Yet another angel mentioned in the Apocalypse told John: “Babylon is fallen! is fallen! that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication” (Revelation 14:8). Babylon was the spiritual name for an existing city in the first century AD, and all of John’ readers would have known who he meant. According to Revelation 17:5 she is called mystery Babylon the Great! There she is called a harlot (G4204 – Revelation 17:1) and the mother of harlots (verse-5), and she was responsible for all the blood of the saints and disciples of Jesus (Revelation 17:6). Jesus said Jerusalem was responsible and would be judged for all the righteous blood that was shed from the time of Able to the first century AD, and he included those disciples of his that he would send to her with the Gospel (Matthew 23:34-35; cf. 23:37-38).

Luke tells us that Jesus had come to Jerusalem during the Passover season. The Passover occurs in the spring and incorporates two different feast days—the Passover (one day) and the Days of Unleavened Bread (seven days). During the first century AD, the two were often taken together and referred to as a single Feast. In Luke 22:1 the Feast of Unleavened Bread (seven days) is referred to as the Passover, but the day the Passover lamb was killed occurred one day before the Feast of Unleavened bread (cf. Luke 22:7). The Passover Day was celebrated on the 14th day of the first month, while the Feast of Unleavened Bread was celebrated on the 15th to the 21st day of the first month (Leviticus 23:4-8). The first and last of these days were Sabbaths, annual holy days, but not the seventh day Sabbath. Read the rest of this entry »
