*Time has been set back one year to adjust for House of Yudah's membership into the UN in 1949 CE. Originally I had the time set at 1948 CE when they became a nation, but I see now that they did not put themselves under the Babylonian king’s thumb until 1949 CE. In Yirmiyah 25:12 and Daniy'Yah 9:2, YaHVeH has established a 70 year time line for the king of Babylon to be destroyed.
1 Corinthians: 13:12: For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
Scripture is taken from KJV and other translations and edited to remove blasphemous names (Rev. 17:3), words and titles and to give a more Iybriy/Hebrew rooted understanding; edited also because the "Mother of Harlots" has inserted these names to cover up the names of YaHVeH/יהוה and HIS Ben Yahvshua/יהושׁוּע, and to counterfeit a Babylonian Greco-Roman "god", "lord" "Jesus" "Christ"…etc. and promote its demonic idolatrous pagan customs and "holidays" by replacing YaHVeH's Sabbaths (Dan. 7:25).
YaHVeH's annual Sabbaths/Appointed Times map out the plan of our FATHER/ABBIY. They are wonderful and they don't revolve around materialism/economy/buying and selling or fertility/sexual rites:
Shemoth/Exodus: 31:13: Speak you also to the children of Yisrael, saying, Truly MY Sabbaths you all shall keep: for it is a sign between you and ME throughout your generations; that you all know that I am YaHVeH that does purify/kadash you.
Notice in verse 13 the Sabbaths are not called "Jewish", YaHVeH calls them HIS Sabbaths:
1) Pesach/Passover is not a Sabbath but an observance (memorial) of Yahshua Mashiyach's death for our sins. You should only par take in this ceremony if you have been immersed (submerged completely under water and hands laid on by another believer). 1) Pesach = Yahshua is the Lamb of YaHVeH (Yahn 1:29; Shemoth 12; V'yakra/Lev.23:5; Luke 22:19-20; I Cor. 5:7). His blood covers our sins.
There are occasions that ABBIY gives HIS set apart Ruach before you are immersed:
Acts: 10:44: While Kepha yet spoke these words, the Kodesh Ruach fell on all them which heard the Word. Acts: 10:45: And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Kepha, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Kodesh Ruach. Acts: 10:46: For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify YaHVeH. Then answered Kepha, Acts: 10:47: Can any man forbid water, that these should not be immersed, which have received the Kodesh Ruach as well as we? Acts: 10:48: And he commanded them to be immersed in the name of YaHVeH. Then they asked him to stay certain days.
YaHVeH first established Pesach for HIS people to keep around 3,657 years ago (This is counting from the exodus from Mitsrayim/Egypt/3340 - 6997* FCA See time line). If you turn to Shemoth/Exodus 12 you will fine the seasonal time frame this memorial was (and is) observed. It was (is) to be kept in the month/Chodesh the "Jew’s"/Yudiym call "Nissan"/Abib, which is the 1st Chodesh. This is the Chodesh that begins the New Year. This period of time usually coincides in the Babylonian 3rd or 4th Month on the Babylonian/Catholic in the west-Orthodox in the east Gregorian/Pagan/Christian calendar.
What is the purpose in the observance of Pesach? There is a great and wonderful reason for this season and without it we would be eternally doomed! It was through the blood of the slaughtered lamb, smeared on the door post that the children of Yisrael were delivered from the death malak. It was only the house that had the blood smeared over the door of their house that the blood delivered from the death curse. The Egyptians/Mitsriy did not have this oth/sign of protection because the blood of the lamb did not cover the door of their dwellings. What does this mean? What is the lesson from this? Or should I say what is the schoolmaster (representation) of this Old Covenant story (Galatians 3: 24)?
Why did YaHVeH choose a lamb to be slaughtered? What are the characteristics of a lamb?
This is how Webster’s Ninth Colligate Dictionary defines lamb:
I think from this description you can receive the general idea the characteristics of a lamb. They were helpless animals, innocent and could not fight back. Lambs are easy prey for the predator.
There is something we need to think about in the Pesach story. The death malak would kill the first born of all the families of Egypt, but what if the blood was not smeared on the door post of the Yisraeliy homes, would it be right to assume that the first born of the Yisraeliy would die also?
Shemoth: 12:13: And the blood shall be to you for a oth/sign/token on the houses where you all are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be on you to destroy you, when I hit the land of Egypt.
Yahvchanan/Yahn/Yohn: 3:14: And as Moses/Moshe lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Ben of Adam be lifted up: Yahn: 3:15: That whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. Yahn: 3:16: For YaHVeH so loved the world, that HE gave HIS only begotten Ben, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. Yahn: 3:17: For YaHVeH sent not His Ben into the world to condemn/sentence/krino/shaphat the world; but that the world through Him might be saved/yasha. Yohn: 3:18: He that believes on Him is not sentenced: but he that believes not is sentenced already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Ben of YaHVeH.
From this verse we can see that it was a must that the blood of the lamb be on the door post. If YaHVeH did not see the blood HE would not Passover that house. The house represented our heart (mind) and the door post represented the entrance to our heart. It is the first thought that should be on our minds at all times.
Why was only the firstborn affected? There must be a schoolmaster in this, but what is it? The firstborn has to be related to the first fruits. We know that Yahshua is the first fruits of many:
1 Corinthians: 15:20: But now is Mashiyach risen from the dead, and become the first fruits of them that slept.
1 Corinthians: 15:23: But every man in his own order: Mashiyach the first fruits; afterward they that are Mashiyach's at His coming.
The first born of the Egyptians was the sacrifice/offering that freed the Yisraeliy's from the bondage that they were in. The Yisraeliy had the blood of the lamb that covered them even though they were sinners. We see the analogy of the first born being offered in Genesis/B'reshiyth when Abraham had to offer his first-born ben Isaac/Yitschak born from Sarah:
B'reshiyth/Genesis: 22:2: And HE said, Take now your ben, your only ben Isaac/Yitschak, whom you love, and go into the land of Mo-riy'Yah/seen of Yah; and offer him there for a burnt offering on one of the mountains which I will tell you of.
Yahn: 3:16: For YaHVeH so loved the world, that HE gave HIS only begotten Ben, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Pesach is a solemn time for us as believers. It is a time of great importance and careful self-examination. Shaul mentioned this in I Corinthians 11: 23-29:
1 Corinthians: 11:23: For I have received of the Rabbi/Iyshiy that which also I delivered to you, That the Rabbi/Iyshiy Yahshua the same night in which He was betrayed took bread: 24. And when He had given thanks, He brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is My body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of Me. 25. After the same manner also He took the cup, when He had supped, saying, this cup is the New Covenant in My blood: this do you all, as often as you all drink it, in remembrance of Me. 26. For as often as you all eat this bread, and drink this cup, you all do proclaim the Rabbi's death till He come. 27. That's why whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Rabbi, unworthily, shall be guilty of the Body and Blood of the Rabbi. 28. But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. 29. For he that eats and drinks unworthily, eats and drinks judgment/krima/rasha to himself, not discerning the Rabbi's body.
Notice by taking part in this memorial you are proclaiming Yahshua the Mashiyach's death until He returns, not His resurrection. It just the opposite of what "Christianity" teaches and goes against what Yahshua the Mashiyach commanded us to do, which means "Christianity" is anti-Messiyah!
The somberness of this memorial dictates that only those who have committed themselves to Yahshua through immersion and the laying on of hands to receive YaHVeH’s set apart Ruach should partake in this service. We find the restriction of those who are only allowed to participate in this occasion in Shemoth/Exodus:
Shemoth: 12:43: And YaHVeH said to Moshe and Aharon, This is the ordinance of the Pesach: There shall no stranger eat of it: 44. But every man's servant that is bought for money, when you have circumcised him, then shall he eat of it. 45. A foreigner and a hired servant shall not eat of it.
We are Mashiyach’s servants He has purchased us with His blood. Through His offering our hearts have been circumcised so we can receive His Commandments (I Corinthians 6:19-20; 7:22-23; Acts 20:24,28; Yirmi'Yah/Jeremiah. 4:4; Romans 4: 8-13; I Corinthians 7:18-19; Iybriyiym/Hebrews 8:10):
1 Corinthians: 6:19: What? Know you all not that your body is the temple/heykal of the set apart Ruach which is in you, which you all have of YaHVeH, and you all are not your own? 20. For you all are bought with a price: therefore magnify/doxazo/gadal YaHVeH in your body, and in your ruach, which are YaHVeH's.
1 Corinthians: 7:22: For he that is called in the Rabbi, being a servant, is the Rabbi's freeman: likewise also he that is called, being free, is Mashiyach's servant. 23. You all are bought with a price; be not you all the servants of men.
Acts: 20:24: But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear to myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Rabbi Yahshua, to testify the glad tidings of the favor of YaHVeH.
Acts: 20:28: Take heed therefore to yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Kodesh Ruach has made you overseers, to feed the ekklesia/called out of YaHVeH, which He has purchased with His own blood.
Romans: 4:8: Prospered is the man to whom YaHVeH will not impute sin. 9. Comes this prosperity then on the circumcision only, or on the uncircumcision also? For we say that belief was reckoned to Abraham for righteousness. 10. How was it then reckoned? When he was in circumcision, or in uncircumcision? Not in circumcision, but in uncircumcision. 11. And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the belief which he had yet being uncircumcised: that he might be the ab/father of all them that believe, though they be not circumcised; that righteousness might be imputed to them also: 12. And the ab of circumcision to them who are not of the circumcision only, but who also walk in the steps of that belief of our ab Abraham, which he had being yet uncircumcised. 13. For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law/Torah, but through the righteousness of belief.
1 Corinthians: 7:18: Is any man called being circumcised? Let him not become uncircumcised. Is any called in uncircumcision? Let him not be circumcised. 19. Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but the keeping of the commandments of YaHVeH.
Yirmi'Yah: 4:4: Circumcise yourselves to YaHVeH, and take away the foreskins of your heart, all you men of Yahudah and inhabitants of Yahvshalayim: unless MY fury come forth like fire, and burn that none can quench it, because of the evil of your doings.
Iybriyiym/Hebrews: 8:10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Yisrael after those days, says YaHVeH; I will put MY laws/Torah into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a Elohiym, and they shall be to ME a people:
It is clear no one can take part in the Pesach memorial unless he or she has committed himself or herself to Yahshua.
Sense Yahshua is the Pesach lamb we no longer have to kill a lamb for this memorial He is our eternal offering (Yahn 1:29). Did Yahshua institute new symbols for this most somber occasion?
Mattith'Yah/Matthew: 26:26: And as they were eating, Yahshua took bread, and praised it, and brake it, and gave it to the limmudiym/taught ones, and said, Take, eat; this is My Body. 27. And He took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink you all, all of it; 28. For this is My blood of the New Covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
Luke: 22:17: And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, Take this, and divide it among yourselves: 18. For I say to you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of YaHVeH shall come. 19. And He took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave to them, saying, This is My Body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of Me. 20. Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the New Covenant in My blood, which is shed for you.
Yahvchanan: 13:3: Yahshua knowing that ABBIY had given all things into His hands, and that He was come from YaHVeH, and went to YaHVeH; 4. He stood up from supper, and laid aside His garments; and took a towel, and girded Himself. 5. After that He poured water into a basin, and began to wash the limmudiym's feet, and to wipe them with the towel that He was girded with.
12. So after He had washed their feet, and had taken His garments, and was set down again, He said to them, Know you all what I have done to you? 13. You all call Me Master and Rabbi: and you all say well; for so I am. 14. If I then, your Rabbi and Master, have washed your feet; you all also ought to wash one another's feet. 15. For I have given you an example that you all should do as I have done to you.
You can see that the unleavened bread was given to represent Yahshua's sinless body. The wine represents His shed blood to cover our sins. The foot washing given to represent how He served us we are to serve one another.
At what time was Yahshua the Lamb of YaHVeH offered?
All times are estimated. If you see a mistake in my estimation point it out in the Ruach and love Yahshua.
In Shemoth chapter 12 YaHVeH gives the time frame when the lambs were to be slaughtered:
Shemoth: 12:1: And YaHVeH spoke to Moshe and Aharon in the land of Egypt saying, 2. This Chodesh/Month shall be to you the beginning Chodesh: it shall be the first Chodesh of the shaneh/year to you. 3. Speak you all to all the edah/multitude of Yisrael, saying, In the tenth day of this Chodesh they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers/ab, a lamb for a house: 4. And if the household is too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbor next to his house take it according to the number of the people; every man according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb. 5. Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: you all shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats: 6. And you all shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same Chodesh: and the whole assembly of the multitude of Yisrael shall kill it in the evening.
From Easton`s Scriptural Dictionary (edited):
Text: the period following sundown with which the Iybriy/Hebrew day began (B'reshiyth/Gen. 1:5; Mark 13:35). The Iybriyiym reckoned two evenings of each day, as appears from Shemoth 16:12: 30:8; 12:6 (marg.); V'yakra/Lev. 23:5 (marg. R.V., "between the two evenings"). The "first evening" was that period when the sun was verging towards setting, and the "second evening" the moment of actual sunset. The word "evenings" in Yirmiyah/Jer. 5:6 should be "deserts" (marg. R.V.).
From Jameson/Fausset/Brown Commentary Volume I page 310:
As we can see from this commentary that the time frame that Yahshua was hung on the tree was between one and six o’clock pm. He had to be down before the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread began, because it was an annual Sabbath that began at sundown of the 14th of Abib. At sundown the next day begins, which would be the 15th. There had to be time to take Him down from off the stake and prepare His body and lay Him in the tomb before the annual Sabbath began.
Mattith'Yah/Matthew: 26:17: Now the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread the limmudiym came to Yahshua, saying to Him, Where will You that we prepare for You to eat the Pesach? M't: 26:18: And He said, Go into the city to such a man, and say to him, The Rabbi says, My time is at hand; I will keep the Pesach at your house with My limmudiym. M't: 26:19: And the limmudiym did as Yahshua had appointed them; and they made ready the Pesach.
From Mattith'Yah we can see that the Yahudiy had established a tradition of eating a meal when the 14th of Abib began at sundown of the 13th. This had to be a tradition that came about later because if you read Shemoth 12 it was not originally part of the Passover ceremony. So the meal that Yahshua ate with His limmudiym was not the same that took place at the time of the Exodus. The Lamb with bitter herbs and unleavened bread was eaten in haste during the 15th of Abib, which would have begun at sun down of the 14th.
Shemoth/Exodus: 12:6: And you all shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same Chodesh: and the whole assembly of the multitude of Yisrael shall kill it in the evening. Shemoth: 12:7: And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it. Shemoth: 12:8: And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roasted with fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.
If we continue with the information from the above commentary sundown in the season of the Passover was around 6:45 to 7:00 PM standard time (it will very a little from year to year), so the meal that Yahshua ate with the His limmudiym started around 6: 45 or 7 PM at the beginning of the 14th, when the sun went down at the end of the 13th of Abib. Let’s trace the steps of Yahshua during His final hours in the flesh before He was to be offered as the Lamb that takes way the sins of the World (Yahvchanan/Yahn 1:29).
Nissan (Abib/1st new moon/chadash yareach) 13th sundown, which begins the 14th day:
The weekly time frame, which we would be familiar with, would be the night of the 4th day of the week (paganly referred to as "Tuesday" night Gregorian Calendar, remember Babylon begins its day at 12 midnight.). At sun down it would be the beginning of the 4th day of the week ("Wednesday") according to YaHVeH’s calculating of time.
6: 44 PM: Around 6:44 or 7:00 PM Yahshua and His limmudiym begin to eat this traditional Yahudiy meal (Mattith`Yah 26:20). During the time of the meal Yahshua announces that one of His limmudiym will betray Him (Mattith'Yah 26:21). Judas/Yudah is the man (Mattith'Yah 26:25). During the meal Yahshua establishes the new symbols of Pesach. He commands the bread to symbolize His body (Matith'Yah 26:22). He commands the wine to symbolize His blood of the New Covenant (Mattith`Yah 26:27 – 29).
8PM: How long does it take to eat a meal? I would say at the max one hour. The meal would have ended at around 8 PM (Yohn 13:2). At around 8 PM Yahshua washes His limmudiym's feet (Yahn 13:4 – 12). It is not clear but a little confusing to me at what stage "Judas Iscariot" was given the sop so that Satan would enter him (Yahn 13:26-27). It had to be after the meal was over and Yahshua had already washed Judas’ feet. During this time two swords are found and taken (Luke 22:38). They sang a hymn and left the upper room (Mattith'Yah 26:30). Judas is not with them, he goes to the priest/kohen to betray Yahshua (Yahn 13:30-31). Yahshua conversation and prayer in Yahvchanan/Yahn chapters 13 – 17 must have taken place during this time.
9PM: Nine PM the second watch begins. Yahshua and His limmudiym go to the Mount of Olive (Mattith'Yah 26:30; Yahn 18). Yahshua tells His followers they will be scattered and that Kepha (erroneously called "Peter") will deny Him three times (Mattith`Yah 26: 31 – 34) before the cockcrows. Now I have heard that this cock crowing was a slang term. It was a phrase the Yahudiy at that time used for the Roman soldiers that were on watch and would yell out at what hour of the watch they were in. In my Strong’s Concordance in the back it speaks about the Yudiy Calendar. It says the first watch took place between sundown and 9 PM. During this time Yahshua is praying in Gethsemane (Mattith'Yah 26:36). Yahshua ask His limmudiym to watch with Him (Mattith'Yah 26:38 – 46).
10 PM: At around 10PM Judas brings a band of men and officers from the chief kohen and Pharisees (Mattith'Yah 26:47 – 50; Yahn 18: 3) and betrays Yahshua with a kiss. Kepha cuts off the servant of the high kohen right ear with his sword (Mattith'Yah 26:51; Yahn 18:10).
11 PM: Around 11 PM Yahshua appears before Annas/Chananyah first, than Caiaphas/Kayapha the high kohen. Kepha and Yahn/Yahvchanan followed Yahshua to the high kohen palace (Mattith'Yah 26:57; Yahn 18:12 –13). Yahvchanan goes into the high kohen palace with Yahshua but Kepha stays outside with the servants (Mattith'Yah 26:58; Yahn 18:15-16). The chief kohen, elders and the council/Sanhedrin sought to find false witnesses against Yahshua (Mattith'Yah 26:59 – 62). While this is going on Kepha is outside and denies Yahshua the first time (Mat. 26:69-70; Yahn 18:17). Kepha continues to stand with the servants and officers around a fire to warm his body (Mat. 26:71-72; Yahn 18:18). Yahshua continues to be question by the high kohen (Mattith'Yah 26:63-64). Kepha denies Yahshua the second time (Yahn 18:25).
12 AM: At midnight Kepha denies Yahshua the third time (Mat. 26:73-75; Yahn 18:27). The third watch took place beginning at midnight according to Strong’s Concordance and lasted until 3 AM. During this time Yahshua is being abused and tortured (Mattith'Yah 26:67-68; Yahn 18:22).
This would be "Wednesday" morning (the 4th day of the week) according to the Gregorian Babylonian Calendar. This would be the first few hours of the 4th day of the week according to YaHVeH’s Calendar.
3 AM: The Fourth Watch begins at three o’clock and ends at sunrise around six in the morning. The chief kohen, elders and the Sanhedrin hold Yahshua from 12 AM to 6 AM (Mattith'Yah 27:1).
6 AM: The First watch begins and ends at 9 AM. Yahshua is delivered to Pilate (Mattith'Yah 27:2; Yahn 18:28). Judas Iscariot realizes what he has done (Mattith'Yah 27:3 – 6). Pilate sends Yahshua to Herod. Herod and his men mock Yahshua and disrespect and abuse Him (Luke 23:6 – 12).
9 AM: The second watch begins and ends at Noon. Yahshua is delivered back to Pilate (Luke 23:12 – 17). The Yudiy continue to sentence Yahshua and ask that Barabba be released to them (Yahn 18:39-40). Pilate washes his hands of this matter and the Yudiy accept Yahshua's blood on their heads and their children’s (Mattith'Yah 27:20 – 25). Pilate releases Yahshua to be scourged and hung on the stake/tree (Mark 15:15). Roman soldiers lead Yahshua away to Praetorium Hall where they torture Him (Mattith'Yah 27:26 – 31; Mark 15:16 – 20; Yahn 19:1 – 5). Pilate continues to tell the Yudiy religious leaders for the third time he can find no fault in Yahshua (Shemoth 12:5; Luke 23:18 – 22).
12 PM: The third watch lasted from Noon to 3 PM. This would be the sixth hour (Yahn 19:14). Yahshua is taken outside by the Roman soldiers so He can be hung (Mark 15:20). The soldiers compel Shimon a Cyrenian to carry Yahshua’s stake (Mark 15:21). Many women are following Yahshua crying for Him. Yahshua tells them don’t cry for Him but for their selves (Luke 23:28 – 31). Yahshua is taken to the place called Golgotha or the place of the skull (Mattith'Yah 27:33). Darkness was over the entire land during this time (Mattith'Yah 27:45; Mark 15:33; Luke 23:44).
1 PM: Yahshua is laid on His stake and the Roman soldiers offered Him vinegar mingled with gall to drink before they nail Him to the stake (Mattith'Yah 27:34; Mark 15:23). I have heard some say that this mixture of vinegar and gall was some type of painkiller. The soldier’s begin to nail Yahshua to the stake (Mattith'Yah 27:35). He is placed between two criminals (Yesha'Yah 53:12; Luke 23:32; Yahn 19:18; T'hiyliym/Psalm 22:16). Pilate writes Yahshua’s title and places it on the stake (Yahn 19:19 – 20). The chief kohen complains of the title that Pilate writes (Yahn 19:21). At this time the Yudiy would begin to slaughter the lambs (Shemoth/Exodus 12: 6; Yahn 1:29; I Corinthians 5:7).
1:30 PM: Around this time Yahshua is placed up right hanging on the tree (B'midbar/Numbers 21:9; Yahn 3:14; Dabariym/Deuteronomy 21:22-23; Mark 15:25). The soldiers case lots for His clothes (Mattith'Yah 27:35; Mark 15:24; Luke 23:34; Yahn 19:23-24; T'hiyliym 22:18). The people begin to revile and mock Him (Mattith'Yah27:39 – 44; Mark 15:29 – 32; Luke 23:35 –37). Yahshua’s mother Miryam/Mary and her sister and Miryam Magdalene stands at Yahshua’s stake (Yahn 19:25). Yahshua gives his mother into Yahvchanan's (Yahn) hands to take care of her (Yahn 19:26-27).
3 PM: Fourth watch begins. This would be the ninth hour. Yahshua cries out with a loud voice to YaHVeH (Mattith'Yah 27:46; Mark 15:34). Those standing around who heard Him thought He was crying out to Eli'Yah (Mattith'Yah 27:47; Mark 15:35). Someone gives Yahshua some vinegar to drink (Mattith'Yah 27:48-49; Mark 15:36; Yahn 19:28-29). Yahshua commends His Ruach into YaHVeH’s hands and dies (Mattith'Yah 27:50; Mark 15:37; Luke 23:46; Yahn 19:30).
3:30 PM: The Yudiy request from Pilate that the bodies be removed before the annual Sabbath of the Feast of Unleavened Bread (which falls on the 15th) begins (Yahn 19:31). Soldiers come to the bodies that have been hung on the stakes and break their legs (Yahn 19:32) because they were still alive. They come to Yahshua and see that He is already dead, they don’t brake His legs (Yahn 19:33; Shemoth12:5; T'hiyliym 34:20), one of the Roman soldiers pierces Yahshua’s side with his spear (Yahn 19:34; Revelation 1:7; T'hiyliym 22:18).
4:00 PM: Yoseph of Arimathea request from Pilate Yahshua’s body (Mattith'Yah 27:57-58; Mark 15:43 – 45; Luke 23:50 – 52; Yahn 19:38). Nicodemus helps Yoseph to remove Yahshua’s body and they prepare His body for burial (Mattith'Yah 27:59; Mark 15:46; Luke 23:53; Yahn 19:39-40).
Begin counting when Yahshua is in the sepulchre (Mattith'Yah 12:40). Yahshua is laid in the tomb before sun down.
5:00 PM: Yoseph and Nicodemus take Yahshua and lay Him in the garden sepulchre because it was close (Mattith'Yah 27:60; Mark 15:46; Luke 27:53; Yahn 19:41-42). 1 night begins Yahshua time in the tomb.
6:00 PM: *Miryam Magdalene and Miryam of Yose`s/Yoseph watch Yahshua being laid in the tomb (Mattith'Yah 27:61; Mark 15:47; Luke 23:55) and prepare spices for His body (Luke 23:56).
6:45 PM: At sun down the 5th day begins according to YaHVeH’s Calendar . The Annual Sabbath of Feast of Unleavened Bread begins the 15th, called the night to be much observed (Mattith'Yah 27:62; Luke 23:56; Shemoth 12:42).
From sundown to sundown the annual Sabbath of Feast of Unleavened Bread is kept. Yahudiy are resting during this time.
6:00 AM: Yahshua is 1 day when the sun is up in the tomb.
5:00 PM: Yahshua is 2-nights in tomb.
6:46 PM: At sun down the 6th day begins according to YaHVeH’s Calendar . The Annual Sabbath ends (16th day of the 1st Chodesh begins).
6:00 AM: The chief kohen and Pharisee’s go to Pilate and request guards to secure Yahshua’s tomb (Mattith'Yah 27:62 – 66). It is at this time that the kohen offers up the First Fruits the wave sheaf. Yahshua is that wave sheaf, He is the first Fruit of many more to come.
6:00 AM: Yahshua is 2-days when the sun is up in the tomb.
6:47 PM: At sun down the 7th day would begin, which is the weekly Sabbath according to YaHVeH’s Calendar (17th day of the 1st Chodesh begins).
6:00 AM: Yahshua is now the 3rd day when the sun is up in the tomb.
5:00 PM: This would equal 3 days and 3 nights that Yahshua has laid in the tomb. Yahshua is in the tomb for the 3rd night. It is at this time that Yahshua had to be raised from the dead for His word to be fulfilled. It would have to be at around this time that the earthquake took place that open other believers tombs that were resurrected back to flesh and blood (Mattith'Yah 27:51 – 54). The guards that the chief kohen and Pharisees had watching Yahshua’s tomb witness this event. The veil of the heykal is torn in two from the top to the bottom (Mattith'Yah 27:51; Mark 15:38; Luke 23:45). There is some confusion on my part of when the guards confessed that Yahshua is the Ben of Elohiym. Was it while He was hanging on the tree? Or was it when it He was raised from the dead? Or was it at both times that the soldiers confessed that He was the Ben of Elohiym? *Those spices Miryam Magdalene and Miryam of Yose`s had prepared three days ago they will be bringing to Yahshua's tomb the next day in the early morning of the first day of the week.
6:48 PM: At sundown the weekly Sabbath ends and the 1st day of the week begins (18th day of the 1st Chodesh begins).
5:00 AM: Miryam Magdalene and the other Miryam arrive at the tomb before sunrise and fine the stone that seals the tomb rolled away already. They look inside the tomb, Yahshua is not inside but a Shamayim Malak is and informs them of what has taken place (Mattith'Yah 28:1 – 8; Mark 16: 1 – 8; Luke 24:1 – 9; Yahn 20:1).
This calculation of events is estimation only and is meant to give you a general idea of the time frame that our Rabbi was offered and raised from the dead. I’m sure if you do enough research and digging you can come up with even a better estimation.

This Chodesh chart is a flashback to the time when Yahshua was hung on the tree for our sins. It is to help you gain a better understanding of those things mentioned in the four books of the witnesses/Messianic Writings. Yahshua said He must be in the tomb three days and three nights. This chart I trust will also help you better comprehend that YaHVeH's weekly Sabbaths do not fall according to the new Chodesh. Remember the women prepared spices for Yahshua's body and rested on the Sabbath. This Sabbath was a weekly Sabbath and not the annual. I know this because of the time frame of Pesach and what Yahshua said about the sign of Yonah. If you will read those certain verses the women on the 1st day went to the tomb (Luke 23:54-56; 24:1). It has nothing to do with turning the 1st day of the week into a man made sabbath, but does reveal to believers that the weekly Sabbath YaHVeH commanded had to be counted and kept track of, and had to be revealed again to the children of Yisrael in Shemoth/Exodus chapter 16.

|16th preparation day for the weekly Sabbath before sun down (Luke 23:54). The day the wave sheave was offered.||17th|
Just encase your wondering why the chart is setup this way; this web site format will not allow me to have the calendar chart viewed 6th day of the week and 7th day weekly Sabbath beside the 5th day of the week. It pushes it off the page and cannot be seen.
