Three Days

Jonah And The whaleThe Holy Spirit deity declared Jesus to be the Son of God by raising him from the dead. Jesus said in Matthew 12.40 that the only sign that the people would get would be the sign of Jonah or three days and nights in the belly of the whale before being reintroduced alive into the world. "For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth."

Resurrection Authenticated Jesus

Resurrection Of Jesus Saint Paul reminded his readers that the resurrection authenticated Jesus deity. Being raised showed that Jesus was without doubt the Son of God. Saint Paul wrote in Romans 1.4, that Jesus "through the Spirit of holiness was appointed the Son of God in power by his resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord." The Holy Spirit also asserted in 1 Timothy 3.16 "He appeared in the flesh, was vindicated by the Spirit." Death could not pin down Jesus. God interrupted and raised him up. In Acts 2.24 we read, "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."
