I just wanted to point out
that it is Scripturally impossible to have two
Sabbaths during the impalement account.
According to the Torah the first day and the
seventh day of ULB are not Sabbaths. IOW,
according to common understanding, they have two
Sabbaths back to back or a preparation day in
between during the impalement week now the 7th
day you can call a Sabbath, but the first day of
ULB one cannot call it a Sabbath because it is
not referred to as a Sabbath.
In other words, exactly
what Scripture identifies the first or the
seventh day of ULB as a Sabbath? Something like
shabbâthôn shab-baw-thone' From H7676; a
sabbatism or special holiday: - rest, sabbath.
H7676 שַׁבָּת shabbâth shab-bawth' Intensive
from H7673; intermission, that is,
(specifically) the Sabbath: - (+ every) sabbath.
Lev 23:3 ‘Six days work is done, but the
seventh day is a Sabbath
(7676) of rest
(7677), a set-apart gathering. You do no work, it
is a Sabbath (7676) to Yahuah in all your
Lev 23:23-25 And Yahuah spoke to
24 “Speak to the children of Yisra’el, saying, ‘In
the seventh month, on the first day of the month,
you have a rest
(7677), a remembrance of blowing of trumpets, a
25 ‘You do no servile work, and you shall bring an
offering made by fire to Yahuah.’ ”
Lev 23:27-31 “On the tenth day of this
seventh month is the Day of Atonement. It shall be
a set-apart gathering for you. And you shall
afflict your beings, and shall bring an offering
made by fire to Yahuah.
28 “And you do no work on that same day, for it is
the Day of Atonement, to make atonement for you
before Yahuah your Elohim.
29 “For any being who is not afflicted on that
same day, he shall be cut off from his people.
30 “And any being who does any work on that same
day, that being I shall destroy from the midst of
31 “You do no work – a law forever throughout your
generations in all your dwellings.
32 ‘It is a Sabbath
(7676) of rest
(7677) to you, and you shall afflict your beings.
On the ninth day of the month at evening, from
evening to evening, you observe your Sabbath.”
IOW, I’m looking for the
original instruction. Such as “the first day of
Unleavened Bread you have a qodesh miqra, it is
a Sabbath of rest to you.” And, IOOW, not by
default due to the day it falls on.
7-day continual keepers
claim that there are two Sabbaths during the
time Yahusha was in the grave. This claim
cannot be substantiated in Scripture.
Therefore, since it was the Preparation Day, that
the bodies should not remain on the stake on the
Sabbath – for that Sabbath was a high one – the
Yehudim asked Pilate to have their legs broken,
and that they be taken away.
Most people would assume
because it says “for that Sabbath was a high
one” that it is referring to the first day of
ULB, but as we see in the Torah there is nowhere
that the first day of ULB is referred to as a
Sabbath. So the Sabbath that they were
referring to here could only have been the 7th
day Sabbath and the reason that it is called a
“high one” is because it is also the first day
of the Feast of Unleavened Bread; which can only
mean that the 7th day Sabbath and the first day
of the Feast of ULB took place on the same
If one claims that there
were two Sabbaths they need to prove from the
Scripture that the first day of the Feast of ULB
is called a Sabbath.
