My guess is 430 years. :)
Correct. Precisely to the day, despite the absurd argument to the contrary, of which there are more than a few. This predicated upon the erroneous assumptions of genealogies = chronologies.

We read that "the Jews’ Passover was at hand" [John 2:13],

How is this different to "The Lords Passover", and Why ?

Mark 16:1 says Mary Magdalene and her companions bought spices
“when the Sabbath was past.” They were planning to prepare these
ointments and spices so that they might anoint the body of Jesus.

Yet Luke 23:56 says they prepared these spices and then rested on
the weekly Sabbath day. Compare these two texts carefully.

Mark said these women bought the spices after the Sabbath was past.
Luke said they prepared the spices before the Sabbath arrived.

Why the difference ?

Simplest answer: They women purchased ointments TWICE.

Hmmmm :unsure:, could it have something to do with ......................

Matthew 26:11-13 King James Version (KJV)
11 For ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not always.

12 For in that she hath poured this ointment on my body, she did it for my burial.

13 Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, there shall also this, that this woman hath done, be told for a memorial of her.

I had to look it up........

Google said 8 times. Is this correct? :unsure:
This makes me ponder this...we see that Moses is a type of Christ in so much of His account and history. If we see that he ascended and descended 8x's (something i do not know, but will go look as you already did), can we see this pattern in the life of Christ in anyway? I'm not suggesting that we need to or anything, I am just curious.

Question: what are the names of Daniels companions?
Now among them from the sons of Judah were Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah. Then the commander of the officials assigned new names to them; and to Daniel he assigned the name Belteshazzar, to Hananiah Shadrach, to Mishael Meshach and to Azariah Abed-nego.

Well the Jews call the whole week of unleavened bread Passover. The Lord specified one day the 14th of Nisan as the Passover day. The very next day is an annual Sabbath (15th). After this annual Sabbath is when Mary bought the spices. The 15th fell on Thursday that year. Friday they bought the spices and mixed them, then they had to rest for the weekly Sabbath. So both are true, just different Sabbaths. :cool:

Question: where did the (latter) Anointing of Jesus take place?
I think this is it:
Matt. 26:6, 7 "Now when Jesus was at Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, a woman came up to him with an alabaster flask of very expensive ointment, and she poured it on his head as he reclined at table."

Question: how many times did Moses ascend (and descend) Mt. Sinai?
I had to look it up........

Google said 8 times. Is this correct? :unsure:
Do you think the 8 times includes the very 1st time with the "burning bush" talk with God that Moses had? Perhaps the correct answer is 9...................:unsure:

Well the Jews call the whole week of unleavened bread Passover.
The Lord specified one day the 14th of Nisan as the Passover day.
The very next day is an annual Sabbath (15th).
The three Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke show that on the night Jesus
Christ was betrayed, He and His disciples prepared and kept the Passover
(Matthew 26:18,Mark 14:12, 16; Luke 22:15)

The Jews, however, kept it 24 hours later (John 18:28).

The Lords Passover begins at sunset, at the beginning of the 14th. At the time of Christ
The Jewish community observed their Passover on the 15th beginning at sunset.

Lets see what happened in the past

They kept the Passover on the correct day when they were in the wilderness (Numbers 9:5).
When they entered into the Promised Land, they were still all in agreement (Joshua 5:10).
King Josiah kept the Passover on the 14th (2 Chronicles 35:1). We also read in Ezra’s time
they were still keeping it on the 14th (Ezra 6:19), and this was about 519 b.c.

The Jewish confusion most likely arose in the third century before Christ.
The Palestinian Jews were under Egyptian control from 301 to 198 b.c.

“While the Egyptians allowed the Jews to retain their ancient calendar, there was a
change made in the beginning of the day—it became common to begin the day at sunrise.
This custom was adopted, and persisted among the Jews even down to New Testament times

Jesus Christ indeed kept the right day [14] and that it is the Jews
who today keep Passover on the wrong day, on the[15]

After this annual Sabbath is when Mary bought the spices.
The 15th fell on Thursday that year. Friday they bought the spices and mixed them,
then they had to rest for the weekly Sabbath. So both are true, just different Sabbaths.
Yes correct :cool:
