Page 25 - A True Gospel Chronology from the Crucifixion to the Resurrection
P. 25

 16 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.
17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,
18 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.
He made the sun to rule the day and the moon to rule the night. He set these lights in the heaven to rule over the day and over the night: day and night. Having created this system of keeping time divided between day and night, light and dark, God saw that it was good. Why would He all of a sudden decide to frame His words by the tradition of those who hated Him?
Three periods of day can only refer to three 12 hour periods of daylight. Three periods of night can only refer to three 12 hour periods of darkness. Hence, Three Days and Three Nights can only refer to three 24 hour periods.
When we let the time speak for itself, we will be able to avoid so much confusion.
Laying aside the crutch of the strange rabbinic math that so many depend upon, the only logical conclusion that one can come to, when Jesus said, “three days and three nights,” He meant exactly that, three full days, a full 72 hour period.
Acceptance of this fact, requires that we rethink our conventional timeline of Friday evening to Sunday morning.
                                                                                                                                                                                                         21
