What day of the week was Jesus crucified?

Looking for research, commentary, sermons on the subject.

Please advise.

Good Friday is the traditional answer (many hits in Logos resources for Friday as a word or a topic). But three days and nights in the tomb is not satisfied if we assume that He rose on Sunday, so consider this web article.

Jesus was crucified and died on Friday before 6 PM. Anything after 6 PM is when the day would be considered an end and a start of a new day. So He died on Friday in the afternoon which is one day. After 6 PM this would have been considered two days so by Sunday morning that would be the 3 days and 3 nights. That is my understanding. Hope that makes sense. 

Shalom, in Christ, Keith. Check out my music www.soundcloud.com/therealkpang

W. Graham Scroggie in his book A Guide to the Gospels has chapter on this topic. I couldn't find this book or any of Scroggie's books in logos or vyrso.

Harvey & Linda Munsart:
What day of the week was Jesus crucified?

Welcome Big Smile

One search idea is:

([field heading,largetext] crucifixion,passion) BEFORE 88 WORDS ([field heading,largetext,surface] Wednesday,Thursday,Friday)

Morph search finds plural forms of Greek lemma for Sabbath:

lemma:σάββατον@N?P

English translation often has singular Sabbath.

If Sunday (daylight) was the 10th of Nissan (day passover lamb was chosen), then Thursday was the 14th of Nissan.

  • Sun 10 Nisan (Passover lamb chosen = Palm Sunday & Triumphant Entry)
  • Mon 11 Nisan
  • Tue 12 Nisan
  • Wed 13 Nisan
  • Thu 14 Nisan (Passover - in tomb late on 1st day)
  • Fri 15 Nisan (Annual feast Sabbath - in tomb 1st night & 2nd day)
  • Sat 16 Nisan (weekly Sabbath - in tomb 2nd night & 3rd day)
  • Sun 17 Nisan (stone rolled away before sunrise - in tomb for 3rd night)
