Where in the scriptures does it speak about Jesus rising again the third day?

Matthew มัทธิว 12:39-40 39But he answered them, “An evil and adulterous generation seeks for a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah.

39พระองค์จึงตรัสตอบเขาว่า   “คนชาติชั่วและคิดทรยศต่อพระเจ้าแสวงหาหมายสำคัญ   และจะไม่ทรงโปรดให้หมายสำคัญแก่เขา   เว้นไว้แต่หมายสำคัญของโยนาห์ผู้เผยพระวจนะ

40For just as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

40ด้วยว่า   โยนาห์ได้อยู่ในท้องปลามหึมาสามวันสามคืน     ฉันใด   บุตรมนุษย์จะอยู่ในท้องแผ่นดิน   สามวันสามคืนฉันนั้น

So the third day and rising again, Jonah.  But if we go back to the book of Genesis, we even hear God saying to Abraham, "Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac and offer him as a sacrifice on the mount that I will show you" (Genesis 22:2). Now, when God said to Abraham "take now thy son thine only son," we have a match up with John 3:16, "For God so loved the world He gave His only begotten Son." And you remember that Abraham gathered his servants and Isaac, and they began to journey from the area of Hebron towards Jerusalem. And they had journeyed for three days when they came into view of the mount that the Lord showed unto Abraham. Mount Moriah, which is in Jerusalem. During that three-day journey in the mind of Abraham, it was as if Isaac was as dead.

We read in Hebrews, chapter 11 that by faith Abraham offered Isaac believing or knowing that God, if necessary, would raise him from the dead. For God had said, "Through Isaac shall thy seed be called," and Isaac at this point did not have any children. And so Abraham had such confidence in the promise of God that through Isaac shall thy seed be called that he was willing to obey the Lord, if necessary, to offer him as a sacrifice, knowing that God would raise him from the dead. So it was Abraham's faith in the resurrection that caused him to be willing to obey this command of God.

As they left the servants and journeyed together, father and son, toward Mount Moriah, Isaac said, "Dad, we're missing something. We've got the fire and the wood for the sacrifice, but we don't have any sacrifice. Where's the sacrifice, Dad?" And Abraham said, "Son, the Lord will provide Himself a sacrifice." And so they journeyed together, and Abraham built the altar and he placed Isaac thereon. And as he raised the knife, the Lord said, "Okay, Abraham, far enough. Now I know that you will not withhold from Me. Behold there is a ram caught in the thicket. Go ahead and offer the ram as a sacrifice."

Now the interesting thing is Abraham said to the servants, "You wait here, and I and the lad will go and will sacrifice and will come again." Abraham told the servants, "We're coming back. I and the boy are going to sacrifice and we're going to come back again." Abraham knew that somehow, someway, if necessary, God would even raise Isaac from the dead. Very interesting that 2,000 years later on the top of Mount Moriah, the very same mount where Abraham offered Isaac, God provided Himself a sacrifice. And God's only begotten Son was crucified on Mount Moriah in the spot where Abraham was toing to offer Isaac as a sacrifice. And so Abraham was only in a way acting out drama, of what God would do in the future and prophesied of that day in the future when God would provide Himself the sacrifice. "In the mount of the Lord it shall be seen," and it was.

So according to the scriptures, the gospel I preached: Christ died, He was buried, He rose again the third day. After His resurrection,For more see www.wdbydana.com/sermon.html
