Jesus predicted His Passion

Jesus was to be buried for three days and three nights, as a bet.

The Death of Jesus: when and how long did He remain buried before he was risen?

The consideration of the timing of the death of Jesus is important because it was given as a sign to the skeptics of His time and because it is used as the foundation for the establishment of Good Friday, Easter, and the so-called Christian worship day on Sunday, the resurrection day, which is in contrast to Saturday which the Torah calls on the alien converts and believers of today to keep and have a holy convocation on the Sabbath. We will go over the concept of a day in the Torah in its divisions of ‘evening and morning’. The Jews use two calendars. We will pay close attention to the timing of the events leading to Jesus’s arrest in the night, His overnight mock trial, the time He was taken to various authorities, His condemnation, His Crucifixion, His death, His burial, the predicted length of His stay in the heart of the earth, the resurrection and its timing. We will also look at the current timing of those events and their application. Then, we will make the determination whether or not we are required by Jesus or the Apostles to celebrate those events.

What is a biblical day?

The sign that Jesus gave His generation to seal His rights as YHWH Elohim involves days and nights (Matthew 12:40). We may not assume that the audience is familiar with the biblical day established in the Torah. Even the chosen people chose to follow in parallel another calendar even though at the Exodus YHWH Elohim (Jesus) decreed to them a new calendar. This month shall be the chief of months for you. It shall be the first of the months of the year for you. Exodus 12:2 KJ3. Observe the month Abib, and perform the Passover to Jehovah your God. For in the month of Abib Jehovah your God brought you out of Egypt by night. (Deuteronomy 16:1 KJ3) What is a day in accordance with the Torah (the Law) and the timing of the week of unleavened bread? The days of the prediction fell during the week of the unleavened bread. And God called the light, Day. And He called the darkness, Night. And it was evening, and it was morning, day one. (Genesis 1:5 KJ3) Genesis 1:5 sheds light on Matthew 12:40 which contains the sign of the Prophet Jonah that prophesies the death and resurrection of Jesus. Matthew 12:40 does not call for 24 hour calendar days, as it specifies ‘3 days and 3 nights’ because a day is defined as the interval between ‘an evening and a morning, day one’. In Matthew 12:40, based on the language of Genesis 1:5, the ‘3 days’ refer to the ‘light’ portion of the day and the ‘3 nights’ refer to the ‘darkness’ portion of the day. In essence, for the sign of Jesus to be exact in accordance to His prediction, we must look for 3 daylights and 3 darkness between the day of His burial and the day of His resurrection. Anathema to those who inject their virus in the arithmetical chronology of the events of the Passion of Jesus by claiming that it was customary for the Jews to count part of a day as a day. That argument does not concern the sign of the Prophet Jonah which is about ‘ 3 days and 3 nights’, which is ‘3 daylights and 3 darkness’ from the perspective of Genesis 1:5. Based on the foregoing, in researching the timing of the events of the Passion of Jesus, we are not looking for our modern Gregorian calendar 3 days in the narrative of the New Testament. Rather, we are looking for any ‘3 days and 3 nights’ of the experience of the Prophet Jonah in the narrative of the death and resurrection of Jesus. As a starting point for the research, we look at the current application of the chronology of the vents of the Passion.

and the third day

be raised up

(Matthew 17:23 ASV) and they shall kill him, and the third day he shall be raised up. And they were exceeding sorry. (Matthew 20:19 ASV) and shall deliver him unto the Gentiles to mock, and to scourge, and to crucify: and the third day he shall be raised up. (Matthew 27:64 ASV) Command therefore that the sepulchre be made sure until the third day, lest haply his disciples come and steal him away, and say unto the people, He is risen from the dead: and the last error will be worse than the first. (Luke 9:22 ASV) saying, The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and the third day be raised up. (Luke 13:32 ASV) And he said unto them, Go and say to that fox, Behold, I cast out demons and perform cures to-day and to-morrow, and the third day I am perfected. (Luke 18:33 ASV) and they shall scourge and kill him: and the third day he shall rise again. (Luke 24:7 ASV) saying that the Son of man must be delivered up into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again. (Luke 24:21 ASV) But we hoped that it was he who should redeem Israel. Yea and besides all this, it is now the third day since these things came to pass. (Luke 24:46 ASV) and he said unto them, Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer, and rise again from the dead the third day; (John 2:1 ASV) And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there:

Three

days and

three

nights

Matthew 12:38-40 ASV Then certain of the scribes and Pharisees answered him, saying, Teacher, we would see a sign from thee. (39) But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it but the sign of Jonah the prophet: (40) for as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the whale; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. (Matthew 16:21 ASV) From that time began Jesus to show unto his disciples, that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and the third day be raised up.

After three days I

rise again.

(Matthew 26:61 ASV) and said, This man said, I am able to destroy the temple of God, and to build it in three days. (Matthew 27:40 ASV) and saying, Thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, save thyself: if thou art the Son of God, come down from the cross. (Matthew 27:63 ASV) saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said while he was yet alive, After three days I rise again. (Mark 8:2 ASV) I have compassion on the multitude, because they continue with me now three days, and have nothing to eat: (Mark 8:31 ASV) And he began to teach them, that the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders, and the chief priests, and the scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again. (Mark 9:31 ASV) For he taught his disciples, and said unto them, The Son of man is delivered up into the hands of men, and they shall kill him; and when he is killed, after three days he shall rise again. (Mark 10:34 ASV) and they shall mock him, and shall spit upon him, and shall scourge him, and shall kill him; and after three days he shall rise again. (Mark 14:58 ASV) We heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and in three days I will build another made without hands. (Mark 15:29 ASV) And they that passed by railed on him, wagging their heads, and saying, Ha! thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, (Luke 2:46 ASV) And it came to pass, after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the teachers, both hearing them, and asking them questions: (John 2:19-20 ASV) Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. (20) The Jews therefore said, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou raise it up in three days?
