Crucifixion Week Simply Proves Yahuah Elohim's Pure Calendar; and the Tampering/Gross Mistranslation of New Testament Scriptures Exposed.

Messiah Crucifixion
A simple chronological read in the Book of Matthew in the right context of Yahuah Elohim's Pure Calendar; and knowing two very critical key translation errors reveals obvious tampering or gross mistranslation in what we have inherited as the "New" Testament, which is better translated as the Renewed Testament.  It seems this tampering has to do with an attempt to make the Scriptures appear to portray a Sunday resurrection.  In essence, it created a confusion that is so pervasive but yet so simple to uncover.  To understand this, your only requirement is a high school grade of an "A" or "B" in English.  You do not have to be a scholar or language expert to figure it out - once the issues are revealed to you .  Do you qualify? if so, read on.

The four Gospels- Matthew, Mark, Luke and John are generally redundant in the stories told.  Read them in order in a span of a week if you don't believe me.  Why did Yahuah Elohim do this?  My insight is - He did it to mitigate any tampering to the Scriptures so that one day, what was hidden by evil men in power, may be revealed.

Your only requirement to easily and clearly understand what is obvious, is to read the last three chapters of Matthew; 26, 27 and 28 and then read the same parallel chapters in Mark, Luke and John.  Key Scriptures reveal timing of events and their chronological order.  The select events are highlighted in the calendar below and any smart high school student with a grade of an A or B in English can easily map out Matthew 26, 27 and 28 in chronological order of days.  This will be our benchmark for comparison against the last chapters of the other books about the crucifixion; Mark (chapters 14, 15 & 16), Luke (chapters 22, 23 & 24) and John (chapters 18, 19, 20 & 21).

Mark, Luke and John redundantly speak of the same events in Matthew with some additional detail as well as lack of detail.  By reading the same parallel chapters, it is easy to verify the anchor points of time before mapping them to a calendar.  At first it doesn't matter if you use a Gregorian calendar, or a traditional Jewish calendar for mapping the sequence of events to sequence of days.  The initial goal is to map the events to a sequence of days.  Once this is established, we can overlay those days upon any calendar format.  In this case, I overlayed it upon Yahuah Elohim's Pure Calendar as well as a traditional Jewish calendar.  You should already know that the traditional Jewish calendar overlays lunar months over Gregorian based solar months.  Once I overlayed the sequence of events like I noted, voila, everything begins to fall in place.  I have known these facts for over twelve years; now, it seems I have the time and ability to reveal it to everyone else.  Let me present and simply explain:

In order to recognize the obvious tampering of the Scriptures, you must first realize that there are two schools of thought on observation of the Passover.  It is either observed on the 14th of Nisan or the 15th of Nisan.  Those who observe Passover on the 14th of Nisan, keep the first day of Feast of Unleavened Bread on the 15th of Nisan, the day after what they believe is Passover. Those who observe Passover on the 15th of Nisan begin the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread on the same night.

Crucifixion Week

In Matthew 26:17, it is written, "Now on the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying to Him, 'Where do You want us to prepare for You to eat the Passover?' "  As you can easily see from the way the text reads, outside of the context of the chapter, it is the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread and the Disciples appear to be asking for what to do next to prepare the Passover meal.  This means that that the Messiah and His Disciples appear to keep the Passover on the 15th of Nisan as they start the first day of Feast of Unleavened Bread.

In context of a subsequent verse which clues us in on the timing of this event, where it is asked about preparing the Passover meal, we find that it happens sometime during what appears to be Nisan 15.  Shortly after in Matthew 26:20, it reads "When evening had come, He sat down with the twelve." So far, from the way the story reads, it is the evening of a Biblical day and it is suppose to be the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread.

The only interpretation here that is valid so far is; the Messiah and Disciples are going to keep the Passover the very same night of the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread because it is when they break the bread and wine.  Based on the way the story reads up to now, they appear to be eating the Passover mealExclusively in this context, we can see it has to be Nisan 15 and not Nisan 14.  Why? because, had they planned to keep the Passover on Nisan 14, the question will not be asked, "Where do You want us to prepare for You to eat the Passover?"  Those who keep the Passover on Nisan 14 expect to keep the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread the next day.  They have no reason to ask the question about preparing for the Passover because if one follows this school of thought to keep Passover on Nisan 14, they already kept the Passover.

Is it confusing? yes it is if you do not pay close attention.  But it is very clear if you do pay attention.  Without any other context, they appear to be keeping the Passover meal on Nisan 15 when they start the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread.  However, we will easily find that this is not so at all.  This is the first red flag exposing either tampering or gross mistranslation.

Up to now, we have to conclude that Messiah and His Disciples clearly followed the school of thought to keep the Passover on Nisan 15 and not Nisan 14.  This way, the question can logically be asked, "Where do You want us to prepare for You to eat the Passover?"  The question is asked in light of the fact that the Scripture say that it was the "first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread."  This means that the evening that starts the Passover is the same evening that starts the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread.

If you read the rest of Matthew 26 and 27, it is quickly realized that the evening that the Messiah and His Disciples were speaking of "preparing for the Passover" was actually the beginning of a Biblical day called the the "Day of Preparation."  The key anchor verse that reveals this is Matthew 27:62 which reads, "On the next day, which followed the Day of Preparation..."  This phrase is timed the morning after Messiah is tombed.  It tells us that the day before was called the "Day of Preparation."  What events took place on the "Day of Preparation?"  That was the day of the crucifixion events.  What is the "Day of Preparation?".  It is a phrase that points to the Friday before the weekly Saturday Sabbath in context of a traditional Jewish calendar.  It is a day to prepare for the Sabbath on what is traditionally, Saturday.  That means the Gregorian day called the "Day of Preparation" was a Friday.  If the Gregorian day was a Friday when the crucifixion took place, then the day before has to be a Thursday.  This quickly tells us that the evening when Messiah and His disciples broke the bread and wine was a Thursday evening.  At this point, we have a sequence of Gregorian weekdays clearly mapped out in light of the crucifixion story.  The calendar above maps the crucifixion events by cross referencing key verses in chronological order by Gregorian days.

Further chronological reading of the Scripures reveal that it was on Thursday, late night, that Messiah was taken prisoner at Gethsemane.  The following day was Friday or "Day of Preparation."  On this day in the early morning hours just after midnight, Messiah was being questioned by the High Priest, and Peter follows Him.  As events take place, the rooster crows in the early morning hours of Friday, "Day of Preparation."  Later, in those early morning hours of Friday, "Day of Preparation," Pilate tries Messiah and He is crucified.  Between the 6th and 9th hours on Friday, He dies and there is a major earthquake.  As the traditonal Jewish Saturday Sabbath approaches, on Friday evening, Joseph gets the Messiah and tombs Him.  The timing is just right because the Jewish authorities did not want to have Messiah hanging on a cross on the traditional Jewish Sabbath Day.  We can confirm this by cross-referencing John 19:31 which reads, "Therefore, because it was the Preparation Day, that the bodies should not remain on the cross on the Sabbath..."  There is more that John 19:31 reveals exposing the red flag above and I will address that next.

Here is the big red flag exposing the tampering or gross mistranslation.  If we read the verses so far in the context of a Gregorian calendar or traditional Jewish calendar, we have no choice but to conclude Messiah was crucified on the 6th day of the week or Friday between the 6th and 9th hours; and that Friday was the 1st Day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread; and it was Nisan 15, Passover; and it was also the "Day of Preparation."  In this context, the Disciples broke the bread and wine on Thursday night as Friday was approaching.  In light of this, the Scriptures, as they read so far, make it appear that Yeshua kept the Passover on the evening of Thursday that year which began Nisan 15.  In essence, the High Sabbath of the Passover appears to be on Friday with the weekly traditional Sabbath being on Saturday.  A "High Sabbath" or a "High Day" is a Sabbath of a Feast Day such as Passover, Yom Kippur, etc. 

The Scriptures reveal that the established Rabbis were very concerned about a dead body being displayed on the cross or killing Messiah "..during the Feast, lest there be an uproar.." (Mathew 26:5) and or the Sabbath (John 19:31).  So far, the Scriptures, as they read plainly in Matthew without any other context show Messiah crucified on a High Sabbath, Nisan 15 (Passover) on Friday (Day of Preparation) and also the first day of Feast of Unleavened Bread.  Without any other context, we have a situation where both Friday is a Sabbath (the High Sabbath of Passover) and the following Saturday is a Sabbath, the weekly traditional Saturday sabbath.  This is a big red flag and cannot be so as the Scriptures appear to reveal.  We discover this when the Scriptures are read in greater context.

This tell me that the verse, "Now on the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread..." (Mathew 26:17) is either grossly mis-translated or has been tampered with because there is no way that the establishment of Rabbis would have caused the crucifixion of Messiah to occur "..during the feast, let there be an uproar among the people..." and on the Sabbath as the Scriptures appear to portray.  The clear conclusion is that Mathew 26:17 is tampered with or is a gross mistranslation.

The only possible scenario at this point is that Messiah was crucified on the Friday, "Day of Preparation," before the traditional weekly Sabbath of Saturday; and Saturday was also the Passover that year in Israel.  Let's revisit John 19:31 which fully reads, "Therefore, because it was the Preparation Day, that the bodies should not remain on the cross on the Sabbath (for that Sabbath was a high day), the Jews asked Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away."  The phrase, "...that Sabbbath was a high day..." means that it was a Sabbath of the Passover or "high day."  Note that Messiah already passed away so His legs were not broken.  As Friday ended, Messiah was tombed that evening before it got darker (which would have started the traditional Saturday weekly Sabbath).  His first day in the grave was a Saturday, a traditional weekly Sabbath.  That year, Saturday was also the Passover as revealed by the phrase, "...for that Sabbath was a high day...".  Messiah's first day in the grave was on Passover and it was a SaturdayThis cannot be disputed.  So far, based on the Scriptures referenced, our conclusion is clear and evident.  However, there is even more to establish the events as they are currently mapped to the Gregorian days and Jewish Feast days.  I will present them later.

At this point, take a close look at the calendar above and you will find the events mapped out as described.  However, we still have not addressed the dates of the Biblical month.  Let's revisit the two schools of thought on Passover - is it Nisan 14 or 15?  I testify the Scriptures clearly establish Passover on Nisan 15 (that is another teaching).  Based on this school of thought, therefore, we can map Saturday to Nisan 15 in the year of the crucifixion in Israel.  Once this is done, everything falls in order.  If you try to map Nisan 14 to Saturday, then things run in disorder.  Try it yourself.

At this point, the question must be raised - if Saturday was Passover, then what was the Messiah and His Disciples doing on Thursday night breaking bread and wine?  What is the significance of this?  At first, it appeared to be the Passover Seder but in reality, it is not.  Because it was Thursday night, they obviously were not breaking bread and wine for the Sabbath because such a social gathering takes place on Friday evenings as the Sabbath begins.  The only context that brings meaning to this event of the Messiah gathered with His Disciples on Thursday evening is in the context of Yahuah Elohim's Pure Calendar and where Nisan 15, is mapped to Saturday the year of the crucifixion.

In this context, you will find that Messiah and His Disciples were gathered together on the evening of the 6th day of the Biblical week (this corresponds with Thursday the year of the crucifixion).  They were gathered in the knowledge that Messiah will be crucified as the Passover Lamb the next day, on the 7th day of the Biblical week (this corresponds with Friday the year of the crucifixion).  In the year of the crucifixion, Friday, coincided with the 7th day of the Biblical week which was also Nisan 14 when all other lambs were being slaughtered.  Nisan 14 is the day the lambs are slaughtered and prepared for roasting on a spit and this takes several hours to do when roasting a whole lamb over a fire pit.  It appears the Disciples knew they were gathering together for the breaking of bread and wine for the Biblical Sabbath (not the traditional weekly Sabbath). 

In it's proper context, Messiah was crucified on Yahuah Elohim's true Sabbath day - the 7th day of the Biblical week.  He was also crucified on the 14th day of the Biblical month (Nisan 14) when all other Passover lambs were being slaughtered.  That evening (Nisan 15 - Passover), His first night in the tomb; corresponded to when the Angel of Death presented itself during the Exodus of Moses as well.  Messiah's first night in the tomb also corresponds with the evening of the Passover meal.  Nisan 15 began the first of the three days and three nights.  In it's proper context, Nisan 15 is also the first day of the Biblical week (see calendar above).  That means Messiah rose "on the third" day as in a sequence of days as well as on the "Third Day" as in the numbered day of the Biblical week.  When Messiah arose, He rose on the 17th day of the pure Biblical month - and you will find that many major events occur on th 17th of the Biblical months (search the Scriptures - especially about Noah's Ark and the arrival of the Hebrews at Mt. Sinai).  The Ark came to rest on the 17th of the month (Exodus 8:4) and it was on the 17th of the month of Sivan (third month) that the Torah was spoken (Exodus 19:1, 19:16).  In Noah's time, the 7th month was really the month of Nisan because the year began in Tishri instead of Nisan, and therefore, the Ark rested on Nisan 17, the same month and day that Messiah rose from the grave.

That year, Messiah and the Disciples were celebrating what is traditionally known as Shabbat HaGadol when they broke the bread and the wine. This is the "Great Sabbath" and is the weekly Sabbath preceding the Passover.  In the year of the crucifixion, on context of Yahuah Elohim's Pure Calendar, thursday corresponded with the 6th day of the Biblical week (see the calendar above) and this makes the evening of the 6th day of the Biblical week the beginning of the 7th day or true Sabbath that year.  In the year of the crucifixion, this is evidence that Messiah and His Disciples were keeping the pure Biblical lunar based calendar. They kept Shabbat HaGadol, as the 7th day of the Biblical week began (in context of Yahuah Elohim's Pure Calendar) knowing Messiah was going to be the Passover Lamb the next day on Nisan 14 (Friday) and be killed before the real Passover could be kept since He was the Passover Lamb.  All this only makes sense in context of the correct calendar framework which you must understand at http://SolomonsPorch.TV/Calendar.aspx.

The chronology I outline above also fits the pattern revealed in the Scriptures where it is written, "You know that after two days is the Passover, and the Son of Man will be delivered up to be crucified," (Matthew 26:2).  In light of the clear mapping of events-to-days, we can establish that this Scripture belongs on the Gregorian Wednesday which coincided with Day 5 of the Biblical week, the year of the crucifixion.

Matthew 26:2 could not have taken place before Day 5 or Wednesday.  Why? because the crucifixion took place on Friday.  Placing the timing of this verse before Day 5 or Wednesday negates the meaning of a part of the verse, "the Son of Man will be delivered up to be crucified."  The only way this verse can be established as the Scriptures read is that it must take place on Day 5 or Wednesday of the year of crucifixion.  Once this is done, we see that "after two days...the Son of Man will be delivered up to be crucified."  It is just another verse confirming a Saturday Passover in the year of the crucifixion because, the verse also reads "..after two days is the Passover...". 

The observation and analysis above easily proves that the phrase, "Now on the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread..." is grossly mis-translated or has been grossly tampered with.  It also proves that the breaking of the bread and wine did not occur on a Passover day.  It occurred at the begining of "Day of Preparation," Thursday evening as Friday was about to begin at midnight.  The traditional weekly breaking of bread and wine occurs on Friday evenings, not Thursday evenings.

So far, the chronological order of the Scriptures in Matthew in regards to the crucifixion as understood in the context of a traditional Jewish calendar exposes a gross mistranslation or tampering.  The breaking of the bread and wine only make sense in the context of Yahuah Elohim's Pure Calendar.  The fullness of the meaning of chronological events are better understood only in the context of Yahuah Elohim's Pure Calendar.

The reading of verses in the final chapter 28 of Matthew is where the timing gets tricky and another gross mistranslation or possible tampering of the Scriptures can no longer be understood in the context of a traditional Jewish calendar which incoporates the solar-Gregorian calendar.  This context fails at this point.  This is where Yahuah Elohim's Pure Calendar, and the Counting of the Omer in this context, brings to light the totality of the events of crucifixion "week."

Matthew 28:1 reads, "Now after the Sabbath, as the first day of the week began to dawn, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to see the tomb."  In the context of the timing of key events established, mapped and discussed so far; this verse is grossly out of place and will be the verse than can only be intrepreted in the context of Yahuah Elohim's Pure Calendar once the translation error is corrected.

The phrasing of this verse, in the context of a Gregorian calendar and/or Traditional Jewish calendar, can only place the timing of the event on the Sunday after Messiah spent His first day in the tomb.  Obviously, this timing cannot be so because Messiah is in the tomb only one day and not three, in this context.  It does not work.  The phrase "After the Sabbath" can only point to Sunday as the Scriptures read (without correction).  Remember, in the year of the crucifixion, the weekly traditional Sabbath (Saturday) and Sabbath of the Passover is the same day.  Therefore, the phrase, "After the Sabbath" can only mean Sunday as the Scriptures read (without correction).  The phrase " ...first day of the week..." also can only mean Sunday in the context of a Gregorian calendar and/or Traditional Jewish calendar.  Is there an agenda here? Again, a big red flag.

The only way this verse is understood correctly is when it is translated as follows,"Now after the Sabbath, as the first count of Shavuot (weeks) began..."  The only way, at this point, to place the correct timing of this verse is in the context of Yahuah Elohim's Pure Calendar and the proper Counting of the Omer where the 50th day lands on Sivan 15 and the Counting of the Omer begins on the first day of the Biblical week after the weekly Biblical 7th day Sabbath (and not the traditional Saturday Sabbath).

The calendar above shows where the timing of the verse must be placed and when the counting of the Omer begins.  As you can see, the verse Matthew 28:1, when placed in its proper context, makes sense.  "Now after the Sabbath..." means- after the true Sabbath of the 21st day of the Biblical month (observe the calendar above).  The corrected phrase, "...the first count of Shavuot (weeks)..." places the counting of the omer where it was meant to be and in agreement with the way the Scriptures read. For a detailed study on the Counting of the Omer go to Teachings > Restoration of the True Sabbath.

In light of this, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary waited about a week before checking up on Messiah's tomb since His burial.  Remember, many were still in unbelief in the fullness of what the Messiah was conveying; so it is not surprising the ladies waited about a week before checking the tomb.  When the Disciples saw that He had risen, still some doubted.  Even Mary thought the Romans took Messiah away out of His tomb (see John 20:2).  They were not expecting to look for Him after three days.

How can we tell that the day Mary saw Messiah was the firstfruits and the first day of the counting of the omer on Nisan 22?  John 20:17 gives us a hint, where it is written, "Jesus said to her, 'Do not cling to Me, for I have not yet ascended to My Father; but go to My brethren and say to them, 'I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God.'"  The Scriptures reveal that Messiah resurrected from His tomb on the Third Day of the Biblical week, Nisan 17 as well as the third day as in a sequence of days.  We can reasonably concluded that Messiah remained in secret for four days until He was seen by Mary Magdalene on Nisan 22, the first day of the counting of the omerThese four days correspond symbolically to the 4,000 years that Messiah remained in secret until He revealed Himself to Israel.  All this can only be understood clearly in light of Yahuah Elohim's Pure Calendar and the proper counting of the omer.

Here are two more sets of verses that establish the timing of the events as I have clearly proved above:

This verse further establishes the Passover took place after the crucifixion.  Read John 18:28, "Then they lead Jesus from Caiaphas to the Praetorium, and it was early morning.  But they themselves did not go into the Praetorium, lest they should be defiled, but that they might eat the Passover." This verse is about the occasion of the morning after the Messiah was apprehended away from His disciples after they broke the bread and wine.  Notice, the Passover has not yet arrived according the the traditional Jewish calendar observed at that time- which is still used today.

John 18:39 further establishes the fact the Passover took place after the crucifixion, "But you have a custom that I should release someone to you at the Passover.  Do you therefore want me to release to you the King of the Jews?"  This was the event where Pilate is trying Messiah on Friday.  In the year of the crucifixion, it was the day before the weekly traditional Saturday Sabbath and the day before the Sabbath of the Passover.  These two days were on the same day the year of the crucifixion.  Pilate was asking this question the day before the Passover.
