Questions and Answers

1. So what are the days and nights?
The nights were Thursday, Friday and Saturday (with His death on Friday) and the days were Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

2. What about partial days? Does Sunday really count as a day if it was at daybreak?

Beautiful confirmation of the "partial" third day (when the day broke on Sunday and Christ rose again) Read how this phrase was used before and the third day description answered:

Exodus 19:10 The LORD also said to Moses, “Go to the people and consecrate them today and tomorrow, and let them wash their garments; 11And be ready against the third day: for the third day the LORD will come down in the sight of all the people upon mount Sinai.
...16 So it came about ON THE THIRD DAY, when it was MORNING, that there were thunder and lightning flashes and a thick cloud upon the mountain and a very loud trumpet sound, so that all the people who were in the camp trembled.

3. What about the double Sabbath explanation or the "unusual holy day" that year?

I have not heard one yet that holds water. The Bible is specific about PASSOVER and SABBATH with no mention of a second Sabbath. Jesus shared the Passover meal by name with His disciples (the Last Supper) which begins on Nisan 14 (determined by a full moon)  in the afternoon. Passover dovetails into the feast of unleavened bread (a week long) but it would not exclude anyone from working during that time. So as some try to claim that Christ was crucified and died on Wednesday (to account for 3 days/nights if one tries to insist that means "tomb") then why did Mary and the women wait until after the Sabbath to bring the necessary spices to prepare His body? They could have prepared His body on Friday. They seemed anxious to do so, if they arrived at the tomb at the break of dawn on Sunday.

John 19:14

In researching this, I came across a Scripture that didn't seem to fit with ANY timeline because Jesus already shared the Passover meal, prayed, was betrayed, was beaten and scourged and dragged around (leaving a timeline) and then near the end of Passover, John writes:

 14And it was the preparation of the passover, and about the sixth hour:

Perhaps this is why scholars reach for an undocumented unique holiday, because the preparation of the passover is the day before passover. There is no disputing that the Bible clearly states "pesach" in the original language. We have a problem.

The answer lies in how the word "passover" is also used in the Bible. Regarding earlier events, Luke uses the word "passover" to describe the sacrificial lamb:

Then came the day of unleavened bread, when the passover must be killed. (Luke 22:7)

NOW read what John wrote, as he identifies Christ as the Sacrificial Lamb!

 14"And it was the preparation of the passover, and about the sixth hour: and he [Pilate] saith unto the Jews, Behold your King!"

Read it in context, it is even more obvious. Add to that the process of making the unleavened bread [Christ is the bread of life and the Feast of Unleavened Bread has begun] and we have an amazing yet painful portrayal of Jesus Christ fulfilling Scriptures, exactly as written.

God is so good!

4. According to Mosaic Law, Jesus had to die on Nisan 14, the first evening of Passover. He didn't. How do you explain that?

Exodus 12: 6And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening.  7And 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.  8And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.

At Passover, at the exact hour required above, on the night He was betrayed (and became sin):

19And He took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, "This is My body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.  20Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in My blood, which is shed for you." (Luke 22)

5. Out of the 613 Mosaic laws, which one makes Jesus to be sin?

Jesus was not guilty of any sin, He was blameless. But He did volunteer to atone for our sin which is traced back to the fall, of which there was a commandment:

16And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:  17But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

The law of Galatians 3:13 & Deut 21:23;
Christ made a curse

Galatians 3:13 "Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith."

A man supposed this means Christ did not become sin until He was on the cross, that this is the Mosaic law allowing it to be so.

The law is found in Deut 21:

22 And if a man have committed a sin worthy of death, and he be to be put to death, and thou hang him on a tree: 23 His body shall not remain all night upon the tree, but thou shalt in any wise bury him that day; (for he that is hanged is accursed of God;) that thy land be not defiled, which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance.

What exactly is the law fulfilled by Christ in Deuteronomy and Galatians? It is that sin which previously occurred be hung on a tree and is cursed. In the onset of the LAW, the man has already been declared guilty. Sin is prevalent, hung on the tree/cross and cursed. There are two different factions. 1. Sin 2. God’s curse

Now read Galatians 3:13 again:

13Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

If an innocent man is hanging on a tree, does Deut 21:22 then curse him? Deut 21:22 says, "if a man has committed a sin worthy of death." If Christ was placed on that tree in innocence, Deut 21 would not be in effect.

Christ had to have become the sin worthy of death first. And that harmonizes with Isaiah,

"He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement of our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed" (Isaiah 53:5)

He was not presented as the Lamb without spot or blemish for sin on the cross, He was presented on the night He was betrayed, right after He healed an ear and  proclaimed, "this is your hour, and the power of darkness." He was presented as an unidentified man appeared and the linen (righteousness) was removed as at the fall, and the horrific beatings, bruisings and scourgings began.

Hanging on the tree/cross, He was cursed of God, announced "it is finished" with that curse, and died to rise again.

"These are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms concerning Me"…"Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day, and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name to all nations" ~ Jesus on the road of Emmaus

6. Then WHAT LAW supports these claims? (a man seemed to get very angry with me about this)

I tried to explain that God is not under the law, that God gives mercy and grace where He will, but this man kept insisting that there has to be a law about placing sin on Christ. I almost didn't answer him because he was on the attack and trying to find "permission" from the law felt like trying to put new wine in old wine skins, Jesus warned us they would burst...but since it was so important to him, I gave him Leviticus 16, the scapegoat, Yom Kippur.

"But like new wine in old wineskins, it is not an exact fit. The sins are placed on the goat that runs away I believe? and Christ did not run away. But more than this illustration, the one that comes to mind is Genesis 22:13-14, God replacing the sacrifice of Isaac with a ram with horns caught in thorns. Ever see the crown of thorns in that?"

I didn't hear from him again after that.
