The Greeks came to honour Jesus just a few days before he was crucified, and this reminds us that the wise men came from the East to see Jesus just a few days after he was born.

The New Testament does not tell us if these were Greek Jews, or Greek nationals.

But it is unlikely that Greeks who were not Jews would have travelled to Jerusalem to witness a Jewish feast in which they could not partake:
'No foreigner is to eat of it'. Exodus chapter 12 v 43

Jews lived all over the Roman Empire, but many returned to Jerusalem for the celebration of Passover every year.

In that particular year Jesus Christ became the 'Passover Lamb of God' to as many as heard the Gospel and believed.

Jews from across the Roman Empire were instrumental in spreading the Gospel message to the Gentiles.

In the passage you quoted Jesus spoke of his death as the beginning of the Gospel Kingdom, not just for Jews but for all mankind.

Many had come to Jerusalem to celebrate the Exodus from Egypt, but then believed in God's plan of salvation for the whole world through Christ the Redeemer.

Having studied the geometric design of the Queen's Chamber in great detail, I came to the conclusion that it represented the Egyptian calendar, which was based on 309 lunar months in 25 calendar years of 365 days.

It is recorded that Moses learned all the wisdom of the Egyptians, so he may have used this knowledge to assist his calculation of the date of Passover, in line with the seven day week of Genesis.

Long after Moses, Hezekiah became King of Judah, and his seal has been found by archaeologists. There is an Ankh on the seal, which appears like a cross. Hezekiah ordered a reformation in line with the Law of Moses including the celebration of Passover.

There are connections between Egypt and the Jews many hundreds of years before Christ, as borne out by archaeological discoveries. The Ankh was, of course, the Egyptian symbol of life.

Egypt is mentioned hundreds of times in the Old Testament, but Greece is only mentioned four times, as far as I know.

In Christianity, Jesus Christ opened up the way to eternal life through his death on the cross, having been called out of Egypt as an infant.

Many generations have had a chance to reflect on the history of the ancient world. Is it likely that you alone have discovered the truth?

Alternative numerology may allow you to manipulate facts in line with your ideas, but I doubt that your figures will convince those who are numerate, and those who are not numerate have little or no interest in codes.

Connecting things with no real connection inevitably leaves one in an imaginary world far from the truth.

Plain language, not numerology
