Matthew 26:1, John 16:16, 20, Mark 14:28
Jesus said to His disciples, You know that after two days the Passover is coming, and the Son of man will be delivered up to be crucified. A little while, and you will see me no more; again a little while, and you will see me. You will weep and lament, but your sorrow will turn into joy. But after I am raised up, I will go before you into Galilee.
1 Corinthians 15:3b-6a
Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, he was buried, he was raised on the third day according to the Scripture, and he appeared to Peter and then to the twelve. Then he appeared to more than five hundred of our brothers at once.
God exalted Him to the highest place and gave Him a name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus, every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth, and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father.
Romans 6:4, 1 Corinthians 15:22
…we were therefore buried with Him through baptism into death in order that just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive.
…you may know how vast are the resources of his power open to us who trust in him. That power is like the working of his mighty strength, which He exerted in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age, but also in the one to come.
