26 So they walked and came to Moses and Aaron and all the assembly of the sons of Israel in the wilderness of
Paran, at Kadesh. And they came bringing back word to them and all the assembly and showing them the fruitage of the land.
27 And they went on to report to him and say: We entered into the land to which you sent us out, and it is indeed flowing with milk and honey, and this is its fruitage (Numbers 13).
14 And the days that we walked from Kadesh-barnea until we crossed the torrent valley of Zered were 38 years, until all the generation of the men of war had come to their end from the midst of the camp, just as Jehovah had sworn to them [so the murmurers died during the first 38 years of the 40 year wilderness penalty] (Deuteronomy 2).
So the brought back the bad report from the spying to Moses in Kadesh. Then 38 years later all the generation that murmured and was old enough to be registered was dead.
1 After these things there was a festival of the Jews [the
'festival of the Jews' that Jesus actually attends is the 2017Sivan14 first
new Watchtower Passover],
and Jesus [1NC reserves] went up to
Jerusalem [The administration of the LWs].
2 Now there is in Jerusalem at [epi with dative] the [gate] for-sheep [probatikoV adjective] [the Passover sheep that are to be sacrificed at the festival of the Jews. The gate opens on 2017Sivan10-12 and the sacrifice occurs on 2017Sivan14] a pool designated in-Hebrew Bethzatha [Meaning House of Olives, or Bethesda in Aramaic, meaning house of rushing water or house of mercy. A Hebrew noun but not a proper noun, not a name of a person or town, but the name of a thing. So it does not count since the account is in Greek] [The house of the LWs, entered through water baptism - the house of olives - oil for priests - so a house of priests. A house of rushing water - quickly last minute baptism. A house of mercy on the faithful. Olives are harvested in Tishri/Heshvan in Israel], with 5 colonnades [a colonnade is a set of pillars holding up a canopy] [The canopy is the saints that will come into the church, the pillars are the priests. These two groups are collected for 5 months from 2017Sivan7 - 2017Tishri6, when the 4EC water baptism ends for humans and 2017Heshvan6, when we baptise the descended 1NC kings into Zoar so that they can take over from us (having forbidden them like John did with Jesus, for 5 months). Also there are 5 groups of saints. The Jewish 1NC reserves (Issachar), the proselyte 1NC reserves (Zebulun), 2NC Watchtower Kings and Lords (Manasseh), 2NC worldly Kings and Lords (Ephraim), 2NC human baptised Lords (Benjamin) - the colonnades surround the pool and provide entrance into it - see U192].
3 In these a multitude of the sick [ones], blind [ones], lame [ones] and withered [ones], was lying down [counting as 8x. These are 195 days of extra 1AC entrance from 2016Adar16 to 2017Elul30, the end of the Sabbath year for Abraham, which is 8 months. Only the man sick for 38 years was told to get up pick up his bed and walk. But these others in the colonnades do eventually get in the pool, for their position declares that].
4 Because an angel [Elijah4] according to season/appointed time [kairoV] [an appointed time - of a festival?] would come down into the pool [starting off the LW congregation on 2000Elul16 a festival of the LWs at the time, this was the appointed time to start the church. Then on 2000Tishri16, Jamie was baptized, making 3 LWs] and disturb the water [when Elijah4 finally gets the fire sign correct! - he agitates the church from their unperturbed and resting sleeping state into action - this occurs at an appointed - i.e. scripturally predicted time.]. The first [one] therefore to step in after disturbance of the water would become cured from whatever sickness [noshma] he was afflicted with. [Saints come into the church first. It is first come first serve] [Vatican B does not have this verse but the Alexandrinus early Latin versions and the Syriac Peshitta have it] [This is not the MO of God. You must have faith to be cured yes. But the demons could cure too using the level playing field card. But to have cripples waiting around every day and jumping in the pool whenever a leaf fell into it, may be very funny to demons, but is not the love of God]. [The count does work - we think, so perhaps this demonic game is canonically recorded since it tell us how saints are chosen??]
