Lazarus and the Five sons of Annas
Nicodemus - Lazarus - And the Rich Man

Luke 16:18-31 KJV
14. And the Pharisees also, who were covetous, heard all these things: and they derided him.
15. And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.
16. The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it.
17. And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail.
18. Whosoever putteth away his wife, and marrieth another, committeth adultery: and whosoever marrieth her that is put away from her husband committeth adultery.
19. There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:
20.
And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,
21.
And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.
22. And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;
23. And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
24. And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.
25. But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.
26. And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.
27. Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's house:
28. For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.
29. Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.
30. And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.
31. And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.


1) Nicodemus was of the Pharisees in Luke 16 and eventually he understood.
2) Lazarus the beggar of Luke 16 was full of sores and, thus, he was a leper.
3) Nicodemus is the same "Simon the Leper" which had a home in Bethany.
4) Nicodemus "died" and was "born anew" when he finally understood.
5) Yeshua "quickened" Nicodemus and he became "Lazarus".
6) Nicodemus had two sisters named Martha and Mary

Lazarus is "Simon the Leper"
[Matthew 26  ~ Mark 14 ~ Luke 10:38-42 ~ John 12:1-3]
The home of "Simon the Leper" was also in Bethany. Mary anoints Yeshua at the time of his visit to dine at the home of Simon the Pharisee in Luke 7. Then later in Bethany, at the home of Martha, Mary, and Lazarus, Mary once again anoints Yeshua just before the third Passover. The one named "Simon the Leper" is the same Nicodemus which later becomes "Lazarus" after he was converted, (for he finally realized that "leprosy" as defined in the Scripture is supernal, internal, and spiritual in meaning, as are all things).

Nicodemus had discovered that his "whiteness" was nothing more than that of a white outer layer of leprosy. In the similar analogy he realizes that all of his wisdom and works were nothing more than the exterior of a "whitewashed tomb full of dead men's bones". Nicodemus-Simon-Lazarus wrote the Gospel which is now commonly known as the Gospel of John. The greatest of the Gospel accounts was written by a Pharisee of Pharisees and a master-teacher of Israel who finally realized that he had been a "poor leprous beggar" all along coming secretly in the night and begging for crumbs of truth; and now he had met the true Master and life-giver Yeshua. This one called Simon the Leper was now willing to become "a dog" sitting at the feet of the true Master, just as the Canaanite woman of Tyre in Matthew 15, and so Nicodemus the Pharisee was converted.

The first oil of anointing of Yeshua occurred at the home of "Simon the Pharisee" which is not the same house as that of "Simon the Leper". There are at least two separate occasions, (possibly three) where anointings took place and it appears that each time Mary Magdalene is the one who anoints Christ Yeshua. One occurrence was that in which Judas Simonos Iskariotes, (even all the disciples) complained of the price of the costly perfumed oil and its value to the poor, ("three hundred pence" is three times an hundred each) if they had only sold it and given him the money to hold, (for he held the money bag and was a thief). This one is probably the same "Simon the Pharisee" from the first time that Mary had anointed Yeshua. We are not told in Luke 7 where the house of "Simon the Pharisee" was located except that it was probably near abouts a city called Nain to the north. However, if "Simon the Pharisee" is also Judas Simonos Iskariotes then still he was also at the Bethany house of "Simon the Leper" later on with Yeshua and the disciples. The remarks of Yeshua about receiving no kiss from "Simon the Pharisee" are fairly obvious since Yeshua is later betrayed by Judas Simonos Iskariotes with a kiss.

Luke 7:36-47 KJV
36. And
one of the Pharisees desired him that he would eat with him. And he went into the Pharisee's house, and sat down to meat.
37.
And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee's house, brought an alabaster box of ointment,
38. And stood at his feet behind him weeping, and began to wash his feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of her head, and kissed his feet, and anointed them with the ointment.
39. Now when the Pharisee which had bidden him saw it, he spake within himself, saying, This man, if he were a prophet, would have known who and what manner of woman this is that toucheth him: for she is a sinner.
40. And Jesus answering said unto him,
Simon, I have somewhat to say unto thee. And he saith, Master, say on. (Simon calls him "Master")
41. There was a certain creditor which had two debtors: the one owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty.
42. And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both. Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most?
43. Simon answered and said, I suppose that he, to whom he forgave most. And he said unto him, Thou hast rightly judged.
44. And he turned to the woman, and said unto Simon, Seest thou this woman? I entered into thine house, thou gavest me no water for my feet: but she hath washed my feet with tears, and wiped them with the hairs of her head.
45.
Thou gavest me no kiss: but this woman since the time I came in hath not ceased to kiss my feet.
46. My head with oil thou didst not anoint: but this woman hath anointed my feet with ointment.
47.
Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little.

Luke records another supper yet with no mention of another anointing:

Luke 10:38-42 KJV
38. Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house.
39.
And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus' feet, and heard his word.
40.
But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me.
41. And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things:
42. But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.


This appears to be the same meal as the one at the house of Simon the Leper:

Matthew 26:1-7 KJV
1. And it came to pass, when Jesus had finished all these sayings, he said unto his disciples,
2.
Ye know that after two days is the feast of the passover, and the Son of man is betrayed to be crucified.
3. Then assembled together the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders of the people, unto the palace of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas,
4. And consulted that they might take Jesus by subtilty, and kill him.
5. But they said, Not on the feast day, lest there be an uproar among the people.
6.
Now when Jesus was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper,
7.
There came unto him a woman having an alabaster box of very precious ointment, and poured it on his head, as he sat at meat.
8. But when his disciples saw it, they had indignation, saying, To what purpose is this waste?
9. For this ointment might have been sold for much, and given to the poor.

Mark 14:1-3 KJV
1.
After two days was the feast of the passover, and of unleavened bread: and the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might take him by craft, and put him to death.
2. But they said, Not on the feast day, lest there be an uproar of the people.
3.
And being in Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as he sat at meat, there came a woman having an alabaster box of ointment of spikenard very precious; and she brake the box, and poured it on his head.

Six days before the Passover Yeshua goes to Bethany yet that occasion cannot be the same as the occasion from Matthew 26 which is stated to be two days before the Passover, (more emphatic in Mark 14:3 above). Yeshua had been returning in the evenings to Bethany during the entire week of the Passion; yet going to the Temple each morning to teach,
(Re: Chronology of Christ).

John 11:1-3 KJV
1. Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha.
2.
(It was that Mary which anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.)
3. Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick.

John 12:1-6 KJV
1. Then Jesus
six days before the passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead.
2.
There they made him a supper: and Martha served: but Lazarus was one of them that sat at the table with him.
3.
Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment.
4.
Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, which should betray him,
5. Why was not this ointment sold for
three hundred pence, and given to the poor?
6. This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.


We are then told that the next day, (literally "the morrow") was Palm Sunday:

John 12:12-13 KJV
12.
On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem,
13.
Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.

The Greek of Jn 6:71, 13:2, 13:26 has "Ioudas Simonos Iskariotes" (not "son").
Nicodemus the Pharisee learned that much love comes by much forgiveness.
Judas "Simon the Pharisee" only understood money and outward appearances.
Lazarus-Nicodemus saw his own sister Mary forgiven a multitude of sins.

John 11:3 KJV
3. Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold,
he whom thou lovest is sick.

John 11:3 TUA
3. Apesteilan oun hai adelfaipros auton legousai, "Kurie, ide,
hon fileis asthenei!"

"Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying: Master, behold, he who loves you is sick!" (LAZARUS LOVED YESHUA!)

John 13:23 KJV
23. Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom one of his disciples,
whom Jesus loved.

John 13:23 TUA
23. En anakeimenos heis ek ton matheton autou en tokolpo tou Iesou,
hon egapa ho Iesous.

"Was reclining one of the disciples in the bosom of Yeshua,
he who loved Yeshua!" (THE DISCIPLE WHO LOVED YESHUA!)

The common notion that the writer of the "Gospel of John" is "the disciple whom Jesus loved" is probably incorrect. The disciple himself is proclaiming that "HE LOVED YESHUA THE MOST" and this is Nicodemus. Nicodemus also understood the prophecy, (having already memorized the entire Torah probably even as a child) and he would have known the promise to the House of Phineas-Eleazar-Aaron, ("Lazarus" is Greek for the Hebrew "Eleazar").

Numbers 25:1-13 KJV
1. And Israel abode in Shittim, and the people began to commit whoredom with the daughters of Moab.
2. And they called the people unto the sacrifices of their gods: and the people did eat, and bowed down to their gods.
3. And Israel joined himself unto Baalpeor: and the anger of the Lord was kindled against Israel.
4. And the Lord said unto Moses, Take all the heads of the people, and hang them up before the Lord against the sun, that the fierce anger of the Lord may be turned away from Israel.
5. And Moses said unto the judges of Israel, Slay ye every one his men that were joined unto Baalpeor.
6. And, behold, one of the children of Israel came and brought unto his brethren a Midianitish woman in the sight of Moses, and in the sight of all the congregation of the children of Israel, who were weeping before the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.
7.
And when Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, saw it, he rose up from among the congregation, and took a javelin in his hand;
8. And he went after the man of Israel into the tent, and thrust both of them through, the man of Israel, and the woman through her belly. So the plague was stayed from the children of Israel.
9. And those that died in the plague were twenty and four thousand.
10. And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
11. Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, hath turned my wrath away from the children of Israel, while he was
zealous for my sake among them, that I consumed not the children of Israel in my jealousy.
12.
Wherefore say, Behold, I give unto him my covenant of peace:
13.
And he shall have it, and his seed after him, even the covenant of an everlasting priesthood; because he was zealous for his God, and made an atonement for the children of Israel.

Nicodemus is one of the twelve disciples: "Simon Zelotes" or Simon the Zealot and thus "Ioudas Simonos Iskariotes" is more likely "the son" of Simon the Canaanite or "Simon Kananaios-Qana-Jealous" (there is a fine line between "Zealous" and "Jealous" yet the difference is life and death; for YHWH-Qana and there is no other). The story of Lazarus in the Gospel of John is the fulfillment of the Levitical promise of the Covenant of Peace and the Everlasting Levitical priesthood through Eleazar-Lazarus, ("He hath made us kings and PRIESTS") which also is a Covenant of Salt, ("Ye are the salt of the earth"). Nicodemus came to understand the full import of the Lazarus story recorded in Luke 16. The message was spoken to the Pharisees, of which sect he was a master and teacher of Israel, (and which sect also upheld the doctrine of the resurrection). However, the point which Yeshua had rendered apparent before Nicodemus and the members of his sect, concerning the story of Lazarus and the Rich Man, had concerned the house of Ananus and his five sons. The house of Annas was the reigning high priesthood throughout the New Testament writings and they were of the sect of the Sadducees, and thus, "non-believing" in regards to any "afterlife" or the resurrection.

Nicodemus had understood the supernal implications of the story, perceived it as a warning to himself, and was ultimately converted. As the ministry of Yeshua continued Nicodemus eventually "died" to himself, and to his great wealth of knowledge, and so became a true disciple of the Master. However, the time came when Nicodemus-Simon the Leper physically died and the story of "Lazarus" came to pass just as Yeshua had said it would, (it is never stated it to be a Parable). Nicodemus was forever changed and then he was given a 3 to 4 day glimpse of the "other side" and then raised from the dead by the command of Christ Yeshua. He had now come back from seeing it for himself, just as Yeshua had foretold to him exactly what was about to occur regarding himself, and the choice being which side of the "chasm" or "gulf" that he would end up in, (until the Resurrection of Yeshua in Matthew 27:52).

However, the house of Ananus being Sadducees did not believe in the afterlife or resurrection of the dead. Therefore, according to Yeshua, they did not believe Moses and the Prophets. And so neither did they believe Nicodemus even though he was raised from the dead by Yeshua and brought back from Abraham's bosom to warn them; for the chief priests being Sadducees also plotted to kill Lazarus in John 12:10. Theophilus son of Ananus is the only one which may have been converted as evidenced by the fact that Luke addresses both of his accounts to one named "Theophilus" who is obviously of a high stature and esteem in the Jerusalem community of the New Testament Era.

The word for the "bosom" (or bay) of Abraham in Luke 16:22 is the same word employed in John 13:23 quoted above for "the disciple which loved Yeshua" and which was reclining in the "bosom of Yeshua" (a bay, "arena" or "area" of learning-teaching, kindness, warmth, glow, nearness of heart, smooth clear-running water).

Original Strong's Ref. #2859
Romanized kolpos
Pronounced kol'-pos
a primary word; the bosom; by analogy, a bay:
KJV--bosom, creek.

Yeshua considered Lazarus a FRIEND and therefore he must have been one of the close inner circle. Notice what Thomas Judas Didymus says when he hears that Lazarus has died: "Let us go die with him!" Lazarus-Nicodemus was one of the inner circle, one of the twelve; Simon the Leper - Simon Zelotes:

JAMES ZEBEDEE  ~  SON OF THUNDER  ~  ONE OF THE THREE

John 11:11-16 KJV
11. These things said he: and after that he saith unto them,
Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep.
12. Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well.
13. Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep.
14. Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead.
15. And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the intent ye may believe; nevertheless let us go unto him.
16.
Then said Thomas, which is called Didymus, unto his fellowdisciples, Let us also go, that we may die with him.

And so now the curious statement found at the end of the "Gospel of John" is now no longer curious anymore if one understands who the writer is. Peter looks back at Lazarus-Nicodemus-JAMES, whom Yeshua had raised from the dead, and asks Yeshua: "what shall this one do?"

John 21:20-24
20. Then Peter, turning about,
seeth the disciple who loved Yeshua following; which also leaned on his breast at supper, and said, Master, which is he that betrayeth thee?
21. Peter seeing him saith to Yeshua, Master,
and what shall this one do?
22. Yeshua saith unto him:
"If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? follow thou me".
23. Then went this saying abroad among the brethren, that that disciple should not die: yet Yeshua said not unto him, "He shall not die" but rather: "If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee?"
24.
This is the disciple which testifieth of these things, and wrote these things: and we know that his testimony is true.

1 Corinthians 15:4-8 KJV
4. And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
5. And that
he was seen of Cephas, (the road to Emmaus) then of the twelve:
6. After that,
he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; (Galilee) of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.
7. After that,
he was seen of James; (John 21:7) then of all the apostles.
8. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time.

John 21:1-7
1. After these things Yeshua shewed himself again to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias; and on this wise shewed he himself.
2. There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two other of his disciples.
3. Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing. They say unto him, We also go with thee. They went forth, and entered into a ship immediately; and that night they caught nothing.
4.
But when the morning was now come, Yeshua stood on the shore: but the disciples knew not that it was Yeshua.
5. Then Yeshua saith unto them, Children, have ye any meat? They answered him, No.
6. And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.
7.
Therefore that disciple whom loved Yeshua saith unto Peter: It is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girt his fisher's coat unto him, (for he was naked,) and did cast himself into the sea.

John 21:14
14. This is now
the third time that Yeshua shewed himself to his disciples, after that he was risen from the dead.

And James it was who first recognized Yeshua in this third appearance ...

16.
And they had then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas.
17. Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate said unto them, Whom will ye that I release unto you?
Barabbas, or Jesus which is called Christ?

Matthew 27:16-17 TUA (Greek Transliterated Unaccented Bible)
16. Eichon detote desmion episemon legomenon
Iesoun {*} Barabban.
17. Sunegmenon oun auton eipen autois ho Pilatos, "Tina thelete apoluso humin,
Iesoun {*} ton Barabban e Iesoun ton legomenon Christon?

Matthew 27:16-17
16. And they had a notable prisoner, called
YESHUA BARABBAS.
17. Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate said unto them, Whom will ye that I release unto you?
YESHUA THAT IS BARABBAS or YESHUA THAT IS HAVING BEEN CALLED THE CHRISTOS?

Think that Christ Yeshua did not have the choice, as a final temptation, to go ahead and switch places with Bar-Abbas and go free? Think that he could not have aksed the Father for twelve legions of Angels? Yeshua was tempted in all points, as we are, yet WITHOUT SIN (Hebrews 4:15). For the same reason the writer of Hebrews informs us that Yeshua will also appear the second time WITHOUT SIN, (Hebrews 9:28). Never ever let it be said that Yeshua is your "scapegoat" but rather "sin no more lest a worse thing come upon you!"

Every human is three parts by the time we come of age and therefore likewise it was with each of the Three Mighties, the Warrior Friends of the King, which were the first disciples of Christ. However, Yeshua had no sin and therefore no sins to be "sent away" upon the head of a scapegoat. Yet Bar-Abbas completes the typological fulfillment of the Leviticus 16 Yom Kippur ceremony which required a scapegoat to be sent away for `Azazel. And true to form the name of "Bar-Abbas" literally means "Son of the Father" in Aramaic.

This is not to say that there were not indeed twelve literal physical disciples but that the typology above is true and let each be persuaded either way according to as the Lord reveal to him whether there were twelve literal disciples or not. As for "apostles" is not also a "messenger" a "sent one"? If there were three disciples then Yeshua and the Three Mighties also make up the formation of the standards of the wilderness encampment because Christ Yeshua is not only the Captain over all of the host-tsaba'-armies of YHWH, but also the Captain and Head of the Tribe of Judah in all the goings forth of the encampment and host of the saints, (Yeshua was not ashamed to call us brethren). Two thirds from each and every true believer shall be cut off and die. One third of each and every believer shall be left in the land, (man is the earth-soil-'adamah and the 'erets-lands). The one third left in the land is the soul of the believer which shall be purged, brought through the fire, refined as silver, and tried as gold. This principle is exhibited in manifold Scripture passages; one of which born out above is the example of Thomas Didymus, (which names mean "double twin") who was probably the same "Bartimaeus" from near Jericho. Thomas would have shed a third part of himself when the double blind "Bartimaeus son of Timaeus" ("the unclean") was cleansed by the Master. Yet Thomas Didymus had another third part, as all men do, and that third part is not given us at physical birth from our Creator but rather "acquired" along the way, (before we enter into the faith of Christ). The third part is that "old man" sin nature which is the "prince of the power of the air" and Yavan scapegoat which is sent away at the beginning of our faith. Yet always the Yavan scapegoat returns, with seven others more wicked than himself and all the sins upon his mortally wounded head, seeking to re-enter his former house from whence he came, (and we are the house). The same old man returns from the desert wilderness and arid places with the howlers and desert dweller-tsiyiym of Kittiym just before the appointed time and great hour of temptation. The `Azazel is used for a final Atonement; and in the End that one is sent away, into perdition, for him that overcomes in his hour of trial.

Matthew 26:30-34
30. And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives.
31.
Then saith Yeshua unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered abroad.
32. But after I am risen again, I will go before you into Galilee.
33. Peter answered and said unto him, Though all men shall be offended because of thee, yet will I never be offended.
34. Yeshua said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, That this night, before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.

Zechariah 13:7-9 KJV
7. Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the Lord of hosts:
smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones.
8. And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the Lord,
two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein.
9.
And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The Lord is my God.

Matthew 12:41-45 KJV
38. Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee.
39. But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous
generation (GSN#1074 genea) seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas:
40. For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
41. The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this
generation, (GSN#1074 genea) and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here.
42. The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this
generation, (GSN#1074 genea) and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here.
43. When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.
44. Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.
45. Then goeth he, and taketh with himself
seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation (GSN#1074 genea).

Notice that there are four
generations-revolutions-turnings to the one man, and remember that a man is also symbolized as a fig tree: And yet the fourth generation in the passage above has also "a leach with two daughters" following on with it. This then makes for a count of seven "somethings" in the fourth generation. Then the parable returns to what was said of the first generation by closing with the statement that "the eye" which mocks at his, (heavenly) Father and despises his, (holy covenant) mother shall be picked out and eaten by the ravens and the eagles. These four generations are the same four great beasts of Daniel 7 which are the four dominions of the stature of a man. And like the Fourth Beast of Daniel 7 which has TEETH OF IRON; the same is true here in Proverbs 30, where we are informed that the iron teeth are spirit and supernal in meaning because they are the (iron) teeth of swords and jaw teeth of knives.

Exodus 20:3-6 KJV
3. Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
4. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.
5. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God,
visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
6. And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

These four generations of the Decalogue are four turnings of the one man or individual person. YHWH does not punish another man or woman for the previous sins of his or her physical father or grandfathers. The fig tree is the man and is planted in the vineyard, (grapes) of the Great Husbandman:

Luke 13:6-9 KJV
6. He spake also this parable;
a certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none.
7. Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard,
Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground?
8. And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone
this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it:
9. And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down.


What husbandman goes looking for fruit on his fig tree in the first or second year of its growth? No true husbandman would do such a foolish thing because the fig does not begin to bear fruit until the third year at the earliest. Thus the parable above speaks of a total of four years which are probably from the third or fourth year into the seventh or eighth years of its life. Therefore which generation will be the one to see all these things fulfilled? It has been happening now for nearly 2000 years: Each in his appointed times; and none shall be alone in his appointed times ...

Matthew 24:32-36 KJV
32. Now learn a parable of the fig tree;
When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
33. So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
34.
Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
35. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
36. But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

Luke 17:20-24 KJV
20. And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when
the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:
21. Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there!
for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
22. And he said unto the disciples, The days will come, when ye shall desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and ye shall not see it.
23. And they shall say to you, See here; or, see there: go not after them, nor follow them.
24. For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day.

Luke 21:28-31 KJV
28.
And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
29. And he spake to them a parable;
Behold the fig tree, and all the trees;
30. When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand.
31. So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that
the kingdom of God is nigh at hand.

The Consecration of the Priesthood
14 Nisan  -~- The Great Day of Atonement
Nadab and Abihu died before YHWH because they had offered strange fire, (alcohol on the breath mingled with the incense coming up?). Shortly after this event YHWH commands Moses to move the "rehearsal date" of the Great Day of Atonement to the tenth day of the seventh month, (10 Tishri, Yom Kippur).

Leviticus 16:1-2
1. And spake YHWH unto Moses after the death of the two sons of Aaron, when they offered before YHWH, and died;
2. And said YHWH unto Moses, Speak unto Aaron thy brother, that he come not at all times into the holy place within the vail before the mercy seat, which is upon the ark; that he die not: for I will appear in the cloud upon the mercy seat.


The YHWH then gives the commandments for the day of Atonement
And at the end of the passage the Scripture says this:

Leviticus 16:29-30 KJV
29. And this shall be a statute for ever unto you: that in the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, ye shall afflict your souls, and do no work at all, whether it be one of your own country, or a stranger that sojourneth among you:
30.
For on that day shall the priest make an atonement for you, to cleanse you, that ye may be clean from all your sins before the Lord.

Leviticus 16:30 YGB
30.
for on this day he maketh atonement for you, to cleanse you; from all your sins before JHVH ye are clean;

Leviticus 16:30 TUA
30.
Kiy- bayowmhazeh ykaper `leykem lTaher 'etkem. Mikol chaTo'teykemlipney YHWH tiTharuw.

Leviticus 16:29-30
29. And it shall be a statute for ever unto you: in the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, ye shall afflict your souls, and shall do no manner of work, the home-born, or the stranger that sojourneth among you:
30.
Because in this day shall atonement be made over you, to cleanse you; from all your sins shall ye be clean before YHWH.

What is the "BECAUSE IN THIS DAY" of which he speaks? It is the day in which the two sons of Aaron had died before YHWH because they had offered strange fire. Apparently also the whole ceremony combined together was too much for mortal men to adequately perform, (see Leviticus 10:16-20). The Great Atonement was to take place on the same day in which Nadab and Abihu had died before YHWH. There are several evidences which should prove to the disciple of the Word beyond any doubt that the Great Day in which the Glory of YHWH appeared to the children of Israel was indeed 14 Nisan.

The standing up of the Tabernacle ~ 1st of Nisan in the 2nd Year

Exodus 40:1-2, 9-17
1. And spake YHWH unto Moses, saying,
2.
On the first day of the first month shalt thou set up the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation.
9. And thou shalt take the anointing oil, and anoint the tabernacle, and all that is therein, and shalt hallow it, and all the vessels thereof: and it shall be holy.
10. And thou shalt anoint the altar of the burnt offering, and all his vessels, and sanctify the altar: and it shall be an altar most holy.
11. And thou shalt anoint the laver and his foot, and sanctify it.
12. And thou shalt bring Aaron and his sons unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and wash them with water.
13. And thou shalt put upon Aaron the holy garments, and anoint him, and sanctify him; that he may minister unto me in the priest's office.
14. And thou shalt bring his sons, and clothe them with coats:
15. And thou shalt anoint them, as thou didst anoint their father, that they may minister unto me in the priest's office: for their anointing shall surely be an everlasting priesthood throughout their generations.
16. Thus did Moses: according to all that YHWH commanded him, so did he.
17. And it came to pass in the first month in the second year, on the first day of the month, that the tabernacle was reared up.


However, the commandment concerning the Altar is that it is to be consecrated seven days, then cleansed, and then anointed. The commandment concerning Aaron and his sons and all those who would follow is that they be anointed and consecrated seven days. Therefore when the Altar and all of the vessels are anointed it implies that all of the commandments were followed insomuch that the seven days of the consecration of the Altar had been accomplished before the Altar could have been cleansed and anointed for the services. Yet also we see that Aaron and his sons were anointed the same day as the Altar, Tabernacle, and all the vessels thereof. YHWH also had spoken to Moses and commanded that the Passover be kept that year, (Numbers 9:1-3) and the Passover was the fourteenth of this same month. Therefore Moses knew that all things absolutely must necessarily be prepared within the first thirteen days of Abib-Nisan in order to also keep the Passover on the fourteenth day of the same month.

Exodus 29:35-37
35. And thus shalt thou do unto Aaron, and to his sons, according to all things which I have commanded thee: seven days shalt thou consecrate them.
36. And thou shalt offer every day a bullock for a sin offering for atonement: and thou shalt cleanse the altar, when thou hast made an atonement for it, and thou shalt anoint it, to sanctify it.
37.
Seven days thou shalt make an atonement for the altar, and sanctify it; and it shall be an altar most holy: whatsoever toucheth the altar shall be holy.

Returning to Exodus 40 then: while rearing up the Tabernacle Moses immediately begins the seven days of the consecration of the Brazen Altar of the burnt offering sacrifice:

Exodus 40:28-33
28. And he set up the hanging at the door of the tabernacle.
29.
And he put the altar of burnt offering by the door of the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation, and offered upon it the burnt offering and the meat offering; as YHWH commanded Moses.
30. And he set the laver between the tent of the congregation and the altar, and put water there, to wash withal.
31. And Moses and Aaron and his sons washed their hands and their feet thereat:
32. When they went into the tent of the congregation, and when they came near unto the altar, they washed; as YHWH commanded Moses.
33. And he reared up the court round about the tabernacle and the altar, and set up the hanging of the court gate. So Moses finished the work.


And the Altar is only to be cleansed, (by the sprinkling of innocent blood) and anointed after the seven days of its consecrations have been completed. The Altar was therefore able to be cleansed and anointed somewhere in 7 Nisan. At the same time Aaron and his sons were also anointed with the holy anointing oil and then the seven days of their consecrations began.

1 Nisan 
-~- Rearing up of the Tabernacle.
1-7 Nisan 
-~- Seven Days consecration of the Brazen Altar of Sacrifice.
7-13 Nisan 
-~- Seven Days consecration of Aaron and his sons.
14 Nisan 
-~- Eighth Day of the consecration of Aaron and his sons.
14 Nisan 
-~- Great Day of Atonement - Passover at Erev 14 Abib-Nisan.

7 Nisan  -~-  The Purification of the Altar and the Anointing

Leviticus 8:10-15
10. And Moses took the anointing oil, and anointed the tabernacle and all that was therein, and sanctified them.
11.
And he sprinkled thereof upon the altar seven times, and anointed the altar and all his vessels, both the laver and his foot, to sanctify them.
12.
And he poured of the anointing oil upon Aaron's head, and anointed him, to sanctify him.
13.
And Moses brought Aaron's sons, and put coats upon them, and girded them with girdles, and put bonnets upon them; as YHWH commanded Moses.
14. And he brought the bullock for the sin offering: and Aaron and his sons laid their hands upon the head of the bullock for the sin offering.
15. And he slew it; and Moses took the blood, and put it upon the horns of the altar round about with his finger, and purified the altar, and poured the blood at the bottom of the altar, and sanctified it, to make reconciliation upon it.


Aaron and his sons may not from this point leave the door of the Tabernacle for the entire seven days of their consecration, lest they die.

7-14 Nisan  -~-  The Consecration of Aaron and his sons


Leviticus 8:30-36
30. And Moses took of the anointing oil, and of the blood which was upon the altar, and sprinkled it upon Aaron, and upon his garments, and upon his sons, and upon his sons' garments with him; and sanctified Aaron, and his garments, and his sons, and his sons' garments with him.
31. And Moses said unto Aaron and to his sons, Boil the flesh at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation: and there eat it with the bread that is in the basket of consecrations, as I commanded, saying, Aaron and his sons shall eat it.
32. And that which remaineth of the flesh and of the bread shall ye burn with fire.
33.
And ye shall not go out of the door of the tabernacle of the congregation in seven days, until the days of your consecration be at an end: for seven days shall he consecrate you.
34. As he hath done this day, so hath YHWH commanded to do, to make an atonement for you.
35.
Therefore shall ye abide at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation day and night seven days, and keep the charge of YHWH, that ye die not: for so I am commanded.
36. So Aaron and his sons did all things which YHWH commanded by the hand of Moses.


14 Nisan  ~  The Eighth Day of Atonement
The Glory of YHWH shall Appear


Leviticus 9:1-6
1.
And it came to pass on the eighth day, that Moses called Aaron and his sons, and the elders of Israel;
2. And he said unto Aaron, Take thee a young calf for a sin offering, and a ram for a burnt offering, without blemish, and offer them before YHWH.
3. And unto the children of Israel thou shalt speak, saying, Take ye a kid of the goats for a sin offering; and a calf and a lamb, both of the first year, without blemish, for a burnt offering;
4. Also a bullock and a ram for peace offerings, to sacrifice before YHWH; and a meat offering mingled with oil:
for today will YHWH appear unto you.
5. And they brought that which Moses commanded before the tabernacle of the congregation: and all the congregation drew near and stood before YHWH.
6. And Moses said, This is the thing which YHWH commanded that ye should do: and the glory of YHWH shall appear unto you.
7. And Moses said unto Aaron, Go unto the altar, and offer thy sin offering, and thy burnt offering, and make an atonement for thyself, and for the people: and offer the offering of the people, and make an atonement for them; as YHWH commanded.


14 Nisan  ~  The Glory of YHWH
Nadab and Abihu die before YHWH


Leviticus 9:22-10:5
22. And Aaron lifted up his hand toward the people, and blessed them, and came down from offering of the sin offering, and the burnt offering, and peace offerings.
23. And Moses and Aaron went into the tabernacle of the congregation, and came out, and blessed the people: and the glory of YHWH appeared unto all the people.
24. And there came a fire out from before YHWH, and consumed upon the altar the burnt offering and the fat: which when all the people saw, they shouted, and fell on their faces.
1. And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before YHWH, which he commanded them not.
2. And there went out fire from YHWH, and devoured them, and they died before YHWH.
3. Then Moses said unto Aaron, This is it that the YHWH spake, saying, I will be sanctified in them that come nigh me, and before all the people I will be glorified. And Aaron held his peace.
4. And Moses called Mishael and Elzaphan, the sons of Uzziel the uncle of Aaron, and said unto them, Come near, carry your brethren from before the sanctuary out of the camp.
5. So they went near, and carried them in their coats out of the camp; as Moses had said.


Mishael and Elzaphan were now both of them defiled with the dead bodies of Nadab and Abihu, which died before YHWH, because Mishael and Elzaphan carried their carcasses out of the camp. Surely these two men Mishael and Elzaphan are the men spoken of in Numbers 9 where YHWH commands that the Passover also must be kept in this first turning of the year out of Egypt.

Numbers 9:1-6
1. And spake YHWH unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the first month of the second year after they were come out of the land of Egypt, saying,
2. Let the children of Israel also keep the Passover at his appointed season.
3. In the fourteenth day of this month, at even, ye shall keep it in his appointed season: according to all the rites of it, and according to all the ceremonies thereof, shall ye keep it.
4. And Moses spake unto the children of Israel, that they should keep the Passover.
5. And they kept the Passover on the fourteenth day of the first month at even in the wilderness of Sinai: according to all that YHWH commanded Moses, so did the children of Israel.
6.
And there were certain men, who were defiled by the dead body of a man, that they could not keep the Passover on that day: and they came before Moses and before Aaron on that day.

From Numbers 9:6 above "that day" is the same day of which we speak: the same Great Day of Atonement where Nadab and Abihu died before YHWH, the same day is 14 Abib-Nisan. Thus 10 Tishri, Yom Kippur, is the rehearsal date and the Great Day of Atonement is proven to be 14 Nisan: even the same Great Day in which Yeshua was Crucified at Golgotha; which was the morning after the Transfiguration of the same 14 Nisan after sundown of the night before, and the appearing of the Cloud of the Glory of YHWH in the Holy Mount just before Yeshua was betrayed and arrested.

2 Peter 1:16-20
16. For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Yeshua Christou, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.
17.
For he received from the Father Theou honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory: This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
18.
And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the Holy Mount.
19. We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the Daystar arise in your hearts:
20. Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.


One of the most commonly mistranslated words in the Greek NT is "META" which means "in the middle" or "AMIDST" but which is often misunderstood and mistranslated as "AFTER". A perfect example is found in Revelation 20:4 which states that the saints who overcome shall reign with, ("META") Christ Yeshua for a thousand years. Obviously we do not reign "AFTER" Christ for a thousand years but rather "AMIDST" Christ because concerning his kingdom there is no end. Therefore we reign "a thousand years" (which are as one day with YHWH) in his midst. Revelation 20:4 is, therefore, one of the few places where "META" is correctly rendered in the KJV, yet the mistranslation of this word has caused much confusion elsewhere.

Example:

Revelation 20:4 KJV
4. And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned
with (GSN#3326 meta) Christ a thousand years.

Matthew 17:1-5
1.
AND AMIDST six days Yeshua taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart,
2. And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.
3. And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him.
4. Then answered Peter, and said unto Yeshua, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.
5.
While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.

Peter, James, and Thomas were indeed supernaturally "sequestered" for the allotted time by Yeshua himself through prayer and in the times going up to the mountains to pray. In the "Gospel of John" (James) account where Yeshua appears after the Resurrection we find the disciples still "sequestered" in the upper room "with the doors having been shut".

The Consecration of Thomas Didymus

John 20:19
19. Then the same day at evening, being the first of the Sabbaton,
and the doors having been shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Yeshua and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.

And later again the same day after Thomas had arrived ~

John 20:26
26.
AND WITHIN (GSN#3326 meta) the day eight again his disciples were inside, and Thomas with (GSN#3326 meta) them: then came Yeshua, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you.

The Glory of YHWH had Appeared in the Eighth Day; 14 Nisan, in the Holy Mount Olivet Transfiguration of Yeshua with Moses and Elias and the CLOUD of YHWH. And again in another "Eighth Day" which was the "Third Day" later in the upper room when the doors were closed and they were still sequestered. This is probably why the Gospel accounts of Matthew and Mark mention the Transfiguration as occuring amidst six days and yet Luke describes the time as eight days concerning the same, (Luke 9:28).

The promise to the house of Eleazar of an eternal priesthood and an everlasting Covenant of Peace was fulfilled and inaugurated under the refreshed-renewed Jeremiah 31:31-40 and Hebrews 8:8-12 "New Covenant" with both the House of Israel and the House of Judah. The same New Covenant was CONFIRMED (Daniel 9:27) through Yeshua the Nagiyd of the Covenant, (Daniel 11:22) and commenced with the offering up of his body on the Cross as the once for all time sacrifice of
THE NEW MEDIATOR OF THE COVENANT and our Great Eternal High Priest of the order of Melchizedek: Yeshua Christou.

Therefore any reinstatement of a physical priesthood, set up in the physical city of Jerusalem of below, based in "eyes of the flesh" physical interpretations of Torah commandments, with the physical sacrificial flesh of live animals, on a physical rebuilt altar:
