and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him. And very
early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the
rising of the sun.
Joseph kept the Pharisee Sabbath by placing Messiah in the tomb before sundown.
However, in the resurrections, Mark affirms that on the third day, the women wait
for sunrise to purchase their spices for anointing. Joseph purchased linens, etc.
during the day three days earlier but his Sabbath had not begun yet though the
Biblical Sabbath had. It would have violated it several times and he did violate
the Biblical one but it is apparent he is following the Pharisee calendar instead.
The women do not anoint his body on the first Sabbath which is a special Feast
Sabbath which is the only way you get two Sabbaths in one week. They did not
violate the first Sabbath but took note of where the body was laid to go back
and anoint it after sunrise the next day and on the third day, we see this same
cycle repeated as they wait until sunrise to purchase spices. That only works if
the day begins at sunrise. Messiah died on the Feast Sabbath and resurrected on
the Weekly Sabbath (Saturday). This was exactly three days and three nights just
as He said it would be and we can restore faith in the Word. However, we also
see this in Torah and the Old Testament as a matter of record and really is not
something that is debatable. During the Exodus, this is confirmed several times.
Exodus 10:4 KJV
4 Else, if thou refuse to let my people go, behold, to morrow will I bring the locusts
into thy coast:
13 And Moses stretched forth his rod over the land of Egypt, and the LORD brought
an east wind upon the land all that day, and all that night; and when it was morning,
the east wind brought the locusts.
The locusts are promised to come tomorrow. When is that? The next morning.
Exodus 12:6-8 KJV
6-8 And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole
assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening. And they shall take
of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the
houses, wherein they shall eat it. And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with
fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.
10-11 And ye shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; and that which
remaineth of it until the morning ye shall burn with fire.
…it is the Lord’s passover
