 And that someone needs to be someone who believes the crucifixion took place on the 6th day of the week, and who thinks the "heart of the earth" refers to the tomb, and who tries to explain the lack of a third night by saying that the Messiah was using common figure of speech/colloquial language.

Since it's been awhile, perhaps someone new visiting this topic may know of examples.

For anyone looking in who starts at the end of the posts and skips the previous ones:

The Messiah said that 3 night times would be involved with His time in the "heart of the earth".  However, there are those who believe that the Messiah died on the 6th day of the week with a 1st day of the week resurrection, and who think that the "heart of the earth" is referring to the tomb or at the earliest to the time between the leaving of His spirit from His body. But this belief allows for only 2 night times to be involved. To reconcile this discrepancy, some of those may say that the Messiah was using common Jewish idiomatic language.  I am simply asking anyone from the above for examples to support that assertion; i.e., instances where a daytime or a night time was forecast to be involved with an event when no part of the daytime or no part of the night time could have occurred. If it was common usage, there ought to be examples in order to legitimately make that assertion.
