atheist answers preferred: how long was resurrection in the bible?

I need help, an answer from someone who is not indoctrinated by religion who can see it for what it says and not what someone told them to help me with this. 

Update:

    Let me get his straight ... you want information on a particular subject ... but not from anyone who knows anything about the subject ... only from those who are ignorant of it. Do I have that right? In case you actually want some factual information, the Resurrection of Jesus has been in the Bible every since the Bible was first created by the bishops of the Catholic Church, in the mid-fourth Century.

    Religion is just a crutch for the weak minded.

    As I recollect it, 6 weeks on Earth after Jesus left the tomb before he was taken up top in the 'Ascension'. That is why Whitsun is 6 weeks after Easter.

    The Bible says that he rose from the tomb on the third day. But I always thought that was a bit of a cheat when I was growing up.  He died on Friday afternoon, and was resurrected very early on Sunday morning, so surely that was less than two days actually 'dead'?

    I'm familiar with the Bible, but I'm not certain what you're asking.

    If I had to guess, I'd say you're asking how much time passed between the Crucifixion and Resurrection of Jesus.  If so, the traditional interpretation is that the Crucifixion occurred on Friday afternoon, with Jesus dying (much sooner than expected) before sundown Friday.  

    His body was then taken down and placed in Joseph of Arimathea's tomb, where it remained until sometime shortly after dawn Sunday morning.  At which time he was resurrected.  Having spent about 36 hours "dead."

    Short answer. It never happened. So time = 0.

    Edit; same reason I know that Horus didn't resurrect from the dead and that Gandalf didn't neither. Gods are imaginary. Made up stuff.

    So let me see if i understand your logic here. You want people who don't believe in God or the Bible, to answer Bible questions for you. Really? Did you eat a lot of paint chips as a kid? if you did, that would explain why you are asking for Biblical questions from those who don't believe the Bible.
