That would mean sunday night too. But some people say people around the world count differently and I am sure someone would come up with some far reaching reason that 3 nights wasn't exactly how it indicates (lol)<quoted text>Rob, why was Jesus so specific about being in the grave the same amount of time that Jonah was in the belly of the fish? Why did He specify 3 days and 3 nights? And then of course, was He correct?
Doesn't matter, christian writers created the story that sunday was going to be the day. If the story was Jesus died on a thursday the scriptures would say he was 4 days in the tomb. Saturday WOULD NEVER BE THE DAY! because that was the Jewish sabbath and christianity has done everything to take the Jew out of Jesus and distance themselves from the Jews their customs/traditions.
Interesting that we know all these little details about a guard posted at the tomb and that he mysteriously fell asleep, etc. but when it comes to the actual person that the story is about we know nothing about him. No one days Jesus date of birth, what he did for 31 years up until his ministry nothing!, don't know what he looked like, don't know what he did for a living to feed himself, and the most important dates his death and resurrection and no one thought they were important enough to save or record?
makes no common sense......I smell agenda.
