    I’m looking for some opinions concerning the Matthew 12:38-40 scripture, where Jesus refers to Jonah being in the whale’s belly three days and three nights, that He’d be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

    If a skeptic were to question you about this prophecy, that Jesus was crucified on Friday and resurrected on Sunday, not being three days and three nights, how would you answer the skeptic’s question?

    I’ve found a number of solutions on the net; some really go into detail about the Greek meanings and what not, but not sure which one to believe.

    Thanks…

    Aww shucks, I should’ve done a search first before I started a new topic. I found a few threads that have discussed this issue.

    Moderators feel free to delete this thread if you like. But I'd like to keep it open. I'm not looking for a debate (as what the other threads turn into and the original question gets lost), just a few reasonable opinions.

    This is an opinion I’ve found on the net. The author suggested that the time began once Jesus was betrayed, which was on a Tuesday night when Judas first went to the chief priests and received the thirty pieces of silver.

    Does this sound legit?

    There's quite a thread on this somewhere else. You might look on other forums and see if you can find it. Seems to me it was still quite active last week.
