Cariad,

I don't think that you should.  Why do you ask?

Cariad,
re:  "We also have the record of His death and burial in the gospels:- (Matthew 27:57-66; Matthew 28:1-15; Mark 15:42-47; Luke 23:50-56; John 19:38-42). What more evidence would we want than this?"


Evidence of what?

John,
"You are the one saying that the biblical account is false..."

If your comment is directed to me, where have I said that?


re:  "...It is up to you to demonstrate that the Greek, Hebrew etc used does mean three periods of 24 hours and no less."

That would be an issue for a different topic.

Since it's been awhile, perhaps someone new visiting this topic may know of examples.
