    No, being swallowed by a fish is the sign of Jonah. But how long was Jonah in the fish?

    Jesus did not go into the belly of fish. Right, please?
    So,Does one mean that Jesus did not show the sign he promised to the Jews?

    Regards

    Time was not the essence of the Sign of Jonah, that Jesus promised to the Jews. Jesus made no promise to show any sigh to the gentiles. His mission was only for the Jews and to no other nation, please. Right, please?

    Regards

    You can say "please" all you want but it changes nothing. Jesus said the ONLY sign would be rge three days and nights in the tomb. You may not believe it but that is what he said. And some people actually believe him. If you do not then that is your choice. But it does not change anything. Yes, please.

    Tbone,
    There were many Prophecies in the Holy Scriptures, that we’re not understood u til after they came true, or at least started to be fulfilled.
    Since we know that Jesus was Sacrificed on Friday, and he was resurrected on Sunday, it had to be true that Jesus was in the grave parts of three days, part of Friday, all of Saturday, part of Sunday.
    One thing to remember, back in the first century, in Rome, which the Jews also used, days started in the evening, and went to the evening of the next day. Not too hard to understand.

    Sorry, my friend. We do NOT know Jesus died on Friday. This is ASSUMED because it says the next day was a sabbath. But there were TWO sabbaths. One for the Passover and one for the weekly Saturday sabbath. We also do not know definetely that He rose on Sunday. When the women went to the tomb on Sunday morning, it was ALREADY empty. You rely too much on what the major churches teach but this does not prove anything.

    12jtartar,
    re: "Since we know that Jesus was Sacrificed on Friday..."

    How do you account for the lack of the third night time that the Messiah said would be involved with His time in the "heart of the earth"?

    And again, nothing says it was a Friday. It was the day before a sabbath but the Passover is a sabbath. Remember Jesus was a Jew.

    Good point. Jesus was a rebellious Jew.

    lostwanderingsoul,

    Why did you respond to my post and not 12jtartar's post since your comments were meant for him?

    Jesus also knew how to count and when he said three days and three nights he meant exactly that.

    Please mention "three days and three nights" from the four gospels with consensus, that is , Matthew. Mark, John and Luke.

    That's an issue for a different topic. Perhaps you could start one.

    Why? You do not believe it and will not change your mind.

    There are no example. I guarantee no Jew ever paid for a three day and three night vacation and then left on Friday evening and came back on Sunday morning.

    I agree it makes no sense.

    One knows that they were not eye-witnesses of the event of Crucifixion of Jesus, so their accounts differ with one another. The Gospels were not inspired either as the Holy Ghost could not give different stories to each one of them. Right, please?

    Regards
