Adam's Romans Chapter 12 comment about verse 21 on 4/04/2021, 8:22am...

Matthew 12:40 is only 1 piece of evidence as to the timeline

Matthew 28:1 - says it was Sunday Jesus rose

Mark 16:1 - same the same

John 20:1 - same

Luke 24:1 - very early in the morning the first day of the week (Sunday), even more specific.

I think it's solid that Jesus was gone from the tomb by early on Sunday morning.

Theory: maybe Matthew 12:40 doesn't mean Jesus's body in the tomb, but Jesus preaching to spirits in hades in the center of the earth? 1 Peter 3:18-20, Ephesians 4:8-10. Maybe his body was in the tomb from Friday to Sunday morning, but his spirit was in the 'lower parts of the earth' for 3 days and 3 nights. This is only a theory.


Brother Dan's Romans Chapter 12 comment about verse 21 on 4/04/2021, 5:20am...

Christians celebrate Easter because Jesus was resurrected on a Sunday, the 1st day of the week.

To meet the 3 days and nights in the earth....Jesus could NOT have died on Friday.

So since he remained in the earth for 3 days and nights...he died before Friday. We also know he rested on Saturday (Sabbath). He even honored the Sabbath in death - very important example for us.

So a possible timeframe is Jesus died on Thursday, late day, and remained in the earth:

Thursday night

Friday morning

Friday night

Saturday morning

Saturday night

Sunday Morning for a period of time

God Bless
