Philippines: Christians Nailed to Cross in Good Friday Observances It does not even come close to the sufferings of Christ. Most would die of the pre-crucifixion tortures. Christ was suspended on disjoined joints by his wounds and was unable to even lay His head on the cross due to a skull cap of thorns.

Good Friday: Finding the Historical Date – Which Day in AD 30 or 33?
"Sabbath" is a generic term for a mandated feast of the Lord and it can be any day, not just Sunday. . The biggie feast and and "Sabbath" which is discussed in the gospels is the Feast of Unleavened Bread which WAS NOT Sunday but called a "Sabbath" day because of its solemnity. This day always follows Passover.
The Passover, or the remembrance feast of the Exodus, became the "Day of Preparation" and had gradually been demoted in solemnity since the time of Moses and was no longer a "Sabbath" like the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the day after Passover.
After burial, the women wanted to further prepare Christ's body but could not do it because the weekly Sabbath interfered.
Finally, how could Jesus be in the tomb three full days and three full nights with Friday death?? A Wednesday death permits this, not Friday.
If Passover were a Sabbath day, the Jewish priesthood could not slay and offer the victim, Christ, since death must not touch a high priest in anyway to defile him and make him unfit for duty that day.
Despite their machinations, in addition to Christ offering Himself as victim and priest, the Levitical priesthood completed all of the requirements for a perfect sacrifice to the Lord.
