I also need to add: "...and who thinks that a calendar day begins at sunset."
God of course.

Genesis 1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.


God bless

The fault in Bible complications is not with God or the Bible, but with men who refuse to believe what God says and think we have to interpret what He says in order to get the meaning. Dake Bible -Mark 11:17 note

I'm afraid I don't understand the points of the last 3 posts with regard to this topic.

In thinking about it, I realize that it makes no difference to this topic whether a calendar day began at sunset versus at sunrise.

Point #5 in the OP should be changed to: "To account for the lack of a 3rd night, there may be some of those mentioned above who say that the Messiah was employing common figure of speech/colloquial language."
