On the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes and saw the place in the distance. Bible see other translations

“on the third day.” This is an important part of Isaac being a type of Christ. Jesus spent three days and three nights in the grave, dead (Matt. 12:40). This is the third day that Isaac has been as good as dead, Abraham intending to kill him but thinking that God would somehow raise him back up (Heb. 11:19).
