The Sacrifice of the Paschal Lamb and the Sacrifice of Christ, Nisan 14 (Biblical Calendar (March/April))
“For God loved the world so much that he gave his only-begotten Son, so that everyone exercising faith in him might not be destroyed but have everlasting life” (John 3:16)
The purpose of this part of the study, as well as the following one, is to show the difference between the commemoration of the sacrifice of Christ, on Nisan, 14, and the celebration of the Day of Atonement, on Ethaniim (Tishri), 10, which will be a planetary fulfillment, as the great tribulation (Revelation 11:19).
When did Jesus Christ “offer himself”? Tishri (Ethanim), 10 or Nisan, 14? Nisan 14. Forty days later (ascending to heaven), did he really present the sacrificial value of his blood? It is not logical. No Bible prophecy alludes to such an event, on Nisan 14 or forty days later. Why? Because for Jesus to present the sacrificial value of his own blood by ascending to heaven, he himself would have had to be the priest of his own sacrifice, which is not logical and not biblical. Who did sacrifice Jesus Christ? Jehovah God the Father or Jesus Christ the Son? Jehovah God the Father, of course… It is written in John 3:16, so often quoted: “For God loved the world so much that he gave his only-begotten Son, so that everyone exercising faith in him might not be destroyed but have everlasting life”.
It is Jehovah God the Father who sacrificed his own Son, like Abraham of his own son Isaac (see Genesis 22:9–14; Hebrews 11:17). Another text, shows that Jehovah Who made the sacrifice, because He himself prepared a body for Jesus, implying in view of this future sacrifice: “Therefore, when he enters the world, he says: “So when he comes into the world, he says: “‘Sacrifice and offering you did not want, but you prepared a body for me” (Hebrews 10:5).
Thus, Jehovah did not need the blood of Christ to be presented, Because He Was The One Who Sacrificed Him… Which is fundamentally different from the sacrifice of Tishri (Ethanim), 10 and Revelation 19:11 -13: on the day of the great tribulation, where there, indeed, Jesus Christ is a priest who presents the sacrificial value of his blood, in order to justify, the redemption (the ransom) of the Christians who will have a heavenly resurrection (See Colossians 1:14) and earthly resurrected ones (See John 6:48–51;53–58) and the atonement value his own blood, for the Great Crowd, to come out of the great tribulation (Revelation 7:14).
As recorded in John 3:16,36, the beneficiaries of Christ’s sacrifice are those humans who have faith in him and with the resultant resurrection hope. In the statements of John chapter 6, Jesus Christ shows that humans who have faith in this sacrifice symbolically “feed” on the totality of the body of Christ (Blood + Flesh), in view of life through the resurrection: “So Jesus said to them: “So Jesus said to them: “Most truly I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, you have no life in yourselves. Whoever feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood has everlasting life, and I will resurrect him on the last day”” (John 6:48–58). The eating of the bread and the drinking the cup (all Christian hopes combined (heavenly and earthly)), during the commemoration of the sacrificial death of Christ, on Nisan 14, is an expression of this faith. The purpose of this sacrifice is to give everlasting life: “I have come that they may have life and have it in abundance. I am the fine shepherd; the fine shepherd surrenders his life in behalf of the sheep” (John 10:10,11).
