If you are a devout and religious adherent of the full Law (remember "Thou shall not murder") and the only thing keeping you from killing Jesus is the fear of the people's reaction, friend you have more problems than just mere public inconvenience; you have issues with the very Law that you presume to uphold. Where in the Law does it say "it's okay to murder a suspected prophet (who is followed by signs and wonders like no other) as long as doing so does not incite a riot during national feasts"?

The Law in all honesty is not condemning Jesus, the hatred of sinful lawless men hiding behind layers of corrupted oral tradition is. The blemish-less passover lamb is being examined and proven worthy by the Law, the filthy blood stained hands of the intermediary high priests in need first and foremost of their own cleansing prior to any national sacrifice. This is not their sacrifice, this is God the Father's.

At the very first passover there were no priests, no precedence nor tradition, only the blood of the lamb between their lives and the angel of death, between men/women and their maker's own brand of complete deliverance; only one studdering messenger relaying the instructions. On this passover now again there is no human intermediary, no high priest beforehand has been cleansed, they are not offering the sacrifice for the greater nation's purification, but for their own personal continuance and sanity in their woeful iniquity.

We have sensed the importance of the prophetical or similarity of type of the Passover to the justification of Jesus. Now perhaps we sense the same importance concurrently of the same biblical type condemning the associated priests.

Key Messages:

kjv@Matthew:23:37 @ O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!

kjv@Matthew:12:14 @ Then the Pharisees went out, and held a council against him, how they might destroy him.

kjv@John:5:18 @ Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God.

kjv@1John:5:18 @ We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.
