Why?

I am simply looking for some of those instances, scriptural or otherwise, i.e., examples where a daytime or a night time was forecast to be involved with an event when no part of the daytime or no part of the night time could have occurred.
Why?
What possible difference could it make? Why should anyone care which meaning or meanings were correct? It's not like the Bible is not filled with contradictions, factual errors and ambiguities. What possible difference could one more such example make?

What contradiction, factual error or ambiguity does Matthew 12:40 show?
re: "What possible difference could one more such example make?"
One more? I have yet to see even one example.
If you have never seen an example of a Biblical contradictions, factual error and ambiguity you have simply never honestly read the Bible.
In the instance of this thread there was a question of what the actual terms meant. The fact that there is a question with multiple responses is direct evidence of a Biblical ambiguity and that one of the responses if not both are factually wrong.
