The uncomfortable truth is that it was Palm Sunday to First Fruits that created a holy week—holy because of the Feasts of Passover, Unleavened Bread (of which the first and seventh days of this second feast are high-day Sabbaths; the first 2 of 7 annual HIGH HOLY DAYS/annual High Sabbaths), and First Fruits (Resurrection Sunday). Most important is the fact that the Feast of First Fruits came after this true holy week’s regular weekly Sabbath ended! These holidays/feasts and Holy Days are God established, as commanded in Leviticus 23!
In spite of the fact that God’s honored and celebrated First Fruits feast’s name has been renamed and its date has been redetermined, First Fruits is the ONLY day on which Christ Jesus arose from the grave! Thus, First Fruits Sunday remains biblically significant, regardless if Christ followers are calling it Easter Sunday or Resurrection Sunday, or if Jewish people are confirming that it ALWAYS falls on 16 Nisan!
The burial and resurrection of Christ Jesus are based on Jewish dates and NOT Gregorian calendar days! Then too, Jewish holidays begin at sundown on the dates before they are listed on the Jewish calendar. For example, this means that 14 Nisan begins during the night hours of 13 Nisan, and so forth!
Jesus the Christ did not die on Good Friday! He died right before the beginning of Abib/Nisan 15th; that is, He died on Passover (Abib/Nisan 14th), a few hours before the day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread started. It is because the Lord died on Passover that Christ Jesus is now every born again and saved believer’s symbolic PASSOVER.
Whenever we are too busy thinking about ourselves and what we can get from Christ Jesus, we NEVER will be truly moved by our knowledge and understanding of the pain and suffering that were ahead for Christ Jesus, nor will we be moved by the sorrow our Lord demonstrated for the pain and suffering that were ahead for those who loved and followed Him. For these reasons, our “fake” compassion NEVER will measure up to our Lord’s compassion!
