A new article title "How to Count to Three" was recently written for the People's Paper in Alaska to explain the conundrum of fulfilling scriptural accounts of Jesus being dead three days and three nights and the long held Church tradition of Good Friday and resurrection Sunday. The history surrounding the celebration dates and the Council of Nicaea are discussed. Additionally, the flaws resulting from comparing Gregorian days to Jewish calendar days are also mentioned, as well as problems that arise when Christians try to justify their beliefs or traditions when Scripture clearly contradicts those viewpoints. While there is no doubt Jesus fulfilled prophecy perfectly and was dead literally three days and three nights, this truth cannot be proven or supported by current Church practices. In the end it is important for believers to decide whether or not they want to follow after truth or seek comfort in tradition. This article hopefully leads people to understand there is a difference.
