I do not know if there are other questions like what I'm asking.
I would like to know why do not match dates between UB and the Gospels. Realtive dates to the days of Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
UB to issue 179.1 states that Easter was approaching and that it must be consumed in the evening of the next day (Friday).
The Gospels do not agree with those dates, in fact, the Old Testament in Exodus 12.6; 9,3.5.11 nm; 28,16 says that Easter was celebrated on the evening of 14 Nisan, which in the year 30 AD, corresponded to a Wednesday. Just Wednesday, April 5 according to the Julian calendar. UB gives us the date of April 7 as a day of Passover (File 185)

Hello 13w12,
A search here, on this discussion board, as well as a Google search for "dates in The Urantia Book" will provide an explanation of the dates. A paper was provided at a Urantia Scientific Symposium on dates. The paper is available here...

Best wishes,

I wonder if there is a program or a site where to find the right date of the crucifixion and death of Jesus

That depends upon whether you want the "right date" as determined by scholars or the right date as recorded by the angels. The Urantia Book Timeline gives most of the dates found in TUB -- those are the dates I'd rely on.

I can not understand why the 14 of Nisan (Passover, on the evening of 14 and until the evening of the 15th of Nisan) was a Wednesday, instead Urantia indicates April 7, which translated in the Jewish calendar corresponds to the 16th of Nisan.

Edit: And then, even the sign of Jonah, which Jesus left us, does not match the sequence that starts on April 7, in fact, on Sunday morning, Jesus was already out of the tomb. The sign of Jonah is about 3 nights and 3 days and not the 2 nights and 2 days
