So what happened on the fifteenth day (first day of unleavened bread) of the month during Christ’s last year on earth?
15th – First Day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread
16th – Crucifixion / Preparation Day
We know from scripture that following the “Last Supper” was Christ’s betrayal and Crucifixion, which fell on the preparation day – the day before the Sabbath:
“And now when the even was come, because it was the preparation, that is, the day before the sabbath,” – Mark 15:42
17th – Sabbath
Finally, we know from scripture that Christ died and rested before the Sabbath Day:
“And they returned, and prepared spices and ointments; and rested the sabbath day according to the commandment.” – Luke 23:56
According to the Bible here, the Sabbath actually fell on the 17th of the month and not as the Lunar believers claim (8th, 15th, 22nd, or 29th).
Please brethren, do not be fooled by the private interpretations of men that promote the false Lunar Sabbath but turn to the scriptures as your sole reference. “But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.” Matthew 15:9
In His service,
“Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men,
after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.” Colossians 2:8
