Why do the first Christians believe that Jesus was raised? There were three major reasons that the early Christians gave for believing the Resurrection: 1. The empty tomb 2. The appearances of the risen Jesus 3. The fulfillment of Scripture The problem with number 3, the fulfillment of Scripture, is that there is no explicit prophecy in the prophets that says that the Messiah will be raised on the third day, yet many of the New Testament writers say that Jesus was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures. So what exactly are they talking about? The answer is in the book of Jonah, which Jesus himself alludes to in Matthew 12 when he says “for as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the whale, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth” (Matthew 12:40). So why does Jesus allude to Jonah as a sign of his resurrection? There are two reasons. The first is that if you read the book of Jonah carefully you will notice that Jonah died in the belly of the fish, so it was his corpse that was spit out on dry land and brought back to life. The second reason is because Jonah’s preaching lead to the conversion of the entire wicked, pagan city of Nineveh. If you remember this when looking at Jesus, you will see that like Jonah, Jesus died and was resurrected and brought back to life on the third day. But even more than that, the proclamation of the Gospel brought about the eventual conversion of the entire Roman Empire, not just one pagan city. So what is the Sign of Jonah? It’s not just a miracle of the Resurrection, it's the miracle of the conversion of the pagans.
