Hour Sixteen: The Final Week, The Gospels
The Triumphal Entry
Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem:
behold, thy King cometh unto thee: He is just, and having salvation; lowly,
and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.
All four Gospels, Mt 21:1-9; Mk 11:1-10; Lk 19:29-39; Jn 12:12-16. Nisan
10: “take to everyone a lamb.” Jesus deliberately arranges to fulfill Zech
9:9. This is the only day He allows them to proclaim Him King (Lk 19:38).
Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in
heaven, and glory in the highest. Lk 19:38 (quoting Psalm 118)
And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto him,
“Master, rebuke thy disciples.”
Why? What for? The Pharisees assure our noticing the significance!
(Hallel Psalm: Ps 118:26).
And He answered and said unto them, “I tell you that, if these should hold
their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.”
Jesus held them accountable to recognize this very day. (Lk 19:41-44). This
was the 10th of Nisan, prior to the Passover on the 14th of Nisan, A.D. 32.
The 69 Weeks
And when He was come near, He beheld the city, and wept over it, Saying,
If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong
unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes. For the days shall come
upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee
round, and keep thee in on every side, And shall lay thee even with the ground,
and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon
another, because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation.
And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for
himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city
and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the
end of the war desolations are determined.
After the 69th, before the 70th: Karat, execution; death penalty (Lev 7:20;
Ps 37:9; Prov 2:22).
“Not for Himself”: nothingness: rejection, substitution.
An interval, or gap, clearly required by v. 26: events described are after
the 69th and prior to the 70th week: Messiah “cut off” (karat = executed);
The people of “the prince that shall come” = historically, the Romans.
Thus, the Prince to come will be of the Roman Empire (but NOT
necessarily from Europe!) The sanctuary will be destroyed, etc. 38 years
are included with the destruction of Jerusalem in A.D. 70. Over 1970 years
have transpired so far.
“Flood”: diaspora. Titus Vespasian: 38 years later (not 3½!).
Verse 25 69 Weeks
62 weeks Verse 26
Verse 27 70th Week
Interval also implied: Isa 61:1,2 (re: Lk 4:18-20); Rev 12:5,6. Also:
Isa 54:7; Hos 3:4,5; Amos 9:10,11; (Acts 15:13-18); Micah 5:2,3; Zech
9:9,10; Luke 1:31,32; 21:24
Interval defined: Luke 19:42 until Rom 11:25. This interval is the
period of the Church, an era kept secret in OT: Mt 13:34,35; Eph 3:5,9
– Born at Pentecost: Col 1:18; 1 Cor 12:13; Acts 1:5, 11:15-16.
– Prerequisites: Atonement (Mt 16:18, 21); Resurrection (Eph 1:20-
23); Ascension (Eph 4:7-11; spiritual gifts only after ascension).
[Interval implied in 24 references] “Israel” is never used of the Church
(73X). Gal 6:16 is misunderstood, by ignoring the kai in the Greek which
clearly distinguishes the two groups. It seems that the Lord deals with
Israel and the Church mutually exclusively. [Example: Chess Clock]
