"Nisan 14th"

“Nisan 14”

Blessings Folk!

Again, another extended series of passages that cover the last day of the Lord on this earth...well sorta, up to that time, at His first coming...etc. etc. Happy Happy

This was the day that the Lord was crucified.

The Lord died at 3 p.m. on Nisan 14 - our Wednesday afternoon.
Yes. He did not die on “Good Friday”.

Why the error in the practice of most of the church?
Jesus was hurried off the cross and into a tomb due to the impending sabbath day.
It was not the weekly sabbath - friday sundown to saturday sundown.
The next day was the “holy convocation” - sabbath day - of the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread.

So, Jesus was killed Wednesday afternoon.
He was placed in the tomb by sundown
Thursday evening/day - Day 1.
Friday evening/day - Day 2.
Saturday evening day - Day 3

Jesus Himself said that He would be in the earth for three days and three nights - this negates the “partial day” argument.

Jesus was resurrected sometime early on the first day of the week...our Saturday evening/Sunday morning early.

The Scripture is really quite clear about this.

So, read the Word. (Beware the man-provided titles, etc.)
Realize what the Lord endured for us.
Rejoice in Him.
Call upon Him. Be saved today...especially if the Lord is revealing that you are “religious”, yet have not been transformed.

Note, Jesus abolished “the lamb” and established a New Covenant.
Also, we see that a large portion of the Gospels - Matthew, Mark, Luke, John - deal with what happened on this day.

Spend the next couple of days reading the passages...

Matthew 26:14-28:10

Mark 14:10-16:15

Luke 22:1-24:49

John 13:1-20:23

We give thanks.
