If Passover started in Jerusalem on Monday, when would Jesus be alive again as a marker this year?
Today or tomorrow? What time?April 12, 2017 at 8:54 am #130518
He died on the cross at 3PM on a Thursday. They had to hurry up and bury Him, because the first day of Unleavened Bread was to start at 6PM, and the first day of that feast was a Sabbath. No work was supposed to be done, including burying people. That Sabbath was immediately followed by another Sabbath, which was the Sabbath Day (Saturday). He rose on Sunday.
Jesus didn’t need to spend 3 full days and nights in the heart of the earth. The Jews consider all of a day counted even if only part of it was included.
Died at 3PM Thursday
Buried between 3-6 PM on Thursday “day” (Day 1)
Buried Friday “evening” (Night 1)
Buried Friday “day” (Day 2)
Buried Saturday “evening” (Night 2)
Buried Saturday “day” (Day 3)
Buried Sunday “evening” (Night 3)
And He rose before dawn on Sunday morning.
If Monday was Passover, instead of a Thursday, like shown above, just subtract that same amount of time from Sunday. He would rise on a Thursday, in that case, also before dawn (morning hours).Romans1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. 17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
