“After they have
They will kill him.
On the third day,
He will rise again.”
καὶ μαστιγώσαντες ἀποκτενοῦσιν αὐτόν, καὶ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ τρίτῃ ἀναστήσεται,
Luke indicated that Jesus said that after they had flogged (καὶ μαστιγώσαντες) the Son of Man, they would kill him (ἀποκτενοῦσιν αὐτόν). However, on the third day (καὶ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ τρίτῃ), he would rise again (ἀναστήσεται). Mark, chapter 10:34, and Matthew, chapter 20:19, have something similar. Mark indicated that Jesus said that they would mock or ridicule him (καὶ ἐμπαίξουσιν αὐτῷ). They would spit on him (καὶ ἐμπτύσουσιν αὐτῷ). They would flog or scourge him (καὶ μαστιγώσουσιν αὐτὸν). Finally, they would kill him (καὶ ἀποκτενοῦσιν). However, after three days (καὶ μετὰ τρεῖς ἡμέρας), he would rise again (ἀναστήσεται), as here in Luke. Matthew indicated that Jesus said that they would mock or ridicule the Son of Man (εἰς τὸ ἐμπαῖξαι). They would scourge him (καὶ μαστιγῶσαι). Finally, they would crucify him (καὶ σταυρῶσαι), the common form of Roman execution. Matthew was the only gospel writer here to mention the way of death, the crucifixion. However, on the 3rd day, the Son of Man would be raised up (καὶ τῇ τρίτῃ ἡμέρᾳ ἐγερθήσεται). Obviously, Jesus was talking about himself, but he always used the term Son of Man in talking about his future suffering, death, and resurrection. What do you think about the resurrection of Jesus on the 3rd day?
