Quasar,

Since you're not a 6th day of the week crucifixion advocate, you probably won't know of any writing.

No, I am a fourth day of the week, Wednesday, crucifixion advocate, as my previous post shows.  Which answers to Mt.12:40 perfectly.

Since it has again 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.

You have yet to find anything wrong with the following :

IMO, I see Mt.12:40 fulfilled in the following way:

The Hebrew day begins at sunset the day before and fulfills the prophecy:

Wednesday @ sunset = Thursday = 24 hours

Thursday @ sunset = Friday = 24 hours = Passover Sabbath

Friday @ sunset = Saturday =24 hours = seventh day Sabbath

Sunday morning, first day of the week = Jesus resurrected.

Describes Jesus in the tomb for three days and three nights, confirming Mt.12:40.

I do not subscribe to your theory in reply 48.  Matthew was the scribe who documented Jesus remark in Mt.12:40 and there are no English tranlations that give credance to it.  Check it out in the following:

Can someone please explain why which date he was crucified is relevant enough for people to get hostile over?  please...

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

Hi Stan,

If I understand what you mean; you're questioning the importance of the discussion over the day Jesus was crucified.  The reason for it is to provide support for Jesus remark of being in the belly of the earth for three days and three nights, in Mt.12:40.

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.

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

But if there are, remember that the purpose of this topic is not to discuss how long the Messiah was in the heart of the earth. 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.
