I didn't know this until somewhat recently, but Jesus was crucified on Wednesday and rose Saturday evening/late afternoon as the sun was going down. At first it sounds crazy, but the reason is because since most people read the Scripture where it says the next day was the Sabbath they assume that it means the typical Saturday sabbath. However in John 19 it says the Sabbath referred to is an high day, and in Leviticus, there were 7 high days which were like bonus sabbaths, making it so that 7 x a year there were 2 sabbaths in the same week. In this particular year, it fell on a Thursday. So Jesus was crucified and dead by 3 PM Wednesday. In the evening, His body was placed in the tomb and that was night #1 (for in Matt 12 Jesus said He would be in the belly of the earth 3 days and 3 nights (the tradition of Friday to Sunday also would make Jesus a liar since that would be 2 nights and 1 day)). THEN, Thursday day was day #1 and then Thursday night was night #2, Friday day was day #2 and Friday night was night #3 and Saturday day was day #3 and somewhere around the later afternoon or end of afternoon Jesus resurrected. And then when before the sun was up the following Sunday morning they found He was already gone out of the tomb. Therefore according to the Scriptures, it is Good Wednesday, not Good Friday. Thank God for Good Wednesday! And Good Saturday (Resurrection Day!)!
