The Passion of Jesus, the week of his crucifixion, is the most well documented week in all of the Bible. The timing of the week can be established as a high-speed replay of his ministry and therefore of all of human history. Unlike his ministry the week continues past his era and is highly prophetic for future, including end-times, events. There are 3 key sections.
Principles Gives an overview of the shape of the week.
Timing Sets the time ratio for the week by looking at Jesus' time in the tomb. Includes a chart of the week's events.
Harmony Lists of every date and the scripture for the date. Also includes fulfillment headlines for a high-speed 2009-2010 replay.
What follows here is a full index to all articles under this tab. Read them through in order by following the “next” links the top or bottom border of each page.
Details follow in later articles, but the principle for the Passion Week narrative is this: At the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem He began yet another replay of the historical time line of the Bible.
Finding the exact prophetic ratios for Jesus’ Passion week involves a study of Jesus’ time in the tomb. This time was a match to Jonah’s 3 days and 3 nights in the belly of a fish. By determining the total hours, and by making a guess as to what this meant then the math can be seen. With exact math in hand it then becomes possible to study out the rest of the week and fully understand what Jesus was doing...
The process for figuring out Passion Week’s chronology is simply to catalog all the time references in Passion Week. The key word here is all. In the following chart green is used to mark time references. Using those references like puzzle pieces it is possible to put together the week’s schedule using Gospel references alone. The following chart shows the entire week, with all key events drawn.
This website sections provides a harmony of the Gospels based on the historical chronology of the Bible. Jesus replayed the historical chronology of the Bible in his life, his ministry, and his passion. Knowing that structure allows a reconstruction of the Passion Week chronology using the prophetic schedule as the key. There is an article for each timed event which includes the scripture passages as well as modern headline fulfillments when known.
I've placed this here for reference. It is sunset on Saturday night, the first hour of the Biblical Calendar day of the week.
This is the first hour of daylight on Sunday of the Triumphal Entry.
Jesus directs his disciples to fetch a donkey. This event is likely in preparation to the formal entry.
This story matches Adam’s first year.
This entry springs from an obscure reference in Mark 11 where Jesus is said to have gone into the temple, then looked around and it being dark decides to go out to Bethany with the 12.
On the way in on the second morning Jesus cursed the fig tree. The tree would come up again in further parables.
This story is a prophetic match to Enoch’s ascension into the Temple in heaven in 4270 AA. It is also a match to Jesus’ age 12 visit to the temple where he stays behind.
This small reference in two books appears to be the match to Noah’s flood. Matches 6020 AA, the year of Noah’s flood.
The parable matches the flight to Egypt. The keyword is "millstone" which is the trips to Egypt for grain that Joseph had stored up. Jesus’ additional editorial deals with the brother’s lack of forgiveness towards each other. Matches 9071 AA, the year of going to Egypt.
A prophetic match to Korah’s rebellion at the time of Moses. Matches 9481-9540 AA. Notice that it is the elders, chief priests and scribes who come to Jesus. This is a prophetic match to Aaron, Moses, Joshua (scribe) and the 70 elders who went above Mount Sinai for dinner.
Parable of the Vineyard applies generally at the time of Solomon. Solomon behaves prophetically as a type of Christ. Matches the years 9991-10020 AA and more. The parable is telling a story that stretches across the time of the kings.
The parable focuses on the issue of giving to God what he asks. The net is this: Don’t give it to God? Then give it to Caesar. The historical event is either the Assyrian Invasion (as charted here) in 10274-76 AA or perhaps the Babylonian invasion in 10390 AA.
This is a prophetic match to John the Baptist. Several features match. First, time when the true Passover Lamb was sacrificed was when Jesus was crucified. This puts it on the millennium of his sacrifice, or any time on or after 11001 AA.
James and John want to sit on Jesus’ right and left in his kingdom. They will be part of that, they are disciples who match one-on-one to the tribes. The problem is these two are a team by themselves, and do not sit on either side. The other disciples get indignant and the entire episode erupts into an argument.
Jesus took a smaller group of his disciples and then called them to "watch" this is likely a pun on "watch" as in a 3 hour period of the night. Three times, over the next three hours, will Jesus repeat his actions of returning to find these disciples asleep. This carries the time line forward to about midnight.
The passage indicates that Jesus found the disciples "sleeping." The immediate, and well timed to this hour, consequence of the Fort Hood shooting was that the shooter had been under observation even by the FBI. But nobody had taken action. The country's major law enforcement agency was basically "asleep" just like this passage indicates.
At this hour Judas arrives and betrays Jesus with a kiss. This event mimics the tribe of Judah’s conversion to Christianity around 12000 AA. Many interesting parallels between these stories and the prophetic events at the Christianization of Russia. This is also a prophetic match to Satan being bound 1000 years, which began at this era.
Jesus is taken before Annas where he makes several important comments about how everything he did was done in public. This is a prophetic reference to the time of Martin Luther and "Solo-scriptorium."
This scene of the trial finds two direct references to time. The first, mentioning the time until Jesus’ return, is the reference to the "3rd day" rebuilding of the Temple. This is the action Jesus will be part of at his return. The second is Jesus’ prophetic reference to his return in power from the sky. Both of these hit the prophetic era of 13001 AA. Jesus cannot return until the millennium, this is the earliest possible indicated year. (2010 AD)
Jewish leaders gather and decide to send Jesus to Pilot.
The following reference forces Wednesday into the picture since it cannot be before 9:00 AM on Thursday. It is also after an evening arrest which by this reference must be on Tuesday PM.
Timed here simply as sunrise.
Timed as the next hour.
This event lands prophetically at 19020 AA. It is a match to the end of the 1000 generations of 19 years. Note Jesus is "numbered with the transgressors" at this point, as the race can now be "numbered in the census" as anyone passing into their 20th year would be.
Technically, hour 92 is 1 hour past the end of historical time line symmetry about the Exodus back to Adam. Likely this hour is also symmetric, back to what was labeled at the start of this table as "hour 0."
Across the following three hours there was darkness over the land. The darkness continues until the death of Jesus.
This is the 2nd hour of darkness.
This is the 3nd hour of darkness.
At the end of the 3 hours of darkness Jesus dies on the Cross.
This is when Jesus was put in the tomb.
John makes the point that there was a special sabbath, not a normal Sabbath, that caused the quick removal of the bodies from the cross. This special Sabbath is the day that began at 6:00 PM on Thursday, instead of Friday as would be expected for a regular Sabbath.
After the weekly Sabbath the women are able to buy spices.
Mary Magdalene goes to the tomb and finds the tomb empty.
After the disciples left for home over the empty tomb, Jesus appeared to Mary.
On the evening of that first Sunday Jesus appeared.
This hour is a week later, the first day of the second week when the disciples are gathered together again. Famous doubting Thomas.
This date is 40 days after Resurrection Sunday. This is close to Jesus’ departure. It is a prophetic match to the time of the general ascension. It closely matches the end of 19,000 days since the start of the modern day-for-a-year time line. (See 18,700 in the label above.)
This was 50 days later and it is the last day in the story of Jesus’ crucifixion. This is when the power had come.
