62: τη δε επαυριον ητις εστιν μετα την παρασκευην συνηχθησαν οι αρχιερεις και οι φαρισαιοι προς πιλατον— edit Textus Receptus
62: Now the next day, that followed the day of the preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees came together unto Pilate,— edit KJV text
62: And the next day, which followed the day of preparation, the chief priests and the Pharisees came together to Pilate,— edit Douay text


Now the next day, that followed the day of the preparation. The first day of the feast of the passover was called the day of preparation, because all things were on that day got in readiness for the observances of the paschal week. The Jewish day closed at sunset, and the sabbath at that time commenced. The next day mentioned here does not mean the following day in our acceptation of the word, or the following morning, but the next day in the Jewish way of speaking; that is, after the next day had commenced, or after sundown. To suppose them to have waited till the next morning would be absurd; as the disciples would be as likely to steal him away the first night as the second.
