Health for your soul:

Many today are questioning the tradition that Christ was crucified on the 6th day, rested on the 7th and resurrected on the 1st. The major objection comes from a misunderstanding of the idiom “three days and three nights” cited by Jesus in reference to the sign of Jonah, in Matthew 12:40. Yet careful study of the gospel accounts reveals two powerful truths: that Jesus indeed was crucified on the 6th day and rested on the 7th, and that the Sabbath is reckoned by sunrise, not sunset.
