‘Adulterous generation’ fails to believe the Savior’s words

Written by  Staff Writer

To the editor,
In Mattithyah 12:39-40, we are told, “ ... An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Yahnah: For just as Yahnah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fist, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.”

From all accounts of Yahshua’s death and burial we learn that the Saviour died after three o’clock in the afternoon and was buried that same day, before Sunday. Accordingly, being buried before sundown we may expect he would rise up again, before sundown, after a full three nights and three days — just like he said — not a moment earlier, not a moment later than 72 hours.

This is the way it was understood by the chief priests, for it says in Mattithyah 27:62-62, “Now on the day following the preparation day, the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered together with Pilate and said, ‘Sir, we remember that when he was still alive, that deceiver said ‘After three days I am to rise again.’”

Yet we find virtually all the Orthodox Christian churches are worshipping a Saviour who died on “Good Friday” afternoon, was buried before sundown and was raised up again early the following Sunday morning, after only Friday night and Saturday “day and night,” a mere 36 hours in the grave.

How adulterous is this generation that they will not believe the Saviour’s own words?
