    It appears that you don't.

    1. The Messiah said that three nights would be involved with His time in the "heart of the earth".

    2. There are some who believe 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 believe that the "heart of the earth" is referring to the tomb.

    4. However, those two beliefs allow for only 2 nights to be involved.

    5. To account for the discrepancy, there maybe some of those above who say that the Messiah was using common figure of speech/colloquial language of the time, i.e., that it is was common to forecast or say that a daytime or a night time would be involved with an event when no part of a daytime or no part of a night time could occur.

    6. In order for someone to legitimately say that it was common, they would have to know of more that 1 example to make that assertion.

    I simply wonder if anyone knows of examples to support the idea of commonality?
    First, to address those who believe that Jesus was crucified on the 6th day of the week (which would be Saturday our time, but Friday during Hebrew time), but that is not possible. Per the Laws of Moses, the High Sabbath, which is only observed during the Feast of Unleavened Bread, cannot occur on the same day as the weekly Sabbath.

    The Feast of Unleavened Bread begins on 14 Nissan and lasts for 4 days. The Feast of Unleavened Bread is composed of the following observances:

    1. 14 Nissan (Passover)
    2. 15 Nissan (Unleavened Bread)
    3. 16 Nissan (a normal day or uses as preparation day for the weekly Sabbath)
    4. 17 Nissan (First Fruits)

    So this 4 day observance could not be held on a Friday since the weekly Sabbath would have fallen on Saturday, which aligns with the day of Unleavened Bread, and that is not permissible. Plus Sunday would have been considered a normal day or day of preparation and Monday would have ended up being the First Fruits. Tradition has it that Jesus was raised on the 1st day of the week, being Sunday. And Sunday began on 17 Nissan 30AD (which is actually 6:01PM Saturday per our Calendar).

    Therefore, it is impossible for the 4 day Feast to start on a Friday and end on a Monday since that does not agree with the Laws of Moses. The Feast of Unleavened Bread is required to begin on Thursday and end on Sunday. So Jesus would not have been crucified on a Friday. Here is a picture of the 7 Feasts of Israel which should help you out.

    Israel is more than just a race; it is more than just a nation; it is the people of God, from faith, by faith, and only faith. Those who assemble in the name of Christ Jesus, embrance Israel because they are Israel

    Jesus 3 days and 3 nights flow-chart

    Here is a flow-chart of Christ's Passion fulfilling the Spring Feasts of Israel, which are comprised of:

    14 Nissan - Passover
    15 Nissan - Unleavened Bread (High Sabbath or Special Annual Sabbath)
    16 Nissan - Normal day also used as the preparation day for the Weekly Sabbath)
    17 Nissan - First Fruits

    Important note:

    Keep in mind that the Hebrew 24 hour day begins at sunset, whereas our new day begins at midnight. This is why the flow-chart might look confusing. The easiest way to remember this is just substitute 6PM for our midnight, and the flow-chart will make sense. While 6PM is not the actual start of the new day, it is a reference point since sunset differed throughout the year: aka sunset occurring earlier during winter months than summer months.

    Thus as we can see, Jesus spend 3 literal days and 3 literal nights in the tomb. He was fulfilling the Spring Feasts as commanded under the Laws of Moses. And His Crucifixion was time-critical for the fulfillment of these Spring Feast days. This is why Jesus used phrases such as, My hour has not yet come" or "The hour as come". It was important for Him to serve as the Passover lamb precisely on the days assigned by God for the Spring Feasts.

    Since it's been awhile, perhaps someone new looking in may know of examples.

    That would be an issue for a different topic.
