        So if Jesus dies on a Friday, and rose three days later, why is Sunday considered a religious holiday rather than Monday?

            It's not three days later. It's "on the third day."

That works with Podunk gods, but when you get to major gods like Thor the locals will just laugh at you and pray in secret. Because you're a monotheist this makes you crazy jealous, so you burn some of them at the stake but you also develop local color saints to give people a way to at the very least save face.
              Thank you for giving Thor the status he deserves. There are more doubters that you'd think.

                    The monument to the 14th NJ is still there. GG pappy was present at the dedication. He also was at Appomattox when the war ended.

                    If you stop at the visitor center, I believe part of the battlefield (it was yuge!) is preserved.

                      It was a serious question. Whenever I hear the story told, he was killed and three days later he's risen. That would make it Monday, not Sunday. It looks like there's a different version, based upon what Kepler wrote.

                          It's "the third day." On the first day (Friday) Christ was crucified, on the second day, I dunno, cookout?, and on the third day (Sunday) he rose.

                          Here's the text. Attend in particular to verse 3-5:

                          3 For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures,
                          4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,
                          5 and that he appeared to Cephas, and then to the Twelve.
                          I dunno why "Cephas" (a.k.a. Simon Peter, the apostle) rates. I was taught the first person to see the risen Christ was Mary Magdalene, ur-whore-with-the-heart-of-gold and, if you believe Perugini, a girl who could get a rise out of a man.

                          Anyway, it's Sunday. It's the third day, not "three days later." This is not a disputation that has a future.

                          Trust the atheist on this one.

                            Have you ever looked at a calendar and seen Easter Monday? I have. It's on my calendar at the office.

                            I never grew up with any of this stuff. The only times I was in a church were for weddings and funerals.

                              From the relevant section of the Apostles Creed
                              suffered under Pontius Pilate,
                              was crucified, died and was buried;
                              he descended into hell;
                              on the third day he rose again
                              from the dead;
                              he ascended into heaven,
                              and is seated at the right hand
                              of God the Father almighty;
                              from there he will come to judge
                              the living and the dead.
                              On Saturday he liberated all the souls who had been in "storage"(Limbo) since the Fall. He then reopened the gates of Heaven that were also closed since the Fall.

                                Are there days of the week in heaven and hell? I tend to think that when you're in either place you've passed out of time.

                                Maybe hell still has time, but heaven is the realm of God, and God is outside of time and space.
