"Response to Marilyn Agee--why April 3, 33 AD was, to a moral certainty, the day of the crucifixion"

Hello, John and Doves,
In the billions [thousands] of years that the universe has existed, there never has been a "Thursday, Nisan 13, 30 AD."  However, there was a
Yom Reviʻi - יום רביעי (abbr. יום ד׳[= "fourth day" = Wednesday]
14 Nisan 3790, equivalent to our Tuesday-Wednesday 4-5 April 30 AD.
However, Daniel 9:24 and the subsequent events of history rule out any date in 30 AD.
For details, see the lawyer-approved http://bethlehemstar.net/
You'll see that April 3, 33 AD was, to a moral certainty, the day of the crucifixion.
When you pick your jaw up off the floor, drop Five Doves a post.
I hope this helps:  http://www.aish.com/jl/hol/o/48970511.html.

"Michael Colunga (21 July 2012) Crucifixion Day

> > He could celebrate Passover on what we would call Thursday night, 2 April, 33 AD, and he would still be on time to die as the Passover Lamb for all time at 3 pm, in the evening of 14th Nisan, which was Friday afternoon, 3 April 33 AD. See
"Three evenings and three mornings" is exactly equal in meaning to "three days of Jewish reckoning."
I think the crucifixion was on Thursday, Nisan 13, 30 AD. On the Feast of Atonement in 27 AD, Jesus announced the coming Jubilee (28 AD).
Luke 4:16  "And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read.
Luke 4:17  And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written,
Luke 4:18  The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
Luke 4:19  To preach the acceptable year of the Lord (i.e., the Jubilee Year, 28 AD).
Luke 4:20  And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him.
Luke 4:21  And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears."
Jesus died about 3 PM on Nisan 13 as the lambs were beginning to be killed at the Temple. They had to be roasted and eaten before midnight, the 6th hour of Nisan 14, Passover.
If the lambs were killed Friday afternoon, the firstborn of Israel would have died the previous midnight when they were in Egypt.
> > The 14th of Nisan must have been on a Friday, because the day of preparation was the day before the weekly Shabbat, because it is written,
"Do not light a fire in any of your dwellings on the Sabbath day."
I agree that Nisan 14 was Friday, and Friday is normally the preparation of the Sabbath, but the preparation of the high day, the Annual Sabbath, Passover, was Thursday.
John_19:14 says,  "And it was the preparation of the Passover".

The 3 days and 3 nights were Thursday (day), Friday (night then day), Saturday (night then day), and Sunday (night).
