I had a dream that we were all home with the Lord and happy and all things answered and explained and I was resting in the joy of it all … and then, … out of the corner of my eye I spotted a note posted on a prominent notice board in the middle of the main square and as I approached the note I could make out the author and it was you “rstrats” and in that note you were still trying to … and I started screaming ...no … no … NOOOO ….. not here too …
re: "That's the least of what you missed..."
What ever it was, it's an issue for another topic. This one is concerned with one thing and only one thing, i.e., examples which show instances of where a daytime or a night time was forecast or said to be involved with an event when no part of a daytime or no part of a night time could have occurred.
And again, that "someone new" needs to be someone who believes the crucifixion took place on the 6th day of the week with a 1st day of the week resurrection, and who thinks that the "heart of the earth" is referring to the tomb, and who tries to explain the lack of a 3rd night by saying that the Messiah was employing common figure of speech/colloquial language of the period.
There has been a long standing debate over the meaning of Matthew 12:40, “for just as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the sea monster, so shall the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.” In my opinion, the evidence supports the traditional...
You are very confusing. Jesus was removed from the cross and put in the grave and the eve of the Sabbath, which is Friday. He spent the whole Sabbath in the grave. He rose on the morning of the first day of the week, which is Sunday.

This might help address the right days question … it seems in 325 CE the Christian Council of Nicaea established that Easter would be held on the first Sunday after the first full moon occurring on or after equinox on March 21. Previously it had been held coinciding with the Passover Feasts.
Paschal controversies, in the Christian Church, disputes concerning the correct date for observing Easter (Greek Pascha). The earliest controversy was over the question of whether Easter should always be celebrated on a Sunday or on the actual day of the Jewish lunar month (14th of Nisan) on which the Paschal lamb was slaughtered. The latter practice, followed by the church in the Roman province of Asia, was generally condemned at the end of the 2nd century because it meant celebrating Easter when the Jews were keeping Passover.
You are wrong. Your question was answered. The very fact that the council changed the dates makes your question moot.
There never was a problem with the number of days because at the start the Church celebrated Easter in parallel with the Jewish celebration of Passover. Originally there was no problem with having the right number of days.
