And remember, 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 exclusively 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

Hi rstrats
Should we be questioning the words of our Lord Jesus Christ  which are

       Mat 12:40 For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth   

We must believe not question.

Love and Peace
Dave

Dave,
        Have just seen this comment " We must believe not question ."

Unfortunately just have faith I'd not taught in the bible.
We have Jesus arguing, debating and proving from scripture, strangely  he never ask for just faith/belief.

Yes we have to believe  but as Hebrews 11 teaches us it is a reasonable faith.

Questioning? Well if one doesn't  understand as,ing questions is a good way to learn.
The proviso is that we are will8hg to accept answers

The thing is that it has nothing to do with this topic.

Hi rstrats
Thanks for your reply but I disagree we must believe Gods word even when we don't understand it his word is truth and we must believe the truth if we question Gods word we don't believe it.

Love and Peace
Dave
