Someone new looking in may know of examples.

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.

Quasar,

re:  "What difference would that make in any way to the to the recorded context?"

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?

Quasar,
re:  "And just where in the Bible do you find a calendar day was counted as a calendar day when no part of the calendar day could have taken place?"

Nowhere that I'm aware of.   And where is a night time counted as a night time when no part of a night time could have occurred?

BTW, you have a question directed to you in post #70.

Quasar,
re:  "Since you seem to be unable to do this for yourself, I will do it for you."

In order for your Jewish Encyclopedia article to be analogous to my question, it would have to show where a calendar day was counted as a calendar day when no part of the calendar day could have taken place.  It doesn't do that.



re:  "The only relevance I can find about the basis for your questioning this issue, is that you doubt what the Scriptures say about it."

Where have I done that?   To which of my posts are you referring?

Quasar,
re:  "...you aren't going to find the answer you're asking for here, since none that you have been given suits you..." 

The comments haven't "suited" me because they have been non responsive to my question.


re:  "One more time...you're going to have to put your question into a search engine and see what you get from that!"

I have and haven't found where a daytime or a night time was forecast in the first century to be involved with an event when no part of the daytime or no part of the night time could have taken place.

Quasar,
re:  "I gave you my answer to that in my previous post."

I don't see where any of your posts give examples of a daytime or a night time being forecast to be involved with an event when no part of the daytime or no part of the night time could have taken place.
 

re:  "Why don't you take the time to start doing some investigating on your own?"

I didn't make the 6th day of the week crucifixion advocates' assertion that the missing night of Matthew 12:40 can be explained by a common idiomatic use of the language of the time.   It behooves them to support their assertion with examples.

Quasar,
re:  "Go to any Jewish ministry of the Gospel and you will get your answer! "

Do you know for a fact that they show examples where a daytime or a night time was forecast to be involved with an event when no part of the daytime or no part of the night time could have occurred? 


 re:  "As I said before, they count any part of a day as a full day, in any prophecy."

Agree.  But where are there examples of them counting a daytime or a night time as a daytime or a night time when no part of the daytime and no part of the night time could have taken place?

With the new year upon us, maybe there will be someone new looking in who knows of examples as requested in the OP and clarified in further posts. And again, remember that the purpose of this topic is not to discuss how long the Messiah was in the heart of the earth. As stated, there are other topics that do that. However, there are those who say that Matthew 12:40 is using common Jewish idiomatic language. But in order to say that it was common, one would have to know of other instances where the same pattern had to have been used. I am simply looking for some of those instances, scriptural or otherwise. So far no one has come forth with any.

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.

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
