For as Jonah was in the belly of the great fish three days and three nights, so the Son of Man will be in the heart of the earth three days and three nights.
From then on Jesus began to point out to His disciples that He must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things from the elders, chief priests, and scribes, be killed, and be raised the third day.
As they were coming down from the mountain, Jesus commanded them, "Don't tell anyone about the vision until the Son of Man is raised from the dead."
They will kill Him, and on the third day He will be raised up." And they were deeply distressed.
Then they will hand Him over to the Gentiles to be mocked, flogged, and crucified, and He will be resurrected on the third day."
Then Jesus said to them, "Tonight all of you will run away because of Me, for it is written: I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock will be scattered.
But after I have been resurrected, I will go ahead of you to Galilee."
and said, "Sir, we remember that while this deceiver was still alive, He said, 'After three days I will rise again.'
Then He began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests, and the scribes, be killed, and rise after three days.
"He is not here, but He has been resurrected! Remember how He spoke to you when He was still in Galilee,
saying, 'The Son of Man must be betrayed into the hands of sinful men, be crucified, and rise on the third day'?"
And they remembered His words.
and when they didn't find His body, they came and reported that they had seen a vision of angels who said He was alive.
Then He told them, "These are My words that I spoke to you while I was still with you-- that everything written about Me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets, and the Psalms must be fulfilled."
Jesus answered, "Destroy this sanctuary, and I will raise it up in three days."
This is why the Father loves Me, because I am laying down My life so I may take it up again.
"Don't be alarmed," he told them. "You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has been resurrected! He is not here! See the place where they put Him.
Peter, however, got up and ran to the tomb. When he stooped to look in, he saw only the linen cloths. So he went home, amazed at what had happened.
The two were running together, but the other disciple outran Peter and got to the tomb first.
Stooping down, he saw the linen cloths lying there, yet he did not go in.
Then, following him, Simon Peter came also. He entered the tomb and saw the linen cloths lying there.
The wrapping that had been on His head was not lying with the linen cloths but was folded up in a separate place by itself.
The other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, then entered the tomb, saw, and believed.
For they still did not understand the Scripture that He must rise from the dead.
