The debate of the many religious groups continues but only one can be correct.
Which one, Passover Memorial or Easter do you believe it should be? Debate is not the purpose of this late night post. It is being presented because the savior indeed paid the debit but not a debit he owed, it was our debit that he paid for with his life. Yet the timing is important too.
The timing is important since the scripture provides us the sequence of events and Easter another.
And that he the true messiah rose from the dead on the third day confirmed who he really is. In humbling himself in obedience even to dying on a stake for transgressions but not his own( he was without sin) He was exalted and given the name above every name, that at the name of Yahshua the messiah every knee shall bow of those in the heavens and in the earth and under the earth. And everyone will confess to the glory of Yahweh the Father that Yahshua the messiah is Lord. Look at Philippians 2: 5-11
Yahshua said that even as Jona was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, even so, would the Son of man be in the heart of the earth. Both Jona and Yahshua were dead.
According to the scriptures, Yahshua was the Passover lamb who was going to fulfill the Heavenly sacrifice of which the earthly was only a type. And Yahshua was also going to accomplish this in the sequence of events that made up the earthly ceremony.
According to the scriptures, Yahshua was tried on the night of the 13 th Nissan our Tuesday after dark and through the night to our Wednesday morning. ( Jewish reckoning the new day begins after sunset ). After sunset it became then the 14 th of Nissan. The 14 th is the day when the lambs would be sacrificed.
Yahshua was with the disciples minus Judas Iscariot in the garden late Tuesday when the religious authorities with the mob came to arrest him. Then in the early morning of the 14 th after Yahshua had been mocked spit upon and beaten with a whip almost to death, he was lead out and impaled on the stake. Yahshua was nailed to the stake and hung there suffering, thirsty and being continually mocked until 3 Pm at which time he said it was finished and he of his own doing breathed his final breath and died.
Just before sunset Nicodemus and Joseph were given permission to remove the Lord’s body from the stake so the body could be in the tomb before the new day started just after sunset.
Yahshua died on Wednesday the 14 th at 3 Pm (approx). was placed in the tomb by sunset. Three days and three nights later he was raised back to life because he was without sin in himself. It was our sin he bore the punishment of. So Wednesday the 14 th to Thursday the 15 th is one ; Thursday to Friday the 16 th is two: and Friday to Saturday the 17 th is three. Saturday is actually the Sabbath.
Yahshua could be raised to life again anytime on the 17 th . Though it could also be at 3 Pm three full days and night after he died.
The Women made their first trip to the tomb just after sunset on the sabbath and Yahshua was already gone.
The wonder of the women visiting is interesting in itself because the scriptures record at least three visits by the women. They were at the tomb on our Sunday Yahshua was already gone and did not show himself to Mary Magdala until later in the morning.
So according to the scriptural account Easter is not the day Yahshua rose from the dead and has nothing to do with our savior.
