Religion & Theology / Common Figure of Speech/Colloquial Language?
« Last post by rstrats on August 30, 2021, 04:50:46 PM »
There are some folks who think that the crucifixion took place on the 6th day of the week with the resurrection taking place on the 1st day of the week. The Messiah said that He would be in the "heart of the earth" for 3 days and 3 nights (Matthew 12:40).   Of those who think that the crucifixion took place on the 6th day of the week, there are some who think that the "heart of the earth" is referring to the tomb.  However, a 6th day of the week crucifixion/1st day of the week resurrection allows for only 2 nights to be involved with the Messiah's time in the tomb.   To account for the lack of a 3rd night, there may be some of those mentioned above who try to explain the lack of a 3rd night by saying that the Messiah was using common figure of speech/colloquial language. And that is the only issue of this topic, i.e., the commonality of saying that a daytime or a night time was forecast or said to be involved with an event when no part of a daytime or no part of a night time could have occurred. I'm simply asking anyone who may fall in the above group of believers if they might provide actual examples/instances to support the belief of commonality.

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?

Here is another video about what makes the USA exceptional. This is the kind of stuff kids should be taught in schools then we wouldn't have so many of the issues we have today.

Content writing is the same standard used to read it all the time, great visual appeal.

I get a ton of them sending non-sensical stuff to the "Ask a Question" feature on my church's website.   What are they hoping to accomplish?
