    they walked for three days in the desert and did not find water.
    Since water can be seen as a symbol of time you might think here of a kind of deadline.

    After three days they arrived at the end of time.

    A same notion might underly the three days of NT.

    Exodus 15:25, So he cried out to the Lord, and the Lord instructed him concerning a piece of wood, which he cast into the water, and the water became sweet.

    Piece of wood = "ets" --= tree. It is said to be the tree of life.

    That is what they told Pharaoh, they only wanted to go into the Wilderness; a three-day journey. (Exodus 3:18) and now let us go, we beseech thee, three days' journey into the wilderness, that we may sacrifice to the LORD our God.

    As for water; (Eccl 11:1) Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days.
    Is "many" one more than "three"?

    Someone told me once that if you go sit in a watchtower in the desert, that you can see a caravan coming three days before its arrival by a dust-cloud on the horizon.

    So if you sit in the middle of the week, on a wednesday, you can look three days into the past, till sunday, and three days into the future, till saturday, i.e. you can look over the whole week.

    Which might be expressed in Genesis 15:5,

    And He took him outside, and He said, "Please look heavenward and count the stars, if you are able to count them." And He said to him, "So will be your seed."


    Rashi:

    He took him out of the terrestrial sphere and lifted him above the stars. This explains the expression of הַבָּטָה, looking down from above (Gen. Rabbah 44:12).
    Wednesday is the fourth day, the day God made sun, moon and stars.
    German "Mittwoch" = middle of the week.

    Dan9:27 "And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease.. "

    When the 7th day is Day of Rest (like Sunday), then 1st day must be Monday, eh? So Wednesday is surrounded by day 1,2, ahead.. and thur/fri other side. Wed in the middle!

    But there's another way to look at it..

    Dux allows: "It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out the matter". Pr25:2

    The day of rest is the seventh day.

    Sunday coincides the first day of the week, Monday the second day, Tuesday the third.


    Daniel 9:27 doesn't speak of the middle of the week, but of half the week, which is 3,5 days, coniciding the time, times and a half ( = 3,5 times), of Daniel12:7, picked up by the writer of Revelation as 3,5 years = 1260 days = 42 months.
