’s pathetic, just as the same reasoning of His return on the Birthday of the new life of Man, Pentecost Sunday.
Good Friday Second Lesson:
Exodus 12:1-8, 11-141: The LORD said to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt,
2: “This month shall be for you the beginning of months; it shall be the first month of the year for you.
3: Tell all the congregation of Israel that on the tenth day of this month they shall take every man a lamb according to their fathers’ houses, a lamb for a household;
4: and if the household is too small for a lamb, then a man and his neighbor next to his house shall take according to the number of persons; according to what each can eat you shall make your count for the lamb.
5: Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male a year old; you shall take it from the sheep or from the goats;
6: and you shall keep it until the fourteenth day of this month, when the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill their lambs in the evening……
Here is another passage you could add to the above. Holy Saturday, 1st lesson. Gen. 1. In the beginning God created. The Bible lessons in the Missal are written for the seasons these things take place.
Grace be with you, in Christ, Joseph III.
