THE CHRONOLOGY OF THE CRUCIFIXION AND RESURRECTION

THE CHRONOLOGY OF THE CRUCIFIXION AND RESURRECTION

TUESDAY
Jesus Christ ate an evening Passover meal with his disciples and instituted the New Covenant symbols (Matthew 26:26-28.) Jesus was then betrayed by Judas, arrested and during the night brought before the high priest.

WEDNESDAY
Jesus Christ died around 3 p. m. (Mathew 27:46-50). This was the preparation day for the annual, not weekly, Sabbath, which begun at sunset (Mark 15:42; Luke 23:54; JOHN 2(:31). Jesus’ body was placed in the tomb just before sunset (Matthew 27:57-60).

THURSDAY
Sunset Wednesday to sunset Thursday was the high-day Sabbath, the first day of the feast of Unleaven Bread (John 19:31; Leviticus23:4-7). Thursday just before sunset marked the first full night and day Jesus was in the tomb.

FRIDAY
The high-day Sabbath now past as of sunset Thursday, the women bought and prepared spices for anointing Jesus’ body before resting on the weekly Sabbath day, which began at Friday sunset (Mark 16:1; Luke 23:56). Friday just  before sunset marked the second full night and day Jesus was in the tomb.

SATURDAY
The women rested on the weekly Sabbath, according to the fourth commandment (Luke 23:56; Exodus 20:8-11). Jesus rose near sunset, exactly three nights after His burial, fulfilling the sign of Jonah and authenticating the sign He gave of His messiahship.

SUNDAY
The women brought the spices early in the morning while it was still dark (Luke 24:1; JOHN 21:1), finding that Jesus had already risen (Matthew 28:1-6; Mark 16:2-6; Luke 24:2-3; John 20:1).

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
