ON THIS PAGE: 

1. What Muslims say is true, “Your Bible says Jesus was in the grave for only 1 day and 2 nights!”  It seems that Christians omitted and twisted Jesus’ declaration on His crucifixion and resurrection to insert their Roman Catholic, fertility “Easter Weekend Feast” feast into the Scriptures! Jesus was NOT in the grave only on Friday night, Saturday, and Saturday night, (36 hours.) Jesus said, “As Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the whale, so will the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth, (Mt. 12:40!) 

2. To justify their “Easter Weekend” narrative, Christians also ‘CHANGED’ God’s gift of literal time on earthThey state, “Unlike Western time, a Hebrew day begins at sunset and ends at sunset.”  So what?  One “day” still consists of a 24-hour period, not a 12-hour period. Hebrews knew, at creation, “God called the light ‘Day,’ and the darkness He called ‘Night.’  So the evening and the morning were the FIRST DAY…” (Genesis 1:5,8,13-14,19,23,31; 2:2—3.)

3. It is blasphemy to make Jesus into a liar by that He said, “After three days and three nights I will rise.”  This definitely does NOT ACCOUNT FOR “4-DAYS IN THE GRAVE!” 

4. Yet, Christians even abuse the book of Ester to ‘change’ 1 day and 2 nights, (the 36 hours of their “Easter Weekend,”) into 3 days and 3 nights (72 hours)!

5. The “Easter Weekend” feast is a Roman Catholic, pagan fallacy, which Protestants inherited from the church of Rome

6. Find the pure, Scriptural truth of this debate in contextual Scripture as illustrated in the graph lower down on this page!

OUR MOST PRECIOUS LORD JESUS CHRIST DIED FOR US ON THE CROSS AS SURE AS WE NOW LIVE, BUT NOT ON “GOOD FRIDAY.” IN DEFIANCE OF FALSE DOGMA, SOMEONE ASKED ME THE FOLLOWING VITAL QUESTION, “IN MATTHEW 27:57-66, 28:1-8, JESUS WAS ONLY IN THE GRAVE FOR 1 DAY AND 2 NIGHTS. He died on “Good Friday” afternoon, right? If Mary Magdalene visits the sepulchre at daybreak on Sunday morning, [the first day of the Hebrew week,] to find it empty, that only counts as two nights (24 hours) and one (12 hour) day, which is 36 hours. BUT JESUS SAID HE WILL RISE “AFTER THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS,” which is 72 hours. Someone is lying, right?”  

Yes, someone is indeed lying. So that there could be no misunderstanding, the Lord Jesus stated, “As Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the whale, so will the Son of man, [the human Jesus,] be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth:” Mt. 12:40! “I shall destroy this [literal] temple and in three days I shall raise it up [as the believing body of Christ.] He was speaking of the temple of His [own] body, [three days and three nights in the grave:]” Jn. 2:19. The Lord Jesus Christ cannot lie. He does not merely speak truth, He IS the Truth: Jn. 1:1-3; Heb. 1:1-14. Either the CHRISTIANIZED, PAGAN, ASTROLOGY/MOON-BASED EASTER WEEKEND FEAST, was squeezed into these verses, or translators shuffled the verses to accommodate their feast of Easter.  

► The 36-hour, Friday-to-Sunday morning Easter feast of church clergies was based on their “one day” distortion of time and space, which teaches that “Jews count ‘a day’ from sunset, which is 12 hours.'” No, a Hebrew day is from sunset, (evening) to sunset (evening,) when another day begins, which is 24 hours. God clearly illustrated this fact at creation when He “called the light ‘Day’ [12 hours] and the darkness ‘Night’ [12 hours.] So the evening, Night, and the morning, Day, were the first [24-hour ] day…” Gen. 1:5,8...) APART FROM SHUFFLING BIBLE VERSES TO CUT ‘A DAY’ IN HALF, CHURCH CLERGIES ADJUST THEIR MIND PROGRAMMING TO MAKE CHRISTIANS BELIEVE, “FROM GOOD FRIDAY EVENING TO SUNDAY MORNING AT DAYBREAK EQUALS 3 FULL DAYS AND 3 FULL NIGHTS.” When this venom of confusion does not comatose people straight away, they also abuse the book of Ester to repeat this silliness, which does not even justify an answer. 

►  Furthermore, Christian Easter was NOT celebrated until after the latter part of 1 A.D., when the Jerusalem Council, (so-called believing Hebrews,) began to mix God’s Truth with Judaist sacramentalism, which Jesus Christ fully fulfilled during His life on earth and erased at the cross: Acts 15:1-5. That is how they established the first Roman Catholic church in Jerusalem during the latter part of 1 A.D.: Acts 9:1-2; 19:9,23; 24:4 Gal. 5:1-6,11. Yet, Jesus did not even vaguely suggest keeping any religious feast or other commemoration, except the Lord’s Supper.  

►  Because the creation-truth that ‘a day’ is 24-hours backs church clergies into a corner, (Heb. 7:11-19,) they turn to more confusion and bad arithmetic to make Jesus into a liar. They say that in Matthew 27:62-62 where it is written, “AFTER three days I will rise,” amount to “FOUR DAYS” in the grave. However, even if they include their "Easter Monday," which is totally unscriptural as the women came to the grave on Sunday morning, the first Hebrew day of the week, that is clearly impossible: Luke 24:1-12. Mark 9:31 actually means, at sunset on the third day after the Saturday Sabbath was over and the new day, Sunday, began at nightfall, Jesus rose from the dead and the stone that covered His grave was rolled away. None of their justifications can turn the false Easter Weekend into “three days and three nights,” 72 hours.  

►  The argument of clergies that Jesus’ “three days and three nights” in the grave were actually only 36 hours, finally leads to their assumption that the Lord did not speak of a specific time in the grave, as “One day is like a thousand years and a thousand years are like one day.” This is pathetic. God was speaking metaphorically about the thousand-year day. It refers to the spirit world and to heaven, where time does not exist. God only created time on earth to govern our physical lives. There are no clocks in heaven. From creation until now, all Hebrews see one literal day as a 24-hour period, just like Jesus said.  

► Where Jesus’ death and resurrection are concerned, the Old Testament covenant with its 8-DAY PASSOVER FEAST, (including Preparation Day, which was also fulfilled and annulled at the cross by the Lamb of God,) and all four Gospels together, hold the key to debunk this illogical Good Friday/Easter Sunday Easter darkness.  

►  It is important to understand that the ceremonial law of Old Israel also pertained [past tense] to MANY ANNUAL SACRAMENTAL SABBATHS or rest days in combination with each other: Lev. 23:3-8,15,24,32,35-36,38-39! Thus, THERE WERE MORE THAN ONE SABBATH DAY THAT WEEK WHEN CHRIST WAS CRUCIFIED. 

►  Here are the details of the bygone 8-day Passover Feast. In Exodus 12, God said to the Hebrews in Egypt, “[During the first month of the Hebrew year,] on the 14th of Nisan, [that started at dusk, and was Preparation Day,] the assembly… must kill a lamb at twilight… and eat the flesh on that night, which is the Passover meal on the 15th day of the same month, [which starts at dusk when Preparation Day ends.] That night and day of the 15th of Nissan [after Preparation Day] is the [first day of the] Feast of Unleavened Bread to the Lord…” Lev. 23:5-7. Exodus 12:14-18, “For seven days [after Preparation Day] you must eat unleavened bread… On the first… and seventh day there will be a holy convocation. [A Sabbath.] No manner of work will be done on them…”  

► John 19:14, “IT WAS THE PREPARATION DAY OF THE PASSOVER, and about the sixth hour. And Pilate said to the Hebrews, “Behold your King!” But they cried out, “Away with Him! We have no king but Cesar…” This is exactly what all forms of Judaism, Messianic Judaism too, still say.  

► In the context of the above, (Exodus 12; John 1:29; 19:14,) there cannot be any confusion about Jesus’ death “at twilight” (nightfall)] on Preparation Day the 14th of Nisan and His resurrection three nights and three days later at dusk, (when the Hebrew day ends and the new day begins.)   [See the graph lower down on the page.] 

►  It is logic that Jesus could not eat the actual Passover with His disciples on Preparation Day, as He died on the cross that day and Passover followed the next day. He could not have been crucified on Passover Sabbath Day on 15th Nisan either, as the Hebrews were not allowed any activity on that day. So, on 14th Nisan, (the evening or beginning of Preparation Day, which began at twilight that day when 13th Nisan ended at twilight, [Exodus 12,]) JESUS HAD THE LAST SUPPER WITH HIS DISCIPLES in anticipation of the Passover Sabbath that followed [past tense] Preparation Day.  THERE THE  LORD INSTITUTED THE NEW-COVENANT LORD’S SUPPER: Lu. 22:1,7-8,15-20, Mt. 26:17-54.  

► That same night on Preparation Day, the Lamb of God was arrested in Gethsemane and put on trial. That daylight morning of Preparation day, 14th Nissan, He was brought before Pilate and crucified on the cross. He died at 3 o’clock p.m. our time, “at twilight” as Preparation Day began to end.   [See the graph lower down on this page.]

►  John 19:31, “BECAUSE IT WAS THE PREPARATION DAY, that the bodies should not remain on the cross on the Sabbath day [that began at nightfall,] FOR THAT SABBATH WAS A HIGH DAY, the Hebrews asked Pilate that… they might be taken away [to be buried.]”  

► The next day that started after Jesus died before nightfall was THE PASSOVER Day, 15th Nisan, the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread. IT WAS NOT A SATURDAY SABBATH BUT A HIGH SABBATH: Lev. 23:3-8! No one worked on [any of the different Sabbaths,] so a Day of Preparation before Passover was set aside to prepare for this High Sabbath: John 19:14.  

►  JESUS DIED ON PREPARATION DAY, NOT BECAUSE THIS DAY WAS THE ROMAN CATHOLIC ‘GOOD FRIDAY,’ but because it was the day before Passover, the High Sabbath or the first day of the 7-day Feast of Unleavened Bread, which began at sunset after Jesus died. According to the Levitical law, (Exodus 12,) Jesus was slain Once and for All on the 14th Nissan as the Passover Lamb of God, three hours before the Passover Sabbath Day began at dusk: John 1:29; 3:16-18.  

►  It is also sound, Scriptural fact that the weekly Hebrew Sabbath on Saturday was NOT the only Sabbath Day during the Passover feast. The Lord was NOT placed in the tomb on 'Friday afternoon.' He was buried at sunset on WEDNESDAY EVENING, 14th Nissan, Preparation Day - just before the HIGH SABBATH of Unleavened Bread began during sunset on Thursday, 15th Nissan. Catholics call the Preparation Day when He died “ASH WEDNESDAY.” Their evil clergies know the Scriptures very well but they fail to tell Christians the truth about THEIR GREAT HOAX, THE BLASPHEMOUS, MOON-BASED GOOD FRIDAY TO EASTER SUNDAY WEEKEND ABOMINATION.  

►►  Thursday, High Sabbath 15th Nissan, from dusk till dusk, Jesus was in the grave: Day One.  

Friday, 16th Nissan, from dusk till dusk, Jesus was in the grave: Day Two.  

Saturday Sabbath, 17th Nissan, from dusk till dusk, Jesus was in the grave: Day Three.  

During nightfall of 17th Nissan while Sunday, 18th Nissan began, The One and Only Christ rose from the grave. After that, the tomb, which was "made secure until the third day" to make sure that the Lord Jesus was in the grave all the time, was opened when an angel "rolled back the stone from the door." 

The Lord Jesus Christ left the grave that night: Mt. 27:62-66.

At sunrise the next morning, 18th Nissan, the first day of the Hebrew week, the women went to the grave and found it empty:  Mt. 28:1-9.    

Our One and Only Redeemer-Savior-God Christ lives forever more! Hallelujah!

“YOU HAVE CORRUPTED THE BIBLE; YOU HAVE NO GROUND TO STAND ON” 

The Qur’an’s Surah 5:65-75 proclaim sobering facts about their animosity towards the Jesus of the Bible, “If only the People of the [Bible] Book had believed [in the Muslim message] and been righteous [through following the Islamic path,] we, [not the God of the Bible,] should have blotted out their iniquities.” Verse 66: “If only they had stood fast by the Law, [the Jewish Torah, or Pentateuch, the 5 books of Moses,] the Gospel, [the historical Books which describe the life of Jesus; not the epistles…] and all the revelation that was sent to them from Verse 67: “O [Muslim] Messenger!  Proclaim the Message, which has been sent to you from your Lord…  And Allah will defend you from men who mean mischief.  For Allah guides not those who reject [Muslim] Faith

Verse 68: “Say: ‘O People of the Book! [Christians!]  You have no ground to stand on unless you stand fast by the Law, the Gospel, and all the revelation that has come to you from your Lord.’  [Next, the scene changes abruptly:]  It is the revelation that comes to you [Muslims] from your Lord, [Allah,] that increases in most of them [the Christians] their obstinate rebellion and blasphemy… [against Islam.]  But you do not grieve over these people without Faith [in Allah.] 

Verse 69: “Those who believe in the Qur’an, those who follow the Jewish scriptures, and the Sabians and the Christians – any who believe in Allah and in the [Islamic] Last Day, and work [Islamic] righteousness, on them will be no fear… 

Verse 70:  “We took the Covenant of the Children of Israel and sent them [Muslim] Messengers.  Every time there came to them a Messenger with what they themselves did not desire [Qur’anic  teaching] – some of these they called impostors, and some they go so far as to slay…

Verse 72: “They do blaspheme who say:  ‘God is Christ the son of Mary…’  But Christ said:  ‘O Children of Israel! Worship God, [Allah,] my Lord and your Lord.’  Whoever joins other gods with Allah, [Jesus is God!] Allah will forbid him the Garden, and the Fire will be his abode… 

 Verse 73:  “They do blaspheme who say: ‘God is one of three in a trinity,’ for there is no god except one God, Allah.  If they do not desist from their word of blasphemy, verily a grievous penalty will befall… them. 

Verse 74: “Why do they not turn to Allah and seek his forgiveness… 

Verse 75: “Christ the son of Mary was no more than a [Muslim] Messenger; many were the [Muslim] Messengers that passed away before him…   See how Allah makes His Signs clear to them; yet see in what ways they are deluded away from the [Muslim] truth! 

Verse 76: “Say: ‘Will you worship, besides Allah, something [not even ‘Someone,’ the Lord Jesus Christ] which has no power either to harm or benefit you?  But Allah – He it is that hears and knows all things.” 

 

“Some Muslims say they believe in the Hebrew Torah, but not in the Bible” 

Some Muslims allege, "We believe in the Torah [Old Testament Law] and the Gospel, but there are all these other books in the Bible and we do not believe that those are from God.”  These Muslims are merely following Qur’anic instruction.  Surah 5.68 decrees, “[Christians] have no ground to stand on unless you stand fast by the Law, the Gospel…  [But] it is the [added] revelation that comes to you from your Lord, [the True Gospel of Jesus Christ,] that increases in most of them their obstinate rebellion and blasphemy… [against Islam.]” 

Muslims teach, there was no other ‘messenger’ or ‘prophet’ between Jesus in the 1st century A.D. and Mohammed in the 7th century A.D.  So, they believe the epistles of the New Testament are fakes.  Essentially, they believe that the Qur’an is the only truth and thus remained unadulterated, while the whole Bible, (even the Torah and the Gospel-Books, but especially the epistles,) were changed, corrupted, and added not to fit into the ‘truth’ of Mohammed’s revelations.

When Mohammed wrote in Surah 6:115; 10:64, “The words of Allah are perfect in truth and justice; there is none who can change His words,” he was definitely not referring Muslims to the authenticity of the Bible, as Greeson and his followers allege!   As we will see, it would be impossible to prove from the Qur’an that Allah is the God of the Bible, which he is not!  Secondly, Greeson missed the context of these verses that states, (S. 5:69,) “Those who believe in the Qur’an, those who follow the Jewish Scriptures, and the… Christians – any who believe in Allah and the Last Day, and work [Islamic] righteousness, on them will be no fear…” 

Devout Muslims, as other all other devout religionists, always find excuses to reject Biblical Truth to show people to the  supposedly ‘glorious’ qur’an, or if they are Christian, to their ‘glorious’ but false church doctrines!
