  1. Matthew 12:40

    But maybe someone new looking in will know of examples to support their belief that the Messiah was employing common figure of speech/colloquial language.
  2. Matthew 12:40

    Invicta, re: "I don't need any examples I just need the bible." I realize that you don't need examples since you're not a believer in a 6th day of the week crucifixion. re: "But you can give them if you wish." I wish I could, but so far no one has provided any.

  4. Matthew 12:40

    Since it has again been awhile, someone new looking in who thinks that the crucifixion took place on the 6th day of the week, and who tries to get around Matthew 12:40 by saying that it is using common Jewish idiomatic/figure of speech/colloquial language may know of some writing as requested in the OP.

    Ukulelemike, re: "What, exactly, are you looking for...? The Messiah said that 3 night times would be involved with His time in the "heart of the earth". However, there are some who believe that the Messiah died on the 6th day of the week and resurrected on the first day of the week and who think that the "heart of the earth" is referring to the tomb. But this period allows for only 2 night times to be involved. To reconcile this discrepancy some say that the Messiah was using common Jewish idiomatic language. I am simply asking for examples to support that assertion; i.e., instances where a daytime or a night time was forecast to be involved with an event when no part of the daytime or no part of the night time could have occurred. This topic is essentially directed to any folks who think that it was common at the time to say that a daytime or a night time would be involved with an event when no part of the daytime or no part of the night time could have taken place. I'm simply looking for examples to support it's commonality.

  11. Matthew 12:40

    Whenever the three days and three nights of Matthew 12:40 is brought up in a "discussion" with 6th day crucifixion folks, they frequently argue that it is a Jewish idiom for counting any part of a day as a whole day. I wonder if anyone has documentation 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 as well as a specific number of nights where the period of time absolutey doesn't/can't include 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?
