That's right... Thursday
For Christians we are closing in on "Easter" Sunday, better named Resurrection Sunday, the day we observe that Christ arose from His earthly tomb, defeated death, and provided a means of salvation after this life to all those who believe His truth.
Growing up, I'd always heard that so-called "Good Friday" was the observance of the day when Christ was crucified and buried. Most prophecies of this historical event always just said "three day", meaning part of Friday, Saturday and Sunday counted as "three days".
But Jesus Himself said this as recorded in Matthew 12:40
For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
You cannot get three days and three night from a Good Friday observance, but you do from Thursday. Thursday night, Friday night, Saturday night, Friday day, Saturday day, and part of Sunday day fulfills this properly.
Also if you factor in that the Jewish Passover lambs were brought in the Sunday before (Palm Sunday) and observed four days for spot and blemish, this means they were sacrificed on Thursday as well. As Christ is the final Passover Lamb, this is completely fitting.
Finally, as it was Passover, the Jews had an additional High Sabbath which would have been on Friday before the weekly Saturday Sabbath. No work could have been performed on such a Holy day, including the burial and tending to His body.
So there's a brief lesson as we observe the real reason for the "Easter" holiday. It's amazing how many traditions are actually contrary to truth when you check them out.
However you spend Easter, I hope you find time to be in church. Worshipping if you're a Christian. Learning if you're not yet.
May God bless you this season!
