Actually, Wednesday to Sunday involves five calendar days.

There are three 24-hour period from Wednesday to Sunday, not five. For your information, on Preparation Day, the market is open in the morning only. Thus, on that Friday afternoon, Mary Magdalene et al. could anoint Jesus. Why wait till Sunday?

peacecrusader888,

In post #97 you wrote ..."Jesus was crucified on...Thursday, and resurrected on Monday, the first day of the week.

I'm just saying that would mean that 5 calendar days would be involved.

It is not 5 calendar days from Thursday to the first day of the week when Mary Magdalene et al. discovered the missing body of Jesus in the sepulcher. There were three 24-hour periods, namely:
Thursday - Jesus was crucified and died
Friday - first night and day in the sepulcher (24 hours)
Saturday - second night and day in the sepulcher (24 hours)
Sunday - third night and day in the sepulcher (24 hours)
Monday - first day of the week when Mary Magdalene et al. discovered the missing body of Jesus in the sepulcher

What kind of calendar were the followers of Jesus using?

Why do you consider Thursday as calendar day 1?

Why do you consider Monday as calendar day 5?

re: "What kind of calendar were the followers of Jesus using?"

I assume it was one with 7 calendar days.


re: "Why do you consider Thursday as calendar day 1? Why do you consider Monday as calendar day 5?"

Because you said that the Messiah was crucified and died on Thursday. That would make Thursday the 1st day that was involved. Then Friday would be the 2nd day, Saturday would be the 3rd day, Sunday would be the 4th day, and since you said that the Messiah rose on Monday, that would make Monday the 5th day.

I am asking what kind of calendar were the followers of Jesus using, and not the named days of the week. The kind of calendars are a) purely lunar calendar, b) lunisolar calendar, and c) solar calendar.

Thursday - Jesus was crucified and died; preparation day
Friday - night and day 1 - high day Sabbath
Saturday - night and day 2 - weekly Sabbath of the Jews
Sunday - night and day 3 - Sabbath of the followers of Jesus
Monday - discovery of the missing body of Jesus

Please explain what difference it makes with regard to Thursday, Friday, Saturday,Sunday and Monday not involving at least parts of 5 calendar days?



re: "Monday - discovery of the missing body of Jesus"

You also said in post #78 that "Jesus resurrected on Monday, the first day of the week."

A purely lunar calendar and a lunisolar calendar start the day at sunset and end the following day sunset. Do you have any question on this? A solar calendar like the Julian calendar starts the day at midnight yet. Do you have any question on this?

You are using the Jewish number of days.
, ,Lunar Lunisolar Solar
Wednesday, ,Jesus crucified
Thursday, ,1 1 Jesus crucified
Friday, ,2 2 1 (24 hours)
Saturday, ,3 3 2 (24 hours)
Sunday, ,4 4 3 (24 hours)
Monday, ,5 5 Jesus resurrected after midnight page 177, Pasiong Mahal.

Mark 15:42 - "And now when the even was come, because it was the preparation, that is, the day before the Sabbath,"
