Update on Restoration Study Bible
The Bibles have been shipped and are scheduled to arrive in Missouri next week. Starting Monday, 2/18, orders can be made by phone at (573) 896-1000 during normal office hours, Monday through Friday, 8:00 am – 4:00 pm using VISA or Master Card. Because we do not yet have the Bibles, determining costs of sending three or more Bibles will be done once we are able to confirm weights and acquire the appropriate shipping material. At present we have a two-Bible limit by priority mail. The domestic order donation cost is:
|1 Bible||2 Bibles|
|Shipping & Handling||$10.95||$17.35|
This new edition offers many improvements, which include doubling the number of charts and adding 1,000 more study notes, chapter headings throughout, and Strong’s Hebrew and Greek dictionaries. Inquiries from Bible students about its availability have been numerous. For more information, please visit www.restorationstudybible.com.
Media Consultant Visits Holts Summit
This week YRM staff met with Jared Wilkins, our media consultant. Along with reviewing the current response from our Discover the Truth program, we discussed the Ministry’s future vision. He also shared several opportunities for future growth. At no time in our history have we seen the number of inquiries that we are receiving through this exciting outlet. This past week alone we logged 800 responses. Interested people are hearing and receiving the Truth like never before. We are excited and humbled at the current response and give all praise to Almighty Yahweh for allowing this extraordinary effort to occur!

Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread
We pray that you are making plans to observe Yahweh’s Passover and Feast of Unleavened Bread. This year we will be scheduling a greater number of activities, including several Bible studies. With only a few weeks remaining, there is no time for delay. Make preparations now to join YRM at Holts Summit for these important observances! We are projecting this year’s Passover Memorial the evening of March 25 and the Feast of Unleavened Bread from March 27 – April 2 (dates contingent on verification of Abib barley and new moon). This year will be one of the earliest if the barley is confirmed. For additional information on the Passover and Feast of Unleavened Bread, visit yrm.org/FUB2013
TEST YOUR TUTELAGE
What day of the week was Yahshua the Messiah impaled?
Yahshua was impaled on a Wednesday and He was resurrected late on the Sabbath. The Restoration Study Bible explains, “As Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the fish, Yahshua confirms that He would be three days and three nights in the earth. Three days and three nights equates to seventy-two hours. This would make the traditional time in the tomb, from Friday night through Sunday morning, impossible. Yahshua died on Wednesday afternoon and was raised late on the seventh-day Sabbath. The Dake’s Annotated Reference Bible states, “He was put to the grave Wednesday just before sunset and was resurrected at the end of Saturday at sunset. Good Friday should be changed to Good Wednesday. No statement says that he was buried Friday at sunset. This would make him in the grave only one day and one night, proving his own words untrue.” See note on Luke 23:56. Further, three days and nights cannot refer to any time He spent on the torture stake. Heart of the earth- Jonah 2:3 reads that Jonah was in the midst of the sea, where midst means, “in the heart of or enclosed within” (Heb. labab), just as Yahshua was entombed within the earth for three full days and nights.,” note on Matthew 12:40. Answer: B.
