asygo, it might make sense to you, but to them they say evening means morning.

To me, from evening to evening or between the evenings means a 24 hour period starting and ending at the same point in the day. But looks like some try to say it's a subset of a day.

What is happening, is an attempt to diminish the Sabbath. First they say it happens on different days of the week, then they say it starts in the morning, then they say it ends at noon. So now all you have to do is get up, go to church, come home and the Sabbath is over. And then make it happen on different days and wouldn't you know, since there's a ball game on Saturday, this week the Sabbath is on Wednesday.... unless there's also a game on that day. That is, in the morning. The end result intended by them is that it doesn't really matter.

When does the twenty-four-hour day begin---at sunset, at sunrise, or at midnight?

Answer:

The twenty-four-hour cycle begins at sunset, because at the moment the earth came into existence and began to rotate on its axis, there was no light “upon the face of the deep,” whereupon “God said, Let there be light: and there was light....And the evening and the morning were the first day.” Gen. 1:2, 3, 5.

The “light” which shone on the first day, and by which God divided the day from the night (set the earth revolving on its axis), was not, however, that of the sun, for the sun and the moon were not created until the fourth day, when He spoke them forth “to rule over the day and over the night” (Gen. 1:18), which He had beforehand established.

Thus it was that whereas the earth began punctuating eternal time with the first night of creation week, from which the weekly seventh-day Sabbath is measured; the moon began punctuating time at the end of the third day and at the beginning of the fourth night from which the month is measured, and the sun began to punctuate time at the end of the fourth night and the beginning of the fourth day, from which the year is measured.

Accordingly, the time-span which measures and segments the week, is three days in advance of the time-spans which measure and segment the solar year and the lunar month. In order, therefore, that His people might commemorate the week of creation, from the instant that the span of earthly time began, God commanded: “From even unto even, shall ye celebrate your sabbath.” Lev. 23:32.

So the twenty-four-hour day begins with the; night, at sunset; and the daytime itself, separate from the nighttime, begins at sunrise. (Answerer, vol. 3, Q-49)

Along with my suspicions of who Daryl was talking to which resulted in this thread, I'm wondering if of the feast-day fans you know, if you would say science, math, and logic would not be their strong points?

Makes sense too say the least...

There are texts in scripture that seem to support sun rise as the beginning of the day.
But there strong texts in scripture that supports the evening to evening understanding, especially for a religious day.

Some see this as saying that
- The work day starts at sunrise, the sun is up it's day, get up and start your day of work, sort of thing.
-- But a religious day starts at evening, as the sun goes down, put away secular things, and jobs, and focus on the spiritual, there will be no work that day.
--
Nehemiah 13:19 As soon as it began to grow dark at the
gates of Jerusalem before the Sabbath,
I commanded that the doors should be
shut and gave orders that they should
not be opened until after the Sabbath.
And I stationed some of my servants at
the gates, that no load might be brought
in on the Sabbath day.

John 20:1 Now on the first day of the week Mary
Magdalene came to the tomb early, while
it was still dark, and saw that the stone
had been taken away from the tomb.

Matth 28:1 28:1 In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week,

John 20:19 Then the same day at evening, (the resurrection day) being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews,

Lev. 7:15 And the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offerings for thanksgiving shall be
eaten on the day of his offering. He shall not leave any of it until the morning.


Lev. 23:5 In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is the LORD's passover.
Numbers 9:2-3 Let the children of Israel also keep the passover
at his appointed season.
In the fourteenth day of this month, at even, ye shall keep it

Lev.23:32 From even unto even, shall ye celebrate your Sabbath.

Mark 1:32 And at even, when the sun did set, they brought unto him all that were diseased,

So it seems to me -- even though there are texts in which people see the morning as the beginning of their work day, the Bible clearly states when a religious day, and the sabbath is to be kept.
It begins at EVENING and ends the next EVENING.
A direct command takes precedence.

The problem is mixing daylight with a 24 hour "day". And some of these feastkeeping flat earthers will even admit one shouldn't confuse the two, and then proceed to amalgamate the two.

Quote
Lev.23:32 From even unto even, shall ye celebrate your Sabbath.

And they'll say that verse is a feast sabbath not a regular day. Meaning that certain days begin at certain times, and other days begin at other times and this feast day overlaps other days.
Wha?...!

What are they trying to pull?
Guess anything other than following the Sabbath.
