Anyone who can perform simple arithmetic knows that according to the Friday tradition you cannot get 3 Days and 3 Nights. Therefore one must carefully scrutinize the exact timing and have a proper understanding of biblical chronology and the calendar used to base the celebration of such an important time in history.
The creation week reveals that Christ would die 5,500 Years from Adam and He would rise on the 6th Day of the Week. As I've stated at great length in my previous work on my blog our 7 Day Week is a sign that God ordained 7,000 Years for the world, so I will refrain from going over that again. Now the timing of Adam's creation is crucial as God made animals at the beginning of the 6th Day while Adam was made in the middle of the same day. Seeing that Adam is a type of Christ, his creation from the dust of the earth is a sign of Christ rising from the dead; at the end of the 6th Day God gave Adam dominion over the world and all the creatures in it: this is a sign of Jesus's Millenial Reign where He will rule over all the earth and the nations with a rod of iron after 6,000 Years from Adam. The timing of Adam's creation occured exactly 3 Days and 3 Nights after God called the dry land from the seas and commanded the earth to produce much fruit and green life. Adam's creation from the dust of the earth is also a sign of Christ being in the heart of the earth. This is also why Daniel went through great pains to tell us the exact timing of Christ's death which would occur 69 Weeks/483 Years from the decree of Cyrus in 5017 AM. And this I proved in my blog post Biblical Chronology: From Adam To The End Of The World (5017-5500 Anno Mundi - Babylon To Cyrus; Cyrus To Christ). For those who wish for an explicit statement of this only need to read 1 Adam and Eve 3 and Gospel of Nicodemus/Acts of Pilate 22:
God said to Adam, "I have ordained on this earth days and years, and thou and thy seed shall dwell and walk in it, until the days and years are fulfilled; when I shall send the Word that created thee, and against which thou hast transgressed, the Word that made thee come out of the garden and that raised thee when thou wast fallen. Yea, the Word that will again save thee when the five days and a half are fulfilled." But when Adam heard these words from God, and of the great five days and a half, he did not understand the meaning of them. For Adam was thinking that there would be but five days and a half for him, to the end of the world. And Adam wept, and prayed God to explain it to him. Then God in His mercy for Adam who was made after His own image and similitude, explained to him, that these were 5,000 and 500 years; and how One would then come and save him and his seed. But God had before that made this covenant with our father, Adam, in the same terms, ere he came out of the garden, when he was by the tree whereof Eve took the fruit and gave it him to eat. In as much as when our father Adam came out of the garden, he passed by that tree, and saw how God had then changed the appearance of it into another form, and how it withered. And as Adam went to it he feared, trembled and fell down; but God in His mercy lifted him up, and then made this covenant with him. And, again, when Adam was by the gate of the garden, and saw the cherub with a sword of flashing fire in his hand, and the cherub grew angry and frowned at him, both Adam and Eve became afraid of him, and thought he meant to put them to death. So they fell on their faces, and trembled with fear. But he had pity on them, and showed them mercy; and turning from them went up to heaven, and prayed unto the Lord, and said:--"Lord, Thou didst send me to watch at the gate of the garden, with a sword of fire. "But when Thy servants, Adam and Eve, saw me, they fell on their faces, and were as dead. O my Lord, what shall we do to Thy servants?" Then God had pity on them, and showed them mercy, and sent His Angel to keep the garden. And the Word of the Lord came unto Adam and Eve, and raised them up. And the Lord said to Adam, "I told thee that at the end of five days and a half, I will send my Word and save thee. "Strengthen thy heart, therefore, and abide in the Cave of Treasures, of which I have before spoken to thee." And when Adam heard this Word from God, he was comforted with that which God had told him. For He had told him how He would save him.
How much clearer does that need to be? Here we also read about the earliest mention of The Word of God whom John revealed to us is Christ! And what else do read?
"After these things Pilate went to the temple of the Jews, and called together all the rulers and scribes, and doctors of the law, and went with them into a chapel of the temple. And commanding that all the gates should be shut, said to them, I have heard that ye have a certain large book in this temple; I desire you, therefore, that it may be brought before me. And when the great book, carried by four ministers of the temple, and adorned with gold and precious stones, was brought, Pilate said to them all, I adjure you by the God of your Fathers, who made and commanded this temple to be built, that ye conceal not the truth from me. Ye know all the things which are written in that book; tell me therefore now, if ye in the Scriptures have found any thing of that Jesus whom ye crucified, and at what time of the world He, ought to have come: show it me. Then having sworn Annas and Caiaphas, they commanded all the rest who were with them to go out of the chapel. And they shut the gates of the temple and of the chapel, and said to Pilate, Thou hast made us to swear, O judge, by the building of this temple, to declare to thee that which is true and right. After we had crucified Jesus, not knowing that He was the Son of God, but supposing He wrought His miracles by some magical arts, we summoned a large assembly in this temple. And when we were deliberating among one another about the miracles which Jesus had wrought, we found many witnesses of our own country, who declared that they had seen Him alive after His death, and that they heard Him discoursing with His disciples, and saw Him ascending into the height of the heavens, and entering into them; and we saw two witnesses, whose bodies Jesus raised from the dead, who told us of many strange things which Jesus did among the dead, of which we have a written account in our hands. And it is our custom annually to open this holy book before an assembly, and tosearch there for the counsel of God. And we found in the first of the seventy books, where Michael the archangel is speaking to the third son of Adam the first man, an account that after five thousand five hundred years, Christ the most beloved son of God was to come on earth, and we further considered, that perhaps He was the very God of Israel who spoke to Moses, Thou shalt make the ark of the testimony; two cubits and a half shall be the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof. By these five cubits and a half for the building of the ark of the Old Testament, we perceived and knew that in five thousand years and half (one thousand) years, Jesus Christ was to come in the ark or tabernacle of a body; and so our Scriptures testify that He is the Son of God, and the Lord and King of Israel. And because after His suffering, our chief priests were surprised at the signs which were wrought by His means, we opened that book to search all the generations down to the generation of Joseph and Mary the mother of Jesus, supposing him to be of the seed of David; and we found the account of the creation, and at what time he made the heaven and the earth, and the first man Adam, and that from thence to the flood, were two thousand seven hundred and forty-eight years. And from the flood to Abraham, nine hundred and twelve. And from Abraham to Moses, four hundred and thirty. And from Moses to David the King, five hundred and ten. And from David to the Babylonish captivity five hundred years. And from the Babylonish captivity to the incarnation of Christ, four hundred years. The sum of all which amounts to five thousand and half (a thousand.) And so it appears, that Jesus whom we crucified, is Jesus Christ the Son of God, and true Almighty God. Amen."
The evidence is just overwhelming brothers and sisters...I am not sure what more needs to be spoken or said here regarding this subject.
In closing the Lord's Supper is not Passover; Christ died on Tuesday on the 14th Day of Abib; Christ rose from the dead after 3 Days and 3 Nights on the 17th Day of the same month; and this timing was prophesied in the creation week as Adam was created in the middle of the 6th Day which signified that Christ would die on the cross, be buried, and rise from the dead 5,550 Years from Adam; and, if that weren't enough evidence then the apocryphal books of 1 Adam and Eve 3 and the Gospel of Nicodemus/Acts of Pilate 22 spell it out clearly. For those who would wish to know the reckoning of the 7,000 Years from Adam to the End of the World only need to read my blog starting from the very first post.
