What about Wed?

A Wed crucifixion probably most popular belief behind Friday as day of crucifixion.  While Friday is impossible to get 3 days and 3 nights, with Wed it is possible.

 

Those that hold to this belief  believe the resurrection took place on the 7th day or Sabbath.

 

PROBLEM #1:  The 6th day would not have been a Sabbath so why did the women not go to the tomb to anoint the body?   Why did they wait until the 1st day of the week?

 

PROBLEM #4:  Jesus is not the First Fruits.  With Wed, three days and three nights means resurrection did not take place on First Fruits.  First Fruits takes place  the day after the Sabbath during Passover, the Sabbath being the 15th of Nisan the First day of Festival of Unleavened Bread.

 

With Thursday crucifixion Jesus is First Fruits because the 2 Sabbaths in a row push this festival to the 1st day of week or Resurrection Sunday.

                                                            WEDNESDAY CRUCIFIXION

PROBLEM #2:  With resurrection on the 7th day or

our Saturday, what did Jesus do  Saturday until seen

by Mary Magdalene around dawn on first day of week

(Sunday)? 

 

 All accounts points to Mary as being first to see Jesus

 and appears to have just occurred as Jesus says he

has not yet ascended to the Father.

 

(John 20:17) Jesus *said to her, "Stop clinging to Me, for I have

 not yet ascended to the Father;

 but go to My brethren and say to them, 'I ascend to My Father

 and your Father, and My God

 and your God.'''NASB


PROBLEM #3:  Disciples on road to Emmaus on the 1st

day state it is the 3rd day

since these things happened.  With a Wednesday

crucifixion these disciples on

Sunday would have said its the 4th day.

(Luke 24:20) and how the chief priests and our rulers

delivered Him to the sentence of death,

 and crucified Him.

(Luke 24:21) "But we were hoping that it was He who was

 going to redeem Israel. Indeed,

 besides all this, it is the third day since these things happened.

NASB

                       THURSDAY CRUCIFIXION

Scripture shows Jesus fulfilling the Festivals exactly,

 but with a Wednesday crucifixion 

he would not.   Why would Jesus not fulfill First

Fruits?

 

(1Co 15:20-23) But now Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who are asleep.

 For since by a man came death, by a man also came the resurrection of the dead.

 For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive.

But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits, after that those who are Christ's at His coming. ,NASB
