A Brand New Me

Good evening everyone! I hope all of you had a great Easter Holiday. I know I did. My parents came to church with me which is always a blessing.

I wanted to share with you the way that God is working in my life. Since the passing of my grandpa, I feel that God has opened my eyes a little bit more than they have been before.

The past couple of Sundays, I have cried during worship. I don’t know why, I just have. This is a rarity for me though.  Maybe the lyrics are touching me somehow, I don’t know.

Secondly, I have started a Bible reading plan. I found this plan on YouVersion   . I will have the whole Bible read in a year. As a matter of fact, I will admit it, I have never read the complete Bible. This will be a challenge for me, but right now I am on track.

Anyway.. I just wanted to give you all a little update on me.

Until next time readers, God Bless!

Last Supper on a Wednesday?

Good evening readers. I came across this article from Fox News yesterday, and thought I should share it. Easter is coming up this weekend, so I thought it was something to think about.

I really am not into science when it comes to Christianity, so I will be sticking to my beliefs and what the Bible says. Read the article and let me know what you think.

Scientist Claims Last Supper Was a Day Earlier

Published April 19, 2011| FoxNews.com

Christians have long celebrated The Last Supper of Jesus Christ on Maundy, the Thursday before Easter, but new research released Monday claims that evidence shows it took place on the Wednesday before the Crucifixion.

Prof. Colin Humphreys, a scientist at the University of Cambridge in England, believes the mistaken date is due to a calendar mix-up — and says his findings strengthen the case for finally introducing a fixed date for Easter, AFP reports.

In his attempt to pinpoint the exact timing of Jesus’ final meal, Humphreys used a combination of biblical, historical and astronomical research

The Bible’s different versions of Jesus’ Last Supper with his disciples have left researchers puzzled for centuries.

While Matthew, Mark and Luke all say the Last Supper coincided with the start of the Jewish festival of Passover, John claims it took place before Passover, AFP reports.

In his new book, “The Mystery Of The Last Supper,” Humphrey’s concludes that Jesus, along with Matthew, Mark and Luke, may have been using a different calendar than John was.

“Whatever you think about the Bible, the fact is that Jewish people would never mistake the Passover meal for another meal, so for the Gospels to contradict themselves in this regard is really hard to understand,” Humphreys said.

Humphreys’ theory is that Jesus went by an old-fashioned Jewish calendar rather than the official lunar calendar that was in widespread use at the time of his death and is still in use today, AFP reports.

This would put the Passover meal — and the Last Supper — on the Wednesday, explaining how so many events took place between the meal and the Crucifixion.

It would follow that Jesus’ arrest, interrogation and separate trials did not all take place in the space of one night, but occurred over a longer period.

According to Humphreys, the set date for Easter Day should be April 5.

Questions…

Good afternoon everyone. I hope everyone is doing well. It has been a little while since I last wrote. I want to apologize about that.

Life has been really crazy for me these last couple of weeks. I went to the ER with asthma issues. Along with that, my  remaining grandparent passed away April 4th.

A lot has been going through my head lately, mostly related to my grandpa’s passing.

A little back story of my grandpa. He and my grandma were married I believe, 51 years, before she passed away in 1998. What an amazing marriage they had. He was a very outspoken person, but also kept to himself. There are things I really wished I would have talked to him about before is Alzheimer’s got so bad, you couldn’t carry on a conversation with him. I knew my grandpa grew up Catholic, but he was non practicing when I knew him. He made wise decisions about money, which with those decisions, he got to enjoy life after retirement. He was 87 when he passed. He lived a long and wholesome life.

I guess the questions I would ask him, would be the following if we could sit down and chat.

How did you keep your marriage alive and happy all those years?

What are your beliefs about God and Christianity?

I am sure there would be more, but those are the main ones…

Today at church, Pastor Rodney mentioned  questions we have for God, and how those questions really can’t be answered until we meet our maker. Mostly they are questions that begin with the word… Why? I guess the only answer we can have to questions we have for God, should be answered by trusting Him. I know that is hard, and even I am dealing with that right now.

Why is life prolonged at the time of death, when the inevitable is going to happen?

Why do not so great things happen at the worst timing?

If you are the praying type, please pray for my family during these emotional times.

Until next time readers, God Bless..
