Discussion for John 20:26

  • James Kirby for verse 26
    By Biblical reckoning of counting days this second appearance of the risen Messiah took place on a Monday... not on Sunday. The word -After- means you start counting -after- the first day He appeared which was a Sunday. For the proper way to understand -after- see Leviticus 23:16. You start counting the 50 days -after- the Sabbath, which means you start on the next day which was a Sunday and that lands you on Sunday... 50 days -after- a Sabbath, which was a Saturday. Therefore we start counting the 8 days the day -after- the first appearance, which was a Sunday and we end up on a Monday.
