SDA DOCTRINAL AMBIGUITY ON THE RESURRECTION

"He took a Sabbath rest in the grave. Then He rose again the next day to triumphantly sit on His throne at the right hand of the Father (Hebrews 1:3)". Retrieved from

In an era of doctrinal confusion, Adventism does not make apparent every doctrine of Jesus to someone who seeks an exact answer on questions of doctrines, except for the sabbath. They embellish the deceit. You must be an educated believer in Jesus to get what Adventism is teaching.

Case and point: on what day was Jesus risen? Well, Jesus took a Sabbath rest in the grave, according to Adventism (Reference to the criticism of the doctrines of Adventism is taken from and is published on their website)! What does that statement tell someone who wrongly believes that Sunday is the Christian Sabbath? Jesus was risen on a Monday?

On what day was Jesus risen according to the Greek manuscripts? On the first of the Sabbaths, which is a Saturday, according to Matthew 28:1 YOUNG, LITV, not KJV, 'after three days and three nights in the heart of the earth'.

SDA RESURRECTION DAY STATEMENT: Jesus took a sabbath rest in the grave?!

He took a Sabbath rest in the grave. Then He rose again the next day to triumphantly sit on His throne at the right hand of the Father (Hebrews 1:3). Seventh Day Adventism. 

Matthew 28:1 YLT
(1)  And on the eve of the sabbaths, at the dawn, toward the first of the sabbaths, came Mary the Magdalene, and the other Mary, to see the sepulchre,

Matthew 28:1 LITV
(1)  But late in the sabbaths, at the dawning into the first of the sabbaths, Mary the Magdalene and the other Mary came to gaze upon the grave.

Matthew 28:1 KJV
(1)  In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.

Adventism hides behind a caption of Matthew 28:1 to not plainly state its position on major doctrinal rifts.
