Understand the history and the OT is one thing, practicing is another. Many things were a shadow of things to come. Paul is clear on many things.
I agree whole-heartedly on this. Jesus made it clear as well that the Pharisees were applying the letter of the Law and ignoring the Spirit of the Law. We, on the other hand, are able, and certainly willing with the help of the Holy Spirit, to keep the Spirit of the Law knowing full well we are not able to keep the letter of the Law. The new wine in new bottles.
Also, about Eusebius' "Hence there were synods and convocations of the bishops on this question; and all unanimously drew up the ecclesiastical decree, which they communicated to all the churches in all places, that the mystery of our Lords resurrection should be celebrated on no other day than the Lords day."
Sounds like typical Catholic Pomp and Circumstance for something that no where in Scripture are we asked or commanded to celebrate the "Lord's Day". The Sabbath is for rest not worship, except in the sense that resting on the Sabbath is honoring YHWH who made it. The simplest proof that God exists is that there are seven days in a week, the seventh being created because He rested on it. I don't know of any other religion that tells of their god creating time. There may be, I just have not heard of it. I feel I must apologize for my negativity toward the catholic church, I have been very cynical towards it for a very long time and learning to forgive that I felt I was led astray, however unintentionally by my teachers, has been difficult. I know now that we all, at one time, had a veil before our eyes until our Heavenly Father removed it, called us, to follow His Son Jesus. "The hearing ear and the seeing eye, The LORD has made both of them." Prov. 20:12
witness1 As Matt 27:45-50 shows, Jesus died about the ninth hour, or 3 o'clock in the afternoon. So there certainly is some leeway in the time frame for 3.5 days and still be 3 days and 3 nights.
