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 or at the earliest to the time of His death when His spirit left His body.
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.
rstrats, I know what you are asking and I was waiting to see if you would get an answer here. Being a former catholic, what you are asking is something that I would have/should have been able to answer...as a catholic. But in order to do that I would have had to look to catholic documentation to get that answer. So taking that into account, I went looking and found this:
I believe it is the examples that you were asking for to support the belief of a Friday Crucifixion and Sunday resurrection. BUT! I seriously don't believe you will find anyone here on this forum who believes it, but I could be wrong. It is partly because of the Catholic's stance on this as to why I left the catholic church. I think if you want to find someone who actually believes this, you will have to visit other forums that conform to the catholic thinking.
I hope this helps. I look forward to the day when all the wrong ideas in this world are gone and all rejoice in the presence of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
