I made the mistake of sticking my nose into the discussion by pointing out that actually there is a statement in verse 9, as the KJV and similar versions have it, that is used for a doctrinal teaching that is to be found nowhere else in Scripture. As the KJV translates it, it is the only place that puts the resurrection on the first day of the week. I then suggested that whenever the discussion of seventh day observance versus first day observance comes up, first day proponents usually use the idea of a first day resurrection to justify the change, and when questioned about the day of resurrection, quote Mark 16:9. The poster came back with: "Quote a published author who has done that." - I have not yet been able to come up with one. Does anyone here know of one?
The Epistle of Barnabas (which was in the earliest manuscripts) shows that Jesus rose on the 8th day (which just happens to be the first day of the week). This corresponds to the reason the male children were circumcised on the 8th day of the week.

Nowhere in scripture is the first day of the week ever referred to as the eighth day.

Nowhere does scripture say that a week consists of 8 days. Circumcision was to be performed when the child was 8 days old. That could be any day of the week. (Genesis 17:12)

The Espistle of Barnabas is scripture so there you have it that the 8th day was mentioned. And yes, the 8th day could be anyday of a natural week if thinking about it from an earthly perspective. You posted so I responded.

Good question.......

Matthew 27:50-54
50. And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit. And behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth shook and the rocks were split.
52. The tombs were opened, and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised;
53. and coming out of the tombs after His resurrection they entered the holy city and appeared to many.

54. Now the centurion, and those who were with him keeping guard over Jesus, when they saw the earthquake and the things that were happening, became very frightened and said, “Truly this was the Son of God!”


As we read in Luke they were coming with spices to prepare His body..... which was the first day of the week and His body was not there....

Luke 24:1-3
1. But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they came to the tomb bringing the spices which they had prepared.
2. And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb,
3. but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.

Blessings....

Cyber Munchkin,

I’m afraid I don’t see the relevance of your comments with regard to the OP. I wonder if you might elaborate a bit?

Well, just thought I would give you the scripture in Matt., I believe showing the time period of His resurrection ... which by the scripture in Matthew was not the first day of the week.....

And the scripture in Luke, Mark, states His body was not there in the tomb when Mary came after the sabbath, the first day of the week.....

Maybe I misunderstood your OP and "I made the mistake of sticking my nose into the discussion"....
