swathdiver,

re:  "A thorough study of the scriptures teaches that Christ died on a Wednesday and was in the tomb 3 full days and nights and emerged on Sunday."  

That would be an issue for a different topic.

I think it’s Thursday, too. Oh, and I’m closing this thread. I see no value in having it periodically reopened in case there’s someone here to start an argument. 

Hmmmn: please excuse my apparent clueless-ness here, but as I see it: 1) The OP here was yours, not someone here claiming such idiomatic usage. Why should we source it??? 2) Maybe nobody has

A Jewish day began at 6am (sunrise) and night began at 6pm (sunset).  The Baptist Challenge and the Baptist Pillar have articles showing the biblical timeline for Christ's arrest, trial, crucifixtion,

I don't see any similarity.  In your example I assume that everyone would understand that at least a portion of each one of 5 calendar days would be involved.  
But would anyone understand that no part of a 5th calendar day would be spent at the Falls?

I mostly browse on phone which doesn't show post numbers, but I assume it is this post?

To be honest you reject out of hand anything that people post so I thought it not worth pursuing any further.

I didn't answer in this fashion reviously because I thought it would serve no purpose other than to offend you, but as you specifically requested an answer I now have.

I wonder if you might point out where I rejected any examples which show that it was common to 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 could occur?

DaveW,

You have a question directed to you in my last post. 

Which I will not answer....

.....because it will not serve any useful purpose.

But perhaps sometime in the future someone who does think the crucifixion took place on the 6th day of the week will look in on this topic. 

In that case then, you will have one person who thinks this way. What will that accomplish for you?

I need to add:  "and who thinks that a calendar day begins at sunset".

Nehemiah thought that the sabbath day began at sunset. (See Nehemiah 13:19)

As far as the question in the original posting, I cannot answer.  I have no such evidence to provide, nor do I believe that our Lord Jesus Christ was crucified on Friday.  Rather, through precise Bible study I am convinced that our Lord Jesus Christ was crucified on Thursday.

Pastor Scott Markle,
re:  "Nehemiah thought that the sabbath day began at sunset."

But I doubt that Nehemiah thought that the Messiah would be crucified on the 6th day of the week. 

 

 

re:  "As far as the question in the original posting, I cannot answer...I am convinced that our Lord Jesus Christ was crucified on Thursday."

And as such, this topic does not really apply to you.

 Point #5 in post #102 should be changed to read:  To account for the discrepancy, there may be some of the above who say that the Messiah was using common figure of speech/colloquial language of the time, i.e., that it is was common to forecast or say that a day or a night would be involved with an event when no part of the day or no part of the night could occur.

Maybe someone new visiting this topic who believes the Messiah died on the 6th day of the week and who thinks He was using common figure of speech/colloquial language in Matthew 12:40 might know of examples to support the idea of commonality.

I thought most Baptists think the crucifixion occurred on the 6th day of the week.  Has that belief changed?

Actually, the great majority of Independent, Fundamental Baptists that I know believe that our Lord Jesus Christ was crucified on Wednesday.

I myself believe strongly that our Lord Jesus Christ was crucified on Thursday.

I myself am not aware of a single Independent, Fundamental Baptist who holds that our Lord Jesus Christ was crucified on Friday, no, not even a single one.
