Sign
The Pharisees asked Jesus for a sign to prove that He is the Messiah. The only sign Jesus gave them is the sign of the prophet Jonah.
"For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the whale so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth."Mathew12:39-40.John 11:9 shows Jesus referred to the amount of sunlight in a day as 12 hours. So Jesus knew exactly what He was talking about and He meant 72 hours. But the problem is people have been trying for ages to cramp three days and three nights into 36 hours from good Friday to Easter Monday morning.A true believer will believe whatever comes out of His mouth and if you believed in the Jesus who was buried for 36 hours and rose again on an Easter Monday then you are denying the real YAHUSHUWAH who died for your sins.
Day of Death
Jesus Himself predicted the day He will be crusified in.
"Ye know that after two days is the feast of Passover and the Son of man is betrayed to be crucified."Mathew 261-2. He said he is going to be killed on the day of Passover. Jesus was crucified in the year 31.A.D and according to the Jewish calender, the Passover for that year fell on a Wednesday.
Israel used to observe Passover by killing an unblemished lamb and smearing the blood on every doorpost in order to escape the angel of death.
1Corinthians 5:7 says that Christ is now our Passover as He was sacrificed and His blood shed in order for true believers to escape death. Jesus was crucified and buried on the day of Passover,31.A.D.
Preparation Day
All four Gospel testifies that Jesus was crucified on preparation day.Preparation day is a day before a Sabbath.But John was very specific. "..because it was preparation day, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the Sabbath (for that Sabbath was an high day)."John 19:31.A high day means it was an annual Sabbath. It is not an ordinary weekly seventh day Sabbath.It also can fall on any day of the week.
Key in Leviticus
Leviticus 23:5-7."In the fourteenth day of the same month at even is the Lord's Passover. And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread... Ye shall have no servile work therein." Here we can see that the Passover was also that day of preparation meant by the Gospels.Jesus died on Passover which was also preparation day. "And that day was the preparation day and the Sabbath and drew on."Luke 23:54.
Sabbath After Passover
Mark 16:1 "And when the Sabbath came past Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of James and Salome had bought sweet spices so that they might come and annoint Him." This verse refers to the annual Sabbath (15th) after Passover(14 th).Jesus died around 3 pm and these women following the body to the burial before sunset would simply leave no time for shopping.
The Weekly Sabbath
Luke 23:56 "And they returned and prepared spices and ointments and rested the Sabbath day according to the COMMANDMENTS." Here Luke was referring to the weekly Sabbath as demanded by the Ten Commandments.The canonized Gospels were referring to two Sabbaths in the same week all along. After the burial on the even of Passover(Wednesday) they rested for the annual Sabbath of unleavened bread(Thursday).The next day would be Friday and the women collected and prepared spices and ointments. Then they again rested for the weekly Sabbath(Saturday)
Matthew 28:1 "In the end of the Sabbath as it began to dawn towards the first day of the week came Mary Magdalene..." The inspired Greek text reads "after the Sabbaths." It is plural meaning more than one Sabbath in that particular week. While many points to these as contradictions in the four Gospels, they are in fact complementing each.
Risen
According to Mark15:34 Jesus died around the ninth hour of daylight which is around 3pm and was buried the same day before the Passover or Wednesday sunset. So three days and there nights later would end just before the sunset on Saturday or the seventh day of the week or the Lord's day.Jesus Christ did not rise from the dead on Sunday morning.
May God be glorified for unwavering love

Can you please this verse in the bible... Let Us create Man in Our own image,

Who is this US or Our refering to. Is this Us refering to Me, Myself and I or more than 1 being.

Vinaka Tomasi. Nai Vola Tabu ga e rawa ni sauma nomu vakatataro.

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." John 1:1

O Joni na tisaepeli voleka taudua vei Jisu gauna e se bula voli kina e na vuravura qo. Na veika titobu kece baleta na Kalou e a wasea tu vua o Jisu. E vakamatatataka tu oqori o Joni ni rau lewe rua na Kalou. Na Vosa sa qai mai sucu me tamata ka qai mai vakatokai me yacana o Yahushuah se ko Jisu ka sa da kila levu tu oqo

How Could Jesus Have Remained in the Tomb Three Days and Three Nights if He was Crucified on Friday?

 

 

Jesus prophesied in Matthew 12:40 (NASB) that “just as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the sea monster, so shall the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.”

The accounts of His death and resurrection as given in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John indicate that Jesus was crucified and buried on Friday, before sundown, which is the beginning of the next day for the Jews, and resurrected on the first day of the week, which is our Sunday, before sunrise.

This puts Jesus in the grave for part of Friday, the entire Sabbath, and part of Sunday. In other words, two full nights, one full day and part of two days, He was in the tomb. Since this is clearly not three full, twenty-four-hour days, do we have a problem of conflict with the prophecy of Jesus in Matthew 12:40?

In Mark 8:31 and Matthew 16:21, Jesus is recorded as saying, “The Son of man will rise again after three days,” and “He will be raised again on the third day”—expressions that are used interchangeably. This can be seen from the fact that the most references to the resurrection state that it occurred on the third day.

Also, Jesus, in addition to the Matthew 12:40 passage, spoke of His resurrection in John 2:19–22, stating that He would be raised up in three days (not the fourth day).

Matthew 27:63 (KJV) gives weight to this idiomatic usage. After the Pharisees tell Pilate of the prediction of Jesus, “After three days I will rise again,” they ask for a guard to secure the tomb until the third day.

If the phrase, “after three days,” was not interchangeable with the “third day,” the Pharisees would have asked for a guard for the fourth day.

That the expression “one day and one night” was an idiom employed by the Jews for indicating a day, even when only a part of a day was indicated, can be seen also in the Old Testament.

For example, I Samuel 30:12, 13 (KJV), “For he had not eaten bread or drunk water for three days and three nights,” and in the next verse, “My master left me behind… three days ago.”

Just as clearly, Genesis 42:17 shows this idiomatic usage. Joseph imprisoned his brothers for three days; in verse 18, he speaks to them and releases them, all on the third day.

The phrases, “after three days” and “on the third day,” are not contradictory, either to each other or with Matthew 12:40, but simply idiomatic, interchangeable terms, clearly a common mode of Jewish expression.

Vinaka Joe.
It is either you are with the Bible or you are against the Bible. All your points above have been addressed by the start of this discussion.Please read again to clear things up.
Joe can't you get it into your mind that the Scripture refers to two Sabbaths in the crucifixion week?
The evidence are there for you to work out.

 

URS the scripture is very clear Jesus was resurrected on Sunday. I don't have to work out anything God already did it for me. All I did was simply accept it and believed it. Because Jesus rose from the dead:

 

Blood Bought Benefits

 

 

 

The blood of Jesus:

 

(1)  Gives SALVATION. Births us into His Kingdom and keeps us from eternal damnation.

 

He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. (Mark 16:16) NKJV

 

Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. (John 3:3, 17) NKJV

 

(2)  Makes ATONEMENT for us, blotting out sins.

 

For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood that makes atonement for the soul.’ (Leviticus 17:11) NKJV

 

And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation. (Romans 5:11) NKJV

 

(3)  REDEEMS us. Our life is paid for in full, bought back from the power of sin and death.

 

Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy, (Psalm 107:2) NKJV

 

In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace (Ephesians 1:7) NKJV

 

Not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own blood He entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption. (Hebrews 9:12) NKJV

 

And they sang a new song, saying: “You are worthy to take the scroll, And to open its seals; For You were slain, And have redeemed us to God by Your blood Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, (Revelation 5:9) NKJV

 

(4)  JUSTIFIES us. Acquits us of sin and guilt.

 

Therefore let it be known to you, brethren, that through this Man is preached to you the forgiveness of sins; and by Him everyone who believes is justified from all things from which you could not be justified by the law of Moses. (Acts 13:38-39) NKJV

 

Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. (Romans 5:9) NKJV

 

(5)  Makes us RIGHTEOUS. Puts us back into right standing with God.

 

But your iniquities have separated you from your God; And your sins have hidden His face from you, So that He will not hear. (Isaiah 59:2) NKJV

 

even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference; for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed, (Romans 3:22-23, 25) NKJV

 

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9) NKJV

 

(6)  Gives SANCTIFICATION. Sets us apart unto God at the time of salvation as well as each day thereafter through the blood of Jesus.

 

But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption— (1 Corinthians 1:30) NKJV

 

By that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified. (Hebrews 10:10, 14) NKJV

 

(7)  Allows REMISSION of sins. Sin was cancelled.

 

being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed, (Romans 3:24-25) NKJV

 

And according to the law almost all things are purified with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no remission. (Hebrews 9:22) NKJV

 

(8)  RECONCILES us. Accepting God’s provision, we can now fellowship with Him in love.

 

For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. (Romans 5:10) NKJV

 

and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross. (Colossians 1:20) NKJV

 

(9)  Gives OVERCOMING POWER as we receive and use what has been delegated to us.

 

Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. (Luke 10:19) NKJV

 

And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. (Revelation 12:11) NKJV

 

(10)       Provides DELIVERANCE. Releases us from powers of darkness and sets us free.

 

Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. (2 Corinthians 2:14) NKJV

 

He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, (Colossians 1:13) NKJV

 

(11)       Releases FORGIVENESS. Pardons sins.

 

in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins. (Colossians 1:14) NKJV

 

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9) NKJV

 

(12)       Establishes a NEW COVENANT. Replaces old covenant of sacrifices; perfect     sacrifice now has been made through Jesus Christ.

 

by so much more Jesus has become a surety of a better covenant. (Hebrews 7:22) NKJV

 

In that He says, “A new covenant,” He has made the first obsolete. Now what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to vanish away. (Hebrews 8:13) NKJV

 

And for this reason He is the Mediator of the new covenant, by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions under the first covenant, that those who are called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance. (Hebrews 9:15) NKJV

 

then He said, “Behold, I have come to do Your will, O God.” He takes away the first that He may establish the second. (Hebrews 10:9) NKJV

 

to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than that of Abel. (Hebrews 12:24) NKJV

 

(13)       CLEANSES us from all sin.

 

But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. (1 John 1:7) NKJV

we should be careful of what we try to accomplish from these forums cause it could confuse people,and run them off from the word when we misinterpret the bible and interject our doctrine and motive,you cant just interpret the bible just as it is,,literally,the whole bible is a mystery and without the anointing of God to interpret it to us(2pet1;20-21),well be the blind leading the blind,what we need is HIS REVELATION,just like he told peter in (mathew 16;17) when HE asked them who he was,16 Simon Peter answered, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God

,( 17And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.

flesh and blood hath not revealed it to you,,,,,no amount of human effort ,bible college or theology can tell you who jesus really is and what the hidden mysteries in the bible are,,its HIM,,,,REVEALING IT TO YOU,,,,1COR 12;3,,and no one can say, "Jesus is Lord," except by the Holy Spirit,,ITS A REVELATION FOLKS,,,,GOD HAVE MERCY ON US

Here's a commentary on Matthew 28:1-8.

Matthew 28:1-8
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. 2 And, 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. 3 His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: 4 And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men. 5 And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. 6 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. 7 And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you. 8 And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word. (KJV)

 

Commentary

For the proof of Christ’s resurrection, we have here the testimony of the angel, and of Christ himself, concerning his resurrection. Now we may think that it would have been better, if the matter had been so ordered, that a competent number of witnesses should have been present, and have seen the stone rolled away by the angel, and the dead body reviving, as people saw Lazarus come out of the grave, and then the matter had been past dispute; but let us not prescribe to Infinite Wisdom, which ordered that the witnesses of his resurrection should see him risen, but not see him rise. His incarnation was a mystery; so was this second incarnation (if we may so call it), this new making of the body of Christ, for his exalted state; it was therefore made in secret. Blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed. Christ gave such proofs of his resurrection as were corroborated by the scriptures, and by the word which he had spoken (Lu. 24:6, 7–44; Mk. 16:7); for here we must walk by faith, not by sight. We have here,

 

Observe, 1. When they came; in the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, v. 1. This fixes the time of Christ’s resurrection.

(1.) He arose the third day after his death; that was the time which he had often prefixed, and he kept within it. He was buried in the evening of the sixth day of the week, and arose in the morning of the first day of the following week, so that he lay in the grave about thirty-six or thirty-eight hours. He lay so long, to show that he was really and truly dead; and no longer, that he might not see corruption. He arose the third day, to answer the type of the prophet Jonas (ch. 12:40), and to accomplish that prediction (Hos. 6:2), The third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.

(2.) He arose after the Jewish sabbath, and it was the passover-sabbath; all that day he lay in the grave, to signify the abolishing of the Jewish feasts and the other parts of the ceremonial law, and that his people must be dead to such observances, and take no more notice of them than he did when he lay in the grave. Christ on the sixth day finished his work; he said, It is finished; on the seventh day he rested, and then on the first day of the next week did as it were begin a new world, and enter upon new work. Let no man therefore judge us now in respect of the new moons, or of the Jewish sabbaths, which were indeed a shadow of good things to come, but the substance if of Christ. We may further observe, that the time of the saints’ lying in the grave, is a sabbath to them (such as the Jewish sabbath was, which consisted chiefly in bodily rest), for there they rest from their labours (Job 3:17); and it is owing to Christ.

(3.) He arose upon the first day of the week; on the first day of the first week God commanded the light to shine out of darkness; on this day therefore did he who was to be the Light of the world, shine out of the darkness of the grave; and the seventh-day sabbath being buried with Christ, it arose again in the first-day sabbath, called the Lord’s day (Rev. 1:10), and no other day of the week is from henceforward mentioned in all the New Testament than this, and this often, as the day which Christians religiously observed in solemn assemblies, to the honour of Christ, Jn. 20:19, 26; Acts 20:7; 1 Co. 16:2. If the deliverance of Israel out of the land of the north superseded the remembrance of that out of Egypt (Jer. 23:7, 8), much more doth our redemption by Christ eclipse the glory of God’s former works. The sabbath was instituted in remembrance of the perfecting of the work of creation, Gen. 2:1. Man by his revolt made a breach upon that perfect work, which was never perfectly repaired till Christ arose from the dead, and the heavens and the earth were again finished, and the disordered hosts of them modelled anew, and the day on which this was done was justly blessed and sanctified, and the seventh day from that. He who on that day arose from the dead, is the same by whom, and for whom, all things were at first created, and now anew created.

(4.) He arose as it began to dawn toward that day; as soon as it could be said that the third day was come, the time prefixed for his resurrection, he arose; after his withdrawings from his people, he returns with all convenient speed, and cuts the work as short in righteousness as may be. He had said to his disciples, that though within a little while they should not see him, yet again a little while, and they should see him, and accordingly he made it as little a while as possible, Isa. 54:7, 8. Christ arose when the day began to dawn, because then the day-spring from on high did again visit us, Lu. 1:78. His passion began in the night; when he hung on the cross the sun was darkened; he was laid in the grave in the dusk of the evening; but he arose from the grave when the sun was near rising, for he is the bright and morning Star (Rev. 22:16), the true Light. Those who address themselves early in the morning to the religious services of the Christian sabbath, that they may take the day before them, therein follow this example of Christ, and that of David, Early will I seek thee.

Isa Joe,I thought you are a pastor or Talatala.Why are you quoting from mere human beings such as Henry M when you have the Holy Bible to quote from.I can't figure out why you have made it your mission to suppress this biblical truth.
Tradition have always referred to Sunday as the Lord's day thus they have always claimed that Revelation 1:10(I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day)refers to Sunday as the Lord's day.A quick look up at some verses shows that the Scripture does not think that way. Joe how cheap could you become since you claimed to be a man of God but twists the Scripture to suit your theory or doctrine.You better study the following verses: Exodus 20:10 "But the seventh is the Sabbath of THE LORD THY GOD."
Leviticus 23:3 "...seventh day is the Sabbath day of rest... it is the Sabbath of THE LORD.."
Deuteronomy 5:14 "But the seventh day is the Sabbath of THE LORD THY GOD."
Matthew 12:8,Luke 6:5 and Mark 2:28 all agrees that the Son of man is LORD ALSO OF THE SABBATH.

 

Ulaya your bible interpretations are straight out of the SDA (or one of its offshoot) teachings based on Ellen G White theology.

I've quoted Matthew 28:1-8 which disagree with your view "Jesus Christ did not rise from the dead on Sunday morning."

 

 

All four Gospels essentially agree in reporting the facts of the resurrection. The variety of details in each account supplement rather than contradict each other. The empty tomb was discovered In the end (Gr opse, used as improper preposition for “after”) of the sabbath agreeing with the other evangelists. By Jewish reckoning the day ended at sunset and the new day began at the same time. Thus, Saturday night by our reckoning was actually Sunday by their calendar. Accordingly, the resurrection actually occurred sometime during the night, for by the time the women arrived as it began to dawn He had already risen from the dead. The earthquake and the angel (Mark’s “man in white”), who rolled the stone away, did not come to let Jesus out of the tomb, but to reveal that it was empty and that He was gone already! Evidently Mary Magdalene left immediately to tell Peter and John. The angel told the other women, Fear not … He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. The pronoun “you” is emphatic: “you women, only, do not fear me” (as the guards did, who were paralyzed with terror). “They have come to see the grave, drawn there by sorrow, love, and, perhaps, inarticulate hope. For their loyalty and persistent love they hear first the news of the resurrection” (Filson, p. 302). The angel then instructed them to go unto Galilee to meet Him.

Bula Joe,It is healthy to engage in a conversation especially when it will determine your future to come.
Alright I want to introduce you to my Lord Jesus Christ who was killed and raised from the dead 3 days and 3 nights after the Passover of 31 A.D.
Now my Lord Jesus Christ Himself in Matthew 12:40 said that He will die and be buried for 3 days and 3 nights or 72 hours.
Because my Lord Jesus Christ said those words I cannot believe in anybody else like Allen G White or Thomas Nelson or even Henry M.They are nothing compared to my Lord Jesus Christ who created this earth,everything in it and the heavens as well.No amount of explanation would ever move my faith in His Words.
Now my Lord Jesus Christ was killed on the day of Passover, 31 A.D.According to history and the Jewish calendar, that was a Wednesday.
They buried my Lord Jesus Christ BEFORE SUNSET OR THE START OF THE SABBATH OF UNLEAVENED BREAD WHICH FALLS ON THURSDAY.
Believe me Joe my Lord Jesus Christ rose from the dead JUST AS HE PREDICTED. THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS LATER JUST BEFORE SUNSET ON SATURDAY OR THE LORD'S DAY OR THE SEVENTH DAY OF THE WEEK.
Now that is what I called faith in His Words.
There was no witness to His resurrection because He rose on the Sabbath. Everybody observed the Sabbath at home and nobody is moving around. Only when the Sabbath was over did they went to the graveyard. They arrived MY LORD JESUS CHRIST WAS NOWHERE TO BE SEEN IN THE TOMB BECAUSE EXACTLY 3 DAYS AND 3 NIGHTS FROM THE WEDNESDAY PASSOVER ENDED BEFORE SUNSET THE DAY BEFORE.
NOW MY LORD JESUS CHRIST LOVES EVERYBODY WHO BELIEVES IN HIM.
vinaka.

 

URS my "future" is secure in Jesus. I have no fear of the judgement to come. Unlike yourself you greatly fear the "investigative judgement" because you don't have a assurance of salvation in this life. This is the reason you have to keep on performing by keeping the LAW.

 

Why don't you put your complete trust in the "finished work" of the Lord Jesus Christ at Calvary instead of on your own deeds for your salvation.

 

Jesus Christ is the only one that save you from going to Hell. Please consider these points below:

 

By the blood of Jesus:

 

 

  1. 1.   We receive the remission (forgiveness) of our sins

Hebrews 9:14 how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? (NKJV)

 

  1. 8.   We are made holy and set apart for God

 

Hebrews 13:12 Therefore Jesus also, that He might sanctify the people with His own blood, suffered outside the gate. (NKJV)

  1. We can have new boldness to      approach God and ask for his help

 

Hebrews 10:19 Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, (NKJV)

 

  1. 10.  We can have ongoing cleansing from sin

 

1 John 1:7 But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. (NKJV)

 

  1. 11.  We can overcome the enemy
