Good Friday

Updated: Apr 7, 2022


Is Good Friday really Good FRIDAY?


Consider Matthew 28:1 In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.


Facts:

Jesus died around 3pm. Matthew 27:45-50

He spent 3 days in hell paying for our sins. Matthew 12:40

The women went to the tomb on Sunday morning around 6am. Matthew 28:1


Question: Did Jesus die on Friday and rise on Sunday?


If he died on Friday around 3pm then three days later would be Monday around 3pm.

The women were at the sepulchre on Sunday morning around 6am.

He would've still been dead. Friday doesn't work.


If he died on Thursday around 3pm then three days later would be Sunday around 3pm.

The women were at the sepulchre on Sunday morning around 6am.

He would've still been dead. Thursday doesn't work.


If he died on Wednesday around 3pm then three days later would be Saturday around 3pm.

The women were at the sepulchre on Sunday morning around 6am.

Wednesday works.


Jesus died on Wednesday around 3pm and then rose again on Saturday around 3pm during the weekly Sabbath while everybody did no work.


The women went to the sepulchre 15 hours later on Sunday around 6am. What did Jesus do for 15 hours? I imagine he rested because he is Lord of the Sabbath and being in hell for 3 days has to take a lot out of you.


Mark 2:27 And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath: 28 therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.


Good Friday is a hoax.


Happy Good Wednesday!


Update: If you aren't convinced and need another nail for the 'coffin' then consider Mark 16:2 And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun.


The first day of the week is Sunday. They came at sun rise. That is Sunday AM. Work backwards from Sunday AM and you get Wednesday around 3pm. The 'fun' is fitting everything you know about the Passover, Feast of Unleavened bread and the Weekly Sabbath plus Jesus going to Bethany, Palm 'Sunday', and a host of other verses into the timeline. I am crazy enough to do that since the time the women went to the sepulchre is pretty much 'fixed'.


Here are some fingers you can use to count on:
