THREE SABBATHS FOLLOWING THE CRUCIFIXION©

In Yahoo Answers, I asked in Languages if Matthew 28:1 and Mark 16:1 are singular or plural (Peace173). A genuine Greek, Kimon, answered that the first is plural and the second, singular. His answer confirms my suspicion that there was a translation error of the Holy Bible from Greek to English.
The Holy Spirit revealed to us (plural) that Jesus was crucified on August 17. I heard this date in 1983. When we connected to the Internet in 1999, I embarked on a study since no one was able to help me if there is any ring of truth in the date. After four years, in 2003, I found it to be true and correct. The year, 1 BC.
Matthew 28:1 is plural because there were really more than one Sabbath following Jesus’ crucifixion. The Sabbaths were: first, the high day Sabbath which I found to be the New Moon Festival on 3760 Elul 1 (1 BC August 18) (John 19:31); second, the regular weekly Saturday Sabbath on 3760 Elul 2 (1 BC August 19); and third, the Sabbath of the followers of Jesus on Sunday, 3760 Elul 3 (1 BC August 20).
Mark 16:1 is singular because it refers only to the Sabbath of the followers of Jesus on Sunday, 3760 Elul 3. It was only after their Sabbath that Mary Magdalene, et al., went to the market to buy the sweet spices that they would anoint Jesus early the following morning. Jesus was crucified in summer wherein the market is opened in the morning, closed from about noon to about 3 or 4 pm because it was hot, and opened again till about 30 minutes to one hour after the sun has set. This is the window of opportunity after their Sabbath when the women bought the sweet spices. That Sunday was a regular weekly market day and neither a high day nor the regular Saturday Sabbath.
