    what day of the week did Jesus die
  • Geoff - in Reply on Revelation 1
    Rose, I'm only guessing you read Matthew Henry's commentary: "The day and time when he had this vision was the Lord's day, the Christian sabbath, the first day of the week, observed in remembrance of the resurrection of Christ. " It would be the Christian sabbath not Jewish. That's part of the deviation of Christianity from Jewish traditions or laws. You may know or remember some of the conflict where Jewish Christians were trying to hold onto Jewish laws such as circumcision or not eating pork. And, Paul contested against that. As, the Gentile Christians were being "shamed." We do that today, which type of church is more "right?" Were often reminded that we can disagree on the little things but to agree on the major thing that Jesus is our saviour and God our Father and Creator. The example of one of the disciples who who questioned the Samaritan who taught of Jesus but was not "one" of them. And, Jesus said he who speaks favorably of Him is for Him. Sorry for the tangent. I think people contend against calling Sunday the Sabbath because that's seen as Jewish terminology. Hope some of that was helpful.

    According to the Jewish/Christian scriptures, it was on The Jewish Passover Holiday in order for Jesus Christ to fulfill all that was written in the Torah (Law & Prophets) concerning Him as "...The Lamb of God..." (John 1:*29; 5:1-*39, 40-47*)which ALWAYS falls on the Lunar Hebrew Calendar month of Nisan the 14th day. Which this year (2020) occurs on the solar calendar day of April 8th, the 4th day of the week (wednesday) giving us exactly 3 days and 3 nights in the earth, exactly as Jesus had Prophesied earlier about His death, burial & His RESSURRECTION (John 20:1).

    Returning to our world on the 1st day of the week, after sundown Saturday, the beginning of the 1st day of the week we call Sunday. After being chosen 4 days earlier (Palm Sunday or Sat. the 10th day of the Hebrew month of Nisan scripturally, this year, God's Lunar based calendar overlay these days/dates this year exactly!)

    Kol Tuv i.e. be well

    Shalom

    *John 20:30-31*

    He died on a Friday, sometime shortly after 3 PM in the afternoon. The Sabbath day was on a Saturday, and no one could be hanging on a cross on the Sabbath day according to Jewish Law. On the day of preparation, which would have been Friday, Jesus and two others were crucified. They had to be dead before sundown because at 6 PM, that was the end of the workday for the Jews, and they couldn't still be hanging there on Saturday, the Sabbath Day. It says it was about the ninth hour, or 3 PM when Jesus' Spirit left Him. They came by to break the legs of the other two, but when they came to Jesus to break His legs, He was already dead, so they did not break His legs. That in itself was the fulfillment of Psalms 34:20, and Exodus 12:4.

    My apologies for giving you Exodus 12:4. I meant to give Exodus Chapter 12 Verse 46, not Verse 4. Exodus 12:46 talks about the Passover Lamb, that they were not to break the bones of the Lamb, even after they kill it, the foreshadowing of the fulfillment of prophecy that when Messiah comes, the Lamb of God, to die for the sins of the world, that there was a prophecy about Him that not a bone would be broken.
