Discussion for John 11

    To go with my comment above, if a 1st century Middle Eastern king approached a foreign city on a donkey, he was coming in humility, and peace, as Jesus did riding into Jerusalem..but, if he came riding a horse, it meant he had every intention of taking over, and owning the city....He's coming back....He won't be riding a donkey this time. (Rev19:11)

    The reason Jesus folded the napkin..........In the Middle East in the 1st. century it was custom to leave your napkin not folded, and thrown on the table, when finished eating, but...if the master left his napkin folded on the table, it meant he was not done, and would be returning soon ......and that was the message Jesus left, by folding the napkin....He was making a statement, ..be ready.
  • A disciple
    Why did Jesus fold the napkin that was over His face? Well, one thing, it completely proves the shroud of Turin to be a hoax, and roundly and soundly ensures that NO GRAVEN IMAGE OF CHRIST WAS LEFT for men to be snared by relic worship! They that worship and serve the LORD must worship and serve in the Spirit: if anyone has not the Spirit of Christ, he is not at all His!
  • TJ COLLIER
    Though it is not a salvation issue per se, but it is the scriptures. I see via the folded napkin in the tomb that Jesus rose calmly, in control, taking on the day one step at a time. There is an element of decency and order in so doing. Even after such a bloody, violent, and earth shaking event as His crucifixion, the day of His rising is one of quiet, calm, and peace. Folding a napkin.
  • Olegas Bogdanovas
    I have never considered that Jesus "folded" the napkin in the tomb. Why is this important?

    The fact is that Jesus rose from being dead, and was seen alive by several hundred people. That Jesus rose from the dead is the key of Christianity.
