Following the spices will lead us to a very practical and simple solution to the three days and three nights between the burial and resurrection of Jesus, and there really is nothing spicy about it. Although, I must say, resolving the apparent contradictions in the gospel accounts is quite a savory proposition. Continue reading “Three Days and Three Nights: A Spicy Solution”
In a previous post we looked at a number of Scripture references related to the three days and three nights will relation to the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. When summarizing the verses, we noticed different statements: “the third day”, “after three days”, and “three days and three nights”.
The Scriptures do not contradict themselves, and so we are left with the question as to how these three different statements can mean the same thing. When we look at the buying and preparation of spices, we discover that by their actions the women hold the key to the whole mystery as to when Jesus died, was buried and rose again. Continue reading “Three Days and Three Nights: The Women hold the Key”
When someone makes a comment about the three days and three nights as related to the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the conversation usually heats up a little when people are convinced about what it means, and about how it was fulfilled. But when asked about how they came to believe what they believe, they are a little less adamant, and begin to hum and haw, unsure of the source of their beliefs.
The likelihood is, that the majority of people reading this post would say that Jesus died on a Friday and rose again on the Sunday. And why would most say that? Simply put, it is because tradition teaches that Jesus died on Friday afternoon and rose on Sunday morning. Bear with me for a few posts and I will outline how that the Friday afternoon death and the Sunday morning resurrection belief is based on tradition and not on the Scriptures.

If given the task, most of us would have a really difficult time organizing the Bible in chronological order. Our diagram would probably look like a poorly made spider’s web. On the other hand, many of us would love to be able to read the Bible in chronological order, that is, to be able to read the stories within the Bible as they relate to one another.
The Lord once again has provided our generation with several options in order to be able to do just that. This post will deal with the review of the Reese Chronological Bible. Continue reading “The Reese Chronological Bible helps organize the library – Read Bible Chronological Order”
A few months ago, someone approached me and excitedly asked me, “Did you know that the Old Testament is not in chronological order?”. This person continued by sharing that they had just discovered that some of the prophets had actually lived during the time of the kings of Israel and of Judah.
The interesting thing is, that this person was not the first one to make this same comment to me. The books of the typical Bible Old Testament are not ordered chronologically, and this can be confusing to someone who doesn’t know, and maybe thinks, that events run chronologically from Genesis to Malachi.
