Easter Discrepancy

It is preached that on Good Friday - Christ was crucified died and buried - and then rose form the dead on Easter Sunday. He laid in the tomb for three days and three nights. That's 72 hours. This makes Good Friday totally false. If he rose from the dead on Sunday (when Mary Magdeline found the rock rolled away from the tomb entrance Sunday morning and the body of Christ gone) 72 hours before that would mean he had to be crucified on Thursday evening at the earliest and probably earlier in the day on Thursday... not Good Friday as has been preached for so long. It is very basic math. How could this slip by anybody? I believe it happened... but I think they may have the days confused. —Confused about Easter
