THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS?

This is one way to look at this solemn occasion.

IF Jesus was crucified on Friday, that would give Him one full day and part of two other days to be dead, being there is no contradictions that He was raised on Sunday.

John 19:12-14 And from thenceforth Pilate sought to release him: but the Jews cried out, saying, If thou let this man go, thou art not Caesar's friend: whosoever maketh himself a king speaketh against Caesar. [13] When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he brought Jesus forth, and sat down in the judgment seat in a place that is called the Pavement, but in the Hebrew, Gabbatha. [14] And it was the preparation of the passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King! [KJV]

This event took place NOT during for preparation for the Sabbath, but for during preparation for the Passover. This was the evening of Nisan 14. Nisan is the first month in the Jewish calendar, which corresponds with our March. Nisan was formerly Abib (Ex.12:2; 13:4; Deut.16:1). The name ‘Abib’ was changed after the captivity to Nisan (Neh.2:1; Esth.3:7).

The lambs were being slaughtered, cleaned, and roasted with fire and were eaten that night after sunset, which began Nisan 15.

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. [KJV]
This Sabbath was known as the “high Sabboth” because Nisan 15 began the seven day feast of unleavened bread. It’s first day was a Sabboth with a “holy convocation” and “no manner of work shall be done” (Ex.12:16). The Passover was the most important of all feasts, and obviously this was the “high” Sabboth to which John referred.

It was different from an ordinary Sabboth day. Only once in every seven years would the “high” Sabboth coincide with the regular Saturday Sabboth. In AD 32, the first day of the unleavened bread on which the Passover lamb was eaten, occurred on Thursday. Nisan 14 ended at sunset Thursday, and this all in fits perfectly with Jesus riding into Jerusalem on the donkey’s colt (Luke 19:30-38), which would have been Nisan 10, when the chosen, sacrificial lambs were separated from the flock and watched for four days.

It is therefore no mystery or coincidence that Christ Jesus offered Himself on Nisan 10, a Sunday (our Palm Sunday).

The following is a schedule of Jesus’ last days on Earth as Man:

  • Nisan 10, Sunday (Palm Sunday) --- Christ offers Himself as God’s Perfect Passover Lamb. (Luke 19:30-38).
  • Nisan 14, Thursday --- the day the Passover lambs were slain. This is the day when “Christ our Passover” was nailed to the cross (1 Cor. 5:7).
  • Nisan 17, Sunday --- Resurrection Sunday! Jesus rose from the dead!

Luke 24:1-9 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, [9] And returned from the sepulchre, and told all these things unto the eleven, and to all the rest. (KJV)

This special Sabboth (“high Sabboth”) went from Thursday sunset to Friday sunset. The regular Sabboth went from Friday sunset to Saturday sunset, so the women could not possibly get to the grave until Sunday morning for they were not permitted to do any work whatsoever. Christ was in the grave three nights as well as three days.

Matthew 12:40 For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. (KJV)
