Notes:
In the Jewish religious calendar, the Roman numeral represents the month number and the number following is the nth day in the month.
Since it was summer and very hot, the shops were open in the morning, closed from noon to 4 pm and open from 4 pm to 7 pm.
Details about the crucifixion can be found at http://www.geocities.com/peacecrusader888/crucifyidx.htm .
Blue green background represents nighttime and light yellow, daytime.
From "The History of Christianity", a Lion Handbook, page 9 - "Sunday, the Christian day of worship, was observed from the very beginning of the Christian
church. It was a radical departure form Judaism, which observed the sabbath (or seventh day of the week). The move to the first day of the week was
to make a weekly reminder of the day when Jesus rose from the dead."
