Part of Paul?s Gospel message in 1 Corinthians 15 is the phrase ?that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures" I've always wondered what scriptures?

I've my own ideas, but what are your sugestions?

Hi John
Tricky question I've done a few searches in the scriptures and not found anything concrete the best I can do is what our lord said.

Mat 12:40  For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
   


The trouble here is when we read the story of Jonas we would not associate it with our lords death and resurrection.
the other thing is the number three all through scripture it has a special significance from Genesis  through to revelations is this what Christ meant we need to look at the number three for the answer his ministry was three years three went up the mount of transfiguration there were three wise men jest a few instances.

look forward to your explanation

Love and peace

However, Jesus seems to have regarded the whole story of Jonah as a prophecy of His own mission. In more than one place, He speaks of His death and resurrection as "the sign of Jonah."
"Since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God." (II Corinthians 7:1)

Prophecies of Jesus? Birth and Ancestral Lineage
Prophecies of Jesus? birth are quite staggering:
His incarnation of the Seed of Woman ? will be born of a virgin
Is the Son of God
Abraham?s seed ? the Messiah would come from the Hebrew race through Abraham?s lineage, in effect narrowing down the possible Messianic candidates.
Son of Isaac (lineage) ? Since Abraham had two sons, half the lineage is eliminated
Son of Jacob (lineage) ? Since Isaac had two sons, half the lineage is eliminated
From the tribe of Judah (lineage) ? Since Jacob had 12 sons, from whom the 12 tribes of the Hebrew nation were formed, the prophecy narrows the lineage down to one. It is, in essence, eliminating 11 out of the 12 candidates (excluding population numbers).
From the family line of Jesse (lineage), eliminating a vast spectrum of other family lines.
In the House of David (lineage) ? Since Jesse had at least eight sons, at least seven-eighths of the lineage is eliminated.
Born in Bethlehem ? Though Mary and Joseph lived in Nazareth, an incredible set of circumstances beyond their controlled them to Bethlehem, where Jesus was born. Bethlehem, which means, ?house of bread,? then fittingly becomes the birthplace of the one who is known as the ?Bread of Life.? All other cities in the world are thus eliminated from being the birthplace of the Messiah.
Was presented with gifts ? three wise men from the east brought gifts
As Herod murders children ? Herod had set out to murder all male children under two years old in and around Bethlehem because he was threatened by the Messiah, who was foretold to be a great king.
Prophecies of Jesus? Nature
His preexistence ? the fact that the Son of God did not come into existence when He came in the flesh but that He has existed all the while.
He is to be called Lord
He will be Immanuel (?God with us?), looking forward to his incarnation
He will be a Prophet
He will be a Priest
He will be a Judge
He will be a King
He will be specially anointed of the Holy Spirit
He will have a zeal for God (the Father)
Prophecies About the Ministry and Death of Jesus
He will be preceded by a messenger ? John the Baptist
He will begin the ministry in Galilee
He will be a miracle worker
He will teach in parables
He will enter the temple
He will enter Jerusalem on a donkey
He will be a stumbling block for Jews
He will be a ?light? to the gentiles
He will rise from the dead
He will ascend to heaven
He will be seated at the right hand of God
Prophecies of the Death and Resurrection of Jesus
These prophecies were written during the period of five centuries but found their fulfillment in Jesus Christ in one 24-hour period.
He will be betrayed by a friend
He will be sold for 30 pieces of silver
Money will be thrown into God?s house
The price to be given for potter?s field
He will be forsaken by his disciples
He will be accused by false witnesses
He will be silent before His accusers
He will be wounded and bruised
He will be stricken and spit upon
He will be mocked
He will fall under the cross
He will be crucified ? His hands and feet will be pierced per Roman crucifixion procedures as the nails were driven through and into the cross beams to allow for the victims to hang. Isaiah predicted this hundreds of years before crucifixion had been invented by the Romans.
He will be crucified with thieves
He will pray for His persecutors
He will be rejected by His own people
He will be hated without a cause
His friends will stand far away
People will shake their heads
He will be stared upon
His garments will be taken off and gambled for
He will suffer thirst
Gall and vinegar will be offered him
He will cry out, feeling forsaken
He will be wholly committed to God
His bones will not be broken
He will be heartbroken (literally) ? Jesus? heart burst before his death on the cross.
His side will be pierced
There will be darkness over the land during His crucifixion
He will be buried in a rich man?s tomb

It would have been more helpfull if this was linked to actual books and chapter and verse, some are clearly psalms others from Iaiash.

Who can identify most?

Hi John
I think I have misunderstood you question I thought it was about the three days in the tomb but what you were after is the fulfilment of the scripture concerning our lord of which there are an abundance they start in Genesis and go all the way through to revelations.
You have listed quite a lot but of course there are many more and how unbelievers can say he is not who he says he is in the face of all these prophecies is beyond me.
Do you think it would be worth going through these prophecies from the beginning for there benefit we could start with.

Gen 3:15  And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
   
 

Many say the seed of the woman being Christ bruised satans head when he died on the cross and satan bruised Christs heal when he conspired to have him crucified.

Love and Peace
Dave
