mechanic,

And since you're also not a 6th day of the week crucifixion advocate, you most likely won't know of any examples.

You have asked question and are apparently not satisfied with the responses, so what is your take on this passage?

Mech and I aren't "6th day of the week advocates" because it doesn't fit the prophesied "three days and three nights." You seem pretty certain of something you haven't yet said; if you're a 6th day advocate, tell us how we and scripture are wrong.

I don't have a Phd, not even a BA. But I do have a DD214.

Because none of them have provided any examples.



re: "...so what is your take on this passage?"

I see no scriptural reason to think it means something other that what it says.

If you're an atheist, why would you care?

Then ... if you're nothing, there's nothing to discuss.

What? Where is that coming from?



re: "...there's nothing to discuss."

That's fine, because this particular topic is not asking for discussion.
