1 Enoch 41:6-7
And the Sun goes out first, and completes its journey at the command of the Lord of
Spirits - and his Name endures forever and ever. And after this is the hidden, and
visible, path of the Moon, and it travels the course of its journey, in that place, by
day and by night.
The sun is the measure for the day, Sabbath (week), month and year. Remember,
the Qumran community of Temple Levite priests wrote that Jubilees is the Torah
Calendar and Israel, controlled by the Pharisees through their synagogue network
and takeover of the Temple turned “a blind eye” to this calendar even in the days
(For Yahuah made) a Covenant with you and all Israel; therefore a man shall bind

it is strictly defined in the Book of the Divisions of the Times into their Jubilees and
Weeks. – Dead Sea Scrolls: The Damascus Document, 50 A.D.

and resurrection proves this out. Messiah arose just before sunrise, yet it was still
Saturday (Sabbath) and not considered Sunday according to the Biblical calendar.
This affirms the day actually begins at sunrise and not sundown because the sun
is the measure and not the moon.
Matthew 28:1 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 sepulchre.
John 20:1 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.
John 20:19 KJV
Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when
the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus
and stood in the midst...
Under what circumstances can it be just before dawn and the dark of the
morning, yet still be Sabbath (Saturday)? Only if the day begins at sunrise. Even
later in John, it marks the evening as still the same day after Mary had seen the
