Did you EVER wonder why the linen cloth was folded?
The Gospel of John (20:7) tells us that the napkin, which was placed over the face of Yeshua was not just thrown aside but FOLDED after His resurrection.
Why was this so significant & important…
Well in order to understand why you have to understand a little bit about Hebrew tradition of that day, & what a folded napkin meant between a Master & Servant.
A servant would set the dinner table for the master, and then wait just out of sight, until the master had finished eating. 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, clean his beard, and would wad up that napkin & toss it onto the table. The servant would then know to clear the table. For in those days, the wadded napkin meant, 'I'm done'.
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 the folded napkin meant, 'I'm coming back!'
So Yeshua folded the napkin to let anyone who came looking for Him know that He is COMING BACK!!!! Amen…
Shalom, God bless & have a GREAT day!!!
