Just when did Jesus die and when did He rise from the Grave?
Did Jesus die on a Friday and did He rise on a Sunday?
When you look at the Scriptures concerning the death and resurrection of Jesus there
is only one sign that Jesus gave and that is in Matthew 12:39-40
And He answered [and] said to them, "A wicked and adulterous generation seeks after
a sign, but no sign shall be given to it except the sign of Jonah the prophet.
For just as Jonah was in the belly of the whale three days and three nights, in like
manner the Son of man shall be in the heart of the earth three days and three nights.
If Jesus died on a Friday then He would not have risen on the Sunday!
Any child could reason that Friday to Sunday just does not fit! The reason being
that Jesus would have been in the grave for only two days and not three.
The “Good Friday” theory is just not good enough! We must be true to ourselves and
to the words of our Saviour and take what He has given us in the Scriptures and that
is that He would be in the grave three days and three nights and not two.
