The diagram above will show you the day that our Messiah was crucified on. Many people all over the world don’t study the Word of Yah (God); therefore they don’t have the understanding when to start the count of the 3 days and 3 nights. We must learn that the Hebrew day begins at evening (sunset).
As shown above, the 14th day of the 1st biblical month was the preparation day which would be on Tuesday on the Gentile calendar. Yahshua was crucified on the 14th day of the 1st biblical month which is on Passover which was on a Wednesday. Keep in mind that one full Hebrew day is from Tuesday sunset (14th of 1st month) to Wednesday sunset (15th day of 1st month). Yahshua died at the 9th hour which would be 3pm on gentile time (Wednesday). So we would begin the 1st night in the grave on Wednesday night which is the beginning of the 15th day, the 1st day on Thursday, the 2nd night Thursday night which is the beginning of the 16th day, the 2nd day on Friday, the 3rd night on Friday which is the beginning of the 17th day (begins the Sabbath day), and the 3rd day on Saturday. Yahshua rose on Saturday (Sabbath day) on the 17th day of the 1st biblical month before evening (sunset). Keep in mind the 18th day of the 1st month begin at evening (sunset) which it would begin the 1st day of the week which would be Sunday (gentile time). So when did Miriam (Mary) arrive?
John 20: 1-2 King James Version (KJV)
The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre.
2 Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they have laid him.
Matthew 28: 1 Kings James Version (KJV)
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 sepulcher.
So we see that Yahshua was already gone on the 1st day of the week (Sunday) so he had to rise the day before the start of the 18th day.
