Just What Day Was Jesus Christ Crucified?

For many years I wondered why Easter was celebrated on Sunday and why Good Friday was seen as the day of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.


As a young man, in my teens, I inquired of my instructors asking, ‘If Jesus was crucified on a Friday and died at 3 PM on that Friday, how does that make up 3 days and 3 nights as you teach me in class?’


My inquiries varied but there was no answer forthcoming that allowed me to feel comfortable.


Let’s look at what God said:


Matthew 12: 40For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.


Jesus had been asked to prove that He was the Son of God and gave this in reply. His Word must be taken as truth as we look into this very important matter. After all, as Christians, we must know and realize the absolute truth as we know that Jesus was and is the only ‘begotten’ Son of God. If He did not fulfill God’s Word and spend 3 days and 3 nights then we are guilty of a false worship and utter dolts for our beliefs.


If Jesus was indeed crucified on a Friday and died at 3 PM and later laid in a tomb if we count the days we arrive at: Friday night (1 night), Saturday (1 day) and Saturday night, 2nd night).


Scripture explicitly says 3 days and 3 nights. No equivocation and a clear statement.


Most Christians are being taught improperly! By the teachings we can openly see that 2 nights and 1 day do not fulfill God’s Word!


Jesus said that He would be in the earth for 3 days and 3 nights as proof that He was the son of God. If what God said was not  fulfilled then Jesus was not the Son of God!


Let’s look at why religious leaders taught that the crucifixion occurred on a Friday.


We all know that Saturday is considered the Sabbath. But we must realize that there is the Sabbath of every week and an annual Sabbath!  In the Jewish teachings the day before a holy day is called a ‘Day of Preparation.’  At the time wherein Jesus lived just as in current times the ‘day of Unleavened Bread is an annual Sabbath. With that known we see that Jesus was crucified on a, ‘Day of Preparation,’ as set forth in God’s Word.


Luke 23: 52Going to Pilate, he asked for Jesus’ body. 53Then he took it down, wrapped it in linen cloth and placed it in a tomb cut in the rock, one in which no one had yet been laid. 54It was Preparation Day, and the Sabbath was about to begin.


The ‘Annual Sabbath differs from the weekly Sabbath and this, although hard to grasp, is factual.


Also the time we have been taught of Jesus’ death is in error. In the days of Jesus time was measured in military settings and not as we do today.  The 3rdhour was 9 AM , the 6th hour, noon and the 9th hour was, by our time, 3 PM .


So, we have learned of the annual Sabbath, the Day of Preparation and the correct time settings.


Mark 14: 1Now the Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread were only two days away, and the chief priests and the teachers of the law were looking for some sly way to arrest Jesus and kill him. 2“But not during the Feast,” they said, “or the people may riot.”


Mark 15: 25It was the third hour when they crucified him.


Mark 15: 33At the sixth hour darkness came over the whole land until the ninth hour. 34And at the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?”—which means, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”


As we see, Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, was crucified at 9 AM and died at 3 PM. Contrary to what we have been taught Jesus did not hang on the cross for 3 hours, He hung their for 6 hours. Imagine the agony He went through; for you…for you…for me!


Now let us regress and establish just what day Jesus was crucified. Remember 3 days and 2 nights?


We know by Scripture Mary Magdalene went to the tomb on a Sunday, the first day of the week.


Mark 16: 2Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb 3and they asked each other, “Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?”


If we look at the entire timeline we learn: On Wednesday morning Jesus was brought before Pilate and sentenced to death. He was crucified at 9 AM and died at 3 PM. Wednesday evening Jesus was buried. Thursday was the ‘annual Sabbath, the first of Unleavened Bread. Friday was the weekly preparation day preceding the weekly Sabbath and Saturday was the Sabbath.


Now count the days and nights.


Wednesday night, (1st night), Thursday night, (2nd night) and Friday night, (3rdnight), constitutes 3 nights. Thursday, (1 day), Friday, (2nd day), and Saturday, (3rd day).


Consulting all time studies we learn that Jesus was crucified April 25, The First Day of Unleavened Bread fell on April 26. Friday was the 27th and Saturday, the 28th was the weekly Sabbath.

Although man has changed actual dates, man has not changed the days of the week.  Wednesdays remained Wednesdays and the Jewish calendar stands in support of the days of events.


With this being so, Scripture was fulfilled, proving Jesus Christ to be the Messiah, our Lord and Savior.


When Mary Magdalene went to the tomb wherein Jesus had lain she saw an angel.


Luke 24: 6He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee7‘The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’ “


On the third day,’ Saturday, the evening before, Christ arose from the dead!


With this said there is nothing in the Bible, God’s Word, to support a Friday crucifixion or a Sunday resurrection! NOTHING!


Matthew 24:  4Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you “


Revelation 12: 9The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.    


Satan has been deceiving man for 6,000+ years and will not stop until Jesus Christ stops him. Unwitting Pastors continue to give us teachings that are not in God’s Word and they, themselves, must learn the Word of God as it is written.


You may ask why this is so important. What difference does it make?




If you try to teach anyone of Christianity and teach that person that God’s Word is true in every sense then tell that person that Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior was crucified on Friday and resurrected on Sunday, you are teaching false Scripture! No matter how you add it up, a Friday crucifixion with a Sunday resurrection allow 2 nights and 1 day! Jesus Himself said, on many occasions, 3 days and 3 nights. Even the people who watched Jesus die in the cross knew that!


Mark 15: 29Those who passed by hurled insults at him, shaking their heads and saying, “So! You who are going to destroy the temple and build it in three days, 30come down from the cross and save yourself!”


When you teach God’s Word you must speak in truth. You must not rely on teachings that are not of God’s Word! Remember, as a Christian you are a follower of Christ. As such you must speak undeniable words as God taught you!


(Closing prayer)


Almighty God, Father of us all, we come to You with praise on our lips and with love in our hearts. We bow in worship to You and ask that You accept our worship and render Your blessings upon us.


Lord, You gave us Your Beloved Son and had Him die for our sins. Disbelief in Jesus as the Messiah allowed men, who were cold hearted, to turn their backs on Him and deliver death through crucifixion to Him. For this we cry in our hearts. At the same time we cry we are able to rejoice at the resurrection of Your Son as You had prophesied many times.


Father, allow us to understand the Words You have delivered to us and to embrace the meaning thereof. It is with humble hearts that we seek You and the happiness of eternal lives with You in Paradise . Thank You Lord and enlighten our minds.


Father, as ever we ask for the protection of Your sons and daughters who stand to protect us from earthly harm. Whether they are in military service or in governmental service we ask that You watch over them and be with them at time of peril.


Lord, there is also the matter of our own government failing to correctly do our bidding and acting with only their own wishes for their purposes. At this time we ask that You intervene in our behalf and do as You wish for us and instill in our hearts the peace that only You can give.


We pray these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Your Son and our Lord and Savior, who is one with You and the Holy Spirit, One God, forever and ever,


Amen, amen and amen.

  1. Ismail Mohamed says:

    Please don’t publicize neither my name nor email as you would truly jeopardize my life by doing so—there’s a death penalty for leaving Islam and for speaking out against it in the Muslim world.

    An open letter to American, Canadian, Australian non-Muslims:
    I am a closet Egyptian ex-Muslim atheist and I’m still living in Egypt, which as most of you most likely know, lies within the very dark heart of Islam—the Middle East. I was appalled by the fact that so many Westerners, even college-educated bright minds, have actually bought the politically correct multicultural (PC MC) false propaganda and silly, baseless allegations of main-stream media (MSM), albeit Fox News is not as extremely and dangerously PC as the rest of MSM outlets, and the Islamically justifiable deceptive lies (‘taqiya’ and ‘kitman’) spewed by koranimals for the purpose of propagating pislam on every front (media, education system, legal system, food industry, etc.), desensitizing far too many Westerners to the existential threat it poses to the West and rendering them completely oblivious to its utterly barbaric, inhumane doctrines and teachings and the spine-chilling, dreadful, atrocious fate which surely awaits all kaffirs in the West should the West, especially Europe (I have a sad feeling that it may be already too late for Europe) fall to Islam, for example by pointing out to a few peaceful Qu’ranic Meccan verses written when that fucking bastard and sadistic warlord, Mohamed—the founder of Islam and whom is believed by Muslims to be the “perfect man” for them to emulate—was still a weak leader with few followers which were later abrogated by numerous, prescriptive, open-ended, much more violent Medinan verses as well as Hadiths (the sayings of Mohamed)—written as the basis for never-ending institutionalized gruesome, deadly violence perpetrated by pious Muslims against infidels until they are all converted or subjugated—when he became a strong enough leader with many followers. From its inception, Islam has strived to take over the world by arms and the Islamic juggernaut has been stopped in its tracks and Islam has been pushed back and limited to its current realm by countless bloody wars in which hundreds of millions of kaffirs have perished and as a result of having fallen behind the non-Muslim world as regards scientific advancement and technological innovation proceeding at break-neck paces throughout the renaissance and enlightenment ages and beyond in the West and, to a lesser extent, in some Eastern European and non-Muslim Asian countries.

    There’s been some backlash in the past few years in some European countries against the Koranimals and some decrease in dhimmitude and capitulation to Islam especially in France but I am not foreseeing a dramatic political sea change happening to put a halt to the Islamization of Europe and to turn back the Muslim invasion. The pathetic, pacifist, far-left EU politicians have disarmed the European citizens, of whom the vast majority are willfully ignorant of shitslam and/or are delusional with their minds so far locked in the cages of self-censoring PC insanity and so far have proven that they sacrifice critical thinking and rational response to the god of PC instead of actually standing up for themselves, their culture and values and instead of bending over, like a fear-paralyzed little pre-pubescent girl to her Muslim rapist, to the Islamic scum so an outbreak of a continent-wide civil war to purge Europe of the Islamic vermin, before Europe is demographically engulfed by Islam, will never be more than a pipe dream. Real freedom-loving Americans should take note and fight the Democrats tooth and nail to keep their guns and hopefully one day when Americans have had enough of the destructive presence of muzzies in America, Americans will rise up to give the muzzies in America an ultimatum–either they fuck off and return to their Islamic cesspools or it’s open season on every cousinfuckin’ one of ’em.

    ALL ISLAMO-AWARE American, Canadian and Australian INFIDELS MUST UNITE IN THE FIGHT AGAINST PISLAM regardless of belief, or lack thereof, race, ethnicity and home country.

    I thankfully urge you to copy and paste the following onto a Microsoft Office Word file and send it via email to every one you know, more specifically the Islamophilic ones, and your parliament representatives and to share it on Facebook and mainstream media news sites and to print it and hand out flyers to random people in the street—do whatever you can think of to make this go viral for the collective safety and good of all us kaffirs and the very survival of the West (raise the alarm, ring the alarm bells):

    This is the testimony of a closet ex-Muslim atheist born in Saudi Arabia and living since early childhood in Egypt.
    My testimony should serve as a piece of WARNINGS and ADVICE to NON-MUSLIM (‘KUFFAR’كفار or ‘KAFFARRA’ كفرة) WESTERNERS from a NON-MUSLIM (‘KAFFIR’ كافر) LIVING IN AN ISLAMIC THEOCRACY (falsely believed to be a democracy by naïve and gullible Westerners) shithole which I am eager to leave as soon as I can.
    I am a closet ex-Muslim atheist and under Islamic Sharia Law (applied fully in Saudi Arabia and Iran and, to a lesser extent, in almost all other Islamic countries), it’s a capital crime to be godless/irreligious and that is legally allowed to be punishable by vigilantes extra-judicially, as well as by the judicature, by death, usually by beheading, so it’s suicide to declare that I’m an atheist here. Islam which literally means SUBMISSION in Arabic is a hell-bent-on-world-domination, expansionist, militant, totalitarian, fascist Theo-political and socio-political supremacist ideology with a judicial aspect which masquerades as a religion and is the anti-thesis to everything democracy means and entails.

    From an Islamic theological perspective, the whole world is divided in two camps: dar al-Islam (دارالاسلام house/abode of Islam; that’s the Muslim world) and dar al-harb (الحرب دار house/abode of war; that’s the non-Muslim world upon which Islam relentlessly wages Jihad till it’s subjugated to the fold of Islam). In Islam, there’s no separation of Mosque and State; the Mosque IS the State and the judicature rules according to the Islamic legal code or aspect—the Sharia (الشريعة الإسلامية) under which there are no individual freedoms and freedoms taken for granted in the non-Muslim world such as criticizing Islam as with any other religion or ideology (it’s free speech NOT hate speech), apostasy of Muslims, proselytizing any other faith (for example, renown foreign Christian missionaries are not allowed into Islamic countries and native Christians and Christian converts will be massacred by the authorities and ordinary Muslim people alike if they dare to proselytize to Muslims), being openly homosexual and having extra-marital sex are capital crimes punishable by beheading, hanging and stoning to death and it’s illegal to have pre-marital sex, drink alcoholic beverages and eat pork which are punishable by harsh whipping/flogging/lashing and lengthy imprisonment.

    Furthermore, Muslims have been instructed in the Qu’ran and Hadiths to spread their ideology to all the world and subjugate all countries to Islamic Sharia even if done deceitfully (‘taqiya’ and ‘kitman’ doctrine تقية وكتمان) and even by terrorizing their non-Muslim civilians and “there’s no such thing as moderate Islam” (former Turkish PM Erdogan’s own words, Milliyet, Turkey, 21 August 2007) and the so-called moderate Muslims are not following, or ignorant of, their blood-drenched, horrific scriptures or just sleeping terrorist cells and ‘taqyia’ practicing stealth jihadis and all practicing, observant, devout, pious Muslims—who make up the overwhelming majority of Muslims—are Islamists (beards and hijabs and especially niqabs are dead give-aways of Islamists) who are and will sacrifice everything they have for global Islamic takeover and the re-establishment of a caliphate governed by Shariah laws under which all non-Muslims would either be forced to SUBMIT and convert to Islam or be beheaded except for Jews and Christians (‘people of the book’ أهل الكتاب) who would be made to convert to Islam or pay tribute tax (‘jizya’ جزية) to their Muslim masters and live as persecuted, cowed and threatened second-class citizens (‘zemmyeen’, ذميين) with most of their human rights forcibly denied and subjected to state-approved deadly attacks by rampaging Muslim mobs on a daily basis with no prosecution of the Muslim perpetrators whatsoever.

    Google and read the pact of Caliph Omar Bin Al-Khattab with the Copts عهد الخليفة عمر مع الاقباط النصاري who had been by far the most tolerant Caliph to grasp the scale of the unbearably appalling conditions under which ‘zemmyeen’ have lived even under his rule and are, to a lesser degree, living today in the Muslim world. Furthermore, please read the Sharia-compliant Cairo Declaration of ‘Human Rights’ in Islam abided by in member states of the OIC and see how it contradicts basic human rights enshrined in the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights to freedom of speech and freedom of conscience among many other issues. Moreover, please visit faithfreedom.org—which is banned in almost all Muslim countries by the way—and jihadwatch.com for further info and in addition, google and read an un-sanitized version of the “Reliance of the traveler” and the ‘Sira’ (biography) of Mohamed to open your eyes fully to the reality of this death cult.

    All Western citizens who cherish FREEDOM must STOP electing Muslim-appeasing, politically correct Liberal Leftists who will foolishly cause the West to be Islamized by their mass Muslim immigration policies and support for government provision of generous social welfare for, among other impoverished people, the notoriously massively procreating Muslim families (demographic jihad) and the Leftists’ advocacy and endorsement of cultural “enrichment” and multiculturalism (which is a good thing but not with Islamic culture) or else live hell under Islamic Sharia. Since its inception, Islam has always been at WAR with the WEST–in fact, has always been at WAR with the REST (the entire non-Muslim world)–and for the West to finally conquer Islam, FREEDOM-treasuring/loving patriotic Americans, Canadians and Australians MUST elect cultural nationalist politicians for parliament, government and presidency even if they are not White from the likes of Allen West (especially that, in his case, the Muslim-appeasing, politically correct Leftists cannot play the race card against him), including the White nationalists and White supremacists among infidel voters, who are well-aware of the reality of Islam, and who will have to: 1) STOP buying oil from oil-rich Muslim countries especially Saudi Arabia as a large proportion of Saudi petrodollars serves as the chief source of funding the spread of the Wahhabi Salafi sect of Islam (most intolerant interpretation of the most intolerant ideology الوهابية السلفية) and financing Jihad all over the world and instead, import oil from Canada, Brazil, Mexico and reluctantly Venezuela and Russia; 2) STOP immigration of Muslims and allow only non-Muslim legal immigrants into America, Canada and Australia; 3) DEPORT Muslim immigrants especially Islamists (beards, hijabs and niqabs are dead give-aways of Islamists) to their respective homelands and leave them to die off as most Muslim states are technological and economic failures and would not have the resources to even provide medical care and food for their people if it weren’t for the huge oil export revenues of some oil-rich Muslim countries and the civilized, developed world generously giving vital aid and basic life necessities to the oil-poor ones.

      Thank you very much for this information. I apologize to my readers for some of the language, but the information you have given us outweighs a few cuss words. Prayers will be ongoing for your continued safety, in Jesus’ name, Amen. Please stay safe, and you’re absolutely right about Islam… so many people need to throw political correctness out the window and call it what it is.. an evil, totalitarian ideology that fully intends to destroy civilization.

    • Very powerful post sir… I for one, am a God fearing/respecting Christian… I do not fear Islamic Jihadists in the least…

      My views on what Christ taught are different than most… The Jesus I know, read about, and love, not only saved my life here on planet earth, and came and lived and died and was resurrected for my eternal life, but also slew 185,000 ancient Assyrians in one night (as the Angel of the Lord)…. So trust me when I tell you this… Some of us Christians are ready and prepared for the threat at hand… And you will find no more dangerous animal on planet earth than a Godly follower of Jesus Christ…

      We are the most peaceful members of mankind generally, able to put up with more strife and unjust actions towards us for long long periods of time… But if we ever feel the line is crossed, we will wipe out the aggressors completely… We will kill them, their families, all their friends, their pets and livestock, burn down their crops, and their homes, and flatten every building that belongs to them without mercy… This is why we bare so much for so long… A lot of our delay in fighting rapist murdering torturers is due to our subconscious belief that all may come to Jesus Christ and be forgiven if they choose to do so… So plenty, and I mean a whole lot of plenty, of time is generally given to the monsters of the world to change their ways before we wipe them out as a whole…

      Isis, Islamic jihadists, and the like are truly sissy’s compared to us, and in our hearts we know it… We don’t even waste time on torture, rape, crucifixions, beheadings, and the like… It’s just a bullet or bomb to them and theirs, and a torch to all they held dear…
      If you don’t believe me, just take a look at Japan in WWII, or look at what we did to Dresden Germany…

      If the Islamic monsters of this world continue to push us as a nation, there may soon come a time when we all collectively say “To hell with the politicians and their limited actions” And elect real leaders to do what needs to be done… I fear for the world if the U.S.A. is ever pushed too far by these monsters… For then people will see just how ugly War, true war, not some limited action, is…
      ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ Baby!!!

      May the peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you…
      And may He return before we are pushed too far 🙂 🙂
