The History of Passover, May 1, 2023

The 17th of Nisan Yom Chamishi (Thursday): night-afternoon,

The 18th of Nisan Yom Shisi (Friday): night-afternoon,

The 19th of Nisan Yom Shabbath (Saturday): night and day.

The question is: When did Jesus rise? Obviously after Saturday’s Havdalah (close of Shabbat) Service

Havdalah worship is the day of Jesus’ resurrection. So, Jesus rose on Saturday night.


The Lord Jesus was crucified or died according to the Gospel of Luke 3:1-2. In the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, when Pontius Pilate was governor of Judea, and Herod was tetrarch of Galilee, Philip his brother, tetrarch of Iturea and Trachonitis, and Lysanias tetrarch of Abilene, when Annas and Caiaphas became high priests.

The question:

  1. Who was Tiberius Caesar?
  2. What year did Tiberius begin to reign?


TIBERIUS was the second Roman Caesar to replace Caesar Augustus, his father Tiberius Claudius Nero and his mother Livia Drusilla. He was born on 16 November 42 BC (in Rome) and died 16 March 37 AD, at the age of 77 years (in Rome). He is Roman Paganism. His reign period was around September 18, 14 AD to March 16, 37 AD.

In the 15th year of his reign or in 28 AD, Jesus was 30 years old at that time (when he was baptized) – read Luke 3:21-23. Jesus taught for 3 years and 6 months. When Jesus was arrested and crucified, he was 33.5 years old and at that time Tiberius’ reign was in the 19th year or in 34 AD.

This means that the 15th year of Tiberius Caesar’ reign was in 28 AD. At that time Jesus Nit’bal (baptism) was approximately 30 years old (Luke 3:22-23). From this we can calculate the year Jesus was crucified. Jesus’ ministry period was 3 years and 6 months. Jesus was crucified and died in 32 AD.

The conclusion is that Jesus was crucified in AD 32 and it is clear that Jesus DIED or was CRUCIFIED on Nisan 16 3792 (Hebrew). April 16, 32 AD (Gregorian) on Wednesday (Yom Revii) and rose on Shabbath (Saturday) –> the seventh day when it closed Shabbat.

That is the meaning of the Havdalah worship performed by the Jewish nation every Shabbat. And fulfilling that Jesus is Lord of the Sabbath.
