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