    ???Good Friday???

    It was a bright spring morning that Easter Day in the mid 1950’s. The sun shown brightly through the Sunday School windows at St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church on N. Water St., Byram, CT. Our Sunday School teacher was guiding us through the events of Holy Week culminating in this special Sunday morning. At some point she mentioned of Jesus rising on the third day. All of us children were calculating in our minds (some on fingers), when one boy suddenly raised his hand and exclaimed, “Friday to Sunday is NOT three days. Teacher then tried to explain this incongruency concerning “three” days with some fuzzy, pseudo-math.

    Let us relate what Jesus stated on this subject: Matthew 12:40
    For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
    It is impossible to count three nights nor three days between Friday afternoon and Sunday morning. We must conclude that either Jesus was a liar (which is impossible) or the Church is simply in error. One must remember that Satan has successfully led unwitting folks to believe that the Word of God does not say what it actually says.
    We must also be aware that what is traditionally called the Last Supper was, in fact, the Passover Seder being celebrated: Luke 22:8 And he sent Peter and John, saying, Go and prepare us the Passover, that we may eat.
