    I am teaching another module (starts Apr 6) on Chronology and this will cover intertestimental - Acts. Lots to cover.

    But I am working on a chronology of the Life of Christ and am fussing over Passion Week.

    Know that Doc Cassidy (when he was functioning here) set forth a Wednesday AD31 crucifixion. I have always held Thursday AD30. Talking with a pastor here (going to be taking the class) and he suggested Friday AD32!

    Thoughts?

    Special need: HOW do you get all the events from Palm Sunday - Last Supper in before Tuesday evening? (so Jesus could die on Wednesday).

    Or HOW do you stretch those events to go all the way to Thursday? (so Jesus could die on Friday) This seems to leave "silent" days!

    THANKS.

    Why aren't the traditional days of the holidays correct?

    Sunday - Entry into Jerusalem
    Thursday - Last Supper
    Friday - Crucifiction
    Sunday - Resurrection

    Just trying to harmonize all the events with the days. And btw, Jesus rose early on Sunday (which began roughly 7 pm Saturday night Jewish time).

    By the time the women got there before daylight, He was long gone and an angel was there.

    So work your way backward 3-days-and-3-nights.

    But more difficulty is fitting in events prior to Last Supper.

    I think Raymond Brown came up with Friday 29 AD.
