Matthew 16:21 From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.

John 2:19 Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. John 2:20 Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days? John 2:21 But he spake of the temple of his body. John 2:22 When therefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this unto them; and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.

(The wording of Christ is symbolic, explained by John. If symbolic, is the temple of His body referring to the church, or Christ’s physical flesh? It could be both, so see 1 Cor. 12.)

If these is the only verses (John 10:17-18) we can actually use to ‘prove’ that Christ raised Himself, then please provide another prophetic witness, as this is only one (John).
