It is my understanding that Jesus died on the cross on Passover. It is my understanding that Jesus was in the earth 3 days and 3 nights like Jonah was in the belly of the whale for the 3 days and 3 nights. (So, because of that, I do not believe that Jesus died on Friday.)
It is my understand that we celebrate the resurrection to commemorate the finding of the empty tomb:
John 20:1 KJV
The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yetdark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre.
The Jewish first day of the week would have started at Sun Down on our Saturday, so are you saying that Jesus arose sometime before Sun Down on Saturday?
I understand the Ishtar comment as much as I need to, but I would like to understand the timing better if you have any information to offer. Thanks!
