But can we discern from the Scriptures on which day Jesus really died? unleaven Day #1: In Mark -34, Jesus is on His way up to Jerusalem.
He tells His disciples, "Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be delivered unto the chief priests, and unto the scribes; and they shall condemn him to death, and shall deliver him to the Gentiles: and they shall mock him, and shall scourge him, and shall spit upon him, and shall kill him: and the third day he shall rise again." On the same day, He talks to James and John about sitting on His right hand and left hand, and then restores Bartimaeus' sight.
Then follows Jesus' night trial before the chief priests at which they condemn Him to death. “Straightway in the morning" Jesus is taken to Pilate, then to Herod, then to Pilate again until finally Pilate agrees to sign the death sentence, and orders that Jesus be crucified.
It is during this trial that Peter denies Jesus three times. At the sixth hour darkness covers the whole land until the ninth hour, and at the ninth hour, Jesus cries "My God, my God, why has thou forsaken me? Mark says in verse 42 “Now when evening had come, because it was the Preparation Day, that is, the day before the Sabbath".
