davetaff,
re:  "If I have to prove the words of our Lord then it means I don't believe what my Lord has said which would make me an unbeliever."

That would be an issue for a different topic.  This one is concerned with one issue and only one issue.

Perhaps someone new looking in may know of examples.

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.

 For just as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
Matthew 12:40 ESV

From the lips of our Lord so thats what happened its not negotiable




That would be an issue for a different topic.

Why

Because this topic is concerned with one issue and only one issue - i.e., the commonality of saying that a daytime or a night time would be involved with an event when no part of a daytime or no part of a night time could be.

Hi rstrats
Thank you for your reply I cant see that it matters what do matter is the words of our Lord which are

    For just as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
Matthew 12:40 ESV     


So our Lord was in the grave 3 days and 3 nights this should ettle the matter

Love and Peace
Dave

It doesn't matter one whit in the grand scheme of things. I am simply curious.

And again, that's an issue for a different topic.  Perhaps you could start one.
