    Three of the more usual explanations that are given for the lack of a 3rd night with a 6th day of the week crucifixion/1st day of the week resurrection are:

    1. The count of days and nights began when the Messiah was arrested at night in the Garden.

    2. The 3 hours of darkness while the Messiah was on the cross was counted as the 1st night.

    3. The Messiah was using common figure of speech of the period when He said that three days and three nights would be involved with His time in the "heart of the earth".

    This topic is only concerned with the 3rd explanation, i.e., 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 occur.

    Perhaps someone new visiting this topic who believes the Messiah died on the 6th day of the week and who thinks He was using common figure of speech/colloquial language in Matthew 12:40 might know of examples to support the idea of commonality.
