Welcome to rstrats

Are you the same 'rstrats' we see here and there?  If so, you may even get an answer to your question about Matthew 12:40 and the sixth day.  

Pull up a chair and make yourself at home.

Lexi, here it is.  I'm sure rstrats won't mind me posting it:

Whenever the three days and three nights of Matthew 12:40 is brought up in a “discussion” with 6th day crucifixion folks, they frequently suggest that it is a Jewish idiom for counting any part of a day as a whole day. I wonder if anyone has documentation that shows an example from the first century or before regarding a period of time that is said to consist of a specific number of days as well as a specific number of nights where the period of time absolutely doesn't/can't include at least a part of each one of the specific number of days and at least a part of each one of the specific number of nights?

Oh. Didn't LeClerc have a conversation around something similar?

 I'm not sure - tbh I didn't take a lot of notice of him.
