As we have seen earlier, Christ’s birth, earthly ministry, betrayal, and crucifixion can all be described in triplets reflecting His triune nature. This pattern continues through His resurrection and beyond!
Jesus spoke of leaving His earthly body and entering His glorified body as being “perfected” on the third day. This was the most significant of the three miracles He told the Pharisees to relay to Herod, whom they said was threatening His life. The other two miracles were casting out devils and curing the sick (Luke 13: 31-32).
