      I don't see where it provides examples where a daytime or a night time was said to be involved with an event when no part of a daytime or no part of a night time could have occured. What do you have in mind?

        What was the “3 days and 3 nights” idiom? The rabbinic view was, “A complete or incomplete day.” Jewish Encyclopedia, v.4, p. 475 “In Jewish communal life part of a day is at times reckoned as one day; e.g., the day of the funeral, even when it takes place late in the afternoon, is counted as the 1st of the 7 days of mourning; a short time in the morning of the 7th day is counted as the 7th day; circumcision takes place on the 8th day, even though on the 1st day only a few minutes remained after the birth of the child, these being counted as oneday.” The boy was circumcised when he was more like 7 days old.



        Jerusalem Talmud Shabbath ix.3 “A day and night are as portions of time and the portion asthe whole of it.” JFB Commentary Mt.12:40 “The period He was to lie in the grave is here expressed in round numbers, according to the Jewish way of speaking, which was to regard any part of a day, however small, included within a period of days, as a full day. (ref 1Sm.30:12, 13; Est 4:16; 5:1; Mt 27:63, 64.)” 3 days and 3 nights wasn’t literally 72 hours. Again, 72 hours was inclusively “4 days ago” in Acts 10.

        hope this helped...

          I'm afraid it hasn't. Neither the link nor your comments provide examples where a daytime or a night time was said to be involved with an event when no part of a daytime or no part of a night time could have occurred. Again, why do you think that they do?


          re: "I remain more interested in the 3x3 dead or alive...when it starts counting and when it ends but do not wish to derail your thread..."

          Hence my suggestion that you start a new topic to discuss your interest.
