Three days and three nights in the grave.

Some interesting revelations about the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Its generally believed that Jesus died on Friday, its a misunderstanding because of the Sabbath following Jesus' death, it was not the ordinary sabbath the falls on every seventh day, but a special sabbath pertaining to the first day of the The Feast of Unleavened Bread. (Leviticus 23:6-8 On the fifteenth day of that month the LORD’s Festival of Unleavened Bread begins; for seven days you must eat bread made without yeast. On the first day hold a sacred assembly and do no regular work. For seven days present a food offering to the LORD. And on the seventh day hold a sacred assembly and do no regular work).

Also in John 18:28 Then the Jewish leaders took Jesus from Caiaphas to the palace of the Roman governor. By now it was early morning, and to avoid ceremonial uncleanness they did not enter the palace, because they wanted to be able to eat the Passover. This states that the Jewish leaders didnt eat the passover meal and its the dawn of the day they need to have passover. that is Thursday, the 14th day of the month remember Jewish day starts at sunset not on sunrise.

John 19:14 It was the day of Preparation of the Passover; it was about noon. "Here is your king," Pilate said to the Jews.

Its still noon that day when Pilate handed over Jesus

John 19:31 Now it was the day of Preparation, and the next day was to be a special Sabbath. Because the Jewish leaders did not want the bodies left on the crosses during the Sabbath, they asked Pilate to have the legs broken and the bodies taken down.

Still the day of preparation, and the next day is a special Sabbath (first day of the The Feast of Unleavened Bread), not the regular one.

So Jesus was in the heart of earth on the day he died (Thursday), the special Sabbath (Friday), the regular Sabbath (Saturday) and resurrected on Sunday as Jesus stated in Matthew 12:40 For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
