Good luck on the Day of Judgement,
The day of judgement is how we live our lives every day. We are the product of our genes, country, race, and culture. Our parents, siblings, and friends are our primary influence in how we turn out. Genetics has more to do with how we live than most people realize or accept. What we call "normal" are established within the society in which we live. Not that long ago, some countries still practiced cannibalism. That was their "norm." Slavery was also normal in many countries. Human wars still kill other humans, animals, and our environment. We just have to hope that future generations will outgrow these inhuman activities. There's hope, and not so much. We must strive to leave a better world for future generations.

Point #5 in post #6,652,472 should be changed to read: To account for the lack of a 3rd night, there may be some of those mentioned above who say that the Messiah was employing common figure of speech/colloquial language.

@rstrats,
Sorry, I don’t have any.
I was just blown away by the arc of the whole story.
I asked myself if I were God and wanted to create some good company, How?
Answer: This is exactly how I would do it too.

The details of days here or there - I don’t see the importance.

And that "someone new" needs to be someone who believes the crucifixion took place on the 6th day of the week with a 1st day of the week resurrection, and who thinks that the "heart of the earth" is referring to the tomb, and who tries to explain the lack of a 3rd night by saying that the Messiah was employing common figure of speech/colloquial language of the period.

@rstrats,
I totally get what you’re saying.

I would totally dump any friend who forgets the anniversary of me and my second wife. Because if they were a real friend they would Never forget it, and there is no chance in hell I’d invite them to my fourth wedding. I mean, what kind of friend is that!

Are you understanding me?

Jesus was crucified and died on August 17. This was revealed by the spirit of Ama to us. I have proven Him to be correct in His revelation.
He was crucified on Thursday. Next day was a High Sabbath Day (John 19:31). The next day is the regular weekly Sabbath of the Jews (Leviticus 25:15-16). Sunday was the Sabbath of the followers of Jesus. Monday is the discovery of the

Monday was when Mary Magdalene et al, discovered the missing body of Jesus. Use the Julian calendar in your determination. Mark 15:42 is in the Julian calendar. Same day of the week for both the Julian calendar and the Hebrew calendar.

The year when Jesus was crucified was 1 BC. Hence, what we have now as the year of reckoning of the Gregorian calendar becomes the year of crucifixion.

Houston we have a problem.

August 17 1 BC was a Monday not a Thursday.

Apart from that don't you think it most unfortunate for an imaginary being to die before it is born.

Keep up the great work.

@Leadfoot,
Not so much 'talking', Lead - COPYING, and adding the missing (Control-mechanisms).
Constantine desired vindication - Because his conscience was that of a frikkin nutjob.
He gave the NOW 'catholic-system' his blessing, because they offered him repentance, at cost. (Money buys Holy forgiveness). And
Here we are, Today.
Jesus (Immanuel) "In Full, unprescribed, context is VERY IMPORTANT! - Jesus (Immanuel) in Biblical literature - Is less so.
'CONTEXT' Matters.

After all it’s been through, it’s amazing it’s still there.

Are you an atheist? You say "an imaginary being"?

"To die before it is born". Do you know that Dionysius Exiguus calendar was implemented more than 500 years (Julian calendar) since its proposal (BC and AD)?

@Leadfoot,
The 'narrative' is a crowd-pleaser/gatherer/control - Mechanism...
And is massively out-of-context.
The findings at Qumran and Nag Hamadi (Dead Sea Scrolls & Lost Gospels) are, virtually ignored by scholars, shepherds and sheep, alike - Not wanting the applecart upset.

The gnostic gospel of Thomas is a truer impression (No Narrative) of Immanuels' personage.

Mathew - is a very badly rescribe of 'Mark'. With all the judaic-prophecies added to make the commoner submit to the prescription-based Ideal.

Just read them both side by side - 50-150 word paragraphs 97% identical - supposedly from alternate perspectives...?

Less the Xmas story and miracles, of course.
Have a lovely Day.
