BT Daily: Did Jesus Christ Teach Easter?


[Darris McNeely] Was Jesus Christ resurrected
on Easter Sunday morning after having been killed on a Good Friday afternoon? The answer is no. Whatever you’ve learned, whatever you’ve been
taught about that topic from your church and your religious studies does not match up with
Scripture. Let’s read Matthew 12:40, and notice something
here. Christ was challenged by some to give a sign
as to who He was. He said, “An evil adulterous generation seeks
after a sign. There’s only going to be one sign that you
will know that I am the Messiah. It’s the same sign as Jonah.” He said that, “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.” Three days and three nights. It’s the only sign Jesus gave that He was
the Messiah. Now when you look at the gospel accounts of
the death and the resurrection of Jesus Christ with all the Scriptures put together, it’s
very clear the week that Jesus died shows us a very different story than the one that
you have been taught and may still believe. Jesus Christ had a Passover meal with his
disciples on the night before he was arrested and crucified. He was betrayed by Judas Iscariot at 9 a.m.
the next morning, which was actually the 14th day of the month when the Passover’s services
were to be held. He was crucified. He died at 3 p.m.. And yet they put his body into the grave,
according to Scripture, before sundown or right at sundown on that 14th day. So as that day was ending, dawning to what
was called a Sabbath and in reality was a holy day, the first day of what is called
the Days of Unleavened Bread, His body was in the tomb and remained there for one full
day and one full night. The next day was a Friday, the 16th day of
the Hebrew calendar. His body was still in the grave all day and
again all night. That’s two days and two nights. The third day was a weekly Sabbath, a Saturday,
that week. Christ’s body was in the grave through the
night all that day. And then at the very end of the day, after
three days and three nights in the grave is when Jesus Christ was resurrected. Not the next day on Sunday morning as the
Easter tradition says. So, we have one day, one night, two days and
two nights, three days and three nights. It’s all in the Scripture. It’s all in the Bible. Check it out. Jesus was not resurrected on Easter Sunday. That’s a tradition that was added later on. The truth opens up the true understanding
of who Jesus Christ was, why he came, and what his life, death, and resurrection means. Check out your belief, and check it out with
