[TYPE OF PROPHECY] (Beresheit 22:4)  Then on the third day Avraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place afar off.  And Avraham said unto his young men, Abide ye here with the ass; and I and the lad will go yonder and worship, and come again to you.

Beresheit 22:5:  Vs. 22:5  We will . . . worship, and come again to you. Lit., we will worship, and we will come again to you. Avraham's confidence that Yitzak would return with him from the place of sacrifice stemmed from his explicit belief in resurrection (cf. Heb. 11:17-19).

(Shemot 19:15)  And he said unto the people, Be ready against the third day: come not at your wives.

(Shemot 19:16)  And it came to pass on the third day in the morning, that there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud; so that all the people that was in the camp trembled.

(Vayikra 7:17)  But the remainder of the flesh of the sacrifice on the third day shall be burnt with fire.

(Vayikra 7:18)  And if any of the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offerings be eaten at all on the third day, it shall not be accepted, neither shall it be imputed unto him that offereth it: it shall be an abomination, and the soul that eateth of it shall bear his iniquity.

(Vayikra 19:6)  It shall be eaten the same day ye offer it, and on the morrow: and if ought remain until the third day, it shall be burnt in the fire.

1 Shemuel 20:12:  Vs. 20:12  any time. Better, this time.

(1 Shemuel 30:1)  And it came to pass, when David and his men were come to Ziklag on the third day, that the Amalekites had invaded the south, and Ziklag, and smitten Ziklag, and burned it with fire;

The Third day can be a curse to those......  :-(

1 Shemuel 30:1:  Vs. 30:1  The Amalekites, whom Saul failed to destroy completely (15:2-3, 10-19), continued to be a curse to the Yisraelites. south. The Negev (cf. 27:10).

2 Shemuel 1:2:  Vs. 1:2  clothes rent (torn) . . . earth upon his head. Signs of mourning, because of the death of Saul.

The Third Day - Yeshua Has Risen

[TYPE OF PROPHECY CONCEALLED] (Ester 5:1)  Now it came to pass on the third day, that Ester put on her royal apparel, and stood in the inner court of the Melekh's Beit, over against the Melekh's Beit: and the Melekh sat upon his royal throne in the royal Beit, over against the gate of the Beit.

Ester 5:1:  Vs. 5:1  on the third day. A part of a day was counted as a whole day, explaining how the fast could extend for three days, night and day (4:16), and yet terminate on the third day. See note on Matt. 12:40.

(Hoshea 6:2)  After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.

Hoshea 6:2:  Vs. 6:2  After two days . . . the third day. I.e., in a short period of time (see Luke 13:32-33; 2 Peter 3:8).

[TYPE OF PROPHECY] (Yonah 1:17)  Now ADONAI had prepared a great fish to swallow up Yonah. And Yonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.

Yonah 1:17:  Vs. 1:17  We do not know what kind of great fish (mistranslated "whale" in Matt. 12:40) Elohim prepared, though there are whales and sharks capable of swallowing a man. three days and three nights does not require 72 hours but only one 24-hour day plus parts of two other days. Our Yah said His burial would be the same length of time. See note on Matt. 12:40.

[TYPE OF PROPHECY FULFILLED](MattiYahu 12:40)  For as Yonah was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the BEN of Adam be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

Matthew 12:40:  Vs. 12:40  three days and three nights. This phrase does not necessarily require that 72 hours elapse between Mashiach's death and resurrection, for Yehudah reckoned part of a day to be as a whole day. Thus this prophecy can be properly fulfilled if the impalation occurred on Friday. However, the statement does require a historical Yonah who was actually swallowed by a great fish.

(MattiYAHU 16:21)  From that time forth began Yeshua to show unto his Talmudim, how that he must go unto Yerushalayim, and suffer many things of the elders and chief Kohans and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.

MattiYAHU 16:21:  Vs. 16:21  This is MattiYAHU's first prediction of the Passion (see also 17:22; 20:18). Notice the Bamidbar of specific details in this prediction.

(MattiYAHU 17:23)  And they shall kill him, and the third day he shall be raised again. And they were exceeding sorry.

(MattiYAHU 20:19)  And shall deliver him to the Goyim to mock, and to scourge, and to impale him: and the third day he shall rise again.

(MattiYAHU 27:64)  Command therefore that the sepulchre be made sure until the third day, lest his Talmudim come by night, and steal him away, and say unto the people, He is risen from the dead: so the last error shall be worse than the first.

MattiYAHU 27:64:  Vs. 27:64  error. Better, deception.

(Mark 9:31)  For he taught his Talmudim, and said unto them, The BEN Adam is delivered into the hands of men, and they shall kill him; and after that he is killed, he shall rise the third day.

Mark 9:31:  Vs. 9:31  they shall kill him. The second prediction of His death (see 8:31; 10:33-34).

(Mark 10:34)  And they shall mock him, and shall scourge him, and shall spit upon him, and shall kill him: and the third day he shall rise again.

(Luke 9:22)  Saying, The BEN Adam must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders and chief Kohans and scribes, and be slain, and be raised the third day.

(Luke 13:32)  And he said unto them, Go ye, and tell that fox, Hinei, I cast out devils, and I do cures to day and to morrow, and the third day I shall be perfected.

Luke 13:32:  Vs. 13:32  that fox. Herod Antipas is described as a fox, known for its use of cunning deceit to achieve its aims.

(Luke 18:33)  And they shall scourge him, and put him to death: and the third day he shall rise again.

(Luke 24:7)  Saying, The BEN Adam must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.

(Luke 24:21)  But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Yisrael: and beside all this, to day is the third day since these things were done.

(Luke 24:46)  And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Mashiach to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:

(Yohanan 2:1)  And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Yeshua was there:

Vs. 2:1  A wedding feast often lasted a week.

(Acts 10:40)  Him Elohim raised up the third day, and showed him openly;

(Acts 27:19)  And the third day we cast out with our own hands the tackling of the ship.

(1 Corinthians 15:4)  And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

1 Corinthians 15:4:  Vs. 15:4  that he was buried. Certain proof that Mashiach actually died. that he rose again is attested to by the main witnesses and the perfect tense, which indicates that Yeshua is still alive.
