What Day Did Christ Die?
[Apostle1.com's Commentary, Opinion and Notation: We thank D & R Ross for the following educational understanding ... ]
Dear in Christ Metr.+J.T.
Here is another slant which is more to the truth.
There is no Biblical Authority for celebrating the Resurrection. Our Lord said that we were to show the Lord's Death until he comes. We do this each time we Celebrate the Eucharist and also no Authority for Sunday Worship as God only gave us one day at Creation that is the Shabbat.
Subject: What Day did Christ Die
Decree of Artaxerxes:
In Daniel 9:25-26 it is said that there would be 69 prophetic weeks till the Messiah would appear, and would be cut off (Crucified) in the midst of the week.
This equals 483 years.
Ezra tells us in 7:8 that it was in the 7th.Year of Artaxerxes reign that the decree came, which would be between Sept.458BC to Sept 457BC.This would be the 1st.Month to 5th.Month of God's Calendar (latter part of March to latter part of July 457BC). This was when Ezra journeyed back to Judea.
The date of issuance is amply
proved from astronomy, business Documents and the Canon of Ptolemy. The true
date is 457BC fixed by the most accurate records of history, written at that
very time. 483 years later brings us to the Autumn of AD26.
Jesus according to Daniel's prophecy, was anointed the the Messiah in 26AD.., which was 483 years after the Decree of Artaxerxes to restore Jerusalem.
The next fact we need to
understand is the age of Jesus when He was baptised and entered upon His
ministry. The only historical account of this is written by Luke in 1:1-4. In
Luke 3:23 it said he was about 30 years old.
Bearing in mind that there was no Year Zero as a lot of people seem to think, as it went from 1BC to 1AD. If he was 30 in the autumn of 26AD, then he must have been born in 4BC.Proof of this can be found in the Chronicle of John Malalas, trans by Matthew Spinka (Uni.of Chicago Press,1940). John Malalas was an Historian on Antioch, Syria (c.491-578AD). On Pages 32-33 he writes: 'In the 39th.year and the 10th month of his (Augustus) reign he commanded the taking of a census of all his lands, including all the the Romans held during the consulship of Agrippa II, and of Donatus. And all the earth under the Romans was registered by Eumenes and Attalus, the Roman Senators.'
Using the October to October calendar Malalas used, that dates the 39th.year as October 6BC to October 5BC., and the issuance of the decree for the Census to July 5BC. Suidas--another reliable authority-- and many others, add information about Augustus's decree, which proves the Census in Palestine was conducted the very next year--4BC, the very time Christ was born! (There is an excellent article in Ungers Bible Dictionary under "Chronology")
Now we come to the part of the Messiah being cut off in the midst of the prophetic week (ie Three and a Half Years) which would make Our Lord 33.5years old and take you to April in 30AD. The 14th.Nissan(Pesach) occurred on a Wednesday and he was buried prior to Sunset on that day and Our Lord said that he would be in the Bowels of the Earth three days and three nights as Jonah was in the belly of the fish and that would take to just before Sunset of the Weekly Shabat.
There were in that Week Three Yearly Shabats (Passover,Unleavened Bread, and First Fruits).Pesach being the Preparation day for Chag NMatzos and First Fruits those being very high days and then you have the Weekly Shabat on the 7th.Day which proves to be the Resurrection Day as well and not the First Day. When the women came to the Tomb they were told that the Lord had already risen. According to Bible time The First day begins just after Sunset on the 7th.Day.
