ERRORS OF THE FRIDAY DEATH VIEW


    - Inadequate acknowledgement of the term 'after three days'. 

    - Failure to realize annual days of commanded rest are 'sabbaths'
      (refer Lev 23:24,32,39).

    - Too quick to assume 'Preparation' meant preparation for the
      weekly sabbath

    - For some, an incorrect understanding of how the wave sheaf
      day was determined.



ERRORS OF THE WEDNESDAY DEATH VIEW


    - Excessive emphasis upon one thought, '3 days and 3 nights'

    - Failure to adequately account for the ladies not visiting
      the tomb on the interim non-sabbath day

    - Ignoring of Luke 24:21 which states Sunday was the 3rd day

    - Forcing of the scriptures to arrive at a Saturday
      resurrection while ignoring the symbolism of the
      subsequent wave sheaf day.



COMMON MISUNDERSTANDINGS


Two issues have generated a great deal of confusion.


    - Not recognizing the existence of two different Passovers

    - The assumption that the current Jewish teaching, that
      sunset was the end of the 24 hour day, is accurate.



FINAL COMMENT


The study of the chronology of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ is
a complex but rewarding area of study.
