This story happened while at home with my children. Before I realized it, I was reading the facts on the death of Jesus because a friend of mine was asking questions on it. I did not realize that Jesus was setting me up for the answer.

It was Thursday night in the truck stop I was eating and my wife called. We talked and I told everyone I loved them and I said to tell the children that I would be home Friday. The children shouted with excitement! And I kidded with them on the phone about tickling them when I got home. They laughed and we hung up.

So I was to unload near Dallas and load in Dallas on Friday morning. Friday started out slow and I got to the shipper to load and found out I would not be able to load till 2 pm. Well now I would have to stay in Dallas 8 hrs to do a split instead of getting home as planned.

Finally I was headed home. I arrived around 5:30 pm. The next morning I was out welding in the heat of the day. We didn’t finish until 8:30 pm Saturday night. We all worked hard that day, everyone all the way down to the 4 year old. They know I get to play faster if I get my chores done. So everyone got cleaned up and we all went out to eat. Sunday we all went to church and Sunday night I started getting ready for work. That’s when the youngest asked, and HERE IS THE KEY, he said, “daddy you said you would be home with us three days”. I smiled at them and said, “I was home 3 days and 3 nights”. Then the youngest of the girls said, “daddy you got home Friday”. But It was almost nighttime, and you were home Saturday and Sunday, that’s only 2 days daddy. I saw the similarity then.

So I explained it to them, they got over it but they felt that they got the short end of the stick on this “Daddy 3 days home” deal.

Then I realized that JESUS set me up!

I was home three days and three nights also. And I worked in the heat with fire and brimstone welding and I was sun burnt too, or roasted with fire you might say. Then Sunday morning we got up went to church to meet with our Father in Heaven, and see what He had for me. We came home saw and played with my children and departed blessing them, Wow!

So here is the scripture on JESUS and what He said and others said about His death and raising up from the dead.

Here is a definition because if you don’t know what it means you cannot put the story together without it:

high day – [the assembly of or for the passover] we call it high day/high sabbath because passover landed on a Friday and we have to get to our homes before the sabbath begins at 6 pm on Friday because our days start at 6 pm.


Luke 22:15-22


 15And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer:

 16For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God.

 17And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, Take this, and divide it among yourselves: 

18For I say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God shall come.

 19And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.

 20Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you. 

21But, behold, the hand of him that betrayeth me is with me on the table.

 22And truly the Son of man goeth, as it was determined: but woe unto that man by whom he is betrayed!


   Notice that JESUS did not eat of the passover meal; but remember, what Jesus said when He told them to prepare a place where He could eat the passover, They break bread and sing of what GOD PROMISED us; So they ate the passover a day early because JESUS knew him and his disciples would not be there for the passover day so he had passover a day early, GOD/JESUS knew what He was doing.

    And JESUS kept passover but it was a day early and by Jewish law He could, remember the law was that if you had to break the law to save human life you could, and again JESUS said if one of you having only one sheep seeing it fall into a pit, would you not lay hold on it and lift it up on the sabbath day, than how much more is a man than a sheep? Should not this man be healed on the sabbath, there we see again JESUS breaking commandments from GOD to save a mans hand from being withered, do you think GOD/JESUS could have said to the man with the crippled hand come back tomorrow and we will heal you then? No JESUS was making a statement by healing him on the sabbath. First, was that he was LORD OF IT, LIKE HE MADE THE LAW TO BEGIN WITH, and this would have been proof that He was the son of GOD, because they sure have not been healing much!And we all know that with out GOD you cannot even heal a rash on a nats behind without the power of GOD on your side.

     Also JESUS said to all of them there, you would not have condemed the innocent, meaning they were killing some people for breaking the sabbath for saving other people, so we see JESUS  tryng to straighten out the law for us and make and show us by example, or by living it out for us to see.

    This reminds me of my oldest son, we were standing together by a fence looking at a big red ant mound, and I ask my son how would you communicate with the ants, he said I would give them food and water, I said yes but you could never really tell them how you feel. Like stay out of our home. He said how then? I said you would have to become an ant yourself, in order to tell them what you want. You would have to speak ant language, then you could get some where with them, because all the ants are going to do if you put your hand down there is bite you. And I said that is what GOD had to do. He had to become part of His creation and take upon himself human flesh so HE could tell us what to do to get to heaven where GOD is.                   

But back to the passover, if JESUS was not going to be able to be home, which he had a real good reason.  He was going to die on the passover so you see He kept the law to the letter even this one. Heres the KEY, Abib 1 which is GOD’S first day of the month and the beginning of the year it starts on the watchmen looking at the barley harvest and when the seeds are full and green and can be eaten when parched with fire thats when Abib 1st starts. Now this could be any day in the vernal exquinox, which starts about the 20th of March, but then you’ve got to have your eye on the moon too, watching  for the crescent moon or the waxing moon. There was a lot of things at play to get it right and every family had to do this. And seasons were different from North to South, so you could not use the vernal exquinox because the barley might not be ready yet. The people could be easily off a day or 2 or 3. It was not precise timing, but GOD did honor what you would call the 1st day of Abib and everybody would comply to the watchmens timing. So you see GOD/JESUS was not hung up on the day, but I do believe JESUS my GOD got it right, and died on the right day.

  The vernal exqinox is when the sun crosses the equator when the earth is tilting back toward the sun for the northern part of the earth bring on spring time it is usely on the 20th of March is the vernal exquinox for spring for us in the northern part of the world. AND JESUS BEING GOD WOULD HAVE KNOWN THE TRUE PASSOVER DAY, Abib 14 which is GODS calender was Abib so JESUS ate the passover a day early for the disciples and the law but He had to die for the World the next day so Jesus kept both the right day because Nisan 14 is the Jewish passover day which was changed by a Jewish leader about 9 b.c. IN BABYLON when they were in captivity. So the Jews ate the passover according to their calender Nisan 14. So we still see GOD honoring their day by JESUS dying on Nisan 14, remember you were supposed kill the lamb at the beginning of the day which is from the start of [sundown or even] on into the night you ate the lamb; they ate the lamb on Abib14.

   So the Jewish passover is on Nisan 14 which can move all over the month because our calendar make it move but GODS PASSOVER day Abib 14 which is the lunar calendar they start with the 2 watchmen looking for the new moon or the waxing moon, thats the moon going to the full moon, then they can count the 14 days till the full moon. It has not changed since JESUS MADE THE SUN MOON AND STARS, we our still on a rocking world.

     Now think of this; This is something, since Abib 1st. If it was to have started on Sunday the first day of the week, and Saturday would be the seventh day of the week, and it is the sabbath day, then the passover would always land on Friday evening. Every single time throughout history, because the 14th of Abib would always be the second Friday at sundown the lamb would be killed about dark and they would roast the lamb until it was done and eat the lamb that night and burn the rest in the morning. Which still would be the 14th and they would have to get ready to leave to go to Egypt, this is so cool when I realized it and realized that the Jews changed it so they would not be troubled with the sabbath every single year. The Nisan calendar would throw the passover all over the week through the ages like today.

    So GOD/JESUS is so right in what He did to them, and it made the Jews want to kill him for doing what was true and just.

     If you want to get passover day right every single time look for the cresent new moon. Then you would go out and check the barley harvest in the field to make sure you were in the the month of Abib if the grain was in the green head and you could parch it with fire to eat.  This is the month of Abib, but if the seed was still too young and full of water you had to wait another month to start the month of Abib.

    And yes there are a lot of Jews that get passover wrong, and there are a lot of Jews that do not believe GOD HAS COME YET. THEY DON’T EXCEPT JESUS CHRIST AS THEIR MESSIAH. The son of the blessed one.


     The next thing to watch for is what the Jews said to the roman ruler; that deceiver said he would rise on the 3rd day, and to post some guards to watch the tomb.

We start with Matthew 26: 24 to Matthew 28: 20 let’s look at the whole account.

Matthew 26:24-28:20


 24 The Son of man goeth as it is written of him: but woe unto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! it had been good for that man if he had not been born.

 25 Then Judas, which betrayed him, answered and said, Master, is it I? He said unto him, Thou hast said.

 26 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.

 27 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;

 28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

 29 But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.

 30 And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives.

 31 Then saith Jesus unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered abroad.

 32 But after I am risen again, I will go before you into Galilee.

 33 Peter answered and said unto him, Though all men shall be offended because of thee, yet will I never be offended.

 34 Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, That this night, before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.

 35 Peter said unto him, Though I should die with thee, yet will I not deny thee. Likewise also said all the disciples.

 36 Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder.

 37 And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy.

 38 Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.

 39 And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.

 40 And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?

 41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

 42 He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.

 43 And he came and found them asleep again: for their eyes were heavy.

 44 And he left them, and went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words.

 45 Then cometh he to his disciples, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.

 46 Rise, let us be going: behold, he is at hand that doth betray me.

 47 And while he yet spake, lo, Judas, one of the twelve, came, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and elders of the people.

 48 Now he that betrayed him gave them a sign, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he: hold him fast.

 49 And forthwith he came to Jesus, and said, Hail, master; and kissed him.

 50 And Jesus said unto him, Friend, wherefore art thou come? Then came they, and laid hands on Jesus and took him.

 51 And, behold, one of them which were with Jesus stretched out his hand, and drew his sword, and struck a servant of the high priest’s, and smote off his ear.

 52 Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.

 53 Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?

 54 But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?

 55 In that same hour said Jesus to the multitudes, Are ye come out as against a thief with swords and staves for to take me? I sat daily with you teaching in the temple, and ye laid no hold on me.

 56 But all this was done, that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled. Then all the disciples forsook him, and fled.

 57 And they that had laid hold on Jesus led him away to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were assembled.

 58 But Peter followed him afar off unto the high priest’s palace, and went in, and sat with the servants, to see the end.

 59 Now the chief priests, and elders, and all the council, sought false witness against Jesus, to put him to death;

 60 But found none: yea, though many false witnesses came, yet found they none. At the last came two false witnesses,

 61 And said, This fellow said, I am able to destroy the temple of God, and to build it in three days.

 62 And the high priest arose, and said unto him, Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these witness against thee?

 63 But Jesus held his peace, And the high priest answered and said unto him, I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us whether thou be the Christ, the Son of God.

 64 Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.

 65 Then the high priest rent his clothes, saying, He hath spoken blasphemy; what further need have we of witnesses? behold, now ye have heard his blasphemy.

 66 What think ye? They answered and said, He is guilty of death.

 67 Then did they spit in his face, and buffeted him; and others smote him with the palms of their hands,

 68 Saying, Prophesy unto us, thou Christ, Who is he that smote thee?

 69 Now Peter sat without in the palace: and a damsel came unto him, saying, Thou also wast with Jesus of Galilee.

 70 But he denied before them all, saying, I know not what thou sayest.

 71 And when he was gone out into the porch, another maid saw him, and said unto them that were there, This fellow was also with Jesus of Nazareth.

 72 And again he denied with an oath, I do not know the man.

 73 And after a while came unto him they that stood by, and said to Peter, Surely thou also art one of them; for thy speech bewrayeth thee.

 74 Then began he to curse and to swear, saying, I know not the man. And immediately the cock crew.

 75 And Peter remembered the word of Jesus, which said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. And he went out, and wept bitterly.

Matthew 27

 1 When the morning was come, all the chief priests and elders of the people took counsel against Jesus to put him to death:

 2 And when they had bound him, they led him away, and delivered him to Pontius Pilate the governor.

 3 Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders,

 4 Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou to that.

 5 And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself.

 6 And the chief priests took the silver pieces, and said, It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury, because it is the price of blood.

 7 And they took counsel, and bought with them the potter’s field, to bury strangers in.

 8 Wherefore that field was called, The field of blood, unto this day.

 9 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying, And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of him that was valued, whom they of the children of Israel did value;

 10 And gave them for the potter’s field, as the Lord appointed me.

 11 And Jesus stood before the governor: and the governor asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And Jesus said unto him, Thou sayest.

 12 And when he was accused of the chief priests and elders, he answered nothing.

 13 Then said Pilate unto him, Hearest thou not how many things they witness against thee?

 14 And he answered him to never a word; insomuch that the governor marveled greatly.

 15 Now at that feast the governor was wont to release unto the people a prisoner, whom they would.

 16 And they had then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas.

 17 Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate said unto them, Whom will ye that I release unto you? Barabbas, or Jesus which is called Christ?

 18 For he knew that for envy they had delivered him.

 19 When he was set down on the judgment seat, his wife sent unto him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that just man: for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of him.

 20 But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude that they should ask Barabbas, and destroy Jesus.

 21 The governor answered and said unto them, Whether of the twain will ye that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas.

 22 Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified.

 23 And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified.

 24 When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it.

 25 Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.

 26 Then released he Barabbas unto them: and when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified.

 27 Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the common hall, and gathered unto him the whole band of soldiers.

 28 And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe.

 29 And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand: and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews!

 30 And they spit upon him, and took the reed, and smote him on the head.

 31 And after that they had mocked him, they took the robe off from him, and put his own raiment on him, and led him away to crucify him.

 32 And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name: him they compelled to bear his cross.

 33 And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, a place of a skull,

 34 They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink.

 35 And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.

 36 And sitting down they watched him there;

 37 And set up over his head his accusation written, THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS.

 38 Then were there two thieves crucified with him, one on the right hand, and another on the left.

 39 And they that passed by reviled him, wagging their heads,

 40 And saying, Thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, save thyself. If thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross.

 41 Likewise also the chief priests mocking him, with the scribes and elders, said,

 42 He saved others; himself he cannot save. If he be the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him.

 43 He trusted in God; let him deliver him now, if he will have him: for he said, I am the Son of God.

 44 The thieves also, which were crucified with him, cast the same in his teeth.

 45 Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour.

 46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

 47 Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This man calleth for Elias.

 48 And straightway one of them ran, and took a sponge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink.

 49 The rest said, Let be, let us see whether Elias will come to save him.

 50 Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.

 51 And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;

 52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,

 53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.

 54 Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God.

 55 And many women were there beholding afar off, which followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering unto him:

 56 Among which was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James and Joses, and the mother of Zebedees children.

 57 When the even was come, there came a rich man of Arimathaea, named Joseph, who also himself was Jesus’ disciple:

 58 He went to Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the body to be delivered.

 59 And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth,

 60 And laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock: and he rolled a great stone to the door of the sepulchre, and departed.

 61 And there was Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary, sitting over against the sepulchre.

 62 Now the next day, that followed the day of the preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees came together unto Pilate,

 63 Saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said, while he was yet alive, After three days I will rise again.

 64 Command therefore that the sepulchre be made sure until the third day, lest his disciples come by night, and steal him away, and say unto the people, He is risen from the dead: so the last error shall be worse than the first.

 65 Pilate said unto them, Ye have a watch: go your way, make it as sure as ye can.

 66 So they went, and made the sepulchre sure, sealing the stone, and setting a watch.

Matthew 28

 1 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 sepulchre.

 2 And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.

 3 His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow:

 4 And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.

 5 And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.

 6 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.

 7 And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.

 8 And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word.

 9 And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him.

 10 Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.

 11 Now when they were going, behold, some of the watch came into the city, and shewed unto the chief priests all the things that were done.

 12 And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gave large money unto the soldiers,

 13 Saying, Say ye, His disciples came by night, and stole him away while we slept.

 14 And if this come to the governor’s ears, we will persuade him, and secure you.

 15 So they took the money, and did as they were taught: and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day.

 16 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them.

 17 And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted.

 18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

 19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.

     So you see that it was Friday to Sunday and these things we are writing is so that we

might believe that JESUS/GOD had come, or like we say Maranatha, GOD HAS COME.
