Hi rstrats
Thank you for your post

   Dose this help

    Joh 11:9 Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world   


No, because it doesn't include actual examples which show that it was common to say 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.       

I take it you are asking me for examples to prove the words of Christ.
I believe the Bible is the words of God and not the words of man and cannot be changed.

Love and Peace
Dave

No.  I'm asking for examples which show that it was common in the first century to forecast or say 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 occur.

Hi rstrats
When our Lord says there are 12 hours in the day then there are 12 hours in the day we should not need examples.

The Jewish day began at sundown          

Christ placed in the tomb in the daylight hours day 1
Sat began at sun down night 1
At sun rise day 2 began    
At sunset night 2 began
At sun rise day 3 began
At sunset night 3 began

Night 3 would be our Sunday night  our Lord rose very early from the dead on Monday morning so when the women came to the tomb on Monday morning Christ had risen

So our Lord was in the tomb 3 days and 3 nights

Love and Peace
Dave

Either you're just messing with me, or in the immortal words of Struther Martin, "what we have here is a failure to communicate".

In your post #90 you wrote - "...we should not need examples".  Not need examples which show what?

Hi rstrats
We don't need examples because we have the words of Christ which are

    Jesus answered, ?Are there not twelve hours in the day? If anyone walks in the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world.
John 11:9 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/jhn.11.9.ESV     


He also said

  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
https://bible.com/bible/59/mat.12.40.ESV       


This can only mean 3 12 hour daylight times and 3 12 hour night times

Love and Peace
Dave

We don't need examples


And again, we don't need examples of what?  What are the examples which aren't needed?
