The other students had gone inside. It was just the teacher and I sitting outside in one of the gardens tha belonged to the school. The sun was just beginning to set.
“When was the last day of Messiah’s life?” he asked. “When did it begin?”
“Friday,” I replied. “Friday morning.”
“No,” he said. “You forget. When does the Hebrew day begin?”
“The Hebrew day always begins at sundown, the night before.”
“So when did His last day begin?”
“At sundown. Thursday night…at the time of the Last Supper, the Passover.”
“Yes,” said the teacher. “As the sun set over Jerusalem, that’s when it all began…His last day…And everything turned toward His suffering and death. It all began at sunset with the Passover and the Lamb. He then went out to the Garden of Gethsemane where they arrested Him and brought Him to the priests. They put Him on trial and condemned Him to death. In the morning they took Him to Pontius Pilate. He was then beaten, mocked, scourged, and led through the streets of Jerusalem to be nailed to the cross. He suffered in agony for hours and then said, ‘It is finished,’ and died. They took down His body and laid it in t a tomb. The sun set over Jerusalem, and the day was finished. It all took place that exact time period, from sunset to sunset. Now what is the day of man?” he asked. “The day when man was created?”
“The sixth day.”
“And when is the sixth day?”
“And when does the sixth day begin?”
“On Thursday night at sundown, and it ends on Friday night at sundown…from sundown to sundown, the sixth day.”
“So it all had to begin at sunset and last until the following sunset. He accomplished it all on the sixth day, the day of man. He died for the sins of man, the guilt of man, and the fall of man. He did it all on the day of man to accomplish the man’s redemption. And it was on the sixth day as well that man was first given life…So now in Messiah, the children of man can again be given life and again, find life, as in the beginning…on the sixth day.”
The Mission: The life of man is given on the sixth day. Receive your life, your breath, and your new creation in the sixth day of Messiah.
