How Long Was Jesus in the Tomb?

"Christ predicted that he would be raised from the dead 'the third day' (Mt. 16:21). However, he also declared that he would rise 'after three days' (Mk. 8:31). To complicate the seeming difficulty, Jesus further stated that he would be in the grave 'three days and three nights' (Mt. 12:40).

Daniel’s Prophecy of Antiochus Epiphanes

"The Most High God rules the kingdom of mankind and sets over it whom he will" (Dan. 5:21, ESV). Belshazzar knew this, but he disregarded the hard-learned lesson of Nebuchadnezzar (v. 22).

The Jesus Seminar – Part 1

Recently (June 26, 2000), ABC News presented a special two-hour television program titled, In Search of Jesus, with popular broadcaster Peter Jennings as host.

In ... read more »
