No, three. Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
If you want to be technical Saturday night is divided into two parts by the daytime. But Saturday only has one night. Why are you determined to disprove the Bible?No, three. Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Each calendar day has 2 night times when going by a midnight to midnight 24 hour day. So the 2nd night time of Friday was the first night, the 2 night times of Saturday were the second and third nights and the 1st night time of Sunday was the fourth night.

Is this, like, an issue where we're supposed to be talking about how the Bible is spiritual and things happen in God's time rather than be splitting hares about how Jews, Romans, Greeks and others keep time and what the months and days are called?
Well, that's an issue in temporal physics, and it's become very confused for people since the times of Einstein. People have a hard time with space time relativity, and knowing all that is this huge giant snob thing, to the point where one of my astronomy books, in a discussion of the calculus needed to complete the course, lamented that in modern times, everyone knows all about Neils Bhor and Max Plank, but alas, no one knows their Newton. In other words, if you have a real PhD in Astrophysics like my friend Steve over at Bremerton who works for the Navy Yard, the "highest math" is still found in the works of Newton (specifically, you finish off with Integrals, which are for determining the total amount of change over an amount of a passage of time). All the rest in applied science (modernist) is just theoretical and something to do as a game in your spare time, that's were all those lousy New Math teachers with their folding game boards and three in one dice and all that junk come in.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 common Jewish idiom for counting any part of a day as a whole day. I wonder if anyone (who thinks that the crucifixion took place on the 6th day of the week and who thinks that the "heart of the earth" means the tomb) knows of any writing which shows a phrase stating a specific number of days and/or a specific number of nights being used in the first century or before when it absolutely couldn't have included at least parts of each one of the specific number of days and at least parts of each one of the specific number of nights?
Now what are we looking for here, total time of crucifixion, during which Jesus hung upon the cross, or time on the cross plus time in the tomb, or just time in the tomb?
What nonsense. A night has two parts, morning before dawn and evening. A day has two parts, morning after dawn and afternoon.If you want to be technical Saturday night is divided into two parts by the daytime.
Actually, it's not. The first night of Saturday is over and done with at sunrise. The second night of Saturday which starts at sunset is a completely new night.

What??? What have I written which causes you to ask such a question?
That's interesting. It's also a very well known fact. However, I would be interested to know, what is YOUR legal nationality? Are you a citizen of either Italy or Israel? Because personally, I live in the United States, which has it's own calendar, based on the Gregorian calendar instituted by post Constantinian Rome, with modern and local additions and variations, including the institution of modern time zones and Daylight savings time, which also go back to and build on the British institution of Greenwich Mean time, which sets the zero hour and reflex point of every day to London time, just as the romans (and officially by NIST standards) the United States sets each day as beginning at midnight as the previous day ends. SO what I'm saying is that in the modern present day English speaking Untied States, A day begins (in terms of world time) at midnight in London as the last day ends, and locally (meaning in your own city's local time zone) at midnight determined by astronomical calculation from your global coordinates. Now what are you doing here? Just a simple integral of time span, or do you mean to actually sole the common ashiest versus Christian age of the earth debate by placing your simple integral in a complete linear account of all of terrestrial time?In Hebrew time a day is sunset to sunset. The Hebrew time was used for religious purposes but the people in that day lived according to Roman time, which is midnight to midnight.
So by Roman time Christ was crucified and in the grave on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I have no idea where he's getting this idea of only two nights. Friday evening is night time.
I will also note Roman Catholicism cannot be used in Bible study since even they admit they are not biblical Christians.
The Hebrew timekeeping was very complicated and accurate, even including leap components to adjust for time drift. Even Revelation is per Hebrew time. 360 days to a year, 42 months is 3 1/2 years, as is 1260 days. A day can mean 24 hours or it can mean a distinct period of time. The generation can mean the lifetime of a group of people or a time of sameness. A week of days is seven years. Try to read the Bible in today's terms and you will fail.Oh, I see. I've definitely heard of that problem before, there were some people who tried to work on a BC to AD timeline and they had a problem with the time seeming to go forward from creation (which they couldn't date without the Bible) but backward from the time of Christ. Also they had some kind of issue with there being no zero year in there, which sounds all Indo Algebraic to me, And it has a few frills on it in East vs West Greek Arithmetic or Arabic algebra as the proper math, which no one ever addresses except in hyper modernist Kurt Gödel, Gottleib Freege and Bertrand Russel land where everyone and their dog thinks that math was invented by some person instead of being discovered by natural scientists observing the solar system, marking time and counting rocks or measuring fields. Are you saying you refer your timing to the Daniel's dream prophecies, accepting the Hebrew Old Testament timeline at face value? because I'm sure that works, the 79 weeks prophecy belongs to Daniel, and the statue dream is also true, even though it went to the Babylonian king first. In fact, part of the story is illustrative of how you cant just change time and present or future events that God predicted, by making some kind of secular decree, building a statue, playing acid jazz and throwing your slaves to hungry lions.
You did the Hebrew calendar and put it on a parallel timeline with the Roman one? Good for you, that's a lot of work. I've seen that before, the JWs still try to keep church observances by Hebrew time. Well, that's them, and as their translation points out, they all live in the New World, not the old one with the yearly liturgy of saints days and high holy days remembering events in the life of Christ.
Look at the chart, it clearly shows a single a day as 24 hours with two periods of night. But still only one day.
