I read this post and had to share it with you all. I have tried to explain this before: Jesus was crucified and buried on a preparation day for the High Sabbath that always follows Passover, and not on the preparation day for the weekly sabbath. I think it is that misconception alone that accounts for the traditional Friday-Sunday timeline we have today, and the miles of straw-grasping apologetics that have resulted from it.
This post is very clear and easy to understand! Enjoy!
Here’s an excerpt, to give you an idea of what you’ll be reading:
“Did you catch the problem here? John tells us it was still dark when Mary went to the tomb on Sunday morning and found it empty. Jesus was already resurrected well before daybreak. Thus He wasn’t in the tomb any of the daylight portion of Sunday, so none of that can be counted as a day.”
