I believe that Jesus was in the tomb for 3 days and 3 nights but also believe He rose on the third day. My explanation for this is that Jesus was in the tomb for an entire day before it was officially sealed. So from the time it was officially sealed it would have been the beginning of the 3rd day when He Rose. However, He actually would have already been in the tomb for 3 days since the first day He was in the tomb would have been during the Feast of unleavened Bread. However, the account shows that day was when the Priests REQUESTED the official sealing of the tomb.

If I said I will give you 1 million dollars *3* days from now at noon, what day would you get the money?

I'm not an atheist but I have much more in common with them than with bible thumpers. If it pains you to think of Jesus with a chubby girlfriend then by all means, don't think of it.

I would say Wednesday. But I'm not sure what that has to do with this.

TroutDude, I have been around a long time and I already learned long ago that the people that attack Christ can only do so because Christ has allowed it to happen for His purposes.

If you consider my posts to be an attack on Christ, you are indeed the most delicate of Christian snowflakes. It's a wonder you can get through the average day.

Yes, I would consider it an attack on Christ. With Christ, I get through every day.

Mar_8:31 And he began to teach them, that the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders, and of the chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again.


Mat_27:63 Saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said, while he was yet alive, After three days I will rise again.


Mat_17:23 And they shall kill him, and the third day he shall be raised again. And they were exceeding sorry.


Luk_9:22 Saying, The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be slain, and be raised the third day.


As you can see. We have AFTER three days but we also have on the Third day.



Mat 27:62 Now the next day, that followed the day of the preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees came together unto Pilate,
Mat 27:63 Saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said, while he was yet alive, After three days I will rise again.
Mat 27:64 Command therefore that the sepulchre be made sure until the third day, lest his disciples come by night, and steal him away, and say unto the people, He is risen from the dead: so the last error shall be worse than the first.



So when this sealing takes place it would actually have been a 4th day that they were commanding the tomb to be sealed to.
