comment How is it that Jesus could be “three days and three nights in the heart of the earth”?
But Mathew 28:1 starts as "After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week", so I feel credence to this line of argument that there was 'special Sabbath" and a 'normal sabbath', thus two continuous days of rest. Mathew avoids the use of the word, on the day of Sabbath in Mathew 27:62, but gives an explanation to the day where as he dont have this problem for Mathew 28:1 says it was a Sunday.

John 19:31 "Now it was the day of Preparation, and the next day was to be a special Sabbath. ".. I could see a word special sabbath in NIV and HCSB, may indicate a sabbath different from normal sabbath (friday evening to Saturday evening) . Also Mathew 27:62 "The next day, the one after Preparation Day, the chief priests and the Pharisees went to Pilate". Matthew does not mention as Sabbath, but as " the one after Preparation Day".
