Scriptural Arguments Adduced for a Wednesday Crucifixion
The scriptural arguments adduced for a Wednesday crucifixion¹ have not been met by the subsequent contributors who believe that Jesus was crucified on Friday. Those who have endeavoured to show that “three days and three nights” does not necessarily involve the full period have failed to appreciate the fact that, for two important reasons, even the expression “the third day” requires three complete days. In the first place, since our Lord was not buried until sunset, the crucifixion day was ended and the passover Sabbath was the first day in the tomb. Secondly, as described in Matthew 28:1, 2, Jesus rose towards sunset on the weekly Sabbath (see Testimony, loc. cit.); the last day in the tomb, the third, was therefore almost a complete one.

Crucifixion is a historical method of capital punishment in which the victim is tied or nailed to a large wooden beam and left to hang for several days until eventual death from exhaustion and asphyxiation. It is principally known from classical antiquity, but remains in occasional use in some countries.
