Day of Crucifixion



Revised (Re-edited December 2016 after writing “Roma”)


Basic Facts First

The only way to identify the Day of Crucifixion is mathematically. Fortunately I did the math correctly, but ended up having no faith in the results because the day Jesus died is based on assumptions; it doesn’t match any known parameters associated with the Julian calendar. 1.) Jesus is the Creator. 2.) His life was a microcosm of the vernal equinoctial year. 3.) Jesus first seven days were not included in his life cycle. 4.) Circumcision was the beginning of the “cloud” representation of earth’s rotational cycle. 5.) Jesus replaced the Paschal Lamb. 6.) Jesus life cycle represents the 33-year rotational cycle but doesn’t match it numerically; he was born in 1 B.C. and died in A.D. 31 (not born in A.D. 1 and died A.D. 33).

The math is simple! From the Day of Circumcision (Tuesday, April 3rd, 1 B.C.; Millennium Eph. cal #4), calculate 12053 days and you identify the Day of Crucifixion (12053/7 = 0.8571; Tuesday 1/7 = 0.1428; Wednesday – 0.2857; Thursday – 0.4285; Friday – 0.5714; Saturday – 0.7142; Sunday – 0.8571, bingo). It’s that easy. Jesus was crucified on a Sunday April 3rd, A.D 31 (Millennium Eph. Cal. #2); but, here’s the hard part, it’s what became Sunday. Matthew’s story is Jesus was put on the cross Friday at 9:00 am (Mark 15:25) – and then the Creator added two (2) days rotation to the earth which became Sunday by the time the soldiers took him down. If you mathematically change a descending array of numbers into an ascending array of numbers using a zero year and proper leap days, two (2) days must be added to the mix. The math happened at the zero year, the reality happened while Jesus Christ (Creator) was on the cross dying for our sins (Matt. 27:45). What transpired physically during the 48 hours of this event is basically unexplainable, except it existed mathematically.

Ok the day is identified, but what year are we talking about? There are clues to follow. “I have appointed thee each day for a year.” (Ezekiel 4:6). Daniel used the Kalend (ten month Roman Republic calendar) as an identification of a calendar year (day equals year); “toes” ten toes (calend = a time) which equaled a year (Dan. 2:42; 12:7). Logically, if there are two (2) extra days it equals two (2) extra years Biblically (p. 121); what seemingly should have been A.D. 33 became A.D. 31! Also, the United States Naval Web page (p. 41, 42 of this book) identifies two (2) years as possibilities. The correct chart is on pp. 237,238; if you count 33 years from 1 B.C. it’s year A.D. 31, the correct year of the Crucifixion. Mathematically Jesus Christ was crucified on Sunday, April 3rd, A.D. 31 Millennium Ephemeris calendar #2. He was also crucified on Wednesday, April 3rd, A.D. 31 Julian calendar #9; but, that’s not what is represented in the Gospels. So, if all of these elements of year A.D. 31 are accurate the Julian/Gregorian calendar system should not match correct astrophysics today; IT DOESN’T, and that’s the problem.

Actual Events

Julius Caesar was fulfilling prophecy by developing his calendar. He was given that calendar so God could get more “renown” (Dan. 9:15) against Egypt. God did not let Egypt acquire another calendar to purposely blaspheme his name. Prophetic action was even administered against the Alexandrian Library which Julius Caesar burned to the ground. Prominent in this calendar were descending years incorporating a zero year, followed by ascending years. A mathematical formula is required to maneuver through this labyrinth.

In opposition to this Roman calendar is the actual 231-year rotation of our solar system, known as “the glorious holy mountain” (Dan. 9:45); two (2) different systems of identifying days of weeks. Faulty Roman numerals have no zero which complicate the mathematics proportionately. The faulty Julian calendar was by A.D. 33, three hundred sixty four (364) days out of alignment with solar system reckoning. This is imperceptible because to the senses that’s only one day seasonally, and who back then could calculate what year it actually was? To know what year the Crucifixion occurred, one must know both the solar system rotation and the year of the birth of Jesus Christ. This information was unavailable to the disciples as far as we know.

Even though two (2) days were required to make the transition to ascending years, the actual event astronomically didn’t occur until Christ’s Crucifixion. In other words it was to be ignored mathematically and in the count of days in A.D. 31, because it had already been tabulated in the mathematics 32 years earlier. Of course there was no way the extra days were not going to be recognized. In conclusion of these thoughts, it was ridiculous to appoint uneducated fishermen to identify the day of Crucifixion.


The Story of Jesus’ Death and Resurrection


The day of crucifixion has been a mystery since the very day itself. Historically/traditionally the story is, it ran from 6:00 pm 14th day until 6:00 pm 15th day. John says it’s the “preparation of the Passover” (14th day); about 12:00 pm (John 13:1; 19:14), the day preceding the Passover. So also Matthew (26:2,17; 27:1), as does Mark (14:12; 15:1) and Luke (22:7,66). This is confirmed by the Julian calendar; it’s a #5 Julian calendar and April 3rd, A.D. 33 is a Friday (14th day). Today we celebrate the crucifixion on Good Friday the day before the Passover (Saturday) followed by Easter on Sunday which represents the resurrection.

You can see though, the Julian calendar only tallies two whole days but three nights from Christ’s death to the resurrection. The modern version was the beginning of the “story” that a partial day equals a whole day in that you counted Friday as one (1) day, Saturday as one (1) day and Sunday as the last day so Jesus was then dead three days and Mary went to the tomb on Sunday morning. But, this story doesn’t add up either. It only equals two (2) days and two (2) nights, not the “three days and three nights” Jesus claimed in Matt. 12:40. The Jews were not about to crucify Jesus on Saturday (Sabbath) and confirm him as the long awaited Messiah (Matt. 26:5). This is why they had Jesus Christ on the cross Friday by 9:00 am.

We are compelled to believe the Julian calendar, but is that the whole story? Other factors are binding upon the outcome of a competent mathematical conclusion. There was no Mosaic Sabbath until after the Passover (Exodus 12: 14-19, 29-31; first Sabbath – 16:23). The crucifixion is then released from conformity to Sabbath constraints; the reason there was an eight (8) day Week of Sabbaths. The big question has always been the “fourteenth day” from what (the reason April 3rd is the crucifixion)? What day was Abib 1st? Even though Exodus never says so, everyone familiar (even remedially) knows all solar calendars are based on equinoxes or solstices (spring, summer, fall, winter). Abib (harvest) 1st was the autumnal equinox “when ye have gathered in the fruit of the land” (Leviticus 23:39); you might notice today Easter is a spring event. We infer from Moses descriptions that originally the month we call March had 31 days (Feast of Unleavened Bread) as did the original month we call September (Feast of Tabernacles) making the equinox’s 21st day events.

Because of the statement in Matthew 26:17 (“first day of the feast of unleavened bread”) an assumption is made that the “Sabbath Week” encompassed eight (8) days (3rd through 10th of April; Exodus 12:14-20). In reality, the eight (8) days were composed of a rotation of day designations because each successive year (different calendar), Passover/Easter was delegated a different day of the week. Blackburn and Streven’s THE OXFORD COMPANION TO THE YEAR, p. 566 says: “In the New Testament Greek “the first day of the week”, that on which Jesus rises, is “(day) one of the Sabbath(s)”; but when the Church adapted the Jewish week for its own purposes, the first day became “the Lord’s day” (Rev. 1:10), and constituted a weekly celebration of the Resurrection.” Because of this modern interpretation, Passover/Easter could actually fall on the 21st day from the vernal equinox (eighth Sabbath); you can see this shift of days in Leviticus 23:33-36. In reality the Bible does not support a lunar Easter, but determines a solar vernal designation (14th day), from the 21st of March (counting inclusively). Since Jesus Christ was Crucified on April 3rd, A.D. 31, you can count backwards inclusively to determine the exact day of the Biblical Mosaic Authorized Vernal Equinox (perpetually).

In Exodus the Feast of Unleavened Bread began the solar day preceding the Exodus. At midnight (12:00 am) the Passover occurred; the Pharaoh “rose up in the night” and threw the Israelites out of Egypt. These events are all recorded in the 12th chapter of Exodus. This is the story being repeated by the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, 1500 odd years later. Jesus Christ was up all night just as the Israelites were. So far, the 2 day and 2 night story sounds authentic, but is it true?


In Exodus 12:14-19 the Feast of Unleavened Bread begins the fourteenth (14th) day of Abib (October 3rd) from the autumnal equinox and runs through the twenty-first (21st) day; an eight (8) day Passover week. A few months in the desert heat and Leviticus 23:4-8 states the Feast of Unleavened Bread begins on the fifteenth (15th) day (October 4th) from the autumnal equinox. Wow, that’s unusual. This is of course a big problem, especially after “ye shall keep it a feast to the Lord throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever.” Exodus 12:14. That didn’t last long. Since September has 30 days and March has 31 days, it would require this change if you were to make the Feast of Unleavened Bread a spring event, using the Julian calendar and making it include the eighth (8th) Sabbath.

The confusion created in the Gospels is caused by writers not identifying what calendar or year is determining the days. Every reference of time in Matthew’s Gospel (chapters 26,27,28) must be identified as to time and type of day to confirm the mathematical crucifixion. Matthew was using the Julian calendar #5 for A.D. 33 to document these events which happened between 9:00 am Wednesday and Friday evening at 6:00 pm (April 1st – April 3rd, A.D. 31); talk about confusion:

  1. 26:2 “after two days” – about breakfast (9:00 am) Wed, April 1st, A.D 33.
  2. 26:6 “Jesus was in Bethany” – about lunch time (12:00 pm) Wed, April 1st, A.D. 33.
  3. 26:14 “Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests” – same day as above.
  4. 26:17 “first day of the feast of unleavened bread” – Jewish feast (6:00 pm) Thursday, April 2nd, A.D. 33.
  5. 26:20 “Now when the even was come” – Jewish twilight (maybe 7:00 pm) Thursday, April 2nd, A.D 33.
  6. 26:26 “as they were eating” – Feast of Unleavened Bread (maybe 9:00 pm) Thursday, April 2nd, A.D. 33.
  7. 26:36 “Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane” – (maybe 10:00 pm) Thursday, April 2nd, A.D. 33.
  8. 26:47 “while he yet spake” – (maybe 11:00 pm) Thursday, April 2nd, A.D. 33.
  9. 27:1 “When the morning was come” – (6:00 am) Friday, April 3rd, A.D. 33.
  10. 27:36 “And they crucified him” – (9:00 am) Friday, April 3rd, A.D. 33.

Matthew didn’t know what day or year Jesus Christ was born. Matthew didn’t know calendar rotations or the 33-year 12,053 day solar system rotation. Neither did he identify what year the Crucifixion happened; he just lined up the Feast of Unleavened Bread with a Friday not realizing it would later identify a day and year in the Julian calendar. This is the most confusing beast a person can tackle. If I get it right it will be inspired.

The Romans had Jesus on the cross by 9:00 am and he was dead by approximately the ninth hour (3 pm) before the Passover started. All neat and tidy if you were part of the Sanhedrin. Therefore, confirming the day Jesus died (preparation day), “Now the next day, that followed the day of the preparation,…we remember that that deceiver said, while he was yet alive,” (Matt. 27:62,63). This description of the crucifixion is not consistent with the Julian calendar’s April 3rd, A.D 31 Wednesday; it’s a Friday in the Gospels. It is very important to recognize that “in the glorious holy mountain” (Dan. 11:45) is another calendar to determine days of the week other than the official Roman calendar, based on the April 3rd position as 14 days from the vernal equinox (March 21st, Mosaic Law). Very confusing is that Kepler’s Laws determine the Ephemeris calendar has only 30 days in March, but it didn’t happen until the 17th Century.


Probably the most recognized event time-wise involving the crucifixion in the gospels is the statement “In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulcher.” (Matt. 28:1). This same statement with variations is recorded in all four gospels, so you know it was recognized as absolute gospel truth. It’s obvious that if Jesus Christ was in the process of crucifixion at 9:00 am on Sunday morning, Mary couldn’t have gone to his tomb earlier at 6:00 am that morning to visit him. Also you find “Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.” (John 20:19).

Someone started the A.D. 33 association with the Crucifixion and it stuck. They knew the 33-year solar system rotation and assumed the Creator would mimic that rotation; to this day most people swear it’s true. So, the disciples recognized the two (2) extra day’s rotation that obviously took place in front of their eyes causing them to slide the A.D. 31 Wednesday into a Friday Crucifixion and designate A.D. 33 as the Crucifixion year in the Julian calendar.

Great substantial events occurred during this interlude: 1.) Herod’s wife’s dream (Matt. 27:19). 2.) Darkness (Matt. 27:45). 3.) Earth quaked, rocks rent (Matt. 27:51). 4.) Graves opened, saints arose (Matt. 27: 52). Even if the disciples weren’t aware of the circumstances of the Creator’s actions during the crucifixion, others were (Matt. 27:54). But, from Friday’s crucifixion until Sunday morning isn’t three (3) days and three (3) night’s time. “For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.” (Matt. 12:40).

The disciples had to know about the three (3) days importance, it was the immediate legal reason for Jesus’ supposed blasphemous condemnation (Matt. 26:61). Jesus told them five (5) different times about the three (3) days (Matt. 12:40; 16:21; 17:23; 20:19; 26:61). Mary would have had to arrive at the tomb on Monday evening (6:00 pm, Jewish beginning of day). They claimed they didn’t know (John 20:9); but, they all had to know about it and talk about it because Stephen the Martyr’s Hebrews (most likely written in A.D. 31) is all about the new priesthood that produced the new day of rest. Luke records Cleopas as confirming to the Lord himself it was the third (3rd) day (Luke 24:21), yet fails to identify the exact day for posterity (Luke 24:1). Peter knew, he tells you what Christ did while dead (1 Peter 3:18-22). Rendering Matt. 28:1 as “first day of the week” is indicative of the action the Gospel writers took as accurate. There was so much confusion about the timing of the Day of Resurrection that traditionally it caused the Gospel writers to hold their manuscripts for 30 years (about A.D. 60) before finally releasing them (they were getting old).


The story translated in the Gospels about the timing of the Day of Resurrection isn’t correct. We know Jesus Christ was crucified in the morning hours (9:00 am; Mark 15:25) and died in the afternoon (about 3:00 pm; Matt. 27:45), all on the same day – Sunday April 3rd, A.D. 31 Millennium Ephemeris calendar #2. We also know Jesus Christ definitively stated he would be “three days and three nights in the heart of the earth” (Matt. 12:40; the sign). This doesn’t allow Mary to see Jesus in his resurrected body at dawn on Sunday morning.

The math again is simple. Add three days to 12053 + 3 = 12056. 12056/7 = 0.2857; Tuesday 1/7 = 0.1428; Wednesday 2/7 = 0.2857, again bingo. The timing of the Day of Resurrection was Wednesday April 6th, A.D. 31 Millennium Ephemeris calendar #2, about 6:00 pm; or Friday April 6th, A.D. 31 Julian calendar #2, at about 6:00 pm. All of these Ephemeris and Julian calendar events happened during the eight (8) day Jewish Week of Sabbaths. You will notice in the Gospels no one identified which Sabbath day during the Week of Sabbaths they were talking about. You will also notice the timing of Mary’s arrival at the tomb in Matt. 28:1 does not match anything of mathematical or prophetical reality. Matthew 28:1 may be the most important and misrepresentative verse in the Bible.

Like parsing a sentence, the Jewish Sanhedrin analyzed the determination of daylight and darkness at the ending and beginning of their 6:00 pm day. During a year’s time twilight arrived at significantly different times in relationship to 6:00 pm in the evening. Sometimes (winter) it was already dark by 6:00 pm in the evening and sometimes (summer) it was quite bright yet. This gave rise to a very strange translation of the first words of Matt. 28:1 in the Concordant Bible – “Now it is the evening of the Sabbaths”. This is the true description of when Mary arrived at the tomb of Jesus. This statement is a description of the relationship between when darkness fell in relationship to the 6:00 pm start of the next Sabbath day. Basically Mary arrived at the tomb of Christ before 6:00 pm in the evening of Wednesday April 6th, A.D. 31 Millennium Ephemeris calendar #2. The clincher is: “from even unto even shall ye celebrate your sabbath” (Leviticus 23:32).

The two (2) Mary’s got the message of the three (3) days. Even people walking by the crucifixion site got the story of “three days”, they “cast the same in his teeth” (Matt. 27:39,40,44). Miracles happen and it leaves people speechless, but the disciples could count and they knew about Jonah, and they definitively knew what day and time Mary went to the tomb and what day Jesus appeared to them (John 20:19). It proved the blasphemous charge against Jesus Christ was false. This was the most important point that could be made about Jesus Christ’s life in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. If Jesus Christ didn’t raise himself from the grave when he said he would (three days and nights), there is no salvation; the whole thing is a waste of time. I’m counting on the Creator’s resurrection; the very reason I’m writing this book. Just as modern geologists don’t believe in catastrophism, the disciples must have thought this story to weird or fantastic to include in their precious manuscripts.

Of course we find the fact is it’s a modern mistranslation of terms. The only place you can read about it is in A. E. Knoch’s notes of the Concordant Version of The Sacred Scriptures. Notes and text of Matthew’s gospel chapter 28 show “At the lighting up into one of the Sabbaths” (6:00 pm; Matt. 28:1). This is very controversial. It raises the question about whether these Biblical writers really believed in Jesus Christ at all. They refused to identify the Day of Resurrection. The disciples refused to identify Jesus Christ as God by refusing to identify the day he rose, the very day he appeared before them (way more insidious than Peter’s denial). The three (3) hours of darkness definitely pointed to three (3) days to the resurrection. Even if the disciples, being unsure about which day, had claimed the 6:00 pm Monday night resurrection it would have validated the three (3) days to Romans using the Julian calendar; maybe society would have straightened out the calendar 2,000 years ago. Stephen the Martyr did it right by writing Hebrews but paid for it with his life, and the cunning Saul of Tarsus stole his manuscript as he died. A very disastrous beginning for Christianity.


Why was it necessary for the earth to rotate two (2) extra times while Jesus was on the cross? We begin with the most unrecognized liar in the history of the world; Joshua of Jericho fame. Really, he’s not even mentioned in Hebrews 12 (faith chapter) as being present; an obvious overt snub. Hosea 9:11-17 is the worst railing accusation against any Israelite in its history. Even though not mentioned by name it screams out Joshua!!! This blatant Satanic liar claimed to be on the “mount” of God with Moses (Exodus 24:12,13; 32:17,18). God said, “Moses alone shall come near the Lord” (Exodus 24:2). God also said, “whosoever toucheth the mount shall be surely put to death: There shall not an hand touch it, but he shall surely be stoned, or shot through; whether it be beast or man, it shall not live:” (Exodus 19:12,13). Who are you going to believe? Neither Joshua nor Aaron ever touched the mount of God or they would have been dead.

This totally depraved deceiver edited Moses’ writings. He added his name and Aaron’s name (Exodus 19:24) to try and convince you oDayofCrucifixionf its authenticity. It doesn’t pass the smell test. Joshua’s story is so fraudulent in Joshua 5:13-15 that the other anti-Christ Saul of Tarsus decided to incorporate it into his biography (Acts 9:3-25). Just for a little added flair, anti-Christ Saul changed his name to Paul (Acts 13:9). Saul (a clever con-man) upon reading Joshua’s fraudulent story decided – gee I can spot a con man and I can do that too. Saul had already stolen Stephen the Martyrs Hebrews manuscript and later added the obvious spurious 13th chapter. Aaron clearly wasn’t on the mount of God (“the calf which Aaron made” 32:35) as Moses accused him of sacrilege upon his return off the mount (Exodus 32:21-28). The two days were erased at Moses’ Exodus, (Joshua 10:12-15 is a total fabrication, Hebrews 4:8).

The earth revolved around the sun during the Exodus but didn’t rotate. It apparently was hit by an asteroid and moved up and down (north and south) and changed obliquity. This is the reason the earth rotated twice in A.D. 31 in a three (3) hours span of time, to correct chronology and chronometry. The mathematics required a two (2) day addition as has been shown repeatedly. “Thus saith the Lord; If my covenant be not with day and night, and if I have not appointed the ordinances of heaven and earth; Then will I cast away the seed of Jacob and David my servant,” (Jeremiah 33:25,26). It’s a promise so you know the Creator is in charge and his program will continue. Also, it is proof positive that astrophysics is in control of our destiny – the calendar equals civilization. Joshua tried to steal this provenance from Moses, the Prophet of God! The book of Joshua in the Bible is a complete joke (Hosea said so).
