The Fortieth Miracle of Messiah:
וַיִּגְּשׁוּ אֵלָיו עִוְרִים וּפִסְחִים בַּמִּקְדָּשׁ וַיִּרְפָּאֵם׃ וַיְהִי כִּרְאוֹת רָאשֵׁי הַכֹּהֲנִים וְהַסּוֹפְרִים אֵת הַנִּפְלָאוֹת אֲשֶׁר עָשָׂה וְאֵת הַיְלָדִים הַצֹּעֲקִים בַּמִּקְדָּשׁ וְאֹמְרִים הוֹשַׁע־נָא לְבֶן־דָּוִד וַיִּחַר לָהֶם׃ וַיֹּאמְרוּ אֵלָיו הֲשֹׁמֵעַ אַתָּה אֶת־אֲשֶׁר אֹמְרִים אֵלֶה וַיֹּאמֶר יֵשׁוּעַ אֲלֵיהֶם שֹׁמֵעַ אָנֹכִי הֲכִי לֹא קְרָאתֶם מִפִּי עוֹלֲלִים וְיוֹנְקִים יִסַּדְתָּ עֹז׃ וַיַּעַזְבֵם וַיֵּצֵא אֶל־מִחוּץ לָעִיר אֶל־בֵּית־עָנְיִי וַיָּלֶן שָׁם׃
נִגְּשׁוּ אֵלָיו עִוְרִים וּפִסְחִים בְּבֵית הַמִּקְדָּשׁ וְהוּא רִפֵּא אוֹתָם. כִּרְאוֹת רָאשֵׁי הַכֹּהֲנִים וְהַסּוֹפְרִים אֶת הַנִּפְלָאוֹת אֲשֶׁר עָשָׂה וְאֶת הַיְלָדִים הַצּוֹעֲקִים בַּמִּקְדָּשׁ, “הוֹשַׁע־נָא לְבֶן־דָּוִד!”, נִתְמַלְּאוּ כַּעַס וְאָמְרוּ לוֹ: “אַתָּה שׁוֹמֵעַ מַה שֶּׁאֵלֶּה אוֹמְרִים?” הֵשִׁיב לָהֶם יֵשׁוּעַ: “כֵּן, הַאִם מֵעוֹדְכֶם לֹא קְרָאתֶם, ‘מִפִּי עוֹלְלִים וְיוֹנְקִים יִסַּדְתָּ עֹז’?” לְאַחַר מִכֵּן עָזַב אוֹתָם וְיָצָא אֶל מִחוּץ לָעִיר, אֶל בֵּית עַנְיָה, וְלָן שָׁם. פ
The blind and lame approached him (Yeshua) in the Temple, and he healed them. When the chief priests (kohanim) and scholars (soferim) saw the wonders he performed and the children crying out in the Temple and saying, “Hoshea-na (הוֹשַׁע־נָא-Save [Israel] now!) to the [Messiah] ben David!” they became filled with anger. They said to him, “Do you hear what they are saying?” Yeshua said to them, “I hear it. Have you never read, ‘From the mouths of children and nursing infants you have founded (established) strength?’ He left them, went outside the city to *Beit-Ani (Bethany), and spent the night there.”
*Beit-Ani (בֵּית־עָנְיִי) near Jerusalem, in Aramaic means “House of My Misery, Affliction, and Poverty.” This village previously known to be a sanctuary for lepers was the home of Lazarus, Miryam, Marta, and Shim’on the Leper (שִׁמְעוֹן הַמְצֺרָע). The Messiah raised Lazarus from the dead and he healed many who were afflicted with leprosy. This village of the House of My Misery, Affliction, and Poverty testifies to th spiritual plight of all of us. For according to Moses, the prophets, and the Messiah Yeshua our entire human race suffers from a spiritual condition of impurity (leprosy), poverty, and death due to the fact that we have “all sinned” come short of the moral perfection that is required by God. Fortunately, this universal condition of sin and our estrangement from God can only be remedied by the redemptive help of His Messiah Yeshua (יֵשׁוּעַ-“Salvation of Adonai”).
Opening-up questions and clues:
The following opening-up questions and clues are provided as an introduction to this study on the 40th Miracle of Messiah:
The Eleventh Corporate Miracle of Messiah:
Today’s *corporate miracle of “Many healed in Jerusalem,” is the Eleventh corporate miracle of Twelve corporate miracle events that occur in the testimony and witness of the Seven Signs and Forty-nine Miracles of Messiah.
*There are Twelve recorded corporate miracles of the Messiah (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12). The number Twelve is a symbol of the “governance” of the nation of Israel and its people. Among these Twelve corporate miracles of Yeshua there are two very unique small group miracles: where one, he delivered Twelve of his disciples from a fierce storm by walking on the waters of the Sea of Galilee to their boat, getting in, calming the storm, and then instantly transporting the Twelve and their boat to the shore of Kefar Nachum (Capernaum); and two, when Yeshua healed a group of Ten lepers. These Twelve corporate miracles of deliverance and healing are a witness to the Messiah’s ministry to all of the House of Israel. Like the Messiah (Individual-Servant) our people of Israel (National Servant) are uniquely called (destined) by Adonai (the LORD) our Father and our God to serve Him and all the nations, peoples and families of the world as a special corporate body (nation) of Servant-leaders.
