Did Jesus Rise on the “Third Day” or after “Three Days”?

(The following is an excerpt from my book, The Third Day Bible Code, but without footnotes.

John Lennox is a brilliant, likeable, and witty Irishman as well as a good public speaker. I also like him because he is a Plymouth Brethren—a … [Read more...]
