Three days and three nights
Three Days and Three Nights
Re: Ndila Hamalambo:
".... Jesus died and was buried late Friday resurrected in the early hours of Sunday hence fulfilling the three days prophecy. If you say he resurrected on the sabbath, how shall you explain the three days prophecy???? ....... In another thread, explain to me the three days prophecy with your assumption that He resurrected on the Sabbath!
All these Scriptures are in PERFECT AGREEMENT in every respect :
And yes, they have everything to do with the "three day prophecy" BECAUSE :
1A) HERE BEGINS the NIGHT and the FIRST of the "three days", "according to the Scriptures" - the passover-Scriptures :
wherein Jesus ENTERED IN in "the Kingdom of my Father" (Jesus' Jonah's descent to hell) :
Mk14:12/17; Mt26:17/20; Lk22:7/14; Jn13:1.
1B) HERE BEGINS the MORNING of the FIRST of the "three days", "according to the Scriptures" - the passover-Scriptures :
in which Jesus was delivered and crucified :
1C) HERE is the LATE NOON AND MIDAFTERNOON of the FIRST of the "three days", "according to the Scriptures" - the passover-Scriptures :
when Jesus DIED and was deserted by all :
Mk15:3741; Mk27:5056; Lk23:4449; Jn19:2830
2A) HERE BEGINS the SECOND of the "three days", "according to the Scriptures" - the passover-Scriptures :
the day whereon Joseph WOULD BURY the body of Jesus :
Mk15:42/Mt27:57, Lk23:5051, Jn19:31/38.
2B) HERE is the NIGHT of the SECOND of the "three days", "according to the Scriptures" - the passover-Scriptures :
wherein Joseph begged the body, and according to the law of the Jews - the
passover's law - undertook and prepared to bury Jesus
Mk15:4346a; Mt27:5859; Lk23:5253a; Jn19:31b40
2C) HERE is the LATE NOON AND MIDAFTERNOON of the SECOND of the "three days", "according to the Scriptures" - the passover-Scriptures :
when Joseph and Nicodemus laid the body and closed the tomb; and men
and women left for home :
Mk15:46b47; Mk27:6061; Lk23:53b56a; JN19:4142
3A) HERE BEGINS the THIRD of the "three days", "according to the Scriptures" - the passover-Scriptures :
THAT JESUS WOULD RISE FROM THE DEAD ON :
3B) HERE is the MORNING of the THIRD of the "three days", "according to the Scriptures" - the passover-Scriptures :
Pilate ordered a guard "for the third day" :
3C) HERE is "IN the Sabbath's Fullness MIDAFTERNOON" of the THIRD of the "three days", "according to the Scriptures" - the passover-Scriptures :
First Sheaf Wave Offering Before the LORD :
4A) HERE begins the day AFTER the "three days" (fourth day of the passover season) :
that Jesus WOULD APPEAR on :
Mk16:1, "When the Sabbath was past ..... they BOUGHT ...."
4B) HERE is the EVENING of this day,
Jn20:110 Mary sees the DOORSTONE was away from the tomb (discovers tomb is OPENED);
4C) HERE is the NIGHT of this day,
Lk24:110 "DEEP(EST) DARKNESS" --- "women with their spices" and ontments go to salve the body; "they found Him NOT" (discover tomb is EMPTY);
Mk16:28 "very early (before) SUN'S RISING" --- women's return-visit to ascertain; "they fled terrified and told NO ONE".
4D) Here is sunrise ('Sunday' morning),
Jn20:11f, Mk16:9 "Mary had had stood behind" .... saw the gardener (sunrise); "Risen, early (sunrise) on the First Day, Jesus first APPEARED to Mary ...."
Mt28:5-10 "The angel explained to the (other) women (Mt28:1-4) .... As they went to tell .... Jesus met them" (after sunrise).
Mt28:1115 Guard to high priests.
USE BIBLES OF BEFORE THE TWENTIETH CENTURY - they are not as wangled as the later ones. And compare those ancient translations with the modern ones to see the truth of the older ones!
"The same verse you earlier used to asert that He resurrected on the Sabbath, can also be used to assert that He resurrected on Sunday!"
Answer: If the verse you have in mind is Mt28:1, it CANNOT "also be used to assert that He resurrected on Sunday!"
1) BECAUSE of all the reasons I have already given from ALL the Scriptures;
2) BECAUSE of its ONLY CORRECT literal meaning:
"opse de" and in fullness / late on / in
"sabbatohn" of the Sabbath
("sabbatohn") the Sabbath's / Sabbath's-time's
"tehi" in the
"epi" very / midst
"phohs" light / daylight / (noon)
"ousehi" in the being
"eis" towards / before / tending / against
"mian (hehmeran) sabbatohn" Acc=excluded First (Day) of the week.
3) Precisely as used in Lk23:54 for Friday "mid-afternoon before the Sabbath".
4) BECAUSE of the Exodus and Leviticus passover instructions concerning Abib 14, 14, and 16.
5) BECAUSE of Mt12:40 and "three days AND three nights".
1) Fifth Day : Wednesday night and Thursday day --- Abib 14, Remove leaven and slaughter lamb;
2) Sixth Day / "the Preparation WHICH IS the Foresabbath" : Thursday night and Friday day --- Abib 15, "that which remaineth" carried out and burned (interred);
3) Seventh Day Sabbath "according to the (Fourth) Commandment" : Friday night and Sabbath, day --- Abib 16, "First Sheaf Wave Offering Before the LORD".
three to four decades of study .....
God's blessing on your study of it in a few lines. Thank God you are so young still. I thank Him for being so old already.
