Unfortunately, that doesn't answer my question re: ramifications of your view. From my standpoint, still admitting I am not familiar with this "6th day" view, much to your chagrin, since it is well established that the resurrection occurred on the first day of the week, i.e. Sunday and the historic view of the crucifixion is that it occurred on Friday, your only choice would be to hold that the crucifixion actually occurred on Thursday. Would that be your position?

1. IF that is correct, what would be its significance vs. the historic view?

2. IF that is correct, who else besides yourself holds to this position?
