This calendar, for the month of April and/or Nisan (YEAR 30 A.D.), has Nisan 14 on Wednesday, APRIL 3RD. Here is what is amazing. Pontius Pilate wrote to the Roman Emperor, in an attempt to explain the reason for having Yeshua, Jesus, crucified. Pontius Pilate wrote the letter, and at the end of the letter, he dates the writing: "THE 5TH OF THE CALENDS OF APRIL." The word "Calends" has reference to the first of a month, thus it appears to mean the 5th day of the beginning of April.
this letter is in the British Museum in London, it appears
authentic. This means that whenever Nisan 14, the day of the
crucifixion, was ------ it had to be BEFORE APRIL 5TH !!
This authenticates the year of 30 AD, when according to the above calendar, Nisan 14 was on APRIL 3 --- JUST TWO DAYS BEFORE THE LETTER WAS WRITTEN ON APRIL 5TH. That is the calendar shown above. It makes perfect sense that Pontius Pilate would, almost immediately, (2 days later), write the Emperor, explaining what he did, and try to explain why.

One of the most well known facts of history is the death, burial, and resurrection of Yeshua the Messiah, Jesus the Christ. Scholars have long argued the time frame between 29 AD and 33 AD as the time of the crucifixion and resurrection of the Messiah. It is one of the most well documented facts of history that He died on a Roman Cross, and in 3 days rose again from the dead. There has always been a cloud of uncertainty regarding the exact day and year. The fact of the resurrection of the Messiah gives a blessed hope to all mankind.
Computers are great tools for study, research, and calculations. Modern calendar computer programs, some of which were developed for the space program and astronomy, have allowed us to know the exact date for these most historic events.
We can now know that there is only one date that agrees with all the Gospel accounts. That date agrees with our modern Roman Gregorian calendar, Hebrew calendar, the modified Jewish calendar, and also the letter of Pontius Pilot, written on April 5, 30 AD.
The Messiah died on a Roman cross in Jerusalem on Nisan 14 at 3:00pm, on Wednesday, April 3, in 30AD. In 3 days and 3 nights, exactly 72 hours later, on the Sabbath at 3pm, Saturday, April 6, in 30 AD, Yeshua the Messiah rose from the dead. The Lord of the Sabbath, rose from the dead on the Sabbath, Nisan 17, on Saturday, April 6, 30 AD.
This is important because it proves that God never did change the 4th Commandment. It proves that the pope and others who honor Lucifer's sun god with their Sunday services should consider how their traditions have made the COMMAND of God, of no effect.
Mat 12:39-40 But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas: For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
Mark 16:2 And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun.
When they got to the tomb before daylight Sunday, He was already risen. When did He rise? That depends upon when He was crucified and put into the tomb. When careful research and study is done one finds that Passover, or the day of preparation, the 14th of Nisan, when Messiah Yeshua, (Christ Jesus), was crucified was on Wednesday. He said "It is finished": and He bowed His head, and gave up the ghost, at about the 9th hour, or 3:00pm, Wednesday, Nisan 14, in 30 AD. The Perfect Passover Lamb of God, by His Precious Blood, totally defeated Satan, and Redeemed the fullness of the earth which He had created. Had the princes of this world known, they would not have crucified the Lord of Glory.
Obviously, since He was in the earth 3 days and 3 nights, being crucified on Wednesday, it was Wednesday night, Thursday, Thursday night, Friday, Friday night, Saturday. He rose on Saturday, the Sabbath, The Lord's Day. Yes, Yeshua the Messiah, Jesus Christ, arose from the dead on Saturday, the Sabbath.
Let us take a look at the Passover, in which God instructs Moses, with this feast of the Lord, to teach how He would PassOver in judgment, those who were protected by the blood. Messiah is our Passover. On the 10th of Nisan a lamb was taken into the house to be observed for perfection till the evening of the day of preparation or Passover, which was always on the 14th of Nisan. The lamb was then killed in the evening, at 3:00pm, and the blood applied to the door of the house. It was that application of the blood of the lamb, (Messiah is our Passover, The Lamb of God), that would protect them from the judgment of death.
12:6 And ye shall keep it (the spotless lamb), up until
the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of
the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening. (Yeshua
died in the 9th hour, or 3:00pm on Nisan 14)
Exo 12:7 And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it.
During the feast of Unleavened bread the first day, Nisan 15 is a sabbath, (day of rest), and the Saturday during the feast of unleavened bread is a high sabbath.
23:6 And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of
unleavened bread unto the LORD: seven days ye must eat unleavened
Lev 23:7 In the first day ye shall have an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein.
Thursday, the day after Yeshua was crucified was Nisan 15, the first day of unleavened bread, and a sabbath, where no servile work could be done and that was the reason for the rushed burial in Joseph of Arimathaea's tomb. The rushed burial had to be completed before evening. The first day of unlevened bread, required sabbath rest. That Thursday Sabbath, of the first day of unleavened bread, began at sundown. Therefore we again see that Yeshua Messiah was in the tomb Wednesday night, Thursday, Thursday night, Friday, Friday night, and Saturday. When Mary went to the tomb as early as it was possible to do the work of applying the spices to the body of Yeshua, as soon as the Saturday Sabbath was over, before it was daylight on the first day of the week, she found the tomb empty and Yeshua already risen on Saturday, the Sabbath, The Lord's Day.
27:57 When the even was come, there came a rich man of
Arimathaea, named Joseph, who also himself was Jesus' disciple:
Mat 27:58 He went to Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the body to be delivered.
Mat 27:59 And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth,
Mat 27:60 And laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock: and he rolled a great stone to the door of the sepulchre, and departed.
Mat 27:61 And there was Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary, sitting over against the sepulchre.
Mat 27:62 Now the next day, that followed the day of the preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees came together unto Pilate,
Mat 27:63 Saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said, while he was yet alive, After three days I will rise again.
Mat 27:64 Command therefore that the sepulchre be made sure until the third day, lest his disciples come by night, and steal him away, and say unto the people, He is risen from the dead: so the last error shall be worse than the first.
Mat 27:65 Pilate said unto them, Ye have a watch: go your way, make it as sure as ye can.
Mat 27:66 So they went, and made the sepulchre sure, sealing the stone, and setting a watch.
Mat 28:1 In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.
Mat 28:2 And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.
Mat 28:3 His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow:
Mat 28:4 And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.
Mat 28:5 And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.
Mat 28:6 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
Before dawn on Sunday, Yeshua had already risen. He rose on Saturday, having spent 3 days and 3 nights in the tomb. He rose on Saturday, the Sabbath, the Lord's Day.
23:50 And, behold, there was a man named Joseph, a counsellor;
and he was a good man, and a just:
Luke 23:51 (The same had not consented to the counsel and deed of them;) he was of Arimathaea, a city of the Jews: who also himself waited for the kingdom of God.
Luke 23:52 This man went unto Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus.
Luke 23:53 And he took it down, and wrapped it in linen, and laid it in a sepulchre that was hewn in stone, wherein never man before was laid.
Luke 23:54 And that day was the preparation, and the sabbath drew on.
Luke 23:55 And the women also, which came with him from Galilee, followed after, and beheld the sepulchre, and how his body was laid.
Luke 23:56 And they returned, and prepared spices and ointments; and rested the sabbath day according to the commandment.
Luke 24:1 Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them.
Luke 24:2 And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.
Luke 24:3 And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.
When they arrived very early, before daylight on Sunday, they found that Yeshua had already risen.
And in John's gospel also we see that it was (Passover), the day of preparation for the feast of unleavened bread, when His body was placed in the tomb. It was a Sabbath as soon as it got dark that Wednesday when Yeshua Messiah was crucified on Nisan 14. By Hebrew reckoning the 15th day of Nisan would begin at dark and therefore the rushed burial as it was getting dark Wednesday. Yeshua's body lay in the tomb of Joseph, Wednesday Night, Thursday, Thursday Night, Friday, Friday Night, and Saturday. It was not a dead body of Yeshua in that tomb Saturday night. Yeshua was resurrected before dark on Saturday. As soon as they could get to the tomb without violating Sabbath, while it was yet dark on the first day of the week, most likely Saturday night, they found the tomb empty. The sabbath, the seventh day, Saturday, in truth, always has, and always will be the Lord's day, no matter how the Supreme Pontiff, and all others, would rather follow the traditions of men than the truth revealed in God's word. They have been deceived and are deceivers.
19:31 The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation,
(Passover), that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on
the sabbath day, (for that sabbath day was an high day,) besought
Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be
John 19:32 Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the first, and of the other which was crucified with him.
John 19:33 But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs:
John 19:34 But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.
John 19:35 And he that saw it bare record, and his record is true: and he knoweth that he saith true, that ye might believe.
John 19:36 For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken.
John 19:37 And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him whom they pierced.
John 19:38 And after this Joseph of Arimathaea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews, besought Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus: and Pilate gave him leave. He came therefore, and took the body of Jesus.
John 19:39 And there came also Nicodemus, which at the first came to Jesus by night, and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about an hundred pound weight.
John 19:40 Then took they the body of Jesus, and wound it in linen clothes with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury.
John 19:41 Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden; and in the garden a new sepulchre, wherein was never man yet laid.
John 19:42 There laid they Jesus therefore because of the Jews' preparation day; for the sepulchre was nigh at hand.
John 20:1 The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre.
The resurrection of Yeshua had occurred before Mary got to the tomb, on Sabbath, Saturday, the Lord's day, that He sanctified, and commanded us to Remember to keep holy. Ex. 20:8.

The algorithms for hebcal were taken from Emacs 19's calendar routines by Edward M. Reingold and Nachum Dershowitz. Their program is extremely clear and provides many instructive examples of fine calendar code in emacs-LISP.
Edward M. Reingold's Calendar Book, Papers, and Code

Cambridge University Press, 1997.
A unified, algorithmic presentation is given for the Gregorian (current civil), ISO, Julian (old civil), Islamic (Moslem), Hebrew (Jewish), Persian, Coptic, Ethiopic, Bahai, Mayan, French Revolutionary, Chinese, and Hindu calendars. Easy conversion among these calendars is a byproduct of the approach, as is the determination of secular and religious holidays. Calculations of lunar phases, solstices, equinoxes, sunrise, and sunset are described as well.
Implementing Solar Astronomical Calendars
By Nachum Dershowitz and Edward M. Reingold.
Birashkname (Musa Akrami, editor), University of Shahid Beheshti, 1998.
In this note we describe a unified implementation of calendars whose year is based on the astronomical solar cycle--that is, on the precise solar longitude at a specified time. For example, the astronomical Persian calendar begins its new year on the day when the vernal equinox (approximately March 21) occurs before apparent noon (the middle point of the day, not clock time) and is postponed to the next day if the equinox is after apparent noon. Other calendars of this type include the French Revolutionary calendar and the future form of the Bahai calendar. Our approach also offers a slight simplification to the implementation of the Chinese lunisolar calendar. (PostScript; 7 pages)

Bresenham's algorithm minimizes error in drawing lines on integer grid points; leap year calculations, surprisingly, are a generalization. We compare the two calculations, and show how to compute directly, without iteration, individual points of a Bresenham line. We also discuss an unexpected connection of the leap year/line pattern with Euclid's algorithm for computing the greatest common divisor. (PostScript; 18 pages)
Conversion To and From Other Calendars
The Emacs calendar displayed is always the Gregorian calendar, sometimes called the "new style" calendar, which is used in most of the world today. However, this calendar did not exist before the sixteenth century and was not widely used before the eighteenth century; it did not fully displace the Julian calendar and gain universal acceptance until the early twentieth century.
The Emacs calendar can display any month since January, year 1 of the current era, but the calendar displayed is the Gregorian, even for a date at which the Gregorian calendar did not exist.
While Emacs cannot display other calendars, it can convert dates to and from several other calendars.
Supported Calendar Systems
The ISO commercial calendar is used largely in Europe.
The Julian calendar, named after Julius Caesar, was the one used in Europe throughout medieval times, and in many countries up until the nineteenth century.
Astronomers use a simple counting of days elapsed since noon, Monday, January 1, 4713 B.C. on the Julian calendar. The number of days elapsed is called the Julian day number or the Astronomical day number.
The Hebrew calendar is the one used to determine the dates of Jewish holidays. Hebrew calendar dates begin and end at sunset.
The Islamic (Moslem) calendar is the one used to determine the dates of Moslem holidays. There is no universal agreement in the Islamic world about the calendar; Emacs uses a widely accepted version, but the precise dates of Islamic holidays often depend on proclamation by religious authorities, not on calculations. As a consequence, the actual dates of occurrence can vary slightly from the dates computed by Emacs. Islamic calendar dates begin and end at sunset.
The French Revolutionary calendar was created by the Jacobins after the 1789 revolution, to represent a more secular and nature-based view of the annual cycle, and to install a 10-day week in a rationalization measure similar to the metric system. The French government officially abandoned this calendar at the end of 1805.
The Maya of Central America used three separate, overlapping calendar systems, the long count, the tzolkin, and the haab. Emacs knows about all three of these calendars. Experts dispute the exact correlation between the Mayan calendar and our calendar; Emacs uses the Goodman-Martinez-Thompson correlation in its calculations.
