There is nothing in the world so damaged that it cannot be repaired by the hand of almighty God.

I encourage you to know this because without this certainty we should all of us be mad.

Yeah. Guess the peace and quite is over for awhile. Wonder ... why do they always think they're the first one we ever heard of...

Perhaps someone new looking in who thinks the crucifixion took place on the 6th day of the week, and who tries to explain the missing night of Matthew 12:40 by saying that the verse is using common Jewish idiomatic language, can defend that assertion by providing examples to support such commonality.

[size=1em]^^^ "If the verse is using common idiomatic language, there ought to be examples of that usage in order to be able to say that it was common."[/size]

[size=1em]Well, Mech's link does respond to your "If" question about common Hebrew "idiomatic" language of days, doesn't it? Or is that not actually a part of your still concealed goal? [/size] ;D [size=small] [/size]

Just another atheist trying to show the Bible wrong, using the Bible. A pot stirrer to boot, being vague for what ever reason.

wncchester,
re: "Well, Mech's link does respond to your 'If' question about common Hebrew 'idiomatic' language of days, doesn't it?"

I'm afraid that it doesn't.



re: "Or is that not actually a part of your still concealed goal?"

It isn't. And there is nothing being concealed. The purpose for this topic is clearly stated in the OP. If it was indeed common to forecast that a daytime or a night time would be involved with an event when no part of the daytime or no part of the night time could have occurred I am simply asking for examples to show that it was common to do that.

[size=1em]^^^^ ;D "If it was indeed common to forecast that a daytime or a night time would be involved with an event when no part of the daytime or no part of the night time could have occurred I am simply asking for examples to show that it was common to do that."

You mean ... you want to know how something happened but it couldn't have occurred in ether daytime nor nighttime? I think you have us whipped but would you give us an example of what you mean? [/size]

[size=1em]I don't believe anyone but you has EVER proposed that and we've had some strange stuff! [/size]
