English: Resurrection of Christ

Hal Lindsey,  in his weekly report, reran an episode from 2008, where he explained how it is that Christ was crucified on Thursday, not Friday, as conventional thinking assumes. He gave scriptural evidence and explained the 3 Jewish festivals that occurred that week: Passover, Feast of Unleavened Bread, and First Fruits (which, by the way, occurred on Sunday), and how all these combined in the person, life, death and resurrection of Christ.

I wanted to post a link to it, but cannot find it on his site. However, here are a couple of links I found on the web, that do a good job of explaining exactly how events happened that Holy Week, how, with 2 not just 1 Sabbath that occurred back to back, have caused confusion especially in Western thinking.

Please read these carefully; get out your Bibles, if necessary (though the scripture references are linked), shoot, get your Bible out anyway and do some studying on your own!

I hope this helps you to understand better how and when events occurred in the days before Christ’s crucifixion.
