Luke 24 [The tomb is empty]

24 But very early on Sunday morning the women went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared. 2 They found that the stone had been rolled away from the entrance. 3 So they went in, but they didn’t find the body of the Lord Jesus. 4 As they stood there puzzled, two men suddenly appeared to them, clothed in dazzling robes.

5 The women were terrified and bowed with their faces to the ground. Then the men asked, “Why are you looking among the dead for someone who is alive? 6 He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead! Remember what he told you back in Galilee, 7 that the Son of Man must be betrayed into the hands of sinful men and be crucified, and that he would rise again on the third day.”

Most amazingly, it was just this past week that I heard on the radio the answer to the “3 days” riddle that Christians have been struggling with as regards Jesus’ time in the tomb  in relation to the Sabbath in the scripture. It was from a preacher who lived over 60 years ago and his show Dr. Barnhouse & the Bible. He said that during that week (Passover), the Wednesday was also a Sabbath day. Crucified on Wednesday, risen on Saturday, the regular Sabbath. He specifically mentioned he is not troubled at all by the Church having the tradition wrong as regards good Friday and Easter Sunday. It all made sense to me as I have heard some of the other contortions to try and get the days to come out right.

Hi Eda, trebuie să spune-mi ceva despre tine, ai fost frumos destul ca să-l lovească pe mai multe din posturile mele, şi EU sunt curios cum cineva din Romania chiar aflat despre blogul meu minut putin. Vă place parea neobisnuita pentru un poet (sau astfel încât I-ar fi crezut). Jim
