Actually, 5, 6 and 7 still need to be fulfilled.

So far it appears that no one is visiting this topic who believes the crucifixion took place on the 6th day of the week, and who thinks that the "heart of the earth" is referring to the tomb or at the earliest to the time the Messiah's spirit left His body, and who tries to explain the lack of a third night by saying He was employing common figure of speech/colloquial language.  But maybe there will be someone sometime in the future.

Quasar,
re:  "You don't have a clue as to what my intended meanings were, so don't try putting words in my mouth!"

Now I know you're just messin' with me.

re:  "rstrats, I cannot think of any examples..."

OK, no problem.  Someone new looking in may know of examples.

1. The Messiah said that three nights would be involved with His time in the "heart of the earth".

2. There are some who believe that the crucifixion took place on the 6th day of the week with the resurrection taking place on the 1st day of the week.

3. Of those, there are some who believe that the "heart of the earth" is referring to the tomb.

4. However, those two beliefs allow for only 2 nights to be involved.

5. To account for the discrepancy, some of the above say that the Messiah was using common figure of speech/colloquial language of the time, i.e., that it is was common to forecast or say that a day or a night would be involved with an event when no part of the day or no part of the night could occur.

6. In order for someone to legitimately say that it was common, they would have to know of more that 1 example to make that assertion.

I am simply asking if anyone knows of examples to support the idea of commonality?

Quasar,
re:  "The sixth day is Friday, which has been proven to be in error AS THE DAY OF JESUS CRUCIFIXION!"

That may be what you meant, but that is not what you wrote.  I'm not a mind reader.

Perhaps someone new looking in will know of some writing.

Quasar,
re:  "How come you don't seem to remember what you posted from one day to the next?"

I remember perfectly. You seem to be the one that can't remember what you said.  In your post #77 you wrote:  "The sixth day of the week is Friday, which has been shown to be in error..."
Again, you say that Friday is the sixth day of the week and then certainly seem to say that that designation has been shown to be in error i.e., that Friday is not a designation for the 6th day of the week.  That sure sounds contradictory to me.  Plus it has nothing to do with the purpose of this topic.

Quasar,
re:  ".  I have never said that the sixth day was the day Jesus was crucified."

And I have never said that you have.  I don't know where you get that idea.



re: "I suggest you review the way you go about obtaining support for your belief Jesus was not crucified and died on the sixth day, i.e. ay!  The proof you want has already been posted on this thread."

For the purpose of this topic, the only proof I'm looking for is whether or not it was common to forecast a daytime or a night time being involved with an event when at least a part of the daytime or at least a part of the night time couldn't have taken place. I've checked out all of the above posts and none of them provide any such proof.

Quasar,
re: "The sixth day of the week is Friday, which has been shown to be in error..."

I don't understand.  First you assert that Friday is the 6th day of the week and then in the same sentence say that it isn't.  What am I missing?



re:  "When the time comes when you believe the answer to your OP has been produced to your satisfaction, to what means will it achieve for you?"

It will simply let me know that in the first century it was common to forecast a daytime or a night time being involved with an event when no part of the daytime or no part of the night time could have taken place. 



re:  "To what effect are you placing on it that has any Scriptural significance to it at all?"

It would take away one of the defenses against a 6th day of the week crucifixion.

None whatsoever.

Quasar,
re:  "FYI, you will not obtain any better response to your questions than what you have received..."

So far it looks that way.  There have been zero applicable replies.



re:  "Just what do you mean by the 'sixth day crucifixion folks', in the OP?"

Those who believe that the crucifixion took place on the 6th day of the week.

Quasar,
re:  "In order for you to find the answers to your questions on this issue, it will be necessary to understand the ancient Hebrew way of determining their day and night time definitions, such as the following:"

There is only one topic question:  "What examples from the first century or before are there which show that it was common to forecast a daytime or a night time being involved with an event when no part of the daytime or no part of the night time could actually have occurred?"  To that end I don't see where your comments or links provide the requested examples.



re:  "Re your question in post #70:  Are you not questioning the viability of the written word?" 

Absolutely not.  Specifically what have I written that could give you that idea?

Forgiveness is available until we get to eternity and then our eternal fate is sealed. Right now, people are free to sin and repent; but there is no forgiveness of sin for the damned in hell.

JUST A THINK ABOUT IT: Will you embrace the full meaning of Christmas? Jesus didn't die just so you could go to heaven. He came to give you life - His life; an abundant life free from guilt, condemnation, and slavery to both sins and religion. He came to bring a grace revolution to the world and tha
