Three Sabbaths following the crucifixion


Peace Crusader and Echo

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.

      I found a few weeks ago Acts 17:2, to wit: “And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them, and three sabbath days reasoned with them out of the scripture.” In my study, I found three consecutive sabbath days. They are:

      3760 Av 30, 1 BC 08-17, Thursday, Crucifixion of Jesus
      3760 Elul 1, 1 BC 08-18, Friday, New Moon Festival, high day sabbath
      3760 Elul 2, 1 BC 08-19, Saturday, regular weekly Saturday sabbath
      3760 Elul 3, 1 BC 08-20, Sunday, sabbath of the followers of Jesus
      3760 Elul 4, 1 BC 08-21, Monday, discovery of the missing corpse of Jesus

      So Jesus was crucified on a Thursday, three sabbath days followed (New Moon Festival, Saturday sabbath, and sabbath of the followers of Jesus), and discovery of the missing corpse of Jesus.
