Yahusha’s (Jesus’) Chronology – The Crucifixion to the Ascension

The Crucifixion

According to Africanus, Yahusha’s (Jesus’) crucifixion took place in the Ancient Hebrew Year 5531, Julian year 32 AD, when he was 30 years of age.

There are some apocryphal writings that also indicate that he was 30 at the time of his death, but Luke 3:23 says that he was getting close to age 30 when baptized. Since we know he lived a couple of years after the baptism, some scholars say that he must have been at least 32 when crucified. However; it is plausible that when Luke says “he was near 30” when baptized, he’s simply saying near 30 instead of an exact age, like 28.

I Infancy Gospel

Chapter VIII – Verse 5-7

5 When Mary saw the kindness which this robber did shew them, she said to him, Yahuah (God) will receive thee to his right hand, and grant thee pardon of thy sins.

6 Then Yahusha (Jesus) answered, and said to his mother, when thirty years are expired, O mother, the Hebrews will crucify me at Jerusalem;

7 And these two thieves shall be with me at the same time upon the cross,

The Preeminent Pesach

The “Pesach” (Passover) involves the skipping, or passing over, an imperfect goat or sheep to select one without blemish. It also relates to the time-period associated with the Pesach. The Scriptures provide all the “pesach” (sheep or goat) selection parameters. It reveals what type of animal to select, when it has to be selected, and how to select it. They thoroughly explain the Pesach meal preparation process, including the time-frame for cooking it and even the time-frame for eating it.

The Pesach Festival takes place in the Spring on the evening of the 14th day of Chodesh Rishon (First New Moon). Yehudah’s (Judas’) selection of the Messiah with the kiss of betrayal, like the selection of the pesach (lamb) for the Pesach (Passover) meal, was done on the 10th day of the First New Moon. Likewise, Yahusha‘s (Jesus’) death would occur at the same time (the 9th hour)

they would kill the pesach (sheep) on the eve of Pesach Festival. Preparation of the Savior’s body for entombment corresponds with the timeframe for preparation of the Pesach meal.

Thus, Pesach Festival is both a celebration of the Congregation of Yisrael’s (Israel’s) emancipation from slavery and a commemoration of killing the preeminent “Pesach”.

Exodus 12:2-6 (Selection Parameters of the Pesach)

2 This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.

3 Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for a house:

4 And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbor next unto his house take it according to the number of the souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb.

5 Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats:

6 And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening.

Day of the Crucifixion

According to Africanus, the crucifixion occurred in 32 AD on the eve of the Pesach (Passover) Festival. The crucifixion started mid-way the 3rd hour (9:30 AM) on April 13th. They stripped Yahusha (Jesus) of his clothing, and covered him with a linen cloth, then they put a crown of thorns on his head and a reed in his hand and nailed him to a crossbeam.

At the 6th hour (noon) darkness fell upon the face of the entire earth until the 9th hour (3:00 PM). While the sun was hidden, the veil of the Temple was rent from top to bottom, rocks were broken and tombs were opened and the bodies of Saints who slept arose.

Luke 23:44-45

44 And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour.

45 And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst.

The Resurrection

 

The day after the Pesach (Passover) Sabbath, Yahusha’s (Jesus’) earthly body was resurrected from the dead. This fulfills the Prophecy that he would be raised from the dead after 3 days in the earth. The resurrection was significant and necessary in order for him to show the world that he was indeed the “Word” made flesh. The resurrection shows that death has no power over mankind, and that the souls of mankind will not be abandoned to Sheol.

 

On the morning after the Pesach Sabbath, 5 women come to Yahusha’s (Jesus’) tomb hoping to anoint his body. Upon arrival at an empty tomb an angel tells them he has already risen from the dead, and to tell his Disciples to meet him in Galilee.

 

Matthew 28:7

 

And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.

 

Luke 24:6-7

He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee,

Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.

Africanus Quotation Explaining the Resurrection

 

“Now it happens that from the 20th year of the reign of Artaxerxes (as it is given in Ezra among the Hebrews), which, according to the Greeks, was the 4th year of the 83rd Olympiad, to the 16th year of Tiberius Caesar, which was the second year of the 202d Olympiad, there are in all the 475 years already noted, which in the Hebrew system make 490 years, as has been previously stated, that is, 70 weeks, by which period the time of Yahusha’s (Jesus’) resurrection was measured in the announcement made to Daniel by Gabriel.”

 

The Ascension

 

Yahusha (Jesus) remained on earth for 40 days after his resurrection, teaching in Galilee and Mount Olivet. He tells his 11 Apostles to go into the world to spread the word and spread the message that who so ever shall believe and be baptized in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit shall be saved.

 

Acts 1:2-3

 

Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen:

To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of Elohim (God).

Africanus Quotation Explaining the Ascension

“But I am amazed that the Hebrews deny that the Messiah has yet come, and that the followers of Marcion refuse to admit that His coming was predicted in the prophecies when the Scriptures display the matter so openly to our view. And after something else: The period, then, to the ascension of the Messiah from Adam and the creation is 5531 years.”

Before Yahusha’s (Jesus’) ascension into the clouds, he tells his sad apostles and disciples:

John 16:7

Nevertheless, I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
