The Bible does not say on what day of the week Jesus was crucified. The Bible says that Jesus was crucified on Preparation Day and the next day was a special Sabbath. Most Christians assumed that the “special Sabbath” was a Saturday. Hence they concluded that Jesus was crucified on a Friday. This is not a good assumption. The special Sabbath occurs on Nisan 15th, a day of the Hebrew calendar, whose weekday changes every year. Hence the assumption that Preparation Day was a Friday on the year Jesus was crucified is not necessarily valid. In the fourth century AD the church made the assumption that Preparation Day was a Friday using the faulty logic described earlier to institutionalize Good Friday. The assumption that Preparation Day was a Friday caused some contradictions with the scriptures. Most notably, Jesus failed the sign of the Messiah by not spending three full days in the tomb. There have been some unconvincing attempts to rationalize Jesus spending less than two days in the tomb. Jesus says that scripture will be fulfilled to the slightest punctuation mark. The author noticed problems with conversation of the road to Emmaus due to the Friday Preparation Day assumption. The author also noticed problems with the scriptures about the women preparing spices due to the Friday Preparation Day assumption as well. All of these scriptural problems disappear if a Preparation Day of Wednesday is assumed. The church has put up with these problems for centuries rather than correcting the Friday Preparation Day assumption made in the fourth century AD.
