Prophecies fulfilled
the day Jesus died

Submit questions  -  New Articles
The last day in the physical life of Jesus Christ began at sunset on April 4 in 30 A.D. (a Tuesday). It was just after sunset that he observed, along with the twelve disciples, his last Passover. Before the sun sets on Wednesday, April 5 (Biblical days begin and end at sunset) he will be arrested, undergo TWO trials carried out by those who hate him, then handed over to the Roman authorities to receive the death penalty. He will then suffer the excruciating pain of being crucified until he finally dies and is buried. This short article lists the prophecies Jesus fulfilled on the day he died for the sins of all humans.
