Hi rstrats
How about this

Christ was crucified in the daytime day 1
Sun went down night 1
Sun came up day 2
Sun went down night 2
Sun came up day 3
Sun went down night 3
Christ rose towards the end of night 3

Love and Peace
Dave

Two things:
1.  Your post has the resurrection on the 2nd day of the week.

2. It doesn't include actual examples to show that it was common to say that a daytime or a night time would be involved with an event when no part of a daytime or no part of a night time could be.

Yes, calendar day 1 and daytime 1.  However, night time 1 would be the first half of Saturday. Friday's night time had been over some 3 hours by the time of the crucifixion.

Hi rstrats
I am not counting days as 24 hour days Friday Saturday I'm counting daylight times and nighttime which would mean Christ rose on Monday morning.
Christ was in the grave three day times and three night times.

Love and Peace

Christ rose on Monday morning.


What day of the week are you calling Monday?

Hi rstrats
The first day of the week when the woman came to the tomb.

Then we have

  Luk 24:7 Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again         

So if our Lord rose on the third day he could not have been in the tomb 3
24 hour days but he could be in the tomb 3 day times and 3 nighttime

Love and Peace
Dave

And on what day of the week was the Messiah placed in the tomb?
