Three Days

In Bible class today, Pastor mentioned how Jonah was a picture of Christ in his own self, in that he was "dead" and then came alive again when the fish vomited him out onto dry land. Saul/Paul was the same: Saul "died" on the road to Damascus and then was made alive again.

Interestingly enough, Jonah was in the belly of the fish for three days, and Paul sat waiting for Ananias to arrive for, also, three days.

  1. You know what else? (Only tangentially related)

    The human body, after death, can be kept for viewing and for vigil for about three days without embalming, before enough odor and decay begins to make things unseemly.

    Interesting. (I won't go into an embalming rant on your blog in the interests of those who *aren't* fascinated by how we treat our dead! )
