Did Jesus Christ die on Good Friday and resurrect on Easter Sunday morning?
For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. - Mathew 12:40
Is Good Friday to Easter Sunday morning three days and three nights?
PandN- If my understanding of the bible is correct, Jesus died on the 4th day of the week, which we now call Wednesday. The Jews did not have a name for the days of the week except Saturday which they called Sabbath. Sunday ;as we know, it is the first day of the week. Therefore Jesus was raised from the dead on Saturday.(Sabbath). It must be remembered that just before Christ death, they were preparing for Passover.
PandN- I forgot to mention that a day was concider from the time the sun went down until the sun went down again 24 hours later. That would be one full day. God bless.
An interesting possibility. We truly don't know. But Luke 50-56 makes it clear that Jesus was taken down on Friday, the day of preparation for the Sabbath. This fits with Jewish law that a body must be buried within 24 hours, but not on Sabbath.
Please note, there is no such thing as Luke 50-56.
Read Matthew 27: 57 thru 66 and then Matthew 28: 1. Have a good day SidKemp and God Bless.
Thanks, Graceinus. My typo - I meant Luke 23:50-56. Rereading that plus Matthew 27:44 to 28:1, my interpretation still works for me. Jesus died and was buried on "the day of preparation" for Sabbath, Friday, & rose on Sunday. What matters: He ros
SidKemp- I guess we're at an impass, but regardless, God bless both of us anyway.
Sid, Read Leviticus 23:4-8 and John 19:31. The day of the preparation for the Sabbath (Nisan 14) was for the annual Passover Sabbath (Nisan 15), which occurred on Thursday of the crucifixion week, not the weekly Sabbath (Saturday).
Thanks. I'll look at Leviticus & John. But Jesus had already celebrated Passover: The Last Supper was clearly a Passover feast. So he died after Passover Seder. Wed. Eve. Thursday night = Gesthemane. Friday the day of the crucifixion. Scholarly v
It was the foreknowledge His death at the very time of the slaying of the Passover lambs (Nisan 14) that led Jesus Christ to arrange for an early paschal meal with His disciples because He knew He would suffer death as the true Paschal Lamb.
Most religious historians interpret the three days as follows. In Roman times, there was no notion of zero. So Good Friday, when Jesus died, was Day 1. Saturday was Day 2. Sunday was Day 3. That would be 3 days and 2 nights, and Jesus rose "on the third day"
We run into this counting problem all the time. When you book a hotel, if you stay one night, you leave on the next day. Did you leave on day 1, or day 2?
In English, we pretty consistently count from zero. So a fortnight is fourteen nights, 2 times 7 nights, or 2 weeks. But in French, two weeks is called quinze jours, 15 days, from the older style of counting from before the discovery of zero.
The Jewish calender and dates under the Law need to be applied correctly to know the day Jesus died. The Jewish calendar consisted of twenty-eight days in each month, which meant that the Passover would fall on the same day every year.
You are close to right about 28 days. The Jewish calendar is luna-solar. Passover is always on the full moon. But it does not always fall on the same day of the week or day of the year, as the moon's orbit is not exactly 28 days & 28/365 not roun
no and it was not on Friday that he died.

no He did not. even though most churches teach that as fact it is not, it is a false story.
