Morning to Evening Day Reckoning According to Yahusha's Crucifixion

January 25, 2017
Appointed Times

The story of Yahusha's crucifixion shows us clearly that a Day starts in the morning. There are dozens of verses in the Scriptures that prove this. So the Evening to Evening Day reckoning is easily disproved as a tradition of the Pharisees coming directly from Babylon. Let us use our Yahuah-given brains and logic and accept truth rather than the tradition of men!

Arrest at Gethsemane at Night

Judas then, having taken a detachment of soldiers and officers from the chief priests and the Pharisees, came there with lanterns, torches, and weapons.

- John 18:3

Obviously, Yahusha was arrested at Night (Darkness) as Judas and the soldiers came out to Getshemane with lanterns and torches.

At the Sanhedrin

Now when morning had come, all the chief priests and the elders of the people took counsel against Jesus to put him to death:

- Matthew 27:1

Immediately in the morning the chief priests, with the elders and scribes, and the whole council, held a consultation, and bound Jesus, and carried him away, and delivered him up to Pilate.

- Mark 15:1

As soon as it was day, the assembly of the elders of the people was gathered together, both chief priests and scribes, and they led him away into their council, saying,

- Luke 22:66

Clearly, after the arrest at Night (Darkness) comes Day (Light). Matthew says "when morning had come", Mark says "Immediately in the morning" and John says "As soon as it was day". Since all three of them talk about the same point of time in the story we must logically conclude that morning starts a Day (Light)!

Yahusha dies on the tree

It was now about the sixth hour, and darkness came over the whole land until the ninth hour.

- Luke 23:44

According to the Evening to Evening Day (Light) reckoning the 6th hour would be

6pm (start of the day) + 6 hours (6th hour) = Midnight

6pm (start of the day) + 9 hours (9th hour) = 3am

That means darkness came over the whole land from Midnight to 3am. But Midnight to 3am is dark by default!

It makes no sense unless the Day (Light) starts in the morning.

6am (start of the day) + 6 hours (6th hour) = 12pm

6am (start of the day) + 9 hours (9th hour) = 3pm

12pm to 3pm is Day (Light) by default and so darkness coming over the whole land was a sign. Which was the point.

So why did they had to take Yahusha off the tree "before" the Sabbath?

"Before the Shabbath" starts does not mean the Shabbath starts at Evening. Evening is before the next Morning, too, and at Night people don't work. So "before the Shabbath" means, before Morning (since at Night we shall not work).

Also, the reason they had to take the body off the tree is because it is commanded here:

If a man has committed a sin worthy of death, and he is put to death, and you hang him on a tree; his body shall not remain all night on the tree, but you shall surely bury him the same day; for he who is hanged is accursed of God; that you don’t defile your land which Yahuah your God gives you for an inheritance.

- Deuteronomy 21:22-23

Yahusha in the Tomb

For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the whale, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

Matthew 12:40

If a Day is 24 hours according to the Pharisee Evening to Evening Day reckoning we'd have to conclude the following:

3 days (3 days + 3 nights) + 3 nights = 3 days and 6 nights

Does this make any sense at all? No! Yahuah divided the Day from the Darkness and woe to those who mix the two together! The Day is from Morning to Evening, and the Night is separate from the Day. That's why we read 3 Days and 3 Nights because Day and Night is separate! The Evening to Evening Pagan Day reckoning mixes the two together. Woe to those!

Resurrection from the dead

Now after the Sabbath, as it began to dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to see the tomb.

- Matthew 28:1

When the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, bought spices, that they might come and anoint him. Very early on the first day of the week, they came to the tomb when the sun had risen.

- Mark 16:1-2

But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they and some others came to the tomb, bringing the spices which they had prepared.

- Luke 24:1

Now on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene went early, while it was still dark, to the tomb, and saw the stone taken away from the tomb.

- John 20:1

Clearly, all 4 authors tell us the same story, Sabbath was past and the first Day (Light) of the week started with the morning. Consequently, the Day (Light) starts in the Morning not in the Evening. The Evening to Evening Day reckoning is Pagan.
