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 that a phrase stating a certain number of days, as well as a certain number of nights was ever used in the first century or before when it absolutely didn’t include at least parts of the specified number of days and at least parts of the specified number of nights?

@rstrats,
Perhaps someone new looking in will know of some writing.

@Setanta,
Setanta,

re: "Nobody gives a sh*t."

I'm afraid I don't see how that comment is responsive to the question in the OP. I wonder if you might elaborate a bit?

Since it has again been awhile, hopefully someone new looking in will know of some writing.

@rstrats,
I probably should have addressed the OP to those who think that the crucifixion took place on the 6th day of the week.

@rstrats,
I think if it's still bothering you after four months, you should maybe take a trip to Hawaii, get yourself a two girl massage, sink a few Mai Tais, eat some swordfish, wash it down with a cold beer or two... and if it still bothers you when you get home, go and see a wig mechanic.

@Lordyaswas,
What the heck is wrong with you people? If you're just going to mock religious questions, why even have a religion category?

So that we can let the rest of the world have a break from it all for a minute or two.

@rstrats,
Perhaps a rewording of the OP may help:

1. The Messiah said that He would be three days and three nights in the "heart of the earth".

2. There are some who think that the crucifixion took place on the 6th day of the week with the resurrection taking place on the 1st day of the week.

3. And of those, there are some who think that the "heart of the earth" is referring to the tomb or at the earliest to the moment when His spirit left His body).

4. However, a 6th day of the week crucifixion/1st day of the week resurrection allows for only 2 nights to be involved.

5. To account for the lack of a 3rd night, there may be some of those mentioned above who try to explain the lack of a 3rd night by saying that the Messiah was using common figure of speech/colloquial language.

6. I'm simply curious if anyone who may fall in the above group of believers might provide examples to support the belief of commonality; i.e., instances where a daytime or a night time was forecast or said to be involved with an event when no part of a daytime or no part of a night time could have occurred.

@rstrats,
Perhaps that Sign is only there for people who want to recognize it. Jonah never died all three days and nights.... So perhaps Jesus was not dead all three days and nights as well. People want to argue points of faith and I don't understand why.

Well, we know according to the creation that first there was darkness, and light came from that darkness and that was the first day.

The Jewish day began at sunset and their 24 hour day consisted of 12 hours of Darkness followed by 12 hours of Light, and we know also that Jesus was buried late in the afternoon of the day of preparation to the Passover, and that was the evening of Thursday, which was the beginning of the 15th day of Nisan, the first of the seven day festival of Unleavened Bread and a Most Holy Sabbath on which no work could be done. And the women who had followed Jesus, were unable to go out and buy the hundreds of kilo's of Herbs needed for his tomb that day.

Jesus remained in the tomb all Thursday night and Thursday, Friday night and the following Friday, when the women were able to go out and purchase the Herbs and spices that they needed, and to prepare them for the tomb, which would have taken them most of Friday, and as Saturday night was approaching, they were forced to rest, until Sunday morning the day after the weekly Sabbath, only to find the tome empty.

Jesus had remained in that tomb, Thursday night and Thursday, one night and one day. Friday night, (night 2) and Friday, (day 2,) Saturday night, (night 3) and all day Saturday, (day three,) then early in the evening of Sunday, Jjesus left the tomb, and when the women arrived in the darkness of the last hour of Sunday night, before the sun had risen, they found the tomb empty.

@RMorris326,
It's meant to be a tie-in, in any case.
Just as Isaac, and the sacrifice of the firstborn son.

And nowhere is it said that Jonah was dead for three days, 'BUT', instead; "Just as Jonah was in side the big fish for three days so too will the Son of Man, be in the bowels of the earth for three days and three nights".

In 1933 a sulfur bottom whale (Blue Whale) was caught off the coast of cape cod it was 100 ft long and had a mouth over 10 foot wide. A man who was unfortunate enough to be swallowed could take refuge in any one of the whales stomach chambers, or the large cranial cavities (extensions of the nasal sinus) which measure 7 feet high, 7ft wide and 14 ft long. More than big enough for a man to hide safely inside.
