The Resurrection on One of the Sabbaths?

by Pmary

* The possible hidden scenes are a rash burial of a one piece linen cloth placed around Jesus' body on Wednesday the preparation (secular) day of Nisan 20th.
After the high sabbath (John 19:31) of Thursday Nisan 21st, Joseph returns to the tomb with Pilate's permission on the preparation (secular) day of Friday Nisan 22nd with linen strips and a headdress, and wraps the body with aromatic spices under a guarded watch well before the weekly Sabbath. The linen strips are re-discovered neatly rolled up on the evening (end) of Saturday Nisan 23rd when Peter comes to the sepulcher. The guards quickly bring word to the priests who seek for Joseph in the holding cell knowing that he was the last person working in the tomb but he is not revealed until about 40 days later.
* This narrative does not suit a Friday to Sunday chronology too well.
The sign of Jonah also holds little merit if the missing Joseph was with Jesus at a time on the weekly sabbath before a Sunday resurrection.

DEATH OF MESSIAH ON WEDNESDAY NISSAN 14 NEW
by: Georges

To me it looks as if Yahushuah Ha-Mashiach ate a Passover meal with His disciples on Nissan 14 (Tuesday evening). He was betrayed and arrested during the night and brought to the High Priest on Nissan 14. He was nailed to the stake/cross on Passover Day (Wednesday Nissan 14)at 9 a.m. and died at 3 p.m. He was buried before 6 p.m. on Wednesday Nissan 14 according to precise Jewish customs. Thus He fulfilled the Feast of Passover as the Passover Lamb. This Nissan 14 Wednesday was the Day of Preparation (Matthew 27:62) before the High Sabbath feast of Unleavened Bread on Thursday Nissan 15. This High Sabbath was in addition to the normal Sabbath day later in the week. Thus Yahushuah fulfilled the feasts of Passover and Unleavened Bread. Yahushuah then rose up on Nissan 17/Saturday evening at 6 p.m. and fulfilled the feast of First Fruits. He probably remained in the tomb for the whole of the Sabbath in the Jewish tradition as He was the Lord of the Sabbath. This version amounts to three full days and three full nights in the grave as in the case of Jonas in the belly of alarge fish/whale(Matthew 12:38-40). A past 6 p.m. resurrection amounts to a Sunday resurrection as Sunday/Ist Day would run from 6 p.m. on Saturday to 6 p.m. on Sunday. There were not witnesses when He arose and it could thus be anytime from past 6 p.m. on the Saturday to the next day. However this would amount to another night (i.e 4 nights) if he arose on Sunday a.m. By resurrecting on Nissan 17/Saturday evening at 6 p.m. it amounts to 3 full days and three full nights in the grave up to that point.

Now all this looks correct as far as 3 full nights and days in the grave (i.e. 72 hours) but is it correct as far as other scripture variations? So Yahushuah died in the middle of the week on Nissan 14. He died in the middle of the 70th week of Daniel. He died in the middle and between two thieves. He is also in the middle between us and the Father Yahuweh! And thus we haggle with this one with full days and part days combinations to do justice to the cause. My choice of version as above is not infallible as neither I or any other were witnesses when He arose! I thought that 3 full days and three full nights are adamant and perhaps they are or not. I rest my case here!

Not true allegations
by: Gerhard Ebersöhn

…1. There were no “possible hidden scenes”

…2. There was no “rash burial” but the meticulously “ETHICAL” John 19:40b BURIAL Joseph had undertaken from beginning of the Sixth Day Mark 15:42 Matthew 27:57 John 19:31,38 Luke 23:50 UNTIL Luke 23:54-56a John 19:42.

…3. There were more than “one piece linen cloth” John 20:6

…4. It was not “After the high sabbath (John 19:31)”; it was “THAT DAY OF great day sabbath-OF” passover

…5. It was not “Nisan 21st”; it was ‘Nisan’ 15

…6. It was not “the high sabbath (John 19:31) of Thursday”; it was “THAT DAY OF great day sabbath-OF” passover “SINCE IT WAS The Preparation” “WHICH IS The Fore-Sabbath”, i.e., ‘Friday’

…7. “Joseph” does not “return… to the tomb with Pilate's permission on the preparation (secular) day of Friday”, “After the high sabbath (John 19:31)”; he BEGINS his whole undertaking “when already it was evening” in the NIGHT “after these things” of the Jews’ request that the bodies be removed.

…8. “the preparation … day of Friday” was no “secular” day; it was “THAT DAY OF great day sabbath-OF” passover “SINCE IT WAS The Preparation” “WHICH IS The Fore-Sabbath”, i.e., ‘Friday’.

…9. It was not “Nisan 22nd”; it was ‘Nisan’ 15 BEGINNING.

…10. Joseph did not “wrap… the body with aromatic spices under a guarded watch”. The guard was only requested and stationed “on the morning after the Jews’ preparations / Preparation Day”, i.e., on the Sabbath (Seventh Day) “morning”.

…11. Joseph closed the grave and finished the burial and went home and the women also, indeed “well before the weekly Sabbath”, in fact three hours “because the Jews’ preparations”-time had begun, “mid-afternoon while the Sabbath approached”.

Yours is the classic example of arbitrary mal-application of the Scriptures.
