I also note the Star of Bethlehem site endeavors to place the crucifixion on a Friday for which there is no biblical warrant, and which leads to no reconciliation of Jesus being 3 days & nights in the tomb.I mentioned that I held to a Friday crucifixion and Starwind asked for my reasoning, specifically how I
count 3 days and 3 nights leading up to Sunday morning.I will address this over the next few posts.
There are several passages that give us information about the day of crucifixion and resurrection. They can be arranged in several groups.
- Jesus' predictions of his own death
- Jesus' temple analogy
- Analogy to Jonah
- Resurrection accounts
- Mention of Preparation day
- Mention of the Sabbath day
- Mention of the first day of the week
- Mention of the duration
- Other allusions
