A Bible Comparison

1The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre.
2Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have taken away the LORD out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they have laid him.
3Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the sepulchre.
4So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre.
5And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying; yet went he not in.
6Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie,
7And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself.
8Then went in also that other disciple, which came first to the sepulchre, and he saw, and believed.
9For as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must rise again from the dead.
10Then the disciples went away again unto their own home.
11But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping: and as she wept, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre,
12And seeth two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.    
 -- John 20: 1 - 12

When Jesus was gone from the tomb, what did John, Peter and Mary Magdalene see?
They saw the  blood of Jesus was on the linens. The linens were laying on the slab in which He was placed after He died. His linens were still there on the slab when John, Peter and Mary got there but Jesus was not there!  On the slab where Jesus had been there were 2 charbiums. One cherabium was at the head  of the slap and the other cherabium was at the foot of the slab.

Does this remind you of something else? 

The ark of the covenant, the Mercy seat!  The Mercy Seat on the Ark is where the blood of the sacrifice was placed.  And there were two cherbamiums. One cherabium was on one side of the ark and another cherabium was on the other side. 

I adore the little things like this!

  1. I think scripture is full of treasures-some big and some small. I love it! Enjoy your day and God bless.
