body that day in observance of the Sabbath. They would after sunrise each day
even the third day when He rose from the dead. Passover was the night before
Messiah’s death according to Mark and all 4 Gospels.
Mark 14 KJV
1-2 After two days was the feast of the passover, and of unleavened bread: and the
chief priests and the scribes sought how they might take him by craft, and put him to
death. But they said, Not on the feast day, lest there be an uproar of the people. 12
And the first day of unleavened bread, when they killed the passover, his disciples said
unto him, Where wilt thou that we go and prepare that thou mayest eat the passover?
It was the next morning when the Pharisees took Messiah to Pilate. Messiah was

Mark 15 KJV
1 And straightway in the morning the chief priests held a consultation with the elders
and scribes and the whole council, and bound Jesus, and carried him away, and
delivered him to Pilate.
25 And it was the third hour, and they crucified him.
33 And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole land until
the ninth hour.
Therefore, Messiah was crucified from 9 am (3rd Hour) and gave up the ghost
at 3 pm (9th Hour). The day began at 6 am approximately in this chronology

at sunset based on the moon which would disrupt His calendar. This has never fit
the calendar of Rabbinic Judaism. This is affirmed again when one understands
there are two calendars at play even in those days. Joseph was abiding by the
Pharisee calendar and the Apostles and followers, the Biblical one. Everything
that appears to be a discrepancy is easily explained with this understanding.
Mark 15:42-43 KJV
And now when the even was come, because it was the preparation, that is, the day
before the sabbath, Joseph of Arimathaea, an honourable counsellor, which also
waited for the kingdom of God, came, and went in boldly unto Pilate, and craved the
body of Jesus.
Mark 16:1-2 KJV
And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James,
