Dr. Mike Licona gives a succinct explanation to support his belief of when the crucifixion happened. What day was it? Does he think the Last Supper was a Passover meal? Some may not agree with his interpretation, but what we do know is that after the Last Supper, Jesus was crucified. Check out Dr. Licona’s view and see if you agree!

    No it's not a figure of speech. It was a literal three days. We have to go back to Jewish understanding of days. Day begins at evening. So Thursday evening to Friday evening is day 1, Friday evening to Saturday evening, day 2 and Saturday evening to Sunday morning is still day 3. Everything in the Bible has meaning.

    Mark 14:12 NIV:
    The Last Supper
    12 On the first day of the Festival of Unleavened Bread, when it was customary to sacrifice the Passover lamb, Jesus' disciples asked him, "Where do you want us to go and make preparations for you to eat the Passover?"

    The Question: "Was Jesus crucified the day before or the day after the Passover meal?"

    1: All four Gospels state and agree that Jesus was crucified (and died) on the "Preparation Day" (the day before the Sabbath).

    Matthew 27:57 (NIV):
    As evening approached, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who had himself become a disciple of Jesus.

    (Although Matthew doesn't say the word "Sabbath" or "the day before the Sabbath," we can align it with Mark 15:42).

    Mark 15:42-43 (NIV):
    42 It was Preparation Day (that is, the day before the Sabbath). So as evening approached, 43 Joseph of Arimathea, a prominent member of the Council, who was himself waiting for the kingdom of God, went boldly to Pilate and asked for Jesus' body.

    (Both Matthew and Mark say the following: "As evening approached," and spoke of Joseph of Arimathea).

    Luke 23:54 (NIV):
    54 It was Preparation Day, and the Sabbath was about to begin.

    John 19:31 (NIV):
    31 Now it was the day of Preparation, and the next day was to be a special Sabbath. Because the Jewish leaders did not want the bodies left on the crosses during the Sabbath, they asked Pilate to have the legs broken and the bodies taken down.

    2: John 19:14-
    John 19:14 (NIV):
    14 It was the day of Preparation of the Passover; it was about noon. "Here is your king," Pilate said to the Jews.
    (Or" "The sixth hour.")
    John based his calculations on Roman time, while Matthew, Mark, and Luke based theirs on Jewish time.

    3: The Passover always occurred on the "14th Day of Nisan."

    4: Nisan is the first month of the Jewish year/calendar.
    (Leviticus 23:5 confirms this).
    Lev. 23:5 NIV:
    5 The Lord’s Passover begins at twilight on the fourteenth day of the first month.

    5: At sundown: when a new Jewish day began.
    Not like ours.

    6: So, once the Sun went down- "the 13th day" became the "14th day."

    7: For the Passover:
    On the day after the Passover (the 15th day), the "Seven Day Feast of the Unleavened Bread" began.

    8: On the first day of the "Seven Day Feast of the Unleavened Bread," was a "special Sabbath day."
    (Leviticus 23:6 confirms this).
    Lev. 23:6 NIV:
    6 On the fifteenth day of that month the Lord’s Festival of Unleavened Bread begins; for seven days you must eat bread made without yeast.

    9: As the 4 Gospels tell us, Jesus was crucified on the Passover Day. (The 14th day of Nisan).

    10: Whenever "The Passover" and "The Feast of the Unleavened Bread" fell close together to one another, they were considered one feast.

    11: So: this would make it-
    "A 1-day Passover,"
    followed by:
    "A 7-day Unleavened Bread feast."
    This 8 day festival was also referred to as the Passover.
    See: Luke 22:1, John 19:14, and Acts 12:3-4.
    Luke 22:1 NIV:
    22 Now the Festival of Unleavened Bread, called the Passover, was approaching,

    John 19:14 NIV:
    14 It was the day of Preparation of the Passover; it was about noon.
    “Here is your king,” Pilate said to the Jews.

    Acts 12:3-4 NIV:
    3 When he saw that this met with approval among the Jews, he proceeded to seize Peter also. This happened during the Festival of Unleavened Bread.4 After arresting him, he put him in prison, handing him over to be guarded by four squads of four soldiers each. Herod intended to bring him out for public trial after the Passover.

    12: So: in John 19:14, when he says "it was the day of preparation for the Passover," he wasn't talking about the normal, day 14 Passover (and the day that Jesus was crucified), but the "Seven Day Feast of the Unleavened Bread" (which began on day 15)- since it was called "The Passover" (all-together).

    13: Read Ezekiel 45:21.
    21 “‘In the first month on the fourteenth day you are to observe the Passover, a festival lasting seven days, during which you shall eat bread made without yeast.

    14: Verses that show "The Unleavened Bread" can reference an entire Passover season:
    Matthew 26:17
    Mark 14:1
    Mark 14:12
    and
    Luke 22:1-7.

    15: Since Jesus knew what was about to happen, He ate his Passover meal early on the 14th day.
    (And since a new day in Jewish terms began at sunset, once the sun went down on the 13th day, it became the 14th day).

    16: So, after the sunset on the 13th day (and it became the 14th day), Jesus and his followers ate their (Passover) meal.

    17: The following morning after their Passover meal, is when all of the events transpired.

    18: John 18:28- this was not the Passover Lab, but a separate meal.
    (The Passover lamb meal takes place in John 13- especially take a look at John 13:2).

    John 18:28 NIV:
    28 Then the Jewish leaders took Jesus from Caiaphas to the palace of the Roman governor. By now it was early morning, and to avoid ceremonial uncleanness they did not enter the palace, because they wanted to be able to eat the Passover.

    John 13:2 NIV:
    2 The evening meal was in progress, and the devil had already prompted Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot, to betray Jesus.

    This meal:
    The verse:
    John 18:28 NIV:
    Jesus Before Pilate
    28 Then the Jewish leaders took Jesus from Caiaphas to the palace of the Roman governor. By now it was early morning, and to avoid ceremonial uncleanness they did not enter the palace, because they wanted to be able to eat the Passover.

    "πασχα" can also mean other sacrifices, which were offered (during the paschal solemnity).
    It refers to the "Feast" that follows the sacrifice of the lamb.
    Passover is more than just 1 thing.
    This was a reference to the "Chagigah" (the feast on the 15th day) (see Deut. 16:2).

    Read 2 Chronicles 30:22.
    2 Chronicles 30:22 NIV:
    22 Hezekiah spoke encouragingly to all the Levites, who showed good understanding of the service of the Lord. For the seven days they ate their assigned portion and offered fellowship offerings and praised the Lord, the God of their ancestors.

    There are eight other examples in John, where "πασχα" ("pascha") means "feast" (and not supper).

    John 13:2 was the "lamb" (regular Passover Meal).

    Also:
    Remember, unlike Matthew, John wrote to a Roman/Gentile audience, and was different than the Synoptic Gospels in almost every way.
    He even used Roman time, while the other three Gospels used Jewish time.

    If this is the calibre of our biblical scholars these days then no wonder Christianity is in decline.

    Of course Christ died at passover, because the passover symbolised his blood being shed for us. The three days/nights is Hebrew reckoning, where day is counted even if it is part of a day, and it starts on day 1, not day 0. Thus Friday, Sabbath, Sunday is your 3 days and Sunday morning is the on the third day. Plus, the day begins in the evening, not in the morning, so any time after sunset Saturday the the resurrection could have occurred.

    And it's impossible to claim that the passover began on whatever day in AD 30 (the year of the crucifixion) because it depends on the actual sighting of the moon, but if you look at the calculations it is plausible that the passover that year was on Friday.

    What a bunch of Replacement Theology bull. It is obviously the Passover meal. In scripture God's calendar is lunar and the day starts in the evening not the morning. So Passover eve would be the day time before the evening which begins the day of Passover. Jesus was crucified on Passover and raised on first fruits.

    The gospels say Jesus was crucified on two different days

    What difference does it make what day or time he was crucified
    I think it’s fair to say he was in fact crucified, him and plenty others.
    But
    Did he stay dead ?

    We can't add to what Scripture says… What "interpreting" means? It is the inspired word of God, and we have to TRUST his word and let The Holy Spirit WHO LIVES in every Christ's Children, TELL and not "interpret" with the flesh what Scripture says.
    "Matthew 26:1-2,16-19
    [1]Now it came to pass, when Jesus had finished all these sayings, that He said to His disciples,
    [2]“You know that after two days is the Passover, and the Son of Man will be delivered up to be crucified.”
    [16]So from that time he sought opportunity to betray Him. Jesus Celebrates Passover with His Disciples
    [17]Now on the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying to Him, “Where do You want us to prepare for You to eat the Passover?”
    [18]And He said, “Go into the city to a certain man, and say to him, ‘The Teacher says, “My time is at hand; I will keep the Passover at your house with My disciples.” ’ ”
    [19]So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them; and they prepared the Passover."

    At that time of year in history, Roman roads, pilgrimage and harvest, it would of been a busy cultural time of year full of events. It just adds up that it could have similarities like our Christmas season. I've had dinner's that happen on the 24th and then a second one on the 25th. Reading the Bible is like trying to make sense of a theological dig site.

    John 12:1-12 "Jesus, therefore, six days before Passover, came to Bethany where Lazarus was, whom Jesus has raised from the dead.
    V.12 "The next day He arrived in Jerusalem…"
    The text says it would be six days before Passover. The question becomes what day did Yeshua arrive in Bethany. If we say it was Saturday to make the Friday crucifixion work, we're presupposing Yeshua traveled on Saturday or a Sabbath Day. He would NOT have done this! He would NOT have traveled from one place on a Sabbath Day to another place. That would have violated Leviticus 23:3 "Six days shall work be done, but on the 7th day is a Sabbath of solemn rest, a holy convocation. You shall do no work. It is a Sabbath to your LORD in all your dwelling places."
    So He had to arrive in Bethany on Friday. Let's count the six days 'til Passover from Friday. He arrived in Bethany on Friday and RESTED on Saturday.
    FRIDAY – Six Days before High Holy Sabbath
    SATURDAY – Five Days
    SUNDAY – Four Days
    MONDAY – three Days
    TUESDAY – Two Days
    WEDNESDAY – One Day
    THURSDAY – High Holy Sabbath Day and the Day Yeshua was crucified.

    The 3rd day. Well the bible says a day to the Lord is a 1000 years to us. Its been 2022 years since Christ died and rose from the dead. That should be 2 days to the Lord. Which may mean around year 3000, which is the 3rd day to the Lord, the Lord may return to us. Just adding a thought.

    Yes because the week Yeshua there was crucified was a "High Holy" Sabbath – John 19:31 This was a once per year Sabbath when every Jew had to be present. It began at sundown on Wednesday. But also, Yeshua specifically said He would be in the earth for three days and three nights. If He was crucified on Friday morning, there is a night problem. He ate Passover on Wednesday early evening. He was tried Wednesday night into the wee hours of Thursday morning. He was crucified Thursday morning – DAY ONE. Thursday Night – NIGHT ONE; Friday – DAY TWO Friday night – NIGHT TWO Saturday DAY THREE Saturday Night – Night three. He arose Sunday morning at that was also the day Jews were permitted to leave if they lived outside of Judea.

    I believe it could easily have been a Wednesday, or any other day of the week. John makes a parenthetical statement in 19:31, (for that Sabbath was a high day). If it were simply the weekly sabbath there would have been no reason for the clarification, but since the Passover and other high days are treated as sabbaths, I believe he offers the statement so that future readers can make the distinction.

    Mike Winger has an excellent video on how Christ fulfills Passover!

    A day is from sunset to sunset.
    Passover was Tuesday night to Wednesday night. The “last supper” was the Passover meal. He was killed on Passover day (Because Christ IS our Passover). He had to be placed in the tomb before the ANNUAL Sabbath called the first “Day of Unleavened Bread” which began that Wednesday Night, after he was buried. He was Resurrected at the end of the weekly Sabbath (Saturday). The two Mary’s found his empty tomb the following morning. (Sunday). Three Days and Three Nights is very specific.

    Hello Atheists, unbelievers and skeptics. I'm going to address a few misconceptions and lies about God's Character and His Word. The Bible doesn't support chattel slavery or anything else Immoral. Ok so Atheists and unbelievers say God is either Immoral, incompetent or not responsible so let's see what The Scriptures actually say. God revealed himself and created a nation in a real, historical context. It was set in a world with a slave-based economy, with city states often at war with each other, with polygamous marriages to ensure the continuation of family lines. The laws of the Old Testament regulate this behaviour. Slaves are to be treated humanely (Exodus 21:11). They are given rights and not seen as mere possessions. Hebrew slaves were able to buy their own freedom. Human trafficking is condemned (Exodus 21:16). In contrast to the law code of Babylon, Old Testament Israel was a light to the nations. The Old Testament law and narratives do not stand alone. Jesus is now the best example of what we read. So the moral teaching of the Bible cannot be summarised by a quote taken out of context from the Old Testament to demonize God and His Word. Slavery was permitted in Old Testament law but it was regulated by God giving the Israelites instructions on how to fairly and humanely treat their slaves (it was like indentured servitude where someone could work for you if they owed debts or needed income not cruel like chattel slavery). God allowed the people of Israel to own slaves since they themselves has already experienced over 400 years of generations of Egyptian slavery and knew how inhumane it was to be beaten, overworked and taxed so God set them apart from other nations and cultures around them by giving them a fair way to treat their slaves since slavery had already existed in the world but it doesn't mean God condoned it just used it for His Will to bring Good And in the light of the whole scriptural teaching, we find the reasons for its ultimate abolition (Ephesians 6:9; Colossians 4:1-3; Philemon 15-16 and Galatians 3:28). The Word of God provided the moral standard against slavery in the Roman Empire and against the slave trade in the New World.
    But what of genocide or holy war in the book of Joshua? Several things could be pointed out. The use of warfare in the ancient world did not always mean literal total destruction, even when events are described in such terms. Furthermore, the book of Joshua does not describe a genocide. It is not a race who are being wiped out, as in genocide, but a religious practice which was often appalling and degrading. Those who repent (like Rahab from Jericho or Ruth) are not destroyed but become part of Israel. It is not the racial group that is in view but their "detestable practices".
    However, after all is said, we must still acknowledge that God brought judgment on the nations of Canaan. It is not our place as believers isn't to sugar-coat the Bible. For some skeptics, this is enough to make God a moral monster. But the fact is that Jesus continued to affirm that God is a Judge who will bring a future judgment on all peoples and all nations. God’s judgment will be just. The list of Old Testament stories rejected by critics often leads to a similar dismissal of the New Testament teaching of Jesus on the existence of hell.
    After all, what was the Flood of Genesis or the conquest of Joshua if not a glimpse of future judgment? Hell does not demonstrate cruelty on God’s part, but it does demonstrate His Holiness and our moral accountability. Perhaps this is the real reason many people rail against the God of the Bible? It is not that they think He is a moral monster, but that they are afraid He is a moral Judge, and that has implications for our behaviour now. God is an Eternal Almighty Spirit Being and we as His creatures have Eternal souls and spirits so the punishment for our sins against Him must therefore also be Eternal but so must the reward for righteousness that's why He sent His Son Jesus to live a perfectly righteous and sinless Life (which none of us could ever possibly expect to do) suffer the humiliating and torturous death of crucifixion to shed His Own Blood willingly so that all who willingly accept His gift of salvation by grace through faith in Him will be saved and given Eternal life because that's what God wants is for us to willingly accept His gift of salvation and choose life. Exodus 21:20-21 literally speaks about capital punishment befalling anyone who mistreats their slaves so yes people are taking Scripture out of context to demonize God who literally promises that slaves who are mistreated under someone else's authority is to be avenged. When we hear the word “slavery” we think of innocent human beings, kept prisoner for life, having no rights under law and so reduced to animals. This is clearly immoral because it is unjust: the slave has done nothing to deserve the treatment.
    The situation described as “slavery” in the Bible was nothing like this. It is more accurately described as one of indentured servitude. Many “slaves” were indentured servants, working for a term of years

    Some other “slaves” were prisoners. There were no prisons. Prisoners had to work to live like everyone else. Some had life sentences. Some served a term and were released.
    People didn't beat their good slaves but treated them well and protected their assets thus.

    But no matter how rebellious a slave was, you couldn't just beat them to death. And if you knocked out their tooth or damaged their eye then you had to set them free. (Exodus 21:26). God wasn't using what other nations did because He wanted to set His Chosen People of Israel apart from the cruel, inhumane and unjust systems other cultures had so He gave them a fair way to treat their slaves and servants.
    There is a lot of ignorance on this topic which is understandable given the age we live in but it's not the nefarious set up we think of when we think of modern slavery.

    The most important is that He was crucified and He did rise again…. so hopefully we don’t go extreme in arguing over this type of stuff…

    but just to be clear (as is stated in other comments) it was the Passover meal. Matthew 26:17-20 specifically states it by Jesus Himself as does Luke 22:8, 11, 13, 15….. again by Jesus not his disciples…. To imply it’s not the Passover meal would imply Jesus is either lying or “meant something different”… however, a more accurate question would be…. Was the Passover meal they had actually ON the day of Passover….. Leviticus 23 may help us understand that a bit better.

    Jesus was killed on passover (our sacrifice) and the next day was a high day sabbath and rose on the weekly sabbath. There were 2 sabbaths that week. That's why scripture has sabbath's in plural.

    Yes it does He was crucified around 32 A.D. when Pontius Pilate was the Roman Procurator. Historians both Christian, Atheist and non Christian even agree on the validity on when The Gospels were written and that The Apostles of Christ who walked and lived among Him really existed. This has nothing to do with the video but please listen if you want to otherwise leave it alone and ignore it. Hello my name is Justin and I'm a fellow Christian and Apologist but I'm also a college student. I'm not a closed minded Theist as I have nothing against Atheists or unbelievers as I speak to them often to understand their reasons for unbelief but we as Christians are convinced of God's Existence due to many real factors). I'm not trying to convert anyone or convince anyone to become Christians as that's The Holy Spirit's job to help people believe but only explain why I believe in Jesus Christ. There's actually evidence of God's Existence in Christianity. First of all there's proof that Jesus of Nazareth existed in history since the writings of Tacitus, Josephus Flavius, Pliny the younger and other historical documents prove that He was living two thousand years ago that even scholars both religious and Atheists agree with historically speaking but not that He's The Divine Son of God because obviously they don't.

    I'm going to give you historical and archeological evidence for God's Existence as The Scriptures have prophecies that predate the events recorded in them by several millennia including Matthew, Hosea and Zechariah which prophesy accurately of the people of Israel becoming a nation again after over 1900 years of being scattered around the nations since the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem in 70 A.D. spoken of by Christ in Matthew 23:29-24:3 and returning to their homeland after The Holocaust with Jerusalem as their capital in 1948 exactly as Jesus The Christ said. The prophets including Daniel spoke of the time where several world empires would arise and fall including the Babylonian kingdom, Medes and Persians, Roman Empire, and Saladin and the Muslims which went in consecutive order for the past few millennia. The people of Israel becoming a nation after The Holocaust in 1948 (ironically the melting point of gold as God compares Israel to gold that's tested in fire in Zechariah 13:8 and Jeremiah 16:15) exactly how Jesus The Christ said would happen since God us everything to come in The Scriptures and not just because people were working towards as Atheists claim which are impossible for any regular man to predict.

    Just before anyone says Christianity is a white man's religion made to oppress blacks during slavery you obviously aren't aware that the first Christians were Jews in The Middle East and that Christianity just like any religion can be used by evil and corrupt people to oppress others but you forget that the first Abolitionists/Civil Rights activists were Christians who sought to abolish slavery, racism, segregation, injustice and prejudice throughout American history. Jesus The Christ loves you enough not to give you what we all deserve which is God's Wrath by His Own Blood. Charles Darwin didn't originally come up with The Theory of Evolution over 200 years ago as it is mentioned in the writings of Ancient Greeks who believed in Demons that gave knowledge to philosophers.
    Evolution makes no sense when nothing has evolved after thousands of years of human history and supposedly the first creature came from primordial sludge several millions of years

    ago funny how they won't believe that God an Eternal Almighty Spirit Being created us from the Earth) which came from a supermassive expansion of matter at high temperature that inexplicably created everything in the known universe that supposedly came from nothing billions of years ago. How did the organs evolve before there were bones, skin, substance and how did any creatures see before eyes evolved? I've studied evolution and abiogenesis in the past and read Darwin's " Origin of The Species" I've studied evolution and abiogenesis in the past and read Darwin's " Origin of The Species" and I'm not convinced of but not macro or micro Evolution because there's no evidence of it nor clear observable examples of it where living creatures evolve into other kinds of species plus the fact that fossils don't show evidence of evolution and genetic entropy rules out evolution. The question begs how did two genders evolve from a common ancestor with a perfectly hospitable and sustainable environment with breathable oxygen and resources to survive on inexplicably? Atheists have the burden of proof to explain how everything came to be and why our existence is possible without the Existence of God from an godless perspective just as Christians have to provide evidence of God's Existence and the validity of His Word.

    Evolution requires life to already exist in order to take any effect in living organisms so it doesn't account for the existence of Life and reality. Also evolution is impossible because it goes against The Law of entropy and the second Law of thermodynamics because evolution makes things better whereas nothing continues to get better but decays and turns to absolute destruction in the end. Mark Ridley an Evolutionist said "No evolutionist whether gradualist or punctuationist uses the fossil record as evidence in favor of The Theory of Darwinian Evolution as opposed to special Creation". God's Existence is made perfectly known and observable in the universe as demonstrated in His Handiwork in the intelligently designed manner that Creation was made, human consciences and consciousness historical and archaeological evidence of God's Word being valid history, fulfillment of Bible Prophecies God in His Holiness and Righteousness could give us what we deserve in Hell for our since but He's merciful to give us free will to choose to accept or reject His gift of salvation by grace through faith in His Son Jesus. I don't mean this is any condescending manner but if you'd like to discuss The Scriptures with me or have me listen to your view on anything my instagram account is Savage Christian Kombatant.

    Some things can just be over analyzed. Look to how the apostles gave the gospel. Very simple and matter of fact. Jesus Christ, the Son of God was born of a virgin, sent by the Father to bear the sins of the world on Himself, was crucified, died and rose again, that all who will repent and believe will be saved by grace through faith in Him.
    Anyone can receive and understand that. I think the message gets lost in splitting hairs over the details.

    So, partial day on Friday, couple hours "maybe" counts as a day? week, but OK.
    All day Saturday? Got it.
    Resurrected sometime between sunset Saturday and "just" after sunrise Sunday? Less than an hour? The Sabbath ended at Sunrise. So they headed to the tomb at sunrise.
    How do you get even 3 partial days and 3 partial nights? Forget, 3 days and 3 nights like Jonah! If He was killed on Wednesday or even Thursday OK. Friday? I aint buyin it!
    Riddle me this: Why was Mary, Mary, and Salome going to the tomb?
    It was covered with a stone, when?!
    How were they going to anoint Him?

    It happened, Christ rose, is risen, why do we as humans have to over rationalize everything?

    People may say “in a minute” as a figure of speech, but no one says “in three minutes” as a figure of speech. Also, how can one argue the Last Supper wasn’t a Passover Seder? Jesus says in Luke 22:15 “I have desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer.” Jews are permitted to eat the Passover Seder on the day of preparation as Jesus did with His disciples. Christians should understand that the cup in the Eucharist is the 3rd cup of the Passover Seder which celebrates Jesus redemption of believers. As for secular Dave, it was most definitely intentional by God that Jesus die on the pass over. The Pharisees wanted to avoid killing Jesus and pass over because of the possible public ramifications.

    I thought Jesus fulfilled Old Testament prophecy – there are several times in the 4 Gospels where things didn't match or line up the same, I feel the point is the total sum of the Word is true

    Read your Bible. The triumphant entry. Finding the upper room to have the Passover meal. It is all there.

    yes – however scripture says people went to the tomb to lay herbs & perfume there & the stone was moved so the tomb was open – so it wasn't weeks or months later that he LORD God raised Jesus & also time is irrelevant to God/Jesus who is beyond time

    It's a very weak argument when you have to say 3 days and 3 nights means "just a minute". It is more threatening to the credibility of the sign Christ presents if it is not 3 days. It is easy to show there were 2 Sabbaths on crucifixion week without muddling up Christ's words to cram 3 days into 1.5 days. Why make a stand on crucifixion Friday when it puts into question Yashua's words and you have to do some fancy foot work to cover it over. The Good Friday idea came from people who had no understanding of the Hebrew Passover calendar.

    Rose again on the third day. What part of that makes it a figure of speech?

    It hardly matters what day it was on. The celebration of the birth of Christ was moved by around 3 months and no one seems to care.
    Would the bible have been more believable if the Last Supper happened AFTER Jesus rose from the Crucifixion? If there were Believers and Non-Believers in the room who saw him transform into a spirit and rise through the roof of the building to Ascend?
    Or is it still just a poorly written fable, in an old book?

    Jesus was clear how long a day was, 12 hours, therfore and night would be the other 12 hours.. John 11:9

    He would be a literal 3 days and 2 nights in the tomb.

    Friday day before sunset is a day, then Saturday day, then rose Sunday day.. There are two nights because Sunday night is not included.

    The gospel of John is connected to Revelation 12.

    After the TRUTH is revealed to the world and Satan is cast down on the earth, PASSOVER is done and the people who missed it (Revelation 11:18), have a second passover acceptance into the kingdom if they don't take the MARK. You see these people entering the kingdom in Revelation 15:2-4

    Get out of churchianity and Lord God is going to open the scriptures to you.
    REST in scriptures.
