Jamie Moore [11/27/2015 5:32 PM]
Yes he died on a Friday you didn’t know that?

John Kissinger [11/27/2015 5:33 PM]
and we are off to the races…

John Conger [11/27/2015 5:34 PM]
So how was he dead 3 days if he rose Sunday?

Ricky Grimsley [11/27/2015 5:41 PM]
No he did not die on friday.

Ricky Grimsley [11/27/2015 5:42 PM]
Dake has great teaching on this.

There have been many noted believers in a Wednesday crucifixion, from the time of the early church until now. These include Epiphanus, Victorinus of Petau in 307 AD, Lactantius, Wescott, Cassiodorus, and Gregory of Tours. Later, Finis Dake and R.A. Torrey also believed in a Wednesday crucifixion. We now know that the Bible teaches a Wednesday crucifixion, so the reader now must face the facts of the Bible as compared to the traditions of men.

Yeah I’ve heard the argument that it didn’t mean full days, just part of a day justified it bring included but I think that’s a stretch

John Kissinger [11/27/2015 6:39 PM]
No can do – Jesus himself said: For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly … Sounds pretty full to me if you’re asking

John Conger [11/27/2015 6:49 PM]
Yeah no doubt. But tons of evidence and common sense doesn’t work to good sometimes

Of course it was on Friday. He rose ON the third day.

John Kissinger [11/29/2015 9:42 AM]
so how do you count? Glynn Brown

By using the Jewish rekoning of time in the first century, not by the modern method.

A Jewish infant was circumcised on the 8th day,even if he was born at a late hour,it was still considered one whole day.

    That would be Thursday evening after sunset Jewish time. Which makes Sunday the morning of the third day.

    The Bible says as Jonah was in the belly of the whale three days and three nights , so shall Jesus be in the heart of the earth three days and three nights.

    If you look closely, the Bible doesn’t say he rose early in the morning. It says that when the women came early in the morning, while it was yet dark, the tomb was already empty. It is very possible that Jesus rose in the beginning of the first day of the week, at the end of the Sabbath, at nightfall on Saturday evening.

    Thus, if he were crucified on Wednesday, that would allow him three days and three nights in the tomb. Remember, He was laid in the grave hastily, because the sun was about to set. So, Christ’s resurrection at sundown fits the prophecy precisely.

    Mary Ellen Nissley is correct. Also, the Bible tells us that the day after the crucifixion was a “High Sabbath”. It was NOT the seventh day sabbath. The high sabbath was the first day of unleavened bread in which no work could be done. That was on a Thursday. Then the next day, which was Friday is when the women went and bought the spices cause they couldnt buy them on a sabbath day. Then it says the day after they bought the spices they rested according to the commandment. That was the seventh day (Saturday) sabbath. Then Jesus arose sometime after sundown on Saturday night, fullfilling the three days and three nights prophecy. Its amazing to me that so many Christians still can’t count to three…

    Doesn’t it say they couldn’t anoint His Body because. They had to get Him in the Tomb before the Sabbath. Because they couldn’t work on the Sabbath Day. Their Day started at 6:pm. Or stopped at 6:00 pm. I’ll need to look this all up. It’s been a while since I studied it all out.

    I think she is right. I hadn’t read all the comments.

    I think it’s the High Sabbath is where we get it mixed up. Some people doesn’t know about the High Sabbath. I never heard it like that either until several years ago when Bro. Divas Small was our Camp Meeting Bible Teacher at Camp Meeting. Did he ever do some great teaching. That’s the first time I ever heard of it. And on Easter we still just teach about the Sabbath. That’s why many doesn’t know about the High Sabbath. And even then I didn’t fully understand it. And need to study up on it where it would be plain to people. I’ll have to a nit I didn’t study it out then even though I think we all know every seven years the land was suppose to rest for a year. Even though Jews didn’t follow through with it. That was they were taken captive for seventy years.
