I haven't studied the issue of the calendar too much in-depth, but I recently came across one reformed author who believes its biblically meant to be sunrise to sunrise.

https://reformedbooksonline.com/when-does-the-lords-day-begin/

"The most plausible passage for an evening-reckoning of the Sabbath in the New
Testament, concerning the events of Jesusí burial and the buying of spices on Friday
evening (Lk. 23:50-56), is found to be incompatible with an evening-reckoning and
consistent with the morning-view. "


I'm not sure it materially affects the sign of Jonah the Saviour was intending.

Further clarification of the OP:

1. The Messiah said that He would be three days and three nights in the "heart of the earth".

2. There are some who believe that a calendar day begins and ends at sunset.

3. Of those 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.

4. Of those, there are some who think that the "heart of the earth" is referring to the tomb or at the earliest to the moment when His spirit left His body).

5. A 6th day of the week crucifixion/1st day of the week resurrection allows for only 2 nights to be involved.

6. To account for the lack of a 3rd night, some of those mentioned above say that the Messiah was employing common figure of speech/colloquial language.

7. I wonder if anyone who falls in that above group of believers might provide examples to support that belief of commonality; i.e., instances where a daytime or a night time was forecast or said to be involved with an event when no part of a daytime or no part of a night time could have occurred.

Do your beliefs include a seventh-day sabbath?

There is no such thing as preaching Christ and Him crucified, unless we preach what nowadays is called Calvinism. It is a nickname to call it Calvinism; Calvinism is the gospel, and nothing else. - C.H. Spurgeon

re: "Do your beliefs include a seventh-day sabbath?"

That's an issue for a different topic.

Hmm... that seems to be your stock reply to any answer which you do not like, or to any question which you wish to avoid.

People may be more willing to engage in conversation with you, if you were more forthcoming about your own position.

Why should I like non-applicable replies?



re: "... or to any question which you wish to avoid."

I have unfortunately let myself get drawn off topic and have answered a number of questions. As for your question "Do your beliefs include a seventh-day sabbath?" please explain why you need an answer in order to provide examples.



re: "People may be more willing to engage in conversation with you, if you were more forthcoming about your own position."

First off I'm not looking for conversation - only examples. And secondly, while I have given a number of positions, none of them, or for that matter any other ones, are nesessary for being able to provide examples.

That much, at least, is true. You have repeatedly demonstrated in this thread, and in others, that you have no interest at all in what anyone else has to say, unless it lines up entirely with your own opinion.

By being secretive, you lead others to believe that you have something to hide. By refusing to answer certain questions, or to make your own position known, you arouse suspicions and simply alienate others.

For five years you have continued to hammer away at this same point, all the while rejecting the answers you have received and repeating your mantra of "That's an issue for a different topic." Honestly, I don't know what you think you will achieve by doing so.

Why don't you open up, and tell us where you stand, and exactly what your purpose and reasoning is in asking this question? Who knows, perhaps you will find that there are others on this forum who agree with your position.

Meta4,
re: "Why don't you open up, and tell us where you stand, and exactly what your purpose and reasoning is in asking this question? "

My stance/position is that if someone asserts that it was common in the 1st century or before to forecast or say that a daytime or a night would be involved with an event when no part of a daytime or no part of a night time could occur, then that person would have to know of examples in order to legitimately make the assertion of commonality. That is this topic's only issue. And I'm simply curious if it was indeed common usage of the time.


BTW, you have a couple of questions directed to you in post #55417.
