Month of NISAN

Below, in calendar form, are the events of the last six days of Yeshua's (Jesus') life and His resurrection three days later. We should point out for those who are not aware, that while our day begins at midnight with half of the night being part of yesterday and the other half beginning the next day, the Jewish day began at sunset, with the evening.  Some think that "evening" means "end," being at the end of the day.  Actually, "eve" means "the period immediately proceeding a certain event" The American Heritage Dictionary.  Thus we have the night before New Years Day as "New Years Eve" or the night before Christmas Day as "Christmas Eve."  "Evening" for the Hebrews meant the period proceeding the day, from 6 pm to 6 am.  Their actual day began around 6 am, thus the third hour of the day on which Yeshua was led away to be crucified, was around 9 am, while the 9th hour of the day on which Yeshua died, was around 3 pm.  This is why we have offset the days in the calendar below from the dates.  For us, Thursday the 8th started at 12 midnight, but for the Hebrews, it started 6 hours earlier around  6 pm on Wednesday.

Credit should be given to Jesus Christ Our Passover, by VP Wierwille for much of the research which resulted in the following calendar.
