Was Jesus crucified on Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday?

Recommended Posts

Evidences it wasn't Friday:

3 days and nights doesn't work, no matter how you slice them up from Friday.

Mark 16:1,2

And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the [mother] of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him. And very early in the morning the first [day] of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun.

Jesus rose before dawn of the first day of the week. After the (7th day) sabbath would have Mary not at the tomb when she saw Him.

A more correct translation of Matt 28:1 is not "sabbath" but "sabbaths" as in Young's Literal Translation:

Matthew 28:1 (YLT) And on the eve of the sabbaths, at the dawn...

"Sabbath" generally refers to the 7th day, but it can also refer to a holy day, such as Passover. Passover occurs on the 14th of the month so it can fall on any day of the week.

Put these together, and you're looking a year with a Thursday Passover, the next day the gals go spice shopping, the Saturday sabbath occurs, and before dawn on Sunday He rises, and after this second sabbath Mary arrives at the tomb.

Probably.

The day of preperation, the day before the Sabbath ... Thursday.   Remember, the Sabbath begins Friday at dusk.

 

Mark 15:42-47

 

 

Now when evening had come, because it was the Preparation Day, that is, the day before the Sabbath, Joseph of Arimathea, a prominent council member, who was himself waiting for the kingdom of God, coming and taking courage, went in to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. Pilate marveled that He was already dead; and summoning the centurion, he asked him if He had been dead for some time. So when he found out from the centurion, he granted the body to Joseph. Then he bought fine linen, took Him down, and wrapped Him in the linen. And he laid Him in a tomb which had been hewn out of the rock, and rolled a stone against the door of the tomb. And Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses observed where He was laid.

 

 

Luke 23:52-54

 

 

This man went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. Then he took it down, wrapped it in linen, and laid it in a tomb that was hewn out of the rock, where no one had ever lain before. That day was the Preparation, and the Sabbath drew near.

But if you look at John 19:31 - Now it was the day of Preparation, and the next day was to be a special Sabbath.  So we have a Special Sabbath (Passover - the true Passover Lamb is here); Then the regular Sabbath (7th day of the week - Saturday).  As Jonah was 3 days and 3 nights in the belly of the great fish, so the Son of Man will be 3 days and 3 nights in the heart of the earth.   Thursday night (1), Friday night (2), Saturday night (3); and Friday day (1), Saturday day (2), then Christ arose on the first day of the week - Sunday Morning (3).

 

In Christ

but was he actually in the grave any Sunday Day   i would say no.

 

It seems to me that he would have to have been buried Wednesday at sundown.

 

Wednesday Night, Thursday Day

Thursday Night, Friday Day

Friday Night, Saturday Day

and arose sometime Saturday after sundown and before Sunday daybreak.
