Suppose there is a sentence like this :
"At evening of the first day of the week"
What does it mean ?
A. is it the "beginning" of the first day of the week?
(morning of the first day of the week has not arrive yet)
B. Or is it the "almost end" of the first day of the week?
(morning of the first day of the week has past).
This question come based on the sentence in John 20:19:
On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jewish leaders
In the Bible of my language, the word "evening" is translated to "night".
Also in my country there is what it called an "Evening Prayer" ---> "Maghrib Prayer" which starts around the Twelfth hour, right after the sunset.
In English world, there is a commentary for that verse which also mentioned it as "night", as read in this link.
So, if it's "night" (evening = right after the sunset) - I thought that first day of the week has not the morning yet.
But some said that "evening" in the verse is not "night" but around the Ninth hour which to me the Ninth hour is something more like "afternoon" than "evening". So here, that first day of the week already has the morning some hours ago, and within three or four hours more it will be the second day of the week.
