Bible Discussion Thread

 
  • Jim McDaniel on Matthew 1:17
    Regarding counting, look at Christ dying on Friday and rising on Sunday equals three days. My understanding is that it was custom at that time to count any piece of a day as a full day in the counting of time. If that is true, then the generations on each end would be counted twice, once in each series.

    Further, consider that the first year A.D. is 1, not 0.

    Will some Biblical scholars confirm or correct this understanding?
