-----A Double Sabbath
If Friday was the day of crucifixion then this day would have to be a preparation day for not only Passover but also for the Seventh day Sabbath of the Lord and would therefore be a double Sabbath. Can we prove this from the Word of God for even further evidence? In the Bible, Passover is always called Passover and the Seventh day Sabbath is always called the Sabbath. John 19:31 below says "THE Sabbath" with the word "THE" being the definite article, that is, not "A sabbath" but "THE Sabbath." Hence this is and can only be the weekly Sabbath. John 19:14 confirms it is a double sabbath. This day is not only the preparation for "THE Sabbath" but also the preparation for "THE Passover" and why it is called a high day.
John 19:14 "And it was the preparation of the Passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King!"
John 19:31 "The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day,(for that sabbath day was an high day,) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away."
I agree with you Socci. Thank you for the booster.
