Christianity 201 Guidelines

orthodox Christians only.

Discussion on matters of general mainstream evangelical Christian theology that do not fit within Theology 201. Have some spiritual gifts ceased today? Is the KJV the only viable translation for the church today? In what sense are the books of the bible inspired and what are those books? Church government? Modern day prophets and apostles?

This forum is primarily for Christians to discuss matters of Christian doctrine, and is not the area for debate between atheists (or those opposing orthodox Christianity) and Christians. Inquiring atheists (or sincere seekers/doubters/unorthodox) seeking only Christian participation and having demonstrated a manner that does not seek to undermine the orthodox Christian faith of others are also welcome, but must seek Moderator permission first. When defining ďChristianĒ or "orthodox" for purposes of this section, we mean persons holding to the core essentials of the historic Christian faith such as the Trinity, the Creatorship of God, the virgin birth, the bodily resurrection of Christ, the atonement, the future bodily return of Christ, the future bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, and the final judgment. Persons not holding to these core doctrines are welcome to participate in the Comparative Religions section without restriction, in Theology 201 as regards to the nature of God and salvation with limited restrictions, and in Christology for issues surrounding the person of Christ and the Trinity. Atheists are welcome to discuss and debate these issues in the Apologetics 301 forum without such restrictions.

Additionally and rarely, there may be some topics or lines of discussion that within the Moderator's discretion fall so outside the bounds of mainstream orthodox doctrine (in general Christian circles or in the TheologyWeb community) or that deny certain core values that are the Christian convictions of forum leadership that may be more appropriately placed within Unorthodox Theology 201. NO personal offense should be taken by such discretionary decision for none is intended. While inerrancy is NOT considered a requirement for posting in this section, a general respect for the Bible text and a respect for the inerrantist position of others is requested.

The Tweb rules apply here like they do everywhere at Tweb, if you haven't read them, now would be a good time.

  • Jesus and His disciples ate the Passover when?

    "And the first day of unleavened bread, when they killed the passover, his disciples said unto him, Where wilt thou that we go and prepare that thou mayest eat the passover?" -- Mark 14:12.

    According to the Jewish calendar the Passover meal is eaten the evening of the 15th of Nisan

    In 30 A.D. Jewish calendar 3790 the Passover would have been eaten Wednesday evening.
    In 33 A.D. Jewish calendar 3793 the Passover would have been eaten Friday evening.

    It seems like "Wednesday evening" for a Jew would probably be considered Tuesday evening for us.

      Yes, the Jewish day begins the evening before the day. So the 15th of Nisan on the 5th day being our Thursday would begin the evening of our Wednesday. According to the modern Jewish calendar calculations the 15th of Nisan never falls on a Monday, Wednesday or a Friday. But only on Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday and the Sabbath our Saturday (1st day, 3rd day, 5th day and 7th day).

        Then I don't understand why you voted for Wednesday night if you agree with me that the correct time would be Tuesday night.

          What I agreed with was the Jewish day on a Wednesday would begin Tuesday evening.
          The 15th of Nisan fell on a Thursday.
          Its evening was on Wednesday. The 15th of Nisan is not to fall on the even days Monday, Wednesday or Friday (2nd, 4th or 6th day).

            For me, the important point is they gathered and ate and Jesus gave the teachings of the night. Determining the precise year, day, and day of the week seems to be a distraction from the importance of the event.

              The Bible is supposed to be inerrant and that claim is being attacked. So we need to make sure of our facts when defending that.

                The Passover occurs on the 14th day. This would be Tuesday night. Then Jesus the real lamb of God would also be killed later on the 14th (Wednesday afternoon).

                Exodus 12:18-19
                In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at even, ye shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of the month at even. Seven days shall there be no leaven found in your houses: for whosoever eateth that which is leavened, even that soul shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he be a stranger, or born in the land.


                Joshua 5:10-11
                And the children of Israel encamped in Gilgal, and kept the passover on the fourteenth day of the month at even in the plains of Jericho.
                And they did eat of the old corn of the land on the morrow after the passover, unleavened cakes, and parched corn in the selfsame day.


                Ezekiel 45:21
                In the first month, in the fourteenth day of the month, ye shall have the passover, a feast of seven days; unleavened bread shall be eaten.


                Note: Some sources say that the Passover is eight days, but the Bible seems to contradict this doctrine. Most likely, the eighth day or 21st of Nisan is the point at which they were allowed to eat regular bread again.

                  I don't defend 100 percent innerrency I do defend accuracy. The account of Scripture is accurate. So, Tuesday at sundown or Wednesday at sundown, Jesus arose from the grave. I'm happy. the end.

                    Would a skeptic be quiet after getting an answer of "Tuesday or Wednesday, who cares"?

                      If the skeptic is arguing over precisely when an event occurred and not the bigger issues, I would wonder if he is just grasping for a reason not to believe. There are many events once you got further back than say 400 years, that can not be precisely dated but no one doubts they happened.

                        I give TM an AMEN! The account is accurate. That doesn't mean it must be precise. It's telling the truth.

                          I guess TM and Cathy gave good answers, but I wonder about the best way to help the skeptic. And maybe in trying to determine what the best date is, we might learn more about the events in the Bible.

                              Before trying to determine the date of the Passover meal (or the resurrection) you'd better determine whether or not the Bible is even precise enough for you to make a judgement one way or the other.
