Today is Good Friday – in Australia, at least; it’s still the day before in some parts of the world.  Today, many Christians celebrate and remember Yehoshua ha’Mashiach/Jesus the Christ’s death by crucifixion on a Friday, and His resurrection 3 days later on a Sunday.

BUT – it’s all a myth.  No, Yeshua’s crucifixion and resurrection is absolutely NOT a myth in any way, shape or form – nor is it “non-literal”, as some absurdly claim.  However, the tale of “Good Friday” is a myth.  Allow me to elaborate.

The Bible is clear that Jesus was raised on a Sunday.  More specifically, Saturday night.  And since in Biblical times days were counted from sunset to sunset, what we call Saturday night was in fact Sunday – or to use the Biblical phrase, “first day of the week”.  (There was no “Sunday sunrise resurrection”; it was during the night.)  And it…

    1. Thanks.
      (Incidentally, while one can’t pin Christ’s birth date with absolute certainty, there is an actual possibility that it was in late December – although I should emphasise POSSIBILITY. Yeshua was conceived 6 months into Elizabeth’s pregnancy, and was thus born 6 months after John – and roughly 12, 12 1/2 months after Zechariah received the vision about his son. Each priest was a member of a course, and each course served twice a year. Depending on whether Zechariah was serving on the Abijah course’s first or second stint, Yeshua would’ve been born either around Sukkot in early/mid October, or Hanukkah in late December.)
