Hey again NOT -
More catching up for you to do, I'm afraid - you're quickly lagging behind !!
'Just as Jonah was THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS in the BELLY OF THE FISH so shall the Bar Enasha ('son of man' from Dan 7:13-14) be in the 'belly'
So...even IF the 'bar enasha' was crucified to death (arguable after only 6 hours of hanging naked and spreadeagled / castrated when the typical
length of time it takes terran human adult males to die on a Roman CRUX would be 90 hours) on a Friday afternoon and buried before sundown (i.e. a
rush job) riddle me this
FRIDAY NIGHT TO SATURDAY NIGHT = 1 day/night
SATURDAY NIGHT TO SUNDAY NIGHT = 1 day/night
SUNDAY NIGHT TO MONDAY NIGHT = 1 day/night
--- Total : THREE days and THREE Nights = i.e. in the BELLY OF SHE'OL would place the 'exaltation' (i.e. of a dead Zionist armed Juhadist Martyr
for the Daviddic Cause in 1st century Judaea) to the 'right hand of the Power of El' on a 'Tuesday morning', a far cry from a Sunday BEFORE the
sun rose ('at dawn, the women came to the tomb...') !!!
I suspect the 3 days and 3 nights is a SYMBOLIC MARTYROLOGICAL MIDRASH on the phrase 'a time, two times and half a time' of Heb. Daniel 12:7 (i.e.
1260 days of prophecy - i.e. a year, two years and half a year) alla the reference in Apocalypse of Yohanon the Levite (aka the Book of Revelation)
Rev chapter 11
And I looked, & behold, I saw: Two Olive Trees
And lo, they were in front of the Throne of EL in heaven
And walking between two Golden Arms of the Menorah :
And behold, they both were in deep-mourning
And clothed head to foot in Saqcloth
And wearing Ashes upon their Heads.
And I turned to one of the Watchers near me, and spoke to him
Saying, Who are these Two Olive Trees
Even they who are walking between the Two Arms of the Menorah
Who are walking to and fro in Mourning
And dressed from head to foot in Saqcloth
And wearing Ashes upon their heads?
And he spoke saying, These Two Olive Trees are My Two Slain Martyrs:
And lo, they are both now worthy to walk between the Lamps of the Menorah
And serve as Priests before the Face[s] of his Altar for ever :
For behold, it was they who preached the testimony unto death
And did not value their life to speak the Word of the Eternal Gospel
Both to the House of Yisro’el & to the Exiles scattered abroad.
For behold, the Combined Days & Nights of their Words
And the combined Time of their Testimony
Had lasted for a total of even 1,260 Days :
And during their Times, they held the Power to shut the Windows of Heaven :
And lo, they also had Power to turn the Fresh Rivers & Fountains to Blood
And to smite those occupying the Land with any Plague they chose to inflict :
And if during the 1260 Days of their Testimony on earth,
If any son of man should attack them
Lo, Fire would issue forth from their mouths to devour them.
And if any Weapon was used against them at all
The same would have been turned back on the attackers
In order to destroy them in the attempt thereof.
And behold, when the 1260 Days of their Testimony was ended
Behold, the Abba Doq’on rose up from the Smoky Abyss
In order to wage un-holy war against them :
And lo, both of them suffered a cruel Death
Even the horrible suffering of the holy Martyrs
Even at the Hands of him who rose from the botom of the Pit.
And lo, their Corpses lay unburied
Even in the midst of the open Streets of the Holy City
Yea, exposed without their being placed in Graves :
And lo, they lay there exposed to the open air
Even for a set Period of times
Even Three & One Half Days & Nights .
And during this time, Goyim of every Race,
Even of every Kindred and Tongue looked on,
And refused them any Burial in the ground [of their ancestors] :
And when the Occupiers of the Land [of Yisro’el] saw them dead,
Behold, they began to rejoice with each other
And to celebrate their Victory over them:
Then lo, they all began offering each other gifts & presents.
For lo, the Two Martyrs had pronounced oracles of evil against them
Even during the period of 1260 Days
Which constituted the times of their Combined Preaching :
And behold, after Three & One-Half Days was fulfilled
Behold, the Breath of Life from EL returned to them
And re-entered the Corpses of the Two Martyrs who were slain.
And lo, they both stood up alive breathing once more
And great Terror fell upon all the Watchers
And a mighty shaking seized all those who looked thereon :
And those looking on heard a Qol from Heaven peal :
And it spake saying : Ascend now, My Righteous Ones,
Even to your assigned places in Heaven !
And lo, the Two Martyrs began to ascend
Even high up into the Firmament of Heaven
And were surrounded by a Luminous Cloud
Even that of the Bright Glory of the Most High
While their Enemies watched on from below
Every one of them trembling in great Fear.
Clear as Mud?
