The crucifixion of Jesus Christ began at 9:00 a.m. and He died at 3:00 p.m.
A long time ago, someone told me that is when the two daily lamb sacrifices were made. Exodus 29.39 does make reference to a daily lamb sacrifice in the morning and in the evening, but I cannot find out the times.
I can see how 9:00 a.m. could qualify as the morning sacrifice, but I am having a hard time with 3:00 p.m. being evening, although the Keil and Delitzsch commentary does refer the reader to their comments on Exodus 12.6 and how some have argued that 3:00 p.m. is when the sun begins its decline toward the evening, where a similar issue of timing is involved.
Anyway, if Jesus began to die and died at the times of those daily lamb sacrifices, that would be very significant.
Has anyone done any study on this?
