Quotations are from the NJKV. If you believe I have mistakenly omitted any passages or counted incorrectly, please email me (see link below). I do not promise to respond to all email, but I will try to consider whether the numbers should be modified.
Note: It might be expected that the New Testament references would include examples of "the first day of the week." However, I have not included any such references, because there is no word for "day" in the original text in those examples.
Likewise Luke 13:32 contains the expression third day, but it is not included below since it has no word for day in the original. The expression is almost surely not literal, but it is prophetic, and the context clearly shows it is not literal. While it refers to a period longer than a literal day, it does not even mean so much as a year, let alone millions of years. But again, the main point is that it does not even use the word day.
