3 or 4 days

John 1-2 recounts a series of events starting with the Pharisees questioning John the Baptist. The next day John baptizes Jesus. The day after that John tells his disciples that Jesus is the Messiah. The next day Jesus desires to go to Galilee. Then,

“On the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there.  Now both Jesus and His disciples were invited to the wedding.” John 2:1-2

It’s not an accident that the wedding happened on the third day. If you look at all scripture references to ‘third day’ you see a pattern. There are dozens of scriptures.

On the third day – within 3,000 years from Jesus’ baptism the church will be complete and the marriage will have happened, the wicked will be destroyed in the second death, Jesus will come down in the sight of all the people, etc.

“Then the Lord said to Moses, “Go to the people and consecrate them today and tomorrow, and let them wash their clothes.  And let them be ready for the third day. For on the third day the Lord will come down upon Mount Sinai in the sight of all the people.  You shall set bounds for the people all around, saying, ‘Take heed to yourselves that you do not go up to the mountain or touch its base. Whoever touches the mountain shall surely be put to death.” Exodus 19:10-12
