Third hour...All hours are depicted by the sun. Noon=None. High None....High Noon. It is all very simple really. A third hour could be different on which side of the earth you are on at the time, hence different time zones. At the time it was approx. 3:15 when Christ was crucified...hence the opposite pull effect on the am side. The witching hour.

The probable medical reason is pleural efflusion, caused by hypovolemic shock and congestive heart failure. Hypovolemic shock, also called hemorrhagic shock, is a life-threatening condition that results when you lose more than 20 percent (one-fifth) of your body’s blood or fluid supply. This would likely have been a result of the flogging prior to the ...

My answer is a question: What is death? God created the universe, life, our spiritual existence, matter, time, and everything but himself. As others said, God revealed to the prophets and then through Jesus that he would die, must die, and did die.

Julius Africanus was an early third century Christian historian. He says that a pagan historian named Thallus mentions the darkness that occurred during Jesus' crucifixion, and that Thallus explained it as an eclipse.

A plausible argument that resolves the Nissan 14/15 dispute would be one that claims: The date of the Passover in the synoptics is earlier than what is indicated in John's gospel -- which is because Jesus and His disciples were using a slightly different calendar from the Jewish authorities at the time, and it is to that slightly earlier date that Jesus ...

Writing in The Mystery Of The Last Supper, Professor Sir Colin Humphreys, a scientist at the University of Cambridge, proposes a new solution, based on a combination of Biblical, historical and astronomical research. He urgues that Jesus used a different calendar and crucifixion took place in the 14th of Nisan (April 3, 33 CE) of the official post-exilic ...

Mark's Gospel was the first New Testament gospel to be written, and John Dominic Crossan says, in The Birth of Christianity, page 110-111, there is a massive consensus among scholars that this gospel was the major source used by the authors of Matthew and Luke. If it was also the indirect source for John's Gospel as well, as some scholars believe, then Mark ...
