And that "someone new" needs to be someone who believes the crucifixion took place on the 6th day of the week with a 1st day of the week resurrection, and who thinks that the "heart of the earth" is referring to the tomb, and who tries to explain the lack of a 3rd night by saying that the Messiah was employing common figure of speech/colloquial language of the period.

Curtains are inexpensive. Can anyone recommend? We want to buy a new replacement.

That would be an issue for a different topic.   Maybe you could start one?

Three of the more usual explainations are:

1.  The night count started in the garden when the Messiah was arrested.

2.  The night count started during the 3 hours of darkness before the Messiah died.

3.   The Messiah was employing common figure of speech/colloquial language of the period.

In thinking about it, I realize that it doesn't make any difference with regard to sunset versus sunrise; there would still be a lack of a third night with a 6th day of the week crucifixion.

I also need to add:  "and who thinks the calendar day begins at sunset."

Apparently the future isn't here yet.

Actually, 5, 6 and 7 still need to be fulfilled.

So far it appears that no one is visiting this topic who believes the crucifixion took place on the 6th day of the week, and who thinks that the "heart of the earth" is referring to the tomb or at the earliest to the time the Messiah's spirit left His body, and who tries to explain the lack of a third night by saying He was employing common figure of speech/colloquial language.  But maybe there will be someone sometime in the future.

Quasar,
re:  "You don't have a clue as to what my intended meanings were, so don't try putting words in my mouth!"

Now I know you're just messin' with me.

re:  "rstrats, I cannot think of any examples..."

OK, no problem.  Someone new looking in may know of examples.

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?
