Are there three days between Friday and Sunday?

Listen to Nancy's full response on Mornings with Kelli and Steve on Moody Radio here!

It's important to be able to answer this question because people have walked away from their faith due to what they have perceived as an error in Scripture. However, we need to take into account the historical and cultural understanding of measuring days at that time. In the Jewish way of calculating days, any part of a day and night counts as a complete period. Thursday night is included as night one because the Jewish day starts at 6:00 pm and ends at 6:00 pm the following evening. Jesus being buried on Friday afternoon and rising on Sunday morning would have been considered three days and three nights.

The lady is in error, The Prophet Daniel in chapter 9:25-27 prophised the death of the Lord, He was to be cut off in thr midst of the week, she was right in how to count the days, Jesus waa crucified on Wednesday before the sun went down, tha next day Thursday was a high sabbath day , which alwaya come the day after the passover so they had to take Him of the cross before the sun went down because of the high day sabbath it was not the weekly sabbath.:So Wednesday night he was in the grave, Thursday day , Thursday night, in the grave, friday day, friday night and saturday day, and he rose on the Sabbath day, when Mary came it was early sunday morning when it was yet dark . I hope that you will go to Leviticus chapter 11 and learn of God's high Sabbaths.
