PASSION WEEK Friday: Was Christ crucified on Friday or Thursday?
Posted by Библията Тв in Facebook's Pentecostal Theology Group View the Original Post

PASSION WEEK: Friday This day is known as “Good Friday” because on this day Jesus was crucified for the sins of the world. His trial, death, and burial all took place on this day. (Matthew 27:26) Jesus spoke His seven last words from the cross.

“Christ was dead for three full days and for three full nights. He was put in the grave Wednesday just before sunset and was resurrected at the end of Saturday at sunset. Good Friday should be changed to Good Wednesday. No statement says that He was buried Friday at sunset. This would make Him in the grave only one day and one night, proving His own words untrue (Mt. 12:40). The sabbath of Jn. 19:31 was not the regular weekly one, but the special sabbath of the feast.” Matthew 12:40 Note. See note, Jn. 19:31; note, Lk. 9:22.

    The darkest day in history was when Almighty God laid on His Son the sins of all mankind. And Jesus Christ, who knew no sin, carried our sins to the cross, suffered, and died. He paid the “wages of sin”—death. Even though it was midday, the world went totally dark for three hours as the Savior surrendered His life and died. He did it all so that those who trust in Him wouldn’t have to live in the darkness, bondage, and death sentence of sin. When He said, “It is finished” (John 19:30), it was really just the beginning…
    The brightest day in history was coming—in just three days.

    It doesn’t bother me. If it’s Easter, it’s Easter, whether someone celebrates it in April or May, it doesn’t bother me. It’s like Thanksgiving – most Slavics celebrate it on different days, so that they can visit each other’s churches. I do wish that they’d celebrate it on Thanksgiving Day if they’re living in the U.S.

    Matthew 12:40. snip
    a [as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly] This indicates that Jonah was dead for three days and was resurrected as a true type of Christ. If this is not the case, then he could not be a true sign of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Nothing is said about Jonah being preserved alive in the whale’s belly. It would be just as easy to believe one as the other. See notes, Jonah 2.
    b [three days and three nights] Christ was dead for three full days and for three full nights. He was put in the grave Wednesday just before sunset and was resurrected at the end of Saturday at sunset. Good Friday should be changed to Good Wednesday. No statement says that He was buried Friday at sunset. This would make Him in the grave only one day and one night, proving His own words untrue (Mt. 12:40).

    Why do you guys do this? I’m 70 and I’ve grown up being taught the “Good Friday” Crucifixion. Now you’re telling us it was on Wednesday. When you do this, even if it could be true, you create confusion about what credentialed ministers taught us for so long. Then you argue back and forth, creating even more confusion! The truth on which we need to focus is that our Saviour was Crucified, died and was resurected!! I try to follow your logic, but it’s rarely that clear and certainly NOT thorough. At best you get our attention, but the result is usually confusion and even doubt in doctrine that has formally been settled in our hearts!!!

      Secular history, such as the encyclopedia Britannica can trace back through history and will show that the Roman Catholics and Constantine did a lot changing and teaching to help it coincide with a pagan holiday. Easter eggs and Easter Bunnies are not mention in the Bible, but they are included in Easter ceremonies. Easter name itself came from a sex goddess name ISHTAR. How can sacred nize a pagan practice? How can we continue in celebrating these things and call our selves Christians, when we are shown what happen and what is the light? This is not legalism. When the Jews would make an altar to a false god, they would not sacred nize it to the Jewish religion when they returned to God. They tore down the altars. Today we would have sacred nize them. I do believe that Jesus Christ was crucified and was in the tomb 3 nights and days. As for myself I will not say Easter Sunday no more or participate in pagan practices. I will celebrate RESURRECTION SUNDAY. I will not condemn you if you continue on as before. That is up to God and you. But wouldn’t it be awful at the JUDGEMENT SEAT that Jesus said you worshipped not me correctly in honor of my resurrection; DEPART FROM ME.

      I remember studying it one day and realizing, after all these years of celebrating Good Friday that Friday afternoon to early Sunday morning wasn’t 3 days! I was kinda shocked! So I began to look into how others had tried to explain it, and nothing I found really sat right with me. Then as I started digging deeper, the High Sabbath concept surfaced and that’s when things started to line up with the gospel accounts and the word of Christ almost seamlessly.

      So yes, makes the most sense to me.

    It was a High Sabbath, not the weekly Sabbath:

    John 19:31 (NKJV)

    Therefore, because it was the Preparation Day, that the bodies should not remain on the cross on the Sabbath (for that Sabbath was a high day), the Jews asked Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away.

    Leviticus 23:4-8 (NKJV)

    “These are the feasts of the Lord, holy convocations which you shall proclaim at their appointed times. On the fourteenth day of the first month at twilight is the Lord’s Passover. And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the Feast of Unleavened Bread to the Lord; seven days you must eat unleavened bread. On the first day you shall have a holy convocation; you shall do no customary work on it. But you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord for seven days. The seventh day shall be a holy convocation; you shall do no customary work on it.’ ”

    The Sun that God created controls the day of Easter.

    The annual Christian festival in commemoration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ is observed on the first Sunday, after the first full moon, after the vernal equinox, on the Gregorian calendar.

    The Vernal (spring) Equinox is when the day and night becomes the same.

    The autumnal (fall) equinox is in the fall. When the day and night becomes the same.
    We find no problem among our early church father about what day Christmas falls on.

    1. No one knows the real birthday of Jesus! The Bible gives us no date, so why do we celebrate it on the 25th December?

    In 336 A.D., was the first recorded date of Christmas being celebrated on December 25th. This was under the leadership of the Roman Emperor Constantine (he was the first Christian Roman Emperor). A few years later, Pope Julius I officially declared that the birth of Jesus would be celebrated on December 25.

    Many suggested the reason for this date being chosen, was,

    According to tradition, Mary was told she would conceive a child, that was on March 25, nine months later would be December 25. Many other reasons exist but nothing is for sure.

    The change from Worship on Saturday to Sunday worship officially started in 150 A.D. And in the 5th century it became law.
    However we find references in the New Testament that seem to relate their rest day (Sabbath) being on Sunday instead of Saturday.

    One reason why the church came to together on the first day of the week as their day of rest and worship is that the Lord of the Sabbath rose from the dead on the first day of the week (John 20:1).

    The work of the first creation was finished on the seventh day of the week, the work of the new creation in Christ, 1 Corinthians 5:17, was finished on the first day of the week by the resurrection of Jesus. From the very earliest days of the church they set aside the first day of the week as their usual day of rest and worship.

    Until His Resurrection, Jesus Christ and His disciples honored the seventh day as the Sabbath. After His Resurrection, Sunday was held sacred as the Lord’s day in remembrance of His Resurrection on that day (see Acts 20:7; 1 Corinthians 16:2). From that time on, His followers observed the first day of the week as their Sabbath. In both cases there were six days of labor and one for rest and devotion.

    Now we look at the problems in the early church that comes from out side the church.

    Problems in the early church without:

    The early church was fighting a battle on two fronts.

    Fighting to preserve its existence. The Roman state was out to abolish it.

    They were fighting to preserve pure doctrine.

    Legalistic Heresies developed in the early church.
    Circumcision or not to Circumcise. This even spread over in to some modern churches.

    In some cities, even countries today have outlawed circumcision.
    Some held to Gen. 17:14 “If not circumcised they would be cut of from Israel.” {Interesting information on circumcision, “If circumcision is a sign of the Jewish covenant, why is it hid from public view?” For the answer and more information view my post on 1/31/2014}.

    Where to sit in church became another problem? Women had to sit in the rear of the church or on the opposite side of men, some churches still hold to this.

    Women and hair covering some held that women could not enter the church with out her head being covered, yet others it made no difference.

    In some parts of our world this is still a problem.

    Amazing what church people argue over.
    THE APOSTOLIC YEARS
    33 AD – 324 A.D.

    The rapid growth and persecution of the early church caused it to be scattered across the known world.

    Acts 11:19 “Now they which were scattered abroad upon the persecution…) KJV

    PERSECUTION CAUSED THEM TO BE SCATTERED

    Scattered, (????????) (1289 & 1291) [diaspeiroo], our English ward dispatched comes from this. The disciples were scattered (dispatched). This was a way God had to get them out of there comfort zone, they were happy at home.

      Troy Day Jewish Sabbath is always Saturday no matter how you slice it.
      The Passover feast lasted a week like most of the feasts.
      This particular “high day” I believe was representing the year of Jubilee.
      The day of preparation was always Friday – the day when all Jewish households were preparing their Passover lamb by slaughtering it.
      I’ve never read Dake’s Bible and I’m not gonna start now!

      Poppy Thompson at least 150 we’re filled with the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost. It could be more but that is a minimum.

      Poppy Thompson you can only write so much about events that are happening using a scroll. The Holy Spirit was moving all over the Roman world even if the book of Acts only talked about the apostles.

      Just like today there are more miracles happening on the earth because there are more believers on the earth interacting through the gospel with the unsaved. Just because we don’t see lightning strike the earth every three seconds doesn’t mean it’s not happening every three seconds. Miracles are like that happening all over the world all the time!

      Poppy Thompson I believe the book of acts says there were 150 in the Temple on the day of Pentecost when the Holy Spirit was poured out for the first time on the believers thus creating the church. (on a sidenote: they were meeting in the temple for prayer not the upper room, as many confuse).

      Troy Day Jesus Christ was crucified on Wednesday and buried prior to sunset. I have biblical proof but don’t have time to go through it all right now. Keep in mind that there are 2 Sabbaths on Passover week. The High Sabbath of Passover, and the weekly Sabbath. That is key to understanding the timeline.

      Also look at Luke 24:1, it seemingly contradicts Matthew 28:1, does it not? But only when veiwed from our western mindset. The English tanslations for the most part missed the hebraic concept of what a day was.

      Passover always talked on the 5th day of he week based on Hebrew calendar, which begins at sunset on Wednesday on the Gregorian calendar. Matt 28 states that the women headed to the tomb while it was dawning towards the 1st day of the week. The word for dawning can be used as dusk as well based on context. Since it said towards the 1st day, it was not yet the 1st day. But the sun was beginning to set. In Luke 24 the translators used morning because of the western mindset. The word translated as very early had the definition of descending. Used in context with the word translated as dawn, which could be dusk, the context shows that the sun was setting. Further context is that they would have been keeping the Sabbath and not touching the body on the Sabbath but would want to handle a dead body as quickly as possible so it is logical to assume they would be prepared and on site as soon as the Sabbath ended at sunset. When they arrived at the tomb, Jesus had already risen, meaning He rose on the weekly Sabbath, or our Gregorian Saturday prior to sunset. Jesus also said that as Jonah was in the belly of fish for 3 days and tree nights, so would he be in the grave. 3 days and 3 nights is 72 hours matter how you slice it, not 36 hours as claimed by the RCC Easter story. That puts his burial on Wednesday just prior to sunset which was the High Sabbath of Passover. The lambs for the Passover sacrifice were always slain and prepared prior to sunset on the 4th day, Wednesday prior to sunset. With God being so particular about times and seasons, why would anyone who studied His plan of atonement under the Old Covenant, the foreshadowing of atonement in the New Covenant, think that He would alter that plan when the true Sacrifice was made?

      I get tired of believers who always want to “return” to Jewish “roots” and emphasize some nuanced ideas that few have heard, and then hold it over Bible believers, as if their missing something. It often turns into legalism or a religious spirit. I like details that enhance the faith we have, but I don’t like feeling beat over the head with them. When so called ministers emphasize those Jewish details to the exclusion of all of us “stupid” Christians, this is what 1/4 of Paul’s letters where about – confronting the Judaizers who where confusing the believers!!!!!!!! I’m not saying that’s what is going on here. What’s going on here is total confusion and loss of historical reality. Watch the 3 minute segment of my message I posted in this thread and clarity will reign down from heaven.

    God to say something it does not say. The bible says Jesus rose on the third day. He did not rise on Saturday. He rose on Sunday the first day of the week. Mar_16:9 
    Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.” So please quit saying he was risen on Saturday evening. The first day of the week is Sunday. If he rose on Sunday and Sunday early in the morning can be called one day, then the day before would be Saturday, two days, and the the day before that would be Friday (3 days buried.) Three days buried (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.) Jesus rose on the third day. The thrid day was Sunday in which He appeared in 5 post resurrection appearances. The two on the road to Emmaus state the same fact. It was Sunday night and they called Sunday the third day. Luke 24:21  But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel: and beside all this, to day is the third day since these things were done. ” If they called Sunday nite the third day, Then Saturday would be the second day and Friday would be the first day. So again according to the two on the road to Emmaus, Friday day he was crucified and buried, Saturday the second day, and Sunday the third day. If you say he was crucified on Thursday then you make Sunday the 4th day. I will show you about 30 other verses showing you it was Sunday – the third day. Saturday the second day and Friday the first day. FB message me or email me And I will show them to you.
