Passover this year begins at sunset on the 27th of March; which is a Saturday, viz:
the pesach lamb is supposed to be dedicated, slain, and roasted with fire Saturday
afternoon in preparation for dinner that night in accord with Ex 12:1-21.

This year's Passover is interesting because the beginning coincides with the end of
the weekly sabbath; so pious Jews will have to observe two consecutive holy days
this year seeing as how Passover itself is a holy day (Ex 12:16 & Lev 23:5-8) and
that's regardless of which day of the week it falls on. In other words; the day of the
routine weekly sabbath is pinned to Saturday while Passover's special day floats.


FYI: Other floating holy days are Yom Kippur and the Feast of Trumpets which are
themselves specifically categorized as sabbaths (Lev 16:29-34 & Lev 23:23-25)
implying that any holy day whereupon no work is allowed, regardless of its position
in the week, is observed the same as a normal sabbath day. It is very essential to
keep this in mind in order to avoid making a mistake when charting the chronology
of Christ's crucifixion and resurrection.

Jesus ate his last pesach the night of his arrest (Matt 26:17-20, Mark 14:12-17,
and Luke 22:7-15) whereas the Jews ate their own pesach after Jesus was dead
and buried. (John 13:1-2, John 18:28-29, John 19:13-14, and John 19:31)

In other words: Jesus ate his own pesach early, i.e. one night ahead of the Jews'
night.

So then seeing as how the Jews are supposed to eat their pesach Saturday night
this year; then Jesus, were he to be crucified in 2021, would be eating his last
supper Friday night and then crucified and buried Saturday afternoon prior to
sunset. In other words: Jesus would be spending his first of three nights in the
tomb while the Jews are at home processing their Seders.

Jesus ate his own pesach early, i.e. one night ahead of the Jews' night.

Working with that information makes it really easy to chart Jesus' three nights in
the tomb for the year 2021 in accord with Matt 12:40.

This year Jesus would eat his last supper on Friday night March 26, wherein he
would also be arrested; and then next day Saturday March 27 stand trial, be
executed, and laid to rest.

So his three nights in the tomb for the year 2021 would be Saturday night, Sunday
night, and Monday night; with his resurrection taking place early Tuesday morning.


FYI: I've deliberately limited my chart to the three nights Jesus predicted in Matt
12:40 in order to avoid controversy over the placement of the three days.


NOTE: I highly recommend avoiding the impulse to force 24-hour days into the
narrative; and instead just let days be when the sun is up and nights be when the
sun is down, in accord with John 11:9-10.

Much is at stake concerning the timing of the crucifixion. There are key passages that sheds much light and there are metaphors that must be taken into account. One thing that tells us that Jesus was crucified on Friday, and even though he died at 3:00 o'clock in the afternood, Friday was still day 1 in the numbering of his time being dead. I know that because by the time he was taken down from the cross and put into the tomb, it was too late for the women to anoint his body for burial because the sabbath began at 6:00 PM, and permission for the burial had to be received from the Roman authorities before he could be buried.

John 19:38 And after this Joseph of Arimathaea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews, besought Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus: and Pilate gave [him] leave. He came therefore, and took the body of Jesus.

John 19:31 The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day, (for that sabbath day was an high day,) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and [that] they might be taken away.

39 And there came also Nicodemus, which at the first came to Jesus by night, and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about an hundred pound [weight].
40 Then took they the body of Jesus, and wound it in linen clothes with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury.

Here is Luke's version and if you read the chapter he will give all three days in a nutshell, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Lk 23:49 And all his acquaintance, and the women that followed him from Galilee, stood afar off, beholding these things.
50 And, behold, [there was] a man named Joseph, a counsellor; [and he was] a good man, and a just:
51 (The same had not consented to the counsel and deed of them [he was] of Arimathaea, a city of the Jews: who also himself waited for the kingdom of God.
52 This [man] went unto Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus.
53 And he took it down, and wrapped it in linen, and laid it in a sepulchre that was hewn in stone, wherein never man before was laid.
54 And that day was the preparation, and the sabbath drew on.
55 And the women also, which came with him from Galilee, followed after, and beheld the sepulchre, and how his body was laid.
56 And they returned, and prepared spices and ointments; and rested the sabbath day according to the commandmen
t.

The next verse.

1 Now upon the first [day] of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain [others] with them.

If the Jews knew anything they knew what the sabbath day was and they knew what the first day of the week was. The first day of the week was the day after the sabbath. It was the eighth day, the beginning of a new week. This is very important.


We can know from these verses that Jesus was dead on Friday, day 1. We know the women did not go to the tomb on the sabbath and it was day 2. We know that they went to the tomb on Sunday morning, very early, which means that Jesus rose from the dead very early on that day, soon after 6:00 AM, day 3.

This does not leave much doubt.

Anyone who can do math can figure this one out. This passage is definitive. It leaves no doubt what day Jesus rose from the dead. I will quote it.

1 Now upon the first [day] of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain [others] with them.
2 And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.
3 And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.
4 And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments:
5 And as they were afraid, and bowed down [their] faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead?
6 He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee,
7 Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.
8 And they remembered his words,

13 And, behold, two of them went that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem [about] threescore furlongs.
14 And they talked together of all these things which had happened.
15 And it came to pass, that, while they communed [together] and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near, and went with them.
16 But their eyes were holden that they should not know him.
17 And he said unto them, What manner of communications [are] these that ye have one to another, as ye walk, and are sad?
18 And the one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answering said unto him, Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem, and hast not known the things which are come to pass there in these days?
19 And he said unto them, What things? And they said unto him, Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people:
20 And how the chief priests and our rulers delivered him to be condemned to death, and have crucified him.
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.
22 Yea, and certain women also of our company made us astonished, which were early at the sepulchre;
23 And when they found not his body, they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, which said that he was alive.

So, we see that without a doubt this is the third day, the first day of the week, which is the day after the sabbath, which is the 8th day, the same day the women went and found the Lord risen from the dead.

So, counting backwards, Sunday = 3. the third day. Saturday = 2 the sabbath the second day. Friday = day 1

Sunday = 3
Saturday = 2
Friday = 1

The type is at stake if this is not true. God has gone to great lengths to establish the type.

We can talk about that later but I think this leaves no doubt about the resurrection of Jesus Christ concerning timing.

I think you may have your eras mixed up.

The OP in post No.1 reckons Christ's crucifixion as if it were to take place in the
year 2021 whereas your treatise charts the actual crucifixion as it took place back
then.

Ergo: your chronology is irrelevant to this thread and belongs somewhere else.

I highly recommend avoiding the impulse to force 24-hour days into the narrative;
and instead just let days be when the Sun is up and nights be when the Sun is
down

Seeing as how Jesus actually lived in the land of Israel those many years ago, then
it is my opinion that he is better qualified to define the hours of day and night back
then in his era than anyone in ours.

According to him: days were when the Sun is up, and nights were when the Sun is
down.

John 11:9-10 . . Are there not twelve hours in the day? If anyone walks in the
day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world. But if anyone
walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him.

This world's light is of course the Sun.


FYI: In the very beginning, God made a distinct difference between night and day
on Earth; so that His day on Earth is not a 24-hour amalgam of light and dark;
rather, His day on Earth is when the Sun is up, and His night on Earth is when the
Sun is down.

Gen 1:4-5 . . God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light
day, and the darkness he called night.

Gen 1:14 . . And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to
divide the day from the night

Gen 1:16 . .And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and
the lesser light to rule the night.

Gen 1:17-18 . . And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light
upon the earth, and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light
from the darkness.

If only people kept those God-given physical characteristics in mind when working
with the days and nights related to Matt 12:40, their calculations would be greatly
simplified.

I've deliberately limited my chart to the three nights Jesus predicted in Matt
12:40 in order to avoid controversy over the placement of the three days.

Some of the controversy is related to one side of the aisle insisting that portions of
a day count as a day, whereas the other side of the aisle insists that in order for a
day to count as a day, it has to be a whole day.

A preponderance of textual evidence strongly suggests that Jesus Christ's crucified
dead body was restored to life during the third day rather than the end of the day.

Matt 17:22-23 . . Jesus said unto them: The Son of man shall be betrayed into
the hands of men: and they shall kill him, and the third day he shall be raised
again.

Mark 9:31 . . He taught his disciples, and said unto them: The Son of man is
delivered into the hands of men, and they shall kill him; and after that he is killed,
he shall rise the third day.

Luke 9:22 . .The Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the
elders, chief priests and teachers of the law, and he must be killed and on the third
day be raised to life.

Luke 24:5-8 . . In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the
ground, but the men said to them: Why do you look for the living among the dead?
He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with
you in Galilee: "The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, be
crucified and on the third day be raised again."

Luke 24:21-23 . .We trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed
Israel: and beside all this, today is the third day since these things were done. Yea,
and certain women also of our company made us astonished, which were early at
the sepulcher; and when they found not his body, they came, saying, that they had
also seen a vision of angels, which said that he was alive.

Luke 24:46 . . He said unto them: Thus it is written, and thus it behooved Christ
to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day

Acts 10:40 . . God raised him up the third day

1Cor 15:4 . . he rose again the third day

The day that Jesus was crucified coincides with preparation day (John 18:28 & John
19:14) which is the day during which pious Jews prepare for their Seder in accord
with instructions per the 12th chapter of Exodus. That's the day when Passover's
lambs are slain; but it's not till after sundown that the ritual is finalized by they're
consumption.

So then, I do not recommend counting preparation day as one of the three days
that Jesus predicted per Matt 12:40 because the Jews' preparation day was the day
of his own preparation when he too was slain along with all the other lambs, viz:
Jesus didn't become our Seder per 1Cor 5:7 till after sundown.


FAQ: If the ritual isn't finalized till the lambs are consumed: then how does one
finalize Jesus as a Passover? By cannibalizing his remains?


A: Well; the difficulty with cannibalizing Jesus' remains is that there are no
remains. His dead crucified body was restored to life; and yet according to portions
of the sixth chapter of John's gospel, Jesus' flesh must be eaten if people are to
have any hope at all of escaping the sum of all fears.

Instructions given for the original Passover included painting a lamb's blood on the
doorposts of people's homes. That step in the procedure was never repeated
because all Passovers following the original were for a different purpose.

The original served to protect people from God, whereas succeeding Passovers
protect nobody from God because they merely commemorate the original. This is
very important.

1 Cor 5:7 . . Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us

Now the point is: it's necessary to somehow apply Jesus' blood in order to obtain its
protection.

The original Passover's blood was applied with a brush made of a desert shrub
called hyssop. Quite a few of the expositors that I study under are convinced that
hyssop symbolizes faith. In a nutshell, the application of Jesus' blood is
accomplished by simply believing it's an effective protection from the wrath of God.

And like the original Passover lamb's blood, Jesus' blood has to be applied only
once, and from then on its purpose is merely commemorated by a communion
service sometimes called the Lord's Supper, a.k.a. the Eucharist.

John 6:53 . . Jesus said to them: Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you drink
the Son Of Man's blood, you have no life in you.

In all the years that I was an active Roman Catholic, not once was I given the wine
species to drink. The obvious conclusion to draw is that I was dead the entire time.

It gets worse:

John 6:56 . . He who drinks my blood abides in me, and I in him

Jesus abides in his own, not visibly, but invisibly, i.e. via his spirit.

Rom 8:9-10 . . But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of
God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His.
And if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because
of righteousness

So then, if transubstantiation effectively conveys Jesus' blood in the wine species
per John 6:54, then due to my being deprived of the wine species, not only was I
dead, but neither was I abiding in Christ nor he abiding in me, and neither was I
his, i.e. not one of Jesus' sheep.

I was on active duty with the 101st Airborne Division during the Cuban missile crisis
back in October of 1962. My unit was fully armed and equipped ready to be in the
air to Cuba within one hour had President Kennedy given us the green light.

Passover is an excellent time of year for many of us to remember how near we
came to eternal suffering at one time or another due to close brushes with death
before we were saved.

FAQ: Why are wafers wrong for the Communion service?

A: Jesus didn't give his men wafers that night; he gave them pieces of torn bread.
Things like biscuits, cookies, wafers, and crackers are too nice; they fail to speak of
the violence done to Jesus' body the next day.

The man that emerged from the three hours of darkness on the cross was so badly
injured that even his own mother wouldn't have recognized him had she not been
there to see for herself.

Isa 52:14 . . Just as there were many who were appalled at him-- his appearance
was so disfigured beyond that of any man, and his form marred beyond human
likeness

Did the Romans do that to Jesus? No; Jesus' destruction was the handiwork of his
own beloved benefactor.

Isa 53:10 . . It was Jehovah's will to crush him and cause him to suffer

If God would do something like that to His own son; think what He might have in
store for folk who mock Jesus' crucifixion, and write it off as a silly fantasy.

Luke 22:19 . . He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them,
saying: This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.

1Cor 11:23-24 . . I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you: The Lord
Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, and when he had given thanks, he
broke it and said: This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.

The bread that Jesus served his men isn't specifically identified as either leavened
or unleavened. It's translated from the Greek word artos; which basically speaks of
ordinary bread; but not always because artos is somewhat ambiguous.

For example Jesus called the sacred bread artos (Matt 12:3-4). Well, for sure that
particular bread is not ordinary bread. According to Lev 24:5 it's only ingredient is
virgin flour, i.e. the sacred bread was unleavened.

* This is important because the sacred bread wasn't food offered to God, rather
food blessed of God and offered to the priests. Well; we can't imagine God offering
His priests bread made from fermented dough, rather, bread made from the best
and the freshest ingredients. (cf. John 6:26-58)

So we can safely assume that bread described as artos is nondescript; and a pretty
weak argument that Jesus and his men ate the wrong kind of bread with their
Seder.


FAQ: What constitutes unleavened bread?

A: The essential consideration when undertaking unleavened bread is age.

Given time, fresh dough will spoil on its own without the addition of yeasts and/or
starters because all flour, no matter how carefully it's milled and packaged,
contains a percentage of naturally-occurring fungi.

Back in the day, there were no sanitary, indoor facilities with which to grind flour;
in point of fact, they used stones exposed to the open air so their product was no
doubt contaminated with far more fungi than in our day; which means that back in
Moses' day-- and in Jesus' day too --there was no such thing as flour containing
zero yeasts. It all contained yeasts, more or less, and without refrigeration and
there was no practical way to stop fresh dough from fermenting.

Passover is supposed to be eaten with bread made from fresh dough rather than
dough that's been allowed time to ferment. Sourdough bread is safe for human
consumption, but it doesn't convey a sense of urgency. Fresh dough for dinner
bread is the dough of choice when people are in a hurry to get fed and get going.

Ex 12:11 . . This is how you are to eat it: with your cloak tucked into your belt,
your sandals on your feet and your staff in your hand. Eat it in haste

Ex 12:38-39 . . And a mixed multitude also went up with them, along with flocks
and herds, a very large number of livestock. And they baked the dough which they
had brought out of Egypt into cakes of unleavened bread. For it had not become
leavened, since they were driven out of Egypt and could not delay, nor had they
prepared any provisions for themselves.

(cf. Gen 18:6 & Gen 19:3)

FAQ: Does unleavened bread for Passover have to be made with only flour and
water?


A: To my knowledge unleavened bread for Passover can be made with any
ingredients you desire except for one very unacceptable material: fermented
dough, a.k.a. starter.

1Cor 5:6 . . Do you not know that a little leaven, leavens the whole lump?

That's actually saying that a little ferment, will cause an entire batch of fresh dough
to spoil and thus render it no longer virgin.

I suspect it's for that very reason that God requires the Jews to ensure there is no
fermented dough anywhere in their homes before they start making bread for
Passover lest they inadvertently contaminate their fresh dough with remnants of an
older dough (Ex 12:15 and Ex 12:19). Nowadays some Jews even go so far as to
either discard, donate, give away, or sell all their old cookware and buy brand
spanking new kitchen equipment for preparing their Passover bread.


FAQ: Is it okay to bake in an oven?

A: To my knowledge, the Bible does not specify a method for cooking unleavened
bread. Sarah made hers on a griddle (Gen 18:6). I'd imagine you could even boil it
to make dumplings. (Can't boil the lamb, the whole critter has to be roasted with
fire: Gen 12:9)


FAQ: What about the size and shape?

A: I really don't think that matters; nor does it matter how the bread is served. Get
creative; enjoy your food, and have fun. Passover night may have been grim for
the Egyptians but it was a joyous event for the Jews; they were getting out of
Dodge free as emancipated people.


FAQ: What's with the bitter herbs? (Ex 12:8)

A: Nondescript sauces and/or dips, e.g. John 13:26.

FAQ: Didn't Jesus have wine with his last supper? Where'd that come from?

A: God didn't command wine for a beverage in the 12th chapter of Exodus; it
became a man-made, ethnic tradition; which doesn't make it eo ipso bad. Although
wine with Passover dinner is a rabbinical invention, Jesus didn't dispute it. The Lord
was sometimes a bit peeved with the Jews' traditions; but not always since they
were his heritage too as well as theirs. (cf. Matt 23:23)

Hypothetically, some of Moses' people kill their lambs, roast them with fire, and
using hyssop, paint their lambs' blood around the doors of their homes. But the
people bake the wrong bread for dinner that night: it's leavened instead of
unleavened.

What will happen when the destroyer comes through the Jews' community? Will the
firstborn sons in those homes be executed that night?

No; and the reason why is because Jehovah will only be looking for the lamb's
blood around the door; that's all. He will not be looking inside homes to examine
what people are eating.


Ex 12:23 . . For Jehovah will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he
seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, Jehovah will pass over
the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite
you.

Again, hypothetically, some of Moses' people go thru all the correct motions, but
this time they butcher their lambs into convenient pieces instead of cooking them
whole.

Will the firstborn sons in those homes be executed?

No; and the reason why is because Jehovah will only be looking for the lamb's
blood around the door; that's all. He will not be looking inside homes to examine
what people are eating.

Again, hypothetically, some of Moses' people go thru all the correct motions, but
this time they eat their lambs with sweet spices instead of bitter.

Will the firstborn sons in those homes be executed?

No; and the reason why is because God will only be looking for the lamb's blood
around the door; that's all. He will not be looking inside homes to examine what
people are eating.

Again, hypothetically, some of Moses' people go thru all the correct motions, but
this time their firstborn son is out for a stroll with his girlfriend at midnight when
Jehovah comes thru. Will that son be slain? Well; I should think so because the
blood made his house a place of safety and he was not in it.


Ex 12:22 . . And you shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is
in the basin, and strike the lintel and the two side posts with the blood that is in the
basin; and none of you shall go out at the door of his house until the morning.

I think it goes without saying that "none of you" included firstborn sons; them
especially!

In other words: the blood of the lambs only protected sons when in their houses,
just as Noah's ark only protected people when in the ark, and just as Jesus' blood
only protects people when in Christ, viz: in his body.

1Cor 10:6-7 . . Do not be idolaters, as some of them were; as it is written: The
people sat down to eat and drink and got up to play.

The Bible doesn't provide much detail at Ex 32:1-6 as to what went on in camp
while Moses was up on the mountain. But one thing we know for sure is that there
was a golden calf; and the "eat and drink" to which the apostle refers was a ritual
where people sacrificed to the calf and afterwards consumed the sacrifice as an act
of communion with it; as a sort of improvised Passover celebration:

"Aaron answered them: Take off the gold earrings that your wives, your sons and
your daughters are wearing, and bring them to me. So all the people took off their
earrings and brought them to Aaron. He took what they handed him and made it
into an idol cast in the shape of a calf, fashioning it with a tool. Then they said,
"These are your gods, O Israel, who brought you up out of Egypt. (Ex 32:2-4)

Though the idol is singular, the grammar refers to it in the plural and that's likely
because the Hebrew word translated "gods" is a plural noun. That last sentence
really should say "this is your God, O Israel, who brought you up out of Egypt"
because the next two verses say that their celebration was in honor of Jehovah.
(vs. 5 and 6)

Now, it's true that Jesus is the captain of our salvation in a manner similar to how
Jehovah was the captain of their salvation; but I think we need to be careful how
we honor him in that capacity. In other words: it's probably a good idea to avoid
building a shrine for Jesus because sure enough people will begin kneeling before it
and praying to it and maybe even kissing its feet so often that they wear one of its
big toes down like Peter's in Rome.

Christians sometimes accept invitations to their Jewish friends' homes for Passover.
Well; I think this is not a good idea because Passover is a uniquely Jewish
memorial.

I would say that if someone isn't born an Hebrew, nor a proselyte converted to
Judaism, then the Seder is strictly off limits and their Jewish friends should know
better than to invite them.

FAQ: Are Passovers observed away from Jerusalem acceptable?

A: They are unacceptable. (Deut 16:5-6)

Passover is a pilgrimage type of feast. If Jews are out of country and can't make it
to Israel on time, they have to wait and do theirs one month later than usual (Num
9:5-11). Everyone who partakes of a Seder this coming March 27, 2021 will be
doing so illegally should they do so while here at home.

In addition, the lamb has to be roasted with fire and eaten entirely intact. It must
not be butchered (Ex 12:9). Modern Seders consist of dismembered lambs.
Everyone who partakes of a lamb in that condition will be doing so illegally.

The rules governing Passover are specific (Num 9:12). Failure to comply with them
merits execration. (Num 9:13 and Deut 27:26)
