Why the 7th Day?

We learned through reading the Bible  that Jesus was NOT resurrected Sunday morning, but rather, what we would call Saturday night. But why? 

  • Is there any type of spiritual significance to Sunday church worship?
  • What is (if any) the spiritual significance of Jesus raising from the dead at the end of the seventh day? 
  • Is there anything we can look to spiritually back and tell us that he should not have resurrected on the Sabbath?
  • Is there any spiritual significance to Jesus backing the idea that Jesus was resurrected on the first day of the week? 
Let's take a brief moment and explore these questions:

We learned in the previous lesson found here According to the scriptures that are used for Sunday worship justification, that the disciples did not meet on the first day of the week for any special reason, ritual or ceremony. The Day of The Lord points to the period of time when Jesus returns to 'Invade,' the earth! Not a literal day of 24 hours, and definitely not the 1st day of the week. Let the record show: There is therefore NO spiritual significance to Sunday church worship. 

Moving On...

Let's examine this Sabbath Day just a little to see if we can find a 'spiritual significance,' to the fact that Jesus was resurrected from the dead at the very end of the Sabbath Day.

In Genesis man was created on the 6th day (Genesis 1:26-31); and on the 7th day the Bible says: 
"And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.Genesis 2:1-3

I posed a question here and on my Instagram and Facebook pages and I will repeat it here: In the creation it is recorded the evening and the morning was the first day. The evening and the morning was the second day, the evening and the morning was the third day and so on until the sixth. However, we never see the completion of the 7th day. Nothing about the evening and the morning. And I asked all the Bible scholars who follow my page, why this was so. I received no responses so I will answer here.

Because the events that were began on day 1-6 were completed hence 'the evening and the morning...' However, the 7th day alluded to in Genesis chapter 2 has not yet come to pass. Meaning when it says that God rested on the 7th day, since the 7th day hasn't happened yet, God has not yet rested from all his work which he had made.

I would like to first run to very plain statement that Jesus made concerning the Sabbath day that are commonly misunderstood, Let's jump in the middle of the Chapter because we are not concerned with the miracle but about the debate that it sparked.

"The man departed, and told the Jews that it was Jesus, which had made him whole. And therefore 
did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day.  But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.St. John5:14-18
So the first thing is what kind of work is Jesus talking about here? Work to pay bills? Work so that he can take a vacation? No Jesus's work was preaching the gospel, in fact the context of this Chapter is that the man Jesus healed was carrying his bed on the Sabbath day. When he told the Jews that Jesus healed him, they began to persecute him for working on the Sabbath day. 
Lets briefly look at the commandment that was taken out of context to condemn the Master.

"Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy

manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it.Exodus 20:8-11

See what the Jews in John chapter 5 did not understand is that the Sabbath day has a spiritual significance and points to something Bigger.
When the real Sabbath day comes the entire earth will be at rest. Let's look at it:

"And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the devil and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season. And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshiped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.Revelation 20:1-4

In the 19th chapter of Revelation Jesus has returned to the earth, has assaulted the earth, and the Bible (the Word) says that all the fowls were filled with the flesh of all the people Jesus killed with the sword that proceeded out His mouth. So before chapter 20 chaos, and death, War of Armageddon etc. Then Jesus settles the controversy of Zion, and then the earth is at 'Rest,' for 1,000 years! Why 1,000 years and not 500 years or 20,000 years?

"For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night." Psalms 90:4
"But beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years as one day.2Peter 3:8

By the mouth of two witnesses is a fact established, so therefore, this Sabbath day is pointing to a 1,000 year period. The 10 commandments told you that God gave  man 6 days to do ALL his work. And on the Sabbath to rest. When the real Sabbath comes the earth will be so much at rest that even Satan will be bound, so that he cannot break the rest of Jesus.
Let's quickly see if the prophets knew about this "rest."

"And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:... And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins. The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. And the cow and the bear shall feek; their young ones shall lie down together; and thelion shall eat straw like the ox. And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice; den. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea. And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.Isaiah 11:1-10

If that isn't a depiction of an earth at rest, I don't know what is. Praise the Most High, for the time when Satan will be bound! 

So the Sabbath day points to a time period when the entire earth is at rest. This is why we are instructed to REMEMBER the day, and Not work in recognition of that day, because the day hasn't come yet!
So it seems that Jesus was not be facetious when he said that he was the Lord even of the Sabbath Day. (Matthew 12:8 / Mark 2:28 / Luke 6:5 )

Here's a thought: If Jesus is Lord of the Sabbath Day, (remember also in Exodus 20 and Leviticus 23 it is called the Lord's Sabbath or the Sabbath of the Lord), then it actually makes perfect sense for him to be resurrected just before the end of the 7th day of the week with power, since He is the Captain of our salvation (Hebrews 2:10) that is also when we can expect to be resurrected, during the Sabbath! Remember Revelation 20.We still look for the real Sabbath, therefore the day of worship CANNOT be changed lest you change prophecy and the Bible (the Word) itself.

So to re-cap, No spiritual significance to Sunday church worship; It makes perfect sense for Jesus to resurrect from the dead on the 7th day, He said He was the Lord of the Sabbath Day.As our example He foreshadowed Revelation 20 also telling us that our change will come during the real 7th day.
Furthermore, let the record also show, that there is NO spiritual significance to Jesus backing the idea that Jesus was resurrected on the first day of the week! Because why would He!?

And May the Lord add a blessing to the reading of His Word, in Jesus name.

The Lord's Day:Sunday, Saturday or some other day?

The question we want to explore in our third installment, more like part 2 to Saturday or Sunday. Let's take a brief moment and explore these questions.

According to the Catholic Encyclopedia, Sunday worship came from an understanding of several scriptures.
The practice of meeting together on the first day of the week for the celebration of the Eucharist Sacrific is indicated in Acts 20:7; 1 Corinthians 16:2; in Apocalypse 1:10, it is called the Lord's Day. In the Didache (14) the injuction is fiven: "On the Lord's day come together and break bread. And give thanks (offer the Eucharist), after confessing your sins that your sacrifice may be pure". St. Ignatius (Ep. ad Magnes. ix) speaks of Christians as "no longer observing the Sabbath, but living in the observance of the Lord's Day, on which our Life rose again.: "

Slater, T. (1912). Sunday. In The Catholic Encyclopedia. New York: Robert Appleton Company. Retrieved July 14, 2015 from New Advent:

Most usually if someone is attempting to convince you of the authenticity of Sunday worship these scriptures are included in their defense. 

Firstly, understand that the Bible is about to tell us that this understanding, is from Rome, not Jerusalem, it is therefore, Roman in nature and not necessarily Christ-like. If your denomination subscribes to this set of scriptures to mean that "The Lord's Day," is every Sunday that is where they got that understanding from, Rome! 

Now let us explore!

In the book of Zephaniah we find the prophet expounding on the, 'Day of the Lord.'
We will find out very quickly, that the Lord's Day is Not Sunday! Neither is it the Sabbath day. Nor is it any 24-hour cycle...

"The great day of the Lord is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the Lord : the mighty man shall cry there bitterly. That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers. And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the Lord : and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung." Zephaniah‬ ‭1‬:‭14-18

Very different from what is commonly taught, the Lord's Day. Notice who will bring the distress in verse 17.
'I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the Lord...'
If you have ever been told that God doesn't do or bring 'evil,' click here to read some examples.

The prophet Isaiah also saw this day, and wrote:
"The burden of Babylon, which Isaiah the son of Amoz did see... They come from a far country, from the end of heaven, even the Lord, and the weapons of his indignation, to destroy the whole land. Howl ye; for the day of the Lord is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty. Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man's heart shall melt... Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it." Isaiah‬ ‭13‬:‭1, 5-7, 9‬

What you just read about was the destruction of Babylon (also known as the European Union EU) at the hand of God through men, namely those of the East, Russia also known as Medeia (the Medes), Gog or Magog and its allies.  This is part of what will take place during the, 'Day of the Lord!'

Now i know you're waiting to go to the New Testament, and before we do, the link to the New Testament lies in the Old Testament:
"For the satras of heaven and the consetllations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be
darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine. And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible... Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the Lord or hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger." Isaiah 13:10-13

You should really take time this week to read the entire 13th chapter of Isaiah; it gets deep. 
However, for now remember these unmissable/unmistakable events in verses 10 and 13

Finally: one of the scriptures used to explain the Lord's Day as Sunday was, Revelation 1:10

"The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John: Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw." Revelation‬ ‭1‬:‭1-2‬

The purpose of the Book of Revelation was for Jesus Christ to reveal things which must shortly come to pass to His servants.

Now to the verse in question:
"I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet," Revelation‬ ‭1‬:‭9-10‬

Notice how it didn't say that John was in exile, or that he was in prison on Patmos. John was on the Island of Patmos to receive the word of God and to record what he saw in a book v. 11. Verse 10 is simply saying that physically John was on the isle of Patmos, but spiritually (his mind was projected) he was present on the Lord's Day or The Day of the Lord! Likely he was there because of the close proximity to the seven churches he would be writhing to.

Firstly, let us reason together saith the Lord, so I ask the question what significance does the day of the week have in the prophecy of the End Times? Anyone who has read the book of Revelation know that the events of only 1 chapter cannot happen in a 24-hour cycle.

Next let's look at something that John saw:
"And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places." Revelation 6:12-14

Did you catch the links! John was seeing the same time period that Isaiah saw,. The Day of the Lord's wrath! Isaiah said the Sun shall be darkened, John said it became black. This is an unmissable/unmistakable event, it can only happen once right?

Now that that fallacy has been debunked, the other two verses used to justify Sunday worship do not even mention the phrase, the Lord's Day.

"Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come." 1Corinthians 16:2
This verse alone says nothing. Alone this verse proves nothing. Beginning at verse 1 Paul is talking about taking up a collection on the first day of the week. Has nothing to do with what day to meet for worship. In comparison read the Old Testament and see if you can find Israel ever taking up a collection on the day of worship? If you think about it, to take up a collection on the day 'designated for worship,' seems a little backwards. I thank the God of Israel that my church does not participate in the practice of taking up collections for anything. There is simply a tithe box for you to drop tithes and offerings in on your way in or on your way out of the building.

Lastly in Acts 20 Paul breaks bread with the disciples on the first day of the week and preached to them. I will not quote it here because I believe it holds that little relevance. But I will comment and say that every day that the disciples ate together, you can bet your last money, that they broke bread together. 
The fact that Paul preached to the disciples on the first day of the week means nothing except that Paul was a preacher.The post that you are currently reading was began on a Monday (the 2nd day of the week), I worked on this well beyond midnight and into Wednesday (the 3rd day of the week). My Church has a TV show where the ministers preach on Tuesday and Thursday nights depending on where you live. During Bible study Q and A on Wednesday nights the teachers 'preach!' So again means nothing, proves nothing! That is so over-obvious that I feel like I am talking down to you my readers by typing this paragraph (I'm sorry :'-[  ).

May the Lord add a blessing to the reading and studying of His word in Jesus name.

Sunday or Saturday?

Greetings in the name of Jesus. Thank you for clicking, for another session of #OnlineBibleBootCamp. This week we want to deal with the day of worship, Saturday or Sunday. Now before we begin let me assure you, that this will not be like most debates of this sort; therefore, for Part I we want to focus in on some very basic questions that are often overlooked:

  1. What day was Jesus raised from the dead?
  2. What is the spiritual significance of the Sabbath Day?
  3. Does Sunday have ANY significance at all whatsoever? If so what?
  4. If Sunday is not the Lord's Day, when is it?
For readers that may be unfamiliar, the 'Lord's Day,' is commonly thought of by most 'Christians,' as Sunday. Most will cite the reason Sunday is called the Lord's Day, is because Sunday is the day that Jesus was raised from the dead. They may even seem like the same question, but we will find as the Bible speaks that these two days are very different, and very far apart.

Let's Begin:

First things first, let us find some grounding in the Word. Some reassurance that these simple topics are covered in the Bible. 

"Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets." Amos 3:7

This is not talking about the secrets of the internet, it says he reveals HIS secret to the prophets. So what the Bible is telling us here, is any mystery or secret (even if it is only a mystery to you) about God that you would like to know about, the prophets wrote about it. Notice it did not say/include priests. Nor did it include Apostles! Secrets are revealed to the prophets!
Everything Jesus said and did was written about in the books of the prophets. The book of Luke is over 75% plagiarism of the Old Testament. As it should be because new testament was to "testify," that what Moses and the prophets wrote was the truth!

So just remember for the rest of your life, anything you read written by an Apostle, if you can't find a prophet that wrote about it also, you are most likely misunderstanding what the Apostle is saying.

Next when we talk days and times, we have to understand that our Creator's days and times do not always neatly fit with our days and times. Besides if you do a little research, you'll find 99.9% of our days and times were established by pagans. 

So what about God's times? Let's go to the beginning:

"In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.  And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.  And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day."

So the first day was characterized by the evening and the morning. Notice ho the evening occurs before the morning in God's day..

"And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day." v.8

"And the evening and the morning were the third day." v. 13
"And the evening and the morning were the fourth day." v.19
"And the evening and the morning were the fifth day." v. 23
"And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them." v. 26-27
"And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day." v. 31 Genesis 2:1-31

So, the same demonstration through out the creation. Notice that if you continue to read through chapter 3, there is no explanation of an evening and the morning were the sixth day. This will be discussed further in subsequent chapters.

Now we understand that in the Bible, the day begins in the evening and the latter part of the day is while the sun is visible in the sky.

So, straight to the point then, let's look at the Gospels , one-by-one and see what they say concerning the resurrection of Jesus, The Messiah.

"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. And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men. And the angel answered and said unto 
the woman, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was 
crucified. He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see 
the place where the Lord lay." Matthew 28:1-6

Our first witness, Matthew has written that by the time it began to dawn towards the first day of the week, (what we call Sunday), the angel had to come down to tell them that Jesus wasn't there. For the record there are 2 definitions to the word 'Dawn.'
1: noun - the first appearance of light in the sky before sunrise.
2: verb - to come into existence. 

Whichever definition you choose, as it began to happen (not after it happened), at the beginning He wasn't there!

"And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices that they might come and anoint him. And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun. 

And they said among themselves, Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulchre? 

And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great. 

And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were affrighted.

And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him." Mark 16:1-6

Again, according to the Gospel of Mark, the disciples arrived "at the rising of the sun," it didn't say 

Jesus was just waking up, or just leaving, or even just left. He wasn't even there!

Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them. And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.

 And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.  And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments:  And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee." Luke 24:1-6

Same story, and finally,

"The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre. Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they have laid him." 

John 20:1-2

Now that the Bible has established that Jesus  was all the way out of the grave by the time the First day of the week began. Now let us turn to the holy prophets to explain the secrets of when the messiah died and was resurrected. 

In Daniel Chapter 9, the prophet understood that the Lord would make Jerusalem desolate, but afterwards He would deliver the children of Israel out of their oppression AND He would usher in the Kingdom of God. Contrary to popular belief Daniel knew this! If you read any prophecy about the children of Israel being returned to the land of Israel, 99% of the prophecies also include the destruction of the world.

Let us therefore pick up Daniel at the end of his prayer (you should read the entire chapter of Daniel 9 on your own).

"Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most HolyKnow therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.  And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate." Daniel 9:24-27
Focusing on the part of the prophecy that deals with Jesus (highlighted in orange). We know this is speaking of Jesus because of all his characteristics in verse 24.  [ reconciliation - Colossians 1:21 Romans 5:10; everlasting righteousness Matthew 25:40-46; seal up prophecy/anoint the Most Holy-
Matthew 3:13-17 ]

 In verse 27, it says that he (Messiah) will confirm the covenant with many for one week...
Before we go any further we must understand that we are talking prophecy here, so we must needs, have the Bible (the Word) explain itself.

I will not detail them here, but for #OnlineBibleBootCamp homework everyone should visit the following set of scriptures to see why a week in prophecy means 7 years. 
{Jacob worked 7 years to marry a woman, he was deceived, and in order to marry the woman he wanted he had to 'fulfill her week,' at which time he worked an additional 7 years.Genesis 29:1-28

So, Jesus came in the flesh, to to confirm the new covenant. And in the middle of His week, He was cut-off. If a week is 7 years, and Messiah was cut-off in the midst, simple math will tell us how long the Messiah's ministry will be before He is killed. 7 divided by 2 equals 3 1/2 ( 7 / 2 = 3.5 ). And we know through history that Jesus lived 33.5 years.
However, His ministy did not begin until his Baptism, in order to give us a message, of the importance of Baptism.

"Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened, And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased. And Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph, which was the son of Heli," Luke 3:21-23
It was at this point He 'became,' the Christ. 

Lastly, the prophecy informs us that Jesus died in the middle (midst) of a literal week.

The only 'sign,' that Jesus gave us that He was the Christ was recorded as:  " Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee.  But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas:  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." Matthew 12:38-40 & Matthew 16:4

If you still believe (or have been told/taught) that Jesus died Good Friday, and was resurrected early Easter-Sunday morning, ask yourself or your teacher: What about the 3rd night? 

Now, if we believe the prophets, Jesus went into the Grave on Wednesday...
This is not rocket-science, this is kindergarten counting to 3.

Below is an aid to help you count. Remember, when God created Life, and the Earth the evening came first, then the morning.

This should give us Jesus in the grave Wednesday night, Thursday night, and Friday night; Also covering Thursday morning, Friday morning, and Saturday morning. Thru simple reasoning we see that in order for Jesus himself to Not be a liar, he HAD to have resurrected at SUN-DOWN on Saturday night!
No wonder by the time the Apostles got to the tomb early the next morning Jesus was all the way gone and angles were sitting there to tell what happened. 

In our next installment we will explore the spiritual significance of both the Sabbath Day as well as Sunday concerning the Bible (the Word). However, some people (if you are like me) will be shocked at this information about Jesus and Sunday. Therefore, I will end with this scripture that most of us have heard in one context but if applied here, may make it more understandable. 

"And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath:  Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath." Mark 2:27-28
