This section of
Scripture tells us of the Jews' wanting a sign for Jesus' sayings. He
gave one sign, the sign of the destruction of the temple, which He would
raise up in three days.
This made no sense, as the Jews thought
He spoke of the temple in Jerusalem, when actually He spoke of His body.
His body would die, but it would rise again. It was not until after His
resurrection that the disciples realized He was speaking of His body.
This is a great mystery, but it is a great joy to believers.
His resurrection, the disciples began to believe Scriptures that before
his resurrection were a mystery. Now the mystery has been revealed, and
we now know the Gospel and praise God for his finished work on Calvary,
in the grave, and in His resurrection.
