Christian tradition is that Jesus was crucified on Good Friday and was raised from the dead on Easter Sunday. 

But lets take a closer look at this. Go to:

I suggest you download it and save as PDF.

Go the the list of appendixes in blue hyperlinked text, and click on:

Appendix 156: "The Six Days Before The Passover."

Read carefully the whole Appendix and you will see that the scriptures and Jewish Calendar are irrefutable. The summary of the events is:

Jesus Christ was crucified on our Wednesday the 14th Day of Nisan, which was the day of preparation for the passover. This was the day the unblemished lamb is killed, and by law and according to the scriptures Jesus had to be in the ground three days and three nights. In Hebrew law and culture, a person  was not legally dead until such time.

Jesus died about the 9th hour, our 3:00 PM. They had to bury him before sunset so that they would not be unclean for the Passover. The Jewish day starts at sunset and includes night and then day.

Our Wednesday the Hebrew's 14th of Nisan was the crucifixion 

Our Wednesday night, 15th Day of Nisan; Thursday starts, the Day of the Passover begins, the first night and the first day.

Our Friday the 16th Day of Nisan, starts sunset our Thursday, the second night and second day.

Our Saturday, the 17th Day of Nisan, starts sunset our Friday, is the third night and third day.

Jesus rose from the dead at sunset our Saturday night, being the three nights and three days fulfilled.

No wonder unbelievers make fun of Christianity, because they can't even get the Day Jesus died and rose again from the dead correct. This is another sad commentary on the lack of Biblical research and understanding and the problem with inaccurate tradition.

Correction: Go to the list...

Praise The Lord That Jesus Got up out of the Grave for our salvation! 

No one has responded to this post that proves that almost every denomination and non-denomination has it wrong what day Jesus was crucified and what day he was raised from the dead!

If you read the PDF from the Companion Bible, then if you disagree fine, or agree fine, but at least consider that Good Friday to Sunday does not equal three days. By Hebrew culture and law and scriptures, For Jesus to fulfill the law he had to dead for three days and three nights.
You have not understood how a day is reckoned by the Jews; it does not have to be 24 hrs.

Also you have not understood what ' the heart of the earth' means
Glad someone has responded.

Have you down loaded and read the PDF and considered its implications?

Refer to that document and show by logic how it is wrong.

I am aware of the Garden of Gethsemeny premise.
I am aware of and information about the three days is all in the PDF.
I summarized the issue but the details are not easily dismissed that are in the PDF.

The scriptural references, details and timeline is conclusive.

By the way, Bullinger has a wealth of good research, the Companion Bible and its appendixes are worth reading by any Christian, as well as his other books. That is despite my criticism of a few matters that he was misguided in, but the vast majority of his research is astoundingly good.
See Appendix 156 section II, as well as Appendix 144 About Three days and Three nights. The Hebrew Idiom you refer to for partial time taken in reference to three years or three days does not apply in this case as shown by the two above Companion Bible appendixes.

You must read the whole of both to come to the honest conclusion.
Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene came early to the tomb, while it was still dark, and saw the stone already taken away from the tomb. John 20:1

Matthew 28Living Bible (TLB)

28 Early on Sunday morning, as the new day was dawning, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went out to the tomb.

2 Suddenly there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and rolled aside the stone and sat on it. 3 His face shone like lightning and his clothing was a brilliant white. 4 The guards shook with fear when they saw him, and fell into a dead faint.

5 Then the angel spoke to the women. “Don’t be frightened!” he said. “I know you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified, 6 but he isn’t here! For he has come back to life again, just as he said he would. Come in and see where his body was lying. . . . 7 And now, go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and that he is going to Galilee to meet them there. That is my message to them.”
Mark 15: 42 It was Preparation Day (that is, the day before the Sabbath). So as evening approached, 43 Joseph of Arimathea, a prominent member of the Council, who was himself waiting for the kingdom of God, went boldly to Pilate and asked for Jesus’ body. 44 Pilate was surprised to hear that he was already dead. Summoning the centurion, he asked him if Jesus had already died. 45 When he learned from the centurion that it was so, he gave the body to Joseph. 46 So Joseph bought some linen cloth, took down the body, wrapped it in the linen, and placed it in a tomb cut out of rock.

Did you read the PDFs I referred you to? 

Nothing you have posted refutes what is stated in Bullinger's Appendixes referred to.

This is a confused thread. No need for it to continue. You can't refute anything but refer us back to a document which is supposed to answer all our questions? This prove to me that you have been deceived by document

Yes how true it is indeed 

Image result for foolishness of the cross

Elijah: I believe in what Jesus did on the cross, off the cross and after he was raised from the dead. You are preaching to the choir.

Did you download and read the PDF's I refer to above? You might learn something if you did?
