Circumstantial Evidence of the Resurrection
Page 9: Jesus Foretold His Death and Resurrection

The fact that Christ was to be crucified and resurrected was foretold several times prior to it taking place. For example, Matthew records:

"From that time Jesus Christ began to show His disciples that He must go to Jerusalem, and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised up on the third day." (Matthew 16:21)

In fact, the Jewish leaders were so concerned about it that they petitioned Pilot for guards to protect the tomb. Foretelling of the resurrection shows that not only was it an expected event, but also that it was all part of God's plan. In fact, nearly 1,000 years earlier David had recorded this same event in a prophetic Psalm,

"For Thou wilt not abandon my soul to Sheol; Neither wilt Thou allow Thy Holy One to undergo decay." (Psalm 16:10)
