Is this important to you?
Why?

It is.


You asked if I think the Messiah made a mistake? I replied that I didn't. I then asked what I had written that causes you to ask such a question. I'd like to know so that I can avoid writing any similar confusing comment/s in the future.

Have to go back and reread everything.
Hold on....

Post 169 refers back to 164.

For some reason, it's very important to you as to how many nights Jesus spend in the spirit world before the resurrection.
Is this right?

My point to you is that IT WAS common usage.
I even gave you an example and it was how Italians "next week" many times.
The Jews did count any part of a day or night as a whole day.
Thus, even though Jesus died on Friday at 3 p.m.,,,it is counted as 3 days and not 2...
which is what we in the West would say (that there are 2 days between Friday and Sunday).

I asked you if you thought Jesus made a mistake in stating Jonah 1:17 and relating it to Himself...
that Jesus would be in the earth 3 days and 3 nights.....
Jesus was quoting Jonah....

Some theologians believe Jesus did not die on a Friday, but on Thursday....
So the resurrection would have been on the Sabbath.

I just fail to see how this is worth debating/discussing.
What difference does it make?

P.S. You didn't say anything that you should be careful of in the future.

No, not for the purpose of this topic.



re: "My point to you is that IT WAS common usage. I even gave you an example and it was how Italians 'next week' many times."

Even if your reasoning is appropriate - and I don't think that it is - you're talking about Italian customs in the 21st century and not about customs in 1st century Palestine.



re: "The Jews did count any part of a day or night as a whole day."

Agreed. But when did they count no part of a night as a night or no part of a daytime as a daytime?



re: "I asked you if you thought Jesus made a mistake in stating Jonah 1:17 and relating it to Himself..."

And I ask again, what have I written which caused you to ask that question?



re: "I just fail to see how this is worth debating/discussing.

I hadn't intended this topic to be about debate or discussion. I am merely asking for examples.

wondering,

You have a couple of questions directed to you in post #186.
BTW, you said that there are 2 days between Friday and Sunday. Actually there is only 1 day between Friday and Sunday.

Please tag me or I won't know you're posting to me. Put a @ before the name.

This is an old thread and I can't remember it, to tell you the truth.

I don't really know how the Jews counted the days or nights....but each part of a day or night is considered a whole time period.

But where is no part of a day or no part of a night considered even a part of a day or a part of a night?

Huh?
Sorry rstrats...I really don't know much about Jewish time and have mentioned this already.

Hi strats,
These sound like interesting threads.
Maybe we could revive a couple?
I'll look into it.
