Rawa Wera Ratu (Very Hot Tuesday)

Ahiahi mārie (Good afternoon),

And what an afternoon it is. Very wera (hot). Which may have been mistakenly expressed as wera nui (big hot?). Opps!

Ah well, 'twas glorious anyhow.

A great day for some reading inside (with air conditioning)...

...and for hockey outside.

And a good time was had by all.

Oh, and we finished that Holy Week activity...

We caluclated the days based on the recognition that the Greek word translated as "sabbath" in Matthew 28:1 σαββατων is actually "sabbaths", that Passover (an annual "special" sabbath day - on the 14th of Nissan each year) was on the Friday (followed by the weekly sabbath day, Saturday), so Jesus must have been crucified on the Thursday. That also fits the "he rose again on the third day" of scripture (1 Corinthians 15:3). He died Thursday, rose again on the third day after his death - Friday, Saturday...the early hours of Sunday morning.
