The True Day of  Resurrection

These last few days from Jesus' crucifixion to His resurrection is the true biblical account of what happened.

The scriptural account proves that He was resurrected from the dead on Saturday, the seventh day Sabbath. There is no biblical basis for a Sunday resurrection.
still speaking, Judas, one of the twelve, with a great multitude with swords and clubs, came and they laid their hands on Him and took Him (Mark 14:37- 46).

WEDNESDAY, the 14th day of Nisan: This day was the Passover day. It was the Preparation Day (John 19:31) for the High Sabbath, The Feast of Unleavened Bread, that would begin at sundown Yeshua was arrested and examined by the Sanhedrin early in the morning, probably about midnight “The chief priests and all the council sought testimony against Yeshua to put Him to death and found none” (Mark 14:53-65). This questioning occurred through Tuesday night until Wednesday morning.  And  "In the morning the chief priests held a consultation with the elders and scribes and the whole council and they bound Yeshua, led Him away, and delivered Him to Pilate (probably about 6 00 a m, immediately in the morning’)” (Mark 15:1).  Now because it was the Feast of the Passover, the custom was to release one prisoner (Mark 15 6), and the multitude cried out for the release of Barabbas instead (Mark 15:15). Pilate released Barabbas, but said to the multitude, “why should I release Barabbas, what has this man (Yeshua) done9” He said in Luke 23 4, “I find no fault in Him”.

Mark 15:25 tells us that “it was the third hour (9:00 am) and they crucified Him “ This was exactly at the same time of day that the Jews were preparing their sacrificial lamb In verses 33 through 37 of Mark 15, we see that at 12:00 noon, “the sixth hour” that the whole land became dark and remained dark until the ninth hour, or 3 00 pm , when Yeshua died. He died and His blood was shed at exactly the same moment when Jews all over Jerusalem were praising God and slaying their Passover lambs!

The Passover was a time of great joy and praise in adoration and worship to God for providing them a way of time of great joy and praise in adoration and worship to God for providing them a way of redemption or atonement.  At 3:00 PM, when the lambs were being slain, the Levites were leading the people in songs of praise from the Psalms. Their focus would be on Psalm 113-118.  The people would sing the first line of the Psalm, and the Levites would respond by singing the second line) then the people would respond by singing Hallelujah, or Praise the Lord.  Psalm 118:24 was a favorite Psalm to be sung, “This is the day that the Lord hath made we will rejoice and be glad in it.“  This song was a praise to God for the day of the Passover redemption that He had made for them.  What an astounding thought!  His chosen people were singing thanks and praises to Him for the method of redemption that He had determined at the very moment that the redemptive blood of Yeshua was being shed!

In Exodus 12:10 we see that there was not to be any evidence of the death of the Passover lamb left over until the morning “And you ) shall not leave any of it over until morning.”  God had specifically instructed them to consume the whole lamb, and not to leave any of it until morning.  This was also the condition with Yeshua, the Passover Lamb.  They hurried the burial in Joseph’s tomb, for it “was a preparation day and a Sabbath was approaching,” Luke 23:53.  They, not knowing that they were carrying out God’s plan, rushed about, getting Him off of the crucifixion tree.  They prepared His body, and carried Him to the tomb . . . all before the dawn of Thursday.... remember, we are dealing with a Hebrew day, and that the dawn of Thursday would have been at sundown Wednesday evening.  They had to get Him into the tomb so that no evidence of the Passover lamb was remaining (a fulfillment of Exodus 12:10) before sundown on Wednesday.  This is proven in John 19:31, “The Jews therefore, because it was the day of Preparation, so that the bodies should not remain on the cross on the Sabbath, for that Sabbath (the Sabbath of the Feast of Unleavened Bread that began at sundown Thursday - see Leviticus 23 2 6) was a high day."  Again, all of these exact requirements of the Law were fulfilled in Him, in order to prove that He in fact was the Messiah!  He was the sacrificial lamb, and was not left on the cross into the next day (or into sundown of Wednesday), but gave it all, finished the work, completed His offering of Himself, and was placed in the tomb before the dawning of the high Sabbath!

Now, while this thought is fresh in our minds, let’s review His own prophecy of His death. He said in Luke 11:30 that He would be in the belly of the earth exactly as Jonah was in the belly of the fish....exactly three days and three nights!  If Yeshua was placed in the tomb before sundown or 6:00 on Wednesday night, the only way you can get exactly three days and three nights in the tomb is if he was resurrected before sundown or 6:00p.m. on Saturday, the Sabbath.  If Yeshua departed from the grave at any other time of day, He could not have been three days and three nights in the grave.  If He rose at any other time of day, He failed to prove to that evil generation by the only sign He gave, that He was the true Messiah.  Either He rose in the evening, when the day was ending, or else He is not the Messiah.  He staked His claim on that one and only sign!

Biblical evidence proves the fact that Yeshua was crucified and placed in the tomb on Wednesday.  He was placed in the tomb on Wednesday afternoon, and if He was resurrected on Sunday morning, he would have been in the tomb for three days and four nights.  If He was placed in the tomb on Friday night and resurrected Sunday morning as the Christian Easter tradition declares, He would have been in the grave two nights and one full day.  This would have made Him a fraud, based on His own word!  The only scenario that works is the Wednesday crucifixion and the Saturday resurrection!  This is all based on the evidence and the chronological proof that is seen in the Scriptures of His walk during this last week.

THURSDAY, the 15th day of Nisan: The first night in the tomb.  Remember, these “days and nights” must be counted Hebraically.  This first night was what we on the Gregorian calendar would recognize as Wednesday night, and the first day would be Thursday until sundown (Hebraically).  It also was called the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the “high Sabbath.” This feast represents and shows freedom from the Egyptian house of bondage.  It also pictures the redemption and freedom, which is shown by Yeshua, being three days and three nights in the grave, defeating death, hell, and the grave!  It pictures the redemption from the bondage of these things.  The chief priest and pharisees ask Pilate to seal the tomb and place guards around it (Matt 27:62-66).

FRIDAY, the 16th day of Nisan:  The second night in the tomb (Thursday night and Friday day).  It was also, the second day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread.  Because of the approaching Sabbath of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, Yeshua was hurriedly placed in the tomb, before dark on Wednesday.  Because of this, He was not anointed in a proper manner with spices and ointments.  In Luke 23: 54 - 56 we see that Miriam (Mary) of Magdala, and Miriam the mother of Yosef (Mary, the mother of Joseph) came on Friday day and “observed the tomb and saw how His body was laid.”  They then returned and “prepared spices and fragrant oils,” that they might prepare His body properly for burial. These spices were prepared on Friday, and the plan was to go to the tomb on Sunday, after the regular seventh day Sabbath (realizing again that such "work" was forbidden on the Sabbath), and anoint His body.

SATURDAY, the 17th day of Nisan: The third night in the tomb (Friday night and Saturday day).  It was also, the third day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread.  This was also the Erev Shabbot (the eve or dawning of Sabbath), or the beginning of the weekly seventh day Sabbath.  On the Sabbath, the disciples rested in obedience to the commandment of the Sabbath rest.  On the first day of the week, Sunday, early in the morning, Miriam of Magdala and Miriam the mother of Yosef went to the tomb to properly anoint His body with oil and spices.  When they arrived, they found the stone rolled away, and discovered that the body of the Lord, Yeshua, was gone already.  He had come forth from the tomb on the third day, toward the end of the seventh day Sabbath, exactly 72 hours after he was buried!

SUNDAY, the 18th day of Nisan: It was also, the fourth day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread.  On this, the first day of the week, the resurrection is revealed and proclaimed “Now after the Sabbaths (the Greek original plural which is retained) towards the dawn of the day following the Sabbaths, Mary - the Magdalene - and the other Mary came to examine the tomb,” (Matt 28:1).  When they arrive, they find the tomb empty.  Miriam quickly goes to tell the apostles.  They come to see the empty tomb and leave.  Mary returns to the tomb and sees the Lord and runs to tell the apostles that He is risen.  The other women arrive to anoint the body of Yeshua, and see and hear angles in the empty tomb. They leave and meet the Lord on the way.  Late in that day, the Lord Yeshua  appears to His disciples on the walk to Emmaus (and thus completes the 8th day, a representation of the new week, which will prophetically be initiated by God bringing forth the New Jerusalem following the 1,000 year Millenium).

These last few days are the true biblical account of what happened. This scriptural evidence proves that He was resurrected from the dead on Saturday, the seventh day Sabbath. There is no biblical basis for a Sunday resurrection.


Prophecies About the 1st Advent of Jesus Christ

The discovery of the Dead Sea Old Testament Scrolls and the determination that they were written prior to the first advent of Jesus Christ gives absolute proof to the existence and reality of Jesus Christ having come to earth during His first advent Old Testament prophecies regarding the birth and death of Jesus are incredibly specific and cannot relate to any other advent of Christ than when He was born almost 2,000 years ago, based on the Julian/Gregorian calendar. Both Old Testament prophecy and New Testament fuffillment are compared.   Please be aware that this is not the full list of all prophetic New Testament scriptures attesting to Jesus.

Chronology of  Jesus' Crucifixion

One of the oldest and continuous celebrated Holy Days in human history is the Passover.  This Feast of the Lord has special meaning for most Jewish people as well as believers and nominal Christians.  To understand the full significance of Yeshua's death and resurrection one must understand the events of His final Passover week.  The following article taken from “Israel Today “gives a reasonable explanation of these events and their significance.  A chronology of the last week of Jesus time in Jerusalem and in preparation for the Passover that harmonizes the Scriptural evidence into an easily readable progression prepared by “Israel Today” gives a reasonable explanation of these events and their significance :

FRIDAY, the 9th day of Nisan:  Six days before Passover Yeshua comes to Bethany, on the Mount of Olives John 12: 1-3 There, a supper is prepared for Him while Mary anointed His feet with costly oil and wiped them with her hair.

SATURDAY, the 10th day of Nisan: ‘On the next day He made His triumphal entry into Jerusalem from Bethany. This was a ”Sabbath’s day journey” (Acts 1:12). This also became a fulfillment of a prophecy concerning the Messiah in Zechariah 9:9, “Fear not, daughter of Zion, Behold your King is coming sitting on a donkey's colt“.  This was, in part a fulfillment of Exodus 12: 3- 5, where the children of Israel were to select their Passover lamb and examine it for five days.  They were told that “your lamb shall be without blemish.”  Yeshua was examined from this day that He entered Jerusalem for five days before He was crucified.  He was observed, questioned (Matthew 21: 23-27), and tested and found without blemish. Pilate said of Him in Luke 23: 4, “I find no fault in Him”.  In the evening of this day He returns to Bethany (Mark 11:11).

SUNDAY, the 11th day of Nisan: He again comes out of Bethany where He speaks to the fig tree and cleanses the Temple of the money-changers (Mark 11:12-16).  The Greeks come to Him (John 12:20-32).  He returns to Bethany (Mark 11:19).

MONDAY, the 12th day of Nisan:  He and the disciples return to Jerusalem (Mark: 11: 20-27) He speaks the Parable of the Vinedressers to the priests and Pharisees (Mark 12 and Matthew 21).  This parable inflamed them and they sought to lay hands on Him and take Him but they feared the people Matthew 21:46) so they conspired with Judas Iscariot as to how he might betray Him (Luke 2: 1-6).  A very key passage is found in Matt. 26: 1-5 as it helps us to properly identify the day, Monday and the date, the 12th of Nisan. “He said to His disciples, ‘you know that after two days is the Passover, and the Son of Man will be delivered up to be crucified.' “ He said this on Monday, and two days later, Wednesday was the Passover and He. was crucified. Upon His return to Bethany, Yeshua gives a prophetic discourse, primarily dealing with the last days, on the Mount of Olives (Mattityahu 24:3-51).

TUESDAY, the 13th day of Nisan He ate the Lord's Supper on this day with His disciples, after 6:00 pm (which was a new day in Jewish time), and was the first day of Passover (Mark 14:12-17). After supper, they sang a hymn, and went over to the Mount of Olives to pray in the Garden of Gethsemane.  It was obviously a very late hour, because none of the disciples were able to stay awake (Mark 14:37). He spoke there to Peter (Kefa in Hebrew) about being asleep, and then, “while He was

New Testament Fulfillment

Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows.  When His mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found to be with child by the Holy Spirit.  And Joseph her husband, being a righteous man, and not wanting to disgrace here, desired to put her away secretly.  but when he had considered this, behold, and angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, 'Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife, for that which has been conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit.  And she will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for it is He who will save His people from their sins.

Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, magi (caste of wise men) from the east arrived in Jerusalem, saying, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews?

And this clearer still, if another priest arises according to the likeness of Melchizedek, who has become such not on the basis of law of physical requirement, but according to the power of an indestructible life. For it is witnessed of Him (Jesus), “Thou art a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.”
               Hebrews 7: 15-17


...but He, having offered one sacrifice for all sins for all time, sat down at the right hand of God, waiting from that time onward until His enemies be made a footstool for His feet.                     Hebrews. 10: 12, 13





Then he (Ponchus Pilate) released Barabbas for them (the multitudes); but after having Jesus scourged, he delivered Him to be crucified.  And they (the soldiers) stripped Him, and put a scarlet robe around Him.  And after weaving a crown of thorns, they put it on His head, and a reed in His right hand; and they. kneeled down before Him and mocked Him, saying, “Hail, King of the Jews!”  And they spat on Him, and took the reed and began to beat Him on the head. And after they had mocked Him, they took His robe off and put His garments on Him, and led Him away to crucify Him.  And they put up about His head the charge against Him which read, “This is Jesus the King of the Jews.” At that time two robbers were crucified with Him, one on the right and one on the left.                                  Matthew 27: 26-38


And in the same way He took the cup after they had eaten, saying “This cup which is poured out for you is the new covenant in My blood.         Luke 22: 20

The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because the Lord has anointed Me to bring the good news to the afflicted; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to captives and freedom to prisoners; to proclaim the favorable year of the Lord.                               Isaiah 61:1,2


He was despised and forsaken of men, a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief; and like one from whom men hide their face. Surely our griefs He Himself bore, and our sorrows He carried; yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But He was pierced through our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the chastening for well being fell upon Him, and by His scourging we are healed.  Yet He did not open His mouth; like a lamb led to slaughter, and like a sheep that is silent before its shears, so He did not open Ills mouth. Because He poured out Himself to death, and was numbered with the tmnsgressors yet He Himself bore the sin of many, and interceded for the transgressors.
