Jonah 1:17

"and Jonah was in the belly of the fish 3 days and 3 nights"

1 day equals 24 hrs.

3 x 24= 72 FULL HOURS

Now was Jonah in there for a full 72 hrs? NO

In Hebrew , they counted any part a of a day as a whole.

IF JONAH was in there for a full 72 hrs. then he could not have come out until after 72 hrs which would make it MORE than 72 hrs.

It would be 72 hours plus what ever time he came out.

ut he answered them,“An evil and adulterous generation seeks for a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. (40) For just as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. Matt.12:39-40.

This would indicate that Jesus understood that Jonah spent a FULL 3 days and 3 nights in the belly of the great fish. You are making a great leap of faith in saying that in Hebrew any part of a day counted as a full day. You say it but you don't prove it. I don't believe it is true, because Jesus was nothing if not specific in EVERYTHING He said. If He said "3 days and 3 nights' then that is exactly what He meant.

"inclusive reckoning" is a Catholic effort to help you get brainwashed into believing that Jesus' so-called 2 hours in the grave before dark on Friday, should be counted as a FULL DAY so you must believe in an early SUNDAY morning resurrection.

Jesus was crucified late Wednesday afternoon as ANTITYPE of the Paschal lamb, and was resurrected by His Father, late on Sabbath afternoon. Matt 28:1 OPSE "as it DAWNED TOWARD the first day of the week". And now you know the truth!

I have. SOME Hebrew scholars say that there is a possibility that there is inclusive reckoning of time, other scholars say not. In spite of this you cannot ever say that Jesus was not specific when speaking of time.

Silly man!

Sunday CANNOT be the THIRD DAY since Jesus was crucified if he were crucified on a Wednesday.

Are you a monkey wrench?

So you believe,according to the inclusive dictum, that Yeshua was in the grave 2 nights and only ONE day?

I'll explain again.

Jonah in fish for 72 hours, according to your reckoning, that means he could not come out until 72 hrs are up.

Coming out AFTER 72 HRS would be more than 72 hrs

Regardless if it was a minute or an hour it would still be more than 72 hrs.

He could not come out before 72 hours or it would not be 3 days and 3 nights which equals 72 hrs.

I agree with Kingfisher on the Wednesday crucifixion.
As to 'inclusive reckoning': why is it that people insist on changing one time period for another. The fact is, Jesus said Jonah was in the belly of the fish for 3 days and 3 nights. This means what it says. Jesus gave it in days and it should stay in days and not be converted to hours. This is the same situation as when people change prophecy that is given in years to days, or given in weeks into months, or months into days, or days converted to years. God gave prophecy in EXACTLY the denomination that He chose for a reason. What gives anyone the right to change something that God has established? Oh, that's right; people have changed Sabbath to Sunday, so why not anything else?

A day is 24 hrs read you Bible.

You are truly Stubborn and denying the Scripture.

So what time on WEdnesday was Christ Crucified, which by the way does not match the time periods that Christ fulfilled the Scarificies in Mark 15:25 ,33-34 Luke 23:44 Num 28:4 Johnn 18:28-30.

But you reject Scripture and you reject the time in hrs which Christ must fulfill.

Even with inclusive reckoning, where any part of a day or night is counted as a full day/night, you run short.

3 Days & 3 Nights if Jesus died on Friday:

Friday Day
Friday Night
Saturday Day
Saturday Night
Sunday Day
Sunday Night

It does not add up. Even with the inclusive reckoning, if Jesus was crucified on Friday, He would have to be resurrected at 6-7pm at the earliest on Sunday evening, according to His own prophecy.

It is an unfortunate thing that most have followed tradition so blindly, ignoring the Word of God, that they have lost the ability to count...

If you are interested try reading an article I wrote years ago that I titled "The Sabbath Resurrection of Christ". It explains in detail why there are many of us that believe that there are reasonable expectations that the Passover sacrifice of Jesus took place over a defined period of 3 full nights and 3 full days, and that in planning the Passover this particular way God confirmed the Sabbath in a way that cannot be challenged. I would appreciate you reading this article and letting me know what you think.

I forgot that your bible is a full third thinner than the word of God. Sorry.
