Que. The fact that Nisan 10 was also the anniversary of when the Passover lamb was selected for Passover sacrifice, does that have any bearing on this? Also, Nisan 10 is the anniversary of the "triumphal entry" of Jesus into Jerusalem as 'king' a few days before His death on Passover. How does all this play into things?
Ans. Jesus is the new Joshua that leads His people into the Promised land as both Priest and King thereby again combining the two aspects of the meaning of these two dates. For we have the covenant of blood led by the priests and the entry into the promised land led by the captain and king of the covenant. Jesus fulfills both aspects. Jesus is the One to whom they cried on the day that they were selecting the lamb for Passover, "Hosanna to the Son of David! --- Blessed is the King of Israel!" (Matt. 21:15; John 12:12-13.) And this, as said, was also on the anniversary of Joshua's triumphal crossing of the Jordan to possess the land.
Eze 37:22 and I will make them one nation in the land, upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all; and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all;
Eze 37:23 neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions; but I will save them out of all their dwelling-places, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God.
Eze 37:24 And my servant David shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in mine ordinances, and observe my statutes, and do them.
Eze 37:25 And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, they, and their children, and their children's children, for ever: and David my servant shall be their prince for ever.
Eze 37:26 Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them; and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore.
Que. What does Pentecost mean?
Ans. It was one of the three mandatory feasts held every year. Pentecost means '50', and it occurred 50 days after the first barley harvest. Pentecost celebrated the ingathering of the wheat harvest. Pentecost is symbolic of the harvest of souls into God's kingdom, but we cannot go into detail about that now. But do remember that it was on Pentecost that God poured out His Spirit and the Church was born and that a harvest of 3000 souls were saved that day and baptized in water, (Acts 2:41). Again this answers to Nisan 10 when Israel crossed the Jordan and they too were all baptized in the Jordan, and this supplies us with yet another thematic connection between the dates of Nisan 10 and Pentecost! For on both those dates a people were baptized in the Jordan into a new kingdom. The main difference being that on Pentecost AD 30, they were baptized in the Holy Spirit first, which event marks the circumcision of the heart and tongue by the fire of God, rather than the circumcision of the flesh by the knife of a man.

Why Israel a Nation in 1948?
Abraham was born 1948 years after Adam,
and Israel was born as a nation in AD 1948. Is this a coincidence?
