rstrats, I cannot think of any examples, but I have explored the issue that you're referring to. The bible can be interpreted either way because the writers were writing from two different vantage/sociological viewpoints. The first vantage point was from the Sadducees and the second vantage point was from the Pharisees. It deals with high holy days where one particular high holy day intersected with a Saturday sabbath. A similar issue occurs in Catholicism, which has feast days (instead of Jewish high holy days). For example, if a Catholic feast day occurs on a Thursday or a Friday, it is possible for the Catholic bishops to tell the parishioners that they are not obligated to go to the feast day on Thursday or Friday because it is so close to Sunday (or for Jews, Thursday or Friday is so close to the Saturday sabbath). It is very complicated. However, I did not give you a concrete black and white example BECAUSE the issue is so complicated. :-)

Recently I saw a powerful video by Os Guinness, who is a very renowned sociologist called, "A Free People's Suicide." With out of control immigration, immense national debt, and a people who have forgotten how we got to where we are, can the USA rebound and regain our moral and civic strength, or are we done altogether? Our framers were not perfect, but the republic they set up, and even died for, gave us a great society. Yes, there were issues like slavery, but the Constitution was hostile to that, and it eventually brought about its end. This is a must watch!

The Constitution was designed for a moral people and it will not work if a majority of the population is not moral.

For the first 150 years of the United States, annual taxes (per person) was between 1 and 3 percent of their salary. Now it's around 25%, although President Trump has a dream to lower it down to 15% (which has not happened yet).

Lastly, at the academic level in sociology, Marxism is being pushed and taught. It is the antithesis of the Constitution. Thank goodness the Lord anointed Trump to be president because he is a wrecking ball to political correctness.

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?

Thank you for posting this.   An incredible lecture that should be required viewing in our public schools!

I remember you being KevinGaily (sp), but I don't see your old account on the administrative screen.   Not sure what happened, but it might have been an auto purge for people who haven't logged in for a long time.

I apologize....I guess you can remake an account with your old name.

Hi John! Hope you are well my brother! What's new? I went back to college (second degree/completion) and am now teaching. My major is still Bible, but I am branching out and teaching in a local Christian K-8 grade school. I can sign into my old account, if it still exists, lol, if I could remember it. :P

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
