  2. But either way you look at it, Jesus still rose from the dead on Sunday – whether it was late at night on Saturday (already considered the First Day of the Week for the Jews, since it was after sunset), or if it was early Sunday morning, at dawn.

    So, I’m not sure what this discussion is really getting at.

      I think the point is that the Hebraic idiom preserved in the Greek text of the Gospel resurrection accounts suggests that the Gospel writers were working with older materials from a Hebrew-language milieu. In other words, they did not invent the resurrection narratives on their own.
