Easter Conundrum:
Three Days, Three Nights?

One of Christianity’s many internal contradictions is as follows:

Jesus supposedly said he would be in the tomb for “three days and three nights,” yet most Christians accept without question the story that he died on a Friday afternoon and rose on the following Sunday morning.

I was surprised to find this afternoon that at least one subdivision of the Jesus cult has found an ingenious way around this difficulty.  The United Church of God (an offshoot of the sect founded by Herbert W. Armstrong) argues that Jesus died on a Wednesday afternoon (just before Passover) and rose on a Saturday afternoon.  I do not recommend any of the subdivisions of the Jesus cult, but this one has at least managed to construct an intelligent argument.
