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.
