MY THEORY OF WHEN YAHSHUA ROSE FROM THE DEAD

Shalom Everyone, and Happy Pentecost! 


Since we’re still here, I thought that I would share the following explanation I offered someone concerning a Status Update that I made on Facebook on May 18th, 2013 that confused a few people. 

MY THEORY OF WHEN YAHSHUA ROSE FROM THE DEAD

In a recent Facebook Status Update, I was sharing when our Messiah may have risen from the dead, and I felt that my initial statement needed clarification. So I am writing this blog post in order to share more details about it.

My theory is that Yahshua rose either near to dusk on Saturday or shortly afterward on the night of Sunday, or the first day of the week. Since Mary Magdalene arrived at the tomb while it was still dark and saw His risen form shortly afterward (See John 20:1-18), Yahshua made His first live appearance after His death just before dawn that morning. In the Gospel of Matthew, Yahshua told us exactly how long He would be dead for, in imitation of the Sign of Jonah: 
~*~ Matthew 12:40 ~*~ “For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.”
Counting backward 3 nights and 3 days, which was the length of time that Yahshua was in the grave per the Sign of Jonah, He would have died on a Wednesday afternoon or 4th day of the week, just before a Passover that began on that Wednesday night, which was on a Thursday, or 5th day of the week.  So from the time that Yahshua died on the proposed Wednesday in the late afternoon, we have Thursday evening and daytime, Friday evening and daytime, and Saturday evening and daytime. That’s three days and three nights before Sunday, or the 1st day of the week. 

Yahshua is tied to the Fourth or Servant Lamp on a Menorah, so it would seem fitting that He would pay the price for our sins on a Wednesday, or fourth day of the week. Since Yahshua likely died just before the close of the day on Wednesday, it would make sense that He rose from the dead just before the close of the Sabbath or Saturday. But He also could have risen on Sunday night or the first day of the week (which is a Saturday night per Gentile reckoning). 

I wanted to explain this just to make sure that everyone understood me.

God bless you all, and Maranatha!
