comment How is it significant that Jesus rose on the 3rd day?
I agree he really was dead on the cross and I also agree we can over-study numbers in the bible. There are a few things that some of us have heard (to do with Jewish tradition of not really being dead until 3 days) but no evidence of it. If the answer is it's 3 because it's 3 then that's ok.

comment How is it significant that Jesus rose on the 3rd day?
I completely agree that it had to be 3 days because of the old testament (I mentioned Jonah in my question, but could have picked other passages including New Testament passages), but that just moves my question to why was it predicted to be 3 days. The question is What is significant about the number 3?

comment Why did Christ need to be the first person to be resurrected?
Not really an answer, but Colossians 1:18 says: And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy.

Because the question is on hold, I can't add a fully developed answer, but having sex before marriage is stealing something from that future persons husband/wife.
