Christ Died AD 28 (Michael Rood)

Michael Rood Says Christ Died Passover AD 28


Michael Rood is a nondenominational minister who has spent a lifetime researching the chronological aspects of the Bible.  Today, with the help of NASA and the written record, Michael Rood believes with absolute certainty that Jesus’ ministry was only 70 weeks long (a little over one year) beginning with his baptism in AD 27 and his death on the cross Passover AD 28.

The Passover Lamb

One HUGE factor in helping one believe Christ’s ministry really was only one year long (as opposed to 3½ years, as most believe today) is God’s specific requirements for the Israelite’s Passover Lamb back in Egypt.  How so?  Because those requirements were ALL confirmable prophecy about the coming Messiah, Jesus Christ, who would be forever known as the Lamb of God!

The lamb was to be as follows:

  1. A male (Exodus 12:5)
  2. Without blemish (Exodus 12:5)
  3. No bone broken (Exodus 12:46)
  4. Eat its Flesh (Exodus 12:8)
  5. Strike blood on wooden door posts (Exodus 12:7)
  6. Choose it on tenth day of Nissan (Exodus 12:3)
  7. Kill it on the fourteenth day of Nissan (Exodus 12:6)
  8. One year old (Exodus 12:5)

These eight requirements were fulfilled precisely by Jesus, in the fact that he was a man, having never sinned (without blemish), didn’t have a bone broken in his body (even while on the cross), taught his flesh must be eaten for eternal life, blood stained the top and two sides of a wooden cross, was chosen on the tenth of Nissan (riding into Jerusalem on a donkey), and was killed on Passover, the fourteenth of Nissan!  Wow!  So, what makes you think God’s requirement for the lamb to be of the first year (one year old) was not also fulfilled in Jesus?  It almost certainly was!  And thus, it makes sense that Christ’s ministry was very likely only one year long!

So, if Rood is correct that Jesus Christ DIED in the year AD 28, this means Earth’s 4,000 year was that year, and thus Earth’s 6,000 year (and the return of Jesus Christ) will be year AD 2028!


Video Transcript:

Forty two years before Jesus was born, the Julian calendar was put in place, and the Julian calendar still remains today the time clock of astrophysics.  And we can go back, and take that calendar back to any point in time to 45 BCE, to January 1st when it was instituted, and we can know exactly what day of the week it was on, no problem!

But it took over 38 years of work to reestablish the ancient Biblical calendar, which is based on the phases of the moon, literally, the first sliver sighting of the new moon was what began the month.  And there is no question about this, historically, the writings of the rabbis, the Pharisees go back 300 years before the New Testament written, and we know exactly what was done in the Second Temple period.

But, until NASA put mirrors on the moon, shined laser beams off them for a 10 year period, running the calculations through the cray supercomputer, we did not have what we needed to be able to establish the visible sighting criteria of the new moon to take us back to that time.  So now we can go back with all the Roman records, the Biblical records, and know with absolute accuracy, dead on to the day, of exactly when the crucifixion took place, the day the resurrection took place, and when Yeshua was born.  It is all there, there’s no question about this at all except among the ignorant who have not studied this …

What we have is the entire prophetic picture of the Lamb of God, the Passover Lamb as the sacrifice, the substitutionary sacrifice.  The year that Yeshua was crucified, Passover, the Passover sacrifice, was done on a Wednesday, that was the 14th day of the month of the Aviv (Nissan).  He was sacrificed/crucified at the very hours that the Passover lambs were being sacrificed on the Temple mount, which according to Josephus around that period was around 250,000 lambs were being sacrificed that afternoon.  He (Jesus) was on the cross at that very hour.

He was in the grave before sunset.  And at sunset begins the High Sabbath, not the weekly Sabbath, but the High Sabbath of the Feast of Unleavened Bread.  He was in the grave all Wednesday night, all Thursday night, and all Friday night.  He was in the grave three days, all day Thursday, all day Friday, and all day Saturday.  He was raised on the Sabbath day!  When the women came early the first day of the week, it was still dark, the grave was empty!  He wasn’t raised on the fourth night; that is nonsense!  He wasn’t raised on a Sunday.  He was raised on the Sabbath day.  The Scriptures are very clear about this!  And when they came to the grave, before sunrise, it was already empty at that time.

The year was 28 of the Common Era.  There is no 31/2 year ministry.  As a matter of fact, for over 300 years after the event, every disciple of the Apostles, every disciple of the disciple of the disciples of the Apostles, for 300 years, not one of them gave one dissenting opinion; they all said that his (Jesus) ministry was about one year.

It was Eusebius, the champion of Constantine the heretic – you know, the one who brought in all the pagan sun God worship, and made Rome a Christian empire with the stroke of a pen, without one convert – it was Eusebius, the Bishop, the overseer at Ceserea … and he came up with (and this was his statement), “Jesus’ ministry was three and one half years, which is one half of a week.”  That immediately tells you that he is one of a million people that attempted to understand the prophecy of Daniel (which now occurs in the 9th chapter after chapters were added) … but that messianic prophecy he’s trying to decipher it, and so, he came up with this ridiculous nonsense of a three and a half year ministry.

And that is the beginning of putting Constantine in the place of naming himself the Pontifus Maximus, the Almighty God upon the Earth, the vicar of Christ.  And that the Messiah isn’t really going to return, all prophecy’s been fulfilled, and Jesus’ ministry was three and one half years.  Absolute lunacy!  Absolute heresy!  And yet that’s what we inherited through Rome …

    God Bless!


    Question is, In Luke 16:19-31 it looks like the judgment is right when you
    die, is that true?

    Luke 16:19-31 this is not a parable.. When a name is used like Abraham and
    Lazarus, it would be false witness to say Abraham said something he didn’t
    say, right? So this must be the truth if Yeshua said it.. (unless man add
    it.. the Holy ghost will let you know if its true) I think its true. That
    being said, if you look up Abraham’s bosom in the concordance, it is
    Paradise or the garden of Eden. This is where a believers spirit is after
    the separation from the body ( all so the thief on the cross, Luke 23:43) I
    also believe it is here on Earth like it says in Gen 3:24.. The cherub is
    there guarding it… Hell, Hades is the prison that in Luke 16:23, 1 Peter
    3:19 says the non-believer is in prison waiting judgment. The torment is he
    can see Paradise but knows he can’t be there; He’s dead in his sin with no
    hope…. This is not the Lake of Fire where the second death occurs Rev
    20:14, 15… (The destruction of the Spirit or your thoughts Psalm 146:4)
    Hades Is a holding place or a pre-judgment holding tank for the
    non-believers spirit…Again see Luke 16:23, 1 Peter 3:18-19, and Rev
    20:13-15… Hades or hell is not the lake of fire… How can Hades or Hell
    be thrown into its self? ( Rev 20:14) The judgment is after the 1000 year
    reign of Yeshua and Satan is released for a short season… (Rev 20) Then
    the believers that died *IN* Yeshua (1 Cor 3:12-15, Rev 20:5, 12) in Rev
    20:12 the book of life is opened..* if* it was all non believers why is the
    book of life there? As you read in 1 Cor 3:12-15, the believer’s deeds are
    judge; hence you have the book of life at the judgment. In Rev 20:6 the
    ones that die *FOR* Yeshua don’t go through the judgment, they are the
    priests of God and reign with Yeshua for the 1000 years and the war of Gog
    and Magog before the judgment.

    Plan A, or died *FOR* the *Almighty* = Rev 20:4-6

    Plan B, or died *IN* Yeshua *Believer* = 1 Cor 3:12 -15 and Rev 20:12

    Plan C, or *Celestial* (not sure how to spell) being. Dead to the flesh but
    alive in the Spirit (1 Cor 5:5, 1Cor 15:29, 1 Peter 3:18-19, 1 Peter 4:6)

    Plan D, or *Destroyed* took the mark of the beast and worshiped his
    image..(Rev 14:9-11) This happens right before the 1000 year reign.


    May the Lord be with us and protect us.. I pray this e-mail finds all seeking the truth and love in our Lord and King, Yeshua.

    In 2009 when I started truly walking with the Lord Yeshua, the Holy Ghost started my training and understanding of the Word, the times we are in and things to come soon. I’ve been teaching the works of Dewey Bruton from 2010 Daniel’s Time Line. In his study he first taught in 2001, then put on his web site in 2005 on . He taught that the trib would start on 10-09-09 and 1260 days from that date, 03-22-13 the great trib would start. Yeshua would arrive on the Feast of Trumpets that starts at sunset 10-02-16, 1290 days later.

    Now that we have hind sight, we can see if he was right. Dewey went to the Lord in Feb. 2009, he didn’t get to see the start of the trib or find out he was spot on.

    On 10-09-09, the last day of the Feast of Booths, a man won the Nobel Peace Prize. (google CNN Money 10-09-09)

    The same man Has to be in Jerusalem on 03-22-13 (1260 days later) and stand in the most holy place and stop the sacrifices. ( prayer and worship) (see Matthew 24:15 and Daniel 9:27) He stood in the most holy place at this time, where Yeshua was born. This Christian man didn’t bow his knee to our Lord an King Yeshua when there. He mocked Yeshua as the false messiah riding into Jerusalem on 03-21-13, the Jewish date is Nisan 10, the same day Yeshua made his Triumphal entry into Jerusalem. The man’s name is Barack Hussein Obama. All the above events can be found online at your favorite news source, type in Obama and the date.

    I can lead you to the truth but I can’t make you think. May all seek the Lord and learn the truth on your own. Please go to and see for yourself. All days are feast days, go to a jewish date converter on google to verifi.

      • In Danielstimeline .com Duwey Bruton used 1947 as the start year then added 70yrs. to that to get to 2017. He then added 69yrs to 1947 and it came to 2016. He then added 62yrs to 1947 and came to 2009. To arive at the great tribulation he went to the start of the Feast of Trumpets, 10-02-2016 and subtracted 1290 days(see Daniel 12:11) and came to 03-22-2013. Then he subtracted 1260 days from 03-22-2013 and came to 10-09-09. this date was not given in the timeline vidio, he left that to us to know and descern. Since he was using the Hebrew calander his timeline shows 2009-2010. here are some web helps to calculate the time and to know all date are on Feast Dates. God Bless

    • Mickey, how you feeling right about now about Dewey Bruton’s 2010 Daniel’s Time Line? You do know there’s absolutely ZERO chance Christ will return this October 2, 2016, right?

      I’m sorry you got caught up in Dewey’s lies, but his timeline is not from God. October 9, 2009 was not the start of the last 7 years. March 22, 2013 was not the start of the Great Tribulation. And October 2, 2016 will not be the day of Christ’s return. It’s all just lies!

      Now, it may turn out that Obama is the Antichrist, but he has not fulfilled ANY scriptures yet in that role, they are all still to come in the 2020’s.

      I just don’t want you to get discouraged, brother! Christ is still going to return, it’s just not this year. Come back to this site, and learn the REAL TRUTH about how God “declared the end from the beginning” (Isaiah 46:10) through the 7 Day Creation story …

      Spiritual blessings,


      • I’m still filling good about Duwey, If his teaching is wrong it’s ok I’m to listen to God not man. I do think God led me to Duwey, and the dates line up on Gods Feasts days. Obama won the Peace prize on the right date, intered Jerusalem in a limo called the Beast being a democrat the sign of a donkey mocking Yeshua on the 10th of Nisan.Then, standing where he ought not on the 22nd of March (See Matthew 24:15). So the odds are looking prety good the timeline could be right. I’ll have strong faith if not tho cause I’m just a man. God bless Gabriel

        • Ok, sounds like you’ll be alright then.

          I just get concerned for people who believe something someone says for years and years (devoting a lot of time to studying it and passing it on to others, trying to get them to believe it, too) and then, when the date passes and nothing happens, it can be a HUGE let down knowing you believed a lie, with people (family and friends) laughing at you.

          So, ok, good deal. Don’t stress it. We still have about 12 years to go. Christ will NOT return until 2,000 years after the year he died on the cross. That year was likely AD 28, and thus, AD 2028 will be the year of his return, 80 years after the Fig Tree “put forth it’s leaves” in 1948 (Psalms 90:10) and we “fly away”.

          Take care, my friend!


        • Well, Mickey, how you doing? Are we good now in understanding the “end” was not coming in this year 2016?

          That “THE END in 2016: The SHOCKING Predictions of 12 Mysterious Men…” youtube video was a big false flop. : ))

          It’s ok, like I said, the “end” will come in the year AD 2028, 2,000 years after the year Christ DIED on the cross.

          Many blessings,


  2. So that’s why Easter church service has been a negative experience. Thanks for sharing. Michael Rood is a pretty interesting teacher, I’m going to look into his teachings. Have a great Sabbath!
