Other questions and answers have established that Jesus may have actually died on a Wednesday rather than a Friday.

Have any Christians other than the United Church of God reached the Wednesday conclusion, so to speak?

    Time is treated differently in the acient world. 3 days does not mean 72 hours or in some cases a day means a period of time. I personally have no problem if Christ died and was burried 2.25 days and the Gospel writers exagerated the event a little. The few hours missing from thier report does not take away from the event.

  • It seems to me that to deny that He was in the grave for 3 full days and nights when He said He would be is to deny the only sign that He said He was giving.

The Bible does not say on which day of the week Jesus was crucified. There are therefore three views of crucifixion day held currently: Wednesday, Thursday and Friday with Friday being the most commonly held view. Some Christians believe Wednesday was the day of Jesus crucifixion , and a few held the Thursday view.

That said, beside United Church of GodIA, the Restored Church of God also denies the 'Good Friday-Easter Sunday' chronology along with other Christian scholars of note (and presumably their followers) among whom are: Grady Daniel, and a Baptist deacon; late Charles Halff, a Messianic; and Roy A. Reinhold. This site gives an elaborate and informitive support of Wednesday conclution.
