From: Sophereth at Kirjath Sepher
To: those that will hear and believe and do, by faith,
. continuing on with the When of worship.
. I want to show you an interesting thing about the word: EVENING.
. the words EVEN and EVENING. when you read this word in the scripture, for instance, Exodus 12:6, Numbers 9:3 (several more places that I can’t find this afternoon. I will post them when I come across them), I have noticed that the KJV will have a note in the margin that says: ‘between the two evenings’.
. I want to show you what J.H. Hertz says about this word in: The Pentateuch And Haftorahs Second Edition. page 254: dusk. Better, towards even (M. Friedlander); Lit. ‘between the two evenings’. According to the Talmud, the ‘first evening’ is the time in the afternoon when the heat of the sun begins to decrease, about 3 o’clock; and the ‘second evening’ commences with sunset. Josephus relates that the Passover sacrifice ‘was offered from the ninth to the eleventh hour’, i.e. between 3 and 5 pm.
. there we have another witness.
. our Passover Lamb, the Lord Jesus, was taken and crucified at the third hour. 9:oo am. at the hour of the morning sacrifice.
. darkness covered the earth from the sixth to the ninth hour. from noon until 3:oo pm.
. the Lord Jesus gave up the ghost, He died, He offered Himself. for us. at the ninth hour. 3:00 pm. at the time of the evening sacrifice. that day, He was the evening sacrifice…
. all exactly according to the pattern that God showed to Moses in the mount. Hebrews 8:5.
