3 Days & 3 Nights - Literally!

"Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee. But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas: for as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here.The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here."(Matthew 12:38-42)

The download link in this article is a timeline showing that Jesus was in the tomb for a literal three days and three nights. When I first began this study, I did not think that it was a necessary detail for the Scripture we have before us. However, I soon discovered that the overwhelming evidence of the truth of the resurrection and the infallibility of the Bible are at the very heart of the charge Jesus has against these Scribes and Pharisees. To the smallest detail the words of Scripture are true!

There is more than enough evidence to establish a gospel faith in Christ and we are without excuse if we do not follow Him as disciples.
