Thanks for your help, but there are still things not clear.
three nights and three days is three days and three nights isn’t it?
the mention of both night and day doesn’t leave room for interperating just a part of a day as a day does it?
I read the first two links, didn’t get through all of the third, but one thing it seems to say is the mention of the first day of the week.
I am no language expert, but have noticed that first day of the week as translated in english of the verses metioned is not in neither the Greek or Latin.
From what i notice when is translated the first day of the week, the word day is not in the text and the word week is the same word that is used as Sabbath.
In the Septuagint the Word Sabbatwn means the Sabbath but now in the new testament means Sabbath and week.
The word Edoma was used to translated week in the old testament, and even the vulgate seemed to used a transliteration of the Greek word for week.
It could be said the Greek language changed a bit by the time the new testament was written, and Hebrew words may have been borrowed and used aswell for other words.
But the main problem i have with this is why Jerome didn’t use the same word for week as he did in the old testament.
The words used for week in the new testament in both Greek and latin, seem to be a transliteration of the Hebrew word Shbt or as we call Sabbath.
The day the two Mary’s actually came to the tomb is called first Sabbath or one Sabbath.
But we know they rested on the Sabbath according to the commandment. Luke 23:56
I hear some say all the days of the feast of unleavened bread were called Sabbaths.
Why is the day the two Mary’s came to the tomb called Sabbath?
And when other times first day of the week is used, why is does the word which week is translated from very much look like in is a transliteration of Sabbath or Shbt?
As a said i’m no language expert, and there may be a good explanation, maybe there re some Catholic here who know some Latin who could bring some light on the subject.
Thanks for your time, and may God show us His truth.
