This is a Republic, not a Democracy. Let's keep it that way!

An Easter Question Solved

leave a comment »


Upon receiving a book that referred to Christ suffering on the cross for 6 hours, I questioned the accuracy of that statement. I did a little research to see if the Gospels could validate that statement. On the surface it was not clear right away.

 

It was not until I realized that John had referred to the sentencing in the 6th hour, while Mark referred to the crucifixion in the third hour and Mathew had placed the darkness at the 6th hour that I realized we were dealing with two different clocks.

 

Gospel According to Saint Mark
Chapter 15:25
And it was the third hour, and they crucified him.

 

Gospel According to Saint John
Chapter 19:14-15
[14] And it was the parasceve of the pasch, about the sixth hour, and he saith to the Jews: Behold your king.
[15] But they cried out: Away with him; away with him; crucify him. Pilate saith to them: Shall I crucify your king?
The chief priests answered: We have no king but Caesar.

 

Gospel According to Saint Matthew
Chapter 27:45-50
[45] Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over the whole earth, until the ninth hour.
[46] And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying: Eli, Eli, lamma sabacthani?
that is, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
[47] And some that stood there and heard, said: This man calleth Elias.
[48] And immediately one of them running took a sponge, and filled it with vinegar; and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink.
[49] And the others said: Let be, let us see whether Elias will come to deliver him.
[50] And Jesus again crying with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.

 

Let’s Explain:
Mark and Matthew use the Hebrew Clock.
The Third hour (probably related to sunrise) was 9:00 AM
The Sixth Hour was noon.
The Ninth Hour was 3:00 PM.
John’s 6th hour was using the Roman Clock 6:00 AM
So once again John (being the last Gospel) adds new information.

 

Timeline of Events:
6:00 AM – Jesus is Sentenced
9:00 AM – Jesus is Crucified
12:00 PM – Darkness Covers The Earth
3:00 PM – Christ Delivers Himself

 

The Crucifixion took 6 hours.
Did he hang on the cross for the entire 6 hours?
He most likely hung on the cross for the greater part of 6 hours.
His Scourging most likely took place in the hours before 6:00 AM.
He was presented with the crown of thorns before he was sentenced.
They shuffled Christ back and forth between Pilot and Herod under the cover of darkness.

 

Additional Questions Unanswered
What is the explanation for the 3 hours of darkness?

 

Gospel According to Saint Matthew
Chapter 27:45; 27:51-54
[45] Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over the whole earth, until the ninth hour.
[51] And behold the veil of the temple was rent in two pieces, from the top even to the
bottom, and the earth did quake, and the rocks were rent.
[52] And the graves were opened: and many bodies of the saints that had slept, arose.
[53] And they going forth out of the graves after his resurrection, came into the holy city: and appeared to many.
[54] And the Centurion and they that were with him watching JESUS, having seen the
earthquake and the things that were done, were sore afraid, saying: Indeed this was the Son of God.

 

Gospel According to Mark
Chapter 15:33; 15:38-39
[33] And when it was the sixth hour, there was made darkness upon the whole earth until the ninth hour.
[38] And the veil of the temple was rent in two, from the top to the bottom.
[39] And the Centurion that stood over against him, seeing that so crying he had given up the ghost, said, In deed this man was the son of God.

 

Gospel According to Luke
Chapter 23:44-48
[44] And it was almost the first hour: and there was made darkness upon the whole earth
until the ninth hour. (Here Luke seems to use the Roman Clock followed by the Hebrew Clock. Very strange indeed.)
[45] And the sun was darkened: and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst.
[46] And JESUS crying with a loud voice, said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit. And saying this, he gave up the ghost.
[47] And the Centurion seeing that which was done, glorified God, saying, In deed this
man was just.
[48] And all the multitude of them that were present together at that sight, and saw the things that were done, returned knocking their breasts.

 

One might conclude a natural solar eclipse had occurred. There are problems with this explanation, however. July 16, 2186 is predicted to be the longest solar eclipse ever. It is projected to have a duration of 7 minutes and 29 seconds at one point on the earth. Here we are discussing an eclipse of several hours in length and we are celebrating a feast associated with a full moon. Solar eclipses occur during new moons, not full moons. In addition, the darkness is world wide as opposed to local. It is associated with a great earth quake.

 

This eclipse was seen and wondered at as a thing above nature, of Dionysius Areopagita at Thebes, when he was yet a Pagan. Dionys. ep. ad Polycarp. et. ep. ad Apollophane.

TPA Extension Disapproval Needed Now.

with 3 comments


Let’s Do Away With the TPA!

TPA-Kings-Legislate

Here are 6 reasons why either the House or Senate should pass a TPA extension disapproval resolution (based on William F. Jasper’s article entitled, “7 Reasons Why Trade Promotion Authority/Fast Track Must Be Defeated,” published on TheNewAmerican.com, on June 5, 2015, when the current TPA was being considered by Congress):

  1. TPA is essential to passage of a very dangerous updated NAFTA, the forerunner to an EU-like North American Union (NAU), as well as to the potential passage of other sovereignty-killing “free trade” agreements like TPP, which as of April 12 President Trump is considering rejoining.
  2. TPA is an unconscionable abdication of constitutional responsibility by Congress.
  3. TPA not only hands Trump unconstitutional powers given to Obama, it potentially gives them to his successor as well.
  4. TPA is another giant step in the unconstitutional transfer of congressional authority to the president.
  5. TPA also challenges the Constitution by violating the requirement that treaties be ratified by a super-majority vote of two-thirds of the U.S. Senate.
  6. The TPA will speed the transfer of immense power to federal and international judges to eviscerate the Constitution; to strike down federal, state, and local laws; and to legislate from the bench

Change It … or Obey It?

leave a comment »


con-con-flyer-2017Change It … or Obey It? Why the Constitution Is the Solution!
Constitutional Scholar Robert Brown will be in the Area during the last week of April 2017. He will examine the movement advancing an Article V “Constitutional” Convention. It’s amazing to see him illustrate how the changes being proposed by Con-Con advocates would actually do the opposite of what is claimed.  So, if you are new to the issue or if you support the Con-con movement, you will want to come out and hear common sense arguments on how to work within the Constitution to rein in a growing Federal Government. Click the Image or here for a 2 page pdf flyer. The flyer includes a hyperlink to the 3 tour locations, youtube intro, Stop A Con-Con Action Agenda Items, and the JBS homepage. Please share widely. Contact me for donations and advertising opportunities.

Here is a sneak peek of Constitutional Scholar Robert Brown Testimony in Montana before the House Judiciary Committee:
