  1. atpollard, re: "Yes, she called for them to start praying during the daytime..." What scripture says that the fast began during the daytime? re: "Why am I required to show that it was impossible?" In order to prove that the Esther account is an example where a daytime or a night time was said to be involved with an event when no part of a daytime or no part of a night could have occurred. re: "Can you show where the Esther account makes it impossible for at least a portion of three daytimes and two full night times to have been involved?" No. Any particular reason for asking?
  2. glf, Since you're not a 6th day of the week crucifixion advocate, you probably won't know of any examples.
  3. Can you show where the Esther account makes it impossible for at least a portion of three daytimes and at least a portion of three night times to have been involved?
  4. atpollard, re: "What would be the point." It would be responsive to the topic. re: "Examples were presented and rejected by fiat." How do you define "fiat" as you are using it here? re: "So 'perhaps someone will present an example that you like [accept]?'" Perhaps. re: "... Maybe the Gospel of Thomas or one of the other rejected books have something you will accept..." Maybe. re: "... since you rejected the biblical example from Esther." As explained above, Esther is not an example. Nothing in the account prohibits at least a portion of 3 daytimes and at least a portion of 3 night times.
  5. reformed baptist, re: "I've given up..." But I haven't. It's still possible that someone in the furture may know of examples.

    Easter: The Devil’s Holiday

    Just so it's understood that there is no Biblical record of the apostles or early Christians celebrating the Messiah's resurrection except as a fulfillment of the Feast of First Fruits.

    The Passover Problem Solved

    re: "The gospels say Jesus died on the day of preperation - ie Friday (Mat 27:62; Luk 23:54; Jon 19:14; 31; 42" I don't see where those verses say anything about a Friday. re: " Jesus said he would rise on the third day (not after it..." Mark 8:31 - "And He began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again." re: "It was the third day that Jesus met with his disciples on the road to Emmaus (Luke 24:21)" Actually, they said it was "the third since these things happened". That would mean that the crucifixion couldn't have occurred any later than the 5th day of the week.

    Defining Easter's Days And Nights

    theophilus, re: "She [Esther] did not specify the number of nights as Jesus did." As I said previously, it wouldn't make any difference if both phases mean the same because there is nothing in the Esther account that precludes at least a portion of each one of three daytimes and at least a portion of each one of three night times.
  10. OK, no problem. Perhaps someone new looking in may know of examples.
  11. atpollard, re: "Like Jesus statement ‘Three days and three nights’ could either have been meant literally (in which case many other scripture verses stating ‘on the third day’ are wrong)..." Not if it's referring to the third day after the burial which is in line with Mark 8:31 and Luke 24:21. But that's an issue for a different topic. re: "...you have CHOSEN to view it literally unless someone can prove it was a figure of speech." That is not what I'm requesting. re: "In exactly the same way, Ester can have meant the obvious ‘figure of speech’ and began and ended the fast during the day with no third night..." But nothing in the account requires or shows that she did begin the fast in the daytime. She could have begun during the night. The account doesn't say one way or the other. Therefore, it's not an example 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. re: "And what will you do with all of the verses that say Jesus rose on the THIRD day?" That's an issue for a different topic. Perhaps you could start one. re: "What about the two men walking who said ‘this is the third day since all this (Jesus arrest and crucifixion) happened’ ... Did they really mean this is the fourth day?" That's an issue for a different topic. re: "The choices are accept the idiom or get out a sharpie and start changing lots of other verses. You have chosen the sharpie by steadfastly rejecting all evidence of an idiom." Because none of the "evidence" has provided any examples which show that it 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 have occurred.
  12. atpollard, Or: night 1 - fast begins day 1 - fast continues night 2 - fast continues day 2 - fast continues night 3 - fast continues day 3 - fast continues and she sees the king

    She said "Night and day." She did not say "Three days and three nights." The fact that only two nights were involved is irrelevant. theophilus, re: "She said 'Night and day.'
