    EASTER


    The word 'Easter' is found ONLY in Acts12:4 -- it's the word 'pascha' (passover) in the Greek, and thought by some to refer to a goddess Ishtar. But a great time of year IMO. amen?

    Doncha know how many happy children have chased down those eggs, oblivious to how baby rabbits don't come from eggs, no matter how brightly colored..

    Bummer Friday! Days of week not named in Scripture, though we usually accept the Jewish Sabbath beginning Friday at sunset.. The practice of 'Good Friday' coming from the wrong notion about Jesus being crucified on that day -- I'd propose calling it "Ugh Friday" if that were really the case..

    Greek:

    ὃν καὶ πιάσας ἔθετο εἰς φυλακήν, παραδοὺς τέσσαρσιν τετραδίοις στρατιωτῶν φυλάσσειν αὐτόν, βουλόμενος μετὰ τὸ πάσχα ἀναγαγεῖν αὐτὸν τῷ λαῷ.

    Mark 15:43-43,

    42When evening had already come, because it was the preparation day, that is, the day before the Sabbath, 43Joseph of Arimathea came, a prominent member of the Council, who himself was waiting for the kingdom of God; and he gathered up courage and went in before Pilate, and asked for the body of Jesus.…


    Mark 16:1-3,

    1When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, bought spices, so that they might come and anoint Him. 2Very early on the first day of the week, they came to the tomb when the sun had risen. 3They were saying to one another, "Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance of the tomb?"…


    Leaves no doubt that he was crucified on a Friday.

    Friday being the sixht day, Hebrew "yom hashishi" --also "day of the linen cloth"

    Mark 16:46,

    46Joseph bought a linen cloth, took Him down, wrapped Him in the linen cloth and laid Him in a tomb which had been hewn out in the rock; and he rolled a stone on the door of the tomb.


    ""Who will roll away the stone?" --Dux certainly not

    Right on, Sylvie -- other version use "Passover" which would be a 3-day error because of the 3d3n in the belly of the whale..

    So WHICH Shabbat are you speaking of ? the High or the Low? Because the 72 hrs in the tomb needs a full explanation.. right?

    Hello Dux
    I agree with the chart except for the Resurrection did not take place on the first day of the week. The diagram is slightly misleading. The resurrection had to take place on the Sabbath before the Sabbath ended. It was afternoon, or late afternoon (evening) when Jesus was buried and so 72 hours has to make the resurrection at the same time of day as his burial. The diagram does not indicate that.

    All the best
    David

    First day of week? hah, 'cause that says Monday to me, whereas I believe He Rose on Sunday!

    I would agree about your 72.0001 exactness, but IAW my take about Solomon having 690-710 wives, (but only one son!), am willing to give our Holy Ghostwriter a little slack.-- maybe mybad for inserting the 72 into the 3d3n..

    Jesus was laid in the grave exactly at the beginning of the seventh day.

    During the seventh day he is absent.

    The seventh day in fact is the historical time we live in.

    In the account of the seventh day, Genesis 2:1-3, there is no mentioning of "and it was evening and it was morning", which means it is the present world of time and space.

    The eighth day is of another order. It is the new all-encompassing "day one" = the day of light (in which there is no darkness).

    So although he is absent, he is not really absent, but present in the here and now, the reality that goes quicker than the eye.

    Help anyone? The 10th Day of 7th month was a sabbath, and if I knew the 10th day of the 1st month was also a sabbath, it would confirm the 17th a sabbath also (like in my diagram), but no luck so far.
    Hal Lindsey says the 14th was a Thursday, but that just doesn't fit, IMO.
