Differing Crucifixion Traditions

22 Apr

This chart indicates what occurred during the final week of the life of our Lord, Jesus Christ. The days of the week in each crucifixion theory are placed against the background of the first column and how many days before the Passover Feast Day (Nisan 15) that the Scriptures indicate the activity would have had to occur. For the Bible references, see the associated blogs above for each crucifixion theory.

WEDNESDAY CRUCIFIXION
THURSDAY CRUCIFIXION
FRIDAY CRUCIFIXION
7 days before PassoverNisan 8 Thursday:At Jericho in the home of Zacchaeus. Friday:At Jericho in the home of Zacchaeus. Sabbath:Spent at Jericho. Not Biblical for no one acts like this is a Sabbath rest.
Six days before Passover.Nisan 9 Friday:1st Entry into Jerusalem from Jericho then leaves for Bethany. Sabbath:Not Biblical for no one rests. Jesus enters Jerusalem from Jericho Sunday:1st Entry into Jerusalem from Jericho then leaves for Bethany.
5-days-before PassoverNisan 10 The Great Sabbathspent at Bethany with Lazarus. Many others came to see him. Sunday:spent at Bethany with Lazarus. Many others came to see him. Monday:spent at Bethany with Lazarus. Many others came to see him

Nisan 15Passover Feast Dayor the First Day of Unleavened Bread Thursday:Sabbath a Holy Day, Feast of Unleavened Bread & the day the guard was set at the tomb. Friday:Holy Day Sabbath, Feast of Unleavened Bread & the day the guard was set at the tomb. Saturday:Double Sabbath -Feast of Unleavened Bread & 7th Day Sabbath on the same day & the day the guard was set at the tomb.
Nisan 16 Friday:the day between the two Sabbaths the day the spices were bought and prepared by the women. 7thDay Sabbath:the day the Wave Sheaf was cut, but when did the women buy and prepare the spices? Resurrection Sunday:the day the Wave Sheaf was offered.
Nisan 17 Sabbath:Resurrection during the final moments of the day, just as the Wave Sheaf was being harvested. Resurrection Sunday:at sunrise as the Wave Sheaf is offered to God. Monday:No particular significance
Nisan 18 Sunday:Wave Sheaf offered as Christ ascends to Father to be accepted as our Substitute. Monday:No Particular Significance Tuesday:No particular Significance
Conclusion This is the only scenario that agrees with the Scriptures and has no ambiguity in our Lord’s final week on earth Does not follow the Gospel account. Has Christ entering Jerusalem on the Sabbath and resting in Bethany on Sunday. Requires a Sabbath before entering Jerusalem, but no one rested on that day! Also Triumphant Entry is on the wrong day.
