All days begin with darkness as was the creation.

All days and therefore sabbaths begin at sunset and not at sunrise. The dawning of a day for the Jewish people is when the sun goes down. Dusk and Dawn are events that occur simultaneously. During the week of Christ's being killed there were two Sabbaths, one, a special or high day Sabbath (John 19:31) which began at sunset of what we call Tuesday and the second Sabbath at sunset of what we call Friday. Christ was hung on a tree, died and was put into the grave when the sun went down on the day we call Wednesday where the body spent the first day, consisting of darkness and light, the second day consisting of darkness and light, and then the final day consisting of darkness and light again. At sunset of the third day which would have been on what we call Saturday around 6 pm Christ arose. Christ arose on the First day of the week, at the beginning of the day when it was still dark.

When the Sabbath ends at sunset the Jewish people go out to work or do other chores.

Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance. John 20:1

In the following text it was still "in the sabbath" and was beginning to dawn towards the first day of the week when Mary Magdalene and Mary went to see the sepulcher.

Matthew 28 (Both the Geneva and Original King James)
In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulcher.
And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.

John 19:31 Now it was the day of Preparation, and the next day was to be a special Sabbath. Because the Jews did not want the bodies left on the crosses during the Sabbath, they asked Pilate to have the legs broken and the bodies taken down.
