What is missing in all of the posts is Jesus was crucified during the Passover week. Also there are weekly Sabbaths and annual Sabbaths. Passover starts and ends with an annual Sabbath. Therefore the Sabbath could be on any day of the week. With Jesus rising on the first day of the week the 3 days going backwards is Saturday, Friday and Thursday making Wednesday afternoon the day of crucifiction and Thursday the annual Sabbath.
re: "What is missing in all of the posts is..."
What is missing are examples showing 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 occur.

Whenever the three days and three nights of Matthew 12:40 is brought up in a "discussion" with 6th day crucifixion folks, they frequently argue 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 that the phrase "x" days and "x"nights was ever used in the first century or before when it didn’t include at least parts of the "x" days and at least parts of the "x" nights?
If you study creation...there would be any problem about this...read gen 1.
evening and the morning the first day
Evening and the morning second day
Evening and morning the third day.
Apply that to Jesus death and resurrection
Resurrection -3rd day..any part of the evening and morning is the 3rd day
Sabbath - 2nd day evening morning.
Death - 1st day...any part of evening/day is 1st day...thus 3 days and three nights is 3 days or the third day...
Its not lacking a night...it is tha lack of understanding....
Let me repeat...
In the beginning....gen 1..read it.
Evening and morning were the first day...
Evening and morning were second day..
Evening and morning = were third day...
3 days 3 nights were just saying on the 3rd day...
If you add another night you are moving on to the 4th day...
