    Discrepancy between Leviticus 23:6 and Matthew 26:17?

    Leviticus 23:6 says - "And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the Feast of Unleavened Bread..."

    Common Usage?

    The Messiah said that 3 night times would be involved with His time in the "heart of the earth".

    European Calendar

    In the United States, most Christians say that they observe Sunday, the first day of the week, at least in part, to commemorate the resurrection which they believe took place on the first day of the week.

    Mark 16:9

    Does anyone know of a published author who has used Mark 16:9 to support a first day of the week resurrection which in turn they used - at least in part - to justify the establishment of the first day of the week as a special day for rest and worship?
