In the very beginning, God made a distinct difference between night and day on Earth; so that His day on Earth is not a 24-hour amalgam of light and dark; rather, His day on Earth is when the Sun is up, and His night on Earth is when the Sun is down.

Gen 1:4-5 . . God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light day, and the darkness he called night.

Gen 1:14 . . And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night

Gen 1:16 . .And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night.

Gen 1:17-18 . . And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness.

If only people kept those God-given physical characteristics in mind when working with Matt 12:40, their calculations would be greatly simplified.


FAQ: Why bother defining the limits of day and night?

A: It's necessary that we nail down the physical characteristics of night and day because so many people have allowed 24-hour Jewish civil time to muddle their understanding of Matt 12:40.

Here's another "muddle" that pops up now and then.

Gen 1:5 . . And the evening and the morning were the first day.

Creation's days are very controversial and a special area of study all to themselves. For example: chronologically evening and morning define overnight which suggests that God did all of His creative work in the dark.

I highly recommend categorizing creation's days apart from days on Earth in order to avoid confusion, especially when the preponderance of evidence testifies that day is a time of light, and night is a time of darkness; viz: day on Earth is when the sun is up, and night is when the sun is down.
