Letter: Interesting Bible translations
The only day of the week designated with a special name is the seventh day of the week, which is called the Sabbath (day of rest). It has been assumed that the crucifixion was on a Friday. However there were two Sabbaths during the week of the crucifixion. The book of John explains that it was a “high day” which refers to high holy days which were annual Sabbaths in addition to the weekly Sabbath.
The New Living Translation states that this high day was in Passover week. This means that the Passover supper was actually a Passover meal. Jesus Himself said: “For even Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us” I Cor 5:7. The day after Passover is a high day.
Transcripts after the KJ of 1611 there an important note from experts and Bible commentators who explain that the earliest and most reliable New Testament manuscripts do not even contain Mark 16:9-20.
For more detail on the translations of the Bible (you will be amazed), I strongly recommend you obtain and read the book — “Shocked by the Bible: The most astonishing facts you’ve never been told” by Joe Kovacs He also wrote, “Divine Secret: The Awesome and Untold Truth about Your Phenomenal Destiny”
