There’s a common confusion about the length of time that Jesus spent dead. You hear the phrase “three days” a lot, but if you sit down and look at the original story, it was barely more than one day. He died on (Good) Friday night, spent all of Saturday pushing up daisies (or harrowing Hell, depending on whose version of the story you follow), and before sun-up on (Easter) Sunday He was up and about, looking for disciples to show Himself to. I’m sticking to that timing here, not that “after three days” business.
