DID JESUS REALLY SPEND THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS IN THE TOMB?

Matt 12:40; 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.

Mark 14:42-43;And now when the even was come, because it was the preparation, that is, the day before the sabbath, Joseph of Arimathaea, an honourable counsellor, which also waited for the kingdom of God, came, and went in boldly unto Pilate, and craved the body of Jesus.

Matt 28:1; In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.

These 3 scriptures prove three things;

1. That Jesus would spend 3 days and three nights in the tomb.

2. That the day he died was the 'preparation' day, the day before the sabbath which is the 14th day of the month of Nisan, the day of passover.

3. That HE rose again on the morning of the 1st day of the week, which today is sunday, according to Matt 28:1.

Now if we calculate carefully we will see that if Jesus died on the preparation day, 14th of Nisan on passover, the day before the Sabbath, we will find that the days do not coincide with what Jesus said in Matt 12:40.

Thus my question, did Jesus really spend three days and three nights in the tomb as HE said HE would in Matt 12:40, or did HE not? Was HE wrong? Were Matthew, Mark, Luke and John wrong in recording that Jesus rose again on the morning of the 1st day of the week?

HAVE WE ALL BEEN DUPED INTO BELIEVING A LIE?

@ Nafi,

Vinaka vakalevu brother.

How do you explain the apparent contradiction in the scripture as per Matt 12:40; Matt 28:1, and the fact that Christ died on the 14th of Nisan (passover), which is the 6th day of the week, was in the tomb on the Sabbath, and rose up again on the morning of the 1st day of the week?

Considering that, did HE actually spend 3 days and 3 nights in the tomb? How do you answer my brother?

VL,

 My point man in this argument would be Paul/Saul;

If Paul, an educated man of his time believed that Jesus rose from the dead after 3 days,then it must be so.

Because he was a convert and well educated,he must have must have critically analyzed the details of death and resurrection(including the 3 day) of Jesus before making the statement in 1st Corinthians 15:1-4:

  " Now, brothers and sisters, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand. By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain. 

  For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,.."

Anyway,personally i don't care how long He was dead,whats important to me is that He rose again.

@ James,

Thank you my brother, each to his own.

God Bless.

heres a couple of  questions you need to think about before answering the Discussed question;-

-How do you define Day?
-How do you define Night?
-Does the HEART OF THE EARTH means Tomb??
-Why did Jesus use the example of Jonah?

If you could answer those question correctly then you shall be able to answer the question as discussed on this thread...

vinaka.

@ J.T.Law,

Vinaka brother. Taro bibi e tarogi tiko e loma oqo, ka vuqa na tamata e na levu ga ni vakarorogo tu ga vei talatala kei na ka e kaya na i vakavuvuli ni soqosoqo lotu sa sega ni via vakarogoca vakatitobu na vosa ni Kalou.

Isaiah 8:20;To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

Dua na leqa levu ni da sa mai ciqoma na i vakavuvuli vaka tamata ka da sa sega ni via ciqoma na dina kei na rarama ni vosa ni Kalou. Brother, na taro koya e tarogi tiko oqo ni ko ni na vakekeli vaka titobu ko na raica ni veimatalotu taucoko wili kina na lotu ni kavitu e da buturaka tu na NONA siga tabu dina na Kalou. Raica dua na quote se qai biuta cake ya o Joe Bose me baleta na nodra calendation principles na Jiu. Very interesting how the Jews calculated their days. Tovolea mo vakeli ratou mada na Karaites.

We read two things in the bible that Christ and Paul taught us about the Jews.

John 4:22;Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.

Romans 3:1-4;What advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit is there of circumcision? Much every way: chiefly, because that unto them were committed the oracles of God. For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar.

Rau tukuna toka vakamatata qori ko Jisu kei Paula ni na vu mai vei ira na Jiu na veivakabulai, ka ko Paula e tukuna ni ko ira e ra digitaki me ra maroroya na 'oracles of God' se na 'vosa' ni Kalou, ka sa i koya na i vola tabu e da taura wavoki toka qo e na noda dui vei siga tabu. Sa dodonu kina me da dau dikevi ira vakamata na Jiu, da kua ni da via vakabulia e levu tale na i vakamacala ka sega ni yavutaki e na dina ni vosa ni kalou ka ra a karona ka mareqeta mai na Jiu e na dua na taba gauna.

Sa dodonu me da vakataki ira mai Peria;

"And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews. These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so. Therefore many of them believed; also of honourable women which were Greeks, and of men, not a few. Acts 17:10-12

Me da vakekeli vakalevu brother. Sa voleka dina na siga ni lewa. Sa voleka na NONA lesu mai na Turaga!!! Me vaka na ka e kaya ko Paula;

1 Thess 5:1-6; But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.

Brother sa sega ni qai gauna ni moce qo, sa gauna me da yadra mai. Sa yawa na gauna ni noda vakabauta sa voleka na gauna ni noda vakabulai. E da na kila vakacava ni sa voleka na nona lesu mai na Turaga? Na parofisai e na tukuna vei kedaru taciqu. Ia dua talega na ka e na rawa ni tukuna vei kedaru ke daru kila na NONA calendar na Kalou.

Genesis 1:14-19;And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. 19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

Brother, e tukuna vakamatata tu qori na Kalou na ka e donu me da vakayagataka me da kila kina na siga mai na bogi, na seasons (mo'ed-religious festivals), signs (which also includes the Sabbath-Ezekiel 20:12,20), kei na yabaki. Na i vola ni vula oqo e ra vakayagata tiko na Jiu me yacova mai na gauna i Karisito, ka'u vakavinavinaka vei brother Joe Bose e na nona lift taka mai na quote ya mai na internet to prove this exact point. Raica na rarama ya brother e duri tu kina na yalewa ni Revelation 12:1;

"And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:"

What firmament did God set in the heavens? HE said it in Genesis 1:1-5, 14-19. Whatever God ordains will be forever. In Isaiah 66:23;And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD.

Ke sa vakatakila vei kedaru na nodaru Kalou na nona i vola ni vula mai na i vakatekivu kei vuravura, the only next logical question is to ask whether we are using these calendar principles. When we ask ourselves, we find that we are using the Gregorian calendar instituted by Pope Gregory in 1582 to make uniform the observance of easter which we well know is a pagan day. If you care to research the origins of saturday you will find that it goes right back to Nimrod.

Na ka e vakadomobula kina na ka qo brother ni lotu ni kavitu e claim taka in accordance with Ezekiel 20:12,20 that the saturday sabbath is the seal of God. Yes the 7th day sabbath is the seal of God, but not the saturday 7th day sabbath created by the pope.

Brother, rarama qo sega ni rarama ni muri wale. It is just you and your God. Tukuna o Jisu;

John 14:15;If ye love me, keep my commandments.

Who will you follow, the pope, the devil and their calendar, or God and HIS calendar set from the Creation week?

Nomu na digidigi JT, nomu na galala brother.

But remember;

Revelation 22:10-15;And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand. 11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. 12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. 13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. 14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. 15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

Ecclesiastes 12:13,14; Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

Brother, na Kalou e sa tekivu vakalesuya ki na nona 'remnant' (Rev 12:17) na rarama ni nona calendar, and this light deals with time. Ask yourself, 'why time? Look at the sins in the world now, heed again the words of prophecy and listen to the words of Christ;

Luke 17:26-30;And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. 27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. 28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; 29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. 30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.

Brother, ni ko sa raica na vakasisila ni bula kei na kena sa tekivu yaco wavokiti vuravra tu qo na i valu, waluvu, veivakamatematei kei na i valavala ca e vuqa, what do you think will happen?

Matthew 24:32,33;Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: 33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.

Brother, nodaru i vakabula sa tukituki tu qori e na matada ni yaloda na tamata e da kaya ni da lotu va Karisito me da rai ga vua ka nuitaki koya duadua ga. Qai vakabibi sara ko keda e da kaya ni da 'remnant church.'

God Bless you JT. Vakaukauwa brother. Tu vaka tagane taciqu. Sa voleka na nodaru i vakabula. Maranatha!!!!!

Taro me da taroga brother, are we using God's calendar or whose calendar are we using?

let me provide some insight to the meaning of In The Heart of Earth

one must not conclude that the Heart of the Earth means Tomb. The is no passage in the Bible to support that.
To define Heart of the Earth, one must take the case of Jonah into context.


When Jonah was in the Belly of the Fish, who was in control the Fish or Jonah?...the Fish was...Jonah was taken whereever the fish goes...so he was helpless because he was a captive in the belly of the fish....


When Jesus said as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish or the whale, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth, He wasn’t talking about the tomb or vault.  He was talking about the heart of the earth meaning the clutches of the world.

You see, every time the mob tried to destroy Jesus or stone Jesus or throw Him off a cliff through His whole Ministry, He was untouchable.  He walked right through their midst, He disappeared, He became invisible; they never were able to harm Him in any way because He was under His Father’s protection.  But in the Garden of Gethsemane Thursday night when He said quite specifically, ‘Now is the hour of darkness…’ then the mob came.  They tied Him up, they beat Him, and He began suffering for the sins of the world.

See He didn’t start suffering for the sins of the world when He was on the Cross and the nails pierced His flesh.  The suffering began in the Garden of Gethsemane, where He was taken from place to place and beaten and mobbed.  He went from Pilate to Herod and back to Pilate again.  He went from Caiaphas to Anna and back to Caiaphas and  – He was just drug all over the place during that period – and being mocked and whipped and thorns on His head and, He was suffering for the sins of the world.  He was a captive to the devil the same way Jonah went wherever the whale went.  See Jonah was a captive to the whale.  He was in that dark, hopeless environment for three days and three nights the same way that Jesus was in the clutches of the world, the clutches of the lost world, for three days and three nights.

When He prayed the third time, ‘Not my will, but Thy will be done’, and He said to His disciples you can sleep on because now is the hour of darkness – He made it very clear – this is the starting point.  The mob came.  He told Peter put away your sword; this is why I came into the world.  From Thursday night, Friday night, Saturday night He was taking the penalty for our sins, which is punishment and death, not just death – punishment and death.  And He suffered and He died, starting Thursday night, Friday night, Saturday.  So that’s the crux of that misunderstanding.  It has nothing to do with the tomb.


i hope that shed some light into the discussion

vinaka.

@ JT,

Vinaka vakalevu brother. Dua noqu taro, was Jonah roaming around OUTSIDE the belly of the fish for 1 day, and then spent the other two days IN the belly of the fish?

You see, Christ in pointing to the the situation of Jonah was specifically referring the Pharisees to what actually happened with Jonah, to prove to them and to us that just as it was actually the case for Jonah, it will also be the case for HIM; and also to show to all and anyone that wishes to doubt that Christ IS the Son of God. That is the miracle for all to see. That HE died and rose from the grave just as HE prophesied HE would.

Matt 12:40;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.

Strong's Concordance defines the word 'heart' as #2588  kardia  kar-dee'-ah prolonged from a primary kar (Latin cor, "heart"); the heart, i.e. (figuratively) the thoughts or feelings (mind); also (by analogy) the middle:--(+ broken-)heart(-ed).

The same book defines the earth as #1093  ge  ghay contracted from a primary word; soil; by extension a region, or the solid part or the whole of the terrene globe (including the occupants in each application):--country, earth(-ly), ground, land, world.

In trying to reach a clearer understanding of what Christ meant in Matt 12:40 and what actually happened to HIM, we need to take that definition that exactly fit the facts of the matter, otherwise we are trying to twist the word of god to fit our preconceived ideas. We must bring our minds to the subjection of the word of God, not the other way around.

To take your argument, we must the ask ourselves, was Jonah in the mind of the fish for one day before he then was 'physically' in its belly for the other two days? We would have to ask the fish this question, wouldn't you agree? Therefore, we must logically conclude that Christ wanted to make a point to the Pharisees who wanted to doubt HIM and what HE claims. Again, HE wanted to point us to Jonah's situation because HE wants to make a point not only for the Pharisees, but for the whole world. Only Christ can do what HE did as ordained by God.

You see the problem lies in the fact that the bible says that Christ rose at dawn the morning of the first day. Even if you choose to use the Jewish reckoning of time, we will still be short by one night, since computation must begin from the evening of the preparation day, or the passover day, the 14th of Nisan. This is the problem that the whole of the Christian world stumbles to try to explain. But the explanation is simple if you go back to the root Greek Septuagint bible and do a word comparison and word study to find the problem.

Try to read the word studies I have uploaded and then come back and discuss further.

God Bless bro.

THIS THREAD IS NOT INTENDED FOR THOSE WHO ARE NOT WILLING TO SEARCH THE BIBLE TO PROVE THAT THE WORD OF GOD IS ALWAYS RIGHT.

Matt 12:40; 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.

Here our Lord was conversing with the Pharisees who wanted to see a miracle or a sign from Jesus proving that HE was and is the Son of God. Christ pointed them to Jonas and told them that just as Jonas was ‘actually’ 3 days and 3 nights in the belly of the fish, so will HE be in the heart of the earth. That was the only thing which they should anticipate to prove to them that HE is what HE claims to be. It was a prophecy which was yet to be fulfilled just a short while into their future. Jesus proved that to them and us when HE rose as predicted.

Matthew 28:1-6; In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre. 2And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. 3His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: 4And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men5And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. 6He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.

Here, it says that as the sabbath has passed and “as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week”, the two Marys came to the tomb where Christ was buried to find it empty, and there and angel of the Lord told them that ‘he is risen.’ This proves that Christ rose sometime at dawn on the first day of the week.

Mark 15:42,43; 42And now when the even was come, because it was the preparation, that is, the day before the sabbath, 43Joseph of Arimathaea, an honourable counsellor, which also waited for the kingdom of God, came, and went in boldly unto Pilate, and craved the body of Jesus.

This verse proves that the day that Jesus died was the day before the sabbath, the preparation day, the Passover which is the 14th day of Nisan. Jesus the ‘TYPE’ fulfilled only the ‘antitype’ which began centuries before when the Jews were set free from bondage in Egypt. This is confirmed in;

Exodus 12:1-6; 1And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying, 2This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you. 3Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house: 4And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbour next unto his house take it according to the number of the souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb. 5Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats: 6And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening.

Jesus; the Lamb that taketh away the sin of the world, John 1:29, was crucified in the evening of the day before the sabbath, the preparation day, the 14th day of the 1st month for the Jews, which is the month of Nisan.

Now, the problem arises when one reads and calculates the days from the time when Christ died to the time that Matthew refers to in Matthew 28:1. Irrespective of whether you calculate the time using our 24 hour period or even the time reckoning of the Jews, it would appear that Christ lied to us in Matthew 12:40. I do not believe that Christ would lie to us, but the problem is staring us right in the face; and for those who are willing, they would admit that there is definitely a problem. What is the problem??????

My question is this, could words have been added and thus the meaning altered when the bible was translated from the original Hebrew and Greek texts?

If you are willing to dig further to know the truth. Download a copy of e-sword from this website http://www.e-sword.net/downloads.html install and run e-sword on your PC or laptop, open it then go to the download menu click on it then download the Old and The New Testament bibles in the original Hebrew text, then also download the Old and the New Testament bibles in the original Greek bible which is also called the ‘Septuagint’ bible. Then download the word studies I have uploaded at the end of this thread and then find out for yourself when Christ actually rose from the grave.

When you have done that, then come back here and make your comment. If not, then any comments you make on this thread is unfair, biased and does not reflect a mind of a person intelligent enough to want to know the truth as it is in the word of God.

Hosea 4:6; 6My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

HAPPY READING AND HAPPY STUDYING!!!!
