Religion & Theology / Re: Three Days and Three Nights

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.

There are other topics that do that.  However, there are those who say that Matthew 12:40 is using common Jewish idiomatic language such as the Messiah saying that He would be in the heart of the earth for 3 nights when He knew that it would only be for 2 nights.   But in order to say that it was common, one would have to know of other instances where the same pattern was used. I am simply looking for some of those instances, scriptural or otherwise. So far no one has come forth with any.

It appears that there are no 6th day of the week crucifixion advocates looking in on this topic.

Since it has been awhile, perhaps someone new looking in who thinks the crucifixion took place on the 6th day of the week and who thinks Matthew 12:40 is using common Jewish idiomatic language where 3 nights actually means 2 nights, and who thinks that the "heart of the earth" is referring to the tomb, will know of some writing.

Perhaps a further rewording of the OP will make it a bit more clear:   Whenever the three days and three nights of Matthew 12:40 is brought up in a "discussion" with 6th day of the week crucifixion folks, they frequently assert that it is using common Jewish idiomatic language.  I wonder if anyone knows of any writing that shows an example from the first century or before regarding a period of time that is said to consist of a specific number of days and/or a specific number of nights where the period of time absolutely couldn't have included at least a part of each one of the specific number of days and at least a part of each one of the specific number of nights?  If it is using common idiomatic language, there ought to be examples of that usage in order to be able to make that assertion.

Let's say it had been a Thursday when Cornelius said - "Four days ago I was fasting until this hour...".  To what day of the week would he have been referring if he had said "One day ago I was fasting until this hour"?

Stan,
re:  "Can someone please explain why which date he was crucified is relevant..."


If you're referring to this topic, I don't think anything has been mentioned with regard to the date of the crucifixion.

What "theory" is in reply 48?

re:  "You have yet to find anything wrong with the following : IMO, I see Mt.12:40 fulfilled in the following way:"


That's an issue for another topic.

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
