When did Yeshua - Jesus die?

Date / Purpose / Significance to the believer

The Spring Feasts of the Lord were fulfilled by the Messiah's first coming!

Passover - Pesach

Nisan 14 - Yeshua died on Thursday at 3:00 pm Matt:27:45 - 1st. day

Remembering the deliverance from Egyptian bondage. An unblemished firstborn male lamb was sacrificed and its blood poured on the altar. A lamb was selected for each family, and four days before the lamb was to be slain it was brought into the home for a four-day examination period. Jesus is the sacrificial lamb who died for our sins. On Nisan 14 at the exact time the lamb was to be slain, Jesus was slain. Jesus also had a four-day examination period before the religious leaders and was found without blemish.

Feast of Unleavened Bread / Hag HaMatzah

Nisan 15 - a Sabbath - 1st. night- 2nd day (Fri.)

Leaven symbolizes sin. Unleavened Bread speaks of sanctification. God told the Jews to cleanse all leaven from their homes and eat only unleavened bread, matzah, for seven days, symbolizing a holy walk with Him. Jesus is the "Bread of Life" without sin. Born in Bethlehem. In Hebrew, Bethlehem means house of bread. Just as matzah is unleavened, ( sign of no sin ) so was the Messiah sinless. This Feast falls on the day Jesus was buried.

Nisan 16 - a Sabbath - 2nd. night - 3nd. day (Sat.)

Day of Firstfruits / Bikkurim

Nisan 17 - 3rd. night,

Nisan 17 then as the sun did rise - Mark 16:2

early the first day of the week, Sunday -Yeshua rose from the Dead which is 3 days and 3 nights later

The first of the barley harvest was brought as an offering to the priest in the Tabernacle/Temple. The priest would present the first of the harvest unto the Lord by waving them back and forth. This reminded the Hebrews that God gave them the land, and the harvest belonged to Him. 1 Cor. 15:20-23). Jesus' resurrection marked the beginning of the harvest of souls. John 12:23-24,32 shows Jesus was likened to a grain of wheat falling to the ground and dying to produce a great harvest. Jesus arose on Firstfruits.

Fifty day later is the

Feast of Weeks/Shavuot- Pentecost

where the Holy Spirit empowered the believers.

The fall Feast of the Lord is in the 7th month Ethanim not Tishri.

1Kgs.8 [2] And all the men of Israel assembled themselves unto king Solomon at the feast in the month Ethanim, which is the seventh month.

These feasts and holy convocations represent the Second Coming of the Messiah. There are many thoughts on these feasts, however we can't be certain as of yet. Prayer and fasting will revail these wonderful feasts and their fulfillment to us. The Lord is at hand.

Blowing of the Trumpets
Lev.23:[24] Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation.

Day of atonement
[27] Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a day of atonement: it shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD.

Feast of tabernacles
[34] Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the feast of tabernacles for seven days unto the LORD. [39] Also in the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when ye have gathered in the fruit of the land, ye shall keep a feast unto the LORD seven days: on the first day shall be a sabbath, and on the eighth day shall be a sabbath. [41] And ye shall keep it a feast unto the LORD seven days in the year. It shall be a statute for ever in your generations: ye shall celebrate it in the seventh month.

[37] These are the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations
