    How does that amount to at least parts of each one of three daytimes and at least a part of each one of three night times?

    Common Figure of Speech/Colloquial Language?

    There has been one possible example given based on the idea that "three days, night or day" is the same thing as "three days and three nights". But even if it is, one example doesn't show commonality.

    Common Figure of Speech/Colloquial Language?

    I'm not aware of Him saying that it was common to forecast or say that a daytime or night time was to be involved with an event when no part of a daytime or no part of a night time could be. I thought calendar days ended at sunset and not at midnight. But at any rate, that is an issue for a...

    Common Figure of Speech/Colloquial Language?

    And again, that is an issue for a different topic. This topic is concerned with one issue and only one issue, i.e., examples which show that it was common to forecast or 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...

    Common Figure of Speech/Colloquial Language?

    And again, that's what I'm trying to do, asking anyone who thinks that the crucifixion took place on the 6th day of the week with the resurrection taking place on the 1st day of the week and who thinks that the "heart of the earth" is referring to the tomb or at the earliest to the moment when...

    Common Figure of Speech/Colloquial Language?

    That is an issue for a different topic. This one is directed to those who think that it is referring to the tomb. I don't understand your point as it regards this topic.

    I don't see how any of those will provide what folks are actually thinking. Also, I don't see where you say what you think the subject of this topic is.

    Common Figure of Speech/Colloquial Language?

    Other than asking them here, how am I suppose to find out by studying other sources what they are using to say that it was common? What exactly do you think the subject is?

    Common Figure of Speech/Colloquial Language?

    That would be an issue for a different topic. This one is only concerned with regard to anyone who thinks the "heart of the earth" is referring to the tomb.

    Common Figure of Speech/Colloquial Language?

    The Messiah said that He would be three days and three nights in the "heart of the earth". 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. And of those, there are some who think that the "heart of...

    Common Figure of Speech/Colloquial Language?

    But where was it common to count no portion of a time period, i.e., a daytime as a daytime or to count no portion of a night time as a night time?

    rakovsky, re: "Nonetheless, I'm inclined to think that it does mean the literal number of dark and light periods like you are suggesting, and that 'Heart of the Earth' is the key issue for your OP." Actually, there are three key issues, i.e., a belief in a 6th day of the week crucifixion/1st...

    rakovsky, The Esther account may be one example if "three days, night or day" means the same thing as "three days and three nights". But even if it does, one examples doesn't show common usage. As for the 1 Samuel account, nothing in it precludes at least a portion of 3 daytimes and at least...

    Common Figure of Speech/Colloquial Language?

    I am, and only one of the "charts" shows a lack of a third night, and that one is based on the assumption that the crucifixion took place on the 6th day of the week. But even if that assumption is correct - and I don't think that it is - that would only be one example. This topic is directed to...

    Common Figure of Speech/Colloquial Language?

    " 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...
