Could Jesus have been crucified on a Friday? If so, The Messiah was a liar who did not spend three days in the grave.
The tomb of Jesus the Messiah was empty Sunday morning. That is resurrection Sunday.
The Pope in Rome claims «Jesus» was crucified on Friday. The Vatican wants us to believe it was only one full day and two nights between the Messiah`s burial and his resurrection. Jesus rebukes the Pope. He said He would rise on the third day:
For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
Basic mathematics makes either the Pope or Jesus of Nazareth a liar. If Jesus had to spend three days in the grave, He was surely crucified not later than on Thursday. The Messiah was buried in the evening.
[ The Burial of Jesus ] As evening approached, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who had himself become a disciple of Jesus.
Jesus could not have been laid in the grave on Friday evening. Simply because that is the Jewish Sabbath, that starts at sunset, around 6 pm. The Bible can not be misunderstood. Jesus was crucified and buried on the day before the Sabbath.
Now it was the day of Preparation, and the next day was to be a special Sabbath. Because the Jews 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.
Jesus was laid to rest on the Preparation day, the day before the Sabbath. That can not have been later than Thursday. If Thursday was a special Sabbath linked to the Feats of Unleavened bread, than that years preparation day was on a Wednesday.
Jesus celebrated passover with his students. And since the Messiah was the passover lamb that was going to be slaughtered, Jesus the Messiah had to die during the passover, and led to rest before the Sabbath.
Jesus is the truth. The Pope is a liar.
Does it matter which day Jesus was crucified?
Well, obviously not for the Roman Catholic religion. Their «Jesus» was crucified on the only day the Passover week that Jesus of Nazareth could not have been crucified. Thats makes a mockery of the truth, a bid to falsify the Jewish roots of our faith.
