Has anyone ever heard the probability of there being two Sabbaths the week Jesus was crucified?

Mark 16:1 says when the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, bought spices that they might come and anoint Him.

However, in Luke 23:56, the women returned and prepared spices and ointments; and rested the Sabbath day, according to the commandment.

How could these women buy the spices and ointments after the Sabbath, and yet have them prepared before the Sabbath? That 's impossible, unless there were two Sabbaths that week: --- the annual Nisan 15 Sabbath, which ushers in the first day of Unleavened Bread (Lev.23:7) and the weekly Saturday Sabbath.

If Jesus died late on Nisan 14(wed.), the next day was a 'high Sabbath'-- Nisan 15(thurs.). Next day --Nisan 16(fri.) the women buy and prepare their burial spices, for this is the first opportunity they have. Next day, Nisan 17(sat.) they rest according to the scripture. Next day, Nisan 18(sun.) they go to the tomb of Jesus very early to anoint His body --- but He is gone. He rose from the dead late Saturday, exactly 3 days and 3 nights -- 72 hours -- like He said.

Is there any truth to this article? thanks!

Well, all our research has indicated that there is one passover the week of Jesus' death. Jesus died on a Friday and rose on a Sunday. If you look at the verses you quoted carefully they are describing the same events. It's kind of like the elephant andf the blind men. Two different apostles relating the same chain of events from different perspectives. I'm not sure from what you were reading and quoting because you didn't include the reference. If you could give me the reference, then I could look at what you were looking at OK?
