בַּלַּיְלָה הַזֶּה , Yeshua said this at His last Pesakh Seder, the night He was betrayed. He said, from the Aramaic to Hebrew, “You all will deny me “BaLailah HaZeh“… “THIS NIGHT”. Traditionally, we have our children sing a song called “Ma Nishtanah?” And the gist of the song is that Pesakh is different from every other night, so in the song the children beg the question, “Why is “HaLailah HaZeh“/”This Night” different from all other nights?” Yeshua had walked with these men for three and a half years. He’d taught them. He’d tolerated their doubts, their personalities, their misgivings, their arguments and jealousies, and more. He’d shown them miracle after miracle. He’d rescued them. He’d healed their mothers-in-law, He’d paid their taxes, fed them miracle bread, and on and on… and for three of them, He’d been transfigured before them, and they had seen Moshe and Eli-Yahu talking with him on Har Tabor, two of their long-dead and greatest Prophets. And now, on THAT NIGHT, they would all deny Him. And He told Kefa that “BaLailah HaZeh,” you will deny me THREE TIMES”. And one of them would BETRAY Him. Yeshua said nothing by accident, and the way He said it hearkens to a future song of Israel at the Passover…. Remember, this is a JEWISH MEAL, and ALL those in attendance are Jewish. He wanted that EVERY ONE of them should be faithful. Thank Heaven the Eleven RETURNED to Him! I am already anticipating “HaLailah HaZeh” this year….
