    Not only does echad have a value of 13, but also the word for love (havha). The heart of the Father revealed.

    Dear Bill,
    I really enjoyed your video on the Tallit. There is one area of your comments that I have a concern about. I know of no scripture that says that Jesus was beat with only 39 stripes. Jesus was not whipped by the Jewish authorities but the Roman soliders. My understanding is that Jesus was whipped with the cat of nine tails. If you are correct and Jesus was only whipped with 39 stripes, that would mean that the roman solider took the cat of nine tails and struck Jesus four times. Then the solider would have had to remove 6 of the leather straps which would leave a total of three and then struck him the fifth time to complete the 39 stripes. My understanding is that Jesus was whipped beyond recognition. Which means he probably received 100’s of stripes and not 39. It is true that if the Jews did the whipping, they would have stopped at 39 stripes.

    Thank you very much and Shalom.

      Walter; first of all, forgive me for just getting back to you on this but I had to go back and listen to what I said because I did that video 15 years ago. As far as the number of times he was struck with a whip, I don’t think we can be absolutely certain of anything except that he was whipped. As far as the 39 scourges, that is based on Mosaic law I don’t think the Romans would have been bound, necessarily, to honor that. However, Pilate seemed very sensitive to Jewish law and tradition when it came to Y’shua’s execution. Furthermore, considering that everything about His crucifixion lined up perfectly with Scriptural patterns, I wouldn’t be surprised if it was 39 blows with the scourge. As far as the number of strands in the whip, obviously they would not have stopped and removed them from the whip. In the final analysis, I can’t be 100% certain of just how many stripes He received but I can be certain of what they purchased for you and me. Shalom.
