What About Jesus:
"He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth:" Isaiah 53:7
When did Jesus behave this way?
On the Passover!
Because our God is a God of knowledge (1 Samuel 2:3), He has set this thing up so that when He came in the flesh, He could partake of the Passover, and become the Passover.
In the beginning Jesus created the days in such a manner that most people would not recognize today.
"In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
were the sixth day." Genesis 1:1, 5, 7-8, 13, 19, 23, 31
God set the precedent in the beginning; A day is made up of the evening and the morning (in that order). Therefore the day begins at night (sunset). According to the Bible the evening comes before the morning.
Now, let's look at Christ:
"And it came to pass, when Jesus had finished all these sayings, he said unto his disciples, Ye know that after two days is the feast of the passover, and the Son of man is betrayed to be crucified." Matthew 26:1-2
Jesus foretold that He was to be crucified during the Passover.
Jesus disciples did NOT prepare communion, they were NOT making ready the Last Supper, they made ready the PASSOVER!
And after their preparation, when did they begin to eat?
"Now when the even was come, he sat down with the twelve." Matthew 26:20
Notice He didn't say I won't eat again, He said He won't drink of the fruit of the vine again (drink wine). Immediately afterwards, Jesus prayed and then was betrayed.
"Rise, let us be going: behold, he is at hand that doth betray me. And while he yet spake, lo, Judas, one of the twelve, came, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and elders of the people. Now he that betrayed him gave them a sign, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he: hold him fast." Matthew 26:46-48
Notice who needs to kill the Lamb... the Whole assembly of the Congregation.
