I was mistaken there, my apologies.
Trying to synchronize our modern understanding of timekeeping with ancient Jewish practices is somewhat confusing!
Let’s try this again:
Friday, aka Yom Ha Sheeshee (the 6th day), begins at Sunset on Thursday.
A modern American day, using a 12-hour clock, begins at 12:00am and ends at 11:59pm. An ancient Jewish day began roughly at 6pm (the first watch of the night) and ended at 5:59pm (the 12th hour) - Sunset to sunset.
Jesus dies at 3pm Friday - Jesus dies at about the 9th hour on Yom Ha´shee´shee, the 6th day (aka preparation day [for the Sabbath]) - so Jesus is dead 1 day. However, in Jewish reckoning, any part of a day includes the entire day. So in Jewish thought, Jesus has been dead 1 day and 1 night.
Jesus is in the tomb by Sunset Friday evening, so it’s now the Shabbat, first watch of the night - now the second night, so it’s been 2 nights. Now he’s been dead 1 day and 2 nights, or 2 days in Jewish reckoning.
The Sun rises at 6am Saturday, Jesus is dead on the Shabbat. It’s still 2 days and 2 nights at this point.
Sunsets on Holy Saturday ushering in the third day/night, aka Yom Reeshon, the first day of the week.
Now Jesus has been dead 3 nights and 2 days, or 3 days and 3 nights in Jewish reckoning.
The Sun rises early on the first day of the week. The Son rises early on the first day of the week, after 3 days and 3 nights in the belly of the earth.
Here’s a better illustration than the one I posted before:
The people who see a problem here are simply ignorant of ancient Jewish time reckoning. Do the skeptics think the Apostles were morons? Like they couldn’t count the days correctly and made a mistake about something as major as that? Or is it more likely the skeptics simply don’t understand the way the Apostles were viewing things?
I think I’ve proven beyond any doubt that it’s the case that skeptics are ignorant of the Apostles worldview - not that the Apostles were idiots who couldn’t tell time.
