Easter - Passover 2018
Easter Sunday is on April 1, 2018. It is one day before the "true date" of the anniversary of the resurrection of Jesus on the third day of Passover - Nisan 17:16/17. His resurrection was in the day hours on the weekly Saturday Sabbath in 30 AD. The "true date" of the anniversary of His resurrection is April 2, 2018.
Jesus presented Himself in Jerusalem as our Passover Lamb also on the weekly Saturday Sabbath. It was on March 30, 30 AD. After being betrayed for 30 pieces of silver His death was at 3 PM on Wednesday, April 3, 30 AD. His resurrection was on Day 3 of Passover which was precisely 3 nights and 3 days after His death.
Nisan 14 during the day hours is the date of the Death of Jesus. It is also the date of the evening that begins Day 1 of Passover - an Annual Sabbath. The anniversary date of the death of Jesus is from sunset on March 29 until sunset on March 30, 30 AD.
The Passover Seders to remember the Passover at the time of the Exodus and the death of Jesus are held the evening of Nisan 14 that begins Nisan 15:14/15. They will be held the evening of March 30, 2018 after sunset.
The morning of Nisan 15 was when those in the Exodus left Egypt after the night of the first Passover. (Numbers 33:3) And, the morning of Nisan 15 is when a 3-night guard of the tomb of Jesus was set: the evenings of Nisan 15, Nisan 16 and Nisan 17. The evening of Nisan 17 was the evening before the empty tomb was seen by the women on Day 4 of Passover - Nisan 18:17/18 in 30 AD. The guard of the tomb left at 6 AM just before the women saw the empty tomb at sunrise.
Jesus was seen 3 times in His resurrected body on Nisan 17:16/17 on Saturday in 30 AD - before the women saw the empty tomb at sunrise on Sunday morning Nisan 18:17/18. The anniversary of the "true date" of the resurrection (as stated previously) is April 2, 2018 - the third day of Passover - Nisan 17:16/17.
