Old Testament

Hosea 6:2

2 "After two days he will revive us;
on the third day he will restore us,
that we may live in his presence."

The Psalm

Psalm 73:24-25

24 "You guide me with your counsel,
and afterward you will take me into glory.
25 Whom have I in heaven but you?
And earth has nothing I desire besides you."

The Epistle

Acts 2:23-24

23 "This man was handed over to you by God’s deliberate plan and foreknowledge;
and you, with the help of wicked men,[a] put him to death by nailing him to the cross.
24 But God raised him from the dead, freeing him from the agony of death, because
it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him."

Acts 2:23 Or of those not having the law (that is, Gentiles)

The Gospel

Matthew 16:21-26

Jesus Predicts His Death

21 "From that time on Jesus began to explain to his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things at the hands of the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and on the third day be raised to life.
22 Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. “Never, Lord!” he said. “This shall never happen to you!”

23 Jesus turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the concerns of God, but merely human concerns.”

24 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. 25 For whoever wants to save their life[a] will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it. 26 What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul?"

Matthew 16:25 The Greek word means either life or soul; also in verse 26.
