The concept of a Good Friday crucifixion and a Sunday morning resurrection is a complete falsehood that has led to the deception of those who would be followers of the Christ for centuries.
The truth is that the resurrection was near the end of the weekly 7th day Sabbath (our Saturday) exactly 72 hours after He was placed in the tomb. Anyone who tells you anything else is calling Christ a liar. If it was NOT 72 hours, then He is NOT your Savior. The only sign that He gave that proves His identity is Matthew 12:40. Three days and three nights cannot possibly fit into Friday evening to before sunrise Sunday. You cannot even count, if you believe in a Friday crucifixion, Sunday as a day because the scriptures say He was already risen BEFORE the women got to the tomb.
Several links where you can study the truth for yourself:
To truly understand what went on during the week of the crucifixion, you need to study the Biblical Holy Days:
To give you a basic overview, because you really need to study this vital truth for yourself, in the Bible, the days start and end at sunset:
Our Tuesday evening (Sunset started the 14th day of Exodus 10-12) Yeshua ate the Passover with His disciples and instituted the bread and wine ceremony as a memorial to His death. That night He was betrayed, arrested, taken to the High Priest's house. The next morning (our Wednesday) very early before the morning sacrifices began at the Temple, He was taken to the Sanheidren. Peter denied Him about the time the Temple Crier (Not a rooster) was calling for the morning sacrifices to begin.
After being shuttled back and forth between Herod and Pilate, He is finally condemned, tortured, and crucified and died on the cross late Wednesday afternoon and was placed in the tomb before the sunset that ended that day. This was the preparation day for the 1st High Sabbath of the year, the first day of Unleavened Bread (Again read the Exodus account and Leviticus 23).
This period of time from sunrise Wednesday to sunset Wednesday is also the preparation day for the Highday Sabbath mentioned in John's account.
Sunset Wednesday to Sunrise Thrusday. The Highday Sabbath, the first day of Unleavened Bread, or the Passover of the Jews, mentioned in John's account began at this sunset
Sunrise Thrusday to sunset Thrusday. It is still the Highday Sabbath.
Sunset Thursday to sunrise Friday began the preparation day for the weekly Sabbath.
Sunrise Friday to sunset Friday. This is the daytime portioin of the preparation day for the weekly Sabbath, during which the disiple prepared the spices for the final burial of Yeshua.
Sunset Friday to sunrise Saturday, the weekly Sabbath began at sunset Friday and the disciples rested according to the commandment.
Sunrise Saturday (Sabbath)to just before sunset, 72 hours after being placed in the grave ends the 3rd day.
This is so easily proven from the Bible that it is rediculous that people still believe in a Good Friday/Easter Sunday scenario. Like so many other practices and beliefs of traditional Christianity, it is rooted in pagan worship of heathen gods and has no Biblical basis whatsoever.
