Three Days and Three Nights

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 Jewish idiom for counting any part of a day as a whole day. I wonder if anyone has documentation that shows that the phrase “x” days and “x”nights was ever used in the first century or before when it didn’t include at least parts of the “x” days and at least parts of the “x” nights?

The way you worded this makes me suspect you don't believe the crucifixion was on a Friday. It this correct? If so, I agee with you and even started a thread on this subject.

That would be correct.

Since it's been awhile, perhaps someone new looking in will know of some documentation.

The Crucifixion was on a Wednesday.

The Church's Good Friday was 'borrowed' from the Mithraic festival Black Friday, which commemorated the death of Mithra.

knightofalbion,

re: "The Crucifixion was on a Wednesday."


Do you have any of the information asked for in the OP?

BTW, how do you reconcile a 4th day crucifixion with Luke 24:21?

But really.

Does it matter which day it was?
