I suppose, since I became a Christian (born again July 31, 1975), I have heard a lot of different opinions concerning different areas and events of the Bible. Of all the topics and points of interest, none has intrigued me as much as the Death, Burial, and Resurrection of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. As you read this study there is one main point that all Christians will agree on. It may not be the day of the week or the hour of the day Jesus died, but we will all agree to the fact that Jesus did arise from the dead and is currently at the right hand of God the Father.

It was when Peter and John got to the tomb, and seeing the grave clothes and the head wrap, lying there where Jesus had lain, that in a brief span of time the Holy Ghost revealed to John the things concerning the current events, that Jesus was alive and risen forevermore and he believed. John 20:8(KJV)

I truly believe that if you study the scriptures referenced here you will concur that Jesus was crucified on Wednesday afternoon, and arose on Saturday afternoon. The witness of the resurrection and the visual body of Jesus was seen and recorded in each of the four gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.

I trust that you may truly believe the word of God is the infallible, inerrent, inspired, word of God..
