Michael Rood is a nondenominational minister who has spent a lifetime researching the chronological aspects of the Bible. Today, with the help of NASA and the written record, Michael Rood believes with absolute certainty that Jesus’ ministry was only 70 weeks long (a little over one year) beginning with his baptism in AD 27 and his death on the cross Passover AD 28.
The Passover Lamb
One HUGE factor in helping one believe Christ’s ministry really was only one year long (as opposed to 3½ years, as most believe today) is God’s specific requirements for the Israelite’s Passover Lamb back in Egypt. How so? Because those requirements were ALL confirmable prophecy about the coming Messiah, Jesus Christ, who would be forever known as the Lamb of God!
The lamb was to be as follows:
A male (Exodus 12:5)
Without blemish (Exodus 12:5)
No bone broken (Exodus 12:46)
Eat its Flesh (Exodus 12:8)
Strike blood on wooden door posts (Exodus 12:7)
Choose it on tenth day of Nissan (Exodus 12:3)
Kill it on the fourteenth day of Nissan (Exodus 12:6)
One year old (Exodus 12:5)
These eight requirements were fulfilled precisely by Jesus, in the fact that he was a man, having never sinned (without blemish), didn’t have a bone broken in his body (even while on the cross), taught his flesh must be eaten for eternal life, blood stained the top and two sides of a wooden cross, was chosen on the tenth of Nissan (riding into Jerusalem on a donkey), and was killed on Passover, the fourteenth of Nissan! Wow! So, what makes you think God’s requirement for the lamb to be of the first year (one year old) was not also fulfilled in Jesus? It almost certainly was! And thus, it makes sense that Christ’s ministry was very likely only one year long!
So, if Rood is correct that Jesus Christ DIED in the year AD 28, this means Earth’s 4,000 year was that year, and thus Earth’s 6,000 year (and the return of Jesus Christ) will be year AD 2028!
