Religion & Theology / Re: Three Days and Three Nights

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

Christian Music / Nearer My God to Thee
« Last post by Zaph on October 11, 2015, 11:15:45 AM »
The older I get it seems that music moves me more. This is a wonderful rendition of the hymn "Nearer My God to Thee". Without a word spoken you seem to be drawn nearer to God. It appears in the video that others felt the same even if they didn't know what was going on.

Can you even start to imagine what it'll be like one day very soon when we can participate in a scene like this in person before our wonderful and merciful God?

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.

Here is an interesting chart that shows the progress of various kinds of fuels:

IMO hydropower as a fuel source is the next big energy boom, particularly learning how to harness the power of the ocean ie:
- harnessing the power of horizontal inflow and outflow
- harnessing the power of vertical (up and down) action of oceanic waters.
The U.S. Navy is testing it in Hawaii right now.

I'm not a scientist but this seems like a bunch of nonsense. They talk about HHO gas. What is that? H2O. Which we all know is water and what is water in the form of gas? It's called steam!  I seriously doubt that too many gas engines would run very long on steam.

With all the tree huggers out there if this were true it would be trumpeted from all the mountain tops around the world. Not even the oil companies could pay enough to keep their mouths shut.

Agreed! However, here is another unbelievable development is technology to clean-up polluted water and polluted soils:

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.

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
