024:001 Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning,
        they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they
        had prepared, and certain others with them.

024:002 And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.

024:003 And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.

Clearly the resurrection - which was on a Sunday - was on the first day of
the week. [From context it's clear that the cruxifiction was the day before
the sabbath, which makes it a Friday.]
