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
It seams to me from the above quote that you are asking for examples.

Love and Peace
Dave

And you keep saying that examples aren't needed.  I'm simply asking you what examples you're saying aren't needed - examples which show what?

Hi rstrats
All I'm saying is if there are any examples and I don't know if there are they would not be needed.

Love and Peace

Wouldn't be needed for what?  I don't know why you won't answer that.

Since it's been awhile, perhaps someone new looking in 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 may know of examples.

I still would like to know - not be needed for what?

Needed to proove the word of God if we have to proove Gods word we don't believe it and if we don't believe his word we are calling God a lier

That has nothing to do with this topic.  Its only concern has to do with 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.
