re: "This is the topic here - your 'commonality' here..."
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?
re: "https://bibletopicexpo.wordpress.com...sive-counting/ ...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.
Don't have time for more than this right now. Please listen if you can.
Poor students of the Bible incorrectly believe Jesus was crucified on a Friday and rose the following Sunday. That is not what happened.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 common 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?
