Victor Paul Wierwille was a Bible scholar and teacher for over four decades.
By means of Dr. Wierwille's dynamic teaching of the accuracy and integrity of God's Word, foundational class and advanced class graduates of Power for Abundant Living have learned that the one great requirement for every student of the Bible is to rightly divide the Word of Truth. Thus, his presentation of the Word of God was designed for students who desire the in-depth-accuracy of God’s Word.
In his many years of research, Dr. Wierwille studied with such men as Karl Barth, E. Stanley Jones, Glenn Clark, Bishop K.C. Pillai, and George M. Lamsa. His formal training included Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Theology degrees from Mission House (Lakeland) College and Seminary. He studied at the University of Chicago and at Princeton Theological Seminary from which he received a Master of Theology degree in Practical Theology. Later he completed his work for the Doctor of Theology degree.
Dr. Wierwille taught the first class on Power for Abundant Living in 1953.
Books by Dr. Wierwille include: Are the Dead Alive Now? published in 1971; Receiving the Holy Spirit Today published in 1972; five volumes of Studies in Abundant Living— The Bible Tells Me So (1971), The New, Dynamic Church (1971), The Word's Way (1971), God's Magnified Word (1977), Order My Steps in Thy Word (1985); Jesus Christ Is Not God (1975); Jesus Christ Our Passover (1980); and Jesus Christ Our Promised Seed (1982).
Dr. Wierwille researched God's Word, taught, wrote, and traveled worldwide, holding forth the accuracy of God's "wonderful, matchless" Word.

I'd like for you to take your Bibles tonight and turn to the Gospel of Luke that night to Chapter Thank you, Dorothy and thank you, Rhoda. And here at the headquarters, you've all been given a piece of paper, which is on the teaching chairs before you. And I'm going to begin in a series of teachings tonight, which may carry me through a couple of Sunday nights. To see how much of the Word of God we can put together regarding basically the last week of Jesus's life. We're going to go tonight, of course, as far as our time will permit us to go. And by the grace of God next Sunday night will continue for the teaching here for a few Sunday nights. As I promised you before I started the class in Columbus that I would do upon my return. I'd like for you to take your your your papers that we charted before you and draw some perpendicular lines on your paper. Starting at the left hand side, just make some perpendicular lines on your paper. They don't have to be too long, but they should be you should have 1-234-567-8910 Writing spaces as you draw those perpendicular lines. Right down on your paper. Now in the last space Have you got Are you coming along pretty good, they're good. I hope you're all artists better than I am because my lines here on the blackboard are not quite perpendicular. They're perpendicular generally, but they have some curves. Now in the last space, in the last space, write the word Sunday while you better start at the top and put the word nice on way at the top of your paper. The word knights on is the name of the month like this happens to be April or February or March your months. This is the biblical month of nice on nice sun is what it was called after the Babylonian captivity. In the Old Testament, you will find that at places in the Old Testament, you will find it is called a BIM A B IB. Our BIM is its oldest meaning after the Babylonian captivity, it was called this name nice son which is a Babylonian name a pip is the old Aramaic Hebrew name. This is the month that we're studying. And in the last column, in the last column, I want you at the top of this last column, but the word Sunday and naturally the day before Sunday is Saturday. So back it up column upon column now write this these days between your lines not on top of your line but between them. As I have them on the blackboard here for you. Sunday, Saturday, Friday, Thursday, Wednesday, Tuesday, Monday, Sunday, Saturday and Friday. Also under this in the last in the last face, on the right hand side of your page, where you have the word Sunday, put the number 18 under there 18. Then on Saturday, but the number 17 Because this was the 17th of nice on Friday was the 16th of knights on Thursday was the 15th.
Wednesday was the 14th Tuesday the 13th of knights on Monday, the 12th. Sunday the 11th. Saturday the 10th and Friday was nice on the night.
I think you want to put another word on in this diagram that will help you to set your time. One of the reasons we have failed to get the word of God put together properly regarding the last week is because we did not recommend time. Biblically, we reckon time in our thinking and biblical time is different. Like for instance we begin our day at midnight. The in the Bible they began their day with sunset. So like today is Sunday here for us yet it's still Sunday at this hour I'm teaching to you. But technically, biblically speaking, it is what day, Monday already. Now that little bit of confusion has thrown people off days in the Bible. So I would suggest you put an S on right in the middle of each line. And that stands for sunset. Right towards sunset right there on each line, each perpendicular line at the top of it. Everybody have that? Now, going back to the left hand side of your page now, where we have Friday, the ninth of nice on Friday, the ninth of nice on would terminate at sunset, on what we would call our Friday understand, on our Friday at sunset, the night of night Sun would terminate and the next day would begin, which would be Saturday which you have marked on your diagram. Now, I think you want to put in that the 15th. The 15th of night son is the Passover. The 15th of night son is the Passover. Now the Passover, my people is just a small fraction of the Feast of Unleavened Bread. The Feast of Unleavened Bread is that which started on the 15th of nice on but it started with sunset right here. sunset on the 14th started the feast of unleavened the Passover with the Feast of Unleavened Bread. The Feast of Unleavened Bread ran how many days? Seven. That's right. The first part of that. The first part of that is called the Passover. And they ate the Passover the first thing after sunset. The first thing after sunset that they would do would be eating the Passover. They ate it standing up with their loins girt. About their staff in hand, because it was the Lord's Passover, commemorating the time when he had brought them out of Egypt. And when he brought them out of Egypt, they were ready to travel. So here they were with their loins girt their staffing hands, they had their packs on their back, ready to move out. And they ate this Passover. And immediately they started on their journey out of Egypt. And to commemorate this down through the years, the Passover was eaten the same way. They would stand up with their lines girt their shoes on, they never sat down to eat the Passover. That's why these pictures many times you see where Jesus is sitting around an American Table, especially a European one, where they have the table cloth tied in knots on four ends of the table. They have a bench setting up where everybody is sitting on benches, Peters leaning on something somebody else is doing something else. Those are wonderful pictures painted by wonderful artists, but they are biblically inaccurate. They are not the accuracy of God's word for that could not have been the Passover for when they ate the Passover. The Bible says they always stood up.
Now this Passover is very important. All of these dates are very important because everything hinges on the day of the Passover. And the Bible in the Old Testament tells us that this was the first month of the year. And that on the 14th day of the month, which was the day of preparation. They weren't to get ready to eat the Passover and at sunset, which begins the 15th at sunset which is the Passover day the 15th of nice on they were to eat it and so forth. So having set this for you and having these dates all in here having the days of the weekend it nobody can go wrong because everybody can count to seven backwards and three or four forwards so we have no problem. So the first day, the first day before the Passover would be locked date, the 14th have nice son. So you have to put these in. The reason you have to is because later on tonight I want to give you a scripture that that sets these dates that are I'm putting up here just like a vise, it puts, you know, a vise has two jaws in it, one at this side and one at that. And these dates in the Word of God, the days of the week, the days of the month are all set like advice that you can't get out of a God put something at one end and you put something at the other heat, he just cuts it just like that, for in John chapter 12, which we're going to be dealing with or talking about, later on. Then Jesus, six days before lunch, the Passover, gone 12, one, six days before the Passover came to where Bethany came to Bethany, where Lazarus was, which had been dead who be raised from the dead. So six days before the Passover, that's this time of this very accurately. So the first day before the Passover is the 14th. That second day, before the Passover is the 13th. Now put them all in that third day before the Passover is the 12th. of night, son. The fourth day before the Passover is the 11th of night, son, the fifth day before the Passover is the 10th. Saturday, the 10th of ninth Son, and the sixth day before the Passover has to automatically be Friday, the ninth of knights on there. So when it comes to God, stipulating God stipulating the time, it's always very perfect, very solid, very unique. I am sure that all of you recognize that, that the Saturday was a Sabbath, the weekly Sabbath. I think you might want to put that in there. But I'm sure that all of you people know that. That Saturday is the weekly seven. And not the 15th, of nice sawn here, where the Passover was kept, was also called a Sabbath, because it was the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, which according to John 1931, John 1931, is called the high day, the holy convocation, the special seven. Now I want to handle that you have your diagram drawn now. And all these facts put in there. I want to handle the Gospel of Luke with you. Chapter 19.
On our Thursday, on our Thursday, the eighth of knights on our Lord Jesus traveled from Jericho headed toward the city of Jerusalem. And he stayed our Thursday night, our Thursday night, which is the beginning of Friday for the job, understand our Thursday night, which is the beginning of Friday for the two he stayed at the house of the kids. This record in John 19 is very interesting. Our Thursday understand that our Thursday night, which would be Friday night, the beginning of Friday for the Jews is what we're going to read about here in Luke. You might want to put these scriptures that's one reason I had to draw it. Because for the next few Sunday nights as I teach this, I'll give you these scriptures so you can put them right into these days like this. And by the time we're through, you'll have everything as far as I know what the Bible teaches, happened in the last week of Jesus's life. This Luke 19 One and following belongs under this date of Friday, the ninth of night, son, this is where you have to put it. And Jesus entered and pass through Jericho. And behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus which was the chief among the publicans and he was rich. And he sought to see Jesus who he was and could not for the press because he was little I bought at a shorty that in those days who didn't think, little of stature, verse four, and he ran before and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see him or he was to pass that way. I am not sure how many of you are fully acquainted with the Oriental isms involved in here. But the sycamore tree is indicative of great humility that you when you crawl up the sycamore tree, you absolutely admit that you're done for there's nothing you can do for yourself. Whether that's fall or crawl up a sycamore tree just so that he could see Jesus it was this short. Good B. But the greater implication of course, is the coming up as to what happened in his life. It looks to me like locket lots of people out there up a tree, they're up there, Rob tree, they ought to get up a sycamore tree or something, get some humility So Christ could get in, as we shall see. And when Jesus various five, came to the place, he looked up and saw him and said on him, suckiness, make haste and come down. For today, I must abide by what is that plane up? Where did he abide that day, then? That's the key as his house, that's what you gotta remember. And he made haste and came down and received him that is Jesus, joyfully. And when they saw it, they all murdered saying that he was gone to be guest with a man that is a sinner. They didn't like for Jesus to go there. He thought that he ought to go someplace else, because it just wasn't a good enough house for him to go to. And so key has stood and said unto the Lord, behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor. If I have taken anything from any man by false accusation, I restore it to him fourfold. And Jesus said to him, this day, his salvation come to this house, or as much as he also is a son of God had wonderful to say this to that wonderful man, for the Son of Man is come to seek and save that which was lost. Now, verse 11, and as they heard these things, he added and spake a parable. He added and spoke this parable. This was spoken at the house of cities, because he was nigh to Jerusalem, and because they thought that the kingdom of God should immediately appear.
He said, Therefore, a certain nobleman went into a third country, to receive for Himself a kingdom and to return. And he called his 10 servants and delivered them 10 pounds, and said unto them, occupied till I come, but his citizens hated him, and sent a message after him, saying, We will not have this man to reign over us. And it came to pass, that when he was returned, having received the kingdom, then he commanded these servants to be called on to him, to whom he had given them money, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading. Then came the first saying, Lord, thy pound, have gained 10 pounds. Verse 17, and he said unto him, well, thou good service, because thou has been faithful in a very little have valid authority over 10 cities. And the second game saying, Lord die, pound at gain five pounds. And he said, likewise to him, these are also over five cities. And another came saying, Lord, behold, here is die pound, which I have kept laid up in a napkin, but I feared thee because thou art and austere mind, they'll take us up, that thigh lay is not named and repurpose that thou did not so. And he said unto him, out of thine own mouth, will I judge the doll wicked servant, thou newest that I was an austere man, taking up that I laid not down and reaping that I did not so Wherefore then gave us not thou my money into the bank, that my coming I might have required mine own with interest, usury, verse 24. And he said unto them that stood by take from him the pound and give it to him that have 10 pounds. And they said unto him, Lord, he had 10 pounds, or I say unto you, That onto everyone unto everyone which have shall be given, and from him that has not even that he has shall be taken away from him. But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither and slay them before me. This is the parable impart, as it was spoken by Jesus on this day when he was at the house of cities. The next verse, the next verse is, now what he does, after he has finished staying at the houses, the key is ministering there, he now goes on, first 28. When he had thus spoken, he went before, ascending up to Jerusalem. Now he has headed toward Jerusalem, on this day, on this day of nice sun. And in order to continue the story of Christ moving now toward Jerusalem, you go to Matthew, the 21st chapter. Matthew, the 21st chapter. This record here in the 21st chapter, is what occurred also on this day, and when they drew nigh, are closer unto Jerusalem. They were come to what Bethpage, Bethpage lays between Bethany and the city of Jerusalem, around the curve around the south end of the bottom of the Mount of Olives around the South side of it, that feeds on to the metabolics, then sent Jesus to disciples, not that saying under them, Go into the village over against you. And straightway he shall find an ass tide, and a cold with her, loose them, and bring them unto me. And if any man say unto you, you shall say the Lord hath needed them. And straightaway he will send them I perhaps ought to say to you that the reason the response to the request of Jesus was so readily agreed to was because they went to the temple area where the temple animals were kept. In other words, when the people brought their animals for their ties, and so forth, and the animals that were the firstborn, which were dedicated to the Lord, they had an area reserved in Jerusalem, where these temple animals were kept, they were considered to be holy animals. And when they had need for these animals, that's where they could send word and the animals would be brought. They were holy animals dedicated for the service of the Lord. And this statement, this statement by these men that the Lord hath neither of them was interpreted one way by the people in charge of the corral in Jerusalem. Although it was biblically, the Lord who was asking thought, understand, the Lord hath Nita them and straightway he will send them all this was done, that it might be fulfilled, which was spoken by the prophet save, tell you the daughters of Siam, Behold, thy king, lot common, sitting upon an ass, and a coat, the fall of an S. And the disciples went and did as Jesus commanded them, and brought the ass and the coat, and put on them their clothes, and they set him they're on. And a very great multitude spread their garments in the light. Others cutting down branches from the trees, and straw them in the way, and the multitude that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna, to the son of David, blessing is he that cometh in the name of the Lord Hosanna in the highest. And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this? Who is this? And the multitude said, this is Jesus, the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee. Verse 12, And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the money changers and the seats of them that sold up. And he's and said unto them, it is written, My house shall be called the House of odd prayer. But gee, I've made it a den of the, and the blind, and the lady who came to him in the temple, and he healed. And when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that he did, and the children crying in the temple, and saying, Hosanna, to the son of David, they were sorry displeased, and said unto him, Herastrau what these say, And Jesus said unto them, yay, Have you never read out of the mouths of babes and sucklings dollars perfected place, verse 17, and he left them and went out of the city onto in Tibet, Bethany, and He lodge there, there is the completion. There is the completion in the reading from Matthew, and from Luke, regarding the record which occurred on this, which we biblically refer to as Friday, the ninth of nice on which was the sixth day, that six days before the Passover, he goes to Jerusalem, right, he makes an entry into Jerusalem. He cleanses the temple. And after that temple, his plans, he returns now, on this, on this afternoon, late afternoon, he returns to one, Bethany, and people from now on all the way through to the time of his death, you will find that every day, the Bible says he went back to Bethany, went back to bed. Now, the reason he had to be back in Bethany before it's sunset, on this, the night of nice sun, because at sunset, the next day would start for the Jews. And that would be what kind of a day a Sabbath day and therefore he could not have traveled, he could not have moved back and forth, he had to stay put in the city of Bethany, because of the law of the Old Covenant, the Old Testament.
Now there are two entries into Jerusalem in the Bible. Two entries. I have read with you the first one tonight, because this first one fits into this day, the night of nights on. As I teach in all my classes, on the accuracy of God's word, that two similar incidents are not necessarily identical. You have to always consider them in their chronological order. And you have to note the antecedent as well as the consequence, immediately consequence conditions. And if you do this, notice the antecedent and that which follows. Notice very carefully these conditions, you can get the word of God and it'll fit like I had in a glove. According to the record in the Word of God, the one entry precedes the other. I think I'll give you these scriptures. And you can make a note of them. You have the one here from Matthew 21, one to nine, about the first entry. The other record that you will want to compare with us as Mark 11, one to 10.
Luke 1930, to 34. And John 12. Well, the 50. As I said, the one entry takes place before the other, read those scriptures very alertly and very carefully.
In this first entry, there were two animals use the ads and the code. Were both used. The one we read from Matthew tonight, both of them right.
In the other entry that he made, only one animal is used On the world can you get to two b one and one two b two? Well, you don't have to all you have to watch is your the things that preceded your what we call the antecedent, as well as the consequence, and let the word speak for itself. It's like the fork crucified with Jesus, it's like the day Christ died. No problem. If you just let the word do the speaking, instead of trying to interpret and squeeze it into your little package. In this first in this first entry here that we read tonight from Matthew 21. The prophecy of Zechariah, chapter nine, verse nine is said to have been fulfilled. You'll want to make that note that regarding this scripture, Zechariah, nine, nine, you said they've been fulfilled in the second entry, only as much of the prophecy as quote. In other words, the whole prophecy of Zechariah, nine nine is not quoted in the second entry. Only as much of the prophecy is quoted, as agrees with it, are like anybody has ever noticed that, Rachel, that in that second one, there is not the whole prophecy of Zechariah quoted just as much as agrees with it. While in this first entry, which we're talking about tonight, and getting set on this sixth day before the Passover, the entire Zechariah nine nine is quoted and thus becomes a reality. In verse 10, of this 21st Chapter. And when he was coming to Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, What? Who is this? Who is this? Matthew 2110, right. And in verse 11, the model who said, this is Jesus, the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee. In the first entry, he came in unexpected, it was not expected that he was coming. Listen to the other one. We just read your verse or two, that no one's going to do this, but I'll do it for you. Listen to this. On the next day, much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem. Much people heard about it, that he was coming to Jerusalem. They took branches of palm trees and so forth. In the second entry when he makes into Jerusalem, they were expecting him Oh, who's the people? According to Matthew 21, verse one, when they were come to Bethpage, this is the place where the first entry takes place from from Bethpage while the second entry, let's know this, much people. Much people, the Jews, therefore knew that he was there. All right, now, this is in John, where I'm looking here for a moment, beginning with the ninth verse, much people are the Jews, therefore knew that he was there. And they came not for Jesus sake only, but that they might see Lazarus also whom he raised from the dead. But the chief priests consulted that they might put Lazarus also to death. Because that by reason of him many of the Jews went away and believed on Jesus. On the next day much people that were come to the feasts. You see in context. In context, these people came to the to Bethany, where Lazarus had been raised from the dead. That's what verse nine is saying. This is where the second entry starts from. The second entry start from Bethany, here in the Gospel of John while the first one starts from Bethpage. There's another great truth you will find as you work these, this, this entry into Jerusalem, you will find that in this first one, he cleanses the blood, the temple, he cleans it up, cleanses it. In the second entry he makes he pronounces to do on the city, as well as on the nation who had rejected the key entirely different.
Here he comes, he cleanses attempt at the other entry, which you read about in John, and so forth that I gave you the references on where you'll be able to compare yourself, you will see that it's entirely different. Instead of cleansing the temple, it simply pronounces the Doom on the city on the nation who have rejected the king. Now in this cleansing of the temple area in the 21st chapter, I think we ought to note some very great truth. It says in verse 12, that Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple. Every picture that you have ever seen, of the cleansing of the temple, by the so called artist has been a picture of Jesus with a whip in his hand. How many of you have seen that kind of picture? Wonderful. Is there anybody here has seen any other pictures? I don't think there's any other in extent. It always shows the picture of Christ, cleansing the temple, I'll venture to say some of you people have an old Bible. In your home, maybe grandma and grandpa had it great grandma and grandpa. And it has a lot of colored pictures in it. And I would venture to say if you'll look through it, that this may have the picture, like most of us have seen at one time or another, namely, the picture of Christ with a weapon in his hand, driving the people out of the temple. But this is not what the accuracy of the Word teaches. he cashed out all them that sold and bought in a lot. Temple. Does it say he whipped them out? Nope. It says he overthrew the table of the money changers and the seat of them that sold that. And said unto them, unto the people, it is written, My house shall be called the House of God. Right. But he have made it a den of thieves. I forget which gospel it is, and maybe one of you can quickly find it for me in Mark 11, or in Luke 19. Or perhaps in John two? I think John two is the one I would like to have you look at.
One I knew it was right in here someplace. Thank you, Rick. John two. What verse does it start with? 15. All Yes. Verse 13, and the Jews Passover was at hand. And Jesus went up to Jerusalem, first party, and found in the temple, those that sold oxen, and sheep, and what Dubs and the changers of money sitting. And when he had made a scourge of small chords, he drove them. They move the sheep and the oxen, the sheep and the oxen, he drove them all out of the temple, both the word and the word both both the sheep, and the luck. See, it's not very plain, plain as day. He made us small skirts. He made a scourge of small cards and or made a whip out of a rope kind of thing. And he drove them all out of the temple. Not the people, both the sheep, and the lot oxen. You see on animals who could not understand reason. He used this whip, because the animals should not have been where they were. They may have been holy animals, but they were disgracing the place they were not supposed to be there according to law. So he took his whip, and he drove the sheep and the oxen out of that temple area. They weren't supposed to be there. Now it doesn't do you much good. If you got a mad bow coming at you to stand there in the field and say now look for Nam. I want you to hold up here I mean, or to say look, you take it easy on this side. All the time you see him coming that way. I thought if there is enough believing to stand and talk you better head over the fence. Sunnery Well, you've done the same thing on animals that do not understand reason you drive them out. Today, they don't use, I guess many of these whips anymore that got these electric sticks, put a little little electric shock in the rear of them and push them out. Sure. Jesus in his day made this quarter rope. That's what I wanted to see. Because the pictures always show Jesus using this on the people. And that is devil that is alive from hell, and it doesn't fit the word at all. He did not do that. John very plainly says that he made this skirt and drove out both the sheep and the opposite. And he poured out or turned over the money changers tables. he overthrew their tables. on animals, he couldn't understand reason. He drove them up the inanimate objects like tables, and chairs. It doesn't hurt. It doesn't drive them out. They hit them with a whip. On inanimate objects. He simply took them and overthrew them, turn them upside down. And what else does it say? Said verse 16, as plain as day and said unto them, that's sold, jobs and these things that were there. Take these things out of here, take these things hence, make not my Father's house and House of odd merchandise. And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of dying house had eaten me up. Isn't that something? You see how plain this word of God really becomes. And it sets our Lord and Master like he has said every other place in the Gospel. Sure, some people would like to have the Lord to take the whip. Some I've been using it applying it to so called God's people to try to keep them hurted in to their little denomination or their little told. They try to keep them in case, as if God Almighty took Jesus and he drove everybody else out. Except the good people. He he by keeping his weapon handy kept the bad people out. And the bad people on the inside. He kept them good. No, no, no, no, no. With the people, he used reason; he spoke to them. But with the animals who could not understand language or speaking, he drove them out with the whip to the tables, he took the tables and overthrew them. And to the people, he said, gotta hear how he was not a jellyfish. He didn't speak to them and said, Now we'll just please take these things out of here. That's not the tone of the language of the text. He said that was the kind of people like this, if you toy around with a they all say, Well, why should I? He never gave a chance. He said get out of hair. This is my father's house. This is devilish what you're doing here, get moved. And he drove the cattle out turn the tables over and out the people with this happened on that day. Which is the sixth day before the Passover, when he entered into Jerusalem, from Bethpage cleanse the temple. And after He had cleansed the temple, after he plans the temple, he returns to Stephanie now in John chapter 12. John chapter 12 verse one. Then Jesus six days before the Passover came to learn that bunny, where Lazarus which was, which had been dead, who he raised from the dead. Alright. You see, after all of this thing occurred, starting from Bethpage that day, and occurred here, where did he returned to? That's it. That's what the 12th chapter in the first verse is talking about. On that day, six days before he comes back now to where 70 and he had to be there before sunset, they call it Sunset would start. The fifth day they bought the Passover which was a Sabbath day. That's why verse two becomes very interesting. There, they made him a supper. And Martha served. But Lazarus was one of them that sat at the table with him. Then verse three, then took Mary a pound appointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wipe his hair, his feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the odor of the luck pointment then set one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon son, which should be trade him, why was not this appointment sold for 300 Pence, and given to the poor. This he said, not that he cared for the poor, but because he was a lot they and had the bag, and their lock was put there in then said, Jesus, let her alone against the day of my burying has she kept this, for the poor, always you have with you, but me, he have not always much people are the Jews therefore knew that he was there. And they came not for Jesus sake only, but that they might see Lazarus also who he had raised them up from the dead. But the chief priests consulted that they might put Lazarus also to death, because that by reason of him, many of the Jews went away and believe on Jesus. Now, this supper, which was made here for Jesus, where Martha served, I had to either occur before sunset, or after sunset, on the Sabbath. Because if the Supper was served here, it would have to be before sunset, or the Sabbath starting here with sunset and terminating here at sunset, that supper could be made here for them. That suffered, that occurred here where Mary took this pound appointment occurred at this time, after sunset, on this 10th Day, which would be the 11th of night sign, which would be the fourth day before the Passover. Now, people, I think the only way you're really going to enjoy the greatness of all of these wonderful scriptures and the accuracy with which they're given is just to come back next Sunday night, let me take up some more of them. And I expect within the next two to three weeks, to find the time in my schedule, to have a map made for you, much like your drawing. And basically if I can to put all this information into it, and to give this to you, so that you've got it, to use for yourself in your further study. All of this work that I'm beginning to set before you now we began on, what, five years ago, six years ago, in working it. I began longer than that, but I think Jim Chamberlain and some of those men, Rachel Wyatt, I believe you were in audit many years ago, we started working this accuracy many years ago. Last year, we spent a considerable amount of time a group of us students here going over this or was it two years ago already? Was it too. And year after year, it gets more interesting because you can see the great pattern with which it fits. And I think this is the year when I'd like to teach it as I promised you I would a number of weeks ago to teach you as much as I can from the accuracy of God's word to put this all together for you. So that when the so called Easter season is over with you will have had all the scriptures relating to This which occurred, starting with the sixth day before the Passover, and specifically closing with the first day of the week when the women came to the to early on Easter Sunday morning, when the scripture says the first day of the week, early Sunday morning when the women came to the tomb, that's the other end of the vise that documented it tells you what day of the week was. It was it it tells you what occurred. This record in John told you what occurred six days before the Passover. So you have your advice, and all we have to do is read accurately all the scriptures relating to this period of time, and everything will fit into these dates. From the ninth of nice on to the 18th Sunday, the 18th of nice on and your whole bible and all that which occurred regarding Jesus life here upon Earth in the last week of his life would just fit like a hand in a glove.
