Days Mean Something

3 BC has always been my go to date for the birth of Jesus according to the Revelation 12 sign lining up perfectly. And His death seems to point to 34 BC with the Passover falling on the first month on the 14th day. Passover started on the 1st month on the 14th day according to Scripture and this falls on our modern Wednesday because the High Sabbath or first day of unleavened bread was the next day. This is why Nicodemus and Joseph of Arimathea needed to take His body down to prepare it before sundown ie our Thursday because it was a high Sabbath they were coming up on. Then Friday or the 6th day of the week was a normal day that was followed by the regular weekly 7th day Sabbath. This is why you have to go back on a calendar and check how it lines up. When checking, you come to 34 AD and when doing the math, you get the age of Jesus. 36. Not 33.

Now when you count the day he gave up the Ghost at 3pm on the 14th of Nisan/Aviv, you actually have 4 hours left until sunset and the start of the feast day, which in this case was a high Sabbath on 15th of Nisan. The sunset in Jerusalem on Passover for 34AD was at exactly 7:01. The prophecy that Jesus gives us says 3 DAYS and 3 NIGHTS, in that order. It doesn’t say evening and morning like the creation account, it says day and night and there’s a big difference between those two. The evening and morning in the creation account is what connects the day (light) to the night (darkness) and the greater and lesser lights to form two 12 hour time periods that in turn form a complete day. And what rules the day? The greater light, the Sun.

The first day of the 3 DAYS and 3 NIGHTS prophecy Jesus gave us started at 3pm when He gave up the Ghost. Like I mentioned, you still have 4 hours left in that day at that point. This is when the count starts for what Jesus said. So He wasn’t in the grave 72 full hours but was at least at a minimum in the grave for 60 hours. This is what we know based on Scripture. And we know He was “dead” for no more 64 hours.
