Margaret Minnicks is an ordained Bible teacher. She writes many articles that are Bible lessons. It is amazing that people who have been going to church for many years still do not understand what happened to Jesus before, during and after He was crucified on the cross between two thieves. One reason people might not understand all the details is that no single gospel gives an inclusive account of Jesus' death, burial and resurrection even though all four gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John cover a particular part of the event. Each author wrote from his own perspective to a particular audience. However, in order to get a more accurate timeline, one must take pieces from all four gospels. The following timeline is according to the Bible, and it is simplified in a way that anyone can understand it. Jesus' final hours on the cross lasted a total of six hours, according to the sequence of events recorded in the four canonical gospels. Pay attention to the events leading up to the crucifixion, the crucifixion itself and what happened immediately after the crucifixion. Judas promised the Roman soldiers that he would betray Jesus for 30 pieces of silver.

Jesus' Final Hours
Jesus Christ ate an evening Passover meal with His disciples at the beginning of Nisan 14, Jewish reckoning and instituted the New Covenant symbols Matthew Matthew  And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and broke it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body. Jesus was crucified and died around 3 p. Matthew Matthew  And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?
One other point that people miss is that Yeshua ascended to the Father on first fruits to receive His kingdom Dan Then spent 40 days traveling back and forth from heaven or whatever heaven is, heavenly realm, another dimension? I personally believe it is right here around us but veiled from our view.. I have really enjoyed some of your teaching esp around the temple and the heavens and the earth passing away and how the second temple jews would have understood exactly what heaven and earth would have meant to them. Did you know that the curtain has a motif of the joining of the heavens and earth on it? For years I struggled with the so called disconnect between mat 14 - I could not see any change in the context of what Yeshua was saying to His disciples , now I know it was because there isn't one. Now one has to come to terms that the Church is that temple that joins the heavenly realm with planet earth. This is a huge subject and causes us to ask what does this mean, what does this entail?
