Good Wednesday, NOT Good Friday

Jesus was NOT crucified on Friday. Somehow, that error was deducted erroneously, but it is NOT in the Bible. Nowhere in the Bible does it say Christ died on Friday. It has always been erroneously deducted He died on a Friday since the Bible DOES say it was the day BEFORE a Sabbath. But ALL Jewish holidays are Sabbaths ( just like Catholics do Mass on Christmas EVEN if it's on a Tuesday.)

Whoever said Friday was the day He died ignores two Scriptures, one in which Jesus himself said " as Jonah was in the belly of the whale for 3 days and 3 nights, so shall the Son of Man be in the belly of the earth" ( Matthew 12;40). So the math doesn't even work with Jesus dying on Friday and being already resurrected BEFORE dawn on Sunday morning. I have heard so many LAUGHABLE, ridiculous explanations how you count Friday afternoon to Sunday morning and get 3 days and 3 nites.

The Truth IS in the Bible.

"Therefore it was the Preparation Day that the bodies should not remain on the cross on the Sabbath, ( for THAT Sabbath was a high day)"...John 19;31

That day was the Jewish VERY important religious holiday, PASSOVER. That is why Jesus had to die on PASSOVER, as He was " the Lamb of God". PASSOVER was Thursday, so Jesus died on Wednesday, not Friday.

NOW do the math. NOW, it makes sense as EXACTLY 3 days and 3 nights JUST like Jesus said.

So whoever came up with Good Friday does not know the Bible, nor read

Read the passage in John (above) AGAIN.

Go ahead, read it in YOUR BIBLE. It says it was a High Sabbath, meaning a Special Sabbath

( holiday), NOT the " common" Sabbath which is Saturday.

So for the record, if you WANT to be accurate ( and actually make mathematical sense), it is Good Wednesday, NOT Good Friday.
