Did Jesus Died On Good Friday And Rose Early Sunday Morning?

I look at it like this: Jesus said 3 days and 3 nights. If He had said just 3 days, we could assume parts of days, but He explicitly stated 3 days and 3 nights.

Yes He did. Now think about it just a little more closely. Hebrews reason time as evening to morning thus if meant as literal 12 hour segments He would have said 3 nights and 3 days.

So besides the fact that ten times the word explicitly says that the resurrection would take place on the "third day" (Mat.16:21; 17:23; 20:19; Mark 9:31; 10:34, Luke 9:22; 13:32; 18:33; 24:7,46), take a look at another example (there are more).

See Esther 4

15 Then Esther bade them return Mordecai this answer,

16 Go, gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and fast ye for me, and neither eat nor drink three days, night or day: I also and my maidens will fast likewise; and so will I go in unto the king, which is not according to the law: and if I perish, I perish. (thus 3 days both day and night would mean a full 72 hours later according to your reasoning...but read on)

17 So Mordecai went his way, and did according to all that Esther had commanded him.

Now 5

5 Now it came to pass on the third day that Esther put on her royal apparel, and stood in the inner court of the king's house, over against the king's house: and the king sat upon his royal throne in the royal house, over against the gate of the house.

On the third day....Hmmm? Shall I show you more?

And my study shows third day. Case closed :)

To me this issue has no great value in my worship, I do not keep Easter as a day above any other, but I am glad the Lord is brought to the mind of some that generally do not consider Him. I think it seems reasonable that the Lord would have been speaking to the Jews in the tradition of the Jews. If the tradition is that a day is any part of that day, then their is no contradiction with the Words of the Lord. Only when man demands that he had to be speaking of a 24 hour day, does a contradiction arise. Now much like many things in scripture, if God says 10 min in a day is a day, then its a day. If God says the earth was created in 6 days, then its 6 days. Whether we understand how He counts time or not. For a day to the Lord is as a thousand years and a thousand years is as a day. If the Father chooses to keep His beloved Son in the depths for as short a time as possible and yet fulfill His word, then who can debate with Father for doing such a good thing?

1 Timothy 1:4-7

1 Timothy 1:4-7
New King James Version (NKJV)
4 nor give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which cause disputes rather than godly edification which is in faith. 5 Now the purpose of the commandment is love from a pure heart, from a good conscience, and from sincere faith, 6 from which some, having strayed, have turned aside to idle talk, 7 desiring to be teachers of the law, understanding neither what they say nor the things which they affirm.

as I understand above, it means not only to put "do not throw your garbage here" but to tell where the trash can is....

they affirm not the traditions of man... but have no idea why it need not to be affirmed....

No one is teaching the law? Not in these last few post anyway, so not sure you understand the purpose of that scripture?

Selective literalism, always makes for poor doctrine. But let each scripture bear witness to the truth of the other and much of these issues can be brought to a place of truth and understanding.

And you didn't read my study and you're clinging onto tradition, just like the Jews :)
Well Abdicate, Im sure you have solid reasons why you believe what you believe and if I read your study I would most likely agree with parts of your reasoning and disagree with others. Just as your statement that "you take the bible literally" No, what you are doing is you are taking selective scriptures literally and demanding that others agree and follow along with your logic. But I can see the error of your biblical perspective on this thread, and am very aware of this sort of error in biblical understanding. Selective literalism does not prove anything other than those who use this sort of biblical logic are not keeping a standard that allows for reasonable discussion on an issue such as this. (and they never keep that literal standard beyond what they are trying to prove) I believe you have some good points, but don't try to force certain scriptures on me as being literal when I know how to reason within the truth of scripture.

I'm glad you know it all :)
Did not make that claim? But by the grace of God I am what I am and I know the selective literalism of some is how error is built upon error. I hope you will be more thoughtful and honest in your attempts to proclaim the truth?

Bro Tan. I wrote a huge study on the Chronology of Man According to Scriptures and you are correct, Jesus died on the 14 Nisan along with all the Passover lambs. The Jews, even in Jesus' day execute the Passover on the 15th instead of the 14th as God stated. This happened because the Rabbinical Jews (aka Pharisees) do not hold the word of God in absolute authority but hold tradition and teachings of man in higher regard. They'll tell you so too. This is why their tallits do not have a blue ribbon as prescribed in the Torah. Jesus died on Wednesday, just like the original Passover, and a couple of hours later it was Thursday. Israel departed Egypt on 15 Nisan exactly 430 years after God's prophecy to Abraham. Jesus rose from the dead sometime after sunset Saturday (i.e. the beginning of Sunday, the first day of the week.)

You have part of it correct, Jesus died on a Wednesday night. On another post I'm going to break all that down, according to the Bible.

(John 18:39) But ye have a custom, that I should release unto you one at the passover: will ye therefore that I release unto you the King of the Jews? (40) Then cried they all again, saying, Not this man, but Barabbas. Now Barabbas was a robber.
Remember Mark (15:42) Joseph craved the body of Jesus the evening of the Passover. Now one can see that this was towards the end of the Passover.
3 Days and 3 Nights
The scriptures explain how Jesus was in the earth 3 days and 3 nights just as He had foretold.

How It Really Happened

3 Days and 3 Nights

SU M T W TH F S

Days 1 1 1
Nights 1 1 1

In looking at the previous scriptures one should now have a better understanding, as to what took place. Remember Mary did not come to the Grave site until the first day of the week which is Sunday. (John 20:1) "The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulcher", And it was early in the morning and it was still dark. But Jesus had already risen. That's because Jesus went into His grave right before the end of the Passover or Wed. evening. The passing of the Passover brought in the Feast of the Unleavened Bread.

So Jesus would Have been in the Grave Wednesday night, Thursday daytime and Thursday night, Friday daytime, Friday night, Saturday daytime and Jesus rose right before the sun went down on Saturday. Hence one has the 3 days and 3 nights which Jesus prophesied.

His death Wednesday night is consistent with the comment of the prophet Daniel, stating the Messiah would be cut off (killed) in the midst of the week.

Daniel 9:26-27 26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. 27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week (Wednesday is the middle of the week) he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, (Remember, Jesus is the sacrificial Passover Lamb).
 
So Jesus would Have been in the Grave Wednesday night, Thursday daytime and Thursday night, Friday daytime,Friday night, Saturday daytime and Jesus rose right before the sun went down on Saturday. Hence one has the 3 days and 3 nights which Jesus prophesied.

So according to this (see the underlined section) Jesus rose just before the end of the 7th day Sabbath not on the 1st day of the week (feast of first fruits). Am I understanding you correctly?

Brother Paul not sure about where your post is concerning how the Jews reckon days and nights? It is clear that in context the Lord was speaking to the Jews "That generation" so if you could repost that info or tell me more of what you know about that issue?

Am not sure what you meant by that question in red....
Well the scripture (you used) is a rebuke of those who are trying to teach the law of Moses. I did not see the relation of what I had read on this thread to the scripture you posted?
7 desiring to be teachers of the law, understanding neither what they say nor the things which they affirm.

i think it is....

"myths and endless genealogies....

Such things promote controversial speculations.....

rather than advancing God’s work—which is by faith."
