The general position of many present-day followers of Yahweh is that Yahushua the messiah was resurrected on the seventh-day Sabbath.
For them, it seems that the idea of the messiah being resurrected on the first day of the week (Sunday), which would also coincide with the Christian holiday of Easter, is just too repugnant to consider.
Besides, even the term Christian is offensive to many of these individuals. Point to the Roman Catholic Church for most of the blame, and now you’re on the way to creating a more volatile situation!
Is it actually possible to determine the exact day of the week on which Yahushua the messiah was resurrected?
When all of the evidence is thoroughly considered, this study will provide proof that will demonstrate that the actual day of Yahushua’s resurrection is fully attainable.
First, Yahushua tells the scribes and Pharisees that the only sign of his messiahship that would be given to an evil and adulterous generation is “the sign of Jonah the prophet.”
For even as the prophet Jonah was in the belly of the huge fish three days and three nights, so will the son of man be in the heart of the earth three days and three nights. (Matthew 12:38-40; see Luke 11:29-30)
