Did Jesus Christ rise from the dead on the Sabbath (Saturday), or Easter Sunday morning?


Clue: The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day, (for that sabbath day was an HIGH DAY,) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away. - John 19:31 (emphasis of BOLD LETTERS mine) The Passover Sabbath was on a different day than the regular Saturday Sabbath. Knowing the day of the Passover Sabbath (Nisan 14) would reveal whether Jesus Christ rose on the Sabbath (Saturday), or Easter Sunday.

    that is the apostate "churches of men" standard answer . IT IS NOT the scriptural answer.

    The Sunday He rose from the tomb was also the day of the Wave Sheaf offering.

    Celafoe,

    You are correct. It simply comes down reading the Bible and connecting the dots for yourself. Unfortunately, many gobble up the wares, traditions, and "cotton candy" of man without weighing and testing it on Scripture to see if it is true.
