Today's Date: 



The purpose of this page is to calculate, with Scriptural references, the 3 days and 3 nights that the Messiah spent in the grave.  I would also like to develop a timeline to show the day of the week He was crucified and the day of His resurrection.


40 'For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. '  (KJV)

Jonah 1:17

17 'Now the first day of the feast of unleavened bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare for thee to eat the passover?'  (KJV)

Exodus 12:15-20

Exodus 13:3-10

Exodus 23:15

Exodus 34:18

Leviticus 23:6-8

Deuteronomy 16:3-12

Ezekiel 45:21

Unleavened Bread/Matzot

Feast of Unleavened Bread/Chag Matzoth (H)

disciples/talmidim (H)


passover/Pesach (H)

The feast of Unleavened Bread is held on the 15th through the 21st days of the first month (Abib)

  1 'In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.'  (KJV)

Since it is the end of the Sabbath and it is toward the first day of the week, this should be a weekly Sabbath.
This means the Messiah resurrected BEFORE daybreak on the first day of the week.

42 'And now when the even was come, because it was the preparation, that is, the day before the sabbath,'  (KJV)

  2 ' '  (KJV)

  1 ' '  (KJV)

  1 'Then Jesus six days before the passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was, which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead.'  (KJV)

YAHUSHUA comes to Bethany on the 9th of Aviv/Abib/Nisan

12 'On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem,'  (KJV)

The next day (after the day mentioned in John 12:1) would be the 10th of Aviv/Abib/Nisan (five days before Passover)
