Good Thursday (Jesus Crucified on Thursday, a very good read)
Ted Montgomery website ^ | Seveal years ago | Ted Montgomery

Posted on 03/28/2013 1:47:41 PM PDT by FoxPro

In ancient Israel, including during the first century A.D., preparations for the Pesach or Passover feast took place on “Preparation Day.” In the middle of the afternoon (that is, at beyn ha’arbayim, often referred to as “twilight”) on that day, the Passover lamb was sacrificed at the temple in Jerusalem. After sunset, when Preparation Day had ended and the Feast of Unleavened Bread had begun, the lamb and other specific foods for the Pesach feast were eaten.

Jesus was crucified and died on Preparation Day. Traditionally, this has been thought to have been on a Friday. I would like to demonstrate that Jesus’ crucifixion and death occurred not on a Friday (the sixth day of the week), as has been traditionally accepted, but rather on the previous day, Thursday (the fifth day of the week).

I enjoyed reading this several years ago on the day before Good Friday. It got me into the "Easter Spirit". Ted is a smart and thoughtful guy. Don't abuse him please.

makes more sense if “On the THIRD DAY” he rose again

When I was in grade school taught by the nuns in the convent they yelled at me for pointing out that if he died on Friday then saturday and sunday was only 2 days

yes I was a wiseacre kid

That works out better for the “on the third day” thing also.

Good Thursday for Jesus Crucification on Thursday is EXACTLY CORRECT.

Friday is NOT 3 full days and 3 full nights, proof from Hebrew Calendar. I have several proof articles of analysis that debunks the false notion of a Friday Crucification - Friday Simply does not work Biblically nor by Hebrew Calendar.

Does that mean the crucifixion took place on Thursday April 2nd, 33 A.D. ?

Actually, in accords to when Passover and the First day of Unleavened Bread occurred in Jerusalem when Jesus was around 33 years old - He most likely was crucified on Wednesday morning and died Wednesday afternoon around 3PM (the ninth hour). He would have been put in the tomb by sunset.

That sunset was an high holy day, a high Sabbath (the 15th of Nissan) and the First day of Unleavened Bread (Leviticus 23) the very night the Hebrews were led out of slavery in Egypt.

The lambs were slaughtered on the afternoon of the 14th - and since Jesus literally became our Passover Lamb - it fits with scripture that He died on Passover itself (the 14th).

That would reckon 3 nights and 3 full days in the tomb.

He arose sometime after sunset on Saturday (the regular Sabbath) and the women came to the tomb on Sunday morning “While it was still dark” (John 20:1) and Jesus was already not in the tomb.

Passover was on a Wednesday April 25th, in 31 A.D, with the First Day of Unleavened Bread on Thursday the 26th and the regular Sabbath that Friday at sunset.

In 33 AD Passover was Saturday April 4th so that would not jive with the scriptures.

In 30 A.D. Passover was on a Friday - however, as others pointed out - you cannot get 3 full nights and 3 days in the heart of the earth by a Friday at sunset burial to Sunday morning resurrection.

I thought He rose again on the third day in fulfillment of the Scriptures. He was crucified on the first day, Friday. He was still dead on the second day, Saturday. He rose from the dead on the 3rd day, Sunday.

SIGH....The Jewish reckoning of time is not the same in the 1st century is not the same as ours is today.Please do not believe anything I am going to tell you with out verifying it. Ask moses.com has some tremendous rabbinical scholars that will verify this.

In the first century the Jewish people understood any part of a day to be "A day and a night." It did not have to be literally 24 hours.

Technically Jesus could have been put in the tomb at 11:59:59 pm on Friday and Risen on Sunday morning at 12:00:01 am and even those this was 24 hours and 2 seconds according to the Jewish reckoning at that time it would have counted as 3 days and 3 nights.

As i said please don't take my word for this go to Ask moses.com find a rabbinical scholar that is an expert on the 1st century and ask him. This is where i got my information from.

Three 24 hour days in the tomb, and full days were calculated from sundown to sundown. Risen the morning after the third day, sounds like Wednesday would be closer.

Any way it is sliced now, the celebration is the thing.

Matthew 12:40 - Jesus’ own words discounts a Friday to Sunday burial to resurrection.

3 DAYS and 3 NIGHTS

“For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.”

You cannot get even parts of 3 days and 3 full nights by the reckoning of tradition.

FWIW-Jewish people call a day- a 24 hour period - started at sunset. Sunset- to Sunset is a day. :)

The Jewish reckoning of time has NEVER changed.

A full day is counted as from sunset to the following sunset.

So there was no ambiguity - Jesus specifically stated ‘ 3 days AND 3 nights’. A 12 hour period of daytime and a 12 hour period of night.

How can anyone witness to Atheists and non-Christians who point to the tradition of a Friday to Sunday burial and resurrection as why the Bible is not to be trusted?

Tradition is what is in error here - NOT scripture.

If we would rather stand by tradition rather than biblical fact and accounting - then we worship a false Messiah by His own words if He died on a Friday and rose on Sunday morning.

People who reject Jesus' own words in Matthew 12:40 “For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.” Also who reject God own words in Lev. 23...

...must also as necessity reject the Word of God regarding 3 DAYS and 3 NIGHTS with myths or anything to uphold their worship of a Friday Crucifixion.

Romans 3:4 let God be true, but every man a liar. Jesus’ own words talk truthfully about a 3 days and 3 nights event; He truthfully discounts the false notion that developed centuries later about a Friday to Sunday burial to resurrection.

Lev. 23 also is specific on the dates and practices of the observance of the Passover.

Maybe I’m not understanding, but seems to me this would mean the apostles and early Church got it wrong for 2k years. To me, that is very hard to believe.
