Is Palm Sunday Correct?

Jesus was crucified on the passover. Six days earlier, Jesus came to Bethany. John 12:1 says, "Then Jesus six days before the passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead." The next day, he made his entry into Jerusalem.

John 12:
12 On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem,
13 Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.
14 And Jesus, when he had found a young [donkey], sat thereon; as it is written,
15 Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on an [donkey's] colt.

Verse 1 tells us that six days before the passover Jesus came to Bethany. In verse 12, the phrase "the next day" lets us know it was five days before the passover when Jesus entered Jerusalem. Jesus was crucified on Wednesday. Five days before Wednesday is Friday. To believe in Palm Sunday you are forced to believe Jesus was crucified on Friday which violates Biblical teaching. Tradition has become more important with pastors than Biblical truth. The Triumphal Entry is just one example. Not only do they get this day wrong but they set up the crucifixion to be taught incorrectly as well. Nothing is more important than the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Because he died on the cross we can be forgiven. When he rose from the dead he proved he was Lord and became the first of the resurrection. Now we can know we can have eternal life. The corrupt teaching about the resurrection starts with Palm Sunday. The teaching that a Friday crucifixion and Sunday resurrection constitute three days and three nights demands that when Jesus spoke of this he was a fool or a liar. He was neither. Palm Sunday and a Sunday resurrection of Jesus Christ are blasphemous. Jesus also said he would rise after the third day (Mark 8:31). Together these are not just details. They are a stumbling block to the lost. Jesus did not make this entrance on Sunday but instead on Friday. Going on from there, once people accept Palm Sunday and a Sunday resurrection they bring in delusion and spiritual blindness into the church. If pastors won't give this up they will have a harder time with the rest of the problems.
