People's Bible Notes for Matthew 26:17


Mt 26:17 The first [day] of the [feast of] unleavened bread. Strictly speaking, the 15th of Nisan (part of our March and April), after the paschal lamb was killed, but here the 14th day (Thursday). See Ex 12:16. This suggests one of the most difficult questions of Scripture chronology, whether the Lord at the passover one day before the regular Jewish passover, or at the usual time. Pressense, Milman Ellicott, Townsend, Alford, Neander, Farrar, and many other great authorities, hold that he ate it the day preceding, and died on the day and about the time the Jewish passover lambs were slain. The statements of John, that the supper was eaten, the Lord betrayed and condemned before the passover, seem positive (Joh 19:14). Where wilt thou that we prepare . . . the passover? The passover must be eaten in the place where the Lord's name was recorded, or where the tabernacle or temple was located, according to the directions given in De 16:1-15.

    Just to continue from my earlier translation which submitted itself before l was done....lt is then 72 hours, an agreeable 3 day period the Lord predicted as per Jonah,from 6pm end ofWednesday beginning of thursday to 6pm Saturday end of sabbath beginning of sunday ,thus if we erroneously believe on a friday crucifixion, Jesus being buried as evening approached to sunday early morning, then 3 days,72 hours, do not tarry, unless it is sunday evening.Praise God!

  • Nkosinathi Ngulube for verse 17
    The Passover was originally observed the previous evening, just after sunset, as in God 's calendar a day is 6pm to 6pm.So Jesus observed it the correct way which fell on a Wednesday and not the jewish way.The following day, Thursday, a high sabbath, beginning at 6pm, Jesus was crucified prior and died about 3pm.Everyone left to prepare for the passover meal the jewish passover .Jesus could not be left hanging on the cross, thus Joseph understood that our Lord be buried before evening ,before 6pm, before end Wednesday which, according to our roman calendar is thursday.Jesus is buried then before 6pm God 's wednesday, our thursday and thus is in the grave for three days, Thursday, Friday and resurrects on the Sabbath, saturday.Since they knew how to keep the sabbath, understandably, 6pm to 6pm, that means 6pm on that Saturday is the beginning of Sunday. So the Lord over sabbath surely resurrects then.The early sunday morning can thus be referred to as the 6pm satu
