Palm Sunday - or was it Monday?
« on: March 05, 2008, 01:32:08 PM »

Here's a little something that some of you may find interesting. The events attributed to Palm Sunday actually took place on Monday! The Passover that year (AD33) occurred on a Saturday (John ch 19: 31.)  Now take a look at John ch 12: 1, 12-13. I may be wrong, but I reckon five days before Saturday is Monday. Anybody got any thoughts?

Hello Gog

Welcome to the Forum!

Peace to you

Here is an article that fleshes out that question


Almost the entire Christian world celebrates Sunday as their day of worship in place of the seventh-day Sabbath God instituted at creation (Gen. 2:2-3). They justify doing this because they believe that Jesus Christ was raised from the dead on this day. However, as our study of the burial and resurrection has shown, the Greek text overwhelmingly supports another set of facts.

Yeshua was buried late on a Wednesday afternoon just before the Passover high Sabbath and he was resurrected very early on the morning of the weekly Sabbath. This particular weekly Sabbath was known to the Jews as the "First of the Sabbaths," because it was the first weekly Sabbath between Passover and Pentecost. Furthermore, it's likely that the "first day of the week," Sunday, is NEVER even mentioned in the Greek New Testament. May God help us to put away the traditions of men and obey His Torah!
