Christ rose on the third day (1 Cor. 15:4)

“Christ was buried.

He was raised

On the third day

In accordance

With the scriptures.”

καὶ ὅτι ἐτάφη, καὶ ὅτι ἐγήγερται τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ τρίτῃ κατὰ τὰς γραφάς,

Paul further said that Christ was buried (καὶ ὅτι ἐτάφη).  Then he was raised (καὶ ὅτι ἐγήγερται) on the third day (τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ τρίτῃ), also according to the scriptures (κατὰ τὰς γραφάς).  Paul clarified that Jesus Christ was buried.  Then he arose on the third day, according to the biblical scriptures, without any indication as to the specific indication about the exact biblical writings.  The emphasis was on the fact that Jesus was really buried.  Then he was really raised from the death according to some unspecified holy writings.  Jesus Christ really died, was buried, and rose from the dead.  This was the basic kerygmatic message.  Do you believe that Jesus Christ was buried and rose from the dead?
