    Thanks Joe for playing. You need to be more specific though. The verse I’m after is not in the book of Kings. Keep trying!

    God Bless You
    Joe

    1) Book of Leviticus : Chapter 23:26 to 32 which is about the feast of the atonement also known as Yom Kippur

    2) The arrest of peter and john

    1) Book of Leviticus : Chapter 23:26 to 32 which is about the feast of the atonement also known as Yom Kippur

    2) The arrest of Peter and John found in Acts 4

    Not sure if this is what you are referring to but here goes anyway:

    The Temple had what was known as the temple guards. The priestly officer who presided over them was known as the Captain of the Guard or Captain of the Temple. In Jeremiah 20:1 we read of a certain Pashhur who was “chief officer in the house of the LORD.”

    In Luke 22:4 we read of Judas conspiring with the chief priests and officers on how to betray Christ.

    In Acts 5:24-26 we see the captain of the temple coming to arrest Peter and John.

    I could not specifically find a scripture verse that describes the function / role of the Captain of the Temple, other sources indicate that this individual was in charge of many administrative functions. Specifically he was also charged to “take over” in case the Chief Priest became impure during the feast of Yom Kippur which is described in Lev 23:26-32.

    Sorry Joe… still not what I’m after… I like your effort! Let me give you some pointers:

    1) Tell me who the Captain of the Temple is? What is his significance in the Temple hierarchy. Show me the passage that depicts his position, as well as other details that point to his New Testament fulfillment.

    2) Then tell me WHO is his fulfillment and was passage makes this clear.

    Hint: Its the passage in the NT, that makes this clear, that will tell you which OT passage I’m after.

  7. CatholicHack

    nice try Roy… keep digging… its there. I’ll give you another hint…. the Captain of the Temple has other names in the OT.

  8. Roy Ornelas

    I forgot to add the arrest of Christ in John 18:12-13

    “12 So the band of soldiers and their captain and the officers of the Jews seized Jesus and bound him. 13 First they led him to Annas; for he was the father-in-law of Ca’iaphas, who was high priest that year”

  9. Roy Ornelas

    I hope I am not digressing but using your extra hint, other terms of Captain of the Temple or Temple Guards include Excutioners and slaughterers.

    In Dan 2:14 we see Daniel consult Arioch who was in charge of the Kings executioners.

    In Mark 6:27 we see King Herod sent his executioner to behead John the Baptist.

    Another Old Testament allusion is in the book of Genesis. In there we see how Joseph was sold to Potiphar who was Pharoah’s captain of the guard (see Gen 37:36, Gen 39:1) and so this could also be fulfilled in Luke 22:4 where Judas betrays Christ.

    But I still cant specifically find an exact verse that describes the Captain’s function in the old Testament.

  10. joe sales

    answer to part 2:

    acts 5:24 Now when the high priest and the captain of the temple and the chief priests heard these things, they doubted of them whereunto this would grow.

    jesus is the fulfillment.

  11. CatholicHack

    Your thinking of a military Captain… that’s not who this man was. His role is liturgical not military. Maybe this one is a lot tougher than I thought. Let me give another hint: Segan ha-Kohanim.

    Ok… now this should be soft-ball… you must nail the OT verse that corresponds to the NT verse the reveals the Segan ha-Kohanim’s NT fulfillment. Its a person/position.

    Now… its way too easy.

  12. CatholicHack

    In a way Jesus is the absolute fulfillment to everything found in the OT however, there is a much more literal fulfillment of this OT prototype that is a powerful image and reality to the Kingdom of God. Keep digging!

  13. CatholicHack

    Sorry Joe… the “Captain” was a person who held an “office”… the NT fulfillment of this OT prototype is also a person who holds an office. Who is that person? What is that office? Where is the passage in the OT & the NT that make this clear?

  14. Roy Ornelas

    Oh no Joe. — Office?

    Are referring to Issiah 22:19-22 and Matt 16:18-19?

    The Captain of the Temple was charged with the keys to the temple. He kept the keys in a rock. In the New Testament Jesus gives Peter, the rock, the keys to the kingdom of heaven.

    Tell me I am wrong. It cant be that easy.

  15. CatholicHack

    BINGO! We have a winner!

    Good job Roy!!! Yep in Is. he’s called the “over the house” however he is described as being the second to the high priest in the Temple. He bore the keys of the temple. Will post video/audio more on this ASAP.

  16. Roy Ornelas

    Thanks Joe Sales.

    Hey Joe, it was difficult, but as soon as you said “office” it clicked. It was interesting to see you connect the building of the Jewish Temple on top of the rock (Mt. Moriah) and contrast that with Christ building his temple on top of Peter the Rock. That was a new insight I had not connected before.
