the What is the Timeline of the Crucifixion and Resurrection of Jesus Christ?

As narrated in the Biblical Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, Jesus Christ said He would arise three days after His Crucifixion: Wednesday night and Thursday, Thursday night and Friday, and Friday night and Saturday. He arose from the tomb at sunset on Saturday, the Jewish Sabbath.

Tuesday Jesus ate an evening Passover meal with His disciples in Jerusalem, was betrayed by Judas Iscariot, arrested in the Garden of Gethsemane, taken to Pontius Pilate, sent to Herod, and sent back to Pilate, who sentenced him to death. During the night, Jesus was beaten, mocked, and given a crown of thorns. Wednesday In the morning he was made to carry his own cross to the hill called Calvary. With nails in his wrists and ankles, Jesus was on the cross for approximately six hours until he died. Onlookers shouted insults. At one point Jesus spoke to his mother Mary and disciple John. After that, darkness covered the land. As Jesus died, an earthquake shook the ground and caused the temple curtain to rip from top to bottom. Jesus’s body was placed in the borrowed tomb just before sunset.

Thursday Wednesday night and the daylight hours of Thursday were the first full day.

Friday Thursday night and the daylight hours of Friday marked the second full day.

Saturday Jesus rose near sunset, exactly three nights and three days after His body was placed in the tomb.

Sunday While it was still dark, women brought spices early in the morning to prepare his dead body, but Jesus had already risen. And now we celebrate His Resurrection on Easter morning.
