Three of the more usual explainations are:

1.  The night count started in the garden when the Messiah was arrested.

2.  The night count started during the 3 hours of darkness before the Messiah died.

3.   The Messiah was employing common figure of speech/colloquial language of the period.

In thinking about it, I realize that it doesn't make any difference with regard to sunset versus sunrise; there would still be a lack of a third night with a 6th day of the week crucifixion.

I also need to add:  "and who thinks the calendar day begins at sunset."

The use of the expression "Abraham's bosom," was part of a parable/illustration given by Jesus.  Specifically, the parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus.

"Abraham's bosom" is a term similar to Abel's blood "crying out from the ground." Neither term is to be taken literally. The first term is one of endearment.

To answer the question that is the title of your thread: "What happens when a person dies," based upon scripture, the dead remain unconscious until such time they are resurrected.

When this atheist-writer died, this writer found himself conscious and at the entrance of hell. When you die, you too will be conscious, either in heaven or in hell.

Your post gave me a lot of information.

All of that happened under the Obama administration. Maj. Nidal Hasan was sentenced to death. Not sure what the final outcome was.

I challenge the popular one that says you go to Abrahams bosom.. without an exit plan.
