    Since you're not a 6th day of the week crucifixion advocate you probably don't know of any examples so this topic does not apply to you.
    Sure it does.
    Seeing a special high sabbath that in week, along with the regular weekly sabbath, places the crucifixion on Thursday, and fulfills Jesusí 3-days and 3-nights in the grave prophecy.

      That's an issue for a different topic. This one is only concerned with what was asked for in the OP.

          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.

            And by someone new I mean someone who thinks that the crucifixion took place on the 6th day of the week with a 1st day of the week resurrection and who thinks that the "heart of the earth" refers to the tomb and who tries to explain Matthew 12:40 by saying that it is using common Jewish figure of speech/colloquial language.

              It is clear from the immediate context that it is the preaching of Jonah that is the sign which Jesus is pointing to. Interesting! It is strange that Jesus would point to Jonah being in the belly of the whale and also to the preaching to Nineveh.

              Recall the passage:
              37For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
              38Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee. 39But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas: 40For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. 41The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here.

              The point then is not that the sign refers to Jesus being absent by being in the grave, the point is that the sign refers to the preaching of Jesus.

              Jesus preached for 3 days and nights in Jerusalem - the center (heart) of the land of Israel, and yes, also the earth. (See Ezekiel 5:5 also)


              It is evident from these other passages that the "earth" does not refer to the physical land of earth, but the social context which is in discussion

              You are the salt of the earth;
              On earth as it is in heaven.
              authority on earth to forgive
              the tribes of the earth will mourn
              As the "thief" in the night, Christ is going to suddenly appear on the throne of Israel - not the antichrist.
