Matt. 12:39, 40 Three days & Three nights Jesus Christ was to be in the earth.

What is a Sabbath Lev 23:1- 3 “Holy Convocation” Set apart, sacred assembly. No work to be done on that day except preparing food to eat.

Deut. 5:14 Day of Rest
H 7676 = Sabbath Seventh day of the week, Day of Atonement, Sabbath year

Exodus 12:2
: 3 Lamb to be scarified (John 1:29 “Christ the Lamb of God”; I Cor. 5:7)
: 11 The Lords Passover (Hebrews 9:12-15) called GK 2564 (to invite) This day not a “Holy Convocation” the work of redemption was done, at the cross Jesus did the work of redemption by shedding his blood for us to cover our sins. 
: 13 Token (H 226 Oth Sign) 
: 15-16 The first day a “Holy Convocation” & the Seventh day No work to be done

The 14th day of Nisan Jewish year begins on that day, in that month, which is our March-April. That day begins at sun set as the Jewish day begins at sun set not midnight as our days do. This is when a new nation was born. (This is very important as we will see later) 

Traditional belief is that Jesus was crucified on Friday and rose on Sunday. This does not stand up the scriptural scrutiny and in realty is a pagan belief based upon the pagan holiday of Ishtar (Easter).  
Let’s look: Friday sunset - Saturday sunset One day 1
Saturday Sunset – Sunday sunrise one half day ½ (Sabbath not yet ended)
This does not line up with scripture in Matt 12:39, 40 Three day’s & three nights

John 12:1 six days before the Passover, Jesus was traveling from Jericho, if he was crucified on Friday then he would have been traveling on the Sabbath and that would have been illegal and out of the question for Jesus. The weekly Sabbath was from Sunset Friday to sunset Saturday.

First Month Nisan (March-April)
Feast 1 Passover - Feast 2 Unleaded Bread - Feast 3 First Fruits

 Mark 14:1, 2, 12-17 “First day of unleavened bread” 
I Cor. 5:6-8, 9 Christ our Passover

Mark 14:22-25 Christ gave to the Church the ordnance of communion which was patterned after the Passover and as Christians we are to celebrate communion in remembrance of him being the Passover Lamb of God. 

 Passover for the Jews, who are still waiting for the messiah to come, is a feast of hope that he will come back for them. This is a faithful observance for them and one of respect and honor to God.

Let’s look at the time line for Jesus death & resurrection:
