ESV - 46 And said to them, "Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer and on the third day rise from the dead.

I humbly submit that there are numerous prophesied references contained in early scripture as to the coming Messiah, the Lord Himself in (Matthew 12:40) quoted (Jonah 1:17). (Psalms 16:10; Psalms 22:16; Psalms 22:18; Zechariah 12:10) Speak of His suffering Isaiah the messianic prophet is the most quoted prophet in later written scripture and the details contained within (Isaiah 53:) alone are amazingly accurate. I submit the Creator placed these nuggets through out His message (scripture) much like puzzle pieces, that once put together reveal His glorious plan and mercy for the creation.(Luke 24:44) That also must be argued away separately by the forces of darkness (labor intensive) and missing just one reference, spells their destruction, as His Word will not return void. (2 Corinthians 10:5; Matthew 5:17-18) In the Lord's freedom a sheepdog standing.............warrior on
I believe that this passage Luke 24:46 "And He said to them, so it is written that the Christ would suffer and on the third day rise from the dead..." is cross referenced in the Old Testament book of Hose a. Hosea 6:2 says,"He has struck us and He will bind up our wounds; after two days He will revive us, on the third day He will raise us up and we shall live in His Presence." Christian tradition since Tertullian has applied this text to Christ's resurrection on the third day.
The Old Testament mentions a number of books that have been lost to history. One of these books probably contains the reference of Luke 24:26. Examples of these books, among others, are Book of the Wars of the Lord, Numbers 21:14 Book of Nathan the Prophet, 1 Chronicles 29:29 Book of Gad the Seer, 1 Chronicles 29:29 Story of Prophet Iddo, 2 Chronicles 13:22 Another example of a missing reference is the Nazarene prophecy source for Matthew 2:23 "...He shall be called a Nazarene." Although Hosea 6:2 may have a poetical or spiritual application to Christ's resurrection, its direct literal meaning refers to the return of the 10 lost tribes to the Holy Land, and is in close agreement with Ezek 37:1-28.
I submit that the quote Jesus cites in Luke 24:46-47 is too highly specific in its wording to be a re-arrangement of Hosea 6:2. It lacks for instance the mention of preaching repentance to the nations, The explanation that it is instead from a book now missing from history makes the most sense. As to the idea that Hosea 6:2 is about Christ being raised cannot be supported by the context which says: "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. 2After two days He will revive us; on the third day He will restore us, that we may live in His presence. 3Let us acknowledge the Lord; let us press on to acknowledge Him. As surely as the sun rises, he will appear; he will come to us like the winter rains, like the spring rains that water the earth.” Clearly it is Christ who appears and comes to us like the rising sun and not the one who is has to return to the Lord and thus be raised up. Those passages are about exactly who they say they are about-- US! It is we who have to return to Him and who will be raised up when He appears to US like the rising sun. It even uses the term "Whenever I would restore the fortunes of My people,.." at the end of chapter 6 and the beginning of chapter 7 to prove that this is about His people being restored, not Christ. This is in fact about the Day of the Lord when we are restored and when the Lord appears like the rising sun at dawn. It is found for instance in Joel 2 which says: Let all who live in the land tremble, for the day of the Lord is coming. It is close at hand— 2a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and blackness. Like dawn spreading across the mountains a large and mighty army comes, such as never was in ancient times nor ever will be in ages to come. The two days that it takes to revive us are explained in the statement: "With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day." of 2nd Peter 3. This is about the two thousand years for His people to be restored after the Cross. Hosea 6 proclaims, "On the third day, He will raise us up", and is about all those in Christ, dead and living, who will be raised up on the Day of the Lord beginning a third 'day' or thousand years, known as the Millennial reign of Christ.
