I Cannot Get 3 Days And 3 Nights, Can U?
Now despite the fact that Jesus Himself said that He would be in the grave 3 days and 3 nights, man has come up with the tradition of Jesus dying on Good Friday and rising early Sunday morning. In following this tradition, not only does one not observe one of God's Holy Days, which is the Passover, they directly deny the words of Jesus. Because it was Jesus who gave the sign of being in the grave 3 days and 3 nights. The tradition of Good Friday and Easter clearly does not line up with scripture. Because following this tradition the maximum one has Jesus in the grave is 1 day and 2 nights.

According to tradition, if Jesus had died on Friday, He would have been in the grave Friday night, Saturday day and Saturday night. One would not count Sunday because in John (20:1) it states that the 1st day of the week which is Sunday, Mary came to the grave site when it was still dark. In Luke (24:1-6) They find that the stone which was placed in front of the sepulcher had been removed and an angel tells them that Jesus had already risen.

How They Say It Happened
Tradition of Man - Good Friday & Easter

Friday-first night
Saturday-first day
Saturday-second night
Sunday-second day

One should take note, that what the majority of modern day Christians practice or follow come directly from the Roman Catholic Church. You had non spiritual people trying to decipher events that were spiritual. Since the scriptures stated, that the preparation day, was the day before the Sabbath, they automatically assumed this event took place on a Friday, because they knew the Lord's Sabbath was from Friday evening to Saturday evening. That is how they came up with the concept that Jesus died on Friday and He rose early Sunday morning. What they failed to take into account were the Lord's Holy Days or as they are also called High Sabbaths. There are seven yearly Sabbaths, and they, with the exception of Pentecost, can fall on any day of the week. At the beginning of this lesson, it was explained in Leviticus (23:4) that the Passover which is the 14th of the month, is the day before the feast of Unleavened Bread, which is a Holy Day or A High Sabbath. The Passover is sometimes referred as the preparation day because they used this day to prepare for the feast. The Feast of Unleavened Bread is the Sabbath which was being refereed to in Mark 15:42) when it was stated that Joseph craved the body of Jesus. Jesus had been crucified on the Passover and the next day was the Feast of Unleavened Bread.

Easter: the hand-me-down myth

The truth is that those so-called wise and prudent theologians know absolutely nothing about the so-called resurrection simply because it never happened. Easter, or the celebration of the resurrection, is merely a tradition, a tradition that you have been taught from childhood, and coming into maturity you have accepted it because that is what you were taught. That is what you read bout. That is what your parents made you observed every Easter Sunday. Thus, you continued to go along with it and before you knew it, you had carelessly assumed what you now believe without question or proof. Easter is the feast of feasts celebrated in honor of the risen Christ. You have even reached the point where you will defend vigorously and emotionally your belief, a belief that can lead you straight to hell.

It has become human nature to flow with the stream, and to go along with the crowd, to believe and perform like those around you. And, even when you stumble on the truth, you will not believe because like the majority of the people, you stubbornly refuse to believe what you are unwilling to believe. There is an old saying that says:

He who is convinced against his will is of the same opinion still.

Excerpted from: The Fallacy of Easter
Easter is a pagan ritual. It is wrong. Rabbits and eggs worship is not found in the Holy Bible. We as believers are told to remember Jesus' death on the cross, not the resurrection.

If you follow the holy scriptures and not the traditions of man you will see that Jesus was taken for questioning the day AFTER the Passover. It falls on the 14th day of the first month of the (Jewish) year. This could be any day of the week. Good Friday is a man-made thing. What we DO KNOW, the time Jesus gave up his life (for the record, he knew what would happen), he rose from the dead after the Sabbath. So let look at the dates:

Wednesday - The Passover, Jesus kept up all night for questioning
Thursday - beaten, falsely convicted, crucified, died, and buried - one day, one night
Friday - in the tomb, two days, two nights
Saturday - in the tomb, three days, three nights
The Sabbath ends on Saturday ... we are told when Mary went to the tomb to attend to the body.

In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre. - Matthew 28:1

Ah...a closer step to the truth and more factual, too!

Philippe--Easter: the hand-me-down myth is right on point, thanks!

Oshun Auset, you are correct!

alagory[ies or rather allegories are "...the representation of abstract ideas or principles by characters, figures, or events in narrative, dramatic, or pictorial form.

It seems that the spin masters [i.e. the Church] have mixed a little of both pagan myth [i.e. ancient rituals of fertilization] and reality [scientific fact of the spring equinox] and thus/vio'la created a unique false animal of worship, Easter...amazing!
