Khirbet Shimon

 

Pronunciation:  KHIR-bet + SHIH-muhn

Occurrences:  1

First Reference:  Yeshua 21:28

 

Now when Yeshua had passed through the town of Khirbet Shimon, he saw by the way a man which was crucified; being bound to the cross by ropes strong and fresh.

 

 

See:  Rufinius

 

Summary:  Yeshua and his disciples came upon a crucified man in the town of Khirbet Shimon while traveling from Caesarea Philippi to the city of Tyre. Seeing that the man was still alive, Yeshua directed his disciples to release him. One of his disciples protested, stating that the man had been convicted of thievery and freeing him would be punishable by crucifixion also. Asking the disciple for his sword (which the disciple had thought to hide from Yeshua), Yeshua cut the ropes and released the man himself. The man became a faithful follower of Yeshua from that day forth (Y:21:34). According to Azrael’s Commentary, the disciple who warned Yeshua about freeing the thief and whose sword Yeshua used, was Rufinius.

 

 

Azrael’s Commentary - Rufinius

 

[...] Rufinius became a devoted follower of Yeshua after the healing of his servant, Albion. After the incident recorded in Yeshua 17:21-35, Rufinius resigned his commission and followed Yeshua from that day forth. It was Rufinius’ intent to protect Yeshua whether Yeshua thought he needed protecting or not. Rufinius presented a rather intimidating presence. Abandoning his customary dress, Rufinius began to wear the robes of a Jewish merchant; being careful to keep his short sword hidden beneath his robes so that Yeshua would not see it. However, it was evident that Yeshua did know. If you will read Yeshua 21:28-33, the disciple who warned Yeshua against releasing the crucified man was none other than Rufinius. [...]
