A Saturday, and A Sunday, that Shouldn’t be Skipped

Dr. McGrath writes,

In the case of the latter, where you think Jesus was on that Saturday nearly 2,000 years ago provides indication of how you think not only about the afterlife but also about human nature in general.

Exploring Our Matrix: A Saturday that Shouldn’t be Skipped.

So too this day, Sunday.

  1. I had always thought that Jesus was in Heaven.

    Jesus answered him, “I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise.” Luke 23:43 (NIV)

    So was Jesus in Heaven, Hell, Heaven in Hell, or somewhere else?

    1. I think that Paradise is something different than what we would think of as Heaven.

      Further, in 1st Peter 3, Christ is – translation is difficult – to have descended into the Grave.

    1. Good question. Since the Sabbath ended on our Saturday evening, meaning that the First Day of the week, our Sunday, started then, I dunno, but He wasn’t discovered until Sunday morning. For me, this is where we must have faith. Yes, there was a Historical Jesus who lived and died, but the Living and Risen Christ, the one that I know by Faith, was discovered on Sunday.
