The night before His death Y’shua the Messiah instituted a renewed covenant with a renewed Israel, represented by its tribal heads. That night He explained to those leaders how life under the Renewed Covenant would be very different from all that had come before. He told them about new endowments they would receive in the Renewed Covenant as well as setting out what was most important. His comments remind us of Jeremiah 31:34; “and they shall teach no more every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know YHWH; for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest of them.” That night He told His Talmidim how they could realize that prophetic promise to truly know God and what that would mean for them – and for us. Perhaps most important of all, He told them what they and we must do to Stay in the Renewed Covenant.
Continuing our discussion about Judas Iscariot, we look into the prophecy of Zechariah 11 / Zachar’yah 11, written 500 years in advance of the actual history that fulfilled the prophecy. This amazing prophecy not only foretells actual events fulfilled by Judas Iscariot, but it foretells events of the entire period from the coming of Messiah to the Roman massacre of 67 CE at the mountain fortress of Gamla, through the destruction of Jerusalem and its Temple, all the way to the final destruction of the Nation of Judah in the Bar Kokba / Bar Cochba / Ben Koziba revolt. The enigmatic prophecy of Zechariah 11 / Zachar’yah 11 is unlocked for the first time in the commentary by Eliyahu ben David entitled: “From The Shepherd of YHWH to the Shepherd of Nothing” available at the http://www.tsiyon.org/ website. This program expounds on important highlights of that commentary. Zechariah, in this prophecy, answers the question; “How could God allow calamity to fall upon His Covenant people, the Jewish Nation?” Finally, there is a detailed and accurate answer to that question!
