Study Hints


Remember that the Jewish day starts at 6 pm in the evening not 12 am like we are use to. This is Friday-the-13thvery important to remember because with that little piece of information you might find some interesting tidbits as you read thru the bible. Example: the first Passover, which took place in the book of Exodus, Passover – 14th of Nisan; first time fell on a Saturday, so when the firstborns were dying in Egypt, could it possibly be Friday the 13th?

When you are reading the bible and the Holy Spirit puts something that doesn’t quite make sense you should take the time to chase it down and you might find some other interesting tidbits of information. Chapter 2 of the Gospel Of John is a good example. The chapter starts out with: On the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there.  ??On the third day of what??. Normally when one reads something like that they go back to the verses before to find out what the thought pattern of Weddingthe writer was but here that doesn’t help  so one needs to find out if that phrase has special meaning. If so, where might you find it? Let’s check Genesis Chapter 1 :9-13, where one will find the first mention(the first time anything is mentioned in the bible it is very important to remember), of the third day and also find that the most likely  reason why there is a wedding on the third day is because of all the days in Creation Week the third day is the only day that God gives a double blessing, which is a very good reason to get married on the third day of the week.

You also find out something else in Genesis Chapter 1:6-8 and that is that God doesn’t bless the second day of the week and you thought you were the only one that didn’t like Monday’s. Remember in verse 26 of Genesis 1 God said “Let us make man in Our image.”

 

Something else that will help you when you are reading the bible, is that when ever the Holy Spirit wants to make sure that He gets a point across to you especially in the Gospel’s. He gives you a little help by showing how upset the Pharisees get at something. Then you should go back and read it again because it is important to us. If it wasn’t, why would the Pharisees get so upset?The Pharisees upset

    Never noticed why the third day. LOL!
    I have to pay more attention to what I’m reading. I tend to skip small details like that!

    Thank you for bringing this to my attention!

      I was like you for a long time, then I met my bible study teacher and he love to run you up a limb and change trees. Do you know where Love is mentioned for the first time?

    This article made me has taught me a lot of things. Ive never known that the Jewish day starts at 6pm and not at 12am. I didn’t know that it can affect the way you read the Bible and make sense of the times that have been mentioned. You have opened my eyes to something that has been in from of my face but kept on ignoring.

    Thank you so much for this!
