Here is what you posted -- " Do you account for the lack of a 3rd night by saying that the Messiah was using common figure of speech/colloquial language?For once, just once, I would like to keep a topic on topic. An answer to your question "What difference does it make?" has absolutely nothing to do with being able to provide examples.
And as what is so often the case, any answer I might give could very likely cause the start of a new topic thus derailing this one.
Does it really make a difference? Is it conducive to the purpose of Jesus instructions for you to be that person of Christ that God sent Jesus for us to be like?
These technical difficulties presented as in days weeks or months mean noting to God, What matters is for you to be like Him. Why waste time arguing about hours, days months when the focus should be on what Jesus presented that you should be like him?
If you see the need to prove a day then you will find plenty of different opinions and arguments about it -- I just do not see the time wanted for something that doesnt matter at all is all.
Perhaps if you think it is expedient for salvation then explain why.
