  • In Accordance with the Scriptures

    1 Corinthians 15:3-4
    For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures
    Which portions of Scripture did the apostle have in mind when he wrote this?
    You were made to think. It will do you good to think; to develop your powers by study. God designed that religion should require thought, intense thought, and should thoroughly develop our powers of thought.

    For being raised on the third day, maybe this one:

    Hosea 6:1-2 -

    1 "Come, let us return to the LORD.
    He has torn us to pieces
    but he will heal us;
    he has injured us
    but he will bind up our wounds.

    2 After two days he will revive us;
    on the third day he will restore us,
    that we may live in his presence.

    That's the most likely candidate I could find after doing a search throughout the Old Testament for "third day".
    When the plain sense of Scripture make sense, seek no other sense.

      I'm sure there are lots of Scriptures Paul has in mind.
      These may include things like Psalm 110, or Isaiah 52, or the passover narrative, or Psalm 22. However one good candidate Scripture would be the book of Jonah. Jesus refers repeatedly to the "sign of Jonah" as referring to Himself.
