How was Jesus dead for three days if He died on Friday and rose on Sunday?

Hi! I have been struggling with the question of time frame, from the death of Jesus to the ressurrection. In Matthew 12:40 it says Jesus would be in he heart of the Earth for 3 days and 3 nights but calculation doesn’t work out. If Friday is taken as the death of Jesus and Sunday is Easter how does it work out. Could you please help.

I just got your video. Watched it and it was so helpful. In recent times I get several questions asked by my cousin brother. Thank you Abdu from the core of my heart.

I really like your responses Abdu. You make them so clear and - to me - understandable (and useable.)

Thank you

Bill
