Why is 'Good Friday' a red herring?
THE ONE AND ONLY SIGN
THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS
by George and Eileen Anderson
When the Pharisees asked Jesus to authenticate his claim to being the Messiah, he promised only one sign: 'As Jonah was three days and three nights in the whale's belly, so shall the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth'.

But yes, he did fulfil his prediction - because the crucifixion was on the Wednesday. And remember, although Roman ('Gregorian') days run from midnight to midnight, God's days (and Jewish days) run from sunset to sunset. So now study the scriptural sequence of Passover Week:
Thus - at the close of the Preparation Day, Jesus was put in the tomb on our (Gregorian) Wednesday evening, the start of the High Sabbath day of Passover. The next of God's (or Jewish) days was an ordinary working day when the women were able to buy and prepare spices to anoint the body. Then came the normal weekly sabbath. At the end of that day - our Saturday evening - Jesus rose from the dead after three days and three nights.
