    " I'm afraid it doesn't. The issue of the link deals with the meaning of "heart of the earth". However, the issue of this topic 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 time could occur...

    Yes, plus a portion of the daytime of the 4th day of the week as well as at least a portion of the night time of the 1st day of the week.

    A 4th day of the week crucifixion/1st day of the week resurrection would involve 5 calendar days and at least portions of 4 daytimes and at least portions of 4 night times.

    Actually, the verses which speak of the tomb being empty when the women arrive only say that it was empty. The don't say when it became empty. Only Mark 16:9 - as it is translated in the KJV and similar versions - says that it was on the first of the week, and even that verse is questionable as...

    Assuming that the "heart of the earth" was referring to the tomb and that He actually meant with His prophesy that He would spend at least a portion of each one of three daytimes and at least a portion of each one of three night times there, I think a case for that might reasonably be made...

    Three Curtains

    What would you do if after your pick of curtain #1 - and before any curtains were opened - the host told you that you switch your choice to both curtains #2 and #3?

    Sin is not the separation from the supreme being; the separation is the result of sin. Sin itself is lawlessness (1 John 3:4).

    So He is without separation from Himself.

    Except for the sign of Jonah. You seem to be saying that it doesn't matter if the Messiah spent the 3 days and 3 nights in the heart of the earth or not.

    A simulation with a proper sample size will show that a switch should be made, but it may not provide an understanding of why that is the case.

    Well, when asked by the scribes and Pharisees for a sign of his authority, the Messiah said that the only sign would be His time in the "heart of the earth" for three days AND three nights. So if He didn't spend that amount of time, it seems that He would not qualify.

    I'm not. This topic is directed to anyone who believes the crucifixion took place on the 6th day of the week. A belief in a 4th day of the week crucifixion is an issue for a different topic.

    Three Curtains

    You are a contestant on a game show. There are three curtains. Behind one of the curtains is a new car. You are asked to choose one of the curtains. Lets say that you choose curtain #1. The host of the show - who knows where the car is so as not to end the game prematurely - opens curtain #3 and...
