How many actual days are recounted in the New Testament(s)?
Not traveling from here to there, resting or sitting around,
but days in which something was actually said or done?
And letís give a number unique to and by Mark, Mathew,
Luke, and John.

If one includes Revelations?

Pretty much . . . all of them.

hehehe I'd say that covers them all.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane,
I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

Trapper once asked his very best friend in America, me,

Trapper:  what is the meaning of life?

Me:  if you really want know, then you may need to read the Bible. I believe that your parents are Catholics because   you are German.

Trapper:  I was in all boy boarding school until 18. I can recite the Bible.Ē

Me:  well. You, Get married and have 4 children then either you have no time to ask or you will know the answer.

So, we may count the days from beginning to the end. Count every details of  the minutes. If we are struggling on why we live, Long life or short life alike is a kind of life of confusing.

And I never heard that Old or new testament is measured by days. Many counts everything to 7,12, or 40. I think those are just to far away from the words. Which is  behave, behave and behave accordingly.

My thought

More specifically in the thirty or so
years in the life of Jesus.

The span of Jesus' ministry from his Baptism by John in the Jordan, until his death and resurrection, are approximated at 3 years.  The number of actual days recounted in the narrative of the gospels is a matter of conjecture.  Though someone probably has a good idea, I don't really know.  

There must be more to this question than meets the eye.

Stephen.

Do you mean that each book starts in different time and ending in different time? they are different.

or something else that you have already had answer?
