      Common Figure of Speech?

      Actually, the title should be "Examples of Common Figure of Speech"?

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

      2. There are those 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.

      3. Of those, there are some who think that the "heart of the earth" is referring to the tomb.

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

      5. 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.

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