                                                     MATTHEW 12:40

For as Jonas was 3 DAYS and 3 NIGHTS in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be 3 DAYS and 3 NIGHTS in the heart of the earth




To prove this chronology (I Thessalonians 5:21), observe:

  1. Matthew 12:40
  2. Matthew 27:57-61
  3. Matthew 12:40 (Gone before)
  4. Mark 15:42-47 (Sunrise on)
  5. Luke 23:50-56 (Sunday!)
  6. John 19:38-42
  7. John 20:1


Friday 9 Nisan

Before sunset Jesus comes to Bethany: It is 6 days before Passover.  John 12:1

Saturday 10 Nisan

By gentile reckoning it is Friday evening: just after sunset.  Jesus is anointed for the first time. The Passover lamb is set aside.

John 12:2-9; Exodus 12:3

Sunday 11 Nisan

Jesus’ Triumphal entry into Jerusalem.  John 12:12-19; Mark 11:1-11; Matthew 21:1-11; Luke 19:28-40

Monday 12 Nisan

Jesus curses fig tree. Mark 11:12-19; Matthew 21:17-22 (covers Nisan 12th and 13th)

Tuesday 13 Nisan

Fig tree withered; Second anointing; Last supper (last supper by Jewish reckoning is already Wednesday, the day of preparation because it’s after sunset) Mark 11:20; Mark 14:1-9; Matthew 26:1-13; Mark 14:10-25; Matthew 26:14-29

Luke 22:1-23; John 13:1-4

Wednesday 14 Nisan

Day of preparation

Jesus Christ condemned 6 am – 9 am

Jesus Christ crucified 9 am – 3 pm

Jesus Christ removed from the cross just before 6 pm (sunset) and placed in tomb.

Mark 15:1-47; Luke 22:66-23:56; John 18:27-19:42; Matthew 26:57-27:61; Exodus 12:6; I Corinthians 5:7-8

Thursday 15 Nisan

Beginning at sunset Wednesday night, the first day of unleavened bread, Jesus Christ is in the tomb.



  1. Feast of unleavened bread is called the Passover, Luke 22:1
  2. Each feast begins with a “holy convocation”, or “Sabbath”, or “high day”, which is not to be confused with the normal weekly Sabbath which is Saturday.

Exodus 12:16

Leviticus 23:7

John 19:31 was not Saturday, but the first day of the feast!

Thursday, 15 Nisan Matthew 27:62-66


Friday 16 Nisan

Jesus in tomb

Saturday 17 Nisan

Weekly Sabbath of rest, Jesus Christ is in the tomb until at least 6 pm (which is sunset).

Sunday 18 Nisan

  1. First day of the week beginning by Jewish reckoning at sunset {6 pm} Saturday.
  2. Resurrection occurs between 6 pm Saturday evening and 6 am Sunday morning.
  3. Most likely, resurrection occurred shortly after 6 pm Saturday night on the Gentile Time-Clock, or the very beginning of the first day of the Week (Sunday), on the Jewish Time-Clock [see chart]

Matthew 28

Mark 16

Luke 24

John 20 (particularly John 20:1)



Contrast these 4 accounts VERY CAREFULLY: There are two trips made to the tomb by Mary Magdelene. According to John 20:1, “It was yet dark”, and notice that the tomb is ALREADY empty!

Good Friday is a hoax! There is no possible way to reconcile “3 days AND 3 nights in the heart of the earth” (Matthew 12:40) with a Friday crucifixion as illustrated above!

Remember that according to the Jews calendar, by the way, “the first day of the week” {Sunday} begins at sunset Saturday evening, so Jesus could rise anytime from sunset Saturday on, which would be the “first day of the week.”
