The Excommunication of Jesus &Followers Compared with Stone Cut Out (Excommunicated) of the Mountains without Hands (Daniel, Chapter 2, Dan 2:34)
"And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself; . . . (King James Bible, Daniel 9:26) After the sixty-two sevens, the Anointed One will be cut off and will have nothing. (New International Bible, Daniel 9:25) . . . seven of those seventy will pass till the appearance of one anointed, a prince; then for sixty-two it will remain restored, rebuilt with streets and conduits. At the critical time, after sixty-prince will be removed, and no one will take his part. the sixty two have passed, the anointed (Oxford Study Bible, Daniel 9:25, p. 926) Some Bibles actually translate the original Greek words into the English word "excommunication" pertaining to Jesus and His disciples. Most of the people lived in fear of the Pharisees, knowing that they, too, might be "cast out" or excommunicated from the church. Jesus was already a marked man when He was born in the meridian of time. Many innocent children were murdered in Herod's effort to kill Him. Not only was He persecuted, smitten and tried by the law of the gentiles, He was also rejected "of His own." These were times that tried men's souls, and it was also a trial of the fullness of the Holy Priesthood.But knowing well the verses in the Old Testament and teaching higher principles did not fare well with others who became envious and jealous of this teacher. They cared less for Him when He chastised them for quoting but not living the commandments and laws of the Priesthood. They finally turned against Him when He was teaching in one of the synagogues. The story is recorded in (Luke 4:16-21; 28-29).
