Three Days
« on: May 22, 2006, 09:51:26 AM »

Dear Ray,
If Jesus said that the ONLY sign he would give the unbelieving generation was that,like Jonah, he would be in the grave for three days and three nights, are we to believe that he failed to deliver this 'proof' because he died at 3pm Friday and rose 6am on Sunday? (That's 39 hours not 72, just a bit over halfway!)
Yours sincerely, Steve
 

Dear Steve:
You are making the same mistake that millions of Christians have been making for two thousand years. Jesus NEVER SAID that He would be three days and three nights "IN THE GRAVE," as you suggest.  Neither did Jesus say He would be in a "TOMB" for that period of time. Neither did He say that He would be "DEAD" for that period of time. We need to pay strict attention what a Scripture says and does not say. Likewise I get asked many times a year about "to be absent from the body  IS  to be present with the Lord."  There is no such Scripture.  I will explain this PARABLE of three days and three nights sometime in the future.  It will take at least ten pages to do so.
God be with you,
Ray
