Explain how Jesus was in the tomb 3 days & 3 nights.
Explain how Jesus was in the tomb 3 days & 3 nights. There is a reference to this in Matthew 12. It appears Jesus was not in the tomb three nights. There is a major misconception that the "heart of the earth" called "the tomb." I believe the heart of the earth speaks of being in the clutches of the world. Jesus started suffering for the sins of the world in the Garden of Gethsemane.
