WITNESSING OF JESUS CHRIST THE LORD
The question is ‘Did Jesus die on a Friday and resurrect on a Sunday as many believe today?’. Simple arithmetic proves that it is not possible for Jesus to have died on a Friday and resurrected on Sunday because one night is missing out of the 3 nights that Jesus had be in the heart of the earth in order to fulfill the sign of the Prophet Jonah sojourn inside the belly of the fish. Great reasoning, but don’t we read in the KJV Bible that the resurrection took place on the first day of the week?Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain otherswith them. (2) And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre. (3)And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus. Luke 24:1-3 KJVLuke 24:1-3 requires a long lesson in the Old Testament about the Sabbaths of YHWH and the counting of 7 of those Sabbaths (Saturdays) after which last Sabbath, always a Sunday, the feast of Pentecost was to observed. But before going into that study, look at the word ‘day’ verse. The italicized font makes it hard to read. The word ‘day’ in italicized font indicates that it is an added word by the translators, a word which does not appear in the Greek manuscript. So, without the word day, the verse reads ‘Now upon first of the week’. If you are not versed in the Bible, you have the feeling that a word is missing to complete the sentence, because ‘first of the week’ in the singular does not make any sense. Then, it could have made sense that the translators did add the word ‘day’ as the missing word to complete the sentence in any language. In the other hand, if the word ‘week’ was in plural ‘weeks’, the sentence would read ‘first of the weeks’. ‘First of the weeks’ makes plenty sense in that you might understand that the verse is talking about the first of more than one week. Then, you would look for the meaning of the plural word ‘weeks’. Is the word ‘week’ in the Greek manuscript in singular as translated or in plural as common sense dictates in any language? The word ‘week’ is in plural in the Greek manuscript. Not only that the word is in plural, but it is a translation of the plural Greek word ‘Sabbaths’, as other translations rightly translate it.Andthefirstofthesabbaths,whilestillveryearly,theycameonthe tomb,carryingspiceswhichtheyprepared;andsomewerewiththem.(Luke 24:1 LITV)Why did the translators of the KJV ignore the Greek to make the verse read ‘first day of the week’, which falsely indicates that the resurrection took place on the first day of the week which is, of course, Sunday? No matter what the answer may be, consider the support, if not the foundation, for the Easter Sunday doctrine, which unsuspecting believers accept as the truth. Nevertheless, what does the correct translation imply vis a vis the correct resurrection day? Without going deep into the Old Testament, the correct translation implies that the resurrection took place on a Saturday which was the first of the seven Sabbaths that were to be counted to arrive to the fiftieth day after the last seventh Sabbath, which fiftieth day is always a Sunday, known as Pentecostal day in Greek.Therefore, there was and there is no Easter Sunday because Jesus resurrected on a Saturday not on a Sunday, according to the faithful translation of Luke 24:1 and other related passages in the other gospels.If Jesus resurrected on a Saturday, early morning, according to the faithful translation of the verse, it goes without saying that Jesus could not have died the preceding Friday. On what day did Jesus die? Do some arithmetic to find the answer. Look for 3 days and 3 nights from Saturday, early morning.TO BE CONTINUED …
