"By law and custom, the Jewish people of Jesus' day took the Sabbath as a day of complete rest. Because no work could be done on the Sabbath, which we call Saturday, Friday came to be known as Preparation Day." (Josephus, Antiquities, Book XVI, Chapter 6.)
It was a day when food and other things needed for Saturday were prepared in advance. This is our first clue to the day of the crucifixion, because all four Gospels state that Jesus was crucified on Preparation Day, a Friday . This is also the common consensus of the Church Fathers and scholars throughout church history.
Judeans reckoned the 24-hour day from sunset-to-sunset. The Book of Leviticus, Chapter 33: "5 The LORD's Passover begins at twilight on the fourteenth day of the first month.."
The 3 nights and 3 days in the tomb, ARE NOT THERE!
Selah! (Think about it!)
I don't have to prove anything. The FACTS speak for themselves! But, I can hardly wait for your explanation as to the 'missing time'. Gee, maybe he was abducted by aliens! Horrors!
Another 'failed' prophecy. Which reminds me. You haven't addressed all the messianic requirements that Jesus failed to fulfill. See post #240, I have to keep this short, course that is no guarantee that you will READ it!
I have heard the suggestion that Yeshua was not crucified on Friday. I accept that He was buried on Friday.
I am not aware He needed to be in the ground three days and three nights. You are welcome to provide the reference for me. Is that a Messianic prophecy? Do the Jews accept that Messiah is to suffer?
We are told that Yeshua rose on the third day. He was buried before sundown on Friday so he was buried on Friday, the first day. He was in the tomb on Saturday, which would be the second day. He rose on Sunday, sometime after sundown on what we would call Saturdy, which would be the third day.
As for the Messianic prophecies, I am not the great scholar. Here are the ones I know of.
