HIS-story-Messiah -KING-Shows that HE Will Be BACK....

The history behind the John 20:7 account was new to me when I read it!!!
As you know-I read the Old KJV --This is the KJV of John 20:7...

"...and the napkin, that was about his head , not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself."

The master of the house folded his napkin to indicate to his servants -that he would RETURN!!!

A note to the self indulged 'masters' or 'royals' in our government..
This is from an e-message:

Why Did Jesus Fold
the Napkin?

This is one I can honestly say
I have never seen circulating in the
-mails so; I'll start it, if it touches
you and you want to forward it.

Why did
Jesus fold the linen burial cloth after His
resurrection? I never noticed

The Gospel of John (20:7) tells
us that the napkin, which was placed over the
face of Jesus, was not just thrown aside like
the grave clothes.

The Bible takes an
entire verse to tell us that the napkin was
neatly folded, and was placed at the head of
that stony coffin.

Early Sunday morning,
while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to
the tomb and found that the stone had been
rolled away from the entrance.

She ran
and found Simon Peter and the other disciple,
the one whom Jesus loved.. She said, 'They have
taken the Lord's body out of the tomb, and I
don't know where they have put

Peter and the other disciple ran to
the tomb to see. The other disciple out ran
Peter and got there first. He stopped and looked
in and saw the linen cloth lying there, but he
didn't go in.

Then Simon Peter arrived
and went inside. He also noticed the linen
wrappings lying there, while the cloth that had
covered Jesus' head was folded up and lying to
the side.

that important? Absolutely!
Is it really
significant? Yes!

In order to understand the
significance of the folded napkin, you have to
understand a little bit about Hebrew tradition
of that day.

folded napkin had to do with the Master and
Servant, and every

Jewish boy knew this

When the servant set the
dinner table for the master, he made sure that
it was exactly the way the master wanted

The table was furnished perfectly,
and then the servant would wait, just out of
sight, until the master had finished eating, and
the servant would not dare touch that table,
until the master was finished.

Now if the
master were done eating, he would rise from the
table, wipe his fingers, his mouth, and clean
his beard, and would wad up that napkin and toss
it onto the table.

The servant would then
know to clear the table. For in those days, the
wadded napkin meant, "I'm

But if the master got up from
the table, and folded his napkin, and laid it
beside his plate, the servant would not dare
touch the table, because..........

folded napkin meant,

coming back."

What is all this Jesus talk???

December is about the Winter Solstice and Kwanzaa, so get back in line and start goose stepping to Comrade Zero's Amerika!!!!

And if you are going to praise a religious prophet, try the peace loving, beloved Muhammad, a man of joy, harmony and tolerance for all!!!!
