Since it's again been awhile, someone new looking in may know of some writing.

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.  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 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.

Without going back over the thread. I think it is fair to say that Christ suffered over three nights and three days.

His suffering began on the Thursday when he was arrested.
In the Hebrew day it began at dawn and ended at sundown.
Jesus suffering started Thursday night and it went through Friday and Saturday too. He was raised Sunday morning.  So three nights three days rising the the third day.

admin,
re:  "Jesus suffering started Thursday night and it went through Friday and Saturday too. He was raised Sunday morning.  So three nights three days rising the the third day."


That scenario would involve at least parts of 4 night times.

It appears that there are no folks visiting this site who think that the crucifixion took place on the 6th day of the week.

With another new year, maybe someone new looking in will know 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 some who say that Matthew 12:40 is using common Jewish idiomatic language to try to explain the missing 3rd night, which would have to be the case with a 6th day of the week crucifixion/1st day of the week resurrection. But in order to legitimately say that it was employing common, idiomatic/figure of speech/colloquial language, one would have to know of other instances where a daytime or a night time was predicted to be involved with an event when no part of the daytime or no part of the night time could occur.  I am simply looking for some of those instances, scriptural or otherwise.
