"Three Days/Three Nights"

“Three Days/Three Nights”

Blessings folk!

Was about to ask you to explain the following verse...when a friend posted an inquiry about it on Facebook.


People want to know.

So, think on this statement of Jesus…

Matthew 12:38-40
38 Then some of the scribes and Pharisees answered him, saying, “Teacher, we wish to see a sign from you.”
39 But he answered them,
“An evil and adulterous generation seeks for a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah.
For just 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.

To be certain that we are considering the same thing…
What does Jesus’ statement about the Son of Man being in the belly of the earth say to our “Holy Week” activities of “Easter”, “Good Friday”, “Maundy Thursday”, “Seders” and the like?

Does it matter?
