It also relates to Jonah in the three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish.

But why 3 days and 3 nights?

Hi
Christ died in the day time on Friday day time one sun went down on Friday night time one sun rose on Saturday day time two sun went down on Saturday night time two sun rose on Sunday daytime three sun went down on Sunday night time three.
So christ was dead three day times and three night times if its not so why did Christ say three days and three nights why not jest say three days its the same for Jonah

   For just as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
Matthew 12:40 ESV

So its not three days its three day times and three night times

Love and Peace

But why that specific period of time? Was there something special about it?

BTW, you wrote that the sun went down of Friday night.   If the crucifixion took place on a Friday, then Friday night would have been over some 3 hours by that time.

Hi rstrats
Thank you for your reply I believe what happens  in the fiscal world is a mirror image of the spiritual as St Paul says we see in a mirror dimly  in the spiritual a day is a thousand years wich means Christ will return approximately 2500 years after the end of the fourth day,

Love and Peace

I have no idea what that has to do with this topic.  Perhaps you could explain.

Hi rstrats
You asked what my post meant what I was trying to point out was there is a physical  time frame and a spiritual time frame in the physical a day is 24 hours in the spiritual day its a 1000 years as St Peter tells us.

     But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
2 Peter 3:8 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/2pe.3.8.ESV     


So as Christ rose in the physical he will also rise in the spiritual as an example on the fourth day of creation God created the sun the moon and the stars this happend  4000 years after the flood the sun represents Christ the light of the world the moon represents the church the reflected light of the sun and the stars the children of God.

Love and Peace
