10 PM to Midnight
Jesus In Conflict

Thursday March 19, 33 AD

Jesus spent the next two hours in anguished conflict in the outer hall, aware of the coming danger from Agrippa and the likelihood of his being unjustly arrested and executed. He had a way of escape which he chose, out of principle, not to take. By abbey rules he was still in the Nazirite state and could only enter the monastery if he observed the fast time, but he kept to the true time.

JESUS IN CONFLICT

Matthew 26:36-46

Thursday March 19, 33 AD

John's gospel does not deal with the next two hours in the way that the Synoptics do, showing Jesus' conflicts in the outer hall. It substitutes long discourses, in chapters 14, 15, 16 and 17 which have no reference to the events. The reason was that these chapters were written in about 45 AD, when the suffering caused by Agrippa I had passed. Jesus, responsible for John's gospel, wanted it forgotten once he was welcomed in the court of Agrippa II. The chapters were added just as John 21 was added, to introduce a changed doctrine.

10:00 pm

Mark 14:32 The leaders arrived in the outer hall, the abbey, to spend the two hours before midnight.

Mark 14:33 Jesus left the married men on the first row of the congregation annexe, and went to the podium in the hall, where he suffered acute conflicts because of his commitments to opposed political factions at a time when Simon's arrest was imminent.

Mark 14:32

32. Kai erchontai eis chōrion hou to onoma Gethsēmani, kai legei tois mathētais autou, Kathisate hōde heōs proseuxōmai

32. And they (RLR to All Ones Antipas v.31) come{erchomai} at a region of which the Name Gethsemane. And he (RLR to Name, a person, Jesus) says to the disciples of him (Name, Jesus), "Sit (you plu.) here until{heōs} I pray.

32. At 10:00 pm the leaders arrived in the outer hall (Figure 15B). It was used as an abbey, the school for Therapeuts, a more open institution than a monastery. Pilgrims were received there during their visits to Qumran,. holding their meals and ceremonies in the hall. They began their journey from the house of Antipas on the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem, travelling in parties of 120. Their leaders formed a congregation attached to an abbey, and these leaders met in the congregation annexe at Qumran, loc 86, which was interpreted as a pantry by archeologists because of the large number of eating bowls that were stacked there. This room was entered through a 2 cubit wide doorway from the outer hall (Photo LL above).

Antipas came first to the doorway on row 12, the next above row 13 where the leaders of the congregation sat. Row 13 corresponded to the dais step in the vestry, and to the genitals of the Heavenly Man, so there was an association with seed, plants and growth. Since the congregation leaders were given wine at initiation, yet belonged to the lay class of "oil", the name Gethsemane applied to them, made up of the Hebrew words for "winepress" and "oil".

The east center of row 13 was called the "garden" as the seat of John Mark the head of the "Eden" schools for celibate Gentiles. He was also a member of the synagogue congregation and could sit on the west side of the doorway row 12, where he was now told to go.

Mark 14:33

33. kai paralambanei ton Petron kai ton Iakōbon kai ton Iōannen met' autou, kai ērxato ekthambeisthai kai adēmonein

33. And he (RLR to Name, Jesus v.32) receives-beside Peter. And James. And John with him, (genitive, RLR to James). And he (RLR to Name, Jesus, as the three married men could not represent the priestly Name) began to be amazed. And to be troubled.

33. Jesus left the three married men Peter, James Niceta and John Aquila on the first row of the congregation annexe, and went to the rock podium inside the doorway. It is still to be seen there. (PHOTO LL).The abbot Jonathan Annas stood there on row 9, and Jesus as a bishop deputy on row 10. Jesus was suffering acute conflict, knowing that if Simon Magus was not protected by a heavenly intervention at midnight - as Jesus knew would not happen - he would be handed over by Agrippa to Rome, and Jesus would be condemned with him. Jesus was associated with Simon in hostility to Agrippa, but against him on military action. Jesus agreed with Annas on pro-Roman attitudes, but Annas had now allied with Agrippa. Jesus was caught in the many-sided politics, and might well die unjustly.

10:00 pm           (Luke has no verse for this time. Scroll down for next time.)

10:00 pm

Matthew 26:36 Jesus with Antipas arrived at the doorway in the outer hall at 10:00 pm. He directed James Niceta to the west center of the first row of the congregation annexe.

36. Tote erchetai met autōn ho Iēsous eis ho chōrion legomenon Gethsēmani, kai legei tois mathētais, Kathisate autou heōs hou apelthōn ekei proseuxōmai

36 Then Jesus comes{erchomai} with them (RLR to All Ones Antipas v. 35) at a region said to be Gethsemane. And he (Jesus) says to the disciples, sit of it (region) until{heōs} I coming-from{erchomai} there pray.

36. At 10:00 Jesus arrived in the outer hall with Antipas. Jesus stood at first in the east doorway (Figure 15B). The first row of the congregation annexe was called Gethsemane, the "winepress of oil" for village pilgrims who received wine at initiation, but were still in the lay married class, the "oil". Jesus said to James Niceta, "Take your place on the west center of row 13. I start the service in the east doorway with a prayer of confession". Matthew then omits the 5 minutes when Jesus went to the podium for debate with Jonathan Annas. This gospel also omits John Mark's movements, preferring James Niceta, who as Revelation 10 shows was the scribe of Matthew's gospel. (See Jesus of the Apocalypse Barbara Thiering, 1995, Transworld- Doubleday)

10:03 pm           (John has no verse for this time. Scroll down to next section.)

10:03 pm

Mark 14:34 Jesus turned back to John Mark and said that he would not observe the fast time but would still wait for the true time before leaving the married Nazirite state. Consequently he would not be protected in a monastery at the time of Simon's arrest.

34. kai legei autois, Perilypos estin hē psychē mou heōs thanatou. meinate hōde kai grēgoreite

34. And he ( RLR to Name, Jesus, vv. 32, 33 ) says to them (RLR to disciples of him John Mark v.32), " Gloomy{lypē} is my soul until{heōs} Death. Remain here. And watch."

34. After a few minutes with Annas, Jesus turned to John Mark in the doorway and said, "I am still in the Nazirite state and will not observe the fast time which makes this 1 am. While still a layman and not protected in a monastery I may be arrested for complicity with Simon Magus against Agrippa. Observe the fast time yourself, and begin a vigil for a fulfilment of the prophecy."

10:03 pm           (Luke has no verse for this time. Scroll down for next time.)

10:03 pm           (Matthew has no verse for this time. Scroll down for next time.)

10:05 pm           (John has no verse for this time. Scroll down to next section.)

10:05 pm.

Mark 14:35 At the start of the 10:05 pm vigil for celibates Jesus came down to kneel on the congregation row 13. He asked Annas for permission to keep to the true time, not the fast time.

Mark 14:36 Jesus said that since it was only 10:05 pm he was still in the Nazirite state, according to abbey rules, so would not drink the cup of wine that some abbey men took now, at the fast 1:05 am.

Mark 14:37 Jesus found John Mark and Peter on row 13 in the congregation annexe for married men, where a vigil of celibates was not held. John Mark had been sent down by Jewish celibates. Peter refused to hold a vigil, as it would imply that Jesus could act as a priest.

Mark 14:38 Jesus said to John Mark that he should be a permanent celibate and hold vigils. Jesus as the Spirit, the bishop, was ready to give the sermons that Therapeuts heard during their night sessions. But Jesus was still in the married state.

Mark 14:39 Jesus went to the podium and began his sermon.

Mark 14:35

35. kai proelthōn mikron epipten epi tēs gēs, kai prosēucheto hina ei dynaton estin parelthē ap autou hē hōra

35. He (Jesus, subject of participle RLR to subject of verb before speech) coming-before{erchomai} a little{mikros} fell upon of the Earth (genitive). And he (Jesus) prayed in order that if{ei} powerful is, the hour might come-beside{erchomai} from him (Jesus).

35. At 10:05 Jesus came down to the first row of the congregation annexe, the equivalent of the dais step, and knelt to make confession at the start of the night vigil for celibates. He asked Annas on the podium for permission to keep to the true time.

Mark 14:36

36. kai elegen, Abba ho patēr, panta dynata soi, parenengke to potērion touto ap' emou. all' ou ti egō thelō alla ti sy.

36. And he (RLR to Jesus v. 35) said, "Abbot, Father.(vocative) All things powerful to you. Bring-beside This cup from me. Nevertheless not T I will, nevertheless T you (sing).

36. Jesus addressed Annas as both abbot and Pope, saying that the Herodian property was now available to him since he had allied with Agrippa. Jesus would not join Annas in treating this as the fast 1:05 am when some abbey ministers took a cup of wine. Nor would he join him in holding the T shaped cross as a sign of fellowship. Jesus' words were given a different application the following afternoon, when Annas offered a cup of poison to Jesus on the cross and ordered him to drink it.

Mark 14:37

37. kai erchetai kai heuriskei autous katheudontas, kai legei tō Petrō, Simōn, katheudeis; ouk ischysas mian hōran grēgorēsai;

37. And he (RLR to Jesus v. 36) comes{erchomai}. And he (Jesus) finds them (RLR to John Mark his disciples vv. 32, 34) sleeping{katheudō}. And he (Jesus) says to Peter, "Simon, you are sleeping{katheudō}. You (sing.) did not have strength for a number 1 hour to watch.

37. John Mark had been sent down by Jewish celibates to row 13 of the congregation annexe, where a vigil was not held by married pilgrims. As 10:05 pm it was now the fast 1:05 am, which some abbey ministers using the +1 hour treated as the true time for fulfilment. Peter as a married man refused to hold the vigil, and would keep the true time. He would not join in any observance that allowed Jesus to act as a priest.

Mark 14:38

38. grēgoreite kai proseuchesthe, hina mē elthēte eis peirasmon. to men pneuma prothymon hē de sarx asthenēs.

38." Watch (you plu.) And pray (you plu.), in order that you (plu.) do not come{erchomai} at temptation. The M-N Spirit willing or the flesh weak ."

38. Jesus said to John Mark, "You should act like a Jewish celibate and hold a vigil, beginning with an act of confession. You should never go down to row 14, that of Temptation, part way between celibacy and marriage. I as the preaching bishop, the Spirit, am now ready to give the sermons that are given at the night meetings of the Therapeuts. But I am still in the married state. "

Mark 14:39

39. kai palin apelthōn prosēuxato ton auton logon eipōn

39. And again he (RLR to Jesus v.37) coming-from{erchomai} prayed, saying the same Word.

39. Jesus went to the podium, started with a confession and short prayer, and commenced his sermon. The Synoptics do not give the content. John's gospel substitutes discourses composed later.

10:05 pm

Luke 22:40 Jesus having arrived in the outer hall came to row 13 west center of the congregation annexe at 10:05 pm. He directed James Niceta to stay in the western doorway, as a permanent Nazirite.

Luke 22:41 At 10:05 pm Jesus although an important leader knelt in the lowest position, on a kneeler at the west center of row 13, and made confession to begin the vigil.

Luke 22:42 At 10:05 Jesus asked the abbot Jonathan Annas on the podium for permission to observe the true time not the fast time, even though observing the fast time would give him a place to escape to if Simon Magus was arrested.

Luke 22:40

40. genomenos de epi tou topou eipen autois, Proseuchesthe mē eiselthein eis peirasmon

40. He (subject of participle Jesus RLR to subject of verb in v.39) come-about{erchomai} upon of the place said to them (RLR to disciples James Niceta v. 39), " Pray not to come-at{erchomai} at temptation."

40. Luke omits Jesus' debate with Jonathan Annas on the podium in the first 5 minutes. At 10:05 pm Jesus was on row 13 west center of the congregation annexe, preparing for the vigil. He directed James Niceta to make confession and replace John Mark in the west doorway row 12 as a permanent Nazirite.

Luke 22:41

41. kai autos apespasthē ap' autōn hōsei lithou bolēn, kai theis ta gonata prosēucheto

41. And He (subject pronoun) was drawn-away from them (RLR to disciples James Niceta v. 39, 40), as if a throw of a stone, And he (He, Jesus) having put the knees prayed.

41. At 10:05 pm Jesus, although a leader of high status, placed a kneeler on the west center of row 13, at the place of the Stone according to the imagery of testicles. He there made confession to begin the vigil.

Luke 22:42

42. legōn, Pater, ei boulei parenengke touto to potērion ap' emou. plēn mē to thelēma mou alla to son ginesthō.

42. He (Jesus subject of participle to subject of verb in v.41) saying, " Father, if{ei} you in council bring-beside This cup from me, However, not the will of me, nevertheless let yours come about."

42. He prayed to Jonathan Annas on the podium, asking that he should not have to observe the fast time, when some abbey men treating 10:05 pm as a fast 1:05 am had another cup of fermented wine. Jesus wanted to observe the true time, which meant that he was still in the married Nazirite state and could not go into the monastery, even though he could hide there if Simon Magus was arrested.

10:05 pm

Matthew 26:37 Jesus from the east doorway spoke to Peter on row 13 and James Niceta whom he now sent to the west doorway. He told them that he was still in the Nazirite state and was opposed to Agrippa.

Matthew 26:38 Jesus told James Niceta that he was a head of Gentiles, an "Adam" in the Nazirite state. James Niceta was to observe the times as a member of the synagogue congregation, and to observe a short vigil.

Matthew 26:39 Jesus now came down to be with his Gentile leaders, kneeling on the west center of row 13 for the confession at the beginning of the service. Being still in the Nazirite state he refused the cup of wine taken by the abbey men at this time, treated as the fast 1:05 am.

Matthew 26:40 Jesus saw that James Niceta was not keeping a vigil, and that Peter on the east beside Jesus did not keep vigils because he was a married man.

Matthew 26:41 Jesus told Peter to observe a form of the celibate discipline, not be like an ordinary married man. Jesus said he was now ready to give the sermons between 10:05 and 10:55 pm, being a preaching bishop who was still in the married state.

37. kai paralabōn ton Petron kai tous dyo huious Zebedaiou ērxato lypeisthai kai adēmonein

37. And he (subject of participle RLR to Jesus subject of verbs v.36) receiving-beside Peter. And the number 2 Sons of Zebedee, he (Jesus subject of participle to main verb) began to be gloomy{lypē}. And to be troubled.

37. At 10:05 pm when the Therapeuts and villagers began the hour, Jesus directed James Niceta to go to the west side of the doorway, replacing John Mark who had been sent there at 10:03 pm. Peter remained on row 13 east center . Jesus said to his Gentile leaders that that he was still in the Nazirite married state. He was opposed to Agrippa. James Niceta was a "Son of Zebedee" (Simon Magus), because he and his brother John Aquila had been initiated by him, as is recorded in the Clementines. They had subsequently turned against him to join the court of Agrippa. James Niceta being a Gentile was a grade2 in the village ranking, a grade 8 novice for monastic ranking.

Matthew 26:38

38. tote legei autois, Perilypos estin hē psychē mou heōs thanatou. meinate hōde kai grēgoreite met' emou.

38. Then he (RLR to Jesus subject of last verb v.37) says to them (RLR to Sons 2, James Niceta, v. 37), Gloomy{lypē} is the soul of me until{heōs} Death. Remain (you plu.) here. And watch with me."

38. Jesus from the eastern doorway said to James Niceta that he was still in the Nazirite state, so when Simon Magus was arrested Jesus would not be able to hide in the monastery. James Niceta was to observe the time in the west doorway which represented the synagogue congregation. Since he also practiced abstinence, he was to hold the vigil from 10 to 11 pm, hearing the sermons.

Matthew 26:39

39. kai proelthōn mikron epesen epi prosōpon autou proseuchomenos kai legōn, Pater mou, ei dynaton estin, parelthatō ap' emou to potērion touto. plēn ouch hōs egō thelō all' hōs sy.

39. And he (subject of participle RLR to Jesus before speech v.38) coming-before{erchomai} a little{mikros} fell upon a face of him (rule of possession, not Jesus but Peter v.37, genitive). And he (Jesus) saying, " Father of me, if{ei} powerful is, let This cup come-beside{erchomai} from me. However not as I will, nevertheless as you (sing.)

39. Jesus then came to kneel on the west center of row 13, the equivalent of the dais step. He made a confession for the start of the vigil and asked Annas on the podium for permission to remain in the Nazirite state and keep the true time, so that he would not drink the cup of wine that some abbey men took at 1:05 am. But that did not mean that he was fully equal to a villager, only that he was an abbey minister in a temporary Nazirite discipline. His words to Jonathan, expressing some submission, were given a different application the following afternoon, when Annas offered a cup of poison to Jesus on the cross and ordered him to drink it.

Matthew 26:40

40. Kai erchetai pros tous mathētas kai heuriskei autous katheudontas, kai legei tō Petrō, Houtōs ouk ischysate mian hōran grēgorēsai met' emou

40. And he (Jesus v. 39) comes{erchomai} towards the disciples. And he (Jesus) finds them (disciples) sleeping{katheudō}. And he (Jesus) says to Peter, " Thus you (plu.) do not have strength one hour to watch with 1 me."

40. Jesus on row 13 west center was in front of James Niceta in the western doorway. James Niceta did not hold the fast time and did not believe that the fulfilment would come now, although Jesus had said he should stay awake for a vigil for study. Jesus was now beside Peter, as John Mark had gone to the novice's position on row 13. Jesus said to Peter, now addressing him in the plural as a representative, "You are a married man, not keeping the fast time whereby this is 1:05 am for some. You do not keep vigils."

Matthew 26:41

41. grēgoreite kai proseuchesthe, hina mē eiselthēte eis peirasmon. to men pneuma prothymon hē de sarx asthenēs.

41. Watch (you plu.). And pray, in order that you (plu.) do not come-at{erchomai} at temptation. The Spirit is willing, the flesh weak ."

41. Jesus told Peter to keep a vigil, beginning it with the prayer of confession. He should be abstinent, not descending into the fully married state of row 14, coming to the doorway to hear the sermons.Then Jesus said that he as the Spirit, although still in the married state, was now ready to give the sermons from the podium.

Jesus then went on to give two sermons from the podium row 10, each lasting 20 minutes. A revised form of the sermons is given in John chapters 14 and 15. They were reworded in terms of the new situation of 44 AD, when the threat from Agrippa I had passed. Their Word-for-Word belongs in that period.

          (John has no verse for this time. Scroll down to next section.)

          (Scroll down for next time.)

Some other texts of Luke than Vaticanus here add two verses of interest concerning the "bloody sweat" and the "angel" who strengthened Jesus. These texts (Luke 22:43-44) give the first mention to Matthew Annas, the "angel" a member of the council of twelve, who was present at the Last Supper and was present in the outer hall. He was to become the abbot of Gentile abbeys at the schism of AD 43-44. He is not included in the Vaticanus gospel accounts at this point because of the primacy of his later position. The other texts, chiefly the D text and a version of Sinaiticus, illustrate the fact that all Christian monasteries understood the pesher and were treating it in their own way.

43 [ōphthē de autō angelos ap ouranou enischyōn auton.

43. There was seen{eidon} to him (RLR to Jesus v. 42) an angel from heaven strengthening him (Jesus).

43. Matthew Annas, who appears as an "angel" in parts of Acts, was present at the portable altar and ark on rows 6, 7 and 8 that an abbey used. As Jesus knelt on row 13 Matthew came to the podium in Jesus' place, showing greater sympathy with Jesus than his brother Jonathan Annas had done. Matthew followed a stricter Sadducee teaching, that of the "Few, the Elect", while Jonathan held the more liberal views of the "Many".

44. [ kai genomenos en agōnia ektenesteron prosēucheto. kai egeneto ho hidrōs autou hōsei thromboi haimatos katabainontos epi tēn gēn]

44. And he (Jesus) come-about{erchomai} in an agony prayed more earnestly. And the sweat of him (Jesus) came-about as if drops of blood going-down upon the Earth.

44. Jesus made confession by the strict ascetic standards of Essenes that required self-imposed suffering (1Q8: 1-4 ). Since the row he was on was called Gethsemane as the "wine-press of oil", his willingness for martyrdom evoked the "blood" of fermented wine, and his sweat corresponded to oil, for the Essene monastic rule forbade oil on the skin because it was like sweat forbidden to priests. (Josephus, Jewish War 2, 123; Ezekiel 44:18).

11: 00 pm

Matthew 26:42 At 11: 00 pm Jesus again debated with Annas on the podium for the first five minutes. He again insisted on the true time, not the fast time.

42. palin ek deuterou apelthōn prosēuxato legōn, Patēr mou, ei ou dynatai touto parelthein ean mē auto piō, genēthēto to thelēma sou.

42. Again out of a second he (subject of participle RLR to Jesus v.wo subject of verb before speech) coming-from{erchomai} prayed saying, " Father of me, if{ei} This thing is not powerful to come-beside{erchomai} if{ean} I do not drink{pinō} it, let your will come about."

42. At 11:00 pm Jesus again came in front of Annas on the podium during the first five minutes. He stood in the position of the deputy, the first layman. He made the confession, saying, "Pope of me ( a double meaning implying that Annas was his subordinate), Magians do not allow the fast time to be corrected yet. I will not drink from the next cup of wine that some abbey men take for the fast 2:05 am. But you are the ruling abbot."

11:05 pm           (John has no verse for this time. Scroll down to next section.)

11:05 pm

Mark 14:40 At 11:05 pm John Mark finished a one hour study vigil in Magian form and turned away from support of Annas.

40. kai palin elthōn heuren autous katheudontas, ēsan gar autōn hoi ophthalmoi katabarynomenoi, kai ouk ēdeisan ti apokrithōsin autō.

40. And again he (RLR to Jesus v.39) coming{erchomai} found them (RLR to John Mark disciples v. 37) sleeping{katheudō}, were for of them (John Mark) the eyes burdensome. And they (John Mark) did not know{oida} T they (John Mark) might answer to him (Jesus),

40. At 11 and 11:05 pm the process was repeated. John Mark had finished an hour's vigil, using the lamp for reading that had now burned down. As a Magian he was again refusing to join Annas and use the T sign of the cross. He intended to remain loyal to Simon Magus.

11:05 pm

Luke 22:45 (in Vaticanus) At 11:05 pm Jesus again on row 13 west center found James Niceta in the west doorway not expecting a fulfilment at this monastic hour.

Luke 22:46 Jesus told James Niceta to remain permanently unmarried in a Sadducee abbey.

Luke 22:45

45. kai anastas apo tēs proseuchēs elthōn pros tous mathētas heuren koimōmenous autous apo tēs lypēs.

45. And he (RLR to Jesus v. 42) having stood-up from the prayer, he (Jesus) coming{erchomai} towards the disciples found them (disciples) asleep{koimaomai} from the gloom{lypē}.

45. At 11:05 pm after his sermons Jesus was again in row 13 west center in front of James Niceta on row 12 west, the doorway. James Niceta was not expecting the fulfilment of the prophecy at this hour significant for monastics. He wore black as a permanent Nazirite.

Luke 22:46

46. kai eipen autois, Ti kateudete, anastantes proseuchesthe, hina mē eiselthēte eis peirasmon.

46. And he (RLR to Jesus v. 45) said to them (RLR to James Niceta v. 45), " T you sleep{katheudō}. You (plu) standing up pray, in order that you (plu) not come-at{erchomai} at temptation."

46. Jesus said to James Niceta, "Be a Sadducee abbey member, using the sign of the cross. In an abstinent state make confession. Do not go down to the congregation row 13, from where you could descend into the status of a man who is free to be married."

11:05 pm

Matthew 26:43 Back with his Gentile leaders, Jesus found that James Niceta was at the end of his one hour's study vigil, his lamp having burned down.

43. kai elthōn palin heuren autous katheudontas , ēsan gar autōn hoi ophthalmoi bebarēmenoi

43. And he (Jesus subject of participle RLR to subject of verb before speech v.42) coming{erchomai} again found them (RLR to disciples James Niceta v. 40) sleeping{katheudō}, the eyes of them (disciples) were burdensome.

43. James Niceta in the west doorway was also at the end of a one hour's study vigil, the oil in his marked lamp having burned down.

11:35           (John has no verse for this time. Scroll down to next section.)

11:35 pm           (Mark has no verse for this time. Scroll down for next time.)

11:35 pm           (Luke has no verse for this time. Scroll down for next time.)
