So you are calling 3pm - 6 pm, 3 hours, one day ,no,This comes up every year in one forum or another.
Of course you know that Jews count their 24 hour days differently than we do:
Friday 3:00 PM - 6:00 PM DAY ONE
Saturday TO 6:00 pm DAY TWO (from Fri 6:00 PM)
Sunday 6:00 AM till
discovery of empty tomb DAY THREE (from Sat 6:00 PM)
I believe we need to forget about the 3 nights.
Sunset to sunset, is how they measure the days.
Sunset usually is 6pm, or there about.
So, Wed.3pm-Thursday, sunset, one day, first day
Thursday, sunset ,to Friday sunset second day
Friday sunset to Sat. Sunset, the third day, and of course, Sat.Sunset is the first day of the week, thus rose after Sat.Sunset,first day of the week..Sunday
If ya'll can't see it after this post, I give up, lol.
I'm setting the time at 6:00 pm for sunset. As you've stated, it was probably around that time.
Your problem is that you state Wed 3:'00 pm to THURSDAY, sunset, as day one.
Wed 3:00 PM to Wed 6:00 PM would be DAY ONE...
you wrote Wed 3:00 PM to Thurs sunset as day one...
THAT would be two days.
Think about it.
What for_his_glory wrote is important, but I have to reread it. I had come upon this High Sabbath when first studying about this....If I remember, not every Passover includes a High Sabbath,,,but that year it did.
