Good Wednesday or Good Friday?
#62
Interestingly enough, with some info sent me by a friend and through some searches here I have been able to somewhat confirm that indeed orowta/arubtha/etc. (in Mark 15:42) is cognate to Hebrew erev, as I was told before. If that premise is true, logically it can be held that Arubtha doesn't literally mean "preparation", but perhaps "sunset/darkness/evening" instead. As a name for an entire day of the week, Erev/Arubtha is literally untrue. It's therefore reasonable to suppose it's most likely a cultural or religious term. Thanks konway87 and Paul Younan! Your inputs were most helpful. <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/smile.gif" alt="Smile" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->

Now that I feel there is a reliably firm basis for holding Arubtha as a figurative/metaphoric name, there also comes the inevitable question as to the actual meaning and origin of applying the term to Weekday 6 (English Friday).

=====

Dear Paul,

If I recall correctly, you offered an explanation for the above question. I think that it consisted largely of relating a belief that labeling Weekday 6 as Arubtha is an intentional reference, by Aramaic Christians, to the blotting of the sun on Crucifixion day. The manner in which you conveyed the information led me to suppose you were relating a CoE traditional belief. Please confirm whether this is so.
